Great brunch

The food is very good and i highly recommend the signature bloody mary. The live music was not to loud and was a great addition to the company

It is is never easy, and certainly not a pleasure, to be critical of a restaurant that is clearly trying, and trying hard, to do a first-class job of creating a memorable dining experience. First the positive: The service was superb in every way, and the menu is inventive and original. But I was not impressed with the actual food... More

We went for a group dinner to this restaurant while on a business trip in Tallahassee Florida and was blown away from the service and quality of food! It was a great meal and I highly recommended it for a group dinner or date night.

This restaurant shows a lot of promise. Interesting food pairings. The cocktails were quite good. Salads were over dressed. Steak was good but not as good as I would have liked. Perhaps I was here when the executive chef was not but I hoped for better based on a great looking menu.

Met our two young adult sons in Tallahassee to celebrate their birthday. Chose this restaurant because we hadn't been there before. Reservation at 8:00, seated at 8:30. I find that irritating for the price point of this restaurant. The food was good, not great. The service was fair, not great. Waited to order drinks, wine came well after entrees. Won't... More

Three of us dined here and we were quite pleased with our meals. The service was attentive, cocktails were good and the food well prepared. The cobia and lamb were especially tasty. Even though we were full, we split the pecan pie turnover and it was scrumptious! I always enjoy a visit to Cypress when I'm in Tallahassee.

We were staying down the street and needed a good meal. It turns out that this place fit the bill perfectly. Nice menu and everything was perfectly prepared. Decent prices and a pretty solid wine list.

Great appetizers, specialty drinks, excellent meal. Maple mopped ribeye will not disappoint. Could not have asked for a better night.

Tallahassee, like most state capitals, is flooded with lobbyists of either grassroots citizen or professional level. When we go, we need a place to have a nice dinner and unwind. Cypress was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. A common problem in college towns is you get kids as servers and they are lacking in the attributes you expect... More
