From first entering the restaurant
we were greeted with a smile and were taken straight to our table. We sat down and it didn't take the waiter more than 2 minutes to introduce himself and ask what we would like for drinks. He gave recommendations and we ordered. The drinks were brought back in a timely manner which was great. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu and specials, we could really tell that he had eaten everything on the menu and was very passionate about food and his job. Finally, as it was my wife's B'day, a birthday desert was brought out beautifully arranged, such a great end to the night. We will definitely be back."

The service was excellent and the
waiter and sommelier were very helpful. My friend and I ordered different items and we wanted to make sure that the wine pairing was approrpriate for both dishes. I had ordered the Young Romaine Leaves salad as well that was grilled with a classic Caesar garlic-lemon dressing. Unfortunately my idea of classic Caesar and their was different and I didn't like the dish at all. They were very understanding and actually removed the item from the bill. I didn't ask them to do that but I was impressed that they had. Although this was the first time at this restaurant, it won't be the last."

As always, Cioppino's is all that
it should be. Cannot fault anything here, from their extensive wine list, great specials, and amazing classics."

Went here for my birthday dinner
as we were recommended by family and it did not dis-appoint! We had an amazing meal and an amazing bottle of wine recommended by our server. This is definitely a restaurant on the pricey side but it is well worth it."

It was an absolutely lovely
evening. It had been years since we had been to the restaurant. Sometimes, restaurants get tired but not Cioppino's, the food and service was superb."
Dined on 1/18/2014
Don't even know how to express my
gratitude and overall satisfaction with the amazing folks in this restaurant. We are frequent diners in many different outing venues in the city, and Cioppino's by far is the most consistently amazing overall experience all around. I often order off-the menu items, and the chef personally comes out to the table to make sure what I ordered is to my liking! Superb place to visit."

I'm Italian and believe me finding
authentic Italian place to dine is not very easy. Firstly, walking into Cioppino's is awesome as they take your coat. Service is efficient yet informing. Kitchen is open and you can see everything happening including Chef Cioppino himself providing direction. I had the dungeoness crab salad, perfectly done, not overly greasy. My husband had porcini and chestnut soup and it was smooth, creamy and perfectly blended. Meal of Osso Bucco - Divine! Perfect portions, perfectly done. Wild Boar done 3 ways was mouth watering as well. Treat yourself to the cannolli for desert, because I've had them from Sicily and Cioppino's was exactly what I remember from Palermo!!! A must go for italian and food lovers."

Cioppino's is a very special
restaurant. The food, service, and wine choices are impeccable. The ambience is wonderful - urban chic with a comfort factor. This is the perfect place for celebrating a special occasion or for being good to yourself and friends."
Dined on 11/14/2013
Went here as part of a wonderful
night; I read reviews online and cioppinos didn't disappoint. We had a lovely time slowly eating our small fancy meals, laughing at the outrageous wine list. Great place for a high end dinner, the chefs and servers wait on you hand and foot! Definitely want to dress up and enjoy the exquisite cuisine! Nice and close to the yaletown sky train station. Expensive, but worth it for a special occasion!"
Dined on 11/15/2013
The service was phenomenal and my
overall experience was perfect. The beef carpaccio was very fresh and the lamb (and homemade mint jelly) was delicious. My girlfriend had penne with lobster...the sauce was delicious and our server removed the lobster from its shell for her, which was great service. Overall, my only complaint was the portion size could've been a bit larger for the pasta. And they made us a special dessert to commemorate our anniversary, which was very nice."
Dined on 11/6/2013
Great food, slightly on the higher
end of pricing. For the two times that I went to Cioppino's, service was always a bit slow however the quality of the food definitely makes up for it."
Dined on 7/18/2013
Our waiter was a little stiff. Not
sure anyone appreciated his need to demonstrate his superior knowledge, at the expense of the guest. Took my wife for her birthday, at considerable expense. The experience was one waiter short of enjoyable."

Best Italian restaurant in North
America by far. Beats, Batali, White, etc., etc."

