    You will be surprised when you walk in the door and there's someone sitting right in front of you coming in the door. The place is very tiny. However, the food is fantastic and the two gentlemen working the floor keep you engaged and entertained. Just don't put your gum on the side plate. I recommend the Bacon and the Beef.

    If you are unsure of what kind of wine to get, ask for a recommendation. All of the wine is fantastic, so you can't go wrong with this. The food overall was great. One caveat - our dessert wasn't fresh, and came out within a minute of ordering. We could've used more time after dinner, and I guess we could've asked to wait a bit before bringing it out, but usually it takes 5-10 minutes! We had the berry pie and it was stale. All in all a great restaurant for special occasions or a romantic night out with your partner. Dining here is a unique experience!

    Do not let this stop you from going! I just was unhappy with the food and crowd this time. The table of obnoxious ladies cannot be controlled...my paella and potatoes could be. The Paella was bland and the potatoes under cooked. A first for both.... Never fear Glen, I will be back again next week :-)

    I've had a love affair with Tzin for sometime now. Sadly, most of my former restaurant 'loves' at some point end up letting me down and the affair ends. Over the past many years, Tzin, has been my only a few consistents in Edmonton to not break my heart. Dinner for this reservation had me bring a well traveled/worldly foodie from Holland. We chose a grand bottle of Zenato Amarone and allowed the staff to pick 5 dishes for us....in no way were we disappointed and both agreed that my love affair will continue to blossom with this extraordinary restaurant. I feel spoiled that Edmonton should have such a delightful gem in her core.

The highlight was the dish Bacon, took dining to a whole other level. We sat there for one hour and forty five minutes. The best experience food wise I have ever had. Thank you

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday as she is a foodie and a wine-o. I have to say that everything was amazing, the food, the service, the atmosphere. The only hang up I have is that if you're hungry, it can be expensive because of the fact that tapas is small portions. If you love wine and just want some snacks, its perfect.

    My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our evening. The service was excellent and well paced, we were encouraged to enjoy and linger. The seafood paella was delicious with scallops, mussels, shrimp and crab meat, as well as tasty chorizo sausage. We had a wonderful bottle of Decoy Zinfandel, very smooth. And though we declined dessert I know they have very delicious offerings. I would go back again and again.

    I took my girlfriend of four years here for her birthday. It was a place we had never been to before so we thought we'd give it a shot. The servers were very helpful and you can order half-glasses of wine so you can try a bunch of different kinds. The wines we tried were all excellent, both red and white. Tapas are appetizer plates all of one thing, and we were pretty hungry, so our server recommended the "Chef's Special". It was awesome. You get something like five Tapas plates plus a desert and they were all delicious. Definitely not cheap and you will need to book a table ahead of time. It is a very small venue and I would say probably not the best for a larger party. But for a couple on a date (or just a fancy dinner) it is excellent.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
