GREAT Gem in Metairie

Restaurant Cypress is a really great find in Metairie. This is a slightly upscale eatery where you will not find the typical New Orleans fare. Cypress has a traditional menu with some good dishes. They also always offer a list of several daily specials which are verbally described by your... read more

The service was great. Tonight they were able to serve cokes, tea and water. I had the special of the day which was Veal Chop Oscar. It was ok at best and not worth the $38.95 that I was charged. You can hear the kitchen staff cutting up in the prep and kitchen area and I didn't like that at... More

I've been enjoying the meals at Restaurant Cypress since they opened 12 years ago. It's my favorite place to dine whenever I visit New Orleans. I have taken many friend that have the same opinion.

Nice atmosphere and interesting menu. Wish they were also open for lunch. Had the rabbit appetizer and it was really tasty. Specials do change, so you get to try different things each time.

Some of the items that they prepare are from "Old Line" cuisine from the early days of New Orleans restaurants. Many of the Chefs in the City (French Quarter included) have moved to a newer politically correct menu type menu. If you want that, don't go there. If you want some really good exceptional local style food, this is the... More

Hubby and I had a date night and were seated in the bar area where they only had tables for 2. This made it so nice that we were not trying to talk over large tables. When you book a reservation for 2 ask for the bar area. We had the fried soft shell crab and crabcake entrees and this... More

At the suggestion of a local friend, a colleague and I took a client to dinner at Restaurant Cypress. While it was busy, we were seated immediately upon our arrival - and, as requested in our reservation - we were seated at a "quieter" table so we could discreetly discuss business. The host was professional and engaging and personally took... More

This was our 4th or 5th visit to Cypress (always with mixed results but good enough to try again) and it has gone way downhill. First, the service - we were seated and in a half-full room and our drink and then food order was taken. Drinks came out 20 minutes later and the appetizers took a full hour and... More

This restaurant well worth the trip. The menu includes a wide variety of seafood and meats including rabbit. I recommend the salmon. Plenty of parking on site or nearby. An elegant table setting and very attentive service. A corkage fee applies if you bring your own wine, but it is no more than any other restaurant of this quality. Treat... More
