Excellent Dining Experience

A beautiful decor restaurant with impeccable service. The food is very good with gorgeous presentation. This would be a 4.5 is it was allowed. The half point comes off for price, which is simply higher than it should be for the quality. A wine list where 95% of the offerings are a $100+ simply is... read more

One take away: not recommended. We stood for 9 minutes at the door and four people working past us by before a hostess took our coats and then sat us in a empty restaurant in an uncomfortable table. We suggested to move to a booth. I ordered wine and drinks for table. The wine and drinks did not come until... More

Have been here twice in March 2015 and the menu was slightly different each time. Starters we have sampled include the sea scallops, wild prawns (both "skewered" on a rosemary sprig and grilled - amazingly complex sauces and greens to accompany), and vegetable and cannelini bean soup. Pastas have included casarecce in a spicy tomato sauce, Dungeness crab ravioli with... More

CinCin has pretensions, I'll allow, to be something more than it is. But ultimately it's that arrogance in charging for that $14 soup, $13 salad, or $35 entree that reduces its appeal. Food was served hot and had bright flavor profiles. Had to ask for parmigiano reggiano on my soup and pasta, which I should have been offered. Wine by... More

We had high expectations based on reviews here and friends opinion. Splurged on white and black truffles, only to find that the price and quality don't match. Service was a bit robotic, wine was corked ( according to waiter ) I guessed we went on an off night for the restaurant.

My wife and I were trekking around downtown Vancouver on a recent visit and stopped in at CinCin as we were in the mood for Italian and there were good reviews on Tripadivsor. The place was packed (Saturday night) and all we could get was a seat at the bar. The gentlemen behind the bar were knowledgeable and welcoming and... More

So, apparently Wood Fire Grilles are rare in Vancouver restaurants. Who knew?!? They recently updated the wood fire grille at Cin Cin and it is the centerpiece of the kitchen. The service was excellent from home made pasta to an amazing braised rib. Great wine list and environment. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this restaurant.

Excellent. We had a reservation at 8:15 PM but got there at 7:00 PM. We decided to have dinner at the bar rather than at a table and what a good decision that was. The fellow serving drinks was as attentive as any waiter/waitress we have ever had and made this experience special.. Food was excellent with super salad and... More

I must start off by saying that it is Avery nice place. Unfortunately it is way over priced and the portions are extremely inadequate. We order ed the pork belly for 36 dollars. We got a piece that was the size of a brownie. No kidding with 2 approx 2inch pieces of octopus, a little sauce and a few piece... More
