Sycamore is literally steps away from the Septa R3.
There is street parking & there is a public lot across the street. Pull onto Madison Avenue. It's on the left.

We have driven past this place
many times and decided to stop in to celebrate my husband's promotion. It was perfect! Loved everything about it especially the ambiance. The food was impressive and the $35 prix fixe menu was wonderful!"

A bit out of the way, and I am not
very familiar with the area. But the food was second to none, we were very impressed!"

Sycamore has wonderful food in a
sort of "rustic" atmosphere. We love how you can bring liquor, and they have mixers and will make great cocktails! They have a lot of variety and the menu changes frequently."

We've been to Sycamore several
times - and while it's good I don;t think it matches up to the very best places in the region as the ratings would suggest. In short, very good but standard fare."

I am still waiting for an
explanation of why the restaurant was closed, dark, locked, when we arrived for our appointed reservation. No one has responded to us with apology or explanation. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, so this was doubly disappointing. I have written you about this, and you responded that you were checking into it, but we still have heard no explanation. Now I am getting angry..... What happened??"

Food is great, and choice and
level of background music is a major plus."

The (sort-of) new owner and chef
are doing a great job. Menu changes a little week to week, which keeps it interesting, and the ambiance is still wonderful, especially with the second room open again. If you haven't been in awhile its definitely worth a trip."

From the moment we stepped into
the restaurant, we noticed the friendly, casual atmosphere. Sycamore is a BYOB establishment, but they also provide fun "mixer concoctions' that work well with your favorite spirits. The menu is limited, but the dishes are creative and delicious, from the salad to the dessert. The scallops, on a bed of totally delectable corn-based veggie mix, melted in your mouth, with subtle seasonings and wonderful flavor. The tables are close; everyone is friendly. The service was great. A great place for a special date, a reunion of good friends, or, as we were, first time patrons looking for a new spot. The noise level was the problem. The restaurant acoustics couldn't handle the noise of a large party beside us."

I highly recommend a prefix dinner
with friends to give you a chance to sample the menu. It's a great deal, with many courses of moderate portions. It's chef's choice, which is the only gamble because you can only cross your fingers and hope to get the Barneget Sea Scallops (which I am convinced is the best main course on the menu right now). The last time I dined we weren't as lucky. While the appetizers were great (crab cakes and a butternut squash soup) I was glad I had my memories to go on for the main. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken Breast was bland, as were the potatoes and gravy. The Boneless Beef Short Ribs were cooked perfectly but the vegetable side was too salty. Next time, Crab cakes, Scallops, and flourless chocolate cake = happy"

This is a nice restaurant to go
for a BYOB dinner with a seasonal menu. The seating can be a bit tight and there's nothing overly special about the décor, but we had a good meal and enjoyed the cheese plate. It is not cheap but you get good food for the money - my husband really enjoyed the scallops."

New ownership . Food isn't nearly
as good. $39 for a veal chop that was tough and chewy. Not sure I'll go back again and used to go here 4 times a year."
Dined on 11/3/2013
One of my favorite restaurants in
the area. Food, service..... I am never disappointed when I go there. I only wish I could eat there a few times a week !!"
Dined on 11/2/2013
A great little neighborhood spot.
This was our second visit in two months and this visit was every bit as outstanding as the first. From the Butternut Squash Soup to the flowerless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and salted Carmel sauce to the steak and salmon in between... A wonderful dining experience. Treat yourself!"

We received a gift certificate
months ago and used it for our anniversary last Saturday night. We regret waiting so long! The menu offerings were unusual, and everything we chose was extremely flavorful. No complaints at all, just compliments. This will be one of our favorite restaurants."

We love it here and recommend it
to all of our friends and family..."

This is one of the best
restaurants in Delaware Co. It's pricey but worth every penny. Also wonderful service. Best boneless shortribs ever.. Good seasonal fare."
Dined on 10/27/2013
Best dining experience I can
remember. Excellent food at a reasonable price, this place is not to be missed!"
Dined on 10/5/2013
My husband & I celebrated my
birthday at Sycamore last year. We returned again this year & found it to be even better than our first visit ! Every course was superb. The prix fix is the best deal going. Our waiter was great. We will be back without waiting for another birthday."

Tucked into the tiny center of
Lansdowne, this storefront BYO delivers big city goods. The menu is constantly moving to stay in tune with the seasons, and the chef and owner bring their A-game to every selection.wait staff is pleasant, the ambience intimate and warm. A perfect spot for impressing your boss, your date or your in-laws! Rather than being forced to choose just one, we went for the Sunday $35 prix-fixe chef tasting. Yummm! A cut above casual, so wear at least your best jeans or better."
Dined on 10/14/2013
Waiter was great as always. Food
selection great but just didn't feel it was up to par compared to our earliest Sycamore experiences. Our first dining evenings with 1 st chef were surprising and great. The food was fine but wouldn't bring me back."
Dined on 10/13/2013
We loved our recent trip to
Sycamore! The new owner is involved and enthusiastic, and the new chef is very creative and each dish was prepared perfectly. This place just keeps getting better! The Chef's Casual Prix Fixe was five very delicious, beautifully presented courses, and a huge value if you can make it for that Wednesday and Sunday night special."
Dined on 10/10/2013
My son had a competition near this
place. I searched with open table and found this place. We loved it!"
Dined on 7/19/2013
The atmosphere and the food are
great, however I felt the portion size was lacking for how expensive the entrees were. If cost is not an issue for you and you don't mind paying a little more, then you'll still get some great food with nice favors and a great atmosphere and its BYOB."
Dined on 10/6/2013
We enjoyed our visit to Sycamore.
The staff was friendly and very attentive. We tried several of the small plate offerings. The fusilli and sausage was delicious as well as the crab cakes. The cheese tray was beautiful and included some great accompaniments such as fig ja and drunken raisins. The creme brulee was to die for! We loved the cocktail mixers that were served in shakers. We just added our own vodka and had delicious drinks."

