Service was wonderful and food was good. Not for a very plain eaterbut really interesting food. Atmosphere was like a little European bistro.

The food is just amazing! I had an amazing grilled fluke with a warm cucumber salad and a chicory salad to start. The flavors, while unique, come together well. My only complaint was a very cranky waiter who essentially ignored us. Luckily the food is good enough that we just ignored him too.

Great food. Intimate setting. High priced for Newton. Parking can be somewhat challenging at times but worth it.

The Sycamore is a must try restaurant. I usually reserve it for special occasions. The menu is seasonal and there are always some delicious and creative options to choose from. Sitting at the bar is also fun because the bartenders are knowledgeable, good with recommendations and very friendly. Gets a little busy around the weekends, so make reservations or try... More

5 star meal! Enjoying the chef's Trattoria Di Marotta Monday menu. From Rabbit to Branzino to sirloin steak to Château Le Puy Emilien rouge -- perfection. Go early as it can get crowded and the noise factor may detract from your experience.

Interesting, creative, well-executed menu, generous cocktails, friendly and attentive service, all in a warm, attractive, smaller suburban space. Book well ahead, they fill up quickly!

Sycamore on the whole was a really good and fun dining experience. The staff and our friends' enthusiasm transcended any of my doubts or lack of excitement over the food or restaurant itself. I'm not sure if I would be so positive about Sycamore if I had not been briefed about the personalities and treated so well by all. Our... More

I reviewed Sycamore in 2013 and gave it four stars. At the time, it had spectacular drinks and good food, and was quite expensive for the food quality. We've gone back with escalating frequency as the prices and superb drink quality have remained steady, and the food has gotten better and better. I should have corrected my review to five... More

Haven't been there in a couple of years but they opened another spot in Newton Centre that I like for lunch so I thought I would revisit. My not having dinner there was my loss. Food is excellent as is the service. Highly recommended!
