Excellent food and very food service. I went there with my wife and had a very good dinner: Classic lobster bisque, porcini and chestnut soul, sautee mushrooms with potatoes and risotto with lobster. All dishes were very tasty - definitely a place to recommend.

I had great expectations coming to this restaurant, expecting to be overwhelmed by the food. I was underwhelmed. Appetizers...cut up sausages on toothpicks, rice balls with basil (couldn't taste any basil) and cut-up tomato brouchette....nothing that stood out. Crab salad...well it was crab on some salad greens....tasted okay, but uninspiring. The pasta dish....I like al dente but this was definitely... More

Nice atmosphere, people were all pleasant, and the food was amazing. The waiter was knowledgeable and recommended the proper pairings of drinks to food, and was not shy about saying "pick it up with your hands and eat!". High end, no pressure evening with fantastic food, met the chef while he was walking around to make sure everyone was having... More

We were at Cioppino's last night and what a truly amazing experience. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is super-attentive and caring. We had Calamari and Mussels for appetizers; they were both very fresh, perfectly seasoned and delicious. We started with a bottle of Alex Elman Bin 721 ($50). Our Main Courses were Rib Eye and Singapore Lamb (Chef's... 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.

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

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...
