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..

Food is always top notch here. Always, that’s why it’s packed on weekends . Service is a little slow. But I learned something last night. The owner takes care of his employees - some who may need a little help.

He has a heart of gold - and his wife Maria who we usually see is full of life and you can taste that brilliance in each dish. I no longer care if the food or drinks take a little longer to arrive. I left happy and felt good about leaving a good tip. Cypriana is a place you want to support on so many levels.

Food is excellent and creative. We recommend multiple small plates so the maximum different dishes can be tried. Interesting wines, though I miss the Cyprian Red wine they used to have on the menu.

Good atmosphere, proper service (nothing over the top, though). Biggest issue: Small portion sizes for the price

Given it was New Year’s Eve and we were only two people, but from the moment we were seated we were ignored. Even getting a glass of water was almost impossible.

Unfortunately, everything about this restaurant is mediocre. The ambiance is sterile - looks like tables were thrown in an empty space. Mooshy falafel. Grey, steamed-looking filet kebab with french fries so dark - the oil could not have been clean or fresh. Bitter tasting roast eggplant. Inattentive, clumsy, unsophisticated service with empty water glasses throughout the meal. They literally served the entrees before clearing the appetizer plates. Best things were the whole fish and the fresh pita served with the hummus. Too much would have to radically change for me to want to return here.

Fabulous Festive Christmas Eve!
This was our second year celebrating with family at Cyprianna. The food was fabulous, the wait staff was energetic and festive. Once again, it was perfect!

Christmas Eve dinner. Service was great, the owner was there making his rounds and talking to everyone. I felt very taken care of even though the place was packed. Food is delicious. Lots of options for vegans and vegetarians. Definitely will go back!

Cypriana never disappoints. Always a warm greeting, good energy and delicious and interesting food. Christmas Eve dinner was outstanding and set the tone for a wonderful holiday. Each time I go back I try something new but find myself going back to the Pork Butt and Belly. Sooo good. Although the octopus is my second favorite. Very tender and flavorful. This time we ordered the vegan stuffed grape leaves and they are a must have. We should have ordered two for the table because we were cutting them in halves and halves again.
Thank you for a wonderful, magical meal to star the holidays right.

Great recommendations and service. Our server Isabel (hopefully I spelt it right) was amazing and made good conversation. Always on top of what we needed and would give us updates on our food even though we were in no rush which was nice. We had the Baklava Belgium Waffle and it was perfect, yogurt, honey, cinnamon, and was so soft. The humans plate was HUGE for a small which was great. I read it was the voter the best Falafel in Baltimore and it lived up to the name, and I love falafel. I will definitely will be coming back whenever I want Mediterranean food and I am not even from the area.

Great spot for traditional Greek fare with superior hummus, octopus, mushroom soup. Dinner sized sandwich menu during the week is a great value.

But ......they need to drop the white bag fries and make them from scratch with a double fry technique.

Another outstanding meal at Cypriana's! Our server, Nick, was excellent - very personable and attentive. The food was incredible - Greek salads, spinach/cheese pies, lamb shank and Greek grilled chicken - perfectly prepared and delicious! One of our new favorite go-to restaurants!

We had a Saturday evening reservation for two. The free parking lot across the street had lots of open spots. We were seated right away in the dining room which is open to the bar (but not noisy). Our server, Chessa, was great - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered halloumi and roasted olives for starters. The cheese was a little bit rubbery and not as toasty and soft as we have had at other restaurants. The roasted olives were fine- a variety of olives simply heated up. The bread accompanying the starters is puffy and delicious. For entrees, we ordered lamb chops and a beef kabab. We were not asked about preferences for how the meat would be cooked. The lamb chops were a bit overdone but the beef was nicely cooked. The cucumber salad served with entrees was a bit tired and the fries were fine but not memorable. The wine and cocktail lists are very nice and well priced. The dessert menu looked wonderful, but we did not order one.

I can't believe I haven't been here before. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is memorable, and we had a great time for date night. THe grilled octopus melts in your mouth and the other dishes were also amazing -- Chef Maria knocked it out of the park. Not a single complaint about Cypriana, and I look forward to going again.

Recently moved to the neighborhood and were looking for a new spot to try for dinner, open table showed an opening and the other reviews seemed positive so we decided to give it a shot. Our table placement was a bit inconvenient, the waiter was pleasant, the food was great, we loved the grilled octopus and grape leaves, my boyfriend is picky about them and we probably try the grilled octopus everywhere we go that offers it on their menu, that said this was by far one of the best we’ve had, very tender and perfectly charred on the outside, didn’t even need the sauce they served with it. Definitely intend to go back to sample more of the menu.

I would have given this four or five stars across had it not been for the waiter. He started off quite nice and attentive but then he seemed to disappear. The table ordered a salad to share but the entrees arrived before the salad. The food runner took the entrees back and a salad eventually came. However, when the entrees did come, they were cool. I ordered the suggested wine paired with the entree. That was not delivered. I had to get up from my seat to ask for the wine and still it did not come. I then went to the waiter again to tell him the food was cold and that I wanted to order a different bottle of wine. He did bring me a fresh entree but I never got to order a different bottle of wine--he simply brought a full bottle of the suggested wine (the table wanted white instead). To top of it all he offered no apologies.

Went with a small group for Mezze Madness. We all shared a plethora of delicious items from the menu (falafel, meatballs, moussaka, cucumber salad, stuffed grape leaves, etc...) for a great price of $35/pp. Greek red wines are outstanding and there is a nice variety of beers. Server was attentive.
