We had a large party that they accommodated with trouble. Food was delicious and in larger than average portions from a vast menu. Our server hustled and we all received our food as ordered. This is a neighborhood gem we will visit again-wish it were warm enough to sit on the patio!
This is a favorite spot of my and my husbands. Nice atmosphere, diverse menu and nice wine and drink selection. Went with my cousin recently and all was great. Was a decent crowd for a Friday, beautiful weather so we sat on the patio. Live music started around 8. Outdoor patio is lovely. They have a mix of wood and Wrought iron seating. The iron is a bit uncomfortable, although they added seat cushions which helps. The menu changes have been great. A lot of variety for apps and meals, love the mix of Italian and Greek cuisine, and the brick oven pizza is awesome. Fig and goat cheese is my favorite. We shared the dip trio, the Eggplant crisps, and my husband and I had Gyro platters while the others had pizzas. Nice dessert selection although we were too full. My only comment was that the waiter was overly attentive in the beginning when we got there and we felt like he was rushing us. We were catching up, choosing drinks and looking at the large menu and we had to ask him to come back several times. Then later on in the meal, we had to ask him three times to bring back the drink menu as he kept forgetting. He was Just inconsistent. Overall Great place!
Service was a bit odd, we had two waitresses and the communication between the both was lacking. We also wanted to sit outside due to a band that would be playing soon and they couldn't sit us outside due to lack of busboys even though there was plenty of tables. After we sat inside basiaclly every person that came in after us sat outside, it was disappointing. Other than those two issues the food was good and the drinks as well.
We love Cypress! Great food, great service and so close to our home. It will be our new go to place!
The food was good, the waiter was attentive and friendly, and the outdoor patio was delightful.
a neighbor hood restaurant, good food, so,so service, very noisy.
Friendly place, we ate outdoor and had a very pleasant experience. Menu was very nice and the meal I had was very good. Great wine list and a friendly staff.
We loved the brick oven pizzas the clams casino pizza Was our favorite. I can’t wait to go back again!!
Horrible ambience, poor food prep, not worth your time
Mother's Day dinner at Cypress was lovely. The service was a little.slow but we were not in any rush. The atmosphere was beautiful and the restaurant was clean. I don't love fixed menus but the options appealed to everyone and our meals were delicious. I have dined here before and their expansive menu is impressive. We will definitely be coming back again.
A little bland and the entrees were very dried out. Other diners seemed to all order pizza so maybe that's where it's at. Service was good!
we ate at Cypress for our wedding anniversary. we had a great waitress, Kayla, and everyone was very friendly and attentive. the food was great and we were given a complimentary dessert with a special presentation for our anniversary. it was a lovely evening.
We were extremely disappointed with our service and our food. We were upstairs and basically forgotten about. The fish tacos had no taste, my margherita wood fired pizza was just a plain pizza with way too much salt, and even the soda from the fountain was flat. On the plus side, the place is decorated nicely and has a nice outdoor area to sit. We were just disappointed with the food and the service.
It was awesome!! Our group of 20 were warmly greeted. Our server was atrentive and willing to cater to all our requests. The food was simply so delicious!!
It’s great to have Cypress in our neighborhood. We all left thinking when can we go back. Highly recommend!!
The wait staff and the food were excellent but with bare floors, the noise level was extremely loud.
The service was beyond terrible; food not so good - would not go back!
Sorry but I cant recommend this restaurant. It was my second time here and last. They try but are very unorganized. The food is mediocre and over priced. Drinks are ok. Pizza is likely the best but very small pie fir the price. 12.00 would be good. 17/18.00 is crazy for a 14inch pie. I will say staff is friendly..
The service was slow and terrible. The food was not worth the price at all. (Appetizers are better than the entrees). We never got our second round of drinks from the bar. Bill was high for the quality of food and service level. Not going back.
Very friendly owners and staff. They do all they can to make you feel at home
Excellent food, great ambiance, great service. During the meal, the owner stopped by to make sure everything was wonderful. Great place for dinner or lunch! I will be back!
Lovely renovations, service was very slow. Food was good, wish it arrived in a more timely fashion.
I have always loved this restaurant through its several iterations, but it is now way too noisy. I will still come there, but wish you hadn’t removed the carpets and the partition in front of the bar.
Friendly nice atmosphere however they are in no rush! If your not in a hurry it’s great!
First time we been to Cypress Tavern. The food was good. I had a steak and the misses had Sheperd's Pie. Both were made very well, big portions and priced very reasonably. I would say less expensive than a typical resturant. We also hit happy hour so our drinks were a couple dollars off which was nice. We will definetly go back again.
