Really enjoyed our first experience at CinCin. Food was excellent, as was the service and selection of fine wines. Our only complaint would be that tables are a little tight and it's very loud. The 2 of us felt like were yelling at each other. We'd definitely go back but not sure the noise level would be for everyone.

I was quite disappointed with the lacking service-especially at the price we paid! Our server did not check in with us to see how anything was, and we were often left sitting for lengthy periods of time wondering where he was. The food was great, but I did not enjoy having our server clean our table while we were still sitting there without so much as an "excuse me."

The food and service was outstanding as usual. It was busy, as they are only open for lunch for the holidays so it was a little bit noisy which is to be expected. We shared five courses and everything was delicious and perfectly executed. Lovely cocktails, wines paired well and digestifs finished the afternoon off. CinCin never disappoints.

Our server was friendly, our food was fine, but nowhere near outstanding. For the price, this restaurant lacked ambience, style, and inspiring cuisine. We wouldn't return.

Food was amazing! We absolutely loved the grilled humboldt squid. It had an amazing charred flavour and was cooked to perfection. The lamb rack was so deliciously tender. The veggies and olive oil mashed potatoes were also perfect. The olive oil used had incredible flavour.

This was our 3 time eating there in the past few years, for dinner. We were celebrating my husbands 65th birthday (his actual BD is Dec 25). Over the years there hasn't been any change in the great service, food and staff. We will definitely be back again and also will spread the word if someone asks us for a recommendation on a place that they would be leaving with a WOW experience.

It had been over ten years since I last visited CinCin, and remembered ordering a pizza for lunch.
It's now no longer on the menu, since the kitchen acquired its new wood fired oven!
However, our Linguini Lobster and Pork Belly were out of this world! The two desserts were also a delight, and the service was great. We loved being seated in the balcony, and it was a perfect evening,
topped by a beautiful bottle of a Californian pinot noire.

The service has gone down. This was one of my favourite restaurants, but this time I was there, my food was not cleared in a timely fashion, I had empty water glass most of the night, wine wasn’t refreshed, food was not that good, restaurant getting old, couldn’t accommodate a 2 oz glass wine. Also, there’s no valet and it’s not accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. Don’t think I will go back for a long time.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at CinCin and they couldn’t have been more awesome. The minute we stepped in, we were greeted with a “Happy anniversary!” And every time staff approached our table, they would greet us! We also got a handwritten card from the chef! The service was first class and the food was just the same. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked and delicious. We started with the tagliatelle the linguini with lobster and casarecce with spicy chorizo. The pasta was cooked perfectly and, as I described it to my wife, “taste like we’re back in Italy”. We also ordered the lamb that just melts in your mouth. We can’t say enough good things about cincin and we can’t wait to go back.

We chose this restaurant after hearing many positive reviews. When we arrived, we were shocked to realize that we had to climb a number of stairs. We were told there was no elevator. As I have mobility issues, it was very difficult for me to climb the stairs and worrisome for my companions to make sure that I didn’t fall. I persisted and it was worth the effort but I won’t go again. Please let it be known on the website that the restaurant has accessibility issues and how many stairs need to be climbed.

Decent restaurant, food was more western cuisine with minor Italian influence vs the other way around. Overall including atmosphere, food and service lacked Passion seemed a lot more mechanical. Positive take away, good wine selection, speed of service and willingness to work with requests.

Should go here more often, every time I do, I enjoy the experience. Being on Robson, it is off the beaten track for good restaurants, however, it is well worth the diversion.
