I saved the best for last -- Fruit Cobbler!

This Yankee went to Cynthia's Ristorante for some mighty fine southern cuisine and hospitality. Our group of 26 waited a bit, but it was well worth the wait. From signature steaks grilled to perfection, to lasagne baked to a mouth-watering. Then came the fantastic finale-- a Peach and mango cobbler... read more

We spent a day and a night in Paducah on the way to a wedding in Illinois, and had some really nice experiences: friendly people, interesting downtown architecture, and a nice running trail on the levee - but Cynthia's doesn't make the list. It started with the service (doesn't it always?). Our waiter was nice, but overtasked. A good dinner... More

We were on a trip to Branson so we were not expecting to fine a place worthy of the word dining. Surprise! The taste and presentation was first class. The atmosphere was casual and the prices slightly above family casual but inexpensive considering the quality. It is on a cute street for a walk after dinner and our unplanned visit... More

A dear friend and I both had not eaten here. Great service and awesome food. Will go back for sure but it's geared more for a special occasion or date. Not your eat out every weekend place. Quaint, romantic and special. Will never forget the evening with my special lady.

My husband and I have dined at many upscale restaurants but Cynthia's leaves us puzzled. We made reservations and were seated immediately. Our server brought the menus and then poured olive oil on a plate along with grated cheese and fresh black pepper. Now most Italian restaurants serve a nice Italian bread to go with it but Cynthia's didn't. The... More

Was a great though overpriced restaurant when it opened several years ago. I have dined there several times and find it is not the quality which is was when new. Food is good but far overpriced when you have the option of other great places to eat nearby at much better value. Use it on special occasions for the atmosphere... More

By far, in my opinion, the BEST restaurant in Paducah, KY. Courteous & attentive staff, food that could go up against any "big city" restaurant, excellent wine list, & superb cocktails. A great place for a romantic dinner, a small group dinner or a "dine alone" at the bar. I've been often and I'll most definitely be back.

My wife and I have been to Cynthias many times over the past nearly 20 years. Never more than a couple times a year, its a bit pricey. Decided to go New Years Eve to end the year on a high note, didn't work out that way. Service was fine, appetizers were good, and then it went downhill fast. Wife... More
