Early on a Wednesday night was fairly empty and we were given the best seat in the restaurant! Service was prompt and food was outstanding! We really enjoyed the crab cake, filet, and lobster mac and cheese (which came as a fairly large portion!) The view of the Queen Mary was amazing and it was an overall great experience! Kudos to our waiter Austin and his team for making it such a lovely dinner!!

Never thought that a place like this would exist in humble Lomita. If this is a sign of things to come, I am all for it! I am not a "eat steak out" kind of person, only because I am somewhat particular about how steak is prepared - I know how to cook a steak and I am usually disappointed at a restaurant. Steak Library was a revelation and a 10/10 Interesting cocktails, they were all wonderful, interesting takes on classic favorites such as a Sweet and Savory Bone Marrow appetizer, garlic fried rice and creamed spinach.

We had a wonderful evening , with handcrafted, very delicious cocktails. The food was spectacular, especially the beef bourguignon and the catch of the day. Thank you very much to our host, he took very good care of us and was very attentive.
