Diner Reviews
  • "We stopped in for a latish (9:00) dinner and we had a great time. Our server was perfect (she was attentive, helpful & did not remove my cocktail glass until I was 100% done). The chicken dish was moist and wonderfully seasoned."

  • "What a wonderful little gem to find (thanks YELP) on a quick trip to Los Gatos! The food and service were outstanding- wonderful cheese plate but the Korean tacos on steamed buns (feel free to ask the waiter Mike for a tweaking of the menu) were to die for. I will be back!"
    Dined on 10/18/2014
  • "As always Cin-Cin was excellent as usual. The food was great and the service was also great. The only change that I noticed was that the Wine Lists seem to be getting more and more expensive with few choices of recognizable wines. Not everyone wants to spend $50-$60 a bottle for white wines not to mention the red wines."

  • "Came to Cin Cin to meet some friends. Had to drive from Capitola, but it was well worth it. Everything we got was yummy!"

  • "As always. The food never disappoints, we visit this restaurant 3-4 times a year. The wild mushroom empanadas and the sliders are a must try. Had the fried chicken for the first time, and we would definitely order that again as well."

  • "Cin Cin is consistently good - yummy drinks, wine and so many great small plates. We were a tad disappointed on this visit by a cocktail and a dessert, but all the food was great as always!"

  • "First time for us at Cin Cin. We enjoyed our visit. Food was very good..my lady and I both had scallops. Our waitress, Alisa, was excellent. This young girl was quite efficient, very pleasant and had a wonderful, relaxed attitude. It was noisy but somehow we considered it just lively with a young crowd of diners still going when we left close to 9PM."

  • "We love this place! Such creative and interesting food! Love the half price wine night! But we miss our favorite waiter, Jarod! Service is always good."
    Dined on 10/6/2014
  • "We love coming to Cin Cin, but this time round they missed on the service - timing was off and we felt rushed. Specifically our first courses didn't come out at the same time (one of us had almost finished by the time the other one arrived), and our third courses arrived before my husband had finished his second course. Food was amazing as always, so we will be back :)"

  • "Even though they no longer have the appetizer sampler plate, which was delicious, the charcuterie & cheese plate was a delicious appetizer to share among 4 people. Love the restaurant for the small plates so that you try a lot of different items. The beet salad was just the right softness and paired with the goat cheese to bring out its sweetness. The grill octopus was a tough though and having just gotten back from San Sebastian, unfortunately doesn't compare. Our waiter Michael has only been there a month and was very attentive - we'll ask for his table again. Love to find waiters we can connect with."

  • "First time at the restaurant with a group of very tired co-workers. Incredible food, great service and good atmosphere. I loved the deviled eggs, the truffle fries and short ribs."

  • "It was my first time here, and I took my boyfriend. Coworkers sent me here with a gift card for my birthday. I was glad to see that the attire and attitude around the place was casual, but the restaurant itself was classy and romantic. Rather than share a bottle of wine, he and I had cocktails. He didn't enjoy his as it was too light for his tastes but my drink resembled a stirred old fashioned and was delicious. We shared one of the specials (potatoes with chorizo sauce), a side of veggies, and the steak frittes. Everything was delicious! The only thing that could have made the experience better was if the ceiling fan in the room we were in was either off, or slowed down, and I think I was sitting under the air conditioning."

  • "We returned to Cin Cin to celebrate my husbands birthday. Everyone was friendly and attentive. As we checked in the hostess wished him a happy birthday and our waitperson mentioned it several times as well. Can't beat 50% all wines on Mondays. We were able to drink one of our favorite sparking wines at a great price point. I recently took a family friend to different restaurant that had a Michelin star. It was her 90th bday and not one person wished her a happy birthday. I would return to Cin Cin over this Michelin star restaurant in a heartbeat!"
    Dined on 9/22/2014
  • "We went on a Monday when most other places in Los Gatos are shut. It was very busy but that apparently is because Monday night is half price wine night. If you are like us then half price wine can take a chunk out of your bill! The place is very nice, really great ambiance. Service was good but they were busy. Most of the food was delicious. The Ahi Tuna was fabulous. I would absolutely recommend Cin Cin to anybody looking for a fun night in a restaurant."
    Dined on 9/22/2014
  • "The place was loud, but it was Saturday night, and it was full. We ordered the Octopus, which was amazing. The Caprese Salad was equally good. They had a really good selection of wine available, and I love that you can create your own flights. Great service, and an all around good time. I will definitely go back."

  • "YUMM YUMM and more YUMMERZ all with great service and a Smile! Aaron our waiter was great, but the bus boy (man) was amazing and attentive, not only filling water, but bread, or taking plates, bringing napkins... great great place!"

  • "Cin-Cin consistently delivers delicious food and innovative drinks. Not only do they have an amazing wine list, their cocktail options are always exciting and fresh. The food is delicious. No matter what I order, I am always pleasantly surprised at how flavorful and fulfilling the food is. Cin-Cin is perfect for anniversaries, girls night out, birthdays, dates, and much more. It is an intimate setting serving amazing food."

  • "We have been to Cin-Cin several times before and had great meals. This time not at all! The food was average and the service was terrible! We waited sooo long for our food and drinks. And it wa not worth waiting for. Out of four items, the soup was the only impressive dish. Will not come back; too many other options in the area."

  • "This was my second time here. My first time was with a group of 5, this time just with my boyfriend. It was a tiny bit too loud for a romantic dinner, but we still had a really great time and I loved the Korean Tacos, Cheese plate and wine flights were as amazing as I remembered the first time. I was a little let down by the braised short ribs, but when the amazing waitress Mimi saw I has only eaten half my plate she took my meal off of the bill. She really didn't have to do that, but it was such a nice gesture that I will be coming back far more often. The cost of the main course immediately went to her tip. She was also great at helping us pick out cheeses for our cheese plate and to decide on wine flights. I will be back soon!"

  • "Upon entering Cin-cin I was immediately aware of the wonderful atmosphere. A friendly host escorted us to our table. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable of food and our wine selections. I was amazed how much we enjoyed the food that satisfied all our senses. The flavor of the small plates that were served was sensational. Shrimp and grits, wild mushroom empanadas, grilled octopus, and steamed buns with pork bellynwere just a few of the fabulous small plates we loved. The whole experience was wonderful. I am going to recommend this restaurant to all of my friends."

Our server was extremely attentive, answered any questions we had, in great detail. It was a nice, un rushed dinner. My only complaint is I expected more wine by the glass options from a wine bar. The few offered were meh... Overall- Good Time"
