We were so impressed with professional mannerism of all the staff from when we arrived, served and departed. We had ever been to this restaraunt and it was recommended by a friend. It was my birthday and everyone treated me so well . My husband and I would definitely come again.

Should go here more often, every time I do, I enjoy the experience. Being on Robson, it is off the beaten track for good restaurants, however, it is well worth the diversion.

We had the best time.
Thanks to Shion behind the bar!! Best cocktails in town!
Thanks to Shane for telling us all about Dilettante Pinot Noir which he had the opportunity to create.
The Pinot was so amazing with the mushroom risotto.
We can't wait to go back!!

Went with my wife on a Monday around 6:30. It was fairly quiet in there but was filling up by the time we left.
The service was excellent! The food was delicious. The portions were fair for the price.
All-in-all it was great and will definitely be back!

This was my first experience at this restaurant. The food and wine are priced at a high level one would expect for fine dining. While the food was good, our service was poor. Our waiter was difficult to pin down from the start. Getting our drinks sorted was a challenge as he kept running away. I prefer a setting where the server greets the table and tries to make a good impression and connection with the guests from start to finish.

We are not regulars so the table was not great - in a busy throughfare. It was busy and loud, with a great buzz, but it meant our waiter was busy too. He was good when he appeared but he was split too many ways. However the food was fantastic and is well worth the visit. My wife had ravioli which was delicious and so too was my osso bucco - good, hearty, traditional rib sticking stuff. Recommended.

Fantastic dinner! We shared the charcuterie board which was over flowing and a beet salad. I had the branzino for my main entree. They offered to fillet it for me at the table, what service! It isn't often you get old fashioned table service like that any more. The branzino was $43 but worth the price. Our server was efficient and not overly friendly but not snooty which is fine. The other server (who brought our bread and cleared our plates) was more friendly and the person who filleted my fish was as well. I would return and highly recommend Cincin!

Unfortunately, the food and server experience was terrible. We had 2 out of 3 pasta dishes being excessively salty that it burned our tongues. However, the pumpkin and lemon dessert were exceptional (highly recommend). In terms of service, he was passive aggressive and insisted on pushing appetizers and drinks. Despite that, I was nearly 7 months pregnant. Overall- disappointed and husband refuses to return to dine here again.

Small portions and pricey for what you get, you will leave there hungry afterwards. Food tasted good, but not worth the price. Ordered the entree size squash ravioli but when my plate arrived, I wondered where the rest of my dinner was. Definitely wasn’t filling as you only got 8 Small ravioli’s. My spouse ordered the veal with risotto, didn’t even come with a few vegetables on the side. For a $100 dinner I expect to be full, not having to go elsewhere to grab something else to fill us up.

Visiting Vancouver for the first time, we wanted somewhere nice to eat, close to our hotel but something a little bit special and Cincin looked good. The food was amazing - as a vegetarian, it’s not often I enjoy every course - but I was blown away. The service could have been friendlier and they missed a trick by taking so long to take our drink order. But all in all it was a lovely meal and I’d be happy to recommend it.

Took a business group - some from out of town and we invited our partners to join us. The service was mindful, the food offered some great choices that were both unique and fresh. The restaurant was full but we still felt special and taken care of - I eat out a lot and I was impressed -thank you CinCin!
