The branzino was fresh and cooked to perfection... loved it.
A little disappointing was the tiramisu, not even close to what my grandma used to make.
Overall a good experience, I will go again, just no dessert

Superior service, food properly prepared and good quality but just not the ‘wowing’ flavors I expect at this price point. Ambience fantastic as well.

We are frequently travelers to Canada from the US. CinCin was recommended by a friend. It was our first visit and we loved it! Amazing pasta. And the duck was terrific. We will definitely return to CinCin on our next visit to Vancouver.

One more shout out - to our server, Dave, from New Zealand. He was top notch.

Brought our toddler along for our anniversary dinner. Special of the day Halibut was a bit watery. Front desk lady might have been having a bad day from her distinct lack of welcome-smiles, while our waiter was great.

We found some weird aluminum(?) mesh in our Conchiglie (hidden in one "shell"). This was an absolutely unforgivable mishap from the kitchen, and luckily I was the one who took that bite instead of my son. I immediately let our waiter know, and he followed through with the standard procedure of offering replacement (which I declined), and comp'ing the dish as well as providing comp'd desserts.

Customer service here was great! The waitress for our table was very attentive. If you're a picky eater like me, this menu might be a bit tough to choose from. I ordered the lobster linguini; wasn't bad. Not the best pasta I've tried. Tasted nothing more than like tomato. Drinks can be a bit strong, but they'll adjust it for you if you aren't happy. I won't be back.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.!

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.
