Sycamore is consistently excellent. We go there for special celebrations, this time our anniversary. Food is always imaginative and well prepared, seasonal local ingredients. Service is also superb. I usually order fish or vegetarian dishes, my husband meat; we are always very satisfied.

Is this a good restaurant with a great bar or just a generally fun place? The food is outstanding, the wine list interesting and the bartenders are brilliant. The bar feels more like a clubhouse some nights but it's a great place just to sit...More
