The family and I were a little late for our reservation, but our table was still waiting. The everything was EXCELLENT! Granted, you get what you pay for. But I was expecting a price, and we definitely got what I paid! Great place!

Absolutely amazing! The food was delicious and excellent value for money. My mother and father and law ordered the steaks and they were HUGE - larger than any steak we would normally get at a typical steak house! The flavor combinations of each dish was just out of this world! I am a picky eater, so finding something that I was happy to eat was not difficult at all - the options were endless!! Every bite just melted in our mouths - just delicious!!! Hats off to the chefs. The atmosphere is very intimate and cozy and a conversation can be held and heard by all in the group - AMAZING!! Excellent place to go if you are wanting to get your tastebuds tantalized and your stomach filled!! Will definitely be back to this little gem.

Food was amazing however I dont know if their AC was broke but we were sweating as we were eating dinner. They were out of scallops so I was bummed about that but got the hanger steak and was not disappointed.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Cypress. The food was excellent. I have read a few comments about Cypress that said the service wasn't up to the standard of the food. Our server, Andrew, was polite, prompt, attentive, and helpful. We enjoy the ambience at Cypress but on this evening the music was a bit loud and not to our taste. That is a minor detail and certainly didn't impact our evening.

The food quality, preparation and taste was superb. Not one complaint. Deserves a better location/ambience to go with the food. Nothing worth complaining about regarding the atmosphere, just spare and dark. I would go back as the service was excellent. Overall, pricey but good.

Simply superb! Excellent menu with interesting and creative options, paired with excellent serving staff who are passionate and knowledgeable about the menu, and a hip and fresh ambiance. Full meal service is available from the bar - and the bar tender was very happy to make mocktails that were more interesting than just a mix of fruit juice. Outstanding! Do yourself a favour and enjoy a meal here. You won't regret it!

We had a fabulous 5 course dinner with wine pairings they called “Honoring the Local Grower”. Every coarse was quietly special. Every pairing felt right. Sommelier Adam was knowledgeable and engaging. Wish this restaurant were in Chicago! Great first taste of Tallahassee!

Cypress is still one of my favorite restaurants in this area. They were out of some of their wines. My entree (the special for the evening) was average.

I was just underwhelmed by my whole experience here. There was a live band that was pretty loud even in the back corner of the restaurant where we were seated that did not match the vibe of the restaurant. The cocktails were very good and everyone at the table enjoyed all of there drinks, the best I've had in Tallahassee so far. Our server was very polite, knowledgeable and attentive. What really bothered me was the food. We were one of the first parties in the restaurant at 6:45 and we did not receive our entrees until nearly an hour after we ordered them. This would be forgivable, but my steak had clearly been sitting for a considerable amount of time when I got it and another patron's potatoes were essentially raw. At $30-$40 and entree I think the standards should be higher. Someone at our table got the beet gnocchi and it was very good, easily the best dish at the table, but everything else just wasn't unique or remarkable. I just don't think the cuisine matches the price point.

Had another great meal at Cypress. Took a work colleague for her first time. Had the Red Grouper Paella and my colleague had the vegetarian gnocchi. We both had the mushroom soup. Everything was well prepared, presented and ample portions. There's a reason Cypress has lasted 20 yrs in Tally. Quality wins every time.

We chose Cypress for our 30th Wedding Anniversary dinner. The service by Andrew was excellent, the food was fantastic, from the Grouper Cheeks appetizer to my Deep Divers Scallops entree to my wife's Paella. Andrew was especially helpful in helping my wife choose a good wine. In every way, a great evening!

We arrived at 6 and weren't served until almost 7. My husband's steak was tough, but we had a show to go to and there was barely enough time to have it wrapped up to go, not to mention return it. We used to love Cypress, but now it is overpriced and the service is terrible. We will never go back.
