Great Food & Service

Took my wife to Cypress for her 40th birthday. The food was wonderful and so was the service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to enjoy southern, creative food.

While the service and ambiance were fine, the hanger steak dish was not. Both the meat and potato accompaniment were too heavily salted. I felt like Lot's wife afterward.

Here we are! Read everyone's review while we were doing Happy Hour and weren't sure what to expect. We were excited to get Jeremy as our waiter since everyone raved about him. Just polished off the Eggplant Bruschetta; get 2 you won't want to share. I ordered the special Quail. Unreal! Very gourmet southern flavors. Complemented with the wine we... More

I've long been a fan of Cypress but this was my first Sunday brunch experience. The menu offered a number of choices of both a breakfast and lunch variety, including starters, soups and salads. Great service and a wonderful menu! Cypress did not disappoint!

The Cypress Restaurant looks like my kinda place: a bit rustic, a few "chef-taking-chances" items on the menu, and a small somewhat intimate atmosphere. In town for business I had not reserved a table, but the confused desk staff worked to accommodate me anyway. Ten minutes after being seated and it was finally determined who would actually wait on me,... More

I met some friends here for a pre-theatre drink and a bite to eat. As we were not staying for dinner we made a reservation to be seated at the bar. On arrival there were our places all set up exactly as a table would have been set up, which was very welcoming. We were given the drinks menu which... More

You need to get to this restaurant early if you want a seat. Our party had to eat in the bar but the food was very nice and the service good. It is within walking distance from downtown hotels.

Sorry, but I do not share the same enthusiasm about Cypress as other reviewers! During as recent Tallahassee stay, we were looking forward to eating at Cypress based on recommendations of others, but, overall, we were disappointed. The restaurant has a parking lot and valet which makes it easy. The restaurant itself is nice, and the service was fine. There... More
