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.

Cin Cin is a very warm, welcoming, cozy restaurant nestled in on a side street in Los Gatos. A great place to come in out of the cold/rain grab a wine or cocktail and some great food. The staff is incredibly friendly and the food is fantastic. The only downside is this place is incredibly hard to get table at... More

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
