Had a work dinner meeting here and the place was really good. We had great service and the food was excellent. Unique menu with lots of different choices. The squash soup (which was a special) was amazing! It was nice atmosphere too. Most of the folks at the table said - this place is one of the best in Tallahassee.... More

Three of us went early this evening and enjoyed a light satisfying dinner whilst sticking to items on the well thought out happy hour menu. We shared a pimento cheese and toasted French bread. Yum! My friends each had hamburgers and enjoyed every bite. I ordered the grouper tacos. Served with guacamole, roasted pepper salsa and generous portions of Floridians'... More

Went Saturday night for the first time in three years. Great atmosphere and service..a little on the curt side though. We split a bottle of Riesling which almost seemed non-alcoholic after completion. Started with the house salad which was very good. Passed on the $3 bread basket. I had shrimp and grits and was a little underwhelmed with the portion... More

My wife and I chose the wine pairing dinner and were delighted with superb wines and great food. In addition to the regular menu in summer Cypress offers a wine pairing gourmet dinner every other Thursday and we highly recommend it. The sound level can be very energetic when the place is full as it was when we were there.... More

I've heard many good things about Cypress and so we decided to give it a shot today. Because of the hype I thought I would see nice, elegant decor inside but it was relatively simple-- but then that's alright. We were immediately seated for brunch and drinks were taken promptly. Then things just started to dwindle down... 1. The server... More

I've heard nothing but good things about Cypress during my time in Tallahassee. And yes, the food here is pretty good. It's not amazing. But it's good. That being said, the prices here are on par for "amazing food" (which Cypress doesn't have). Dinner for two (no drinks other than water) came to $84 with tip (two entrees, bread, and... More

We took a day trip over to visit our daughter who studies at FSU. Started off with the signature Bloody Mary and Pimento fritters... very tasty. 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.
