Cypress always did decent, reliable dinners, but recently (twice in the last two weeks) our meals were outstanding...as good as any of the best in New Orleans. Great soft-shelled crabs very lightly flash-fried and PERFECTLY cooked Pompano are at the top of the list. It is a neighborhood restaurant that is casual, comfortable, and now, outstanding in its kitchen preparation.... More

I've come here several times with friends and the food has always been very good to great. They almost always have entrees that are not on the online menu. More recently, I had soft shell crab, and it was to die for. For an appetizer I had the Crawfish & Crabmeat Parma. It was exquisite, but very rich. Nevertheless, I... More

This fantastic family owned and operated restaurant is so well-hidden that is is patronized predominantly by locals. This establishment is an equal favorite among those celebrating special events, a weekend date, or simply want a night out. The grilled portobello, duck egg roll, or black and blue bruschetta appetizers are not to be missed. All of the entrees are well... More

OMG!!!! De-lish!!!! Had intentions of trying to rabbit dish that is on the regular menu. However, there were too many great specials that made us decide to try the specials rather than the rabbit. We started with the Mirliton Bisque. It was a very smooth, tasty and loaded with seafood. We also had the seafood Parma appetizer to start. It... More

The food was good, the wine list very limited, and the service was a little above average. The atmosphere was less than average. I would go back in a pinch, but there are many other restaurants in a 20 mile radius that are better overall.

Been at this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. Love the mirliton soup, a favorite. The fish dinners are to my liking.

We went here for my boyfriends birthday dinner and it was a terrific experience. We waited for a table at the bar where the bartender was very friendly and helpful. Once we were seated we ordered a bottle of the cheapest wine which they still presented with all of the fan fare. I had the thin sliced veal which was... More

Living in Metairie we typically make the trek into New Orleans to go to a great restaurant. This time we decided to try Restaurant Cypress which is literally a few streets away from our house. We couldn't have made a better choice. We made reservations well in advance and when we arrived, the small restaurant was packed. As soon as... More

This tucked away restaurant has never disappointed us. We love the seafood and the wine choices. Zach was very knowledgable about the specials. We had the oyster appetizer, crab cakes and pompano specials. Delicious! Always a treat to dine here!

The service was great. Tonight they were able to serve cokes, tea and water. I had the special of the day which was Veal Chop Oscar. It was ok at best and not worth the $38.95 that I was charged. You can hear the kitchen staff cutting up in the prep and kitchen area and I didn't like that at... More
