GREAT !!!!!! – For a first timer at the Tin Angel the dinning experience was outstanding! The atmostsphere was very comfortable & plesent. My waiter was excellent, he made some outstanding recommondations and even went as far to explain in detail the menu and the wine list (as i am new to trying wine). He was very attentive to our needs & and are questions. I like to eat, the portions of food at the Tin Angel are generous to say the least. I would have to say the over all experience was GREAT!!!! I will be coming back the The Tin Angel and will also be recommending it to my friends.
Really good food in a very relaxing environment – After having a massage last week, I met up with a few girlfriends to have dinner and a glass of wine. We were going to go to Maggiano's, but one of the women wasn't eating pasta so we decided to go to Tin Angel, because it was right down the street. Really good choice! The atmosphere is very good. Brick walls made the restaurant look very inviting and warm. Our server was well prepared for the many questions we had about the menu. I had the Med Salad, which was fantastic. Just right with a glass of red wine. We all had different entrees and shared everything. What I really like about Tin Angel is that although the menu is not huge, it's so eclectic, that there's somethng for everyone, from salads to schnitzel. After dinner, we couldn't resist dessert, and although I'm not a really big sweets person, I was glad to see some basic sorbet on the menu. A lovely end to a lovely dinner.. without a huge amount of guilt. And one more thing, Tin Angel impressed me with quality food at prices that won't make you faint when you get the check.
getting drinks you pay for – My friend and I endured the wrath of the mean tea lady. I thought she was ficticious, but then I saw her face to face. I think I'm scarred for life. I had to go to tea therapy. All I wanted was the tea I paid for, but she washed it down the drain much like my hopes and dreams.
It all started last Sunday at Tin Angel. My friend and I sat down not knowing what to expect. I didn't know they only served brunch, and since I had breakfast already that day I wasn't really eager to eat another one (being a vegetarian, I only had a couple of choices). We had to get up to inform our hostess that we changed our mind. She asked, "Well, did you order anything?" We explained we ordered tea, but didn't drink it and she said the waiter would have to charge us. That was fine. After all, we were the ones that ordered them. What happened next was the strange part. I just paid $4.26 for two teas I didn't drink, but she took them to the back and poured them down the drain. Now why would I want to pay almost five bucks for tea I didn't drink? We asked her if she packed up our teas and she snapped, "Your waiter will have to do that." That made no sort of sense. So we were charged for tea we didn't drink just for her to dump it out and then have to pour us new ones. I really didn't get it. If you want a drink that you paid for, you might want to go somewhere else.
This cozy restaurant's inviting fireplace and cappuccino bar warm up West End Avenue. – In Short
This low-key neighborhood bistro features warm decor, with brick floors and a welcoming fireplace. Vanderbilt types and Hillsboro hipsters come during peak hours, but the restaurant also attracts folks on romantic dates. Flavorful, healthy dishes are offered, like the pasta Mediterranean, tossed with sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Steaks, pork chops, chicken and fish dishes are also offered. After meals, diners sip drinks from the cappuccino bar.
Beware of the Mean Tea Lady – My vegetarian friend and I decided to go to Tin Angel on Sunday, since this website said it was great for vegetarians. Unfortunately, after we sat down and looked at the menu, we realized that it did not have many veggie dishes at all, or the ones they did have on Sundays were breakfast style.
The waiter had already taken our tea orders, but we had not taken a sip out of them yet. I couldn't seem to get the waiter's attention, so I walked up to the hostess who, by the way, was stuffing her face with potatoes while standing up at one of the tables. She seemed put out that I interrupted her. I told her nicely that we hadn't known that Sundays were brunch only and that we had already had breakfast earlier. She gave me an evil look and then asked if we had ordered yet. I said two teas but we hadn't taken a sip out of them. Then she angrily dashed passed me and my friend, grabbed our teas off of our table, and stormed off to the kitchen. Then our waiter came up and said hold on - usually we don't charge for drinks if you don't drink them but I guess she wants to charge you so I will go get your bill. So we waited for our waiter to bring back our tea bill - which was $4.26 by the way. Anyway, we were both willing to pay since we had made the mistake of sitting down, but then when I asked the hostess if she had put our teas in to-go cups, she turned around and snapped, "I can't do that! The waiter has to do that." We were shocked at how rude she was. (Hey, if you are going to make me pay for the tea, I want to drink the tea, lady.) Then the waiter came back and explained to us that the "menu has been brunch only on Sundays for ten years" and he was shocked that we didn't know that. Well, I'm sorry kind waiter, but I didn't get the news bulletin on that when I was living two different states for the past 10 years - not even close to Nashville. Do you send out flyers to everyone in the US so they know? Shame on me for not knowing that!
Happy Holidays Mean Tea Lady!
Best Brunch – Every Sunday and yes I mean every sunday I sit down at Tin Angel and start my week off right. Mimosa and Eggs Benedict. Everything on the menu is great I know because again we go every sunday but I'm hooked on the Eggs and the potatoes are the absolute best. My children even love this place. I wouldn't be able to rave enough about it. I say go with the warm wheat toast to start, Huevos Rancheros or Eggs Benedict with potatoes!!
SLOW service, unfriendly staff – I went for lunch along with 2 coworkers last week. Our waiter was very cold and unfriendly; offering no refills on drinks throughout the lunch. We finished our lunch and waited for quite a long time until I finally ask the hostess to have our waiter return to the table. With a bothered attitude he returned to the table, slapped the bill down and walked off.
Very unfriendly, COLD experience; do not plan to return.
excellent brunch – delicious food, great lively ambiance. friendly funky wait staff, hip crowd. a cool, fun spot for brunch.
What happened?? – I used to go to Tin Angel quite regularly when we first moved to Nashville three years ago. We were impressed and thought the food was above par. We went last week for lunch and I can't quite figure out what happened. The food was low quality and the service was slow and with a forced smile. We waited over thirty minutes for our food - which might not have been a problem had we not watched everyone around us, who all had arrived much later than we did, gotten served, ate and left in timely "lunch" fashion. We had to get our things and our impatient two year old to go. And pay a rather expensive $48 for lunch that we didn't even get to enjoy on site. Being a server myself, I understand that you cannot control the speed of the kitchen but oyu can at least make your customer aware of any problems and suggest alternatives - especially if they have a child present.
More show than food – Went to Sunday brunch last week. Not really all that impressed with the food; kind of like TGI Fridays with a twist. The place was full of the showy big hat and big pearls, self-important, "wanta see and be seen" crowd loudly laughing at their own jokes along with a bunch of "daddy didn't love me so I dress this way" college kids. The Salmon "special" tasted like leftover from the weekend that didn't sell. Egg frittata was undercooked, greasy and bland. "Angel Wings" appetizer (flour tortilla, with apple, onions and cheese) was somehow half burned and half raw from the grill. Nothing all too remarkable given the price ($40 for two). Would not recommend with so many other good restaurants in town.
