We loved it. The flavours were interesting and bold, but delicious. I just wish that we'd had time to take our time over it.

    Unimpressive. Nothing was terrible but nothing was great either other than it wasn't crowded and it becomes increasingly obvious why it wasn't on a Friday evening. The food was average and so was service. The waiter did not offer for us to taste the wine from a corkscrew bottle and the second bottle had a broker cork... One can clearly see a microwave in the kitchen from the diners' table. Extremely unlikely to return.

    The starters were good. The main courses were no better than anything I could have knocked up in the kitchen myself. Unimaginative and expensive. The surroundings were quirky, but that's not enough to make a good experience.

    We loved all of it! Ambience drinks food and service. We are already planning to make the next reservation.

    Very friendly people, and food of great quality and quantity. Can extend the menu a little bit, for more choices.

    Although there was some confusion since we were had booked the restaurant which was not available, we were accommodated very quickly and efficiently by a most helpful, charming young lady who prepared a table upstairs. We had an excellent lunch and this is to be recommended!

    I met a friend for dinner at Library. Lovely setting and great food. We had the three courses and a cocktail for £35 offer, which was great value. Let down slightly by a poor coffee, but this was quickly replaced.

    Wonderful ambience and even better food. The chef was super accommodating by adapting a risotto to be dairy-free and it was very delicious. Portions were large and everything was tasty. Will definitely be back!

    Went to the Library for dinner with a friend that I hadn't seen in ages- she being a new mother and had to escape the pizza express dining experiences. So the LIBRARY was ideal. It is tucked away in Covent Garden and quiet in an exclusive way so we could catch up. The service was attentive and the food was good- we both had the sea bass with the chocolate fondant for dessert. The wine list was pleasing with a good range of new and old world wines.
