 (Portland)·Dined 2 days ago

It was our first time to BC and we flew in from Portland, OR, USA for 2 nights for my partners birthday for shopping and fine dining. I read so many great reviews about CinCin and because my partner loves Italian food, I knew immediately that I had to bring him here. From the young lady opening the door upon arrival, to the host greeting us with such warmth, we knew right away I made a great decision. I requested a table on their heated patio which overlooks the famed Robson street, and they gave us a table right on the edge of the patio. We were greeted immediately with water and the manager stopped by to wish Chris a happy birthday as well as drop off a signed card from the Sous Chef also wishing Chris a happy birthday. Our server Mike V. was such a delight and created and provided a fun, warm, and entertaining dining experience. Chris enjoyed delicious cocktails that were recommended by Mike, and I enjoyed a delicious Barbera D' Alba wine by the glass for both our appetizer and our main course. The food was nothing short of amazing as was the service. Mike really made it a special evening for us with light conversation and his attention to detail with service. On our way out, the host and the manager bother departed us, and the manager shook both our hands and wished us a great evening. We were already expecting a fabulous dining experience, so we were not shocked when it happened, but we were so grateful and appreciative of how amazing everything was. If you ever get a chance to make it to BC, or if you live in BC, do yourself a favor and dine at CinCin. It was and is a night to remember. Cheers to the entire team of CinCin for delivering an unforgettable experience. Chris and I raise a glass to all of you, and say CinCin! =)

I would describe our experience at CinCin as very expensive (almost $500 for four people) and the food was underwhelming; definitely not value for money.

Service and ambiance was wonderful, the wine list was great, but the food was definitely medium, and for the price, I was disappointed. My mushroom risotto had lots of flavour but was way overcooked, and appies were mediocre. For the price of the restaurant, I was expecting more in terms of food quality

Fantastic experience overall. Food was great, ambiance was great, and everything went well. But by far the best part of the experience is the service. From the multiple hostesses and coat checkers making you feel extremely welcome, to the amazing servers that are ever present but un-obstrusive, to each individual who carries themselves with confidence and continues to improve your experience. The service was so unbelievably good that we almost forgot to talk about the food on the drive home.

Best Italian restaurant we've been to, and probably the best service we've ever received. We'll be back soon.

The service and food was good. The wine list is very extensive.
No elevator for those that are disabled or find stairs challenging.
Overall, I would recommend it; however, you gotta be ready to spend big bucks.
It is overpriced, but in saying that, Robson street does have very high rent.

CinCin was on the list of favourite Vancouver restaurants from several friends. After my recent experience I can see why.
Service was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
Food was excellent and served in a timely fashion.
Atmosphere was cozy.
I would recommend CinCin to anyone wanting a predictably excellent experience.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at CinCin on a Friday night. We had made a reservation a week in advance. We had a great table on the enclosed patio with views of the fairylights in the trees on Robson St. I had marked on our online reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we sat, the manager approached us and gave us a handwritten notecard from the executive chef congratulating us. This was such a lovely touch and a great way to kick off our meal. We started by sharing the parmesan souffle, which was cooked perfectly and so delicious. I had the corn risotto was my entree, which was fantastic. I especially loved the parmesan crackling. My boyfriend had the chorizo sausage pasta for his entree, which was nice and spicy. The handmade pasta was great. For dessert, we shared the caramel pannacotta. I loved the addition of the caramelized apples. With our bill, we received two petit fours for free with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate in chocolate. It was such a lovely surprise. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive all night. We had a fantastic time at CinCin and it was the perfect restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The food was amazing and we loved all the extra touches that made our night special. We will definitely be going back in the future.

The quality of some dishes like the Char fish and lamb are really good. The pasta dishes are average. Nice selection of wines and knowledgeable staff to help you choose the right one. The practice is they automatically charge 18% for groups more than 6 which I personally have issue with. Also they bring sparkling water and ask the first time if you want it, and top up it regularly so sometimes you do not get a chance to say, no and obviously they charge you at the end. If you ask for regular water the top up does not happen as regularly. I found that practice unethical.

Food is amazing. Just the right amount of smoke - never overpowers the other flavors. They understand balance. Don't miss the tagliatelle with ragu and the close -to -perfection lemon pistachio dessert. Service is traditional ;very professional, but not stuffy and not over- friendly either. Would recommend without hesitation.

Avoid: Not worth it. Based on reviews, I was looking forward to dining solo on a Friday evening. Evening began just fine. I had a reservation and was seated right away and was offered and served a drink. Things went downhill from there:

After ordering food, I asked to speak with the sommelier. The waitress told me that she would send him over. She then returned and asked if I was ordering by the glass or by the bottle--and if I had an idea about what I wanted. I told her that I might order by the glass, and I might order and half bottle or a bottle. I found it bizarre that I was being prescreened for the opportunity to speak with the sommelier. Never have I encountered this in a restaurant that holds itself out as a fine dining establishment.

From that point, things went OK until my main course was served; about the same time that the restaurant was getting busy. At that point, all service disappeared. I wanted to finish the last of my half bottle of wine, but there was no wait staff to assist (and the decanter was not on the table). I stopped eating for a full 20 minutes, trying to get the attention of my waitress--and then ANY staff member. I never got the wine.

Basically, the restaurant seems able to deliver some service until it gets very busy, and then it all falls apart, ruining what might have been a nice evening.

There are a lot of great restaurants in Vancouver. This is not one of them. After a delightful lunch on the same day at The Stable House (great food, really good wines and great advice on the wine from the sommelier) inner at CinCin was a huge disappointment.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here, and I must say, it was an overall disappointing experience. Although the restaurant itself is beautiful, and the service was good, the food quality suffered, and in my opinion, above-average priced Italian food should always be delicious. We began with two appetizers: the beat salad and the squid. The beat salad was very good, but the squid arrived lukewarm and was completely flavourless. In addition, the borlotti beans did not compliment the dish whatsoever. For the main course, we chose the lobster linguine, and the risotto. The risotto was quite tasty, but the linguine was sub-par. Although the pasta itself was cooked perfectly (al dente), the tomato sauce was nothing special, and it completely overpowered the flavour of the lobster. On a positive note, the elderflower kakkoii cocktail was fabulous, and the wine we ordered was good. Unfortunately the cons in regards to the food outweighed any pros for us, and for that reason, we will not be returning to CinCin.

We were somewhat disappointed after hearing good things about CinCin. It took a long time for our drinks to be served. The pasta dishes (2 types) were OK, but not outstanding, though the duck was very good. Perhaps we didn't choose the best entrees.
