Sycamore Ratings and Reviews
I live this cozy gem in Newton. Ever since I discovered this restaurant a few years ago, it's always my go to restaurant I recommend to family and friends. I love how they have food that is season, yet items that are always on the menu often. Their boards for two are great! My personal favorite is the duck board usually in the colder months. I tell people that my favorite dessert at a restaurant is hands down here at Sycamore...the soft pillowy beignets are the BEST. It's not fancy, but are the best way to end a meal - warm and comfy inside. Even if I'm near full from all the other food, I ALWAYS get dessert. No questions asked. My husband already knows it's a requirement every time we eat there. Although, it's not convenient to bring kids since the place is small, it's always a nice treat when we get to go and enjoy a good meal. Hands down, my favorite restaurant when people ask, and that's not an easy question for me to answer since I love food so much!
Our server was helpful but didn’t understand not to interrupt. Instead of coming to our table and waiting for a pause in the conversation, she would put her head into the conversation and start talking. We had contacted the restaurant to see if they could accommodate a vegan. The vegan dish was fantastic! The policy of an up-charge for changing French Fries for another “vegetable” is ridiculous. We asked that the speaker near us be turned off, and they graciously did it.
As usual, the duck board was outstanding.Also , as usual, one must make a reservation 2-3 weeks in advance if you want prime time seating. The restaurant is small and cosy and noisy (brick walls and wood floors, all hard surfaces, make conversation difficult.) The food is outstanding, especially the various boards which rotate throughout the year, so we put up with the small annoyances and enjoy our meal.
I'd heard rave reviews about this restaurant for quit some time. I had an occasion to gather with 3 good friends and decided on Sycamore. We all loved the food, from starters to main. Good wine as well. It was comfortable, warm and you could easily converse with ease. Can't wait to return!
Dinner was perfect. Everything we ordered from the chorizo croquettes to the warm beignets at the end was delicious. The steak frites was fantastic - beef was excellent and the frites were the best fries I've ever had. The service was attentive and consistent throughout the dinner. We were a group of 4 and everyone was pleased with their meal. We would go back in a heartbeat!
This is unequivocally the most imaginative local restaurant that I know in the greater Boston Area. People come here because they love the food, the service, the atmosphere. It never disappoints. This week's board for-two-sharing (duck) was delicious as was the chocolate and bitter orange terrine.
My husband and I found this place on Yelp based on reviews and decided to check it out for his birthday dinner. We are very happy we did as the food was delicious, cocktails were unique, and service was great. We would definitely recommend it as a great dinner spot!
Had a reservation, restaurant running late, warm, kind and informative about when we would be seated. Great waitstaff, timely service. The duck-board, duck served in (4) ways, each more inviting than the next, complex flavors and textures. The corn-chowder based sauce under scallops plate was delicious. The owner David came to talk with us, learn of our experience at our meal's end which was a perfect final touch. Strongly recommended for a special dinner.
What more can I say...Dave and crew are top notch. Food is always exciting and innovative. It doesn't get much better than deliscious. Kudos Guys and Gals. I would definitely recommend this place for an anytime meal. Special occasion or daily meal. It is one of my local go-to's and the cuisine and service is second to none with absolutely no pretense.
I was with two friends who both found their meals excellent. I had two starters. The Chanterell Mushroom soup was good. The grilled Spanish Octopus was advertised to come with a crunchy Persian Salad; it was served with beans that were a touch under cooked. Too bad because it made the octopus soggy. Giving it a 4 star because my friends really enjoyed their dinners and starters.
