On a busy Friday night the maitre'd was able to seat our party of 9 in a room tucked away--which was great for my 87yr old hard of hearing father. The waiter had great suggestions for drinks, appetizers, as well as the main course. He was a former hockey player who played the room perfectly with anecdotes and advice. We... More

You have to look carefully for the entrance to this restaurant which is a staircase leading to the upper floor restaurant. On a balmy evening we chose to sit on the outside veranda which was excellent for people watching on the street below. The food was excellent my starter being wild prawns grilled on a rosemary branch, chickpea and tahini,... More

While I had been to CinCin previously, I was nervous about bringing some friends here to eat while they were visiting from Germany. I know it's tipped towards the more expensive side and I wasn't sure if my friends would enjoy it as much as I had in the past. Let me just say that there wasn't, at any point... More

From the moment I walked up the stairs to see the open kitchen, the Tuscan coloured decore, the hustle of the restaurant to the Italian smell I knew that I was on a winner. Staff and service were great as was the very extensive Italian wine list. Yes, some of the wines are expensive but there is something good for... More

I wanted a place with homemade noodles. Sadly we order a 1/2 order of ravioli and a full order of the short-ribs. The ravioli was outstanding. Let me repeat that--Outstanding, literally melt-in-your-mouth pasta. The gnocchi with the short-ribs was also outstanding. The short-ribs were succulent and tender though a bit too salty. I'd like to go back and order a... More

My partner and I have been here on a few occasions but chose Cin Cin because it was open on Sunday for this special day. We arrived and asked for a balcony table - for a summer evening at 7:00 p.m., we were not too hopeful but we sat and had a cocktail to wait for a table. (We made... More

I've heard all about CinCin and decided it was time to try their delicious food! Let me start by saying the service is outstanding, really great atmosphere and overall ambiance. We sat on the patio over looking Robson street and it was beautiful. The food on the other hand, quite small portion sizes for what you pay. Which I would... More

Amazing food and wonderful service. Wish we could have gone back to try more items.The ravioli and lamb were amazing. Best meal that we had while in Vancouver. Really nice cocktails, too.
