  • "Old movie theatre turned restaurant has a great look and feel. Been to quite a few Mexican restaurants but this one tops the list. The hand made tamales, mole sauce on the enchiladas and the house margaritas were a difference maker. Have to put a word in for our server Ray also, top notch with service and recommendations"

  • "This is the spot for great Mexican food and drink. The food is great and the decor eclectic. Margaritas are wonderful but they aren't frozen if you like that. Highly recommended."

  • "Stopped in at CiNe for lunch. Food was great except a mistake was made with order brought to table. Wish they didnt eliminate whole bean sides- refried only now. Server was very efficient and friendly. They have greatly improved the wine by the glass."

  • "Not just your standard Mexican-American staples here- as much as I like a well executed taco or tamale with a pile of rice & beans, Cine is so much more than that. I'll be back."

  • "This was the second time I have been there... Last time we sat outside and there was a problem trying to get a waiter. Same thing happened this time... My husband and I sat for about 10-15 minutes before we finally asked who our waiter was. The waiter we got was very good, but I do feel they need to at least come over and introduce themselves when we sit down. I realize they are busy, but at least acknowledge our presence. We were ready to walk out..the food was pretty good, but with a tip was close to $100 for two, and for Mexiican food I felt it was pricey... We only had two drinks ."

  • "I'm very picky when it comes to Mexican food! I'm so very particular about my cuisine and my favorite mexican restaurant has always been Rick Bayless’ restaurants. But now there is chef Luis at Cine in Hinsdale. The food was amazing! My husband had the Cine Steak and I had the salmon. Both entrees were boasting with flavor! The cocktails were great, not overpowering as the mango margarita was a nice summer treat. The only thing I could say that was sub-par was the slow waitress. Although she was new to the restaurant industry, she would leave our table for too long a time frame. Cine has changed for the better since it first opened with much better food now and they’re more accommodating. We can't say enough about it!"

  • "I was curious to see how they would make this old movie house into a restaurant. It was nicely done! The food was also very tasty. I had the snapper which was very flavorful. I look forward to returning for brunch"

  • "I was very surprised of the new menu changes they made. I remember it used to be more of a french fusion but now is more of what you expect of Mexican food. Don't take me wrong, it was good before, but now you can order with more confidence. I am a meat eater and I had a combo platter with filet mignon and jumbo shrimp. My wife had the Veracruz fish and it was off the wall. The drinks are also very well balanced. I had a drink made with Acai liquor and tequila and I can still taste it. My wife had the Watermelon margarita and she also loved it. Dessert was also very yummi I am a tequila aficionado, and their tequila selection is quite impressive Our server did a great job with suggestions and overall we never felt rushed or forgotten"

  • "CiNe is a very attractive Mexican restaurant with a varied dining room and bar layout. It serves excellent food. It's unique personality is partly due to being in an old movie theater building. There is also an attractive outdoor dining "alley". Highly recommended."

  • "I thought the food I had was delicious although some of the members of our party did not like the fish they had. The restaurant was beautiful with a great decor. Our service was not great. Took a long time to get our drinks and forgot that we had asked for extra chips, water, etc. Our coffee was bad as well and had to be returned. They did make a fresh pot and all was fine."

  • "We moved from the city 3 years ago and the thing I miss the most is the restaurants. Cine is the best neighborhood mexican restaurant in our area. We went hear with another couple and sat outside. They did a great job on the interiors of this place and the way they sectioned off the space. The outdoor area is well done, it is between another building so you are not staring at a bunch of cars on the street. Our waitress was great (wish I could remember her name) and the food was very good. We started with the chips and quacamole, had the ceviche trio and I ordered the shrimp tacos. Definitely worth trying this restaurant."

  • "The food was exception, while expensive for Mexican food. I had the burrito and enjoyed it - although it came with fries, which was surprising. The drinks are very good and I loved the sangria. Our waitress was so friendly and provided wonderful service and always with a smile. I would definitely go back. Just a little word of warning. It is VERY loud. We asked for a table in the back so we could hear each other but wouldn't have stayed if we had to sit in the front."

  • "My date and I dined at the bar area and we had such a blast trying all the different cocktails. The mixologist, Luis is a master of his craft. Our favorite drinks included: 1. The hand shaken CiNE margarita. we can have it made with any tequila, fresh hand squeezed lime juice, simple syrup, and triple sec. WOW! THE BEST OUT THERE! 2. The watermelon marg. the presentation with a spicy/sweet rim was outstanding. I could taste the freshness of the watermelon - no fake/artificial mixers here 3. White sangria - Made with passionfruit puree- it is slightly sweeter than the traditional red sangria. I want to come back and sit out on the patio and sip these all night! The gauc, avocado fries, and flautas were awesome as well. We will be back!"

