  • "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."

  • "The Cypress Room is another gem not to be missed from The Genuine Hospitality Group! The venue is intimate and beautifully decorated, and the service is impeccable. Stephen, our server, was excellent, as was Amanda, the manager. The food is amazing and gorgeously presented. The Cypress Room is by far one of the best all-around restaurants in Miami."

  • "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 place is little and nice, but the food is without any flavor at all. prices are on the high side but they would be ok if the food was fine. I wont recomend this place they made you have a deposit made on your CC in order for them to take your reservation, as a result the place is empty. food was dissapointing."

  • "We went for my wifes bday and i can tell she was happy with it! 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."

  • "chose this restaurant to do a a Valentines lunch with wife and wow , couldnt have gone any better , wife had beet salad which she said was best she ever tasted and then we shared the whole yellowtail and it was awesome , like one from the keys , except better prepared. dessert was also great , the service was outstanding , I mean A+ all the way around"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "First timer, went for our anniversary. As an appetizer we had Bone Marrow, which was awesome. Entree, we had the whole fish which was yellowtail snapper and was good. Our server, Gabriel, was absolutely outstanding, very knowledgeable and friendly, while at the same time not intrusive at all. His recommendations from the pre-din cocktails to the apps and entrees and wine pairing (an exceptional Pinot Noir) were spot on!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "What a disappointment. The James Beard award winning chef might want to pay attention to the expensive, pedestrian fare coming out of this kitchen. Overpriced, under salted and nothing special. Desserts are laughable. 6 tiny pieces of cubed cake with half a sliced strawberry and lemon curd for $16. Didn't even fill the plate."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Service and knowledge of the menu was amazing. Felt like eating im a nyc restaurant. Food was impresive, excelent and delicious. Could be one of the best food I have eaten in miami. Pre-theater menu is a great choice. Definitely coming back soon and recomending it to friends"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Everything about the restaurant is top notch. Ceeative cocktails, sophisticated dishes and professional service."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The prix fixe lunch at $31 is an almost obscene bargain. On a brief visit to Miami, I hoped to have the opportunity to eat at the Cypress Room, but dinner was impossible. Lunch service on a Friday was peaceful, and the lunch crowd-- unlike Michael's Genuine-- was small. Quality, presentation and service were impeccable start to finish. Thanks to the staff for a lovely meal."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "There are many pricier and more "fine dining" items on the menu, but I ordered the burger and it was excellent. My husband didn't think the fries were quite up to snuff, but our friends loved their whole fish (presented, then fileted for them) and bone marrow appetizer. We all liked the atmosphere, upscale but not at all stuffy."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The Cypress Room continues Michael Schwartz' record of remarkable Miami restaurants. Service is tailored to the individual with such skill and consideration that one feels deeply appreciated. Each course is not merely tasty and beautiful but distinctive, in a way that many "trendy" restaurants may attempt but few actually achieve. Flavors are bold, fresh, and clear. The atmosphere is comfortable and intimate. There is valet parking handled with politeness and skill. Don't miss this opportunity if you are in Miami and appreciate real culinary talent and hospitality rather than showy imitations thereof."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Too much pretense for me, but I'm a NYer. They take themselves too seriously for me. Food was good, not great, but certainly not bad. Lots of hype about their drinks, but nothing to write home about, although good selection of wine. Had roasted pork for 2 - nice flavor. Best part was dessert."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "I felt as though a stylist might have been spying on us from afar…every inch of The Cypress Room felt perfect. The look/decor, the look/food, the look/staff, the look/cocktails and the service and hospitality were all perfect. I could not have written a better script nor storyboarded a more satisfying meal. Thank you for a moment of luxury and creativity and comfort."

  • ".first time I went food was superb. Second time it was not as stellar. Will give it another try. Maybe it was an off night as my main course arrived cold. Food was tasty however."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "We sat at the bar and enjoyed the tasting menu. The portions are IMMENSE so if you're used to a NYC tasting menu, be warned! The bartender we had was awesome and met some new friends by sitting at the bar. Definitely get one of their "aged" cocktails. Totally worth it. We got the truffle influenced tasting menu and loved it. Only complaint was the portion size. When the pork (3rd course of 4) came out, it was easily enough to feed a family of 6 for one person. The bone marrow is something they are known and definitely their truffle/homemade desserts. Can't go wrong here!!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "I completely enjoyed the entire experience here. It felt like I was on vacation even though I am a native Miamian. Maybe it was the server's use of their mini soft notebooks that look like passports. The quality of glassware was like dining at your rich uncle's apartment. The menu is eclectic and changes periodically. My friend and I are both great cooks with high standards and were pleased. The perfect volume of the jazz standards piped in the match for the cozy ambiance was appreciated. The picture of the ironing of tablecloths between guests went straight onto my facebook."

  • "I have a been a fan of Michael's Genuine since the first day it opened and was very excited to try Cypress room with a friend visiting from Europe. While I have to give credit for the warm and attentive service, the food was a disaster: bland appetizers and uneatable, ridiculously overpriced main courses. Would never go back."

  • "Great food and the best service we've ever encountered. The entire staff was superb."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Of course I loved it, BUT I was thinking it would take the place of Michael's Genuine as my favorite all time place and it didn't. It was very nice, my only complaint was that it feels like a place to have an elegant intimate type meal but the noise level made it hard for a table of four to have a quiet conversation. But we were eating great food with perfect service, so who would ever really "complain"."

  • "Chef Michael has done it again. What a delightful suprise, this throwback to a bygone era pleases on every level. The food was excellent. Our waiter coursed us through a range of appetizers that followed each other perfectly. Our waiter Stephen was truly the best waiter I've encountered in years. The combined effort of the kitchen and front of house made this little hidden gem in the design district well worth another visit. Bravo Chef Michael finally a neighborhood restaurant that's worthy of our city. No South Beach silliness here."

  • "The Cypress Room is a type of restaurant very hard to find in Miami. If you enjoy eating in a small, intimate restaurant with food coming out of the kitchen that has been well thought out, interesting and absolutely plate licking good, then this one is for you. I absolutely LOVED this restaurant and encourage anyone who has enjoyed dining in small, chef owned restaurants in NYC or California to book a table here. Highly Recommend it. Great Wine list."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Menu is small but you will find something you like. Expensive for what they serve. The food was good but nothing I would crave and have to rush back for. The burger is good, they have a large steak for two also good. Atmosphere is cozy, dark, and the restaurant is a good addition to the neighborhood. Parking is really easy as well"

  • "I ordered the cote de boeuf the outside was dry as a bone the middle was medium rare but was not hot but after waiting 40 minutes for the steak there is no time to send it back.it would help if it was prime grade beef I asked the waiter twice and both times he told me it was grass fed beef and that it was very good but I took it as not being prime and it wasn't. the bread and butter was very good and so was the service but the reason I went was the boeuf and I left disappointed i frequent Michaels genuine food and harrys pizzeria which is why I wanted to try the cypress room .I don't mind paying extra for quality but I do mind when I pay for it and don't receive it"
