We went there on a special occasion and found very helpful and friendly waiters who made us laugh while they explained the menu and brought the dishes.

CinCin is a fusion of Chinese and French. Regretfully neither come off as great. the food was good and we will go back. WE had two entrees - sweet and sour pork, very good; and Peking duck - mundane.

My title says it all. I prefer to dine where the management's attitude indicates that it appreciates my patronage. The waiter was finely proficient and was tipped appropriately. Enough said.

Everyone was happy with their food choice, and the wait staff made great suggestions. We ordered appetizers (steamed wontons, chicken satay), wonton and sweet/sour soup, duck special, and no complaints. Decent portions. Only thing lacking was the wine list.

I have not done that dinner but would be interested to hear about it. I think the food is really good, but pricey for what is truly, basic Chinese dishes, not "gourmet" in my opinion.
