Contemporary American | Newton, Boston Suburbs

Exceptional cusine, appetizers especially stood out. Both our fish dishes were excellent, fresh, creative, and all the ingredients worked flavorfully well together. Great wines and desserts as well. Small cozy atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Sycamore is one of our top favorites in the Boston area. More

Begin with the popovers, which are fabulous. The soup that three of us had was very good. The main courses, roast half chicken and the special halibut, were outstanding. And the dessert was terrific as well. A lovely waitress. This place is a keeper! More

Food was great. The service was equally great. We had a terrible table of complainers sitting next to us. This table was terrible but I liked the way the staff handled them. The owner introduced himself and thank us for coming which always makes you feel special. More

Nice atmosphere and good service. Stopped around 8:30 pm on a Sat night and it was lively. I started with the crab bisque which was so tasty and slightly addictive! Really good. My wife had the chicken and avocado sandwich on some great grainy bread with Brewer's famous fries. Hand cut and so good. Nothing frozen here. I had the honey chicken salad which was delicious. More

I love the eggplant just like one made by my Romanian grandmother earlier in this century. The food is prepared well and there are vegan and gf choices. This is a nice place to go for a bit of authentic creative cuisine. More

Food was excellent, but a little on the expensive side. For instance, a glass of sangria was $10 and a member of our party was charged an upcharge for changing the vegetable. Also, for the price I would have liked a few more choices on the menu, particularly ones without meat. More

Italian | Newton, Boston Suburbs

It is very hard to hear in this restaurant. Even though the place was not crowded, we had difficulty hearing each other. It is very open space, high ceilings with pipes on the ceilings with no insulation for sound. It made what would have been a pleasant evening problematic. There was a party far from us and we could hear every word in full volume. The server, service and food were great. More
