I have been a huge fan of Sycamore since it opened. The other night we rented the entire restaurant for a private party and it could not have been more perfect. We had 30+ people and we did the dinner family style. We had the chance to revisit some favorites - blue fish pate, beignets, roasted carrots, warm gougers etc.... More

went here for our anniversary in January. They made us feel special, gave us complimentary snacks and a drink and they were very attentive. It is very crowded all the time, but the noise level is fine.

We live near Sycamore, so we have been there a few times (including New Years Eve). It's a small restaurant in a storefront row of shops, but their food is really exceptional and so is the friendly service. Decor is exposed brick walls and white tablecloths. Sycamore features 'new American' cuisine--not especially ethnic, but interesting and flavorful. They also have... More

No need to head downtown when you can stay in Newton Centre and get yourself a seat at Sycamore. Drinks are creative, appetizers great for sharing and the portions ample. Our friends have been going here a lot and they're starting to be known with the "so nice to see you again!" What's nice is that the service staff is... More

There's a reason that Sycamore is the top rated restaurant in Newton! I was lucky to get a reservation for Wednesday night, as it was packed! My meal was exceptional from start to finish. We started off with the roasted brussels spouts with cheese and bacon, the roasted cauliflower and the winter citrus salad, which all tasted delicious and were... More

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.
