Dad had the Quail that was very good, daughter had the Shrimp and grits that was okay and, I had the Corn meal Oysters and prosciutto wrapped melon that was light and full of... More

Our family of seven adults enjoyed a perfectly paced dinner on a Friday night. Our server was knowledgeable about the wine list and kept us from ordering a Pinot noir that is not what we expected. I enjoyed the best buttermilk fried chicken breast in my life. Very moist , partially boned , and crunchy crust.

Quaint, very nice restaurant. Excellent service. Dessert was amazing! I had a small plate because I was not very hungry, but it was very good. The larger plates I saw at neighboring tables looked great.

If you are in Tallahassee make sure you experience the best chef owned restaurant in town. The food and service are always top notch. Never a disappointment.

Cypress has a great reputation for quality food and service. Valet parking helps with thier small lot. One feels that one is special in this small restaurant. I have been there several times and never been disappointed.

We loved our food, which is by far the most important thing. I wasn't thrilled about staring at the ladies' room door throughout my dinner, some plants could easily soften the "view" but it seems that the place doesn't focus too much on decor.

One of the top two restaurants in Tallahassee. The paper menu doesn't seem to change that much but the specials do so wait to hear about the daily specials. The wine list is not that large but good enough. Reservations are recommended given the relatively small number of tables. The only convenient parking is by valet.

It's pricey by Tallahassee standards, but worth it for a special occasion. The menu is interesting, and the food and service are outstanding. Highly recommended.

This was my first visit to Cypress, but definitely not my last. The service and the food was outstanding. Danielle was our waitress and she was terrific. Well spoken and explained the menu in detail. The oysters and biscuits on "small plates" is a must try. We had a special, of lobster tail on pasta....from presentation to taste it tempted... More

First, I always support local and Chef David and his wife Elizabeth have made this restaurant a treasure. I always get the mushroom with truffle oil soup..love truffle oil. Seafood is local, along with his veggies and cheeses. Love their shrimp and grits. All fish dishes are perfectly cooked. They can prepare gluten free. Wonderful wine selection. If you want... More
