Ate lunch and dinner here on a weekday. The hamburger at lunch was great, very tasty, and good fries to go with it. For dinner had the sockeye salmon with caesar salad. The salad was very good, the salmon was pretty good, just a bit over cooked. Being an Italian place, I asked for a side of pasta with the... More

As the last restaurant we visited in Vancouver in our recent trip to Canada this fine restaurant proved to be a little gem. The staff were happy to guide us through the menu, and we enjoyed a fine meal that was well presented and beautifully cooked. If this restaurant was a few thousand miles nearer home I suspect that we... More

Just arrived in town and walked down the street to find a restaurant. Found this place and checked the menu and decided on the 10oz Rib Eye. What a surprise as the steak was cooked to perfection. Any concerns we initially had were quickly replaced by the quality of the food. Will go back for a pasta if I have... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this wonderful little Italian restaurant. Tables were few but it was busy and most importantly the pasta meals were a delight. We are so pleased that we happened upon this gem of a restaurant. Service was excellent.

This small neighbourhood restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner. The food is always flavourful. There is a small outdoor patio which is pleasant on a warm Vancouver evening. Our server, Misty, always provides great service and there is never any sense of being rushed out the door.

Stayed at the Times Square Suites apartments on Robson and walked around the neighborhood. We passed the Cinch Grill and went in to check the restaurant & the menu. Small intimate restaurant with the most magnificent hanging baskets of flowers outside. We went back for dinner that evening with another couple & had a wonderful meal. The service was friendly...

We were staying down by the bay in the Renaissance and just wanted some place down home and local. We walked the streets looking for just the right place and came across Cinch Grill. What a pleasure! Very friendly service. The food was fresh seafood in very excellent tasting pasta. Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Rosellen Suites, Vancouver on Monday 16th September. It was a Monday Night and we walked the Streets close by to find no restaurants open. We then walked a short distance in Robson Street and found Cinch Grill. WHAT A FIND. It is only small and busy but the waitress found us seating. The food was just... More

We stumbled across this quaint little restaurant while visiting Vancouver. We had walked for blocks looking for something that felt right - and this looked perfect when we went inside. It is small - only 12 tables - but very clean and had a relaxed atmosphere. There were also a few tables outside, but it was raining so we opted... More

The food tasted good and was refined. The risotto, pizza and spaghetti bolognese was all very good. Not the usual bland italian. Prices were afforable.
