Mediterranean
A casual but upscale authentic neighborhood Mediterranean Bar & Grill in Baltimore. Featuring an all hand-made in-house simplified menu, we bring small plates crafted by the passion of our chef, creating everything from the home-made pita dough down to hand crafted dressings that come with all of the goodies. These are the recipes of our grandmothers. Our clean-eating menu will offer you a great experience of sharing multiple layers of flavors through a sampling of many small plates. Even our selection of craft wines and craft draft beers has been hand-picked to compliment the menu. For those seeking a gluten free cooking environment, our whole menu features gluten free offerings, with one exception of our house made pita bread. Looking forward to hosting you soon! Dinner begins at 5pm. Our kitchen closes at 9:30pm Sun -Thurs & 11pm Fri-Sat, but our spacious bar stays open 'til last call..

Excellent meal....Classic Hummes was outstanding as was the Chicken Tenderloin! We tried some fried meatballs which were delish. It has a city neighborhood feel with the convenience of the suburbs (there is an easily accessible parking lot directly across the street) this restaurant was lovely and yummy. Can't wait to go back!

We went on Valentine's Day (Evening). Falafel was dry. Tenderloin kebab on skewer was okay. Portion of meat was way too small for $18.00. Makaronia was dry. No taste. Sampler salad was the best part of the dinner. Kevin was a really good Server. Fun atmosphere. Everyone was very nice. The food left a lot to be desired. I was surprised how bad the food was...

Overall very good, especially the food. Service was good but a little bit slow and back area could use a little more lighting (not much) because it was a little hard reading the menu. Will definitely go back.

I love the grape leaves and cheese pies. It’s always a toss up between the bronzino and something on special. This is a great family friendly restaurant and the owners are so nice and welcoming. We love it there!

The restaurant is fair at best. Not sure what the hype is all about. The tables are tight such that the server could not reach across the table. It is so loud in the place that it was difficult to have a conversation across the table. Our food, the beef tenderloin and lamb, arrived well done when it was ordered medium rare. The pork belly was served burnt and inedible. I left the rest on the plate. The server did not even notice that the main entree wasn't even eaten, when it was staring them in the face. We ordered a bottle of wine and when our glasses were clearly empty, our server took no notice again. In other places the server would have at least offered to fill the glasses. As a side note, we had a reservation, but it was clear that if you weren't on the A list you waited. Some may rave as the staff and chef dote on them but we certainly didn't receive this attention. On the plus side the portions were not overly sized, the tabouli was very tasty, and the parking easy.

Cypriana was incredible from start to finish. This restaurant is now one of my two favorite restaurants in the city. Here’s why: the owner is such a kind man and makes it a point to greet EVERY table and customer who enters this restaurant. From there, he was able to share the most taste-filled details about everything on the menu. You can see the pride of his restaurant in the way he speaks and describes every piece of the menu. Once ordered, every bite was an explosion of tastes that were SO heavenly. We had the hummus, Greek Salad, mushroom grape leaves, and shares an entree, pork belly - it was such an amazing meal. Be sure to order all of this AND Cyprus coffee with Baklava. The owner said it perfectly, “ this will be the best baklava you ever had” and he sure was right! Even the barista was lovely as she explained the process of making Cyprus coffee to my husband and me. We would go to this restaurant daily if we could and cannot wait to go back!!!

We love Cypriana - sesame roasted feta and Greek salad were outstanding. The back room where we were seated was like a storage area blocked off from the rest of the restaurant by metal shelving. Also, the lamb chops were, in my opinion, overpriced at 3 for $35. Even less appealing were the unusual consistency of the lamb chops which in the case of all three were very stringy.
This will not prevent us from returning, but will not order the lamb chops.

Our reservation was for 8:15 but we had to wait about 25 minutes for seating at two top in flow of traffic. Was Saturday night and extremely noisy. Conversation not possible without yelling. All plates are small Mezze running $10 to 18 or more each. Kebab - tender and tasty but small - came with cold burned french fries and a two tablespoons of tasty chopped salad. Desserts limited, $10 each. Chocolate cake tasted like Sams club cake but with rosewater drizzled on it. May go back at a less busy time. Pretty place but too loud.

I give this gem of a place 5 stars! The only thing I would mention is there is no changing table in the restroom but there are high chairs. Even still this place is amazing. It’s an evening place so I was even surprised by the highchairs being available. The food is unique and made with absolute care and love. I have dined here twice and have made this a go to place for special occassions. I live very close to DC and the drive is worth it. The waiter was busy but treated us as if we were his only customer. The owners are great and even come around after dinner to ask how everything was and for a little small talk. This place is a true gem!

This was our first time at Cypriana. It was fantastic! Prior to our reservation time, the hostess called us to let us know there was utility work on the street in front of the restaurant and gave very helpful directions about where to park. When we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly sever. The atmosphere was energetic and fun. The owner/manager came over prior to us ordering, asked if we had dined there before and sat down at our table. He walked us through the menu and let me know that everything on the menu was gluten free except for three items. One of which was pita, but they have a gluten free pita. As a celiac, this was music to my ears! We had a wonderful meal sharing many small plates with our group of five. Some were so good we ordered seconds! We finished off the meal with a delicious chocolate cake that the kitchen had adorned with a happy birthday message for my mom. When we left the owner/manager shook our hands at the door, asked us about how our experience was, and engaged in fun conversation about Greece. I rarely write reviews, but use them to guide my own dining experiences. Wonderful reviews were what brought us to Cypriana and this one should bring you there too!
