Here we are! Read everyone's review while we were doing Happy Hour and weren't sure what to expect. We were excited to get Jeremy as our waiter since everyone raved about him. Just polished off the Eggplant Bruschetta; get 2 you won't want to share. I ordered the special Quail. Unreal! Very gourmet southern flavors. Complemented with the wine we... More

I've long been a fan of Cypress but this was my first Sunday brunch experience. The menu offered a number of choices of both a breakfast and lunch variety, including starters, soups and salads. Great service and a wonderful menu! Cypress did not disappoint!

The Cypress Restaurant looks like my kinda place: a bit rustic, a few "chef-taking-chances" items on the menu, and a small somewhat intimate atmosphere. In town for business I had not reserved a table, but the confused desk staff worked to accommodate me anyway. Ten minutes after being seated and it was finally determined who would actually wait on me,... More

I met some friends here for a pre-theatre drink and a bite to eat. As we were not staying for dinner we made a reservation to be seated at the bar. On arrival there were our places all set up exactly as a table would have been set up, which was very welcoming. We were given the drinks menu which... More

You need to get to this restaurant early if you want a seat. Our party had to eat in the bar but the food was very nice and the service good. It is within walking distance from downtown hotels.

Sorry, but I do not share the same enthusiasm about Cypress as other reviewers! During as recent Tallahassee stay, we were looking forward to eating at Cypress based on recommendations of others, but, overall, we were disappointed. The restaurant has a parking lot and valet which makes it easy. The restaurant itself is nice, and the service was fine. There... More

Dined here with long time friends/former classmate during a solo trip back for the Florida State University Homecoming weekend. My 1st time back in Tallahassee since graduating in 1974! My hosts choose Cypress. Great choice. I am vegetarian, and had ample choices from the menu. Starter salad was excellent, veggie entree very good. Decent wine list, including a surprise to... More

Though we've had many enjoyable dining experiences at Cypress, we thought we'd eat in the bar for a change since they had live music there. We ordered three small plates from the bar menu plus a burger, all which were delicious. Also had a martini and a glass of wine, both which were quite tasty. Service is consistently very good...

Great food. Scallop appetizer was amazing. Cheese plate excellent. We both had the yellow fin tuna with plantains and sausages and loved it. Service was friendly and helpful. We look forward to another meal there.
