A word from Tin Angel

We feature (over 20 years) great food and excellent service in a comfortable art filled historic environment at reasonable prices.
Our freestanding fireplace, old brick walls, antique cafe tables, period tin ceiling and locally cut, milled and built on site walnut bar frame the restaurant.
We present modern American cuisine with French, Italian and Latin influences, using local, sustainable and organic whenever possible.
The menu changes seasonally and specials are offered daily along with weekly prix fixe dinners.
Our comprehensive wine list is designed to complement the menu.
If we wouldn't eat it we won't serve it.

    Tin Angel delivers great service of high quality foods selected from an innovative menu. You can always count on the food being properly prepared, attractively plated and promptly served with appropriate attention given during the meal. All that and moderate prices too.

    This restaurant and our waitress Amanda made our one night in Nashville amazing. We ordered the fixe prix menu and all three courses were absolutely delicious. First course mussels, second pasta with a melange of fresh vegetables in a sage brown butter sauce and third a chocolate Carmel tart. These items should be permanently on the menu. We can't wait to visit Nashville again to see what is new on their menu. also the brick walls and tin ceiling give this place a great warm welcome feeling.

    Nothing particularly good or bad about this resturant. Food is not raw when ordered, or at least did not taste fresh, so don't plan on a mouthwatering experience. But the food was good for what it was.

    The first plate was a crabcake appetizer. The 2 cakes were the diameter of a silver dollar and a 1/2 thick. I thought it was a joke when she brought it out. I would have been ok with 4 cakes being this small but it was not worth the $. I ordered and received a seared Beef tenderloin. Have you seen the commercials on TV making fun of really small portions? This entree was one of those. A full plate with a 2 1/2" long piece of meat stacked on 3 small potatoes and a few peices of mushroom. for 28$ entree it was a child portion. This is the first place my wife and I have been that we felt ripped off!! We were still hungry ! I love Nashville and reside here and this the only place in town we have experienced that. We are not big eaters either!

    My boyfriend and I went for restaurant week. There was a wide variety of items on the price fixe menu for a reasonable price. All of the dishes were creative, but inviting, leaving for a delightful, incredibly delicious meal of both comfort foods with a twist as well as more impressive culinary endeavors. We chose different dishes and enjoyed taking bites of each others meals for a very diverse dining experience. We can't wait to go back and try more of what this Nashville Original Gem has to offer!

    I went here with a group of 6 to celebrate my birthday and we were all extremely dissapointed with our service. Our waitress was absent, rude and not pleasant to deal with. It took her over 30 minutes to 'locate' their special menu for restaurant week. Granted our reservation was at 8:45PM and were starving by the time she actually helped. When asked to take a group picture she held her finger up and looked annoyed to be asked such a question. . Needless to say it was pretty obvious she didn't care due to the 18% gratuity already included. The food was great but that's about the only thing.

    The food was very good, started off with shrimp bisque, very rich in flavor. And the caramel chocolate cake for dessert was to die for. However the noise level was almost unbearable. It was hard go have a conversation and the background noise made it almost uncomfortable.

    We chose The Tin Angel recently as part of Nashville Restaurant Week. I thought the prix fixe menu for the week was innovative (not what was on the regular menu) and all the courses together only came to $20.14 (for 2014, naturally), which was exceptionally reasonable, just as their customary menu is as well. The presentation, quality of ingredients and unique flavors of our dishes were nothing short of outstandeing! The atmosphere is lively yet not too loud to talk, and the lighting is low enough to provide a sense of intimacy despite all the tables being full around us. I can't say enough good things about our experience here. This restaurant has been around for many years, a real testament to owner Rick Bolsom and his fine staff.

    I have wanted to eat her for a long time so when we were in Nashville this time we made a reservation. We were seated promptly when we arrived. Service was good. The restaurant was a little loud and it would be difficult to talk if you had a large party. We both enjoyed our food. Parking can be an issue but we were lucky. We would eat here again.

    We've been going for years and yet they've recently closed for lunch and are only open for dinner. They are open on Sundays which we appreciate as many restaurants in our 'hood are not. They have innovative specials plus old favorites, vegetarian options too, we like to sit in the front room as the back one can get loud with the tin ceiling and brick walls

    Our experience at Tin Angel was very pleasurable. My wife had the Potato Crusted Flounder and I had the Shrimp and Lobster Risotto. Both of our meals were cooked and seasoned tp perfection. We dined early, so crowds were not a problem, the restaurant had a nice ambience and character. We will dine there again and recommend to friends.

    This is my sons favorite restaurant, so we went for his 17th birthday. He's a vegetarian and it's not always easy to find places with multiple options. All of the appetizers looked great and we ended up with 3. Fried green tomatoes, watermelon bites with feta, and a fried goat cheese salad. Each was delicious, as was our main courses and dessert. It was a lovely night.
