SO very happy the manager was NOT working last night. She is awful and has NO idea bout customer service or keeping customer loyalty. Indeed, we used ot go at least once every 8-10 days but have not been in many months because of the Manager and how we were treated by her the last time. Anyway, since she was NOT there last night- everything was terrific!

One of my favorite places to eat! They have the best French Onion soup! Use to have an amazing Reuben but they took it off the menu unfortunately. Burgers are perfect and the nachos are out of this world. Service is top notch! Can't wait to go again !

We would like more drink specials especially around the holidays. Like maybe Cupid drinks for Valentine’s Day. We were hoping for some fancy Xmas drinks the choices would do good for you ( upcharge) and us. Can’t say enough about the staff, especially the hostess Linda. She treats us like royalty, attending to our every need. servers ( Moe) are great. Treat us like family. I wish they’re was more advertising so we never miss any of your special events. Overall a very friendly comfortable place my friends and I (17 of us ) will keep coming in for There’s nothing negative to say Thank you!

I ordered the Sycamore Salad which my friend raved about and said I must order. I asked for arugula instead of seasonal greens which I did not get. I also asked for the dressing on the side and my salad was overly doused in dressing. Very disappointing. On another note, we ordered the black belt flatbread which was delicious.

We thought our dinner experience was great. our reservation was honored immediately. The waitress was so sweet and attentive and asked us for our drink orders right away. One area of our table was dirty with some sticky residue, and the waitress quickly went to clean it. The onion soup we all ordered came out promptly and was absolutely delicious. The rest of the meal was served shortly after and was equally delicious. Food was great and so was the service for a great affordable price. We will be back.

We have been to the Sycamore Grill on a number of occasions. This is the first time we used table agent. I was a little disappointed having thought I was booking an outside table to find on arrival I booked an inside table.

The manager was very accommodating. Our food arrived on time and our waiter made sure we had everything we needed. The food is always good . We would have liked more selections on the menu. It’s still our go to place.

Even tho a limited menu we were 6 people and everyone found something to order. All good was excellent. Good size portions, nice presentation, delicious. Never been there other then Monday night burger night. Good variety for everyone. A definite return visit in the near future. Waiter was pleasant, accommodating and couldn’t have been nicer. Think his name was Bob. Not sure but he said he’s been there 30 years.

We loved every aspect. The service was friendly, the food was the best we've had in a long, long time and we were comfortably air conditioned, not rushed, and was able to really enjoy each other.
