CIn Cin is a lovely setting but seems to put profit maximization above customers. We arrived early for a 8pm but had to wait 30 minutes for a table. No explanation or apology was offered by the staff. I ordered a glass of chardonnay with...More

We always recommend making a reservation but we also welcome walk-ins. We might not always be able to offer tables, especially sea side tables, to walk-ins but we usually have some space at the bar for small parties.
