Live band music projected too much

Careful diners. When you make a
reservation for 10 Arts Bistro, they may rent out the whole space to a private party and not tell you (this happened to me Thurs April 3). You arrive and are seated instead in a dim and dull side-room normally used for other things. I talked to the restaurant by phone twice to confirm our reservation, and nothing was ever said about the room switch. And at the time it happened, the hostess couldn't understand why it might matter! Of course we left and had to wander around looking for a restaurant without reservations."

The service here is absolutely
outstanding. We all felt well cared for. The proteins (I had scallops, husband had black cod, and daughter had a duck pasta sauce) were excellent. What fell short were the sides that my husband and I had. My dandelion was too crunchy and bitter. The one thing that surprised me is they ran out of the wine I was drinking! It was a great Reisling, but only one glass... The deserts were very tasty and the coffee was really a nice ending."

wouldn't return - overpriced and
limited menu. servers were pleasant."

Perhaps my expectation as an
over-60 diner no longer matches today's world, but I expected a full-service restaurant with a complete menu, and the ability to hear my dining partner. Instead, we were seated in the rotunda, not the restaurant (where I had made my resservation for); less that five entrees were offered; and while the rotunda was grand, was not where I expected to dine - it was noisy. The actual dining room was closed....on a Thursday night."

Despite being a restaurant at the
Ritz it falls short of the brand and expectation for good food and elegance. The setting is stunning, and appropriate for a bistro/lounge. Menu is very limited, but despite that the food was well prepared. The server was attentive but did not know the menu, the dishes, or the prep. Simply put- "charcuterie- they slice the meats here", no details on the cheese plate, unable to recommend a wine (tried several wines from the list-selection of mediocre to bad wines). It is ok if you want a small bite (albeit limited choices) of standard fare (oysters, burger, salad, etc) and suggest cocktail rather than wine."

The restaurant is beautiful and
the food was quite good. I had the steak special with roasted trumpet mushroom and a wine reduction glaze -- delicious. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful but the bar is busy and a bit noisy -- but not too much. I was alone, son conversation was not a problem, but I am certain I would have been able to talk to a friend."
Dined on 3/8/2014
They've taken what used to be a
wonderful place and ruined it. The menu has been reduced to practically nothing; what remains isn't very interesting and isn't particularly good. The space is now little more than a wing of the lobby -- they don't seem to want to use the (slightly more private) main dining space anymore. All that;'s left of the original concept is the deafeningly noisy open space of the lobby, so that you can't really converse. I used to love this restaurant; I'll never waste time or money here again. What a shame."
Dined on 3/8/2014
The elegance that used to be in
the lobby is no more due to changing of the guards obviously.There was a time when the ambience in the lobby was of a european/old world elegance and charm.Now its just plain RED with awkward neon glowing lit pillars of square angles that completely clash with the stoic iconic Greek pillars that engulf the room with a feeling of mythological grace and presence.The abundant amount of tables disorients guests as they enter.Not every hotel should be dictated by a modern look or approach.If I'm going to pay $14 for a cocktail, which I expected to spend there,I'd like my atmosphere commensurate.As for the food offerings,serving fingerling size soft pretzels is really dumbing it down.Macncheese with ham?wontreturn."

10 Arts always has great food and
service. I enjoy dining there and will return."

Being the hotel restaurant in the
Ritz Carlton it was easy to get a reservation here when all of our other Philly favorites were booked solid. The place is huge and takes residence in the historic column lined lobby of the RitzCarlton which is a very cool space, but not at all intimate. Our waiter seemed baffled by basic menu questions. My wife ordered the steak special and he came back later to say that that prep was no longer available. He was flustered to help her figure out a replacement. My main course (an orange and lemon infused Duck Ragou over pasta) was just pasta with duck meat and red sauce. It was good but not as advertized. The salad and appetizer were the best things we ate."

