It's the food and the people that make Sycamoe so special! Curbside dining has its drawbacks if you're going inside restaurants... Syc's takeaway food is delicious too
This was my second time dining at Sycamore and I don't remember loving it as much the first time. At a glance, the current menu did not look that inspired, but the food was phenomenal! I had the steak with black garlic kimchi butter and was blown away. The steak was tender, seasoned well and cooked to order. The butter was like nothing I've ever tasted. The focaccia is a meal in itself and absolutely decadent. The beignets were MUCH better than what I've had in New Orleans. Drinks were outstanding. We were a party of 4 and all very happy with our dining experience. I don't love sitting outside in a make shift patio, but this is the current reality of Covid and I think Sycamore is making the best out of a really challenging situation. I'd love to return in the near future.
Delicious food, beautiful service, laid back environment. Just a joy.
The food was amazing! the restaurant is fully recommended.
Always wonderful. Never disappoints. Every dish was delicious!
My favorite restaurant! Always fresh and creative food.
My go to restaurant. Never fails to please. The staff is the best around and really make this place hum along like a well oiled machine. Food is always innovative, perfectly seasoned and the are accommodating to changes you might like to make. People are loyal to this place for a reason - it always delivers and you can count on a great dining experience.
Scallops, sunchokes, and hen of the woods mushrooms were excellent! Broccoli with miso bagna cauda was even more excellent! So glad the Normand Burgundy is still on the menu. Wonderful service as always from Scott:)
Food was good but wouldn't go back in principle. Got a vmail the day before reminding us we needed to leave by 8:15 for our 6:30 reservation which was totally fine. At about 8:05 we got our bill and paid it. At 8:15 on the dot, my husband and I each had one sip left in our drinks, and the hostess came over to remind us we needed to leave. This seemed a bit ridiculous to us. We had just spent $250 - two apps, salad, bottle of wine, two after dinner drinks, two entrees - and she couldn't give us until 8:16 at least? We clearly weren't planning on sticking around so it seemed very unnecessary. We took our last sips and I showed the hostess the time on my phone as we walked out the door - 8:17. They need to have a better understanding of "reasonableness".
Amazing as always!
I had gone to Sycamore the week before and loved it. The following week a friend asked me to dinner and I suggested Sycamore. It was as fabulous as the last time! What I didn’t know was that they change their menu often. Yet, I wasn’t the least bit disappointed because this menu was terrific too. And once again the service was exceptional, in fact my server from the week before, Josh welcomed me back when I arrived at the restaurant which was a treat. This restaurant is so fantastic that I’d go back weekly!
We had a really terrific meal! We’ll definitely be going back soon.
Great service and food!
It was a delicious meal. I would be glad to go back anytime.
Great food and outstanding service as always. Menu is still a little limited due to COVID, but what comes out of the kitchen regains great. I do look forward to the return of 'the board' though!
We had outstanding service, delicious food, comfortable warm surroundings and an incredible dining experience because we felt so safe with all the safety precautions that your staff took. We can’t wait to go back again soon!
Every course was delicious. They never disappoint.
Fabulous as always!
Dining at Sycamore is such a special experience! The team there goes out of their way to be sure their guests enjoy their night out. If it weren't for their diligent safety protocols, you could almost imagine yourself dining in a pre-covid time.
It's been awhile since we ate at Sycamore -- how we missed it! While the restaurant has been rearranged to meet current requirements, the food and service haven't changed at all. The menu continues to be innovative and delicious. The service is friendly and properly attentive. Thanks for another special meal!
It wasn't worth the money and the current menu was disappointing. I got the steak dish. Very average. Nothing special. My date got the cod dish. Again - very expensive for a small portion and very average. Our app was the squash salad. Interesting and different but dry. The cheese and crunchy farrow was good but there was almost zero dressing and a tiny portion. There was one very good item and that was the dessert - a s'more pudding. This was great, albeit very small and about $10. The wait staff is a bit too eclectic for us. I sensed a bit of a "tude when asked to describe menu items with unknown ingredients. Not sure if we will be back as my BF was turned off by that.
Top shelf food, service, drinks. Sycamore does it right, never disappoints
Sycamore always delights!
Delicious food, fabulous cocktails, and warm, professional service. We sat outside which was a lot of fun and felt very safe. Highly recommend!
Excellent as always, felt very safe dining here inside and out.
Absolutely amazing place with fantastic food. Always consistent.
First time for my wife and me. What a discovery. This was pretty much the perfect dine-out. Limited drink and food menu, but oh so good (shoot for top quality instead of quantity). Every little detail was taken care of. Excellent service. We could feel the passion and the commitment. Top.
Every time we come here the food and wine are not just great, but exceptional! Go as soon as you can and keep going whenever you can. They change the menu regularly and it is always amazing. Fantastic, unique flavors that will blow you away. Great staff, great vibe. Go, and then go again.
We had a really great time! Thank you for making our anniversary so rad. We’ll be back soon.
A great overall restaurant. Moving to metro west from NYC, it's tough to find restaurants like this in Boston, let alone west of the city.
One area for improvement on the front desk is a bit more of a barrier as it is right on the road. Even a few ferns / palms / vines along the perimeter that go above the concrete barriers would help a lot.
We sat outside, of course. Fabulous waiter with a great sense of humor. Halibut dinner and tomato appetizer were fabulous. Weather was just perfect this past Wednesday.
Friendly staff. Outside dining available which we took advantage of! Had the heirloom salad and chicken sausage entree. Both were great. As usual a great experience here.
Vegetarian entree, appetizer and dessert were excellent. Steak was terrible. Wonderful outdoor space with good social distancing. But a cold night to not yet have the heat lamps up and running.
Chef Dave just continues to serve fantastic meals. He and his gang are a pleasure to be around.
Best Resturant in Newton! Great staff, service, food, cocktails, and ambiance. Highly recommend!!
Sycamore never ceases to amaze us. It is the very best food. We love the smoked bluefish snack, and the vegetarian dishes are outstanding. Service was warm, helpful, and prompt. We really enjoyed eating outdoors on The wooden patio. Drinks are fabulous, Scott is the best bartender for miles around. Lovely way to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely be back.
Amongst other amazing flavors this night, the melon salad is out of this world. Even after dining here every twice a month for over a year, I can't understand how they can combine such unique flavors into amazing dishes like this.
The waiter was a very friendly and hard-working. Although, there was a supporting staff member who checked in on our table and even took food questions who came off as a little pretentious due to our group not being familiar with some menu items. Aside from that, it was a fun experience and the patio area was nicely organized.
Absolutely amazing every single time. Extremely consistent and fantastic. Great bar, great food, excellent service.
The food is beyond excellent! Friendly vibe, great teamwork among the staff, we will definitely be back!
Sycamore does such a great job pairing foods and spices. I’m consistently impressed with their success with both flavor and texture. Big fan. The people working there and helping you are also fantastic.
