In the past I have always highly recommended the Cypress, excellent even, however this time, I have to say something changed or maybe we hit it on an off night. It was September 12th, my wife wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary at one of her favorite restaurants. We made reservations no problem had to change them twice, no problem,... More

We ate at Cypress during Restaurant Week in Charleston making our choices their special menu which was quite adequate for selections for their 3 courses. The waiter was excellent and we enjoyed his energy. I was impressed with the way in which soup was served from a small pot and poured into the large soup bowl at the table keeping... More

The motherboard sampler could not have been better or in a more beautiful restaurant. The decor is one of the finest places anywhere with super attention to detail. From a glassed wine wall to the open glass to kitchen prep area. This place is amazing. We stopped to try it on the way to a Magnolia Dinner Reservation and saw... More

A lovely restaurant for a date night or when you are in the mood for a really good meal. Cypress is one of our go to places when visitors are in town.

Ok, when visiting Charleston there are always a group of great restaurants -- but this place has it all….style, good wine list, excellent food and service. We were here with another couple for a long weekend and had a blast. The food was amazing (I had the Steak Diane -- and by the way they cook on the "extremely rare"... More

The Cypress serves the best tableside prepared Caesar salad that my wife and I have ever had. The service is outstanding.

I like to think that I have a refined and diverse palate, and I enjoy dinning in restaurants that are considered fine dinning. This place was average to good. Waitress was excellent. Felt like the food could have been better. Lighting in the restaurant is just ridiculous.... We are not in a night cloud so quit changing the colors... A... More

The food is excellent, if expensive. It's a nice place for a special occasion, and the wait staff are very knowledgable on wine pairings and their extensive collection. My only complaint is the weird mood lighting. The restaurant has colored lights that gradually shift from blue to pink to green ... It's very annoying after a while and takes away... More

We got off to a rough start here because our reservation was for 4...our friends canceled because their flight was delayed and couldn't make it. When we told the hostess, she said "stick them in table 205" Well, we walked by at least 8 tables that were closer to the front of the restaurant and near windows that were not... More
