Cyrano's is less bustling than its neighbors to the west, and has more of a country feeling. It is lovely to sip wine and watch the boats pass on the river.

The food was very good and the location can't be beat on a warm summer night. The tables are right on the riverfront and we watched kayakers and boats float past as we dined. And joggers, bikers, and walkers streamed past on the riverwalk pathway, making this a terrific people-watching site as well.

Describing this place as a glorified Food Truck would be a compliment. It is on the River Walk. Tables & chairs looked like the ones we put in the trash four years ago. Garden like setting is a weed bed overlooking the river. Welcome sign says "seat yourself". Waitstaff questioned "reservation"? The one table that was near the river had a variety of tables & chairs stacked around it. I can't imagine the copy writer's love life after the "romantic setting " description. Better description would be a gathering spot, with bar service, before your Tour Boat departure.
Best thing about this place is the copy writing skills of the person who penned the description . Sad that the only truth was the River Walk location.

It's fun to sit on the river's edge with a glass of wine watching boats go by and feeling like you're in Paris.
