    This is our 5th time at The Cypress Room and it still is special. From the specialty cocktails to the unique recipes the restaurant never disappoints. The service is warm without being overbearing and the ambience is perfect for special occasions. We will be back.

    Food service was very - very slow -- restaurant small, so customer waiting for tables were hovering over us. My husband ordered the 36 oz rib eye -- to be shared -- it was so tough they could not cut it - sent it back - so 2 of us ate dinner - while the other 2 waited for another entree.. That was too expensive cut of meat to be tough. The waiter was very accomadating - but the food was very - very disappointing. Expected a lot more from Genuine Group

    Exceptional service and great ambiance, nice decor. However the food did not match the expectations. It was just good. The highly anticipated burger was IMPOSSIBLE to eat and savour correctly: the presentation, a ¨tower¨of meat and bun, had to be ¨deconstructed¨ to eat! Dessert selections did not inspire us. Overall very expensive and overrated.

    The ambiance was dark and sultry, service and food superior. From the moment we walked in the service was timely, knowledgeable and they worked as a cohesive team, very well run front of the house. Our waiter Steven was excellent with his recommendations and knowledge of the food and quirky beverage menu. The amuse was an eggplant tapanade or a bruscetta, both excellent. We had the yellowtail crudo, frog's legs (extra item) beet soup, rabbit confit all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Our coconut cake had edible pansies, so when you ate it, you tasted an intense and beautiful floral note. One minor issue was the lighting was so low, it was difficult to read the menu. The taxidermy heads on the wall seemed out of place.

    From the first step into the eclectic decor, I was taken back into another period in time, and I felt welcomed. I love old fashioned china, especially when mixing and matching it at a table, this pulled me in. My husband, not a hunter, but was relaxed with the deer heads on the wall, mixed with the darker paneling, a delight. Of course, the most fun was the chandeliers in the room, it pulled it all together. The visual high lead right into a fun food delight, especially the Tartine starter, that I could have made a whole meal of. The wait staff was present but not hovering, it was great having them share a smile with us throughout the meal. Fabulous fun with food and ambiance, I can't wait to return with friends and family Cheri Ball

    a bit dissppointed after all the reviews that I saw: very nice place to see and be seen. Excellent wine list. I was expecting outstanding food: food was good but not outstanding. Service good but "dry": when my wife asked for a specific meal she was told: madame you have in the menu! The best part: the beautiful women that go there. Otherwise, I think that the restaurant is over rated.

    Michael Schwartz has no equal in Miami. This is a men's club just as one would have imagined in Florida's early days (except that women are more than welcome): wild game adorn the walls, the food is served on vintage-style plates and glassware, the food itself is incredible (better than one would have enjoyed in the original) and the bar is one which would be found only in one's dreams. When lunching with your significant other, do not miss Tea for Two. Service is both friendly and exceptionally high level. Top notch all the way.

    I selected this restaurant because of the great reviews, specially for their service, I was NOT disappointed, service was superb. My wife & I both enjoyed it tremendously, we both had the special menu wine & food pairing, great choice if you want to try various dishes & wines. Only one of the Red wines was a tad below "MY" expectation. Because of the high price (WELL WORTH IT) we will visit on special occasions. Highly recommend The Cypress Room

    I 've been in many cities with great culinary culture like New York, Lima, Rome, and I tell you Cypress Room is simply the best restaurant here in Miami. I tasted the pork, the best the i eated in my life, and with my friends we order the cypress burguer for starter, you know that's a "must", and the service and the ambience are 10 for 10. Definitely i recommend.

    Came here with a friend for Miami Spice and was blown away by the ambiance, the service, and the meal. We sampled the kale risotto (lovely lemon notes) and oxtail terrine, drooled over the marrow bone with shaved celery and preserved lemon, and gushed about our duck breast and swordfish over heirloom beans. Definitely a hot spot, but it's the food and service that solidify its place in the top restaurants in Miami.

    Stumbled across The Cypress Room while looking for a last minute reservation due to a heavy rain storm preventing us from getting to Miami Beach. Found this restaurant on Open Table mobile app and managed to get a reservation 30 minutes before arrival. Staff was very professional and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend The Cypress Room to anyone looking for a great find in the Miami Design District.

    Because of Miami Spice we have taken the opportunity to try out some new and prominent restaurants.Some of these restaurants see Miami Spice as an opportunity to entice customers to try and then return. The Cypress Room is one of them. We were welcomed warmly and the Miami Spice menu is excellent with plenty of choice s from the regular menu. All dishes were perfectly prepared as were the cocktails at the bar. The service was very professional and friendly. This is a restaurant to which we will be returning, it is a real gem!

    The place is small which gives it n intimate and romantic feel. The service was excellent ant the food was delicious. I had the sea bass and it was outstanding and cooked perfectly. My fiancé had the pork which was good but he felt it was a little dry. We both love the risotto. We went there and took advantage of the Miami Spice deal which made it more affordable but I would go back again a and pay full price.

    My wife had lunch this week at Cypress Room. Small establishment, 40 patrons, intimate yet the table settings and service showed an elegance rarely found. Familiar with Michael Schwartz's food, we wanted to try his upscale venue. The 3 course setting is good value, albeit I am certain the regular menu would have proven more the cuisine we were after. Unfortunately my wife's "Rouge Chicken" had to be returned. Tough, dry and not eatable. My grouper was very good, placed over a bed of saffron risotto. Desert that is part of the special leaves a lot to be desired. I would suggest instead of trying to serve a fancy dish of "nothing", a good tart or pastry could end an otherwise decent meal.

    Born and raised in Miami. We are finally arriving on the culinary map. Michael killed it with this one. Been to all the finest restaurants in the U.S. from Alinea to Daniel to French Laundry. While this restaurant (or any restaurant in Miami) is by no means on that same pedestal - Miami is closing the gap slowly but surely. Must try!

    We went mid-week when it wasn't that busy and it was terrific. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about both the food and the cocktails (we had some very specific questions) and seemed to be there only when we needed him. The agnolotti were incredible little pasta pillows that melted in our mouths. The fish of the day was a black grouper in a light broth that was also delicious. We had to swap or it would have been war. I wanted to start with a nicknack cocktail but it was so good I ordered another to go with dinner. We finished with the coconut cake, which does not describe the happiness it generates. Everything was really so good! Our friends recommended Cypress Room and they were right. We'll be back!
