I was not impressed with the food or the service. We were seated and we're not approached by our waiter or anyone else for about 7 minutes. I found the waiter to be rude as he made a couple of snide comments that I felt were not appropriate. The food was mediocre and over priced. We will not be going back.
good ambience, food and service-great wine list which was easy to navigate and server was well versed in it to recommend a good value one!
Great food, service and wine. Fine dining and in the higher price range but worth it.
Italian villa setting; gorgeous atmosphere. Perfect service; attentive yet unobtrusive.
Tried three appetizers( all outstanding. Cheese soufflé, beer tartare and the best pork belly ever. The pasta with chorizo was excellent. Not as keen on the Roman style huge flour gnocchi though sauce was very good.
Mains other than pasta are pricey. Sablefish was the least favourite. Large portion and skin was crisp, but had a fishy flavour and bland ‘crazy sauce’. All of us agreed we’ve had better. Chicken with truffles was most and tasty.
Beautiful desserts and we appreciated the attention to detail by chocolate writing on the plates for the two special occasions being celebrated.
Good coffee; ample wine snd cocktail selection.
Would definitely recommend.
Good food with excellent service and atmosphere. Good cocktails. Pasta was excellent. The portions are on the smaller side.
Our service was impeccable! I would come back based on that alone. Our cocktails and bread at the table were lovely as well, however I feel like the food was lacking flavour and for the price portions should have been bigger. My chicken was quite dry and bland, and my butternut squash soup was very average. The gnocchi was delicious but I just wish there was more of it and more mushrooms.
Very loud, it was hard to have a conversation.
I have been at this restaurant many,many times and obviously I would not come back if I did not like restaurant.
It was my two year anniversary with my girlfriend and I wanted to take her out somewhere special for our evening out as she had been previously and had enjoyed her dining experience. Unfortunately, there was a dentists large dinner party that had consumed much of the restaurant, which lead to an incredibly loud atmosphere, slow service, and followed by an incredibly small portion of the lobster linguini. This dish was incredibly unsatisfying and in my opinion had the value of a $2 can of red pasta sauce and $0.50 worth of pasta topped with a half ounce of lobster.. This was the worst value I have encountered in a long time and would not recommend this experience to any colleagues again. We had to head to Cactus Club next door afterwards to get enough food to feel mildly satisfied.
Nice experience great service, good food and sizeable portions without compromising on quality.
A warm and intimate spot perfect for a special occasion or just to spoil yourself.
We went to Cin Cin for my husband’s birthday. The service was incredible and ambiance was great for such an occasion. I had the crab ravioli to start and it was very good. My husband started with the lobster linguine and it was just average. The sauce was acidic and overall lacked flavour.
For our entree I had the sable fish which was superb. It was accompanied with rice and vegetables. I would definitely recommend it. My husband had the 6oz beef tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection and very flavourful. Another great choice on the menu.
Overall we had a really good experience and would not hesitate to recommend this fine establishment.
It was a horrible experience. We will never return. The service was horrible spilling everything being served and the price was too expensive for the quality.
The service was amazing and the food was fantastic. I was disappointed when I called to see what the corkage fee was for a special bottle of wine we had been saving for our 20th anniversary was told $30. When we got our bill it came to $38.00. I did not like the fact we were told $30 then charged $38. This is only the second time we have used the corkage fee and the last one was $20 for a high end restaurant. Cin Cin is too high.
We had a wonderful dinner at Cin Cin. The atmosphere was perfect but I should have asked further details about my choice from our server as it wasn’t what I expected and didn’t really enjoy it. My son loved his lobster pasta dish though and we will certainly be back!
This was not the first time to CinCin's. Always enjoyed the food and good service. For such a noted resaurant in the city surprising it doesn't seem to have any standard of dress code, which quite spoils the ambiance when your seated next to people in joggers and t-shirts. Blankets for the patio and valet parking would be nice.!
Top notch Italian menu, with some Northwest produce touches too. Great B.C. and Italian wines.
This restaurant never fails to please. Food excellent and service is the best. This is worth the cost because you do get what you pay for!
staff was super attentive, pricy but worth it, the food was excellent (the cocktails too!) will definitely be back.
Great food, good recommendations for wine .Used to come quite often but not so much last couple of years,really feel quality of meals has been kicked up a couple of notch’s
Always our favourite spot! Yummy food, awesome service ! Thanks so much!
We do love CinCin. Downgraded to 4 stars. The food of our friends was cold. The noise level was so high we could barely hear each other. We’ve dined here several times before and while energetic this time the noise was over the top.
CinCin is a great restaurant and the food is uniformly good, but the service really makes or breaks it. The time before we had incredible, polite and accommodating service where everything just flowed. This time around the waiter was nice enough, but the flow of the entire meal was off and clunky. Little effort made whether they were interrupting a conversation and long period of time waiting, even though the restaurant was not nearly full at the time.
So we went from just amazed to 'good food...too bad about the service'. And walked out with a totally different point of view and not enthusiastic to come back. So many good restaurants in Vancouver that everything has to pull together or else not worth coming back again.
We were underwhelmed to say the least. The food was mediocre at best, but the prices certainly were not. We all left hungry, & disappointed in the food itself, & really cannot understand what all the fuss was about. We will not be returning.
A wonderful dinner. I would highly recommend it and look forward to returning!
Always a fantastic venue that will not disappoint especially for special occasions. Superb service and wonderful food and wine. Standouts of note we’re the lemon risotto, beet and burrata salad, squid, duck and lamb
Pasta was so average for an Italian restaurant
Also was very loud, not too kid friendly for that reason
Fantastic food and good service! Waiter was knowledgeable and recommended some great items. The Tagliatelle was fabulous as well as the roasted chicken. The Lemon brûlée was to die for! Wine was a little on the spendy side, but that did not detract from the overall experience. Will definitely be back!
Food was very good. The menu is a little short, but changes frequently we were told. Ambience quite and peaceful. Service was exceptional all around. A very nice evening for a celebration.
One of my favs for out of town guests
Great food and service. Will come back again! Highly recommended.
This place was amazing 10 years ago when I dined here for the first time. Now they have a new Executive Chef and it’s better then ever!!
We've been here many times and always enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. Our most recent visit was amazing - after a service issue (waiter spilled a plate of food on the table) - after moving us to a new table the manager came over and advised us the whole meal would be complimentary (food and drinks) - we really appreciated this but it was much more than necessary to make up for an accident.
Dined at Cincin over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The menu offered a wide range of dishes and the servers were great and knowledgeable about the food.
We ordered the Parmesan Souffle, Rib Eye steak and Pork Tenderloin. All were cooked to our liking. For dessert, we ordered the Hazelnut Truffle Opera Cake. It was very, very good and a perfect ending to our meal.
Overall, Cincin is a solid choice when you're in the area and are looking for something fancier. The only complaint I have would be that the tables are a bit close to one another and that you would probably end up eavesdropping on other people's conversations even if you didn't want to.
Everyone was still hungry when we left. Food was good the wine menu was large
Some of the food was hit and miss. Excellent server. Squid was well prepared. Prawns were mediocre. Pasta came piping hot but sauce was just ok. Fish was grilled nicely.
Such a good choice. Unique and yet homely. The wood grilled open kitchen concept was fun and the food and drinks were exceptional. Great choice for our business dinner
Sublime food, wonderful service (thanks, Daniel!), just a great all round experience.
Food was excellent, service was nicely paced. The atmosphere was lovely and conducive for conversation.
good food, excellent wait service! Wine list huge, however pricey.
