    It was my husband’s birthday and we just lost his dad on December 21st so I wanted to do something special for him. It was wonderful. Our waitress was exceptional. She (Shanatra) was so sweet and caring. And she wasn’t even aware of the circumstances. I can’t say enough about how wonderful she was. Thank y’all for making our night special. We will certainly be back!

    Wonderful evening! Was greeted promptly and host was friendly. Waiter was very nice, accommodating and explained dinner options in detail. Food was very good- filet and 2 lobster tails. Also had salad, and shrimp cocktail. All delish! Desserts prepared at table! We watched a sweet young lady preparing Banana Foster and had we not been so full, we definitely would have ordered dessert! The 2 we seen being prepared looked o good. We will definitely be going back in the future!

    Early reservation - 5PM - had the entire place to ourselves for better part of an hour. Service was Outstanding! Our waiter, Ryan, knew his menu, specials, wines, and cocktails and provided great insights to pairings. Escargot appetizer was nicely done, as was the Haddock special entree. Long Island Duck aux Cerises was a bit overcooked for my taste. Raspberry sorbet and Cheese Cake desserts were delicious. Patrons and noise level picked up as we were finishing our meal.

    The food was excellent, as always. The crab cocktail was delicious. Our server brought us horseradish and it was a perfect touch with the crab. The filet mignon with the blue cheese topping was superb. Our server, Senatra Johnson was attentive and timed the delivery for each course perfectly.

    The setting is very intimate and subdued. There are about 12 tables with two of the large tables in the middle. We were able to talk while not hearing other table patrons or their conversations. The food is well-prepared. Soups and salads excellent. Steaks were as ordered. Desserts large.

    The Library never disappoints. One of the reason is the wonderful waiters. So glad we got the same waiter as last time. And, those that assisted him with the meal were also great. I recommend this restaurant all the time. Thanks for a wonderful time with my spouse and my brother and his wife.

    Our “go to” place for Thanksgiving dinner. Excellent service, perfect environment for a quality meal. Perfect appetizers, incredible food, and “to die for” deserts. Add to that a perfect selection of quality wines, and this is hard to beat without getting on a plane! A bit pricey, but well worth the price. Request Myke Judy as your “Professional Waiter” (he truly is!) and you will definitely not be disappointed!

    The Library never fails to amaze. The food was excellent and prepared exactly to our specifications. Our waitperson, Senatra Johnson, was attentive and made great recommendations. The atmosphere was quiet. Unlike many steak restaurants you can carry on a conversation without having to shout to be heard. We highly recommend it.
