Everything was wonderful including the food, the service, and the cocktails. The atmosphere is perfect for a date. We had the burgers and they were some of the best we have ever tried. We are thrilled to have a restaurant like this in New Bern.

My husband and I went for our Anniversary and it was amazing. We sat in the back room by ourselves which was very special. For our first experience there it was definitely worth remembering. We will be returning!

Our waitress, Tiffany, was great! Answered all of our menu questions! Our table was positioned such that we could see the bartenders. We enjoyed watching the bartenders "smoking" a drink. We must come back for a "smoked" drink!

Excellent dining experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. We had reservations and walked directly to our table without wait. Our server (Mel) seemed very happy that we’d come and she knew the menu from top to bottom. She suggested both drinks and entrees that proved to be excellent. The food was absolutely top notch. Yes..we will be back and we will highly recommend your restaurant to our friends.

The restaurant is gorgeous, and I would recommend it for pre-dinner drinks at the bar. Our food was hit and miss. My husband had the brisket burger, medium, with frites. His dinner was excellent. I had what was described as lamb and risotto balls and the brussels sprouts. There maybe were a couple of strings of lamb mixed in with rice. The sprouts were cooked perfectly, but they were over-sauced. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate lava cake. Traditionally, this has a gooey "lava" core. The cake was dry all the way through. I will likely be back for lunch or drinks, but I'll not wager a babysitter night out for dinner until I hear the food has improved.

Mel is the best waitress ever!!!!!!! Don’t ever let her go. The food is wonderful, some very different things on the menu which is great. The pizza was very flavorful, but could have been crispier. The back dining room is noisy, but we are getting old👵🏻😁. Having said all that, we love it, will certainly be back. We’re local, yay!!!

Loved sitting in booths next to bar. Great bartender. Tiffany was efficient server, stopping by enough without hovering. Warm Ceasar Salad was incredible. Being able to share large and small plates is the best. Will be visiting often.

Ambiance and service were excellent. Most dishes excelled, but a couple were wanting. Roasted beet salad failed to have a roasted flavor. Oysters were good, but were a bit dry and flavor of the oyster was lost under the topping. Burger was the highlight of the meal and the duck pizza was outstanding. Warm Caesar was an excellent appetizer. Looking forward to our next evening and an opportunity to try some of the other interesting offerings.

We had another awesome dinner at Cypress Hall! The menu has changed a little, but everything we tried was delicious. The new Caesar salad with shaved Brussel sprouts was outstanding. Even though we dined early, the place was packed. Reservations are a must! We'll be back.

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...
