Cioppino's Mediterranean Grill
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!
Everything was excellent! The organic mushrooms were divine. The lobster pesto was a brilliant combination of flavors and the lobster bisque was exquisite. And I can’t recommend the cannoli for dessert enough!!
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.
We traveled from Oregon to Vancouver and one of the reasons is how amazing this restaurant is! Gnocchis like little pillows! Service amazing and food excellent!!!
Our server was so attentive and professional throughout the duration of our dinner. The food was UNBELIEVABLY good. Great spot to dress up and go out on a date night or with your friends. Also great for family! Can’t wait to go back!
The best Italian food in Vancouver. Great wine list.
Great service, food was amazing! They even gave us a complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary. We will definitely be dining there again
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.
Excellent meal with friends including one who is celiac (rare find among Italian restaurants).
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.
Fantastic food - exceptional flavours and service excellence to match! A truly memorable dining experience.
Cioppino's never disappoints. Consistently delicious food with attentive but not obtrusive service. The lobster risotto is a must.
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.
It was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and our waiter was very helpful and attentive.
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.
Lovely dine out experience
perfect evening, great place to celebrate my wife's birthday , service was fantastic, food was amazing..
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.
Excellent & our server Eden was great!
Great dinner and service as usual.
The service was great. The wine list is quite overwhelming, there is a lot of choice. The food was really good, the gnocchis were delicious and the ciopinno was pretty good too.
Our dinner was spectacular - the food, service and ambiance! Chef Pino is incredibly creative but even basics- if you call them that- are delicious as the ingredients are top quality. One of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time!
We had a great experience dining here. We were celebrating two special 13 year olds birthdays and they were invited into the kitchen to prepare their birthday desserts. It was a very special night. Thank you.
Celebrating a special occasion with a Sicilian wife and getting served by a waiter from Naples made the dinner particularly memorable. The food was excellent and the dessert was right on at the suggestion of the waiter. The delivery of a special birthday greeting pro bono by the restaurant added to the festiveness to the event. Well done on all accounts!
Best Italian meal we have ever had. The service was so on point and the food was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend
A wonderful experience everything was first rate. It would be my Number One Italian /Med restaurant in Vancouver and rated very highly in all Canada. The food was exceptional Carpaccio truly amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the Pappardelle. The service was attentive but thankfully not too overpowering polite and friendly. I have been here in the past and delighted to stay the same high standards are consistent. Our thanks to Pino and the entire staff.
Family trip to Vancouver.
Our server was incredibly charming and the chef comped us a piece of birthday cake that was an artistic masterpiece. Food was great too.
Always a great meal
7:15 arrival, entrees at 9:05. Management did not apologize but explained how busy they were. We will ease that problem in the future. Food was very good.
We came here for our anniversary and it was amazing! The food was delicious and you get a decent amount of food for the price. The waiters were very attentive and the food was spaced out well enough so we didn’t feel like we were being rushed.
We would definitely come back!!
Fabulous dinner, one of the best in years. The level of service was extraordinary. After being moved away from a group of men swearing & talking really loudly, we had a quiet table. Ahhh. On to the DOCG Prosecco, a splurge but a fantastic wine. Paired with prosciutto and white asparagus. Then veal rib chop-so yummy. My wife had beef ribs in Barolo, also great. We enjoyed a second bottle of sparkling, as we were taking a cab home. Tiramisu for desert was excellent.
The owner helped make this a memorable evening with his gracious attitude. Grazie!
High end dining at its finest. Every course was exquisite. Dinner service was flawless. My expectations were very high. Cioppino's reputation is well deserved and exceeded my expectations.
