We appreciated the fact that the restaurant was on Open Table and allowed reservations. This streamlines the process from the start. The restaurant is easily accessible from local downtown hotels. Its interior is cozy with a small bar seating area available and coastal artwork on display throughout the restaurant. The pay special attention to details (hello peach-thyme butter with the...

The first time I was at this restaurant - I was so impressed. The service was perfection and the food was so good. I had the seasonal salad and the smoked pork shoulder stack. I cannot say enough about the flavors and presentation of this food. So Good!!!

I was visiting family in Tallahassee and have heard so much about Cypress. I had visited years ago, and friends kept saying it was "world class" and the best restaurant in Tallahassee. I live in a large city and so am accustomed to very good food with very good service, when paying the prices that Cypress commands. Cypress cannot hold... More

It is unfortunate that your objection to our cake fee has turned into a smear campaign across all social media outlets. It’s our policy. You don’t have to like it but abide by it. It is evident that your recollection of events was clouded by your anger. Although the term has been around a while, The Oxford Dictionary added the... More

This place is great. Great bar area with well made cocktails. Cheese course offerings were a great surprise and are outstanding. Nice variety of both classic and new Southern cuisine, well executed and delicious. I've been there twice now and excellent both times. Outstanding wine list and great desserts as well. A really pleasant surprise in Tallahassee!

First of all -- 2 people, 2 entrees, 2 appetizers & one bottle of wine near the bottom of the price list = $173 with a tip. That is a New York City price. Why in the world does one of the cheapest bottles of wine on the list have to be $44? And our new server was very overmatched,... More

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food. I would like to address your criticisms. When you say that your server was “overmatched”, I would like to know more specifics... More

We were taking our son to FSU, we want have dinner together. We checked the reviews and went there. The restaurant is excellent, we had the tuna and was amazing! The desert was very good too. But it was a pleasant surprise to find a cheese menu with a very good selection of artisanal cheeses. The food is outstanding and... More

This is, in my opinion, the best, most innovative and inventive restaurant in Tallahassee. Young, clever chefs. Phenomenal Craft Cocktails. New ways of really playing up the tastes of Florida ingredients. We can't wait to go back. The clientele was mixed - young millennials and slightly older people like us. We travel a lot, and I'd put Cypress up against... More

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
