“Lovely setting and nicely varied menu.”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

My husband and I spent an enjoyable Sunday afternoon at Barzin. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area and found the menu to be just right for the atmosphere. Fresh local seafood and a menu perfect for the casual feel of this new wine bar. Just what Amelia Island needed!

“One, two, three strikes your out!”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

I have tried BarZin a few times and have no reason to return. They consistantly offer poor service, untrained staff, and sub par food. I recently joined a group of six- all six had unacceptable food. We paid our big bill and left. We will not be back. Save your valuable time and money.

“Great food and wine!”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

Finally, a restaurant that has knowledgeable staff to make wine recommendations! The wine flights are quite reasonable, and the menu has just the right amount of diversity. We had a shared appetizer, an entree salad and the pork tenderloin, plus one of us had the wine flight ($15 for 4 selections) and the check was $55, pre-tip.
My salad was quite pleasing, and hubby's pork was done perfectly. Portions were "just right", leaving room for dessert and coffee. Unfortunately, we didn't look at the desserts, but will definitely do that next time.
There is indoor/outdoor seating, and if weather permits, we will opt for outdoor at our next visit, as my only faintly negative comment was it can get pretty noisy if there is a group (as there was last evening), making conversation a bit difficult.
The owner was very visible, greeting diners and it shows that he pays attention to details.
Food service was wonderful, attentive but not hovering. No request went unfulfilled.
We have out of town guests coming shortly, and this will be one restaurant that we will be proud to host them!

“Great food, great atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

Cozy bistro. Menu has a lot of variety so there is something for everyone. We have sat both outside and in. We are locals and would love to see this restaurant stay as it is at the top for restaurants on the island!

“Off to a good start.”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

New restaurant at a good location on the restaurant-challenged South End of Amelia Island. Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with well-prepared appetizing food. Good luck to them!
