When they first opened they were great; that was several years ago. I was there a few months ago and the service was college town service (server just there to get a pay check and not able to pay attention details). The price was too high for the quality and service.

My client recommended Black Cypress while I was on a business trip in Pullman. As I was solo, I sat at the bar to enjoy an incredible meal. The bartender suggested a special wine he had open, and I ordered a fantastic Caesar salad (loved the croutons!) and the pasta special: puttanesca. Every bite was sublime. The vibe was warm... More

Picked this place one night about 8PM and glad we did. Right in the middle of town and parking on the street was no problem. Enjoyed one of the BEST steaks I've had in a long time and the price was very reasonable. Atmosphere is what you would find in a college town and very friendly and casual.

We enjoyed a gracious service, a delicious meal, and lovely ambiance. Had a steak and salad. Perfectly cooked, well seasoned. Had cocktails off the menu, but should have stuck with the old standbys (martini and Manhattan) as they were too sweet for our taste - but many would disagree with us! Anyway, we'd recommend this place with highly.

We were there for dinner, and everything was great: food, atmosphere, service. Our daughter, a veterinarian who graduated from WSU, said this is the place to go, and she is right.

The host worked our party of 4 in despite it being the Frjday night before a football weekend. Two of us had the fresh halibut, which was delicious. Our party also had the best salad and the roasted chicken. Everyone loved the food. The prices were reasonable and it was possible to choose more healthful menu items. The prices were... More

Black Cypress was a real find---great food with a Greek influence and a great bottle of wine at a good price. Appetizers were delicious, as were the entrees and we had a lovely dessert.

We did not have reservations but had called ahead to make sure timing would minimize our wait and was delighted to find that we were seated right away. The wait staff were professional, friendly,attentive, and knowledgeable. I had the beet salad and lamb chops and must say, both rank up there with the best meal I have ever had. For... More

I went to Pullman last week with my 12 year old dog and my 89 year old mom. Dog for work up at WSU for potential liver cancer. Mom, for companionship. We did the drive from Seattle in one long day and we didn't stop to eat anything because, um, there's really no place to stop and have a meal.... More
