“Good food, but everything else lacked.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

Was in Sycamore for business, and typically go to TripAdvisor's #1-reviewed restaurant when eating out of town. Unfortunately, their website didn't list their prices, so I should have known, but everything averaged to be about $15/plate. They did have a handful of burgers that were $10, two dishes that were $12, and everything else was over $15. I ordered the Salmon Plank dinner - and it was excellent. Co-worker ordered the Portobello Mushroom Burger, and it came with the cheese wrapper on it. They did comp her meal - but it was still unnerving.

Service was the worst part. Each time the server came to our table, my water was empty. Half expected the manager to show up to the table to apologize about the wrapper, but nothing. Very disappointed in the service, for as much as we spent on our dinner (my dinner alone was $18). Would not go back next time in Sycamore.

“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

The bruschetta is the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is comfortable. I highly recommend the key lime pie martini and the chicken madera.

Wonderful place to go for an occasion or just a quite dinner for two. Food is always very delicious and inviting. I look for any excuse to go to Nat's.

“The Best Restaurant in Sycamore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

It's nothing special from the outside, but the food and service are great. There is very nice variety, the bar is really good, and I would recommend taking someone there for a special evening.

“Pleasant, though not above average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

The rooms are pleasant and have a sober and tasteful decor. The food show some effort to be original and is not bad but often the chefs try to combine too many elements. The service is very good; the staff and management very attentive.
