As one of only a few restaurants in the USA which has been given two Michelin stars, Cyrus is the quintessential
special occasion restaurant destination in the beautiful California Sonoma wine country.
With too many accolades to list here, Cyrus offers a choice of a five or eight course tasting menu. Although one
can order a la carte in the bar area, the tasting menu is the way to go for a splendid dining experience. Formal and
beautifully orchestrated service and food come together to make for a memorable evening.
Our party of four was celebrating a birthday, and the chef and servers produced three lovely surprise and unique
birthday desserts with a flair that had all of us smiling. Scattered among our eight courses were several little
‘gifts’ and amuses…….delicious tastes that appeared just at the right time. This is a dining experience that takes
an entire evening, is fun, beautiful and memorable. Each of us was also given a printed menu….. a memento of
all the courses we had, 18 in all!
A tour of the kitchen at the end of the evening gave us a behind-the-scenes view that made the evening complete.
