Service and food was just ok. Disappointing part, they only offer one steak and it’s 30 oz. who can eat a 30 oz steak?!

Pork cheeks were way too salty, risotto was okay and Brussels sprouts were too charred and a bit underdone.
Salmon was quite fishy, the hoecake was burned, the amount of vegetable was very skimpy. Neither dish was worth the premium price. We sat opposite the bar and though the booths are quite attractive, unfortunately, are quite uncomfortable. There is a lot of room for improvement.

Cypress Hall had very good food and service, a very lively atmosphere and we will go back. We had octopus, oysters, scallops and a corn soufflé. The scallops and corn soufflé were outstanding. Both the octopus and oysters were a little over done but would have been spectacular if they were cooked correctly. The potatoes and side salad you got with the octopus more than made up for it being over cooked though. The oysters where overwhelmed by the bacon! Decent and varied craft beer selection. Place was very welcoming and bright and very busy. Excellent and responsive servers. Looking forward to a lunch menu!

Overall, great new place in New Bern with outstanding food. The only thing I didn't like was the customer service from the hostess station. I made early reservations on Open Table for 5:15pm, specifically to avoid bar seating. We arrived on time and were assigned a table in the bar. When I explained that I made reservations that early to avoid sitting in the bar, the hostess told me I shouldn't have used Open Table. She did however find us a dining room seat, but said we had to be finished in an hour and 45 minutes due to a follow-on reservation. I said that would largely depend on how quickly we could be served. She seemed agitated and again said I shouldn't have used Open Table to book reservations.

Once seated, the service and food was great. I had the braised pork cheeks and my wife the margarita pizza. Both were outstanding and our waitress was on top of everything. We'll definitely be back, but I guess I'll be more diligent on how I make reservations. Hopefully the management will provide more guidance and training for the hostesses.

Cypress Hall is a great addition to the downtown dining scene in New Bern. Very hip decor; you feel like you are in a metropolitan area. The food was great and service was very good. Try it!!

Wonderful choices on your menu. The octopus was perfect. The brussels sprouts were excellent and they are not always prepared correctly. Very comfortable and the ambiance was perfect. Crowd noise could be softened a bit otherwise, most enjoyable. We will be coming back.

The restaurant is still new and needs to work out some kinks. Menu was diverse however didn't have the WOW factor we were hoping for. Food just okay, not mind blowing. We have high hopes that this will improve. Atmosphere and staff were terrific!!

Great atmosphere, good food, great service. A new bright spot in the New Bern downtown district. Really nice ambience. The "Perfect Manhattan" is just that.

Cypress Hall had only been open for 8 days when we went for date night, they were still working out a few kinks (wobbly tables was the only one I witnessed). The place is beautiful and the food is delicious. The service was also top notch! We will definitely be going back.
