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..

The food at Cypriana is consistently delicious. You might have to wait for a table, even with a reservation, but it’s worth the wait. Get the hummus and pita and the feta with honey appetizer. We had the octopus entree and the grilled shrimp. Both were were fantastic!

The food is okay, and the service was friendly, but the atmosphere is not good. They have way too many tables packed in there and it just feels crowded and uncomfortable. And it’s ridiculously overpriced. We ordered the Seafood Soiree for 2 — the entree alone was $125. I don’t typically like to spend that much, but if it’s really good I’m okay with it. This felt like it should have been closer to $60. But price aside, they really need to remove at least 10% of the tables to make the place bearable.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the small plates that we were able to share with one another. The atmosphere was nice, fancy but not over the top. The staff was helpful and answered all of our questions, which was nice considering it was our first time there.

Really delicious with small playe optuons as well as entrees. I had the lamb shank and it was so tender and delicious. Nice to have wine pairing suggestions. The desserts were also fabulous and freshly made. Will go back again.

Cypriana was very busy Saturday. They did not handle this well and the service left much to be desired. We told our waiter we had a theatre engagement, but he disappeared for long periods of time and made certain incorrect assumptions about the coursing of our our meal. We had to escalate the problem and by the time the food came we were rushed and did not have a sufficient amount of time to enjoy it. I don't recommend going here on a Saturday night.

P.S. Telling us that "the waiter is still learning" is not a satisfying excuse.

Absolutely, one of our favorite - if not our favorite place! The service is always great, the food is always delicious, and we always leave appreciating the entire experience. This visit, we enjoyed the falafel, which came with a serving of 6 perfectly cooked falafel balls, the non-vegetarian grape leaves, a greek salad, and the lamb chops. Everything was delicious. If I had one suggestion, it would be to serve the falafel with some pita, but otherwise - delicious flavors, great service, and another great dining experience.

We shared all of: traditional hummus, greek salad, and crab cakes. We've been to this restaurant a number of times and knew what to expect of the hummus, pita, and salad - all exceptional. The pita is best in the city - yeah, I know, it's only pita, but it does stand out. Ditto for the hummus. Salad was great, too. But the crab cakes were a surprise - surprisingly good! They're more flavorful than run-of-the-mill, and were truly delicious. I could see some not being as enthusiastic as they were bit heavy on the mayo, but we were happy and would definitely get them again. Drinks here have never disappointed either. We'll be back.

A nice night out for my wife and I. We usually try to pick a place with small plates to share and Cypriana is now on the list. We started with cocktails, hummus and mushroom soup. Delicious. I’m not familiar with many Greek wines so we tried a couple along with the small plates we chose (4 or 5 on top of the hummus and soup). Then capped it off with a Greek coffee. The service was great, the food delicious. We’ll be back.

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.

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.

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.
