    The sitting and ambiance was enjoyable. The staff was knowledgeable but cost of the tasting was not commensurate with the amount of tastings offered (3). Five tastings would have been more appropriate for the cost. I attended the same event 5 years ago and the experience was much better, more offerings and less of a scripted event.

    Experienced the scotch tasting held every Friday at 6 p.m. Great company even though most were strangers. Be aware that food consisted of 5 tapas or hors devours. Definitely eat before arriving to remain focus on the lesson at hand.

    This was our third year in a row visiting the Scotch Library and it is the event that everyone looks forward to after Thanksgiving. Pairing our individual palates to the various scotches is delightful and expands our interest in this fascinating world.

    Greg was an excellent bar tender. He really knows his Scotch and was very helpful in matching our taste to different Scotch. He also had great stories about Scotch, Scotland and their distilleries. It was a fun time and we will go back.

    I had been excited and waiting to try this place out based on previous reviews, my love of scotch, and it was my birthday. I made an 8 pm reservation, got there about 7 or 8 minutes early, and the gentleman there was helping a large table of about 6 or so. He told me he would be with us soon, and I accepted that because I wanted the same 1 on 1 service. (Mind you that table, and mine with only myself and my boyfriend were the only 2 tables with anyone at them). When the gentleman who works there finished with the other table he came over to us, and asked what we preferred. I stated the Highlands were my favorite, and what I typically drink. He grabbed 2 bottles & 2 glasses sat down and told us how to do a tasting, then walked away. He never came back, didn't provide us with any other options, didn't say or do anything. Another 2 men came in for their reservation and he went to them, again not ever coming back to check on us. I have never been so completely disappointed in service, or such a huge letdown for something that I had anticipated for months. We paid close to $90.00 for 2 shots of scotch and got zero service & I am so bummed out that the 1 thing I wanted to do for my birthday was ruined.

    I have never had such a humiliating dining experience. I have participated in this experience many times, but was not prepared for how the evening transpired and I should have just left. I would only return if the regular Librarian were conducting the experience. I did not deserve the treatment. No guest would deserve such treatment.

    My 89-year old mother is a scotch lover. Our daughter and son-in-law bought her a gift card to the Scotch Library for Christmas. She absolutely loved the entire experience! Greg greeted us, shared his knowledge and passion for scotch, made recommendations and sat & chatted with us for the evening. We discovered some new scotches and had a wonderful time. We did not have any food hence the rating.

    They have a huge selection of Scotch's and the host is extremely knowledgeable, the issue is its in the lobby of the hotel where they sometimes have live music and it was loud and people were screaming. So its good try Scotch but the lighting is bad and the seats aren't terribly comfortable, it would be better if they enclosed it and made it more intimate.

    The scotch presentation was good but I was disappointed because it was all about blended scotch where I was expecting a presentation of single malts. Most of the scotch library is single malt scotches. The price was much to high for this tasting. The Open Table web site said the tasting was $55. The actual price was $65 plus a 20% service charge plus tax for a grand total of $87. Hate those hidden charges. The appetizers were not paired with any of the scotches which made no sense. I would not recommend this tasting because it did not give enough information on the tasting

    Loved the selection of scotch at this neat specialty venue. Very intimate and server was very informative but did not like his attitude when I tried to order an additional final sample of scotch after having 3 as he seemed to imply they only served three samples and not more although we were staying in hotel and not driving. Ruined the experience.
