My fav place always wonderful food, great values on the wine list and great service!
Wonderful restaurant! Great food, service, ambiance!
Very clean and comfortable inside. Amazing food and great staff!
New Year’s Day meal, awesome food and great service!
Our experience was excellent. If I could give Service a 7 we would. The food was excellent, the ambience is warm and relaxed and the service was exceptional. Warm, really helpful, giving us great advise. The whole experience was excellent. We’ll be back and for some of their to go—cook later—options too!
I don’t think the staff could be any nicer and helpful. They were fantastic! The food was delicious and the portions were generous. I can’t wait to go back!
The safety efforts to accommodate diners for COVID are excellent. The food is spectacular. I highly recommend. There is a periodic update to the menu which keeps things fresh. Service is top notch.
First visit. Excellent service, delicious food and very Covid safe.
Excellent food! Grilled pork chop with creamy polenta and apple chutney, side of Brussels sprouts with bacon and cheddar
Sycamore is the best restaurant outside of Boston. I love this place.
Wonderful ambiance and environment. Great place for a date night or small get-together. The food was delicious and the portion size was "ok" for the price. 4 small appetizers and 1 drink = $70.
Another delicious meal out on the sidewalk deck... can't wait until we can all sit inside safely.
It was barely 40 degrees F for outside dining on a busy street. The server was cordial and prompt. The food met expectations. But there were issues out of the restaurant's control. The food was cold quickly after being served, the outdoor propane heater was not that effective so eating with gloves and hats on not that great for ambiance. We were seated at a table closest to the street so passing cars were almost within arms length. If it is going to be less than 50 degrees outside, the recommendation is that it's better to choose a different day or take your chances with indoor dining.
The dinner was amazing and the service was impeccable.
Service was impeccable, food was to die for!
+ Limited menu, but great & special (outside the box) choices. The food was excellent.
+ Very good service, delivered by the whole team.
+ We love the atmosphere, despite the limited number of tables inside.
+ Linen napkins (hygienic & reusable).
- We were sitting pretty close to an outside door and we were a bit cold and uncomfy.
- I had a small discussion with one of the hosts/waiters about sediment in a Grüner Veltliner (white Austrian wine). I still think it shouldn't be in there.
Thank you for a great night!
Very creative menu served by very friendly people.
Awesome food and fabulous service. Love seeing Dave and Lizzie ❤️
my favorite restaurant ever
A great dining experience, all the way around. The food is delicious, creative, and looks beautiful. The hostess and server were gracious and welcoming. And the bartender was friendly and attentive. This is a great neighborhood place and a sure-bet when entertaining friends and family!
We love it here! The food and service is always outstanding. Highly recommend!!
The lowly fish cake is elevated to a new level with Simon's incredible stew of chorizo, middle-eastern-influenced flavors, and whatever other magic was added. Not the old way of thinking about a fish cake, for sure -- you could actually pick out tender pieces of fish. Totally delicious. One of the best meals I've had in a long time, and the dining room was carefully staffed, uncrowded, and felt really safe. Oh, and a yummy salad, delicious wine, and a great playlist.
The food at Sycamore is truly outstanding. Not your usual suburban dining. Really excellent. Service is also extremely accommodating and attentive. Stand-out place.
Our absolute favorite “go to” restaurant- fabulous food and service.
We ate outside and the ambiance was great with the heaters. Food and cocktails were delicious and service was extremely friendly and attentive. First timers who will definitely be back!
It is always a pleasure to go back to Sycamore -- their wonderful food, great service, and pleasant atmosphere never disappoint. The weather was perfect for the outdoor patio, and we could joyously celebrate the results of the election.
The food was great and the wait staff and manager were very nice. The 1 hour and 45 minute limit, I felt that we were being rushed, and at times made me enjoy the time less knowing there was a clock. I understand that this is out of the restaurant's control given they are trying to accommodate outdoor seating during a pandemic.
Servers were a little aggressive in asking to clear my date’s meal while she was still finishing, 2 different servers 3 times in under 10 minutes. We were the last patrons, but it was 9:45 on a Saturday night. Then after that push, sweeping and letting cold air through in the front door, asked if we wanted coffee or desert. There was no chance we would have felt comfortable remaining there another 5 minutes. I have had many exemplary experiences there, and will go back, but it was unfortunate way to end the otherwise lovely meal.
Great food and wonderful service is always the case at the Sycamore. That is why it is my favorite place to eat out.
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".
