It is an expensive place to dine but worth every penny. Sparkling and shining wine glasses greet you as soon as you are escorted to your table. Sportless and whiter than white table cloth, cuter than cute French server attending to every your movement. Superb view of the open kitchen's hussle-bussle that exhibits confidence and solid kitchen skill. And Pino... More

Hard to find fault with our meal at Cioppinos in Yaletown a couple weeks ago. We had a nice table on the patio out front. Service was attentive and professional, but not not at all stuffy, and our server had a very good knowledge of their wines by the glass. We started off with Pacific Octopus and Lobster Bisque. I...

Good un-rushed service (although dinning room was half full @ 7.30pm on a Friday night). Impressive but extremely overpriced wine list (they don't allow corkage). Food was above average but not to die for. Portions size alone doesn't justify the lofty prices. The braised veal cheek was a tad over seasoned. Scallop appetizer was tasty (2 medium sized scallops for... More

We felt a little like we should be seeing a godfather in the space, and it seemed a little dated. Most of the dishes we had were tasty, but a couple of them seemed pretty plain. Tremendous wine selection, though.

I visited Cioppino's in July ..was invited by local friends in Vancouver.. and I loved our meal ! We must have spent atleast 3 hours at the restaurant..over superb food and wine. The zucchini flowers served as appetizers were an absolute hit. What I loved was, the food and presentation.. and above all the service. We had a fantastic person... More

Amazing food. We love the room. Great wine list. Patrick is our favorite waiter but they are all great. Try to get there once a month from the Island.

There were four of us dining here, one of whom was a strict vegetarian. It was a busy Friday evening but they still had space for us. We were escorted through the restaurant and were surprised to see a whole new section around the corner of this wall. There were more tables there and a group dining room which could... More

Three of us went out for a business dinner during the week. Food was good - not great, but good - and the patio was very nice. Portions were small and prices were on the high side (most starters were 16 dollars). The wine list is quite extensive and when I pointed to a price range (50-100) that I wanted,... More

In Vancouver 3 nights and ate here twice. Thought it was excellent. Italian is my most regular type of dining and Cioppino's is perhaps my 3rd favourite Italian worldwide (after River Cafe London and Aimo & Nadia Milan). Simple food, very well cooked. Had the sole menuere which was arguably mis-labled as it wasn't sole in butter, but delicately poached... More

Affordable restaurants in my opinion rank higher than crazy expensive places. The food here is no doubt good but worth the price...NO. I took a customer and his boss here and for the three of us it was over $400. We did not drink any fancy wine but did have a couple glasses. The special appitizer was very good but... More