Amazing pizza and the best chicken Milanese.
Went to see friends band and decided to have dinner first! Great decision, great food and great service!
This place has gone downhill. They changed it to be more of a Tavern and the quality of the food significantly decreased.
Food was average at best, service was not good. Way overpriced for what you get.
Sat outdoors which was really nice was a beautiful cool evening however a bit buggy . Food was OK Drinks were just OK. Do not order the Sangria was the worst ever. Service was OK. It was just an OK restaurant. It was crowded so maybe others will enjoy it. I did not.
I cannot provide a review. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were surprised to find it closed. This was very disappointing. It also suggests that OpenTable should have not have enabled a reservation to be made at this restaurant. We drove an hour from home to get there. I have never had this type of experience previously with OpenTable.
We had a nice dinner for Mothers Day with 6 people. Everyone was happy with their food and the waitress was pleasant and attentive. Good Greek food selection and very ample quantities.
We ate on a Saturday early dinner. One of two tables in the restaurant and the service was SLOW. Took a while to get our drinks our app order and our dinner. The app was forgotten and came out 5 minutes before the entrees. Food was prepared well. But again service was very slow for only having two tables in the dinning room.
Service was great, but some of the food just didn't live up to our expectations for the price. The food there looks great, no doubt about it, but don't let good looking presentation deceive you. Every entree had some one thing wrong with it that just led to a disappointing meal. Too much butter in one, too well done on another, too bland on another. It could be a five star contender if they could just get the recipes exactly right. The starter bread strips with spread they give you at the start are very delicious but please, never ever serve stale rolls along with them. That's just a big turnoff for us from the start. Fresh bread and rolls daily please! The Cypress eggplant chips and spread were a big hit as were most of the appetizers. The appetizers were definitely prepared much better then the entrees were. Seems like some of the desserts were not homemade and weren't very good at all, ask first if they are made in house to get something fresh. The Baklava was as hard as a rock, it could not possibly have been made that day.
Variety of choices, great quality food
Waitress tried hard, but did not know the menu. Chef would not debone the whole branzino special sowe all ordered lamb shank special. Was just ok. Didn't taste feshly prepared as it was tough and not heated through.. Baklava for dessert was dry and probably the worst I have ever had.. Greek food was disappointing.. maybe bar food is better?
Ambience and noise level were better after Happy Hour crowd left around 6:30. Service was very attentive, and not intrusive. Food was quite good, but not real Greek, despite name. Would recommend.
Very good food and service, but bar area got noisy. Upstairs might have been better seating.
The service was extremely horrible it took forever for our order to be placed and then forever for order to be cooked I would never recommend this resturant to anyone. Very disappointed
The inside is modern, the bar area and the dining area are cozy. Stepping outside to eat The road traffic behind the restaurant fades away in the distance. The hostess seated us without giving us menus, the waitress came by within five minutes asking for a drink order when we had not been given a menu yet. Apparently this is a standing rule at this restaurant that the hostess does not bring menus when first seated. The food came out in a timely, not rushed, manner. It was excellent!! By the waitress service was good, the busboy service not so great. Several occasions busboys would pass our table with obvious empty plates stacked and pushed to the other end of the table away from us and still no one had cleared our plates. Very friendly service. In the outside seating area a live band plays every Thursday night. They use microphones and amplifiers when really the space is so small it is not necessary, which makes the outdoor seating area quite loud, too loud to get a conversation in over a nice dinner. The good thing however is the band does not start to play until 8 PM at night, so if you are in the mood for a night out on a nice romantic date, this is the place to go but make sure you go before 8 PM
Overall we will definitely be visiting this place again
This is what you'd call a mixed review. My wife and I took our two daughters, 23 and 13, with us to dinner at about 6 pm on a Saturday. Quick take: my wife and I both liked our dishes-- she had pasta with seafood, I had a fish. Both were prepared quite well, good original recipes I thought, but not radical. Good food. My older daughter also got pasta with seafood (I think clams) and she did not like the taste of her clams. My younger daughter simply didn't like the menu and refused to order anything.
The waitress was midrange in quality; had to wait too long for her to ask if there was anything we'd like. She seemed to have too many guests to serve, considering how often we saw her.
The time it took to get our entrees was just approaching complaint level when the food arrived, not very promptly for a 6 pm dinner, but it was hot on arrival.
To sum up, on the food itself, 66% thumbs up, 33% thumbs down.
Service, acceptable if not great.
Prices, in my humble opinion were as high as Manhattan, but that's just how it is in Northern NJ these days. About $129 for three dinners and three glasses of wine before tip. (Admittedly there was one $18 shrimp cocktail in there too.)
