Our Cypress Special Date Venue

We've eaten many times at Merche', and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Cypress is very lacking in fine dining restaurants, so having one this close to home is terrific.

For a restaurant located in a hospital parking garage, I wasn't expecting much. What a surprise. Very nice looking, comfortable venue. Service staff a bit slow at first but after things got under way, very attentive (we got there early in the evening). A very diverse menu with Tapas, cheese and olive plates, small dish appetisers. There is a fairly... More

Our bill with tip was over $120( no alcohol, 2 people) and he would not let us use them because we were sitting at the same table. The couple we went with ended up using one. the other one was going to expire ,manager extended... More

This is not your ordinary Italian restaurant. Marche is excellent food, served in elegant style. The wait staff are very professional. The food is outstanding. Everything is done to make it a great dining experience. The location is baffling and makes it ever more exciting. They have a easy to reach location at the bottom of a parking garage. Go... More

Food was well prepared and attractively presented by attentive wait staff. Conveniently located off Tx290 at the Huffmeister exit as you are heading to Austin.

Probably the nicest restaurant in Cypress. I love the atmosphere and the food is consistently good. I like not having to drive in town for a little fancy environment, so Merche fits the bill. The service is a little spotty.

We brought our daughter and a big table full of her friends to Merche to celebrate her 15th birthday last night. The service and the food were both excellent. When I made the reservation, they offered us the "Prom Menu" for the girls since they are teenagers. We modified the menu and offered pizza as well (Merche pizzas are amazing,... More

This was our third visit to Merche. The first two were delightful. This time round was very disappointing. Although the food was good and the waiter very pleasant, the service was incredibly slow. The worst part of the visit was the manager who didn't quite lead us to the table but just expected us to follow. Later on instead of... More

The Atmosphere: Walking in, it screams "old hotel restaurant". There's really nothing special about it. And with the construction on 290, the outdoor seating doesn't give you much to look at. Service: We got there around 7pm on a Tuesday. There were 4 other couples there. Our waiter seemed very disinterested and that his attention was needed elsewhere. Food: The... More
