I went to the restaurant at the exact time of my reservation, but I faced a locked door. They are closed in the middle of the day, I saw on site. However, never I was noticed that my online reservation with OpenTable was invalid. Someone should have warned or, even better, I should have never been able to reserve a spot for that time of the day.

This misadventure is seriously disappointing and I think I might never go there again due to the personnel's lack of basic organizational abilities, which can be interpreted as a sign of disrespect for the customer.

First time, there but not first time tapas. Food was very good. Lots of choices. Wine choices were good as well. Highly recommend.

We made a return trip here after visiting a few years ago for the Montreal Jazz festival. Z Tapas is well located to many of the jazz festival stages. We went for a tasting of all 12 tapas choices. One was better than the next and a great way to try many different items. Highly recommend this. Service was great and atmosphere was trendy. A must when in Montreal.

Some interpretations of traditional tapas left a bit to be desired, so try with an open mind that this place is, in fact, located in Québec.

Efficient bilingual service and approachable prices make this a good fallback to other more popular options near the Place des Arts district.

The food was great as was the presentation. I had a nice cocktail and servers were friendly and efficient! Thé terrasse was a wind tunnel and kind of barren so we ate inside which was very cute. I will definitely go back!

Very unfortunate experience. We had to wait 15 to 20 minutes for service and were then told that we cannot be served!

Otherwise Montreal is full of happy, helpful and courteous people. This one was an exception.

Le menu dégustation était fabuleux. Nous avons gouté aux 12 tapas suggérés. L’ambiance avec pianiste et trompettiste était très classe. Il y avait cependant un groupe de jeunes femmes très bruyant qui gâchait la soirée.

Delicious food, I love tapas because you get to try a little bit of everything. Service was a little slow but understandable because it was A Saturday night. Will go back.

Delicious tapas but the service was poor. During our meal our waiter never checked on us. After our meal our waiter never brought us a dessert menu after we told him we were interested. We decided to head out instead of ordering dessert but then their credit card processing machines were down. They offered us a drink or dessert on the house which we obliged. Afterward, they still couldn't process our credit card. They finally told us we could pay for our bill at the front desk of the hotel that they are part of. Over an hour was wasted trying to pay for our bill.

We were very pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is located in the Zero-1 hotel and had last minute space on a Saturday night. Despite our trepidation, the food, the service and the entire experience was excellent. We ordered 5 plates and a white sangria. All were excellent as were each of the staff that waited on us. The live jazz duet was a wonderful surprise.

We will be back.

A friend and I went for dinner before a show. we had the tapas of the day (six tapas each). all of them were amazing. from the octopussy, scallops to the lamb and the filet mignon. Even the classical beef empanada was prepared to perfection. the service was professional, with the attention needed without being intrusive.

I will certainly go back

The place was great. Our only issue was the noise level. There was a wonderful band playing, but it was WAY too loud. We were seated at the back of the room, but we couldn't hear our friends across the table so we had to yell. We did ask the waiter to please turn it down, which they eventually did. Other than that, it was great. And they offered a "spectacle" discount which was amazing. We were off to see a show at PDA. I will be back for sure!

We discovered this place on Tripadvisor. short walking distance to Place des Arts. Tried the degustation plate. And we had quite enough for 2. Tables are not too close to one another. Staff is very kind and attentive. Young & entrepreneurial manager really wants this place to be perfect. And I think he will succeed.
