Sycamore is a wonderful high end restaurant in newton center a stone throw away from my office. I can literally roll down the hill and land on the doorstep. It gets really crowded early in the evening so if you can make reservations you should. Me and my hubby sat at the bar and got the lamb every way for 2 and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. There was such variety in the lamb dish because it was prepared 4 or 5 different ways which made it fun to eat not boring. They have little appetizers you can snack on to take the hunger away as well as regular appetizers also delicious. The service for a very busy bar was impeccable, attentive, and friendly. We were able to have a nice dinner at about 6 and get out of there in time for me to get back to work refreshed and satisfied.

Had a very nice meal in Newton Center on a weeknight. The staff was welcoming and attentive although the dining room and bar area were busy. The cocktails' name list is very unique and the mix of ingredient interesting. We had a nice cava to start followed by a Chablis that was crisp and dry. Enjoyed the strawberry and snap pea salad, the fluke ceviche, the scallops and the beignets. The chefs are to be commended for their expert mix of fresh ingredients with spices and different textures. Wish they would offer espresso coffee to finish the meal in style.

Love this place. Great atmosphere, wonderful food, helpful staff.

Some dishes sound like there is too much going on, but we have loved everything we've ever tried.

We'll be back.

Everything on the limited menu is creative, delicious and prepared with care. The bartender is a genius at cocktails and the apps are so interesting that one may be tempted to make a meal of them.

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. and then made a few new favorites, one of which was the salmon with gribiche sauce and another was the rabbit meatballs with gnocchi. There were shrimp skewers with a green sirracha that totally rocked. Anyway, a good time was had by all - the food and the service were amazing. Just another reason that I love this place.
