Due to its popularity Cin Cin is a very noisy establishment with modern décor. It is nearly impossible to have a conversation. However, they have a great bar and serve good food. The wait staff is very busy but professional.

We ate here several months ago and loved the food. Last night was a disappointment. We ordered the Beef Sliders and Truffled French Fries that we had before and they were good. We tried the Gnocco Fritto and found it to be just fried dough with a tiny smidgen of duck on the top. The Cold Smoked Salmon Crudo was... More

Haven't been here in awhile. Met a few friends here for happy hour. We ordered almost all the appetizers off the happy hour menu. Excellent food. Only issue was the limitation of the beers on the HR menu. Only two, otherwise a great place to share eats and drinks with friends.

A cool little find. This place is really nice! We sat at the bar and the atmosphere is really nice and relaxing. Good happy hour until 6:00 p.m. A good selection of wine and the pours are decent. Happy hour food portions are not very big, but very tasty! I'm looking forward to returning soon!

Cin-Cin is one of our regular "go-to" restaurants in Los Gatos. The bar area to the left of the entrance adds a nice vibe to the atmosphere. The wine selection is nice. They have small plates and a good variety of main dishes on the menu as well as specials. The lighting is subdued and relaxing. Service is always very... More

Atmosphere: Sit down restaurant, bar area, with lively conversation! Food: Generally Mediterranean and Spanish inspired. Portions are reasonable size, good for sharing with a small group. Noise level: High. Not for a quiet romantic night. Good for a fun night out with SO or friends.

A Los Gatos favorite, great for a 'grazing' dinner of small plates or elegant happy hour at the bar. Love the frisee salad w egg, mushroom empanadas, cheeses.

Went there this past Saturday night with my wife for our weekly date night. We have been there few times in the last year, but Saturday night's dinner left me wondering why we don't go there every Saturday night! Amazing food - the special ceviche was spectacular, the sliders were just fantastic, and risotto very good, and the mac/cheese (the... More