  • "My husband and Grandmother-in-law came here for dinner! It was absolutely awesome! This is my second time here and the menu was a bit different, but all for the better. The drinks were excellent! My margarita was prefect, not to sour not to sweet. The guacamole was yummy and I also got the quesadillas and they were so warm and filled with the prefect amount of cheese! My husband got the fajitas and he loved them. He is a picky eater and if he likes something you know it is a good place. The servicer Eva was wonderful, very polite and didn't miss a beat on awesome service! I will definitely be back very soon for another great experience."

  • "Our server, Steve, made it a perfect evening for my friends and me. He brought our drinks and proceeded to give us the history of Cine. He obviously knows it and the chef's strengths well, so we were comfortable asking him for suggestions. He came through for all of us! I enjoyed the chicken crepas, which I'm still dreaming about. I was with a group of friends I hadn't seen for awhile, so needless to say, discussion was non-stop! Steve suggested we put our bottle of water on the end of the table at any time we needed service, rather than have him interrupt. Nice social skills!"

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience at CINE in Hinsdale. We went for a Father's Day lunch, and couldn't have had a better time. To start, the service was excellent. Our server made great recommendations, was super kind and funny, and very prompt! The food was (as every time we've been) just excellent- so fresh! The guacamole, quesadillas, tacos and enchiladas are amazing! And a kids menu too... Bonus!! The dessert, and the 'on the house' churros for the Dad's were so yummy! We'll be back tons- a greet neighborhood find that works for foodies and families alike! :)"

  • "I was very disappointed in Cine on my recent visit. This was my third and my last time. My first experience was on Valentine's Day and it was great. I thought this would be my new favorite restaurant. I went back another time with a girlfriend and it was good, but the service was kind of slow. My last visit was on Friday night at 7:30. Our group of 5 ladies sat outside and were pretty much ignored for the first 15 minutes. No water, chips, silverware...nothing. We flagged someone down and they apologized, however, it didn't get better. It really was disappointing. The food was ok, but overpriced, especially the margaritas at $13.50. Upcharge for sour cream for our tacos???? Really???Unfortunately, I have to say "adios" to Cine for good."

  • "Cine used to be on of my favorite restaurants in the western suburbs.... until they changed their menu. Now it's just your standard mexican restaurant menu and it's not as good. I loved Cine because it was unique and had a different spin on traditional mexican food. The salsa trio, cine margarita, and carnitas quesadillas were some of the best things on the menu and now they are gone all together or changed. Please bring back the old menu!! "

  • "Chef Yanni is gone. Food quality is down. Way down!!!!! If you're just looking for upscale Taco Bell, this may work for you. If you're looking for the Yani/Rick Bayless experience, forget it. "Mexican" vegetable side = broccoli and cauliflower. Steamed! Way!!!!!! overpriced for what is delivered. The owners know better. Shame on them for this restaurant!"

  • "Our experience began with the hostess who treated us as an inconvenience. She needs to be better trained or dismissed. We were seated at a table for 10 despite being a party of 5, twice, because we asked to be moved the first time. There were plenty of other seating options, and we were expected as we had a reservation. Our waiter, while attentive, failed to recognize we wanted to linger over the meal, and repeated asked to remove our plates. We will not return. "

  • "This restaurant has a modern look that is very appealing. The basic Mexican fare (enchiladas, burritos, tamales) were competently prepared but nothing special. The soup of the day - cilantro cream - was outstanding and we will return to try some of the specials and more upscale offerings."

  • "This is a hidden gem! The Owner/Manager Daniel comes to the tables personally. The food has a Latin/Mexican flair with flavor, texture and taste to WOW the taste buds! Great find for us in Hinsdale when you cannot go downtown to Chicago go to CINE! If you are not familiar with what to order try the Combo get the steak or chicken taco, a soft flavorful tamale & beautiful chicken tinga mole enchiladas wrapped with crepes instead of corn tortillas...Excellent overall. Oh, try the chocolate lava cake it has Mexican chocolate in the middle which has a little cinnamon and other flavors and the Warm Churros always are ready to eat!"
