They accommodated 114 swimmers, parents and coaches with a pasta buffet and children's menu. The staff was easy to work with and handled rude parents who did not RSVP with grace. They earned gold stars that night. Even folks who don't like chicken Alfredo went back for seconds.

Having an early flight out of IND, I stayed at La Quinta across the street from this restaurant bar. I also had a coupon for a free dessert. The restaurant was fully booked. It is has a old fashion steak house feel to it. I sat at the almost empty bar. The bartender, Eric, said he would take care of... More

I was there for dinner and had the Cheesesteak Soup, Sampler Platter and the New York Strip. The entire meal tickled my taste buds and was excellent.

We enjoyed a nice meal here. Wife had salmon - I had the prime rib. Both were very good. We selected this place because of the proximity to our overnight hotel stay. Place I am sure struggles based on location - but I would recommend this place to others. Hostess was very personalbe, service was good.

First time here. Different rooms. The main dining room is open and sterile (like a library ?). Bar room looked cozy. The 2 waitresses in our room were overworked. Table visits could have been more frequent. Food was served warm. Appetizers were warm. None of our steaks were hot. The plate holding the steak sauce cup was hot, but in... More

I had a grilled pork chop with rice and asparagus. The pork chop was full of flavor, tender and juicy!!! The rice was a good side that complimented the chop and the fresh asparagus was amazing. Good service and highly recommend.

My Fiancé and I came here on our date night.

Description
When you come dine with us, this is what you'll experience...

A little history, a lot of art, and above all incredible food!

Our goal at The Library is to delight you with the very best foods and the
very best service we can provide. Our specialty is fine steaks and
exceptional food that is freshly prepared by our very talented kitchen team.
We offer an extensive dinner menu including steaks, seafood, chicken,
pasta, salads, and vegetarian dishes. At lunch, a bountiful, freshly-prepared
salad, soup and pasta bar is offered along with a wide variety of sandwiches
and daily specials. All our cuisine is only complimented with our extensive wine selection.

We are located in a beautiful building, which once was the Mon Reve, an
exclusive French restaurant built by the late Lou Jenn (founder of Jenn-Air)
almost three decades ago. Fortunately, much of the building's grandeur has
been retained for us to enjoy, from Venus' Fountain and rose garden, restored
vintage crystal chandeliers, beautiful woodwork, and classical oil paintings.
Recently, we have added a large patio for our guests to enjoy the outdoors,
we have opened our beautiful "Upstairs at The Library" for banquets, private
dining, and business meetings, and we have recently opened our beautiful
new bar, complete with large screen TV's and original oil paintings of Indy's
favorites - the Colts, Indy 500, Brickyard 400, and Moto GP.

We look forward to serving you.
