Miel is a classically influenced, refined bistro with a focus on locally sourced, organic produce & meats. Housed in the former Johnson's Meat Market building in the historic portion of Sylvan Park, the decor of is warm and simple with the old, oak Franklin Court House benches flanking the walls, Bling Fish Series art from Herb Williams on the walls and stained concrete floors. The bar is charming and comfortable, focusing on classic cocktails and spirits with a weekday happy hour from 5:00-6:30. Enjoy dining on the patio on warm nights or sitting by the outside fire on cool nights. The BARN is the perfect place to host an event for up to 26 seated and up to 50 for a standing reception. Miel's herb garden adorns the front walkway and fruit trees are abundant in the patio garden.

Luckily for us it was pouring with rain outside so the kitchen was cooking for just a few of us! Creative cuisine, leaning on French influence... a delicious, healthy alternative to traditional French food. Friendly attentive staff and the owner was in came by for a chat. They can shake up a good Vodka Martini if you like that sort of thing. We very much enjoyed the evening.

As much as I love trying new restaurants, I can't believe I had never been to Miel. I absolutely LOVE this place and it's now my new favorite. Everything was perfect. The food delicious, the service fantastic, and the ambiance best of all. They have truly talent in the kitchen and I can't wait to go back.

Really hate to say it, but we did not enjoy Miel. We were seated at 7:30, but the waitress was so slow, we didn't even get our drinks or order our food until 8:15pm. Unfortunately, the service was just so incredibly slow. The food was insanely salty as well. My husband enjoyed the short ribs, but the other dishes were just super salty and we couldn't finish our food. I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant, but just didn't enjoy the service or the food like I thought I would.

Ate here while on vacation in Nashville. Food and service at Miel were exceptional. The pork shoulder dish was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. And make sure you leave room for dessert. We had the carrot cake and the basque cheesecake and they were to die for. We would have gone back again the next night if we weren’t leaving for home. We’ve eaten at lots of great restaurants around the country and Miel was up there with the best of them.

In the sea of new restaurants opening every week, it seems, in Nashville, this neighborhood gem can be overlooked, but don't! It's cozy, relatively quiet, inventive menu, and a great value. If you are tired of the enormous, noisy dining establishments, book a table here!

We started out with appetizers and wine on the back patio and then moved inside for a delicious dinner . An interesting and eclectic menu . Enjoyed soft shelled crab , carrots and sturgeon for dinner . Everything was delicious and topped it off with Basque cheesecake . Service was great . Miel never disappoints and we look forward to returning .

I have eaten here before and always enjoyed it. Quit and off the "beaten path" On this occasion, I ordered the braised short ribs, as did another in our party. Mine was about 50% pure fat but my friends was clearly 90% pure fat. We brought it to the attention of the waitress, who kindly dismissed the issue. I called over the owner, who is usually very nice and accommodating. She also pretty much dismissed the issue and told us that when that happens, they usually give you a bigger piece of meat. That was definitely NOT the case. We figured she would "comp" us the main dish or a glass of wine or even a desert. But nothing. That is sure not customer service. I will never go back and I will go out of my way to tell others about our experience. I am so disappointed in both the chef and the owners. Being gracious would have gone a long way to address the problem. As a result, they have lost 4 potential return customers. The rest fo the meal was fine, but there was NO excuse for this poorly handled situation

Valentines Day menu looked exciting, so we booked our reservation. The restaurant atmosphere was fantastic. The fact that gratuity was already set at 20% for the Valentines special menu made it seem that the waitstaff was not as attentive as they normally would be. The food was good, but not quite as good as I expected. I’d go back on a normal night to try it again.

Everything at Miel revolves around the kitchen and the food, which is consistently outstanding. Service is unobtrusive. Restaurant is quiet and good for conversation. Minor issues with this restaurant are access to parking, which can be difficult when nearby popular proletarian restaurants are busy, and the chairs and benches for seating could be more comfortable.
