    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!

    My husband and I went to The Cypress Room for dinner, and enjoyed it immensely. As soon as we walked in, it was like being transported to a different era. The decor was warm and inviting, and the table settings were beautiful. The jazz music playing in the background was a lovely addition to the ambience of the restaurant. It is a small space, for sure, but that only adds to the coziness of it. The bar area is gorgeous. The service was top notch. I didn't feel smothered, nor did I feel like I had to flag down a waiter at every turn. Drinks were replenished quickly, we never ran out of water, and our orders were executed to perfection. The food. OH THE FOOD. JUST TRY IT. *It is pricey, but in my opinion, worth every penny.

    Room was too small what with the bar on one wall of a small room. Food was interesting but limited menu made it difficult with allergies and food sensitivities. Too much strange pairing and nothing was over the top given the prices. Nice selection of wines and the wait staff was very helpful. We were a group of four and most of what was being offered did not work because of dietary restrictions. Definitely check the menu for the night before booking reservations

    We enjoyed lunch very much, it was outstanding. Service is impeccable as well but plan on a slow lunch... If you need to get going not a good option as this is a restaurant to sit and enjoy without a rush. I had the best gazpacho ever and I am from Spain! My second course was rotisserie chicken which was so good it makes you think differently of chicken!

The ambiance is very good, small but w readonable space between tables, the lining and china are nice, the service is off the chart good. Our waiter stephen was very attentious and prompt. Suggested us a good set of plates and pairing wines. I had fish crudo and lamb. My wife the chevre salad and filet mignon. Fries and brussel sprouts as sides. Dessert we shared the chocolate and coffee. Food was very good, not fantastic. But combination of qmbience and very good service turned into a very repeatable experience.

    From the roll that cracked my wife's tooth to the over cooked hamburgers to the ovepriced unappetizing menu choices, its hard to say where to begin. As fans of Michael Schwartz and Hedy Goldsmith his pastry chef, we brought friends from Palm Beach to enjoy a meal that turned out to be a total disaster. Our dentist who was needed as a result of visit to The Cypress Room immediately expressed the same sentiments re the rolls and food.
