Fabulous food and great drinks. Not seated on the patio but had a nice table near the corner. Restaurant was somewhat loud with people having fun! The smoked onion soup was like nothing I have ever tasted. We all sampled each other’s meals and there wasn’t one miss. We bought the cookbook! Would return here without hesitation.

Where to start, everything was truly above expectations. I’ve heard for years that gnocchis were little pillows of deliciousness, usually I find them to be more like mini perogies...not these , every bite was perfection! The servers recommended wines were just yummy, but every dish we had was so wonderful and the dessert something I never expected to experience on this continent.
Floating islands, a miracle of merengue, look it up!
God Bless the chefs, thank you!

Absolutely. Never disappointed when dining at Cin Cin. This time our dinner experience was over the top.
The beet salad was an amazing starter. However, our main course which was the Arctic Char was the best we have ever had. The combination of the Char, mashed potatoes, grilled fennel, capers and topped with a very delicate sauce wow what an experience. We knew we had an amazing meal because we talked about it for days after. Thanks to the creative Chefs.

We had a very nice waiter and enjoyed the food. The only negative was that there were many stairs and no elevator. Due to my friends and I having physical difficulties, I couldn't recommend the restaurant to all of my friends. Based solely on food and service I could do so.

A absolutely top-notch experience. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars for ambience is that the restaurant was PACKED and very loud where we were first seated. However, we asked if there was a quieter section and were accommodated with complete graciousness.

We started with a selection of cured meats and pickled vegetables as well as a drink. I have no idea how they got that much fragrance out of the orange twist in my dry Martini & Rossi but I spent as much time sniffing it as I did drinking it!

For dinner, one of my companions had the Bolognese pasta, one had the seafood pasta and I had a lemon risotto with sea scallops, and all of the dishes were excellent.

The food is SO good and the service is even better - from being greeted at the door to being ushered out, everyone there seems bent on making one feel special and welcome. Our server was lovely. They have a bible-length wine list so I relied on her knowledge heavily to choose. The wine was decanted at the bar and our glasses were filled promptly. When our entrees were served, two servers from the kitchen area came out and presented them to us, and did not have to ask who had ordered what - these things don't make or break a meal for me but it speaks to the detail and dedication of the staff.

I could not recommend CinCin more highly.

Excellent experience, service fantastic, friendly and attentive but not overbearing or obsequious. Mezzaluna pasta with walnuts just amazing, sablefish cooked perfectly, so moist! Scallop risotto a real standout. Only the 24 oz ribeye for two didn't bowl us over, not overly flavourful or tender. You'll surely have a memorable meal.

This was my first visit to CinCin. I’ve always wanted to check it out and I was told such great things about it. It exceeded my expectations. Our server was knowledgeable and sweet. Being that Ive been apart of the service industry for over 11 years, I am a bit of a tough critic when it comes to what I feel is great service. I was super happy with our whole experience. I had mentioned when I made the reservation that we were coming in to celebrate my graduation and the manager came by asked us how everything was so far and then handed me a cute little letter congratulating me, which I thought was a great touch. They even gave us dessert and it had CONGRATULATIONS writing on the plate. My fiancé and I shared the beef tartare, Parmesan soufflé and the gnocchi and all three were amazing. My mother’s bday is coming up and I know where I’m taking her .

NEW LAMB DISH - DISAPPOINTING. Service was exceptional but the meals were not up to normal CinCin quality. The new Lamb dish seems to be off in many ways (taste, texture thumbs down) - bring back the rack of lamb. Being an Italian Restaurant - you need an amazing Lamb dish.

Cin Cin is an excellent restaurant which serves excellent food but similar to some other restaurants have come up with the idea that customers want music with their dinner without ever asking them.The vast majority of people go to dinner with their wives,their friends,business associates etc. and the main thing that is common they are out to have a dialog with their guests.We eat out every day and thus are exposed to many restaurant environments.People have not come out to listen to music unless they are attending a ooncert.Thus why in earth do these restaurants insist on playing music.We asked three times for the music to be lowered and three times it did not happen.There are many other restaurants who do not have this music problem and we will tend to go there.Have Cin Cin do a survey of their customers and print it in the Top Table newsletter as I would like to see the results.

We were visiting Vancouver this past weekend and decided to go to CinCin and made reservations a few weeks ahead of our arrival. We’ve also been to the restaurant before. Our table was ready when we got there, our server was extremely friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. Overall, a great night.
