The Library Wine Bar and Bistro is literally Wallingford's old town library. Built in 1899, it was passionately and lovingly restored back to its classic, architectural beauty by the Gouveia family of Gouveia Vineyards, Wallingford, CT. Come and dive into a new chapter of an old Wallingford landmark. Savour the comforts of traditional cuisine, wine and spirits while nestled at a comfortable table near our cozy fire...and let the story begin!

Gracious hostess-Gressa-made us feel welcomed. The tables were set up so you could get up to get the food without any problem. The restaurant had delicious food, various items and plenty to eat. The prime rib was delicious and the chicken Marsala was also good. This was our first time at The Library for a holiday buffet. GREAT JOB....
The only negative is there was no Easter candy for us.

First visit here - Easter brunch. Service was outstanding, facility is beautifully restored old town library.

Food was good and plentiful. Usual fare for a brunch, with omelette station and carving station. Full bar after 11:00 AM. Would return.

Saturday night we went to The Library for dinner with another couple. The service was excellent. An example of the good service was when we ordered a bottle of wine which we later learned they were out of. Rather than come back to the table empty handed the waitress brought a similar type which was less expensive and very good. The four of us each had a different dinner and the food was delicious. We have been to the restaurant many times and it is consistently good. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The beautifully renovated building is now the pride of downotwn Wallingford. They have great food and a great atmosphere too.. You can decide to go for a fancy, celebratory meal in their exquisite dining room. The service is impeccable. While the dinners are pricey, they truly are fabulous. If you prefer to kick back instead, you can go to the bar area, meet with friends or make new ones. Their pizzas are delicious and reasonably priced too. Something for everyone. A true gem!!

Beautiful restaurant and setting (formerly a library). Exotic drink menu. Enjoyed a family style dinner of paella for four which was delicious. Price was ok. Good location in town.
