First impressions gave me high expectations! Beautiful "house" with a wrap-around porch and flowers everywhere--perfect atmosphere for (what I would imagine) a wedding rehearsal dinner. Its out in the middle of no-where, Missouri, which really makes this place a gem!
After being seated with the most politest and sweet people, we were greeted promptly by our server, of which she TOTALLY knew her stuff. She shared the daily specials and answered any question we had on the menu.
I ended up ordering the filet mignon with blue cheese stuffed shrimp and bacon wraps. What a mouthful! The food was brought out in a timely manner and we chowed down. EVERY bite was worth the $32 dollar plate. The steak melted in your mouth and the flavors all complimented each other. We thought the same for all 4 dishes! I gave my compliments to the chef as well.

I read a lot of reviews ahead of time, and the majority of them said to try the "chocolate gooey butter cake"

Sybill's web page states that reservations are appreciated, and even though we did, it seemed there is plenty of room for walk-ins. Because of the reservations, they did kindly greet us by name. it adds a flare for the place on top of everything else.
I also highly suggest not to bring young children. Its atmosphere is very "A-list" -ish and if you have "loud" children, you might get some dirty looks. However, I did see a few children that were very well behaved, so its not that children aren't welcome. The restaurant is also set up in "rooms" in which I'm sure they try to keep different parties separated for maximum enjoyment.
So besides the price (I'm not a fan of expensive food), everything exceeded my expectations. I defiantly give this a 5/5 stars. Even just passing through this part of Missouri, take the time to stop. Do plan ahead though, its a small exit and can easily be missed. The web site has the menu posted as well if you want to plan that much ahead! And don't forget to ask for the daily specials!
I gave this review from my own personal opinions, and by no ways did Sybill's restaurant compensate for my review.
