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'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

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.
