Mediterranean
*Standard seating is indoor seating when booking*
A casual but upscale authentic neighborhood Mediterranean Bar & Grill in Baltimore. Featuring an all hand-made in-house simplified menu, we bring small plates crafted by the passion of our chef, creating everything from the home-made pita dough down to hand crafted dressings that come with all of the goodies. These are the recipes of our grandmothers. Our clean-eating menu will offer you a great experience of sharing multiple layers of flavors through a sampling of many small plates. Even our selection of craft wines and craft draft beers has been hand-picked to compliment the menu. For those seeking a gluten free cooking environment, our whole menu features gluten free offerings, with one exception of our house made pita bread. Looking forward to hosting you soon! Dinner begins at 5pm. Our kitchen closes at 9:30pm Sun -Thurs & 11pm Fri-Sat, but our spacious bar stays open 'til last call..

Felt safe eating inside. Owners offered the option of eating outside. They were ready to set up another table out there for us. They couldn't be nicer - food was amazing. Queeny, our server, helpful with selection ideas, and super sweet. Chef/owner made us feel like family. Our first visit and we'll be back again.

Good Greek food in pleasant outdoor seating- the lighting could be much better, and they will need heaters outdoors very soon !

I'm going to start out my 5-star review with a complaint. When we sat down, seated quickly in their innovative outdoor island seating, we were not served for 20 minutes and no one came by our table. The manager was doing his rounds and looked at our table with nothing on it and had a look of horror on his face, apologized profusely, and immediately went to find out who was supposed to cover or table. He came back with the server who took our orders (finally). After the server took our orders he returned with a complimentary hummus appetizer that was excellent. He made sure to check on us and had another server also following-up to make sure we were treated well for the rest of dinner.

The food was excellent and the service that we say at other tables was speedy and timely as expected. LSS it was a great restaurant with a bad server but personable management who cares about the customer experience. We'll go back again.

Food is delicious, if perhaps a bit overpriced. They won’t seat you until your whole party arrives, so just be aware of that. I would go back for date night or dinner with a friend, but I wouldn’t book for a group of people.

I booked the dinner reservation for my 60th Birthday. I was pleasantly surprised they had dining outdoors in front of the restaurant. I thought it was a cleaver solution to practice social distancing during the pandemic.
Staff was very attentive, the owner was also walking around to assist
Food was outstanding and I would definitely come back again. Nice evening and didnt mind eating outdoors.

Our food was delicious and the set-up outdoors was safe and comfortable. While I gave service only 3 stars, our server was excellent. What wasn’t excellent was discovering after we got home that a 20% covid service charge had been imposed. It was pretty dark at our table and we couldn’t read the check well so gave an additional large tip. The server should have told us (the owners should have trained them to do so) or the menu should have stated that such a charge would be imposed.

The outdoor dining is in the very large and scenic median strip. It is beautiful. Parking is in the lot across the street and is free. 20% Covid gratuity is added in. Traffic cones slow the cars on both sides of the street. The octopus is excellent.

Although the food was very delicious, the service was lacking. We ate outdoors at a well-spaced table and the staff appeared to be taking appropriate covid precautions. Hummus and cheese and spinach pies were scrumptious as was the homemade pita. The lamb shank was quite lovely too. The meal would have been better if the staff had been more attentive and we were told about the 20% covid surcharge. Husband stayed to pay for our check which we gauged would take extra time given the earlier service. We don’t mind paying a surcharge but it was not mentioned at all.

We love Cypriana and are grateful for their fabulous outside dining area! But with this said, we were there on a very busy night and 4 of us were sat at a small four top table which made it hard to juggle the myriad of dips and appetizers we ordered. Our waitress did not pace our food like we asked and our entrees came out on top of our appetizers with no where to put our dinner. We wound up frustrated and skipped eating most of our appetizers and in frustration told the bus boy to just take them. Our waitress also brought out a wrong entree, which was her mistake because 3 of the 4 of us witnessed what was ordered. She then blamed our friend that he gave the wrong order which was untrue. Our small table had stacks of empty dishes piled in the middle of the table the whole meal...our water glasses remained empty after asking for a refill 3 times. If your waitstaff is overwhelmed, your busboy is overwhelmed, shouldn’t the manager or owner be walking around helping to fill at the very least water glasses? While Covid calls for crazy business circumstances, at least in my business we all roll up our sleeves to pitch in. A 5 for delicious food and a 1 for poor waitstaff.

I know it's tough in COVID times to serve a great meal. The service was excellent considering the beautiful night and the completely filled outdoor (well-spaced!) seating area. The food was mediocre for the price. Will try the "street food" and flatbreads next time -- the kabobs and meatballs we just OK, the hummus was great as it always is, and the moussaka was decent. Not sure if Open Table lets you know, but there is a 20% COVID relief service charge on top of which you should tip if so inclined. we did, and felt good about it b/c service was great and it was good to finally go out!

Cypriana never fails to satisfy -- from the welcoming atmosphere, the deliciousness of the cuisine, and the efforts of the owners and staff to make everyone feel special.

Everyone has one or two "go to" restaurants. This is ours.

We enjoyed the casual outdoor dining experience. Note that the “flatbread” is more like an extremely cheesy thin crust pizza, which is not what we expected. Order only if you like LOTS of cheese.

I really like their set-up outside. The food was excellent and I was happy to see many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. I do wish there was a bit more lighting outdoors and I would have felt more comfortable if the servers wore gloves, but otherwise everything was very clean and organized.
