During a trip to Florida we stopped one night in Paducah . Unfortunately we went to Cynthia's restaurant for dinner The place was way so dark, we had to wait so long to order. The food was good but we pay $100 for my husband , our two kids and myself food. Could be nice for a romantic dinner but... More

We had wonderful crab cakes for an appetizer which were as crab cakes should be, all about the crab. For our entres we had shrimp angel hair pasta - the shrimp were plump and juicy and the pasta was cooked perfectly. We also had a steak dish which was cooked as we ordered it. The wine list is decent and... More

I had the chance to visit Cynthia's on a recent trip to Paducah. I had asked around for a recommendation for a nice restaurant - and Cynthia's was recommended by a friend. It was a Tuesday night around 7pm - and the place was nearly empty. However, when I arrived and said I had no reservation - I received a... More

I have been hearing rave reviews about Cynthia's since moving to town. We finally planned a night out. In all fairness we did not have a reservation- so when we were seated on the second floor right next to a stand up cooler, I said nothing. Our waiter was prompt and knowledgable about the food, wine, specials and offered some... More

Walking around the town we saw two seats at the bar of this restaurant and grabbed them. The personable bartender recited the specials and the first soft shells of the season were available! They were lightly breaded and delicious served with an angel hair pasta in a delicate sauce. My partner also enjoyed his meal. We had an enjoyable night... More

While traveling in the area on business I stopped by Cynthia's after hearing good things from others. Unfortunately my experience was disappointing largely from poor service. I was dining alone, but the waiter mistakenly assumed (he never asked me) that I was waiting for others to join me. After waiting 25 minutes, and finally getting his attention while he informed...

The interior of Cynthia's is beautiful. Loved the brick and the art work. My wife and I had the same veal scaloppini dish and it was excellent. However, it didn't need to be served on top of potatoes. Pasta would have been much better choice or the veal could easily have been plated alone. The wine list is limited and... More

We enjoyed our dinner here on April 25th. The service started out well but deteriorated as our waiter got more tables. We shared a grilled mozzarella salad that was excellent. We each ordered the scallops with angel hair but with different sauces, both great. Desserts sounded wonderful but we rarely eat them. The check took much too long to arrive... More

We brought in our birthday girl her favorite cake. Cynthia did not tell us that she was going to charge us to serve the cake. She just stuck the extra service charge on each of our bills. Our party was about a $700 tab. You would think that she would serve the cake in appreciation for our business. We were... More

In all fairness, no one called ahead to ask our policy regarding bringing in food into our full service restaurant. My bartender accepted the cake and serving utensil when you entered. I was not aware he had not relayed our policy. The plate charge was $1.50 per person and was refunded at your request in cash. We have an excellent... More

Cynthia's is simply magnificent. We were fortunate enough to reserve a table for two on the evening of Valentine's Day. We thought to check in early to see if a cancellation might have popped up and we could dine earlier. We were told there hadn't been any cancellations and since the small bar there was filled, we were redirected right... More
