Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "We had a great server and delicious food at CiNe. The restaurant is a little noisy for conversation, but manageable. The only downside to our evening was that our meal was very slow to arrive. Will definitely eat here again."

  • "CiNE has a great selection the traditional Mexican food with the modern flair to it but it also has a completely other section that comes from a French inspired chef so some of the dishes are a little off the beaten path of what you usually look for with Mexican but variety is a good thing right?"

  • "Had dinner there over the weekend and overall it was pleasant. The salsa was terrific, but warning, the taste stays in your mouth for hours! 4 out of the 6 dishes we had were very good; we mostly did appetizers. And the service was terribly slow....so if you're in a rush, this is not a good place to go. So slow that we ended up cancelling the last dish we were waiting on because we were no longer hungry after 15+ minutes after the initial round of food. We would go again to try a few other dishes that sounded good and with plenty of time to sit around."

  • "Good food. Enjoyed the appetizers, esp the fresh guacamole. Chicken fajitas were tasty. Had enough for lunch the next day, still delicious. My dining partners all enjoyed their meals, too: carne asada, fish tacos and hanger steak. The special margaritas were wonderful. (pineapple, mango...) Only complaint was that we, a party of four, were seated at a large table, straight in from the door, and we were freezing! We had to keep on our coats through part of the meal. We had reservations, wish we'd gotten a table off to the side."

  • "This was our second trip to CiNe. First with a group and this time with another couple. Both times the food, service and experience were great. Excellent Margaritas!"

  • "We went here to try new local places. Walking in it had a great vibe, lighting, music. We were excited for the potential, but once we started eating the disappointments began. The drinks were super sweet. The sangria was carbonated,and bland. The chips (store quality), and salsa were OK. The ceviche was overly sweet (there is a theme here) and had zero acid or citrus. My wife's Tacos were OK. My Carne Asada was a disaster. First its a full-sized steak rather than the flat one you'd expect.It didn't have any seasoning, was topped with super sweet onions (again, a theme), and sat in a 'chimichurri' sauce that tasted like EVOO mixed with parmesan and herbs for color. It wants to be upscale mexican but you need food to go with the atmosphere."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "While the food and service was good. It was over priced. The margaritas were three quarters ice. Not worth the nine dollars they are charging. Hard to get in and out of the booths. The décor upscale and inviting."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Not bad, but not traditional Mexican food. They attempt to put a spin on traditional dishes but don't hit the mark for those who like Mexican done in a more traditional way. A little pricey for what you get."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We found the service to be inatentive at best. We had to ask for chips and water for our table. Food quality was overshadowed by the consistent lack of quality service. The various drinks were excellent however that service was also marginal. I am hoping that this is a one time experience and perhaps if we elect to go back we will have a better experience. However, given the number of high-quality restaurants in the area and in Chicagoland we doubt that we will venture there again."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at CiNe and especially appreciated the servers recommendation for a smoky sipping tequila. We chose to sit in the bar and probably wouldn't do that again because it was very loud and the acoustics made it difficult to hear my dining partner who was just across the high top table, a couple of feet away. We will definitely return"

  • "Being It Was A Busy ''Ocassion'' Day'' It went Very Well, Didnt Wait More Than 10 Min For Our Seating Under Prior Reservations, Our Waitress Was Very Helpful In Our Appetizers, Dinner Selections, And Also Drinks. The Carnitas Quesadillas Where Mouth Watering! My Drink Of The Evening Was The Mango Margarita, Very Well Executed..It Was Not Tangy Or Acidic Like Most Places Have Them."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was quite tasty and innovative.. The service left much to be desired.. We were there for 2 1/2 hrs!! I ordered a second drink and it took 25 min to arrive and it was wrong."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was good overall... appetizers were nice... chips and salsa were absolutely amazing... enchiladas were okay... i certainly have had better fajitas... meet was bulky, tortillas were very very thin..."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was outstanding. The service, although very friendly, was SSLLOOW! This would be a no-brainer if you improved the time. Asked multiple time for various things. I acknowledge this is not your everyday tacqueria, but the timing and responsiveness to customers needs to be improved."

  • "One thing I am disappointed about is that I didn't get my points twice even after reserving with open table."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "My wife's was very good (to her). Mine was pretty lacking in flavor (the Chimichanga meat was extremely dry and bland), and we all had stomach problems after the fact. My experience here has been hit or miss. Service, however, was great."

