Always a top-shelf experience. Great food and service with wait staff that was great at pairing food and wine. Absolutely recommended!
Everything about our dinner was spot on. The food, the service, etc. The only small complaint is that the charges for alcohol are getting more like Miami and not Tallahassee.
Amazing - top to bottom! The oysters and biscuits appetizer is off the charts!
Fantastic dinner and great service. Relaxed atmosphere. Met friends for dinner; everyone ordered something different and everyone loved it. Great from appetizers to dessert.
The past four years my fiancé and I have made Cypress our birthday dinner tradition, we also go for other occasions. This year we contemplated trying one of the many new restaurants in the area, however, we decided to stick to our tradition because it’s always been a special treat for us. However, this past time I was a bit disappointed and truthfully wish we had tried one of those new restaurants. Typically Cypress makes birthday celebrations special but this time they failed to recognize though I made note of it on the reservation — it’s a small mishap but again this is what makes dining there for birthdays extra special. Also, the service was a bit subpar compared to what is normally is. As always, the food was superb, just wish the overall experience was on the same level.
Benita did a great job. She was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was excellent.
Fabulous food, so fresh and elegant atmosphere
My husband and I had a lovely time at Cypress for his birthday dinner. This was our first time at the restaurant and we were very surprised at how spacious it was inside. We were immediately greeted and shown to our table which was decorated with confetti! A lovely little gesture to start our evening.
Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. She was attentive but didn't hover, which we really appreciate. She suggested a few cocktails off the drink menu which turned out to be great.
The food was very good. We started with the Grouper Cheeks and Pan Fried Quail "little dishes". The grouper cheeks were tender and fried perfectly. The quail was cooked equally as well and came on a tasty bed of root vegetables with a delicious glaze or sauce. I will say that while the grouper was a nice size portion, the quail was definitely a little "little dish".
For our entrees, my husband ordered the grouper paella and I tried the hanger steak. We were both very happy with the cook on our fish and steak (perfect medium) and the overall dishes. However, they were jussst toeing the line of being oversalted. If 5 is perfectly seasoned and 10 is oversalted, our entrees were maybe a 7 (perhaps an 8 for his fish). We both much prefer aggressively seasoned food over bland food and we still enjoyed our meals, so we didn't see a reason to complain.
In all, we had a lovely time for our first visit. Next time, we will try to save room for dessert!
Quiet, elegant and welcoming. Outstanding service by our attendant. Highly suggest the duck! The Cote D'Rhone GSM wine bottle, nice pairing and very good value. Don't forget the dessert sampler with three small cakes and a paired ice cream...but really for three or four at the table...you'll have just enough room for a bit after a memorable and delicious duck breast dinner. Happy dining...this place is all elegance (you may wear your jeans). Kudos to the Chef for all the allergy accommodations!
We went on Valentine's day and had the 5 course prix fix. We had cocktails at the bar which are always exciting and tasty. The food was amazing. All 5 courses were perfectly prepared and delicious.
Bruno was an amazing chef complimented by a great staff of servers, busboys, and employees
The food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was clean and decorated very nicely. The complementary valet at the front of the restaurant was also very nice and helpful. The only complaint I have is that the service was very slow. It took almost 30 minutes for some of us to get our drinks. However, I understand it was a busy Saturday evening, and perhaps they were understaffed.
The service was courteous and attentive. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. One of us ordered the paella, enjoyed it and would order it again. I ordered the bouillabaisse and it was chock full of seafood and delicious. Convenient valet parking.
Delicious meal and excellent service. They were proactive about dietary restrictions, which was important because my husband overlooked the beure blanc in the menu description of his main course selection.
Drinks were perfect, food was very good and atmosphere was good. Would recommend to friends and family.
Our 81 year old Mom wanted to celebrate her birthday at your restaurant. We all enjoyed our tasty dinner and desserts. Mom was given extra attention by our server Hanna who we shared about the special day. Mom phoned all her siblings and shared how wonderful the food, atmosphere, and service was. We will be back for sure.
Had a business dinner at Cypress Restaurant a few nights ago. Asked for a quiet table against wall or window. Exactly what I got and it was clear they received and honored my request. Service was very good on this very busy night. Food was excellent. Grouper cheeks were delicious but a bit skimpy for the price. Seafood Paella was not your typical paella but was very good but again skimpy with the shrimp, scallop and clam (one of each) for the price. Wine list could use some lower priced but quality wines. Our server was delightful. I would go back!
Wonderful menu, wine list and service. So glad this Tallahassee gem is still rocking and rolling!
Menu was fresh and unique. Dishes were cooked perfectly. Service was good but not overbearing.
Great food. The pork chop was wonderful. Great service!
Great food great wine.
Very nice ambience the food was OK dessert pastry was very hard I wasn’t impressed
We were celebrating our Anniversary. As usual at Cypress service was understated but provided enough attention. Our server recommended the Hanger Steak which was amazing. We look forward to a return trip in the near future.
The food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive.
The food and service were outstanding.. the atmosphere was weird.. so quiet, no background music it was like dinning in a library.. I found their specialty drinks to be really sweet and too busy with too many ingredients that in my opinion don't pair well together. They are trying too hard on the craft cocktails.. less is more. The spirit should speak for itself.. ingredients should elevate the spirit not cover it up. Good wine selection. As well as local craft beers.. I would try it again but my advice to management is to make sure the atmosphere has background music the lighting needs to come down a bit in the bar area... it was uncomfortably quiet.
We went for New Years Eve dinner and were very impressed by the quality and creativity of the 5 course dinner served. Look forward to going back for dinner again soon!
Excellent service & fabulous food!
Was so glad they have valet service as the parking lot was full. Valet was prompt coming and going. Seated immediately. Gracious service- not rushed although the place was packed. Excellent meal. Great evening with friends.
Great food. Service was a little slow. But good food as slways
The service was impeccable!! The food absolutely divine. Quaint and courteous all rolled up for a great evening.
Everything was excellent! Highly recommend!
Very slow - food alright, not great.
Cypress is a hidden gem in Tallahassee. The food was unique and outstanding. Our table staff was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the food and the wines. Cannot wait to go back!
Excellent as always. Had the mushroom soup and flank steak. Service could have been a bit more attentive but not bad.
Always excellent food!
15 minutes before a server came. We asked for bread twice after it was offered. Drinks took quite some
Time to arrive. Seemed to need
More servers. Food very salty.
Lovely evening - delicious from appetizers to entrees to dessert. Relaxing environment and friendly service. Will make Cypress a regular when visiting Tallahassee.
AMAZING!! The staff, service, food quality and portions were second to none! The restaurant was welcoming and the decor was absolutely perfect..We are so happy to have found this gem and we will definitely make it a regular stop whenever we are in Tallahassee.
21stbnirthday celebration for my niece. It was just perfect! The food was delicious, our server was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a bottle of champagne. All in all just a very lovely evening!
as always, I took a group of business associates to Cypress for dinner and it did not disappoint. Service was very good and was the food. Only mild complaint is that the server recommended a very nice Cab (O'Shaugnessy) with a price point about $50 more than the highest priced wine on the menu and failed to mention the price. Not a big deal as the prices at this restaurant are very fair but it was inappropriate not to mention the disparity in pricing. But, overall, great experience and I will return soon!
