Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Food lived up to the hype quite well. Small portions for the price, but that's to be expected at any high end fine dining place. Service was perfect, very friendly."

  • "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 :-)"

  • "Tzin continues to delight with creative menus and a very impressive wine list. Simply THE best 6 tables in Edmonton, yummy food, dedicated service and an ambiance well worth the $250 tab. (We only wish they would open on Mondays as a private cooking school :)"

  • "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."

  • "Amazing from top to bottom. Great staff great atmosphere and the best of all was the good and wine. We ordered one of everything and it was all breath taking. 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"

  • "The dishes were adequate but not particularly outstanding for the price. Nice place to go to and the music was what we like so it was a good time. Except as a special occasion, we probably won't return."

  • "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."

  • "We celebrates our 2 year wedding anniversary there on Saturday. The owner was really nice and paired all of our food with some wonderful wines. The food was excellent and I cannot stop dreaming of the caramel sauce that they serve on the steak! Yum!"

  • "We had a great start to our Girls Night out at Tzin Wine Bar. The Tapas were absolutely incredible and the wine was deliciously paired. Great ambiance and service as well. Could have stayed all night! Very small so an intimate feel good for a night with friends or a date night! Be sure to make a reservation though!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The service and food was fantastsic as usual. Every time we go we order the paella and we are never disappointed. Love that their menu changes with the season just a shame we didn't get to try some of the past dishes. Hopefully it will make it's way back onto the menu another day."

  • "Recently had a birthday celebration here. Food was delicious, service excellent, quick and very friendly. A bit costly for each dish and amount of food so I would probably only go for special occasions or sparingly. Wine list extensive with great selection. Recommend for sure"

  • "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."

  • "Tucked in a corner downtown Tzin is a restaurant we will talk about for a long time. Book ahead as it only has a few tables that are always full. A unique menu had us savouring every bite against a wine list that sparkled. Highest ravings and ratings from these diners!"

  • "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!!!"
