I'd heard so many good things about this weirdly named restaurant/wine bar I'd never seen in Los Gatos and I finally got to try it! We came for Happy Hour and it was one of the best I've had! Tons of drinks from cocktails to wine to beer on the drink menu and a great small plates menu as well.... More

Took my son and his wife there for his birthday. The Chef, Chris Schloss treated us to a fantastic experience as he set up the menu for us. From appetizer to dessert, the food was impeccable, and the wine was great also.

Before the wine bars came to town Cin Cin was really the best wine selection in town. Lisa is an enthusiast with an eclectic taste so Cin CIn still has great selections of wines by the glass. I particularly like Monday's 50% off night where I explore their Burgundy selection. Cin Cin is tucked away in a cozy corner of... More

What a happy hour - 9-11 PM on a Saturday night, a wide list of cocktails and delicious bites for half off! We had a great time sharing small plates - the steamed pork bun was our favorite as was the mango margaritas. Very swanky atmosphere, reminiscent of an NYC joint. One of the best date night places in South... More

The food is great and the atmosphere as well. Their Tapas dishes are in a sense all great. Their short ribs is the best. Great place to eat and service is good as well.

I have gone back to this restaurant 3 times to give them another chance, but sorely disappointed every single time! They claim to be gluten free yet there was only 1 or two items & no GF menu! Tons of dairy on menu too. They said we will make u what you want, but turned down several requests to adapt... More

Cin-Cin is one our favorites in Los Gatos, especially if we're dining out with another couple. They typically serve family style with enough that everyone gets a taste. The wine list is extensive and very reasonable for Los Gatos. A great way to spend an evening. We are real fans of the Korean tacos, Korean Fried Chicken and Pan-seared Salmon.... More

Went here to pass some time before I attended a wedding near by, and glad I did! Sat at the bar and it was happy hour (4-6!) -- so they had a great selection of their menu at about 50% off! Not knowing much about it my friend and I tried a bunch of stuff - fish tacos, Korean fried... More

Pleasantly surprised by the quaint and mellow atmosphere; dimmed lighting and warm, deep-toned interior. Dishes were decently sized -- each of the small dishes seemed portioned just right for the three of us. Excellent service in terms of frequency of checking on us, professionalism, and warmth of server. Very relaxing dinner with delicious, flavorful food. Look forward to next time!... More
