My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Cypress. Our meals were excellent; I had the boullibaise, he had the macadamia nut crusted grouper….wonderful. Dessert was terrific, we shared the flourless chocolate cake. I can't say enough about the service; our waiter was Jeremy who is extremely skilled and knowledgeable about the menu, preparations and wine pairing suggestions. The... More

For a small niche restaurant with big flavor and service, Cypress does it very well. From greeting at the door to the seating at your table, the staff do a great job of making you feel welcome and comfortable. Our food choices were the blue crab cakes for appetizer and the maple glazed redeye's for entre with a wonderful Cabernet... More

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
