Black Cypress, in spite of a very crowded, hectic graduation weekend, did not disappoint in service, bar, kitchen and ambiance. Our party of 4 had a variety from the menu - favorites included the grilled meats (cooked to perfection and flavorful), anything with the meaty, smoky bacon, such as the Carbonara and the Bread Pudding with Huckleberry Ice cream. We... More

Likely the finest dining in the Palouse. I had a delicious German sparkling wine, cheese plate and an unforgettable carbonara with the restaurant's specialty bacon. The Caesar salad and split pea soup were equally delish with the bacon... Basically, I recommend any dish with this amazing bacon.

Have been looking for awhile for a decent steak in Pullman and found this fine establishment. Immediately upon walking in, I found the atmosphere comfortable and relaxing. Classy, but small townish, with a romantic flair. I ordered the ribeye off the menu and asked if they had steak sauce...you would have thought I had insulted the waiter. He said something... More

This is a tough review. The food is probably 5-star for many patrons; the service is quite excellent. However, I fully admit that we will not go back. My pasta dish was mostly noodles (very little sauce), our son's spaghetti tasted only of cinnamon, and he reported that eating it was a chore. (He is 17, and he did finish... More

I often go there on Monday nights for their half price hors d'oeurves, but other nights as well. Their lamb chops are amazing!

We are Pullman locals, and this is one of our favorite restaurants in town! The food is amazing, especially the carbonara. Their drink list is also very fun, and if you're a gin fan, definitely try Arab Spring. It's pretty amazing! The ambiance is also really nice - low lighting makes it romantic, but not so much so that you... More

This place is a must go to. The short but complete menu covers all the bases for deliciousness. There seems to be a distinct nod towards a Greek palate (which I enjoy). The roasted chicken was moist and delicious. Their wine list is limited but seemed complete, you don't spend your time wandering through pages and pages of choices. I... More

Husband and I picked this restaurant off Trip Advisor during a short trip to Pullman. The food was imaginative and prepared well. Wine list was varied, and the by-the-bottle list looked very interesting with a nice mix of foreign and domestic. We'd go back in a heartbeat. Be ware, however that reservations likely are needed for Friday's and weekends.

I had heard good things about this restaurant so decided to take my wife there for her birthday. It was a Monday and I couldn't get the exact time for the reservation which surprised me. When we arrived it was obvious as to why. The place was extremely busy. We were seated immediately and that was just the beginning of... More
