My wife & I met some friends for a great evening out at Cin Cin....the service was terrific with a great & varied menu, my wife is a vegetarian. The food & drink & wine selections are really awesome. We have been going there since they opened & never had a bad experience, highly recommended.

Cin Cin can be rather loud but we were seated in a quieter room off the main dining room, away from the bar. Our waiter, Tyler, was fantastic. He made food recommendations - he knows the menu and the wines. We were surprised to see Fre wine (non-alcoholic) listed. We have never ever found a restaurant that has a non-alcoholic wine. It's the only kind of wine a member of our party can drink. We were delighted. We ordered small plates - the sliders and the mac 'n cheese are delicious as are the truffle fries. The roasted vegetables are fabulous. Tyler recommended bread pudding for dessert - great choice. Everything was so good. We will certainly be going back.

I suggested Cin Cin to some friends who had never tried it, saying that the food was delicious, service good and fair prices. Then we went. We went on a Wednesday night and it was not busy. However, we waited over 20 minutes for our first round of drinks. When ordering, the waitress started talking to someone passing by, completely ignoring the person who was trying to order. We waited 15 minutes for some bread that one of us wanted to go with our salad. Then another 15 minutes for a second beer.

The food was fine. But I ultimately had to apologize to the other couple for having suggested the restaurant. I'm not recommending it again. Service was truly terrible and there are no excuses - it was not a busy night.

Fabulous meal at Cin Cin! A busy Saturday night. Good thing we came ten minutes early for our 7PM reservation. I think we got the last table. Delish Mushroom Risotto, Salmon dinner and the sliders. Yum! Bread Pudding and Chocolate Cream for dessert. Fabulous!

Arrived early for Sat 6 pm reservation, so were able to take advantage of happy hour drink pricing. Ordered sliders and Korean tacos per reviews - very good, as was mac & cheese and truffle fries. Very lively, ergo, too noisy! Glad we weren't seated at tables using upholstered stools with a 3-4 inch back - no support and would have been very uncomfortable for dining. We'll go back for the food, wine selection, and great service.

I have never been here on weekends, but found the restaurant very pleasant and appealing to those with a varied taste for cuisine. No rushed feeling and while it is not a quiet place, you can have a fun conversation . . . afterall, isn't that what going out is for?

On the positive side, a reservation for eight was accepted and a seemingly reasonable 20% was added to the tab to cover the tip. The salmon and scallops were excellent. The waiter was apparently a rookie i.e., he forgot to take one guest's order, forgot to bring another guest's drink order, and brought one guest a cold pork tenderloin, not once, but twice. For the cold food order, the manager dropped the corkage fee for the table and provided a free dessert to the one guest. We have dined a Cin Cin before and enjoyed the experience. With so many great restaurants in the area, I doubt we'll return.

Went for dinner the evening of the World Series, it looked like a very slow night, waited at reception for 5 minutes. No one to be found, maybe they were all watching the ballgame. Finally someone saw us, I checked in for my opentable reservation and was seated, only to get an opentable message saying. I was a "no show", so make sure you watch the receptionist check you in. I hope the situation has been worked out.

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!

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
