Had a fun girls night out at Cin Cin. We tried some fun & delicious coucktails & never even got the the impressive wine list. We shared a beet salad, mushroom risotto, truffle fries, cheese plate and a decadent chocolate dessert. Each dish was delicious. Our server was attentive & friendly. All in all a great experience & will definitely... More

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.
