“Pricey for amount of food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

The service was awesome and the food was good but not plentiful. My husband had the soup which was served in a large but shallow bowl. We both ordered the halibut which was small with a few pieces of pasta on the side. The food was good but again very little was on the plate. We shared a dessert and finished that $12 dessert in 2 bites. Would I go back? Most likely not because although I am not a big eater, I like leaving something on my plate and at Cin Cin that would be impossible. The wine was good though!

“Spot on!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

I was greeted and seated right away. Service was attentive and reassuring. I ordered a fresh pressed juice, which was very refreshing. My wine selection was a Tedeschi Amarone, which was heavenly! I was presented with some lovely fresh small ciabatta bread and topping. My meal began with a delicate yellow beet salad, ricotta cheese, pine nuts, edible flowers and orange vinaigrette. Wow what a taste explosion. Next was a small portion of tagliatelle noodles with bolognese sauce, which was very flavourful My main course was a lightly grilled albacore tuna presented over spinach, white beans, green olives and a pesto sauce. It was absolutely delicious. The feature dessert was a decadent chocolate tart with a light chocolate mousse and chocolate wafer all sitting on top of orange coulis. A perfect end to a fabulous meal. A nice cup of organic fresh mint tea was delivered in an elegant teapot. I highly recommend CinCin for a comfortable and relaxing evening and fantastic food and service.

“Awesome Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and Ishowed up at 6pm on a saturday without a reso and the hostess was able to squeeze us in if we didn't need a lot of time. service was awesome. the bread never ran out on the table before it was replaced with a new basket. Same thing with our water. Food arrived very quick and was tasty. we weren't looking for a long drawn out meal on the night we ate here and were very impressed by the service and food. there were lots of staff on hand and multiple people helped with service at the table, from the waitress, to the busser filling our water glasses, to what appeared to be the shift manager cleaning the tablecloth and bringing us our bill. Service was top notch. would definitely eat there again.

“Good service and food, though menu is a bit too diverse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Came here for dinner and it was a good experience. Appetizers were generally OK but it was a bit too varied. Adding sushi to oysters is a bit of a stretch. It just seems like the chef is trying a shotgun approach to everything.
Mains were good. The steak was a bit heavy on the gravy. Dessert was delicate.
