    The cocktails! Just amazing. I had their Kyoto Martini at their bar next door, MAP Maison, and then when we moved to dinner at La Bibliothèque I had “Perception of Beauty” which which was lush and a real beauty of flavour. I enjoyed all the food from the appetisers all the way through to dessert. Amazing! I will definitely be back. Thank you!

    Having lived in this neighbourhood for several years I’ve always struggled to find a local go-to restaurant for any occasion. La Bibliothèque has all of that. It’s a restaurant you can dine in whatever the occasion really; chilled weekday dinner or a spectacular eating experience when you want to celebrate something.

    I’ve dined here a few times now recently and it always lives up to expectations. Service is always spot on and I like that they change dishes on their menus after seasonality and availability.

    This is the second time I have been and it was as amazing as the first time. The set menu is such great value, and oh the bread. The wine matching was a lovely accompaniment and the explanations really helped. The venue is beautiful and seemed perfect for every type of occasion.

    Food and wine pairing was great, my guest had the sake pairing, I paid for the taster menu in advance on open table but when I was presented the bill the staff member made out I ordered some groupon type thing when he gave me 50% when in fact I had paid in advance. Made me look to be cheap in front of my guest and when I said I had paid in advance I got a that’s not possible from the staff!

    Pretentious and not worth the money. Trying to deliver on “fine dining” experience while failing to understand basics - don’t let the galley pictures fool you.