  • "We visited a cold day with a party of three. Perhaps the cold have held the customers, but while other restaurants were packed on Friday, but we discovered why they were not. Two drinks, soup, and an entree were over $70 per person. While the food was just fine, not outstanding, not worth the money. Loud, average service, average food, not worth the money."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This was my third time at Cine and it seemed like they were just "off" this time. They didn't have menus for us when we sat down. They were out of wine that we ordered. Once we ordered it took what seemed like forever for our food to arrive. Once the food came my 4 year old son got the wrong thing :( Overall just not a great night for them. I would try it again, but not with guests."

  • "Upscale menu and ambience. The chef really knows what she is doing. Elements of French fusion on the menu. Very special."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Food was excellent, new Mexican mixed with the classics but all done very well. The area is devoid of good Mexican, Cine fills that void well."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "It was our first time there we went with another couple and all of us can't wait to go back. Our server was a great, she was very helpful and accomodating. The food beyond words, the best ever, and we tried a little of several dishes. There are not many upscale Mexican restuarants in the suburbs so this is a true gem. Will be back soon and often."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Our Saturday night dinner at CINE was decent but not spectacular. I tried the fish tacos and skirt steak tacos. Clearly the fish tacos were the best. The atmosphere is lovely but service can be slow. Burritos were quite large. My recommendation would be the fish tacos."

  • "Our food as always, was quite delicious. Our server, Jen, was very attentive and gave us all of the info we needed to make our dinner choices. We will be back...."

  • "Traveling the Unites States coast to coast , I have been lucky to have been to many great restaurants. I really don't have a top list of restaurants, but do have my "must go to's." CiNe is absolutely one of them right her in my backyard. From the great food, to the friendly service I highly recommend CiNe for a great eclectic Mexican experience! This will without a doubt be the local restaurant that I will entertain visiting guests for now on!"

  • "Our friends had recommended this place and we are glad for that.. The food was great as far as taste and presentation. Our service girl Dia was very helpful andopen for suggestions. We will definitely be visiting CiNe again"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "I would highly recommend CiNe to all my friends. It's a very modern twist on Mexican without going overboard. I had their shrimp tacos which where delicious! Manga margaritas are best around! I will say that their portion size is little bit on a smaller side but still plenty food. Our service was little slow and sloppy but we did dine on New Year's Eve and that may had something to do with it. I will definitely be returning for a second serving..."

  • "My husband and I and a couple friends came here and it was wonderful! Great Service and the food was excellent! The drinks are unique, and made with real juices! The atmosphere was prefect and it is beautifully decorated! I really enjoyed my corn soup with a grilled scallop in the middle! It was full of flavor and delicious! I tried the spicy pomegranate margarita and it was the best drink I think I have ever had. We will be attending here again really soon!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "My friend and I started with the Mexican nachos which were very tasty! They didn't come with meat but instead a think black bean sauce that was very nicely seasoned. For drinks we had the CiNe Margaritas which are basically classic Margaritas but a bit sweeter than I would have liked; still very good as we had two rounds! For our entrées I ordered the Verde enchiladas and my friend ordered two kinds of tacos. Each was very tasty and presented well, but the meat in both of our dishes was slightly dry. Nothing that couldn't be solved with a little sour cream however. Our server was bubbly with a great personality and attentive. We can't wait to go back and try something else!"

  • "We dined there last Saturday night 12-7-13 for a birthday dinner with friends. I had heard mixed reviews, but we were all pleasantly surprised with the quality and imagination of the menu. The service was very good our server displayed excellent knowledge of the menu and even had several good recommendations. The only minor complaint I had was it seemed cold in the restaurant, other than that we all enjoyed the dinner very much and will definitely be coming back."

  • "We visited Cine for lunch last Friday and truly enjoyed our experience. The décor of the restaurant, built within the old Hinsdale Theater building, is inviting yet modern. The food was fantastic as well. I'd recommend Cine for anyone looking for something exceptional and a little different from the norm."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "I have to give Cine a lukewarm review. Our reservations were for 11:30AM. The hassle of trying to find a place to park in Hinsdale is a real reason that I avoid that town as much as possible. You have to keep running back to fill the meters and cannot enjoy either shopping, or dining. That said, our food was very slow in coming out and when it did, it was tepid at best. I always feel safer when my food arrives pipping hot from the kitchen, and then, if I choose to let it cool, it's my choice. This is the third time I have dined at Cine. ONly because friends want to try it, do I return. That will not be the case this time. I've had it with them. I feel the food is very inferior."
