Cioppino's Mediterranean Grill
This award-winning restaurant in Yaletown impresses with classic Northern Italian and French cuisine. The elegantly rustic setting includes white linen tables, dark wood accents, post and beam ceilings, tiles, and warm-hued walls. An open kitchen displays chefs and a long bar highlights views of the docks beyond. Appetizers include the bourbon-honey smoked salmon and the charbroiled calamari salad is unique. Among the pasta selection: artichoke and goat cheese mezzelune with spring vegetable ragout. Main courses include seared scallops and jumbo prawns.
the food was uneventful in its flavour and often was cool in places where one might expect a little warmth. the waiters had incincere smiles and seemed to emanate discomfort with their underpaying jobs too often hesitant to be proffessional servers a strategically shaved monkey would do a better job and maybe have left less hair in the food too!! i was disgusted and will never go back unless to poke at the strange morons that obviously arent waiters!!!
After reading all of the wonderful reviews of this restraunt, I walked in with high expecations. The hostess was busy taping two peices of paper together. When we asked her if they had any tables available, she looked at us as if we were from outer space. Then told us they were full for the rest of the night. (It would have ben helpful if shehad recommended an alternative.) The atmosphere was cold and dreary. I will not go back.
We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and were told that we needed to wait an hour to be seated. The hostess appeared to be truley put-out by our arrival. I ordered a glass of wine and asked that it be brought out with my dinner. Instead, it appeared minutes after I ordered it. It was a 2 ounce pour and was about 10 degrees warmer than room temperature. The food did not live up to the hype. The pasta was starchy and overcooked. The fresh seafood tasted very bland,as if it had been soaked in baking soda and the texture was leathery. The servers were pretentious and appeared to be preocupied. I felt cheated.
Wow, where do i begin... we love this restaurant. amazing wine list (a bit on the pricey side though)
The Ozzo Bucco is to die for and the Parpadelle and Linguini Vongole are equally great!!
If you go there for lunch you have to try the Mussels!!!!!! my vancouver favorites!
We stumbled upon this place searching for a lunch option. Very happy to have found it. The service was excellent without being cloying and the food was delicious, not to mention the bread which was really over the top and was just the perfect thing to sop up the delicious sauces. The entry door was a little confusing as there were two doors it gave the impression that there were 2 establishments. I'm not sure that the open kitchen should be quite as open - example - not everyone is going to love eating while watching someone dismember raw fish. I'd recomend some kind of a low barrier. Definitely will return.
Fire ravaged this Kitsilano restaurant's original structure during the late 1990s. But like the fiery Phoenix, a better taverna rose
from its ashes. A mannequin garbed in traditional Greek attire greets guests outside. Inside, it is reminiscent of a ...
