We were SO grateful to be able to get to Tin Angel before they close their doors after 30 amazing and comforting years of serving our neighborhood. The place was PACKED with teary-eyed diners, and we wanted to sample all of our old menu favorites one more time. Thank you, Rick, for being a true leader in the Nashville Independent Restaurant world. You will be missed, but you've EARNED a bit of a rest!

I’ve always loved Ton Angel and used to dine here frequently. So, I wanted to get in one last meal, before they closed up..... and take my boyfriend there, as he’d never been.

Drinks & Dessert was great.
Our crab cake appetizers were only so so..
We both ordered chicken dishes and they were both way undercooked.

Well, it's with a sad heart that I write my last review for Tin Angel as they are closing on March 23, 2019. We have been patrons of this institution since we moved here in 2006, and this was probably the best meal we've ever had there! The Filet with red wine reduction, the NY Strip with Brandy & Green Peppercorn sauce and the Angel Burger ALL cooked to perfection. As usual. The wine list was perfect and we even had desert. If you get a chance for one last meal here, do it. We miss you already, Tin Angel. And thank you to Rick and Vicki for many wonderful meals. All the best to you in your next adventures!

After hearing about this restaurant was going to be closing later this month, my husband and I wanted to have one more visit. The food was AMAZING, as always, and we are so sad to see this restaurant close.

The only real complaint I had about this particular experience (if it even matters) was our waitress. When spending the amount of money we spent for dinner, I expect to be treated a bit nicer. She did her job, but nothing over the top. I had better service the next day at IHOP. She didn’t ask if we wanted an appetizer, I had to tell her we wanted one. I got the impression she assumed that was all we were ordering. I had to tell her we would like to order out entrees. She didn’t mention anything about the daily special to us; although I knew there was one. She refilled our water, but I had to ask for a refill on my tea. She never asked if my husband wanted a second beer, which he would have. After dinner, her body language suggested she assumed we wouldn’t want dessert; however, we did and had to ask for a dessert menu. After our meal and 20% tip, we spent $99. For that price, I would have liked to have been treated a bit better.

You better hurry if you want to dine at the neighborhood favorite! It's closing its doors on March 23rd. Tin Angel has always offered creative, consistent, and delicious food and cocktails every time we've had the pleasure of dining here. A rare combination of neighborhood hangout and fine dining, it's a perfect setting for a business lunch, a romantic dinner or a large gathering of friends and family to a common table. We're going to miss Tin Angel more than we know. We can only hope that whomever plans the next use of this space considers the years of good will and great food that have been served here.

This fabulous restaurant is closing -- not for lack of business, but because its owners are retiring. Tin Angel has always delivered on food and atmosphere and will be missed by many Nashvillians. If you are fortunate enough to have a reservation this week, bon appetit!
