Went there with my family sunday night. Awesome food and service like always. Have been there several time now and never came away dis-appointed in the food or the service. The pork belly & scallop entrée was to die for. Can't wait to go back there again.

Went here during restaurant week (unbeknownst to me) and it was packed. I walked in and told the hostess, who I later found out is the new GM, that there would be two of us. She immediately got a snippy attitude and said well you have to have a reservation, obviously we are very busy and it's the last night... More

The food was very fancy but still with a low country flare, and the tableside caesar salad was to die for. i woudl have lived without the everchanging... More

My wife and I had considered the Cypress one of our favorite restaurants for nay on 7 years or more with each visit a very pleasant event. Our anniversary dinner last September seemed to have been a major let down; you know one of those things that happens to the best of restaurants. However, the management was very understanding and...

We had a party of 18 and it never phased the staff. We were seated at a large table in the middle of the dining room, which is a large warehouse, and even with a full house, the noise level was incredibly low. I could hear everyone at the table. Our water glasses never got below half full yet you... More

Awesome does not do their lobster bisque credit. I was expecting a small bowl but there was almost enough for a full meal. We visited during restaurant week and had the three course meal for 40.00 each. The service and food were equal to the best restaurants in New York or Las Vegas. Highly recommend for that special occasion.

I love Cypress. Have dined upstairs and down. Just had a cocktail. Mostly I love to meet a few friends, sit in one of the yummy saffron colored leather chairs at a small table in the bar area and order from either the bar or dinner menu. Last night, starving, I texted a friend who joined me. We both giggles... More

I wanted a nice turkey dinner on Christmas without having to cook. We checked open table to see which restaurants were open Christmas Day, made a reservation at Cypress, and enjoyed a fabulous meal, the best turkey dinner I've ever had, with no preparation of clean up on my part.
