The sycamore restaurant is a fine dining experiences with really nice accommodating servers. They have a great menu with choices of seafood, steaks, lamb and other categories. The menu is a little pricey but worth it. A good list of nice wines. Friendly bar.

My husband and I went here for our lunch break. We had about an hour to eat lunch which should have been plenty of time. We walked in and were promptly seated, and our waiter brought our drinks. We waited for about 25 minutes, and our waiter never showed back up. The restaurant was not even busy. It looked like... More

We are very sorry. This is in no way typical. We have discussed the situation with the server, and we are confident the issue is corrected. More

The single sided menu has sections for salads, small plates, and large plates. Not many selections but the food was excellent. Having a limited menu seems to allow the chef to do what he likes best. Prices were a little on the high side but the quality was there to support it. Good location for a date night or dinner... More

Had a 'beet salad', with 'house made gnocchi', and the 'grilled trout'. All dishes were professional prepared and delicious. Finished my meal off with the 'vanilla bean creme brûlée' and a coffee. Not to be confused with a regular restaurant, this is a top-tier delight.

This restaurant is located in an old building downtown. Nice bar and seating. The service was excellent, but the menu small and might not be to everyone's liking. Salads were good, short ribs were really meaty in a nice sauce, but the fried duck leg didn't cut it. We didn't have dessert so can't comment. The prices are high for... More

I figured that any chef who was a semi-finalist in the James Beard competition would have a good menu and I was not disappointed. Our party of 6 all enjoyed different dishes and each was amazing. I am originally from the Pacific NW - seafood country, and I can say they did the scallops to perfection. Our server was charming... More

This place doesn't have the biggest menu. You have limited options, but any option you choose will be great. The entres are pretty large, but the appetizers are small compared to the steep prices. If you don't mind spending a bit more money, eat here because the food is great. Everyone at my table was pleased with the food they... More

Quiet day - only customers in restaurant. We ordered basic sandwiches which were anything but basic. Tuna salad was made with yellowtail - good if you like a twist to your meal. Husband ordered egg salad which they changed with a pesto sauce, no celery and added bacon. Again- good but different. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Classy but quaint... More

You can't downgrade a place because it's not exactly your style, so I wouldn't do that, especially to a place that everyone seems to love. I stop by often for drinks early in the evening, and it's fabulous: Great bar, great easy chairs; out-of this world service. The food is excellent, although it's very fancy. Not all that pricey, but... More
