Four and a half stars!

We went to dinner on a Monday night because I needed a steak. My guest had a stuffed flounder special. We were both very impressed with the meal. The restaurant is in a house, so it is cozy, especially depending what room you are in. We could quibble about a few little details, but the food was... read more

Everything started great - immediate service, good Crab Cake appetizer and salads. We were both excited to see Sockeye Salmon on the menu, and both ordered it. The problem was, it was NOT Sockeye.

We drove 65 miles to the Library last night for my wife's birthday. We had never been there and were very skeptical. The food served was excellent. I had the shrimp and my wife had the prime ribeye. The prices may not be for everyone, but the food itself should have placed it way up on the rankings for the... More

Excellent food, properly cooked, fresh ingredients and appropriate wines. Service is always prompt and just enough, not intrusive but not ignored.

If there is one place in Sherman that will make you think you are in a sophisticated restaurant in a LARGE city, this is the place. The steaks and service were as close to 5 star as you can find in North Texas. This place would be a success anywhere the chef decides to cook.

above average food and presentation rivaling some high end restaurants in Dallas area. Waitress was very social. Atmosphere was quite. Should have asked for a window table. Beer menu was limited (I prefer craft) but wine selection was good.

One of the top quality restaurants in the area that distinguishes itself with an intimate dining experience. Customers are casual or business or on a romantic date and it is comfortable for everyone. The wait staff are excellent.
