My wife and I met a couple at this restaurant for dinner. Two people ordered the buffalo burger, one ordered the beef tenderloin and I ordered the divers sea scallops. I also ordered a Caesar salad. For dessert, the other couple ordered the creme brulee'; I ordered 3 macadamia nut cookies. The dressing on the caesar salad was not traditional and disappointing. There were two anchovies on top which most people hate. I like them. The scallops were underwhelming. For $33, I expected more than three small scallops that were blackened. The seasoning was fine, but most sea scallops I have had were much bigger than these little things. Since the chef can't always control the size of shellfish, 3 more should have been added to the dish. The atmosphere is the best thing going for this place. We will probably not return since there are so many other restaurants to chose from.

We met some new couple friends there for dinner and it was an excellent choice. The atmosphere is lovely, the noise level is low, so we were able to easily chat without having to yell over any music or other customer chatter. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive to our needs. The food was absolutely delicious. All four of our dishes were excellently prepared and the limoncella sorbet and multi-layer sugar cake for dessert were melt-in-your mouth delicious. Both desserts had an explosion of flavor yet were light and not heavy. The perfect end to a perfect meal. We definitely plan to become regular customers.

We had a table for 10 on Saturday at noon. Great food. Very good service for such a large party. My only comment would be to have more bunch items on the menu. Overall very good.

Often you wait person can make or break a meal. Jason did an excellent job, easy to talk with, very knowledgeable and obviously enjoys what what he does. Thanks for a very nice evening!

Service was outstinding, flavor very good, quality of meat sub standard, when you pay $30.00 to $40.00 per steak you would expect no grizzle ( unable to chew )

We always enjoy having special staff lunches there, but it is difficult to discuss too much business due to noise level. We still go back every year. :)

Have been to this restaurant several times. Had to take a break because it was so inconsistent. Saturday proved again what I mean. Had the lamb chops. So salty I really couldn’t finish one! Told our awesome waitress and she sent one of the chefs over. He said they have a heavy hand on salt. Remade them for me and they were better. Going to give thus place a break again. They need to put that salt shaker away!!

Reservation request of table by window ignored. Several open when we arrived. Food average at best and not anywhere close to what the prices would mandate. Not going back.

The food is consistently good. The hummus appetizer is delicious. The fresh veggies are perfect for dipping in the hummus. My husband had the grilled tuna with farro and quinoa , which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had the vegetarian crispy eggplant. Cypress has well prepared salads with champagne vinaigrette. Another bright spot is the iced tea. It is fresh, clear and very tasty. The expresso coffee is also fresh and hot as well as reasonably priced. This is a good neighborhood eatery for our relatively small town. We are fortunate to have it near bye!

I go here at least 6 times a year and have never been disappointed. Two nights ago I went and the chef's special was smoked prime rib. It was incredible: tender, thin but crispy crust, awesome rub, and somehow managed to make it medium rare. I will be dining there more frequently and especially on smoked prime rib night (Thursdays).

We have eaten at the Cypress Grill before, this time was a true disappointment, the grilled strip steak lunch was tough, the service was not up to par. Most disappointing. Will not return for lunch.

I met a good friend there. It was in between where we were. We’d been before a good while back. It was the same lovely place. Had Chicken Pot Pie and enjoyed it. Could have used a bit more seasoning. The noise level was pretty high as it was the noon hour. But the environment is great and the service good.

We usually love this place, but out last visit was just ..."off". To start, we had reservations, however the front staff seemed confused between us and some other folks beside us. They said as much to us on the way to our table...that it had been a confusing day between those who had reservations and those who were walk-ins. From there, we spotted an empty small table right by a window and said that we'd like to sit there if possible. An abrupt but apologetic "no" was the result, and we didn't think much of it until later.

About ten minutes after, another couple asked from their table which they didn't prefer, if they could sit there instead.. "Sure!" was the response...and they were quickly moved over...once again, just odd and off.

Combine that with a seperate server greeting us and saying our server would be right with us... thirty minutes after we'd already been there, just ...off. Lastly, our order taking much longer than normal to be served...left us saying, "huh...not our usual awesome experience".

Hopefully not a trend, and just a glitch for an otherwise great restaurant...

Food was great. With a party of 9, 2 of our meals did not arrive with the other 7. It took at least 10 minutes for theirs to arrive, then a steak had to be sent back because it was ordered medium and came out rare. Otherwise, everything we usually experience here!

Great service and ambiance. Loved out seating. I was disappointed in the Father's Day menu.
I was expecting a better choice. I would have like to see the actual menu of what was being served before I booked so I could have gone to a different rest. I was expecting posted brunch menu or a buffet. Now I know. This is still a great place to dine.
