Mediocre at best

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... read 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

Tried several things on the menu & a couple of specials. All great! (Especially the garlic soup!!) Service attentive. Would recommend & will go back.

This is a typical N.O. style family restaurant. Not pretentious and very comfortable for the local crowd. It was a bit of a wait for a table but it was a Saturday night and we had a 6 top so that is to be expected. I found it noisy and not the most updated atmosphere (it could use a face... More

Almost on the corner of Transcontinental and West Esplanade in Metairie (a suburb between downtown New Orleans and the airport),Cypress has good food. Appetizers, including barbecue shrimp and duck eggroll. Like most New Orleans restaurants, was noisy.

This restaurant is in an unassuming location in Metairie, outside New Orleans. The restaurant is clean and well put together, if slightly dated. The staff and service were very good. The continental and Cajun/Creole fusion food was excellent. My family and I were pleased with the food and we recommend you visit this restaurant.

Dined with friends who hadn't been here in yrs, it was our first experience. We started with appetizers of fried lobster tail, and beets with a crabmeat romelade sauce. Then for entrees we had soft shell crab topped with a crab cake topped with sauce, a pan sheet thin veal with crabmeat sauce and lobster raviolis- both were rich and... More

Went on a Thursday evening, around nine, and were thrilled to get a table. Elegant restaurant with amazing specials and entrees. Fantastic service. We got the oyster appetizer, which included two oysters Bienville and two fried oysters with spinach, all four served on half shell. Perfect for a couple to share! Also shared mirliton bisque. OMG! You must try this... More

Restaurant Cypress is a hidden gem located in a suburb of New Orleans but it can hold its own against many of the famous New Orleans restaurants. The seafood dishes are hard to beat - usually there is a fresh fish special every night and it is always delicious. The combination fried softshell crab and crab cake entree is perfection.... More
