One of my best dining experiences in Vancouver so far.
It is more like a Italian than Mediterranean restaurant to me. The dining place is bright, simple and elegant, with open kitchen so that you can see clearly what's going on there ~ which do makes me remember Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen a little bit, but, don't expected any dramatic fighting like in TV show, in fact, everything is in perfect order and you may even possible to go and see their working yourself.
Waiter/ress are very well trained: polite, kind, and smart. They always show up on right time, never blabbering.
The bread is warm, good, but the jam - seems like butter mixed with egg & Oliver oil - is a little bit lack of flavor to me. Beef carpaccio is very traditional Italian style and very well seasoned, I like it very much. Another surprise is lobster bisque, it taste very lobster, and chopped vegetables inside even brings more layers, excellent job.
Osso Bucco, which is one of the most famous Italian dishes, is tender & jucy. I would give it a five star if they could serve at least one more bone with marrow. Valley Duck is perfect, with crispy skin & tender meat, have one cut, grab some sauce and enjoy a glorious piece of taste in your mouth - just like a symphony of Mozart. It is even greater because of the side dish - the fried rice is crunchy & tasty,and brings amazing balance, fantastic job.
As a recommendation, better order espresso for MontBlanc, It's a bit sweety and definitely tea bag is not strong enough to balance it.
Delicious… worth the weeks of wait for reservations
Beautiful Food, Lovely Room. Our server certainly did his job and wasted no time on words. One small complaint - they need to offer wine tastings. It feels cheap when they don't. Customers expect to familiarize themselves with what is offered on the wine list, at least by the glass. This is the way the world over.
Impeccable as always. The best restaurant in Vancouver!
Amazing food and service!
We opted to let the Chef take charge of our meal and cook for us. Absolutely a great experience, everything was delicious and interesting from the starter to the desert. Massimo the Sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and the service as always was impeccable and seamless. The entire experience was fantastic! It could not have been better.
Everything was awesome. Incredible service.
This is a real treat! A lively atmosphere, an attentive staff and meals without compromise made for a fantastic evening with friends. and you really should have the cioppino.
Amazing as always
This restaurant uses the best of ingredients but unfortunately, uses too much sodium. The true taste is masked ..
Waiter should serve woman first especially when asking for cocktails, then should not reach across the table to serve a drink, literally across it. He should not be tripping other waiters as a joke, was embarrassing to watch. Sorry but not my cup of tea. The food however was SPECTACULAR!
Excellent as always!
absolutely fantastic service and food - really wonderful dining experience every single time.
Wonderful food and service. Great way to celebrate an engagement!
Cioppinos never disappoints. The food to the service was superb.
Food was excellent and service was very attentive. It’s a little loud at times and a little hard to see the menu as the lighting is dimmed just a hair too much. But overall very good.
Chef Pino is number 1, he treated my family to an amazing night! Great food and classic service. Very memorable night!
Great service and amazing food
Outstanding !! Patio is gorgeous. Service is perfection. Food was so delicious, we cannot wait to go back! Thank you
I took my wife here for her birthday. Everything was fantastic from the cocktails, the wine, the food, absolutely top notch. Chef Pino runs a well oiled machine with highly attentive servers and wait staff. Every time I turn around my glass of water has been refilled, and my wine topped up. Excellent attention to details. My wife and I had the multi-course tasting menu option and it was a great way to experience many dishes without getting too full. Dishes were brought out in an organized, rapid succession never feeling too rushed but instead well timed between courses. The sommelier did a fantastic job of selecting a great Italian wine (in this case a delicious Brunello di Montalcino) that paired exceptionally with the courses that we were served. If you are looking for an elevated Italian dining experience look no further. I have been here many times and every time I have had a consistently great experience.
Hands down, the best food and service in Vancouver.
Was incredible. We enjoyed our meals very much. Extensive wine list and great ambiance. We will be back!
As always it was amazing. Great service, delicious food and great ambiance.
Great experience as always!
Benchmarking cactus club waitresses at a 10, our server at Cioppinos was a solid 2. Did not look pleased to seat us and did bare minimum throughout the night. I thought this was interesting as he seemed to treat the table of Caucasian males next to us way better than our table. With regards to food, this restaurant is over hyped as food was mediocre and definitely NOT worth the $$$$ - there is no feeling worse than paying good money for a meal that we didn’t enjoy, I will not be going back.
Enjoyed our experience there. The food was amazing. Service was exceptional. Thank you.
Great food great waiter great atmosphere are very good restaurants. We have been there a number of times.
Great food, service and atmosphere as always. Look forward to next time.
Excellent service and food as usual
One of the best restaurants in Vancouver
So nice to relax and enjoy elegant surroundings and delicious food . Everything was done with all correct covid restrictions but service was very warm and friendly. Staff are very experienced and knowledgeable. Had a wonderful time.
As always food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Pino and his team continue to make cioppinos one of the best in Vancouver.
Amazing service. The food is the best in the city. Totally great vibe. Outstanding attention to detail and everybody including the chef was very personable
Always fabulous. Tonight was extra special. Caviar service was superb and the Chef’s mother’s lasagna was honestly the best we have ever had. Service was exceptional. We love Cioppino’s.
The best restaurant in Vancouver by a long way!!!!!!!
We have been going here for 15 years and it is always ooutstanding
Delicious food, friendly service, nice free birthday dessert. Ambient lighting was low and romantic with a high end vibe
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, everything we ordered was beautifully presented and so delicious. A real treat in these trying times. I was surprised at how generous the portions were.. I would have to order less next time!
Perhaps the best Italian restaurant in Vancouver
Superbly created food, every detail creating multiple layers of subtle flavours. That includes starters and mains.
Definitely going back there for another celebration.
By the way, their COVID protocols are good.
