Food was adequate to good, but from the beginning, our primary server (Christina) was somewhere between lukewarm and cold in her personality and approach. Fortunately, some of her teammates were more ingratiating.

This restaurant has potential and a nice setting, but there are other restaurants in the city that we would choose before coming back, if ever, to this one.

Our dinner this past Saturday night was really special due to the triumvirate of great food, great service, and great atmosphere.
We have found that instead of driving into San Antonio for a great dining experience one only need make a quick reservation online that takes a few minutes and save the time and energy for a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience here in Boerne. You will not be disappointed in either your choice of your appetizers or main course that is even made better by the friendly, knowledgeable, and caring staff. They have a really wide choice of wines as way to kick start your evening or any other drink of your choice you may desire to enjoy. I cannot think of a better choice for not only a dining experience for you but for a night that you can relax and know you are in for a special evening that checks all your boxes for great tasting food, service centered on your needs, and atmosphere of a bygone era that creates an overall experience that is special and Boerne Texas should be incredibly proud to have as part of our community!

Always like Cypress Grille, this night the food was extra ordinarily good or I was real hungry, I had the seasoned prime rib and my friend had the quail. Both were very good, the white asparagus was a little tough but had a good flavor. The wait staff was wonderful.

Really enjoyed our evening meal. Our server was very good at her job and was very happy in her job...unusual for my experiences at some restaurants where wait staff hate their job. She was upbeat and in good spirits, which made the evening upbeat and enjoyable. Food is excellent. Never disappoints. Wine Wednesday's the wine is 40% off a bottle...such a deal!! Highly recommend !

Our food overall was very good, but the steak my friend ordered was not eatable. The manager replaced his steak with medallions. Too bad. My black bean and corn soup was delicious along with a twice baked potato. Very nice establishment whether your there with family, friends or a romantic evening. I will return.

Disappointing. We have eaten at the Cypress Grill since it first opened. It has always served good food at a higher price, but a refreshing oasis from Tex-Mex and chain restaurants.

Well, this time it was awful. Same ambiance, but slow service, very slow meal preparation, and under-cooked, badly-spiced chicken dinner, all at a price that is on a par with a good restaurant in Austin.

Did we just “draw the short straw” last night? Were they distracted with some high-roller table? Maybe this is emblematic of the boom-town atmosphere in Boerne. Regardless, we are not rich, and dinner out is something that is reserved for once every few months. Our preference is to move on, let this restaurant cater to people with lots of money, no taste, and an appetite for prime rib, and $300 dollar wine.

My husband and I are from San Antonio and had an early dinner at Cypress Grille prior to attending a concert at Cave Without A Name near Boerne. We had never been to the Cypress Grille before and were very pleased with it. Our food was delicious, not terribly expensive, and the menu options were unique. Our servers, Alex and Kale, were very professional--friendly but not intrusive, efficient, and gave us good information about the menu items. We will definitely be back.

I have never had a bad meal at Cypress Grille, and this one did not disappoint, either! Four people, four different entrees, and not a bad one in the bunch! I can't stop eating the gouda -stuffed pork chop, and rarely deviate from that entrée. This time I added the twice-baked potato and it was also excellent. Other people had the scallops, the fish special and the pork shank. Not a complaint in the group.

If I did have a complaint, it would be that the salads are just too big.

Our server, Christina, was great, too. Attentive, but not overwhelming. Very pleasant with a great sense of humor.

Loved it all!

We were in Boerne for a golf getaway with another couple. The Cypress Grille was a perfect finale to our trip! The staff was extremely attentive and our waiter, Destiny, had some really good suggestions as to what to try. The chef knew how to prepare everything perfectly from tuna to lamb and steaks, everything was cooked to perfection. If I ever get back to town, I'm heading back!

The hostess and servers were very polite and attentive. The server was patient in taking an order that included many restrictions/changes because of dietary constraints of one in my party.
I would've liked better lighting so I could see the menu easier. We sat in a booth by the back wall and it was really dark in there considering that it was 11:30 am!
My steak dish was flavorful, but the meat had a few slices of fatty meat that really wasn't edible. (And I'm not afraid of fat).
It is a dependable spot for good food and reasonably priced for a nice lunch.

We found this Boerne restaurant to be worth a trip. It's well-appointed, comfortable and while not exactly cozy, it was not too loud or cramped on a busy Saturday night. Service was exceptional. Our waitress was attentive and offered us useful information about our choices. That was especially helpful because the menu is extensive and there were probably a half-dozen entrees or more that sounded equally tasty. We shared the chef's appetizer of the day, a moo shu pork-like wrap on a bed of thin-sliced cured meat. My husband had the posole with crab, scallops, clams and shrimp in a light tomatillo broth. I had the blackened sea scallops which came with andouille sausage and a spicy sweet potato hash. For dessert, we had a vanilla been creme brule and a warm chocolate cake with house-made vanilla bean ice cream. The restaurant doesn't have a full bar but the wine list is extensive and it has a small but excellent selection of beers, including some outstanding ones on tap. The food portions were perfect. Every dish was complex and imaginative. Overall, everything was top-notch. We'll be back.

Locally owned and shines well on many items. All are good. Some better than others.
Don't be timid, ask the server or the duty chef, or even the owner if he's around. Especially if its your first visit. All the locals are found of this place and its proprietor. Some items are maybe a little too "fancy" for my simple tastes, but I've never been disappointed. The lamb is excellent. Ribeye a winner. All fish entrees. Appetizers all good. I actually wish Paul would conjure up a meat loaf or something like that, and peach cobbler. Would love to see his treatment on those. But there are so many items we have not yet tried, that we will.

The food was excellent, the service was very attentive BUT the noise level was very high. My husband and I had to speak to each other at top volume. No TV, no music - just people who do not realize other people do not want to hear their conversation.

On the negative side. I wanted to eat there during restaurant week. I wanted to find out what the menu for that would be, Their phone number only permits interaction with a computer; instructions how to make a reservation. When we arrived and saw the special menu, it was a great disappointment. If I had known what was on that menu, we would not have driven the 40 miles. We ordered from the regular menu. Lunch cost $45.00 for 2 entrees, an appetizer and 2 iced teas. This is at the very top of our budget. The estimated $100.00 for dinner for 2 will preclude our eating that meal there.

However, as previously wen, the food was excellent and we will eat lunch there again.

We come back to the Cypress Grill whenever we are in the area. It is a casual and relaxing venue with great food and great service. Warm atmosphere from the beginning with personable wait staff. The menu has a good variety and some unusual items on it (like wild game). Prepared very well. A large wine list and a full bar will match your thirst for the meal.

Can't beat the customer service there. We all agreed that it was worth a return trip since the food was outstanding with service to match.

Love the cypress grille and are devoted fans. Eggplant entree is wonderful and the seared tuna was yummy too. Our service was lacking this past visit. Received our entrees before our salads so we called the salads off. Granted we were coming in late that evening but felt a bit ignored, especially considering all the previous visits before with excellent service. Think it was an aberration.