This was our first visit to
Cioppino's Mediterranean Grill in the Yaletown area of Vancouver. Food, service and ambience were all superb. We will return on our next visit to Vancouver."

We had been referred to this
outstanding eating experience by the owner of La Boneta. We had eaten there as well. Two amazing dinning experiences in Vancouver. Jan Barrali"
Dined on 9/25/2013
The restaurant food quality
surpassed expectations. The bread and hummus were complementary and outstanding. The rib eye steak was buttery soft and flavourful. The lobster, shrimp and scallop dish was perfectly prepared. When our attentive waiter stepped up to remove the lobster from the shell, I was his. He also brought a birthday dessert with a candle and chocolate greeting, which was subtle and classy. It was astounding that there were so many people working as hosts, servers and kitchen helpers. One couldn't help feeling provided for. We shall return."
Dined on 9/24/2013
I have been to several fine dining
places and this was by far the best so far, almost everything was perfect and flavoured wonderfully the only exception was my peas which were not without flavour but just not as outstanding as the rest of my meal. If you are looking for an amazing wine list come here! There were pages and pages of wines of all kinds. Service was again almost perfect but our waiter seemed confused with our bill and left to ask someone about things as there were four of us and we were splitting it two and two and using a travellers cheque which he had not seen before? I would highly reccomend this as a place to fine dine, very well done Cioppinos! You are one of the few places in my mind that is worth every penny spent!"
Dined on 9/12/2013
The food and service were
outstanding -- wanted to taste as much as we could on the menu -- without a doubt the best Italian food in the lower mainland and frankly maybe in Canada-- can t put into words how excellent every dish was the flavors were sublime. A lovely experience and one we will not pass up next visit to Vancouver -- we'll have to come more than once the next time around."
Dined on 9/5/2013
Absolutely amazing experience.
From the decor, to the attentive service to the food. The Chef took time to say hi, drop off some food as well as pop by for some jokes in between courses. Our server was in a league of his own. I cannot say enough good things about how this evening transpired. I only wish I lived in Vancouver to take in this restaurant as much as often. For once the hype of a Chef/Restaurant is matched by the experience. Kudos."

What a wonderful time we had at
Cioppino's last Saturday night. A friend recommended this restaurant to us and it was by far the best dining experience we have had in Vancouver. All of our courses were absolutely wonderful!! Thank you!!"
Dined on 8/25/2013
The food was outstanding. The
table service was excellent, warm and friendly while still formal in just the right way. I was disappointed in two ways. When I made my reservation I requested a quiet romantic table for my wife and I. We were shown to a table in the middle of the room and near the kitchen. It seems my request was not important. When I complained the hostess could have been a bit more gracious. We found a table at the front which was better. The second disappointment was the limited selection of gin and no cocktail list. Still the meal was very good and the service at our table was perfect. I will return."
Dined on 8/23/2013
Wow, what a wonderful place to go
for a dinner whether it is for a special occasion, for a group, or just dinner. Service was superior, full attention, man you got that, Food was just so superior, it was awesome. My only complaint was the vegetables had too much salt, otherwise, our evening went perfectly. Dessert my husband enjoyed superbly. We shall be back and definitely will recommend to other friends and family. My wine and cocktail was also perfect."
Dined on 8/18/2013
I took my husband at this
restaurant for his birthday and it was amazing. Setting was very romantic with dim lights and soft music in the background. Service was excellent, we had two people looking after us we never felt unattended. Food quality was amazing. They surprised us by serving us complimentary dessert which was unexpected and a very pleasant surprise. We would definitely go back again"
Dined on 6/20/2013
I would say this is one of my
favourite restaurants in Vancouver. The restaurant really puts it together - ambience, food and service are accounted for in great detail. I don't think I can think of one bad thing to say about this restaurant. I would rate it favourably to similar priced restaurants such as Hawksworth and Blue Water."
Dined on 7/14/2013
Overall very good! Great location
and good ambiance."

