My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful dinner at the Cypress restaurant in Tallahassee. The location was right around the corner from the Aloft Hotel and so enjoyed a little walk. We were not in the mood for a really larger dinner so I had a fantastic mushroom soup with an appetizer plate of crab cakes.. FANTASTIC. My husband... More

I've been to Cypress several times; it's one of the best restaurants in Tallahassee for local, well-prepared food. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here this week, and every member of the staff went beyond any expectation to make it a special occasion. From a table decorated with confetti hearts, to an amuse bouche sent by the chef to... More

We were visiting Tallahassee recently and friends invited us to join them for dinner at Cypress. What a great restaurant! The vibe here is sophisticated and upscale but not at all stuffy. Lots of original art hangs on the walls of this old building. Food was excellent: I ordered the Hanger Steak medium and it was super - cooked perfectly.... More

Excellent food in an intimate restaurant. The meatloaf was the best I have ever eaten. The cocktails too were very nice. Could not fault this at all, your taste buds will thank you for going

Beginning at bar with a perfect Manhatten w/ Rough Rider rye. Creamy oysters and biscuits are smooth (oysters)and crisp (biscuits). Quail stuffed with sweet sweet potatoes, played well against earthy kale, a crunchy flash fried sage with every bite, paired with creamy grits for an eclectic treat. Caramel ice cream with candied pecans topper. Nice service too.

a very different menu than I expected but all good. the prime rib was excellent. Everyone in my party of 7 were impressed. A bit on the expensive side but, worth it.

Cypress did an impressive job in providing a very nice dining experience, from beginning to end. Cocktails were well done, appetizers were delicious, the mains terrific, and dessert was yummy. The fried eggplant bruschetta for starters was very nicely done as wells as the scallops, some of the best I've ever tasted. I had salmon for dinner and my wife... More

Cypress is by far the best restaurant in Tallahassee! While visiting family in Tallahassee we ate a many restaurants but every other meal was disappointing, compared to our meal at cypress...needless to say we went back to cypress a few more times on our trip. To start they have a great wine selection! Their pimento cheese, oysters & biscuits and... More

Always a great spot to take guests. Food and service are always a stand-out. The only complaint I could mention is it's not the quietest place you'll go. Great midtown location so it's wonderful just before the Symphony.

A creative and varied menu. Choose from small plates or larger entrees. Concentrate on these, but skip dessert.
