    Really nice Sunday lunch!. We keep coming back. The service is fast and friendly. We sat out on the back patio and we were late lunching so it wasn't busy. I got the crab Taquitos which were good. Delicious churros and Tre leches cake. The fried Calamari was a little too oily though.

    Excellent overall, creative Mexican cuisine, attentive and friendly waitstaff. Two issues on this visit: (1) the excessive noise level indoors. The interior design amplifies noise level. Sound bounces off the concrete floors, high ceilings, mostly bare walls, hard surfaces. You have to shout to have conversation. (2) I had the Surf and Turf entree (2nd time to order this). It's delicious, but this time there was too much pepper jack cheese. The Dungeness crab got lost in it.

    Service for. Thursday early lunch was exceptionally polite. The back patio was secluded, shady, roomy and atmospheric with the tree growing up in the area we chose. We found the menu intriguing, with a good variety of unique choices. My friend enjoyed the crab tacos and I was astounded that I could consume the entire seafood rice dish (a paella-like house special,) but the sauce was so delicious yet light I decided to finish it then and there. The seafood, a combination of sea bass, shrimp, clams, mussels, and calamari, tasted fresh and felt fresh in texture. 24 hours later I am still feeling fine. The only negative, which had nothing to do with the restaurant, is that there was some repair, gardening or construction going on at the business next to the patio and the sound of the motor made it hard to hear my table mate.

    Awful brunch food. Tortillas are NOT handmade but store bought. Flavorless chicken in breakfast tacos, canned crab with shell pieces in omelet and no cheese. Huge disappointment after a decent dinner experience in the past. Won’t repeat.

    If you really want to have elevated Mexican food and a good drink or drinks. I would not hesitate to come back to Tzunun. I consider this place to be one of the top, if not the top Mexican restaurant in the bay. And that says a lot about me coming from San Diego. Because most Mexican restaurants here are just ok, I mean just OK. Ok, they are not that good. I'm glad I found this one.

    It was way WAY too loud in there! At one point we had to shout to hear each other. There weren’t that many people in there as it was only 5:30 and it wasn’t even 1/4 full, so it shouldn’t have been that noisy. The food was good, not great. The margarita was great!

    We were sitting on time with a friendly smile and curtesy. We have ordered two Margaritas and have been very disappointed with quality. Too much ice, in a whiskey glass. We both decided not to drink more than one. Food was exceptionally delicious, with a large portion of salmon and sides. Will be back for sure

    I've walked out of three restaurants two times in my life. Tzunun is now my third. Lackluster and cavernous dining room make for horrible acoustics. It is extremely loud and makes it difficult to have a conversation, even when sitting at a 2-person table. Main dishes took nearly an hour to arrive. My reservation was at 7:30pm, yet mains didn't arrive until 8:40. To top it off, the steak in one of them was raw, not medium-rare as requested. It has a light sear on the outside, with the inside being cool and raw. We were hungry and annoyed due to the long wait time at this point, so requested the check for our appetizer and two drinks. We paid and left. Our next stop was a local taqueria, where we should have gone to in the first place.

    All great experience. The food was pretty good but not incredible. I definitely go back even though I feel like it’s a bit overpriced. They have a beautiful bar with lots of fresh ingredients for the drinks which I like. the mushroom tacos are pretty good overall but I think it would be kind of cool if they used a variety of mushrooms not just the cheapest of them all which is the Cini mushroom. Their corn ribs were perfectly seasoned and flavored. I can’t wait to have those again. The corn and cheese empanadas were OK. I would try them again just to make sure it’s consistent. Maybe they’d be better a second time around who knows they seemed a little dry and over flowered and somewhat dull flavor could add some spice or something to it. I don’t know . And I also mentioned that the menu could need at least one or two more vegetarian options and I’d be coming back a lot more often as vegetarian dishes are kind of taking off . And they gave a cute little birthday dessert. That’s somewhat of a tradition in Mexico during holidays.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend so was looking forward to dining here. I was disappointed with my experience. We started with a half dozen oysters, I love oysters! I tried one and had to spit it out. I had pieces of shell in my mouth along with an oyster I’m just not so sure was fresh. We went on to order the Brussel sprouts, skirt steak tacos and Baja fish tacos. All the food took a long time to come out and it tasted just ok. Lacking some flavor. The best part was our drinks, we ordered Paloma’s. They were refreshing and tasted great. Waiter was courteous. I will say, we dined on NYE so maybe that could have affected our experience…?

