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.

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!

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.

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!

The food was outstanding with a terrific job done by the chefs, especially with the seafood (lobster, prawns and sable fish), and the gnocchi with the tasty sauce. The waiter was very efficient but rather condescending and not very good at reciting and repeating the hugely long specials list. My biggest criticism is the prices. $125 tip for the waiter, which was not really earned and $20 for parma ham on a plate with nothing else and $19 for a Caprese salad. The dinner for the four of us was $900!! We did have cocktails and two bottles of wine ($100 each for the wine). Not an expense we will repeat any time soon because of the cost. I also did not like the decor for that price-sitting on hard wooden chairs at ordinary tables without even a comfortable banquette or intimate booths. The decor should more accurately reflect that cost of the dining experience and be more luxurious and stylish.

Starting from our server Marion to the chef who wrote "Happy Birthday" on the complimentary dessert to the owner Pino and his brother, they are all friendly, approachable and treats their customers/patrons like family. This is not easy to achieve; well done!!

Our reservation was for 5pm and we ended up being the only guests in the restaurant for the first 45 minutes. It was amazing! The service was great and the food delicious. Such an amazing experience. We felt like the restaurant was ours for that short while. I highly recommend the foie gras appetizer, pappardelle with veal cheek and the lobster heaven. And please do yourself the favor of saving room for the lava cake at the end. The chef makes his own chocolate. What?! Worth it. We will definitely be back!
