Wow. Spent a lazy afternoon on the terrace drinking frozen margaritas and tequila and having zesty finger food. Loved it great service and great company.

I have to re-evaluate my previous review. Love, love the cocktails. Love the decor & outlook. What is it with the food! Just not up to scratch. Small servings & the new Autumn menu was limiting. My friends ordered the steak & were not asked how they wanted it done. It was far too rare & when the waiter could see that not much was eaten he offered the excuse that the chef wants it to be rare. I found the service very much like this - very pushy. The waiter was almost ordering for us. I would go back for drinks but not for a meal.

Food tastes ok. However the portions were extremely small, more like kids meal size or smaller! That makes it pricey, so not value for money. Not BYO either. Service was very bad. I think there was just one main waiter taking food order for the whole restaurant. He disappeared for very long periods of time. There were many other drinks waiter but their job was to bring your food and drinks and clear your table. They were not allowed to take food orders! So we had to wait a very long time to place orders and also a long time to get our bill. After the bill finally came, no one bothered to come and collect our money. So in the end we had to take the bill to the counter on our way out. Definitely not returning.

Not great. The drink menu covers still say The Old Library, but it's called 1908 now and has a set price menu along with some options to order. There were 3 of us with three courses. We sent 4 plates back. Once main and all 3 deserts went uneaten.

Average food and bad service.

Someone from another table came up to swap horror stories and ask what we sent back / told us what they'd sent back. That was a first for us!

Dinner and drinks for 3 cost $448.00.
