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.

This is a very nice restaurant even though it's on the pricey side. Service was prompt, the atmosphere was great, and the food was AMAZING. (I had the andouille sausage and sweet potato hash as an appetizer, and the buttermilk fried chicken as an entree, and both were excellent.) Would definitely visit again.

We had a great waiter who said he was from Ft. Lauderdale originally. Martinis with frshly made stuffed olives were just right. The 2 salads were above average but rather small. The shrimp with grits, we shared, were excellent. They have valet parking which we did not need with their parking lot. We will eat here whenever we come to... More

This restaurant has always been one of my favorites. I really enjoyed the fish dishes, especially the salmon. Great atmosphere. Definitely a great place to enjoy with good friends.

I heard and read great things about this place and was excited to finally experience the food. Right off we got a bread basket that had 4 pieces of pretty good crusty bread , 4 horrible tiny biscuits and were charged $3 for the basket. We only eat out when traveling and once a month when at home and I... More

The food was spot on, perfectly cooked and the ingredients went together perfectly. The difference between a Chef and a cook. The entrees are actually thought out not thrown together. The service was on par with the food and the wait staff actually knew the menu if you have a question or comment. Love It !!!
