Extremely nice inside. The decor was stunning. The food was excellent. Service was outstanding. The only thing I found disappointing was the price of the food. As some entree price choices were right on their were others that were to expensive for the type of dish it was. All in all I definitely recommend Cypress Hall. I give it 5 stars.

II made a reservation on-line 2 weeks ahead and specified "special occasion". When we arrived we were brought to a table next to the kitchen, which was unacceptable not only due to the location but more so for the noise level. I have a profound hearing loss and wear 2 hearing aids and I pointed out a table for 4 along the wall that would be helpful to decrease the noise level. The manager was called and she said she was sorry, the other table was for another party of 4 and due for occupancy at the same time as ours.
If the tables were both for 4, I am not quite sure I understand how this would matter.
I can only assume that it would have made little difference to the couples given that table, as they would not have know what had transpired prior to their arrival. To say that this has changed my expectations of your new restaurant, is putting it mildly.
As a resident of New Bern for the past 14 years, I hope this information will help make some needed changes to ensure your success . New Bern is a beautiful area and has certainly been in need of an upscale, beautiful restaurant such as Cyprus Hall.
Thank you for this opportunity to share my thoughts. PS, we were celebrating my 85th Birthday.

Backroom is too loud, they should consider some type of dampeners possibly from the ceiling, possibly on the floor. Food was not quite as good as I was hoping.

We had dinner here early on a Saturday evening. Nice ambience, very classy environment. We had high hopes for the food but it was average. Duck pizza very dry and salty; scallop dish didn’t really come together in a coherent way. Pork rind pimiento dip small plate was good (but isn’t anything with cheese)? Tasted more like cheddar dip. We’ve decided to give it a couple months and try again...

New Bern's newest upscale dining scene. Lovely bar and menu, a weekly stop for us for wood fired pizza's, charred octopus. Interesting signature drink menu, semi-private room available in the rear for groups. I'll be happy when rood top garden opens upstairs in the back.

Have never had a bad meal here. Favorite items are the duck pizza, memaws cake, hanger steak, and burger. Very nice atmosphere and always very attentive staff. Perfect venue for celebrating a special occasion or hanging with friends. Weeknights usually don't need a reservation but on Friday or Saturday night reservations are a must. While the large plates are around 30 dollars you can get items off small plates and all of their pizzas are good; which are reasonably priced. It seems they rotate the menu but everything always really good.

The service was prompt and efficient and the ambience was casual yet sophisticated. The French Onion soup was one of the best I've ever had and my husband's scallops were perfection. The overall experience was thoroughly enjoyable. It's nice to have a "happening" place in downtown New Bern. Ashley has hit a home run!

This is the most beautiful restaurant, food is outstanding and service was wonderful. I love every dish I have eaten. Pimento cheese in the hot iron skillet with pork skins is to die for.
It is hard to say my favorite. The brisket burger is awesome.
Thankful New Bern has a great place to eat and enjoy company.

I would recommend with an explanation. The whole experience was basically good but I think that they need to knock out a few bugs. So my recommendation would be to wait a couple of months and then try. That's what we decided to do. We will return but we are going to wait a couple of months.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 25th anniversary dinner. The staff met us at the door to assist my husband with his walker, and we were seated at a comfortable table. The waiter was attentive, helpful and pleasant but not over bearing. Our meal was prepared and served at a relaxed pace. The steak tartar pizza was wonderful and different! I enjoyed the flat iron steak and my husband the Chilean Sea Bass. The surroundings are a little loud, but you can easily hear and carry on a conversation at your table. Thank you for a great evening. The carrot cake is divine.

New restaurant open for a few months, done by a respected local restaurateur. Wife and I have been 3 times now and food and service have improved as you would expect in any new restaurant. The setting and ambiance is kind of urban chic, which is scarce around New Bern. Nice well rounded menu, good custom cocktails and overall a pleasant experience. Definitely seems to be on the rise and set to become one of New Bern's nicer high end restaurants.

The new location is very dramatic looking and has much more seating than the old 247 Craven location. Good wine glass list and the waitress offered to let me sample both the Malbec offerings before ordering - very much appreciated and assured me of making the best decision for my palate. My husband's flank steak was beautifully cooked; I tried the pork cheeks with Brussels sprouts and risotto and they were outstanding - very moist and tender meat, the Brussels sprouts flavorful and slightly crispy. Both entrees beautifully arranged. The portions were generous - I had to take a small box back. No room for dessert unfortunately, but we'll definitely return during our next trip to New Bern. Looking forward to visiting this regularly when we relocate to this lovely area!

A bit noisy but great otherwise. Had charred octopus with Brussel sprouts. Flavorful and abundant appetizer. The eggplant involtini main dish was equally flavorful if a bit rich. Other plates in our table were the Margherita pizza and a brisket burger. Eclectic menu. Plan to come back to taste other items.

Cypress Hall or Open Table let me down. Had confirmation of Open Table reservations but Cypress Hall did not. Cypress Hall said they would try to fit me in around 9 (my reservation was at 6). Shame on Cypress Hall for not offering something like "sorry for your inconvenience. Would you mind sitting at the bar with a complimentary drink while we try to fit you in."
