We had not been to Cioppino's in almost 10 years, and had very fond memories of meals there. It was great to not be disappointed - the food was absolutely excellent from start to finish. Service is fast and un-obtrusive, though our server seemed distracted to the point of occasional inattentiveness (having to ask for dessert menus as they were not offered is a bad idea - they have great desserts). We had a table for 2 near the kitchen and if you want additional entertainment, I would recommend a similar spot - was quite fascinating to watch while chatting.

Awesome dinner. The food was delicious. We enjoyed outstanding tuna carpaccio (from Nagasaki and lightly seasoned), lobster linguini (sauce delicious and size was perfect), grilled sablefish (light with soy sabayon), and maple creme brûlée for dessert (perfect touch of maple). The service was friendly and attentive (why can’t I remember her name! Sorry!). Out server even provided us with a list of local restaurants near our hotel to enjoy during our stay (although we could eat here everyday!). A wonderful dining experience with some of the best food ever experienced.

An outstanding Italian Gourmet experience. We visit this restaurant at least once a month just to get our Italian fix of exceptional and exquisite pasta dishes and their classic secondo courses of lamb, duck, fish, plus more. When available their Foie Gras is to die for and so are their soups. In summary this place offers an amazing service, delicious food, and a collection of exceptional wines

Cioppinno's continues to be one of the Vancouver restaurants that all others are judged against. Outstanding food with great creativity and beautiful presentation. Everything is fresh, as local as possible and prepared perfectly. My duck was fantastic. The vegetarian in the group had the pasta feature and was very impressed. My wife had the cioppinno, loved it. The halibut was excellent as was the sturgeon. Appies included the lobster bisque, wild prawns (really good) beet and goat cheese salad and the mixed battered seafood. Desserts included maple syrup creme brulee, organic lemon tart and warm chocolate cake. All delicious and all very well presented. Service was attentive and professional. The room is very nice and the noise level is reasonable for a busy restaurant. We were able to converse without having to shout. Great time and highly recommended.

Excellent service. Main courses were very well done. Calimari appetizers were very tender.
Dessert was fabulous. We ordered the warm chocolate cake, cannolo and creme broulet. They were not overly sweet, which is perfect for us. We were also presented with a complimentary chocolate mousse because it was my wife's birthday. The mousse was also very tasty. My teenage kids did not appreciate this restaurant's food and preferred quantity over quality.

We were greeted by the owner and the waitress was exceptional. Asked if there was an occasion and gave a nice looking tasty dessert free of charge. The only fuuny thing was we couldnt locate the entrance and its tricky. The food was average with some good ones...wine was delightful though. I loved tge ambience of the setting.

We had an excellent meal and lovely evening. The waiter was friendly and attentive. Our food was exceptional. And to top it off, we were able to meet the chef. It was impressive to see the chef routinely walk through the dining room, talk to patrons and clear tables. We will definitely be back whenever in Vancouver!

The food and service was absolutely amazing - NEW FAVOURITE ITALIAN & MEDITERRANEAN RESTAURANT IN VANCOUVER. We ordered 4 appetizers to share and 4 main dishes - all had mouth-watering presentation at and tasted delicious. The servers were also very courteous and assisted with selecting drinks, deshelling seafood and splitting the shared appetizers. I highly highly recommend Cioppino's.

Service was stellar, as was the food. We were surprised it wasn’t busier, although we ate quite early (pre-show). It wasn’t even that busy when we left though. Mainly old people in there and tourists wearing grungy shorts.
The look of the room was pretty dated. I liked the darkness of the room but no matter how dim the lights are the ‘80’s terracotta is there. Lots of questionable art on the walls. The space could use an upgrade.
Food was fantastic. The ribeye was a dream! Can’t wait to go back. Wine list was deep too - and pricey.

The service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delightful. Hubby had a Beef dish with risotto. I had the fettuccine bolognese. We had a artichoke and tomatoes appetizer. The tomatoes were soaked in something yummy and amazing. Very tasty. We also had wine and dessert. ALL to die for. Ambience was super beautiful. Wood cabinetry full of wine bottles surrounding you.

We have eaten here before with a better experience. Though we were among the first guests to arrive, teh hostess seated us in a high traffic area and when we asked to move to another table, she said she couldn't do it. The cocktails (other than martinis) were incredibly small. The wine list is huge but many bottles are priced at more than $1000!

It was our first night in Vancouver and we had read about Yaletown and this restaurant. It did not disappoint. We ate on the patio, enjoyed the vibrant scene of Yaletown and loved our dinner. The veal was outstanding. The wine list is impressive and knowledge of the waitstaff is impressive as well. Too bad I live in Virginia. I would go there once a week. Luckily we had a chance to experience a truly outstanding Vancouver restaurant.
Hats off to the owners and chefs.

Expecting five star dining we were treated to good but not excellent. The staff were friendly and reasonably attentive (though not stellar), the overall price point for the meal was substantially higher than it warranted. Vancouver has a lot of five star restaurants to choose from.

Cioppino’s has rapidly become our go-to destination for a special occasion. I love the specials featuring local in-season ingredients - we almost always end up ordering one or more of them instead of the menu items. As always, food was impeccable.
