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 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.

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!

I chose Cypress restaurant because I had never been and because I was celebrating my birthday. The parking wasn't the best but their was complimentary valet..The food took over an hr to come out for my party of seven and it was bland..The ambiance and service was okay. Waitress forgot to bring my drink.

Nice atmosphere. Servers were very nice, however it took an extraordinarily long time for our food (15 mins for wine and 30 mins for appetizers). Steak was good. Shrimp were very small ( only 3 on the plate) and exceptionally salty.
Not a great value for the cost.

Food was incredible! The hanger steak and duck breast were prepared perfectly. Portion size was nice and the service was friendly. Everyone knew we were there for our anniversary and made sure to congratulate us. The chef even brought us a on the house appetizer.

Cypress never fails to delivery excellent service by the wait staff, superb food with perfect presentation. The hostess does need a refresher course on cheerful greeting. Her greeting line was “Good evening, do you have a reservation?” She never smiled or was welcoming in any interaction we had with her. We had a reservation but her greeting and sour expression were a bit a turn off upon entering the restaurant.

In TLH for business and found this spot. Very nice menu and bar selections. Portions are good sized and you won't go away hungry. We ordered the cheese plate (and although we think they forgot to send it out) it was one of the best I have had in a long time. Good temp on the cheeses and great choices. Steak was cooked perfectly and my companion ordered the Paella which was also quite good. So other than the 20 min delay for a cheese plate it was very good overall. Would return.

From our hostess, Cassandra to our waitress, Hannah and even the other Hannah, our service was outstanding! Our food was delicious as were our cocktails and wine! We were blessed to have a gift card from our kids which helped this retired couple to enjoy an awesome evening!

Another outstanding meal. Had the boullibase as a starter and the flank steak main. Both perfectly prepared and full of flavors and depth. You can’t beat Cypress for consistency or quality.
