Our out of town guest from NYC wanted to try the best of Tallahassee. I think we found one of the top three. The salad and service was excellent. The bouillabase was very good but the portion was small. I wished they had a special Christmas drink but the wine list was excellent.

I had the scallops and my wife had tile fish. Both were great. About $30 per entree. Started with the tuna tartar app and warm bread ($3). Ordered a bottle of Oregon Pinot at a price of $60. I didn't know at the time they allowed corkage and it is only $10. What a bargain! A couple of small service... More

I had a great experience in Cypress, they serve world class food, every bite is exquisite, fresh, surprising, in a nice ambience with a great service. We shared several plates and they all made a great experience. I remember especially the seasonal salad, the chicken livers (mmmmm!!) and the oysters.

We appreciated the fact that the restaurant was on Open Table and allowed reservations. This streamlines the process from the start. The restaurant is easily accessible from local downtown hotels. Its interior is cozy with a small bar seating area available and coastal artwork on display throughout the restaurant. The pay special attention to details (hello peach-thyme butter with the...

The first time I was at this restaurant - I was so impressed. The service was perfection and the food was so good. I had the seasonal salad and the smoked pork shoulder stack. I cannot say enough about the flavors and presentation of this food. So Good!!!

I was visiting family in Tallahassee and have heard so much about Cypress. I had visited years ago, and friends kept saying it was "world class" and the best restaurant in Tallahassee. I live in a large city and so am accustomed to very good food with very good service, when paying the prices that Cypress commands. Cypress cannot hold... More

It is unfortunate that your objection to our cake fee has turned into a smear campaign across all social media outlets. It’s our policy. You don’t have to like it but abide by it. It is evident that your recollection of events was clouded by your anger. Although the term has been around a while, The Oxford Dictionary added the... More

This place is great. Great bar area with well made cocktails. Cheese course offerings were a great surprise and are outstanding. Nice variety of both classic and new Southern cuisine, well executed and delicious. I've been there twice now and excellent both times. Outstanding wine list and great desserts as well. A really pleasant surprise in Tallahassee!

First of all -- 2 people, 2 entrees, 2 appetizers & one bottle of wine near the bottom of the price list = $173 with a tip. That is a New York City price. Why in the world does one of the cheapest bottles of wine on the list have to be $44? And our new server was very overmatched,... More

We were taking our son to FSU, we want have dinner together. We checked the reviews and went there. The restaurant is excellent, we had the tuna and was amazing! The desert was very good too.
