Tzin Wine & Tapas Ratings and Reviews
The best wine bar in town, with proprietors who take pride in their wine and are passionate to share it with you openly and unpretentiously. I just ask for a wine by describing what I want, and I've never been disappointed. If you're a lover of wine, this is a spot for you!
We went to Tzin for a girls night out and we were all super impressed! It’s such a cozy vibrant atmosphere. We were surprised at how small the restaurant was but feel it definitely contributed to our great experience as lots of personal attention was given to every table to make everyone’s experience unique. The owner was very welcoming and helped us choose fantastic wines that weren’t even on the list! We did the “Feed Me” tasting menu and had about 6 difference tapas dishes which were all super flavourful and had stunning presentation. We even had to order one additional plate because it was too good to only have once! The price for the quality and portion size was very reasonable. We highly enjoyed our dining experience and would recommend it to anyone who likes to step out of the norm and experience some authentic savoury tastes, great wine and amazing service!
Greeted warmly, seated promptly. Staff was very knowledgeable, made great suggestions. We chose the last item at the bottom of the menu called “feed me" which is they bring out dishes to share that are on and off the regular menu-kitchen’s choice. Wow-every dish delicious & well presented. Not knowing what was coming was also so much fun!
My husband and I are long-term patrons of this restaurant. We always enjoy the owners and staff, the food, the wine pairings and the attentiveness of the staff to our needs. We usually come here to celebrate a special occasion.
The only think I can think of that could be improved is that sitting at the first table as you walk in can be very cold in winter due to the door opening and closing all the time. Perhaps the owners could provide light weight throws to keep us warm. I would accept one :) !
Otherwise, brilliant...thanks once again for the hospitality.
This was our first visit to Tzin and we will definitely be back. The ambiance is cozy and intimate. Our server was attentive, charming and funny and recommended the “feed us” option for our party of four. We were not disappointed, the steady stream of sharing plates were varied and all delicious. A lovely evening of great food and wine!
One of my favorite places that has not yet disappointed. Atmosphere was warm and welcoming, food was very good and the service was outstanding. It was for my daughters birthday and her first time at Tzin and she was very excited about the experience. I'll definitely be back again.
Tzin delivered as promised by all previous reviewers. It really is tiny with seating for about 20. Kitchen is in the front and you can see it all going on if you have to wait a few minutes for your table. They were running a wee bit late & we were given complementary prosecco while we waited (we had said no thanks but it was delivered anyways!). We did not wait long and were seated as soon as the other guests left. We had heard & read that we could simply have food & wine chosen for us which is how we decided to proceed. Hosts were attentive and explained each dish & wine brought to us. We enjoyed everything! The experience was fantastic and we would all do this again. Just to note, our cost was about $100 per person all in; we knew that going in & were ok with it but it is something to be aware of.
We have been twice and have had great service, food, and wine each time! Both times we chose the chef's tasting option (?) where tapas are brought out until we are done eating and the food has been great each time! I am gluten free and am unable to tolerate lots of dairy (i.e. cheese, heavy cream, yogurt, etc.) and they were super accommodating. One of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton - highly recommend!
Very good experience for small tapas. But- the price was a little over the top
We have a tapas bar of equal par in highlands- and it is not as near as pricey.
Be prepared for a $230 bill for two. Nothing but wine and tapas
Always a treat to visit this restaurant. Great food, attentive and personal service, carefully chosen wine list - and it feels special because of the small space. A great spot for conversation with a good friend or a few - or your sweetie. Would recommend the falafel, patatas bravas and the flourless chocolate cake. Looking forward to my next visit with a meat-a-tarian to sample more.
Literally my favourite restaurant in edmonton. The first place I recommend to anyone from out of town. Always my first choice for a date. ALWAYS get the "feed me option." You can never go wrong. Staff are so accommodating with providing me with tapas that fit my dietary preferences (no pork or beef). I never leave this restaurant with a complaint!
Great and tasty food, really enjoyed the attention from the staff and their suggestions on what we should order. The wine was supper enjoyable and our seats at the bar was nice. I would recommend the bar as good for a date, since it really allow to people to focus on each other and makes for good conversation.
I’m always reminded by how special Tzin and its proprietors can be. You are always made to feel like the most important guest, that they’ve been waiting to see again no matter if it’s your first visit or your fiftieth.
The tight and cozy atmosphere helps make the experience personal and exclusive.
I was one of three and Identified a dietary preference, and was accommodated fully, and made to feel like my experience was as important as every guest there.
Thank you again for continuing to maintain such a great food and wine experience.
I chose right this time. The New Zealand fish was cooked perfectly and had a nice zesty cabbage to it. The elk sausage with potato salad was as good as before and would be a great permanent addition to the menu, if possible. The falafels with lime salsa and eggplant puree were bursting flavour. The raspberry chocolate torte was a good way to end the meal.
TZiN is Edmonton's finest. Atmosphere, intimate. Kelsey chose the menu: semi-seared tuna; arctic char; goose meatballs and grits; au gratin with srirachi heat; maple bacon; chocolate paté; toasted marshmallow lemon tart. World class experience; local talent. 🌟🌟🌟
Tzin is so much more than great food and wine, the owners are amazing and very knowledgeable. Turned my lovely anniversary evening into a dining tasting experience that you can't get at a bigger venue.
They are so personal and friendly. The goal is clear, to make every person feel at home and have an excellent experience!
Great place for a date, or just some friends who love wine and food.
