Dined on patio with a business colleague. Service was excellent. Food was amazing - especially enjoyed small plates and trying different items. Chef made great use of seasonal ingredients. Can’t wait to go back! Miel is a gem in the midst of so may touristy restaurants.

After living in Nashville 13 years and frequenting numerous restaurants, Miel has now been elevated to the top of our list - the mixtures of flavors was pure perfection, from the amazing roasted cabbage to the braised pork shoulder - simply fantastic

Delicious food on their patio under a peach tree laden with fruit. We shared the smoked eggplant with their homemade bread, peach and coppa salad, and pork with gnocchi parisienne. We had a delicious Italian red wine from Basilicata. Fantastic dinner! We thought it was better than Husk the night before.

Advertised on google as French cuisine but was not French food, very limited menu, slow service despite not being very busy, horrible decor, other patrons were loud and sound echoed round the whole restaurant.

Loved our meal at Miel. The bacon peach cornbread was amazing, our table especially enjoyed the short ribs and fish dishes. Our person who has lots of allergies was accommodated without a problem and her meal was perfect and yummy.
Both the desserts we ordered were yummy. Hubby loved the peach crumble, and took home the remaining for a next day treat.

The service was very friendly, but very busy. She did her best with the number of tables she was covering.

Would highly recommend Miel. A lovely evening.

The highlight is the high quality, creative slow food that you won't find at many restaurants. OpenTable describes it as contemporary French, didn't seem very French to me, but it is contemporary. The extensive wine list has a lot of French wine. Service, ambiance, are OK but not great. Like many contemporary restaurants, it's quite noisy, but even with a hearing problem I could understand my partner.

Our favorite early summer dishes were the ramp/morel pasta, the pork shoulder gnocchi, the peach salad, and the dessert of berries & cream with coconut pound cake. Southern France part of white wine list amazing. Grappa taste test: Sicily vs. Amarone, you decide!

I'm a fan, so...but, even after 10 years, Miel keeps getting better and better. Last night, we had a 45-day dry-aged prime rib that might have been thing to ever happen to a cut of beef, scallops and mushroom dumplings, and desserts that simply stole the show. There are subtle--and I mean beautifully subtle--Japanese notes making their way into the cooking now and if you aren't on the patio RIGHT NOW enjoying a superb, well-chosen cocktail and wine list, why not? The service is as it always has been, the best in town--experienced folks who know the restaurant and have invested time to know the cuisine, the pace, and their customers. There isn't a better dining experience in Nashville where you feel more loved from start to finish. Thank you, Seema, AGAIN.

This is my new favorite restaurant!! The food was amazing, our server was so down to earth and helpful. The cabbage dish was such a surprising delight, and we loved the pork shoulder dish. I usually like to try new places, but it’s going to be hard not to go back here time and again.

The slow-poached squid is one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. My mind was blown. The strawberry salad was wonderful with seasonal, local, perfectly ripe strawberries. We ordered the small ramp and morel pasta dish to share, oh my, what a treat. The halibut was delicious, but slightly over-salted for my taste. There was a lovely wine selection as well. I wish we'd had room for desserts because they sounded wonderful.

The feel of the restaurant was warm, intimate and welcoming. The service was friendly, helpful and prompt.

We left satiated, happy and excited to go back.

We loved every bite!!! Everything came to the table in good time. The waiter, David, kept our schedule in mind and made good recommendations when asked. We had some spicy toast starter. Very interesting . Very good. We also had a bamboo with white strawberries. Also pretty and very good. The salmon was to die for. Loved loved the salmon!! We had cheesecake for dessert. Amazing cheesecake!! Wish I had the recipe. It was light, lemony, and again beautiful to look at. I'm a romantic and a pretty good cook myself. I appreciate good food with the proper portions served with a creative flare. Thank you so much Miel ❤

Food and service are always top notch here. My most recent visit only confirmed that. My party enjoyed the grouper preparation and the nettles and morels entree. Both were delicious and appropriately portioned. We began with the white asparagus salad and the strawberry salad which were both lovely to the eye and the palate. The drinks we ordered with dinner were also spot on. You can be assured of a wonderful dining experience when making a visit to Miel.
