    Our dinner at Cypriana was fabulous! Chef Maria and her team create a lovely dining experience from the moment you walk in the door. We were seated by a gracious hostess, greeted and served by a friendly, knowledgeable waiter, followed by a delicious, perfectly meal by Chef Maria. Our whole meal was wonderful but the lamb chops were exquisite! Highly recommend!

    This was a "date night" dinner. We started with specialty drinks from the bar - FANTASTIC taste (the bartender was great). For dinner - started with falafel - what a treat to start the evening. The menu offered a great selection of foods - we decided on Shettalies and Athenian shrimp dish. The Shettalies were especially delicious a true "melt in your mouth" joy of tastes. In addition to a fantastic meal, the staff were EXCELLENT, from our bubbly waitress to the owner's "hands on" involvement - stopping by more than once to see how everything was and giving suggestions to ensure full enjoyment of every bite. A GREAT place for any occasion or meal out. PS - having parking lot across street make parking easy!

    By far, hands down, one of the (few) most authentic and incredibly delicious restaurants in Baltimore. From the freshly made hummus and pita to the most tender chicken and most flavorful salmon out there…don’t forget the dessert’s- all hand made by Chef Maria!! Go to Cypriana - you will NOT be disappointed…

    Food was underwhelming and overpriced. We got a sampler with pita and hummus. With the money we paid for it ($28) you'd expect it to be homemade, but neither did. They tasted like they came out of a package/jar. The sides that came with it were either cold and/or tasteless. My wife got an eggplant dish that was 4 little slices with a balsamic glaze for $18, whereas I got a chicken entree with two sides for only $1 more. We also got falafel. It was extremely deep fried to the point where we each got sick from it. I'm honestly surprised this restaurant has as high reviews on Google reviews as it does. Stay away!

    Arrived 8 minutes before my reservation, I was seated only when all the party arrived. For the first time in 40+ years and thousands of restaurants in 40+ countries I was asked to wait until all the members of the party arrived This ruined the whole experience for me Food was good, service OK, noise a lot, atmosphere like a hospital cafeteria You need to hire more waiters, don’t stretch them so thin. Remove empty tables without chairs, don’t just push them by the wall, fix the lighting, revamp the decor of the room to the right . And don’t kill the century-old rule: a reservation has to be seated .

    Evening began with a disgruntled patron loudly engaging in an verbal altercation with who we assumed was the owner/manager, throwing around accusations of homophobia, ultimately being asked (aggressively) to leave. Wait staff was incredibly apologetic, overly so, at the expense of their competence and composure. Our waiter knew nothing about the menu and was unable to answer simple questions about how the food was served. 20% gratuity included for Valentine’s Day so really he had nothing to lose. We ordered the falafel, crab dip, grilled portobello mushrooms and grilled octopus. Everything was unbelievable overpriced and middling at best - something that would be acceptable for a nice night out on Valentine’s Day if only the wait staff weren’t so incredibly moronic and the ambience so thoroughly grating. Will never return.

    The family ownership and staff delivered on a fabulous meal. The beet hummus and yummy pita, beef tenderloin, and roasted shrimp were amazing. The house mix drinks (a Cosmo and Cypriana Martini) hit the spot! Finished dinner with pistachio treat and Ouzo aperitif. So good. Owners are so lovely and proud of their restaurant. They should be. A Baltimore treat.

    During our experience, we had to wait hours for our food. And I mean HOURS! We were told there was a dinner time limit of 1.5 hours…. By that time we hadn’t even received our dinner. By the time we had received our dinner (over 2 hours later), there was a fight between an apparently drunk customer and the owner, for which an ambulance and police were dispatched to handle. While we don’t directly blame the owner for the act of an idiotic man who clearly couldn’t handle his alcohol, this was NOT what we had pictured for our Valentines Day dinner. The food was over priced, part of it could have been the EXTREMELY long wait time and horrible experience persuading our palates to be biased towards the food, but I would never go back based off all the things that went wrong during our stay.

    We always look forward to our dinning at Cypriana’s and this Valentines was no exception! I typically avoid the Valentines outing but knew my girlfriend needed some TLC and it is her favorite local restaurant. The meal was exceptional and the service attentive and knowledgeable. A twist on hummus with beets was surprisingly delicious as was the octopus ceviche. Maria’s homemade salted pistachio baklava was worth every calorie laden bite! We look forward to retuning soon!

    I had an absolutely extravagant experience at Cypriana. The food is truly decadent, fresh and served promptly. Our server, Anna, was incredibly warm and completely focused on taking care of us. The venue itself is welcoming and intimate. This place is perfect for any kind of night out, whether it be a solo bite or a larger party. There's also something on the menu for everyone, whether you know you love Greek food, or have yet to realize that!

    While we were seated right away (we did have a reservation) it took ages to get a server, we frequently ran out of water or had to wave down a server for assistance. The food was fine - over cooked falafal (or possibly very old oil at too high a temp), which we mentioned to the server - with no apology or offer of remaking, but the other items were ok. Price was high considering the service and quality.

    If you like Greek food, it seems to be traditional. Strange thing is that the appetizers were great but the maid dishes were just soso. -- That was diappointing. Place is busy on aTSat. evening. Getting there at 6pm, was a good idea, with a reservation. Probably will not go back unless it is for a drink and an app.

    This was my first visit and quite simply, could not have been better!! From the kindness and professionalism of the staff to the incredible food, what stood out the most was just how much every single employee cared about each and every thing they did. It starts at the top, with Fasil and his wife, who have clearly created an environment that allows employees to thrive. This is my new favorite restaurant, by a landslide!!

    Server was excellent. Anna was so sweet & knowledgeable. Great service. Lots of food to choose from for 2 people if you've not had items before. Tables were a bit close together but I guess because it was NYE, they could pack patrons in. Tables small also if you order more than 2 small plates Food was tasty as were drinks. Only negative was the coffee!!! Terrible! The French press was set up with grounds heaped on the spout. I removed them before pressing. However, there were so many grounds floating in my coffee, I had to try & remove the majority of grounds. Plus, for me, coffee was not good. I'd suggest fresh brewed coffee not from a faulty French press.

    I will preface my review by saying we dined at Cypriana on NYE, so perhaps on a less busy night things would be better. Atmosphere was ok, nothing fancy, but nice enough. Tables are super close together so getting to tables can be a tight squeeze. Service was subpar, especially for a dinner that cost nearly $100 per person. I must eat gluten-free due to a health issue and our waitress was not at all informed. She just said most of the menu is GF, and if I had questions about a specific menu item to let her know. I asked if she could point out the non-GF items and she made a half-hearted attempt and did not seem confident in her response,and clearly missed a few items that I circled back to. This all could be avoided with a simple GF on the menu where applicable. She mentioned GF pita was available, so we said great, and ordered hummus. Luckily I asked the person who delivered our food to confirm the pita was GF…because it wasn’t. This was quickly resolved, but the GF pita was stale. In addition to lack of knowledge, service was mediocre at best. Water glasses remained empty most of the meal and we had to request drinks. Food was super disappointing. The only decent thing was the hummus. The octopus was gross. No seasoning, overcooked and mine had a bit of a fishy off taste I’ve never experienced before. My husband and I love octopus so much that we both chose it as our main plate. I ate maybe 1/4 of mine and my husband didn’t finish his. The sides were tasteless and everything we ate lacked salt. The mushroom grape leaves and falafel were just OK. Probably the worst meal of 2023 for us.
