A word from Cyrus
• Cyrus is the dream restaurant of Chef Douglas Keane and Maitre d’ Nick Peyton located in the idyllic town of Healdsburg and the beautiful surrounds of three valleys featuring the most important appellations in the heart of Sonoma County. Chef Keane creates contemporary luxury cuisine offered in a prix fixe 8 course Chef’s Tasting Menu or optional 5 course with parallel vegetarian menus. Sommelier Chase DuBay has assembled an extensive list of world class wines with a special focus on Sonoma appellations. The arched and vaulted dining room welcomes guests to elegant tables set with fine linens, crystal, china and silver. Guests are greeted warmly as they enter the bar while a myriad of special touches await them throughout the evening. Warm canapés arrive to be enjoyed with a cocktail or glass of bubbly served from a Champagne and Caviar cart. An amuse bouche is served as a small course to begin the meal, while Mignardises and a box of Bon Bons provide a celebratory ending

    It is simply a sin that Cyrus is being forced to close by their landlord this weekend. I enjoyed the best dinner I ever had last night and was thrilled to be there. Creative and complex flavors burst with every.bite. Chef Doug Keane truly has a gift and whatever he chooses to do next, I'll be there. Service is impeccable without being formal or stiff. You feel special and welcomed from the moment you walk in. I have raved about Cyrus for years, always being concerned that other's experiences couldn't live up to my raves, but it always has. Everyone thanks me for sending them there. A dining experience, not just a dinner. Good luck to the whole team and thank you.

    Dined on 10/13/2012
    we were lucky to have caught Cyrus before they closed. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the food (we had the 5 course menu). The only thing I would have to say is that the service was spotty. Our main waiter was professional but the others were hit and miss. I had read that before on urbanspoon and yelp and can concur. Definitely not the same service as at PerSe or other Michelin starred restaurants. The restaurant was also very noisy. i think the low arched ceilings add to the noise.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/12/2012
    Multiple courses of petite, interestingly presented food make for a great meal. Unlike some French style restaurants, we didn't leave hungry. That said, you should know what to expect going in. Modern art isn't for everyone and neither is this restaurant. And, it isn't cheap. But, it is a great experience. Certainly, something to do (at least once) and I am very glad we went to Cyrus. I won't be seeking out this type of culinary experience again soon; however, I'm glad I went and would recommend the venue and the food.

    A superb dining experiance. We have now enjoyed the dining at Cyrus several times,and are saddened with the news that it will be closing at the end of October. We hope the owners re-locate soon and return the magic of the restaurant to all of us who have had the privilege of eating there.

    Combine fresh ingredients, culinary creativity, knowledgeable sommeliers, an extensive wine list, and immaculate service and you have Cyrus. What a tremendous experience. My wife and I had the 5 course tasting menu and wine pairing and we both left satisfied and in amazement. Come on, Michelin, these guys deserve that 3rd star!

    Dined on 10/5/2012
    The food was, as always, excellent. The service is also wonderful, although we had the wine pairings with our dinner and sometimes that could feel a bit rushed (that is, the time spent explaining the wine and why it had been paired with a particular dish). Also, the pours with the pairing are not exactly generous, and that makes the pairing a bit over-priced in my view (although the wine list overall is priced on the high side, and with corkage at $65 . . . ). Still, a great experience, and we'll be sad to see Cyrus close, which will happen at the end of this month.

    Absolutely one of the best meals we have ever had. It's a shame that the restaurant is closing later this fall. The food was top notch as was the service. We had the five course tasting menu with an outstanding bottle of Sonoma wine and loved every course they brought. The tray of desserts to choose to take home in individual travel boxes was the finishing touch to a lovely evening. And, when we asked for a copy of the menu, they put together an envelope with a copy of the menu commemorating our anniversary.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 9/28/2012
    Sadly this restaurant is closed for now and we are hoping for a sister restaurant in its place in the future. The only critical feedback I would have was that the wine pairing with the meal was not as appealing during our last visit as it had been in the past. Every wine we tasted was on the "mineral-y" side and was described as such. Would pick my own if I had a do-over. The food as usual was heavenly...

    Dined on 9/27/2012
    Every dish was interesting and delicious. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't enough for me to eat (older woman, 5'6 128 lb). I ate all day long, so it wasn't as if I was "saving myself" the the special meal. There was no real "entree", more like hors d'oeurves. I ate more dessert than I care to due to the lack of protein. You could bulk out with bread, but for $120++, I don't think you should have to.

    TigeresqueVIP
    Dined on 9/27/2012
    We've eaten here twice now. Both times it was virtually perfect in terms of ambience, service, and of course food. It is extremely expensive ($450 - $600 for 2), but it's a very special occasion place. My one serious complaint this time is that I found the wine list stunningly expensive. Not wildly overpriced, maybe, as the wines are top notch. But the LEAST expensive sparkling wine by the glass is now $28/glass (previously $18, as on the website wine list.) And I was annoyed to have identified on their web site wine list two wines - a white and a red - that were both excellent and in my price range of $90 or so. Neither was available. Had I known, I would have brought my own and eaten the $65 corkage (which had been $50 before)

    Just okay, I would not put it in the same class as some of the other restaurants in the area such as Gary Danko's or the French Laundry, which is what I was expecting. The food was not bad it just did not have that wow factor I was looking for. I read many reviews on the restaurant from local papers to the wine spectator and it did not live up to the hype.
