Had a fish dish to rival Ferreira in Montreal and that is saying something! Service was attentive and friendly and wine reasonably priced. An excellent evening and will be going back again on my next visit.

But the kichen is the real jewel of the restaurant. Food is skillfully prepared and delicious. Go ahead and try any pasta. Having trouble finding an inexpensive... More

A very helpful and friendly place with excellent pasta dishes. Coffee a bit too strong. We had a meal one night and rebooked immediately for a second night. That says it all I suppose.

Very friendly and the waitress knows wine. We all enjoyed the food and wine. Nearby our Landmark hotel. Nice romantic walk/ Music was a bit loud but no problem having it turned down a bit. Nice spot.Always go there on our Vancouver visits.

If you love Muscles, you should try their classic recipe it's great. We also very much enjoyed their pasta dishes. The staff are friendly and helpful, although a bit slow with their service... but the food is worth it.

We were in Vancouver for 9 days, and ate at Cinch 5 times, so needless to say we think it's a great place. The food is delicious and the service is excellent.

This is an almost very good restaurant let down by finishing touches to the food. My beef was excellent , well cooked, but the sauce was seasoned to an inch of it's life. My wife had seafood risotto. Seafood was excellent but risotto finished off with so much butter as to almost make it inedible. Pleasant staff but should have... More

So glad we stopped here for lunch. We're never sure as vegetarians what our options will be and I'm very pleased to report that their vegetarian pizza was one of the best we've ever had! Crisp crust generously topped with lots of fresh wonderful vegies! One pizza was enough for us to split for lunch. Service was prompt, friendly and... More
