We love Sycamore Inn. Great food, can't find another steak quite like it and the creamed spinach is the best, again can't find the same taste anywhere else. The service is absolutely the best. We always ask for Bobby. That man has Class. It is a great intimate dinner, quiet enough to talk through dinner and we don't have to yell. Great wine list, never disappoints.

The Sycamore Inn is more than just a Roadhouse on Route 66, but an icon of one of Cucamonga's great resturants of the past. Yes, while still a special spot, it's great days seem far behind it. The minestrone soup was once a meal unto itself with a feeling of an origin from the old world. Now it is some undercook vegetables with a little pasta. My memories of dining go back over 60 years when food and family came together ... times of the past.

Great ambiance. My wife and I really enjoy the history of this beautiful place. Didn’t have the minestrone this visit, but it is delicious. Did have a Martini. Strong, but tasty. Got a buzz on. The service is great. Best advice is to slow down from your daily routine and enjoy!

As usual, the Sycamore Inn does NOT disappoint...had a lovely dinner, paired with a lovely, notable wine. The owner even stopped by our table to see how we were enjoying the evening, and we had a nice chat. If you're not sure where to go for a special occasion, look no further. The Sycamore Inn is a lovely, historical, culinary delight, with a rather impressive wine list, too.

Ordered a filet medium rare and it came out rare. The grill marks were very prominent and gave it a burnt taste. The steak overall had no flavor other than that. The au gratin potatoes were hard and under cooked. The cream corn had good flavor but the corn kernels were hard. The cheesecake was delicious. Dinner chicken plate wasn't available and the drinks were over priced. Sub par for a restaurant that has been in business for so long

One of the oldest restaurants in California. Not only a great selection of steaks, seafood wines and other dishes, but lots of others worth trying. The wait staff attentive and Ed the waiter is a must have. Ed will tell you what is best to order and does not upsell.

While the food was fantastic, 1 detail really put a downer on what was supposed to be a special dinner out with my husband. The tables are SOOOO close together that I could hold hands with the person at the table next to us. We paid a lot for a great meal, hoping for intimate, relaxing, conversation, only to not be able to speak comfortably once the tables next to us were sat. Very awkward.

The food and drink were great. Service, less so. Our waiter, when I ordered the rack of lamb, appropriately asked me my choice for side dish and I chose sautéed spinach. My wife made a choice of first, 8 oz and then changed to 10 oz filet. He did not ask her her choice of sides until I reminded him of it. When the meal was done, and the bill brought, we found that he in fact had served an 8 oz steak. Another thing, the food took an inordinate amount of time to arrive after being ordered. My wife felt like she was ignored by our waiter. She will not come back.

As always, Sycamore Inn was an outstanding dining experience. It was my wife's birthday so I surprised her with the reservations I made through Open Table. The only special request I made was for special birthday wishes for my wife. To my wife's surprise, the server Bob brought out a slice of bread pudding for dessert on the house.

It took close to a half hour before my wife and I received our appetizers and over 45 minutes to receive our entrees. My wife and I both ordered steaks and the steaks came out over cooked and dry and our side dishes were cold. We gave our waiter this feedback and he had the chef cook two new steaks. While the second steaks were not dry, they were bland with no flavor. For the inconvenience, the waiter only charged us for our glasses of wine, which we appreciated. But we were truly disappointed in the quality of food.

We were visiting the area during Valentines Day & saw this place had great reviews. I looked them up on the website & it looked like a perfect place for a date. They totally lived up to our expectations. The place was a great historical find. The hospitality was excellent as well as the food. We will definitely recommend Sycamore Inn to friends & family that are from the area as well as those planning to visit. Thanks for a great romantic dining experience.

We had Valentines dinner at this place. Our waitress was friendly and nice. We ordered New York strip, Filet mignon , veggie soup and Ice cream on pastries for dessert. Two out of three steak orders were under cooked. The qualities of meat were just ok. We asked steak sauce but waited for long time to get them. The seatings are old style with little privacy. The desert pastry was cold and little old, not fresh and fluffy. We love the soup, it was very balanced with perfect veggie blend. Our bill was around $250 (including tips). Not impressed .

Everything was wonderful, except for the ambiance. The tables are too close together, and one of the servers (not ours) kept hitting the back of my chair, even after I had mentioned it to him. Please don't overcrowd the dining area with tables, as this makes for a very uncomfortable experience.
