A consistently stunning experience for all your senses... the latest menu addition...deviled eggs, is a beautifully crafted and delicious option that shouldn't be missed. The wine selection is extensive and their paring is superb.

Went here for our anniversary and the care and attention that Cory and Kelsey took did and does not go unnoticed. My wife and I enjoyed every bite, the tuna was the highlight food wise. This place is s gem that if you haven’t had the chance to go you should. Thx for a wonderful evening!

Tzin has been great every time I’ve been there. The folks that run it are so kind and helpful and energetic. They exude this energy that makes you feel at ease and welcome. They’re incredibly helpful with the wine list, and food suggestions. Personally, I suggest getting the “Feed me” option, where they’ll bring out a selection of tapas, perfectly timed, that suit your wishes (I personally dislike seafood, and they are happy to accommodate). The small space is quite nice, with a feeling of intimacy without feeling cramped.
Highly and emphatically recommend.

We've been going to Tzin for years and now, even with all of the new great restaurants in Edmonton, we still make sure to get to Tzin. The staff is incredible, simple explanations of the food come with each dish - their knowledge of the wine pairings is second to none and they're great at making people feel at home. The evolution of the chef's cooking has been a delight to experience also as he is only getting better with time. Definitely will ALWAYS swing in for Tzin!

A nice place to go for a date night or special occasion. We did the ‘feed me’ option and while a couple of the dishes weren’t for us, most of them were very good. I’m unsure if the high price point matches the ambiance (very small) and quality of food, but all in all we enjoyed ourselves.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. It was another really great experience. The food is amazing. On both occasions we did the "close the menu" leaving the choices up to the staff to feed us. The service is attentive and executed in a highly efficient way without being at all intrusive. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Possibly the best place we have eaten at to date. Outstanding service with a variety of superb flavors that you cannot get anywhere else. Portions are perfect size, the wine list is plentiful and the creations of the chef left us wanting to come back again for more. Highly recommend for a date night and recommend trying the "Feed me" option.

Wow wow wow! I can't believe how long I waited to try this place. What an amazing experience we had on date night. Make a reservation and go, ASAP! This tiny spot is so intimate and I was amazed by what they did in this space. Glen was personable, not condescending or pretentious like some other people in the restaurant business. We surrendered control and said "feed me." This allows the lovely ppl at tzin to choose tapas for you. We told Glen "I don't like olives, he doesn't like mayonnaise based sauces, we love seafood. We're hungry." And they did the rest. This allows you to eat things that aren't even on the menu and to see their creativity flow. Highly recommend, and will be back. Thanks Glen!

Great dinner at Tzin. We had the ‘feed me’ option with wine pairings. While the portions were on the smaller side the food was well -executed and came to the table well -timed. The wine pairings went well with all the dishes. Particularly outstanding was their bacon dish but there was not a weak dish in the bunch. Typically I’m not a fan of tartar but their tuna tartar made me a convert. Service was friendly, welcoming, well-informed and just the ‘right amount’. We dropped about $300 for the two of us but no complaints at all.

Food is good. I just find the price for wine per glass ($15 for 6 oz) and $26 for a single skew of beef with 4 pieces too expensive. $19 for 4 boar meat balls?? I under tapas is small dishes for sharing, but it was just not much to share.

A patron has described Glen as the pulse of Tzin; Kelsey is its heart. Devilled foie gras - an ingenious creation; zesty falafel with jalapeno lime salsa; fresh PEI mussels, wild boar meatballs in a delicious maple whiskey sauce; and, the signature thick maple bacon with balsamic apple compote. Empress Gin lavender martinis. Tzin is, quite simply, a perfect evening.
Thank you, Kelsey & Glen!

Everything was fantastic. The only reason I did give full marks for value is that it is expensive, not that it is not worth it but, it is not a cheap night out if you are going for a full meal with wine and dessert.

The pulse of this very small restaurant is a Glen , the owner. He was an attentive charming server who has a contagious passion for the delicious inventive dishes he presents to your table. My favourites were the mushroom gnocchi and the bacon. Should I have the opportunity to visit Edmonton again, I'll definitely be paying Tzin another visit. Don't be disappointed. Reservations are a must!

Great food and service. It’s a very small restaurant so best for small companies (2-4 ideal).
Tried the “feed me” option which is where they randomly choose your dinner. Got 6 course meal for about $38-40. Worth it and left satisfied!
Definitely recommend coming here and being adventurous.
