Food, service, and decor are perfect for the capitol and college town. By local standards, some might find it expensive, but it really is not and dollar for dollar may be the best value for your palate in Tallahassee.

From the outside , it is dumpy. But it is one of the best in Tallahassee,fl. Inside it is charming. Service is first rate and food is memorable. Very good wine selection.

Nice ambience at this busy restaurant which seems very popular. We had a cheese course to start and the portions were very small for the price. Bouillabaisse was average good spices but the clams were so overcooked they were inedible and the sausage had the casings on which made it tough to chew. Yellowtail was good but the andouille sausage and peppers overpowered the delicate tuna. Burgers were robust and cooked as ordered. Unfortunate that the service was terrible. No one checked on us to inquire how our meal was and when we did catch a waitress/waiter they all invariable seemed rushed and harried. Maybe just an off night as most reviews are positive.

Had dinner at Cypress. Was told the dining room was full even though it was a pretty slow weekday. They clearly like to put single diners in the bar area.

Menu is smallish and thoughtful. Everything looked good. Had the eggplant bruschetta, fried chicken ($24 for 2 pieces? Seriously? Wow!). Both were tasty but overpriced.

Service was unthoughtful and painfully slow. Several people waited on me and repeated themselves/didn't know where I was in my dinner. Frustrating.

We've been to dinner three times at the Cypress and have loved it every time. Great service, friendly staff and wonderful wine list (by the glass!). At our last visit we had the cheese plate and enjoyed the varied selection of tasty cheeses. I recommend the shrimp and grits (light and yummy) and the beef tenderloin (asparagus cooked perfectly as well as the steak). Save room for dessert.
