Been to this establishment twice in the last month. Despite its adorable kids menu, this is NOT a family friendly restaurant. My first visit, they seemed annoyed at the presence of my well behaved 8 year old daughter, burnt her first pizza, and then brought the second (straight from the oven and insanely hot) 10 minutes after my entree was...

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Highlands. We spend the first week in November, every year. The food at Cyprus is always exceptionally interesting and delicious. It was, this time, as well. However, on this visit, the service was almost non- existent. We, literally, had to grab a waitress by the elbow as she walk by in order... More

The food was very good, which would be okay if a patron could get a drink while waiting for the slow delivery of food. However, the service was so slow, due to an apparent understaffing, that a cocktail was 20 minutes coming. Disappointing, although, the food was good when we finally got it.

There were Jamaican options, Thai options, and more! Very eclectic menu. Food was tasty, but a bit pricey.

They offer outside seating on the roof and a dog friendly atmosphere. There are many options to choose from: Italian, Indian, Thai, Jamaican, Japanese. We ordered goat poppers and lobster Thai. Both were really yummy!! Service was good and friendly!

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dining experience at the "chefs table". Cypress reflects tastes from Thailand, U.S. and Mexico, Lebanon, India, Italy, Japan, France , and Jamaica. We both chose Lebanon dishes tonight. My wife was thrilled with her Latakia Pomegranate Seared Cobia, and I enjoyed the Lamb Tangine (lamb stew). We started with the Stoned & Drunk... More

We wandered Highlands glancing at menus, unsure of what we wanted for dinner. My husband decided on Cyprus due to the fact that they had multiple options to choose from. He had the lamb tagine, and I had the pork shoulder with risotto; both were just wonderful! The service was very good and perfectly unhurried--Thank you, Sasha, for being helpful,... More
