Tin Pan Alley Provincetown Ratings and Reviews
We went for my birthday dinner, and to be honest I wasn't all that impressed with the menu. We ordered the flatbread appetizer and it was underwhelming, and the one entree I had interest in wasn't all that great. This is probably a great waterfront place to get drinks during the day, but as it was dark there wasn't much to see outside. We also went later and felt rushed getting through our meal.
Our dinner at Tin Pan Alley was quite good. Everyone loved their food - 2 of us got the lobster medallions, which was a well prepared lazy man lobster, and 2 of us got the Moque - a seafood stew in a Thai inspired spicy broth. Everyone loved their food. The kitchen was very accommodating and adapted one Moque to exclude shrimp (due to a food allergy).
We were fortunate enough to enjoy outdoor seating overlooking the town beach and harbor. While the evening was a little cool, the restaurant provided blankets. Great idea!
Our only disappointment was with the service. We put notes in the reservation by Open Table that there was a food allergy and a birthday. She did not mention either. Also, we were never told the dinner specials. She was nice enough, but we had to tell her to refill our waters, ask for another beer, request blankets, etc.
All else was great! We'd definitely go again - but would certainly request a different server.
Celebrating a milestone birthday with friends. The food was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The Halibut was especially delicious sitting on top of spinach and white beans. Our server, Dovile, was just as sweet as could be and very attentive This restaurant will not disappoint.
We actually went the night before and had a cocktail outside on the deck overlooking the water. It was cozy and just the right place for a pre-dinner drink! We will definitely return to Tin Pan Alley on our next trip to P'Town.
Appetizer didn't come out until the meal-the quinoa cake-very bland. The shrimp cocktail that I asked to come out with my meal came as the appetizer. The sauce with it was runny and not good. It took forever, close to an hour and a half, for the entrees to come out. Despite that the restaurant was 1/2 filled. A table next to us stormed out after complaining about the wait and their food came out cold. It was an attractive place, on the water but not worth it at all
Tin Pan Alley was fantastic. There were 5 of us and we got oysters, 2 appetizers as well as 4 entrees and shared everything. Everything tasted amazing. For entrees we had the stuffed pork chop special, the steak special, the macadamia crusted rainbow trout and the Moqueca which was like a seafood stew. 2 of the party are gluten free and we had no problems. SO many choices. Our server Brendan was so helpful and attentive. I would definitely recommend and would love to go back.
Food...Amazing. Wine...Amazing. Atmosphere...Amazing. Waterfront seating...Amazing
I have NO bad words to say about TPA. Joseph was our server and he nailed it. The kitchen nailed it; the entertainment nailed it; the bar nailed it. Again, NO BAD WORDS! Went for our 22nd anniversary on 7/22/17 and never left. Closed the place. The piano player played for about four hours straight and EVERYONE in the bar sang along. Met friends there the next night for dinner and did exactly the same. If you go to PTown go to TPA. If you don't...you'll miss out on the BEST food on Commercial Street and in the Town!
Everything about my experience at Tin Pan Alley was wonderful - from the friendly, prompt, and professional service, to the amazing food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a a top notch dining experience and who appreciates food prepared by an incredibly creative and imaginative chef.
I have eaten here many times. The service is always very professional and friendly. I usually eat outside where the noise level is very low. The outside tables (about 8) are one of my favoraite places to eat in town and look out on the harbor. The front of the restaurant where the bar is can be quite noisy, the rear of the restaurant is a bit quieter. I had a house salad. The greens were very fresh but only as exciting as house salads usually are. I had the quinoa cake appetizer and the duck confit egg roll for my main. The egg rolls were a real standout, good amount of duck, very tender and moist, perfectly crisp wrapper and delicous sauce. The quinoa cakes were a bit bland for my taste, on the small side, and could have used a little more crisp. Just personal taste. My sister had lamb lollypops which were tender and cooked just as ordered. Another guest had a steak which they liked. I had a margarita which had enough tequila in it to taste and real lime juice, I believe. My cousin requested that the red wine be chilled to 65 degrees on this 80 degree evening. Brendan our server complied with this request without a problem. I know this review may sound like faint praise but the total dining experience here is really very good and I keep coming back with all the other great options (Jimmy's, Mews, etc) in town. The price point here ($26-$36) is just a few dollars above many other places which isn't much but maybe enough to make it a bit easier to find a table during the busy season.
