“Fancy restaurant was good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We dine out often but its rare to see a truly formal setting in a restaurant anymore. We had been wine tasting all day so were not dressed to the nines, but many other diners were in dressy dresses and suits, which is very nice to see. The room was beautiful and formally decorated. The wait staff was formal as well. Very impressive service. My husband and I do not love tasting menus. The blt course was disappointing because the broth was cold and I did not know that ahead of time and I do not like cold soups. I could have chosen something different. They do give you choices here with the menu. There was one other thing, like a mousse with sea urchin that I did not like and thought tasted fishy. Outside of that, everything was delicious and wish I had had bigger portions of the scallop dish and chicken thigh courses.

“Better than French Laundry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Amazing dinner. We opted for the 5-course meal and loved it. All of the special touches, amuse bouche, handmade treats to take home, etc.

“Not a true 2-star Michelin restaurant, overpriced, mediocre food, inconsistent service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Despite the rave reviews this was the low point of our vacation in wine country. The service is inconsistent, the atmosphere is ooff (tables too close together for a restaurant of this calibre), but above all the food is so-so. With such high quality food on offer in this part of the world for a fraction of the cost, my advice is to give Cyrus a miss.

“Award for Snobbiest Wine Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

It really doesnt matter how good the food is when, after you've left, the only taste left in your mouth is the bad one you get after being treated "small" by His Highness, the Holy Wine Staff

“Exceded expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Great food, outstanding service. $135 for the 8 course menu was a bargain. My partner and I were full by the 6th course. It was an amazing 3hr experience. I've dined in a few Michelin star restaurants in Northern CA, France and UK and Cyrus was the best in terms of service.
