Most of the time when I go out for dinner, which isn’t that often. (Maybe a few times a month) I leave thinking, “yeah that was good but we could have done it just as good or better at home.” Tonight my wife had two...of the best meals we have had in a Long time. The staff and owner were very friendly. Ambience was also very good which is important to my wife. I’m all about the flavor. We’ll defiantly go back as they hit high marks on bothMore

Creating high quality fine dining meals for take-out is a skill the Black Tulip has demonstrated that few can pull off, and at an affordable price. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a take-out meal that had curb service for easy access. He...ordered veal and I had mahi-mahi that were well-prepared. Both came wiht fresh vegetables cooked just right, warm, crusty rolls, miso soup, salad and delectable desserts - cheese cake and housemade key lime pie. This was our first experience there as we recently moved to the area. We will definitely come back when the dining room re-opens. A five star experience for foodies!More

The price fix selection was limited. Appetizers and Desserts were good, but my Veal Saltimbocca must have been prepared ahead of time and was served cool, dried out with no sauce.

We had dinner here before we went to see "Sound of Music". Dinner was excellent, so was the service. We had the three-course meal, which was very good value for money. I started with the tuna appetizer and my companion had a spinach salad. The...tuna was excellent. The salad had just a bit too much vinegar for my companion's taste. I had a crusted blackened salmon. Delicious. My companion had the mahi mahi. She found it bland. The vegetables served with both meals were delicious - just "a point". We had dessert - creme caramel and key lime oie. The creme had not been made that day (a bit rubbery) but had a good flavour nevertheless. The key lime pie could have done with more lime. Service was excellent. We had a bottle of Piersporter Spatlese to do with our meal. It suited very well. Price with tip $130. I thought this was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant in many years. I'd go again.More

The Tulip has been in Cocoa Village for as long as I can remember...aka The Black Tulip. We went there on Thursday night for the first time in a few years, and had an excellent experience. The service ( thank you James) , the ambiance...( we sat in the bar area) and the food were all top shelf! My partner had the Roast Duck and I had the Mahi Florentine. We plan to make this “regular” favorite. Visiting snowbirds should give the Tulip a try! You won’t be disappointed!More

Tried it again after many years and was hoping it was better than it delivered. The Brie appetizer was good. We were a party of 4 and no one really enjoyed their main course. I found the food to be heavy. The key lime pie...for dessert was delicious. We won’t be returning.More

Acoustics are lacking causing the the dining room to be very loud. Even the waiter had to raise his voice to be heard. Food was average.

We recently visited the Tulip restaurant after having left the area more than 30 years ago. We enjoyed the dinner special, which even came with wine and dessert. The salmon and the chicken were quite delicious. The service made the wonderful meal even more special....So glad that we returned to the Tulip! We were delighted to find that it was every bit as wonderful as it was in the 1980s.More

The best thing about this restaurant is that is an easy walk to the Cocoa Playhouse. But the last time I was here, the meals were just okay. The salad was just ordinary. I had the grouper special, but the fish was dry from being...overcooked. The rice was uneven -- some of it was okay, but some of the grains were hard, but whether from under or overcooking I could not tell. The veggies were just ordinary. Our server was pleasant, but inexperienced.More

Great People, Great Food, Prices were not out of sight. BTW they are now known as "The Tulip" (I think for 3-4 years now).
