We ended our Florida tour in Tallahassee and wanted to conclude it with a nice meal. We picked up Cypress and can only recommend the place. Food was really nice, good wine list, and even if the service was a little shaky (four different persons took care of us, but all were very nice and friendly... read more

We went to Cypress tonight and it was quite a disappointment. We have been a few times before, but tonight the servings seemed smaller and the service was very disappointing. Our waiter rarely came back and then to top it off, one of the wait staff SCREAMED the F-bomb twice from just inside the kitchen door. When you pay this... More

Cypress is consistently our favorite restaurant in Tallahassee. From taste to originality to use of locally sourced ingredients, Cypress continues to impress. Saturday night we sat at the bar and ordered a mix of items from the dinner menu and the bar menu. Pimento cheese fritters, pork stack with cornbread and fermented slaw and scallops with black rice were all... More

Not a huge southern food fan buy really enjoyed Cypress. Very modern presentation of meals with light southern touches. Highly recommended.

Celebrated a graduation so decided to try this place. There wasn't much that impressed us here. We tried it all. Cocktails cheese wine ... My ribeye was extremely salty. My wife's chicken was pretty good. Other than that this place was just mediocre. I really wanted to like it but didn't. I wouldn't return.

Curiously my first review on Trip Advisor was removed. There was also a response from the restaurant concerning my review and that is now gone too. I think this all has to do with spending an ungodly amount, including a hefty tip for poor service, for bad food, and an apology from the proprietor with a promise to to make... More

It's a little pricey, but very nice. The crab cakes were excellent. You MUST order the pecan pie turnover with maple syrup ice cream. It's the BEST dessert we've ever had!

I had been hearing about Cypress for some time so for a special occasion we decided to try it. I will say the service was excellent and the decor tasteful, but the food was lacking flavor and imagination. There was no flavor that jumped out and made it special. When I am thinking that I could have done better, your... More

Excellent service, food and ambiance. We went Sunday afternoon and had a nice brunch. Live jazz music in the next room provided great background while still allowing us to converse easily at our table.

I have thought about going to Cypress multiple times when in town, but I always ended up somewhere else for one reason or another, traffic etc. We finally made it and it will NOT be the last time. We had a selection of their cheeses and each was fantastic. They have crab cakes on their app list but the fantastic... More
