First time visit to Charleston! Great atmosphere, great staff and great food. The oyster-ahi appetizer was amazing as was the charcuterie! Very worth the money!

We loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding! Terrific selection of wine and cocktails. I had the grilled oysters and the butternut squash ravioli. My husband had the carpaccio and pork belly and beef short ribs. Everything was perfect. Our friends and my husband said it quite possibly was the best meal they had ever had. Our server was...

From the exterior of the building, the restaurant is not impressive. However, once inside the facility is beautiful and modern. The perfect setting for what turned out to be a great meal. The grilled oysters as an appetizer were very good. The crab cake was also well prepared. We had the steak diane and the lamb loin. Both were terrific.... More

My husband and I had dinner Thursday night at Cypress. We shared a Cesar salad and chateubriand for two. The salad was prepared table side and was delicious. The beef was spectacular. The restaurant atmosphere has a cool modern vibe. We had great service and all in all a lovely dining experience.

Joined 2 of my friends for dinner here last night. I will have to say from the moment you walk in the door until the minute you leave the establishment does not fail to impress. The service was great (he was very serious) didn't get our jokes, but that's ok he did his job amazingly. The manage stopped by to... More

The menu is very good and cooked to perfection! If you study the menu you won't overpay since the prices are pretty high but the portions are very large too. Service was excellent!

It's hard to do a large group well (like 40 people) but Cypress hit it out of the park. Snapper and steak were excellently presented and molten chocolate cake was decadent. Service unflagging. It's often hard to make a restaurant comparison when you have a large group but this was clearly better than Magnolia.

After a great evening at it's sister restaurant Magnolia, the night before we were looking forward to more of the same at Cypress. Unfortunately it was not to be. The setting was very pleasant, decor was interesting and very comfortable. However, the waiter was odd, apparently new to the job with a strange and not appreciated sense of humor. The... More

Odd that I couldn't find anything that looked good on the menu, which should be a warning sign ("Leave now"). Anyhooways, I ordered the BBQ trio because nothing else looked good. The chicken has a weird hard coating on it - I think it was rice - which gave a mouth feel of over cooked. Whole thing was nearly inedible.... More