my dinner group had a fantastic
meal at Sycamore the other night. Surprisingly good food and great service. The chef even came out of the kitchen and sat with us for a while. I haven't had food this good in this area ever! I would recommend it highly."
Dined on 9/23/2013
As Lansdowne residents we are
proud that Sycamore is in our town. Whenever we have friends visiting from out of the area, especially when it is their first time in town we go to Sycamore. As soon as you walk in the atmosphere relaxes you. the staff is always relaxed but professional - this week the young lady waiting on us certainly added to the enjoinment of the evening. The menu always have interesting twist and more than pleasant surprises. An example is the Chef Salad - I ordered it because I just felt like a salad before the meal and didn't expect anything special - it was a combination of warmed wilted greens with cool greens a light addition of crisp bacon and very tasty dressing - I hope it stays on the menu."
Dined on 9/28/2013
Always satisfied at Sycamore! Food
is great and so is presentation. This visit had the cheese tray. Pear with mustard and wine...just superb! I had the ribeye steak with a fantastic glaze. My daughter had the scallops and every bite was yummy. So nice to have a place like Sycamore in the neighborhood to take unexpected guests to..... and you know it will be a great dining experience for them."
Dined on 9/12/2013
Excellent meals every time we eat
here. Cheese tray was fantastic. By now my wife and I have tried almost everything on the menu and there has not been a "miss" yet. BYOB and the food deserves your good bottles. Can't wait to get back there soon!"

After a hohum experience a numbers
of months ago, we returned to Sycamore for our beloved Sunday tasting meal. Great news--the service, interesting cuisine, and good natured ambience are back to levels that we had experienced for a number of years."

I love the feel of the place, food
was amazing and cooked perfectly, service was excellent, loved every minute of my experience"
Dined on 8/30/2013
We've eaten at Sycamore a
half-dozen times in the last two years and continue to be impressed. A couple of Sundays ago, we had the Sunday p-f menu (35 dollars a person) and enjoyed a pretty amazing five-course meal. Highlights included a pasta with sausage, sun dried tomatoes, spinach and parmesan cream sauce; crab cake with coconut and mango; salmon (cooked perfectly), cheese plate; and warm toffee pudding (stunningly good). Hard to imagine a better combo of excellent food + reasonable price than Sycamore's p-f menu."
Dined on 8/12/2013
We had not been to Sycamore since
the new chef started and it is still just as fabulous as ever. We had the prix fixe dinner on a Sunday night and enjoyed an array of gourmet delights including wild mushrooms on brioche, crabcake, spiced carrot bisque, fried chicken, a cheese course, bread pudding and a lemon square. Malisha, the new chef, is maintaining the high standards of this favorite byob, while making her own imprint. We loved our meal and will be back soon."

I have been to Stcamore several
times and each time is better then the last. You can tell The chef puts so much love into each plate. The food is fresh and the serving amount is just right. I would highly recommend the farmer's plate which includes cheese, meat, a d special garnishings. Plus, its s BYO which i love. I would highly recommend Sycamore to anyone, especially those who appreciate great food and lovely ambiance."

Had a great experience at
Sycamore. Food was very good."

There were six in our party, from
teenagers to grandparents, celebrating a 50th birthday. The food was local, fresh and beautifully prepared. Highly recommended!"
Dined on 8/11/2013
This restaurant has changed quite
a bit since changing chefs. The ambience and decor remain the same, but the food is simpler and unpretentious, yet very flavorful. The cuisine used to be more European influenced, but it is now "fine American bistro", as stated on the website. We did the Sunday prix fixe with 9 courses to share between the two of us. It was all delightful. Started with 2 different salads, then honey nut squash soup and a New Orleans po' boy, After that, skate, which is not my favorite fish, but this was done very well, and beef stir fry. While the stir fry was very flavorful, I was hoping for something a little less pedestrian. The Cheese plate was eclectic in variety, and the bread pudding for dessert was exceptional."
Dined on 8/5/2013
We love this low-key BYOB in our
own lovely Lansdowne. The new chef is great and accommodates any dietary wishes. We will be coming back here regularly to have a cozy delicious evening out."
Dined on 8/4/2013
I can't believe this cute little
spot is 10 minutes from my front door. The chef's tasting menu of new orleans inspired food had me feeling like i was in the French Quarter and by the 4th course i had to get my po' boy wrapped to go so i could enjoy the bread pudding that followed. Can't wait to make this our special occasion spot as well as our "treat your self" spot!"
Dined on 8/3/2013
We love it! The food was terrific.
The only thing that I would adjust is the table arrangement. The small tables on the right are really close together and it is difficult not to listen to other conversations. Also, no cork fee! This will be our new place, it beats beading into the city!"
Dined on 8/4/2013
This is my first trip back to
Sycamore in a while, since a new chef has taken over the kitchen. It is still very good and well worth it. We shared a dozen raw oysters, a bit unusual to find in these parts which were very fresh and served nice and cold. The rest of the dinner, including a rotelle pasta dish and an excellent steak were great. The bread pudding dessert, which I've had here before is still the best. Glad I finally made it back."
