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.

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!

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.

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.

Great food, awesome service. Knowleable staff on their wine list.
Must try's: Deviled eggs, mushroom empanadas, beet salad, korean tacos. If you live in the area dont forget to ask for a Cin Cin Card for frequent diners. You'll receive emails for restaurant specials.

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!

The beef sliders and Korean tacos are to die for! Delicious and wide variety of small plates.
