Alway a delight dining experience.

Been at this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. Love the mirliton soup, a favorite. The fish dinners are to my liking.

We went here for my boyfriends birthday dinner and it was a terrific experience. We waited for a table at the bar where the bartender was very friendly and helpful. Once we were seated we ordered a bottle of the cheapest wine which they still presented with all of the fan fare. I had the thin sliced veal which was... More

Living in Metairie we typically make the trek into New Orleans to go to a great restaurant. This time we decided to try Restaurant Cypress which is literally a few streets away from our house. We couldn't have made a better choice. We made reservations well in advance and when we arrived, the small restaurant was packed. As soon as... More

This tucked away restaurant has never disappointed us. We love the seafood and the wine choices. Zach was very knowledgable about the specials. We had the oyster appetizer, crab cakes and pompano specials. Delicious! Always a treat to dine here!

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.

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 server. I wish they would print these specials so the... More

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
