WOW! What a gem of a restaurant! We were treated to a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary and what a treat this restaurant was. Cynthia's has that old world fine dining charm - but not pretentious and stuck up (they have Avocado Ritz on the menu - that's pretty old school right?! - and served sorbet between meals!) with...

We celebrated Christmas at Cynthia's with an excellent lunch in a very relaxed atmosphere. Although busy, the restaurant was not crowded. It was difficult to make a choice between the menus due to the delicious selection of dishes included in each. The chef's culinary skills were displayed in the outstanding manner of presentation of all the dishes. Thank you Cynthia's... More

Lovely fine dining restaurant, ideal for romantic dinners. Great menu, maitre'de was very snooty, we think he embarrassed himself & gave us a laugh at his expense.
