I went for dinner last night and the menu has seriously changed. Gone are the escargot and other menu items that used to make it a French restaurant. So now, based that it is not a French restaurant, the food that is really being served you can get anywhere. My food was good yes but I went specifically for the... More

A first visit to Cypress last fall was enough to make us want to return... The decor is nice and upscale for the most part, with some quirky murals painted along the walls. The overall noise is a bit loud, however, especially when the piano player is on deck. His music that particular night was good, but a little cheesy... More

We've been here twice and enjoy the food and the service. The portions are generous. The table side service, Caesar salad made table side, entrees finished table side, and desserts prepared table side, make the experience special.

The interior is attractive and trendy. The menu had so many appealing choices I was hard pressed to pick one. The lunch service ran long but was attentive. The food was great.

Go here for the piano bar -- after meetings, work etc where the goal is drinking and a little noshing. The piano player/singer was rescued from the demise of Bing Crosby's and he's a gem. The dining, however, leaves much to be desired - our fish and game dishes were undercooked and overcooked, respectively. Our poor server did the best... More

My pet peeve is when a great restaurant is stingy and short pours when ordering by the glass. Beware, get the bottle or you will pay $10 a $14 for three sips of wine. Food is amazing, staff is wonderful, but they diminish my rating due to the greed on the wine. I mean , come on Cypress! I have... More

We attended our office Christmas party here in December and the food was very good as was the service by a wonderful woman from Chile. The escargot was quite tasty as were the salads. Don't forget to look in the back room for an interesting picture of Paris featuring the Eiffel Tower. I can't wait to go again. The parking... More

The first time I dined at Cypress I could not rave enough about the place. Outstanding food - outstanding service and so impressed I shared with all my friends. Last time I was there, I took a good friend to celebrate her birthday, and what a let down! The salad was poorly done, the entree I had ordered before, but... More
