USED to be great.... I've been to Tin Angel a handful of times and always had a great experience, until my last visit about a week ago. After waiting a pretty long time to receive our entrees, they brought my boyfriend the wrong entree. Our server didn't seem to fazed by the incident and only brought him a piece of bread while we waited. I ended up finishing my entree by the time his arrived. When we got our check, I figured that something would have been comped or we would have been given a discount, but nope, everything was charged. My boyfriend and I are both servers and when these kinds of things happen to our tables, we make sure the customer gets the benefit of OUR mistake. This was an expensive, disappointing experience, we will NOT be returning.
lovely regardless of the occasion. The ambiance is consistently warm and intimate, and I've never had bad service. The waitstaff is accommodating -- and they've even begun to recognize us when we come in. Their eggplant parmesan is some of the best I've had -- so good, in fact, that I care very little that they've become inconsistent in adding other vegetarian options. We'll keep going back as long as we live in Nashville! This restaurant is a testament to the quality you get when you avoid large, generic chains.
Good food, service, ambience, location. Pleasant meal in Nashville. The lamp chops were pretty darn good and the mashed potatoes were pleasing. I am purposefully overlooking the fact that the restaurant has no clue what seafood gumbo is, but the seafood soup with rice was decent. I really like the building decor. The wait staff was hip and friendly. I would recommend this place to people.
Great Food, Good Service. My friend and I went to The Tin Angel the other night it was a Wednesday night and they were very slow. We could not decide what wine to get so we asked for a sample of a Shraz, the waitress brought us ONE glass for both of us to sample the wine!! That might have been okay if we had been a couple but we were only co-workers. We both ordered the Mahi Mahi with a japanelo & pineapple chuney. The fish was served on a bed of coconut rice. Our meal was wonderful, one of the best pieces of fish I have had in months! The wine was good and we also ordered the house flat bread pizza which was alos wonderful. The food was a great value and the ambiance was warm and inviting. Will definitely go again soon!
Amazing Food...AWFUL Customer Relations.
If you are going out any day of the week for a quick bite, this elegant little restaurant is ideal. The food is always consistent and the fish special is almost always to die for. The pricing is completely reasonable from everything from the apps to the entrees. However, the service is absolutely atrocious. Where did these people come from? Upon entrance, my wife and I were snapped at by the hostess, after she had ignored our presence for approximately 5 minutes. I am terribly sorry to have inconvienced this girl to do her job. After giving her the benefit of the doubt and pleading our case, she snapped again quite rudely that they were on a wait. On a Friday or Saturday night, that is to be expected for a place that is quality, however, we were quite offended at this girl's manners. Talking to patrons like infants is NOT good customer service.
After waiting patiently, we were seated. Thank you very much rude little hostess. However, the food almost made up for her behavior, almost...if we had gotten a competent server! Her inadequacies on the wine list were absolutely unforgivable. After selecting our entrees we had asked the server what kind of wine she thought should be paired with our meals...seeing as how we had gotten the steak salad and the angel wing to start off with...and then a couple of things to split. She looked at us like a deer in the headlights! She had absolutely no knowledge of the wine list whatsoever.(PS- It's pronounced tem-prah-NEE-yoh...even though it's spelled Tempranillo. All I wanted was a wine that would go with all of the food that we ordered! I am sorry if that is asking too much, but I halfway expect a place like the Tin Angel to have servers on hand with that kind of knowledge. After the meal was delivered to our table promptly, we forgot everything else that had happened, it appeared to have all been a bad dream. The food is absolutely delicious. I have never had a bad meal there, just awful experiences
Tin Angel. We experienced Tin Angel yesterday, using a gift certificate we received. It was a pleasant experience, with wonderful food and exemplary service. As we got there before 5 p.m., we were usure as to whether we could order from the dinner menu, but that was no problem. I would recommend this restaurant, and we plan to go back.
Service can (and in this case, did) ruin a great meal. This was my first (and last) time visiting this establishment. I had heard about the Tin Angel in many reviews here in Nashville and was happy to finally find the time to go. However, from the moment of arrival all that I can say about my hostess was R-U-D-E. I was trying to ask if there would be a wait time and before I could she threw a finger pointing upward in the air in my face. Not a word said, just the finger. Eyes rolling she then said it would be at least a 20 minute wait. She had no knowledge of what I was going to ask in first place. What if it was just a statement that I had more arriving to my party and needed to give them time to set up for the numbered arrival? How rude! Needless to say, I left. My friends said that I may have missed a good meal but to me, service is the quality that reigns superior to a menu. I hope the good people (if there are any) at Tin Angel learn from this. If only...
Outstanding Sunday Brunch. My husband and I started our Nashville Sunday with terrific Bloody Mary's and Fried Green Tomatoes. The menu was so interesting that we had a hard time deciding. We both chose omelettes, mine Greek, his accompanied by pork tenderloin. Food was great, and the service was really prompt, despite the fact that all tables were filled! We would definitely go again, indeed maybe during this trip-again.
Fantastic!!!. I love the Tin Angel!!! We eat there often and it is always consistently fabulous!! The wait staff are excellent and if you let them, they will always guide you to what is best. My favorit waitress is great about helping us pair wine with specials or what we have ordered for the evening. My husband and I really enjoying eating what is fresh and local, which is signature of Tin Angel. We are always impressed and feel satisfied. For the quality of service, food, wine and atmosphere, the Tin Angel is a must!!
Too bad the service is poor, because the food is good. First time to Tin Angel, girls weekend in Nashville on Sat 7/28/07. Told no wait on the phone, half of the tables were empty at arrival, hostess "flitted" her hands at us and said "20 minute wait" for 5. It was. Prepped the table using 4 regular adult chairs and one small childrens chair for 5 adults. Brought us Mimosas instead of Bellini's after going back to the bar to check on availability of cocktails. Couldn't divide the check. From the hostess to the waitress, these ladies had an "attitude" from the minute we walked in. The food was served very quickly (restaurant half full, back room shut down by 9pm on Saturday night). And the meal was delicious. Perhaps we happened to eat on "training" night! ??
