Diner Reviews
  • "With the departure of a long-term server. Her replacement is not as convivial, nor as attentive which detracts from the ambiance. In such a tiny restaurant the new server takes up a lot of space in both senses of the word. The owner is as fabulous as ever, excellent at making recommendations and pairing wines."

  • "I took a date here, and the service was great. They gave great advice on wine, and the owner was so sweet. Be prepared how small it is and make reservations even on weekdays!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed a late dinner here recently and were very impressed with the experience. We tried the Chef's Tasting Menu which varies from order to order! Ours consisted of a lovely chopped salad (can't recall the name), a sausage with bread and 3 dips (loved the violet mustard), a tasty bacon bruschetta type dish, a shrimp dish that was divine and Atlantic cod that was so flaky and delicious! It was fun to not know what was coming and the wine list was extensive. We enjoyed the option of ordering half glasses of wine and pairing different courses with different samples. The service was wonderful!"

  • "After far too long went back to Tzin July 4 and enjoyed it from the minute we walked in until it was time to go. The food was outstanding and the service was great we didn't feel rushed as happens at other restaurants. Corey suggested we try a chefs selection and it was the only choice we needed to make for the dinner and it was a great idea. The food arrived shortly and it was excellent. From chorizo to scallop to bacon to salmon to bison it was all well prepared and left us eagerly awaiting the next offering. Dessert was a struggle already quite full but opted to share an apple dessert with a suggested Sauterne. Wow Our only regret was waiting so long to have gone back to Tzin but will not be waiting that long again."

  • "The food was fantastic!! Everything that came out of the tiny little kitchen made us want more and more!! (And we ended up ordering over 1/2 the tapas on the menu!) I really hope this place sticks around for a long time!! I can't wait to bring friends and family here to share the expereince!"

  • "We made a last minute reservation for our anniversary on Canada day after our original plans changed. Wow! We have found our new special occasion restaurant! Everything was perfect! The service was top notch and the food was incredible. We have eaten at some world class restaurants over the years, and I have to say the Bacon was the best thing I have EVER eaten, so good!"

Every bite from my fork caused me to close my eyes, sigh with delight, and come up with another way to say "delicious"! I loved everything about this dining experience. Wonderful ambiance! Great spot for a romantic date."

  • "We were a group of six women and we enjoyed a Saturday evening of fun and good wine at Tsin. The wine menu had an extensive selection however, we were never given a food menu to look at. Upon our arrival, the waiter was quick to ask if any of us had food allergies and he suggested leaving the tapa choices with him. We said "okay" however, we soon realized that we had been too easily swayed. When I go back to Tsin, I will definitely ask for a food menu and make my own choices. The food was flavorful, but I must admit that we all walked away a little hungry. We also thought that there could have been a little more "down time" between each tapa. Kudos go out to our waiter who had a great sense of humour!!!"

Tasty bites, creative wine selections, sweet endings and a very special service experience you can only find in such an intimate and cozy space. THIS is the place to spend your $250 and splurge... worth every dollar. P.S. the take AMEX :)"

  • "My girlfriend and I have been going to Tzin for a few years now, it has always been our favorite place in the city. We had our best night yet at Tzin last week. This place gets better every time we go, and it started out incredible. The staff is amazing, the Chef is spectacular and the Wine list keeps us entertained all night. Tzin is exceptional, thank you yet again for a fantastic night."

  • "Three of us met for our annual get together and we couldn't stop talking to even glance at the menu. This was no problem for the Tzin staff. They checked with us about allergies, our likes and dislikes and then the food began to arrive. We ate our way through a fabulous evening visit. What a fabulous experience! "

  • "My boyfriend and I went for an early supper for my birthday. We shared the bacon, prawns, duck, scallops, and a cheese board. The bacon was fantastic, half an inch thick, the maple apple compote on top made the dish. It was smoky, tangy, crunchy, soft, sweet, and meaty. It covered every base without being overwhelming. We both agreed that bacon would never be the same. The wines were also excellent, the color coding helped us to choose wines that went well with our dishes."

  • "Braised duck was just adequate and was expensive. Wine and dessert was lovely "

  • "My wife and I went to Tzin for a dinner before a show. The wine list was extensive and the food was amazing. Our server asked us if we had any food preferences or allergies and then suggested that we let the chef cook for us. It was great! One surprise after another.....you can't go wrong with Tapas! Cheers!"

  • "Our favorite wine and tapas dinner choice in Edmonton. Delightful service, yummy food with a menu that changes it up just enough, but still keeps our fav dishes in some form to enjoy again and again. Stellar wine list, and with sommeliers that REALLY know their stuff. Book early for the best late evening tables(there are just 7), and enjoy. Repeat customers are more than appreciated, and its that kind of small hot spot finesse that is so remarkable in comparison to even the best 6 star big box dinning rooms. "

  • "We had booked our reservations to celebrate the arrival of my friend. I have been to this place several times before. I always come back because of the service, however, this time we had a male server who was acting as if he was attempting to rush us. He asked us several times if we wanted more wine when our glasses werent empty and then when they were and we said we wanted to wait... He brought us the cheque. Honestly its a great place, but this wasnt a good expereince. I usually go there to relax, not pay 60$ to have a 45 min meal..."

  • "Best night ever. Place is small and usually hard to book for busy times. Cory is your wine guy, we simply told him the type of wine we liked and it's like he read our minds. Food was nothing short of fantastic. The sausage was perfectly seasoned, sauces were amazing. Shrimp was cooked just right. The salmon was exceptional, tender, not dry at all. The bill was a bit costly but it was worth every penny. Like the title said, if I could, I would live here. "

  • "2nd time at Tzin and the food never disappoints. Cant wait to go back. The only reason this didnt get a 5/5 rating is because we got put at the small table meant for 2 people this time, even though there were 4 of us, so it was a bit tight, but you quickly forget about it once the amazing food starts coming."

  • "From the time my husband and I walked into Tzin we were taken care of expertly. The service was great, food was amazing and I loved the funky interior. Even though it was the smallest restaurant I've ever been in, the experience was amazing. We will definitely be going back and telling all our friends about the restaurant. "

  • "Tzin is our new favorite place for a special night out! Always a wonderful experience. This time, we closed our menu and enjoyed the chefs choice with wine sampling. For special occasions, I recommend it. But, remember, be sure to keep a slow pace to savor it all!"

  • "These days I am into in tapas or small-plate type dining, and had a very enjoyable experience at Tzin. The food was excellent, the service was very professional, smiling and courteous, and the food came out quite promptly. We don't often drink wine and weren't in the mood that night so can't comment on that. There aren't many plates on the menu so after coming once or twice you will have tried it all, also the food was very rich, sometimes bordering on oily/fatty, but overall delicious. The space is very small, we ended up at a small corner table which was intimate and cozy without being cramped. If we were rubbing knees with other couples in the row of two-person tables set up near the door, I think it would have been unpleasantly packed."
