If you have no reservation on a Friday or Saturday evening, the bar area of Cin-Cin is a find. The low back chairs though are painful. Ask for a higher back chair, sit at the bar, or sit at the corner table. Service is excellent, food is excellent, while sometimes portion size is a little light.

This is one of my favorite local hangouts. The food is very good. Small plates that are beautifully prepared and very yummy. You can eat in the bar or at a formal table. The atmosphere is cozy yet hip (at least I think so). Great wine selection. The owner Lisa is a top-rated sommelier and always has interesting wine selections.

Well... I had not been there for a long time but over the last couple of weeks I have gone three times because the food, service and friendliness of the staff is stupendous. Pablo, the mixologist, knows the wines very well (yes they have a sommelier too, but I was sitting at the bar), he is eager to suggest and... More

I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of Cin-Cin and never tire of going there. The menu is always seasonal and delicious and the wine list is probably the best in Los Gatos. Monday nights are a must if you want to taste that bottle of wine that is usually outside your budget, bottles are half price. But... More

Interesting small plates and wine flights that make this a smart restaurant for a simple dinner. Sliders, empanadas, and pork buns are small plates that are easy to share. The others, not so much.

Great service, great food and great atmosphere. Add in the happy hour and I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend going. Consistency is hard to come by these days and Cin Cin has managed to maintain theirs. Being in the service industry it is rare I would leave a review like this but Cin Cin deserves it.
