Excellent food...excellent service!

We took our daughter and her boyfriend there for her birthday and we enjoyed a wonderful meal and excellent service...a most memorable evening! Quite expensive but worth every penny...we will be back!

Cioppino's is one of our favourite upscale places to go to. Yes it is dated (could use a little decor updating). Yes it is pricy. But the food is amazing, portions are generous and service is very good. Food comes in relatively fast. We are never disappointed when dining at Cioppino's and are always amazed by how much so many... More

The hostess I had the displeasure of speaking with on a few occasions was trying to sound friendly but the insincerity and boredom came across clearly. When I attempted to book a reservation for 9 people for my boyfriend's 35th birthday, the hostess told me there was a $500 deposit for a large group, which I was fine with. Then... More

This is truly a 1st class restaurant. The food is just so good, the service is attentive but not intrusive. The wine selection is amazing. The prices were a little higher than I am comfortable with, but after dining it didn't matter - the meal was just that good. I highly recommend trying this jewel!

A friend and I grabbed a late dinner at Cioppino's. We shared the goat cheese salad to start. She had the tenderloin, I had the short ribs...both were amazing. For desert, we had the white chocolate mouse (or something like that) and it was good. I highly recommend Cioppino's.

It was our second visit to 'Pino's in the last year this past weekend because we couldn't remember if we really enjoyed the food here or not from our first visit over a year ago. Long story short, we SHOULD have remembered how good it was because our dinner was exceptional! My wife had the gnocchi which was loaded with... More

This is a warm, lovely restaurant. Lots of dark wood. Cozy on a rainy night. We had dinner on a Saturday night early, and were seated in a very nice room with maybe 8 tables. Lined with wine bottles--very pleasant! The food was incredible. I had linguine pesto that was fabulous, and my husband had sablefish that he said was... More

I took my wife here for her birthday and was not disappointed. The service was attentive and knowledgable. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful . The sauces were flavourful. My wife's sablefish was 'to die for'

Food was fresh, but way overpriced and nothing fantastic. Had a salad for a starter which was great. Dessert was unbelievable. But our pastas-the lobster linguini and the fetucinni-tasted like spaghetti with ketchup and the other like hamburger helper. I'd rather had gone elsewhere for 300$,

We just had the pleasure of dinner at this great neighborhood restaurant. In town for a few days before a cruise, staying in Yaletown, we lucked out getting a referral here. The four of us dining together were all impressed. Here are a few of our dishes that night: from the roasted organic beet salad, with pumpkin seeds and goat... More
