    We had not been in awhile. Mahi mahi was over cooked & dry. Tuna & steak good. A little too cautious with a rare steak.

    The Cypress Grille is a must do. The lunch menu is somewhat limited but everything we had was excellent. To top it off, all five of us had one of the fine deserts and they rate just as well as the dining menu. My 73 year old mother did state we will be bringing her back to the Cypress grille for her birthday dinner.

    We attended during the lunch menu hours. We have yet to try the dinner menu, but look forward to that opportunity. Service is very good. The waiter/waitress' know their dishes and are engaged and attentive. The food is delicious (I think the best Bison burger around). As an added treat, their ice cream is authentic and delicious.

    I thought the restaurant was very nice and comfortable. Our server was polite and tried to make us feel welcome and relaxed. My only complaint was that I ordered the 27 oz. baseball sirloin and it was very tough and I couldn't eat it. My wife had the same steak and hers was very tender and tasty. I left a large portion of the steak plus all the remains that I chewed and couldn't swallow. I told our server and he was sorry but made no effort to either send out another or possibly ask if I would like to have something else. We paid our bill and left.

    I been to the Cypress Grille a number of times and always had great food. This visit was no exception. The chef is very creative and every dish is beautifully displayed. In general the portions are reasonable: There is enough to be fully satisfied and not need to leave much behind. Some dishes will be enough to take home for later. Service is generally good. The wine list is excellent!

    For our little town of Boerne, Texas, Cypress Grille is the best we have. It's a comfortable restaurant with good food, good service and a nice wine selection. Its not the caliber of a Cap Grille or Bob's Chop House, but less expensive than those and not as stuffy. Always an enjoyable meal in my experience.

  • Lunch After Boerne Market Days

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    I had researched where to have lunch, after attending Boerne Market Days. This place was frequently mentioned. Upon the walkup it looked like a narrow eating place bar type place, not impressive but decided to see the menu anyway. Wow to our surprise behind the narrow bar room was a lovely dining area with fabulous choices on the reasonably priced menu. Don't let the outside interior fool you, there is a lovely dining area in the back via a narrow walkway. They have daily specials designated for each of the days and in addition they have chef's specials each day that are excellent. The pricing for the daily specials for lunch is usually $10 to $11 for good portions. The service is also excellent with friendly and knowledgeable staff.

    Chef has moved to offering more fish specials. Inventive without being ridiculous. Service is friendly, not cloying. Hubby must have the chicken, but I am too tempted by fish and amazing appetizer specials.

    The Cypress Grille offers excellent dining on Boerne's Main Steet that is on par with more expensive restuarants in San Antonio. It is a great place for a quiet dinner with friends or a business discussion. The wait staff was attentive and prompt, the food was expertly prepared and presented.

    Had Grandparents/In-Laws visiting from out of town. Took them to Cypress Grille for Sunday Brunch. Special menu had a nice range of options from gourmet breakfast dishes to salads, sandwiches and hearty dinner selections. Everyone was pleased with their meals. Delicious, fresh, filling and nice presentation. The place is cute and the service outstanding. It's my new favorite restaurant!

    Tenderloin overcooked and too dry. Seafood soup had thin crab legs with practically no meat. Dessert special at $7 was underwhelming. Waiter was hesitant and we could not hear what he was saying. Very disappointing for our special going away meal with friends. Never again! When we complained to the manager about the med well tenderloin being well done, he agreed and on the $35 meal he compensated the free $7 dessert. We found that to be unreasonable compensation.

    Great meal and outstanding service. Our waiter was extremely courteous and helpful, recommending the perfect wine for our meal. The MahiMahi and Halibut dinners were done very well. Twice, the wait staff quickly replaced a dropped cloth napkin before my fiance even noticed. The atmosphere is unique combination of rustic and elegant. It was the perfect location for our special occasion.

    The best meal ever at Cypress. I had the special which was a generous red snapper filet topped with an avocado relish and the appetizer special. That special was marinated bulgur wrapped in cucumber and a small side salad. Both were extraordinary. My husband always gets the rotisserie chicken. The kitchen is very creative without being weird. We also had the best restaurant ice cream I've ever had.

    We lunched with eight neighbors who wanted a quieter place to talk. Our server let us choose between a table in the restaurant or one just outside the door in the bar/reception area. We chose the latter because we are seniors with some hearing impairment in crowded places. Our waitress Taylor did a thorough job explaining the menu to us and getting our orders served in a timely manner. Food presentation was delightful and beyond yummy to our taste buds. Several ladies even ventured into the desert menu and were not disappointed. We thought $8.00 per glass of house wine a bit pricy. All in all we had a delightful time at Cypress Grille and I will welcome the opportunity for a return visit. Thank you. Susie Schmitz

    We were early for our reservation but the hostess found us another table with no problem. The restaurant was wonderful, atmosphere great, and the wine list perfect. Our waiter may have been somewhat new to the restaurant but he made it up in service and personality. We couldn't have been happier with the evening. The place was full by the time we left, so reservations are a must.