Four of us dined at Cioppino while
visiting Vancouver after our Alaska cruise. The meal was amazing. I had the mussels as an appetizer - prepared with an Asian accent. Then I had the Fraser Park Duck two ways - excellent presentation, prepared just perfectly. For dessert, I shared two scoops of gelato with my wife. Tasted like the best gelato in Florence or Rome. What made the meal exceptional was our waiter Patrick. He has been there since the restaurant opened 14 years ago. He made some excellent recommendations, helped select a wine, and saw to our every request. It seemed like he was always there, but he actually gave us plenty of space and time. He was delightful. If they have a class for waiters, he should teach it."

Enjoyed a nice evening. Food very
good and nice atmosphere. Up there with many good restaurants but stil not our favorite."
Dined on 6/22/2013
Very odd that this Italian
restaurant now plays country music as well as up tempo hip hop music during the dining experience."
Dined on 6/23/2013
Enjoyed the evening very much.
Based selection of this restaurant on the Vancouver Restaurant Awards and other open table comments. I must complement our server Patrick who added to the enjoyment of a great meal with his exceptional service and sense of humour. I will comment that service was consistant regardless of clientele: ie a group or executives vs. a casual family gathering all received attentive good service.. The food was very enjoyable and my only comment was that the portions were very small. I ordered the neptune cannilloni and expected more than 2 ; my companion ordered the gnocchi and also received a very small portion. Wine selection was outstanding. Desserts quite delicious."
Dined on 6/16/2013
Cioppino's is an exceptional
restaurant after all of these years. The food & service is outstanding & wine list that rivals a small liquor store. Personal touches by the servers & Pino coming out to say hello & ask how your dinner is. Not inexpensive, but a lovely romantic night out. You will leave stuffed."
Dined on 6/15/2013
An excellent experience dinning at
Cioppino's. The food and service were exceptional. I would recommend this restaurant if you're in the mood for a nice dinning experience."
Dined on 6/11/2013
Having finally made it to
Cioppino's, I can honestly say that this was probably the best Italian meal we have ever had in Vancouver. Beautiful presentation of all courses, and the flavour/quality was outstanding. Service is also impeccable. It is pricey, but so worth it, especially for a special occasion dinner. We will definitely be back!"
Dined on 6/2/2013
I read some mixed reviews on this
on-line some great some not, I found this to be one of the top 10 restaurants I've been to in 30 years (Paris, DC, Seattle, SF, Toronto, etc.), in short lots of great place on my top 10. Just an outstanding restaurant, the Chef was around and sociable, asking questions, staff very knowledgable and helpful and the food was just fantastic, very nice. Wine list is great and the waiter was helpful finding an outstanding BC Pinot that was priced right for our budget."
Dined on 5/30/2013
Lovely ambiance, romantic, with a
traditional feel. Service was good. The food was good but not outstanding. Had a lovely evening, but probably wouldn't go again. You can find better food in this town at literally half the price."
Dined on 5/26/2013
Great wine menu. Dont like the
award winning porcini chestnut soup though (too salty). Others are all good."
Dined on 5/17/2013
When i visited with my girlfriend,
we greeted warmly and brought into a very classy dinning area where there was a vast collection of pantings and wine. We were seating and our server immediately brought us fresh bread and gave us the menu. We were guided through the entire menu with every detail was great to see that our server had a great knowledge of the entire menu!! Not to mention he had an amazing Italian accent. Our food was served in good time and tasted phenomenal! Washrooms were clean and comfortable as well. One negative was the amateur weightier dropping things constantly which interrupted my dinning experience briefly, but our server made up for whatever they didnt."
Dined on 5/15/2013
Superb meals for everyone at the
table, great wine recommended by the sommelier . Pricey but worth it."
Dined on 5/10/2013
Best food I've had in a long
time. Good value and superb wine list. Wine list is over whelming on it's own but they know their wine and quickly get you to the price / quality area that you are comfortable with. Their recommendations were great."
Dined on 5/8/2013
Great food and highly attentive
staff. Would come back for sure. Also rare to see the head chef regularly talking with and checking in patrons."