    Walnut Creek restaurant vibe in Peasant Hill! Wanted something close to home so that we didn’t have a lot of driving to do on New Year’s Eve. This was perfect! The interior is nicely done, the food fantastic and the service was exceptional! The bar services great drinks. They have a nice back patio where I could have brought my dog. Highly recommend Tzunun!

    The tamale masa was moist, not dry and flaky like most places I’ve tried. The pork was tender and flavorful. The Mexican Omelette was killer good. It had Chorizo and peppers inside and gave the Omelette some heat but not overwhelming. I didn’t read the menu well enough but it was an egg white omelette - surprised me since that is normally by request. If your into French Toast, then you have to try this. Not too sweet and the sauce was just right. The bread was just thick enough for some chew. I have to say this Brioche was good, good and good.

    Welcome to town TZunun-"The noise level is loud- but a nice vibe. The ambience is inviting. We ordered two tapas the yucca chips and salsa- there was no favor very bland on both the chips and salsa. The waiter so kindly took them off our bill. Our second Burrata Tlayuda was yummy delicious. My crudo Pulpo tostadas were ok. My husbands Adobe Branzini was delicious. My drink was good a bit strong, we got our monies worth in alcohol content for sure. The waiter and server were professional and friendly. They took strides to make sure we were taken care of and happy. We got empanadaes deliver to our table in error and were told to keep them no charge. We will definitely return, there are lots of options for dishes and drinks as I observed other tables they looked amazing and the restuarant is worth indulging another trip. We will return again.

    Great Service and Presentation, but Lacking in Flavor I recently dined at Tzunun Mexican restaurant and was overall impressed with my experience. The service was excellent, and the food came out very quickly, which was a pleasant surprise. However, while the presentation of the dishes was top-notch, I found the flavors to be lacking for my personal taste. The service at Tzunun was exemplary. The staff was attentive, friendly, and accommodating, making for a very enjoyable dining experience. Additionally, the efficiency of the kitchen in delivering the food promptly was commendable. When the dishes arrived, I was immediately struck by their beautiful presentation. The attention to detail and the artistic plating truly impressed me. However, as I delved into the meal, I found myself yearning for more robust and pronounced flavors. While the food was well-prepared, it unfortunately fell short in terms of taste. I was hoping for more depth and complexity in the flavors, but instead found the dishes to be rather bland. Despite the flavor issue, I must emphasize that taste is subjective, and others may find the cuisine to their liking. It's possible that the restaurant’s style simply did not align with my personal palate. In conclusion, Tzunun Mexican restaurant offers exceptional service and praiseworthy presentation of their dishes. However, I believe there is room for improvement in terms of flavor to better match the high standard set by the service and presentation. I would still recommend Tzunun to others, as the experience may vary based on individual preferences.

    Each visit to Tzunun has been fantastic, it has quickly become one of my favorite spots to eat in the area. The staff are amazingly friendly and always very helpful in offering suggestions when asked, I have never been lead astray. The selection of Mezcal and Tequila is substantial, with quality options at multiple price points. As for the dining menu, happy hour offers some delicious chicken wings as well as other great options. For a starter, the mussels were some of the best I have had in a long while… the broth is savory and hearty. There are many options on the dinner menu which are all fantastic, however the Conchinita Pibil easily stands out as my top dish. Seriously, this place is worth a try.
