After reading reviews on TA, we decided to enjoy our dinner at Water Library. The menu was full of interesting dishes. And wine list is really a heaven. The seafood was so fresh, we ordered Tuna Nicoise, Chillean Seabass,..all of them were so tasty, and the dessert was good either( we tried chocolate dessert and Apple tarte tatin). The staff is friendly and well-trained. A little pricy but i think it's worthy for good dinner. Overall, great choice, We will go back again on our next time we visit to Bangkok.

I have been to the Water Library four times, and the food never fails to amaze me each time. The ingredients are the very best available, and they are very fresh. I've had the fish every time I visited, simply because the fish is *that good*! The croissant is freshly baked, and served with very nice garlic butter. Besides the excellent taste, the presentation of the food is good, and the ambience, excellent. Bottles of water from all around the world are arranged in a circle to form a water chandelier, and the effect is very romantic. For those who appreciate wine, Water Library has a very large selection of wines from around the world. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive, and the service is impeccable. Overall, Water Library makes for a great gastronomic experience! If you are in Bangkok, a visit to the Water Library is a must.

Tucked away in a mall, is a fine dining experience in peaceful surroundings. The food and service are both hard to match, even in Michelin starred restaurants. The set lunches and dinners are a true dining experience. The creativity of the chef and warmth of staff are truly a winning combination. The ala carte menu is extensive, and the wine cellar ranks with the best in Southeast Asia.

My husband turned 35 while we were in Bangkok and we wanted to have a special dinner. Through Tripadvisor, we decided to come and enjoyed Water Library.
Food just on US42 and with wine, water and tax it came in a little under $80... worth every cent!!
If you're into good wine, then this place has a real extensive wine collection. And one more, if you are in Bangkok, this is one of the must place you should visit with your partner or family.

Tired of Thai, Thai, Thai ? ...then take a break and go to this top level Continental venue in a local mall. A bit of a strange location but you will forget about the quirky local mall that it is located in the minute you walk through the door. With great personal service ( the manager, concerned that my wife's main might get cold while she answered nature's call brought it back to the kitchen and returned with a new fresh hot serving when she sat down again!) a well balanced, innovative and thoughtful menu and a diverse well priced wine list the Water Library was a worthwhile experience as well as a memorable one....I can highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
