Sycamore's has become a Columbia institution. Consistently good food and one of the best (and most popular) bars in town. Menu changes seasonally and features a good number of locally sourced options. Fine wine list and exceptional beer list. One of the more cosmopolitan atmospheres in CoMo. Tables in front provide nice venue for people watching on Broadway.

Sycamore serves some of the best food in Columbia, and at prices that are a bit more affordable than its high level competitors. I had no complaints about the lighting the night I went, and the service was excellent. The wine we chose was presentable and inexpensive, and fine upgrades were available. The food is interesting and well prepared; there... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, but I'll admit, there's very low lighting and it's difficult to see the menu. However, our meal was delicious! We started out with the smoked trout bellies, which was very good. We wanted to try something different and we were pleasantly surprised. Then, my husband... More

Atmosphere is good. Very unique menu options. The Cassoulet was excellent. It includes duck leg, pork belly and a house sausage to die for. But they fell very short on the Scallop dinner. The scallops were under cooked and the whole meal was completely cold! As if it was prepared early in the day and refrigerated to be served later.... More

Columbia seems to have really benefited from a wide selection of good restaurants over the years. Had an excellent filet and they also had a nice selection of craft beers. The offering seems to vary ever couple of days and they search out local produce and meats. The bread pudding would give about a 7 it was tasty but a... More

Wonderfully varied menu with a great wine list. Located in the heart of down town Columbia, MO, it is convenient, fairly quiet and the menu is unique and prepared perfectly. Highly recommend the duck and walleye!

Maybe the Night Was Too Busy? The bar tender was great. The atmosphere was hoppin'. The food - not so much. Trout w/ risotto cold - maybe they weren't running in the Missouri streams? Pork belly sliders sounded good on the small plate menu, but the salt was over-powering. Spare ribs were good. Nothing like dorm food! Wine list must... More

We had dinner at this restaurant down the street from the hotel. Despite being a crowded Friday night we had only a short wait and good service. The food was good and good sized portions. I will definitely go back again on my next visit to Columbia, MO.
