I have travelled the world and this place was far from the worst places I have been for service and food. The staff here were rude the food was Okay nothing special and I found extremely expensive. I will never dine here again. I will tell my friends about this horrible place

We dined while on vacation with our family that includes 3 kids (ages 8, 9, 12). We had a fabulous meal with amazing service in a really lovely space. I was a little hesitant when we walked in as it was a quiet and even romantic restaurant and we brought our kids (albeit early in the evening). Our service was... More

My wife and I have been here many times. The food just stays great. We ordered the roast chicken with extra peas, including a stellar pinot noir (recommended by our server). Our appy was the grilled Caesar salad. Mr. Postero (head chef and owner) spoke to us about our meal and was genuinely interested that we enjoyed our food. If... More

They squeezed us in without a reservation, avocado and crab salad was delightful, the dressing was light but flavorful and the lobster risotto was exactly what I hoped it would be. Both the lamb and pork medallions were melt in your mouth good. Dessert was great. Our waitress was absolutely lovely. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Amazing food and great service, albeit in a room which feels slightly dated. The mixed seafood which consisted of roasted lobster tail, crab, scallops and prawns was perfection matched with the bottle of Viognier.

My husband and I visited Cioppino's on Friday, May 30th, 2014. We were in Vancouver to take in the 'Eat Vancouver' trade show, & really wanted to experience a few of Vancouver's highly regarded restaurants. I must say...it was a truly unforgettable experience! The in house cured meats we had as an appetizer were AMAZING! I was so impressed with... More

This was my first visit to this award winning Grill & Enoteca. Cioppino's is located in Yaletown generally an easy walk from most Vancouver hotels. Parking in the area can be difficult, so I suggest you make use of the restaurants Valet service ($12.00). The first impressions are positive, warm greeting by the Hostess and inside the ambience is very... More

Vancouver - don't tell me that's all you got!! We were disappointed eating at this place last weekend. A mediocre fare - your old school typical menu, plates way too big and no creativity in presentation. The interior is also cheap (plastic flowers tell it all) and not what you would expect from a high-end eatery. Wine list is gimmicky:... More

Cioppino is a seafood stew that is generally an inexpensive way of feeding great fresh seafood to a lot of people. It’s usually found in more casual atmospheres. Cioppino’s restaurant is definitely more of a high-end foodie experience. Our first experience was with the wine list that is an amazingly great list, but the price tags are seriously overweight. It... More

We were in a private wine room off the main dining area where they managed to seat twenty-two of our family at one single table for a special birthday celebration. Two staff persons were assigned to our group - they were attentive yet unobtrusive! Our group was offered two selections for appies, main dinner and dessert - no one left... More
