                                                        Had a wonderful anniversary dinner last night, that was made by a superb waitress, who made our meals table side, with Caesar salad, steak Dianne and bananas foster and a great wine recommendation for Malbec with the steak. Food and service was outstanding and highly recommend for a great dinner experience. A special thanks to Senatra for making our dinner so good, with superb tableside cooking.

                                                        Service ruined our meal. Dishes, not removed. Wrong order. Disappearing waiter. Entrees were overcooked. Manager was soooo defensive. Beef carpaccio was excellent. If the Caesar salad hadn’t been overdressed would have been excellent as well. There are far better restaurants to spend your money at.

                                                        The Library is a truly outstanding restaurant, in all aspects -- ambience, service, and food. It is expensive, but that's to be expected.

                                                        The price for lobster was ridiculous. We were told $95 and was charged $125. $95 was high but $125!

                                                        It is very cute restaurant, nice and calm atmosphere, professional staff. Mike was very pleasant and knowledgeable, they make good margaritas and (now my favorite) peach mango mojito. The appetizers were good so was the Caesar salad but was a little disappointed with the main dish, I got halibut special and it was dry and not very tasty especially for that price, but orange duck was really good and cooked perfectly. Over all it was a good experience and pleasant evening.

                                                        This is the place to eat in Myrtle Beach. From the moment we hit the door we felt special. Ryan, our waiter, was a true professional who expertly described the features and special notes from the chef. We especially liked how the chef preferred the entire order be placed at one time. We started off with french onion soup and escargot. Both amazing. Moved to the duck breast with carrots and roasted potatoes. Then finished off the meal with a table side banana foster. It could have done without the puff pastry but it was still amazing. On the way out, another server showed us the door, held it open, and gave us a key lime candy to wish us well. Best dining experience I've had in a while.

                                                        Ambiance was great, as was our server Bob. Food compared to Bistro 90 or Ruth Chris was not great. Filet was tender, but did not have much flavor. Lobster tasted very salty. Carrots were good. Doubt we will eat there again, but Will definitely go to piano bar next door again.

                                                        Good food, terrible service. MichAel the server was extremely unprofessional with his flip attitude, dropped two “F” bombs at the table. Asked for chilled martini and came on the rocks. Ordered chicken and Michael tried twice upgrade me to the lobster and filet at three times the price. If I wanted lobster I would have ordered it. I did food service for ten years and hate when servers act like they are all that. PS: the fireplace video of flames was so tacky.

                                                        Our waiter Bobby was great. All recommendations were great and his knowledge explaining the special offerings was on point.

                                                        We had a party of six. Our service and food were outstanding. It’s one of the best meals my husband and I have had in a long time! We highly recommend!

                                                        This was our first time and were very pleased with everything. I have just a comment. We were served carrots and potatoes. I feel (not much bigger than a marble) potato should be addressed.

                                                        Unquestionably, this was The Best Seafood meal that we have ever had. Ever. My wife had the halibut (special) smothered in a crab champagne sauce which followed the vinagerette salad. I had the similar salmon in the same sauce after a ceasar’s salad. Both were exceptionally well-prepared. Our server, Bobby, was very helpful with dining suggestions and very attentive to us. We will definitely return to this gem in Myrtle Beach.

                                                        First time here. The food was amazing especially the crab cocktail and the house salad. Husband had the duck which he raved about and he is a chef. I had the fish special which was ok. But that’s my fault I should have ordered something else like the chicken (which I wanted to) but my husband said oh don’t order chicken. Next time I am not listening. And the raspberry champagne cheesecake was to die for. Service beyond excellent. A little pricey but we will be back especially on special occasions.