The restaurant is in a wonderful location in P'town right across from the town hall, but with a private patio right on the beach. We've eaten here two summers in a row, and each time have had wonderful meals. Their seafood stew, Moqueca, is totally different than anything else we've ever had on the Cape and is absolutely delicious.
What a disappointment! This is the first time the reviews on Open Table have been so wrong. Ptown is one of our favorite places and we've had some excellent meals. The Mews, Mac's, Front Street, Bubula's - all wonderful. Without a doubt Tin Pan Alley was the most mediocre, overpriced restaurant we've had the misfortune to experience. When we were seated, I was surprised to hear that there were no specials to supplement the limited menu. We started with the tuna tartare- nothing special (although in retrospect it turned out to be the highlight).
Even though the restaurant was empty, the entrees took forever to arrive, and it was not worth the wait ...
My daughter and I both made the mistake of ordering the lamb. $38 for 4 anemic lamb chops (2 over cooked, 2 raw) with inedible dried out, salty polenta fries. My husband's hanger steak was meh and the spinach was in a pool of oil that drowned everything on the plate.
Save your money.
The server recommended the watermelon gazpacho to start. It was delicious with drizzled creme fraiche and basil oil. Then lamb chops and trout for entrees. Couldn't have been better. The cocktails were perfect and made to order. Our server knew the menus down to the last detail. We asked for an outside table, and they honored our request. We had fun exchanges with neighboring diners. A good time was had by all!
I knew when I placed my order we were in for trouble... I ask for rice instead of polenta and the chef said no!! Even though rice was being served with many other dishes!
We ordered 2 entrée's, macadamia trout and med-rare lamb chops with figs. Both items came out burnt like a 10 year old prepared and cooked them. However, Nick the waiter did a nice job for us. Looks like we wouldn't be going back to Tin Pan Alley
My husband and I had a delicious dinner at Tin Pan Alley. We were thrilled with the view and then food. We ordered fantastic halibut and a wonderful seafood curry dish. The portions were very generous. The room is light and airy. Lots of people were dining on the patio. We will be back.
We had dinner here during a day visit to Provincetown and picked it because it was on Open Table and we wanted to be sure to get a reservation so we could make our ferry trip back to Boston. Overall it was good. The brick chicken was okay. My partner had a fish dish that he really enjoyed. We had our 12-year-old son with us. The menu isn't particularly kid friendly which we should have checked out in advance. The patio is beautiful. Only problem was the air conditioner from the restaurant next door was right behind us and smelled horrible (mold?). The host and server were very friendly.
We had a great romantic dinner here! They have outdoor waterfront dining and while it's still a little chilly in the evening, it's worth it, plus they offer blankets to people! What other restaurant does that?! The food was very good... Just great flavor combinations and fresh ingredients (we loved the seafood). To top it off the server was awesome... He was so personable but totally down to earth! I can't believe we hadn't tried it here before, we'll definitely be back!
We had delicious cocktails (on the deck) and a terrific meal at the wonderful restaurant. Very creative menu, ideal for foodies. Several crafted cocktails and martini choices. Very accommodating wait staff ( Brendan/Leo). They focused on how to make your dining experience memorable. Highly recommend the mocaco, trout and chicken under brick. Chef (Raul Garcia) visited the table and is working his same magic, spicy, tasty Brazilian, as when he was at Edgwie. Plan to have a special evening.
Out of the four in my party, one felt his meal could have tasted better (a sandwich with bacon on it). My friend who had the pork raved about, claiming it to be "the best pork she ever tasted". I found the tempeh burger with cheese to be delicious, as were the fries that came with it. The cod entree was described as "good". Our server was very friendly and attentive. My biggest complaint was the wait for our meals. A little on the long side. There is not a huge selection to choose from on the menu. And many entrees could pass as lunch entrees. Overall, a very good dining experience. To get to the dining area you have to pass through the bar area, which, appeared to be hoppin'. Complete with a piano, patrons looked like they were enjoying happy hour. Will check out the cocktail hour next time I am in P-Town!
