One of Columbia's Best

Always good. This is the one place I'd recommend for out of town couples every time. Great variety for the pickiest eaters. This is a foodie place!

The food was excellent here. We had lunch and the salads were amazing. Server was so nice, and he seemed to be the only one working, so obviously it was slow. Still, food was good quality.

Sycamore is one of our favorite restaurants. The good portion of the offerings are locally sourced and the food is always very good. The menu is seasonal, although there are a few items that remain year-round. I love both the scallops and gnocchi (a small plate, although they allow you to order a double-portion as an entree -- a good... More

Sycamore was a pleasant surprise on our travels through Columbia Missouri. Their quaint environment with all wooden tables and chairs, unique decor, and great location made for a very welcoming and comfortable environment. Their menu was unique and flavorful yet full of healthy, locally grown, and tasty treats. Two of our family members enjoyed the BLT, and it was fabulous;... More

A little pricey but the food and cocktails were excellent. I had the scallops and fried yellow tomatoes special. The tomatoes were amazing. The watermelon crawl cocktail was also outstanding - very unique, not sweet, but great.

Really nice restaurant. I have yet to have a bad meal here. I wish the menu choices were rotated or updated a bit more but hard to argue with the choices. Priced reasonably and great service make for a really nice experience.

We wanted to try BBQ at Shotgun Pete's but it was closed that evening. We walked around town and stumbled upon this restaurant. And I'm glad we did as the food and service at this place were all great. Definitely a nice place to go on a date or have a business dinner. The prices are on the high side... More

You absolutely cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. It is all amazing and delicious. Personally, I am nervous to try new or different sounding things so you definitely have to go out of your comfort zone if you are like me and be willing to branch out. Portions are small and pricey. Nice atmosphere and never a wait... More

We stopped here while traveling through town on a hot day. It is cool and very pleasant. The service was excellent and so was the food, including coffee and dessert. Highly recommend! Definitely worth the stop. It is also near a couple of nice galleries - Columbia Art League (note - closed Mondays!) and Bluestem Missouri Crafts, both on Ninth... More

Went by this place several times but finally stopped in for dinner with my family. The menu was incredible and the food was top of the line. Restaurants that have Chef's that take this amount of care and detail are very rare especially in mid-Missouri town. You won't regret stopping in. I would have given it 5 stars but the... More