Welcoming was pleasant. Beautiful
structure/venue. Service was extremely poor. Beverage glasses were always empty and took a long time to clear table after each course. Staff lingered around rather than attending to guests. Food had a great taste but was not hot when arriving at table. Also, portions were much to be desired. Over priced experience and we will not return."

This was our first dinner at 10
Arts. Setting is grand - off the edge beneath the Beaux Arts dome of the former Girard Bank. Restaurant Week was the occasion, with a $35 three-course menu. Choices included PEI mussels, and splendid braised pork."
Dined on 1/30/2014
Very attentive and responsive
staff who were determined to make the dining experience perfect. Added benefit: dining in an historic building."

I thought that the food
presentation and the waiters were excellent. The waiter that I had was very knowledgeable about the dish that I ordered and the presentation was flawless. My date and I enjoyed everything very much."
Dined on 1/29/2014
An elegant setting for a fine
Pumpkin Seed soup and Seared Atlantic Salmon, both perfect unlike the rest of our selections. The Banana Cream Pie, waiter's recommendation, was but a figment of this classic's memory: overly sugary tart, no pastry cream, dark banana compote and a foamy version of a cream topping. While the waiter and servers were good, the friendly F&B director was solicitous but not enough to evoke the truth about our dissatisfaction. What really impressed us was the reservation specialist, receptionist, concierge and coat check service role that Elizabeth played in representing 10 Arts from A to Z. Quick, anticipatory, accurate and warmly engaging service defined for the three of us the finest of a five star hotel."

The service was excellent however
the food was not good at all. I can't recommend this place to anyone. I will never go back."
Dined on 1/28/2014
For such a fancy hotel to serve
such a blah meal during restaurant week is a shame. The pork was half fat. The gnocchi sat in a lake of grease. The desserts must have been made well in advance with the ice cream frozen like a brick."
Dined on 1/23/2014
10 Arts is a lovely restaurant,
however, the menu is very limited and the prices are a little high. I was recently there with my boss for lunch. We both ordered the hamburger and although it was delicious, we did not think it was worth $18. Having been there before, I knew what to expect. Because of the ambience, I would go back for no other reason but a special occasion."
Dined on 1/13/2014
This was our second visit and the
food was not quite as good. Everything seemed just a little bit worse. The house salad was terribly wilted and the Trout entree was dry and seemed to be missing a sauce that it had the previous time. Overall we had a nice time and will go back, hoping that the chef just had an off night."
Dined on 12/31/2013
The food was prepared well and
presented in attractive manner but pprtions were very small for the price even considering the venue. Service was excellent . the noise level was surprisingly low considering we were seated next to the lobby bar area."
Dined on 12/25/2013
We picked 10 Arts for Christmas
dinner because they actually had a menu, and not a buffet. The food was OK, the lobster bisque better than OK. As we had just gotten off a plane from Europe, the fact that it was quiet was a bonus. The dinner with a friend was pleasant, and that's the best I can say about it."

Going to a Ritz Carlton for a
family Christmas Day dinner one would expect outstanding food, a great service and an overall festive spirit. Service was as though we were in an IHop restaurant for a casual lunch on a random day, frequently wrong items arrived, we had to ask repeatedly for items which should have arrived automatically eg bread , ketchup for the kids, drink refills... Food in general was ok, but many items bland. Sent back one course. Petit fours were completely in edible... When I informed to waitress about this, she just shrugged and gave me the cheque. She then took almost 20 mins to pick up the credit card! Would definitely avoid this place for any special occasion...."
Dined on 12/25/2013
The food was delicious. We all had
very different meals and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choices. The wine was great and the dessert was terrific. We had great service and the restaurant was lovely. The music from the bar was a bit distracting but not too overpowering."

We also appreciated the valet
parking and walked to the Forrest theater after dinner and got the car after the show"

Enjoyed the decor the lobby for
holiday, the food had much to be desired. The menu selection was much too limited. Short ribs were tasty by very dry. They were served with Brussel sprouts and sweet potato au gratin.Sprouts they were delicious, au gratin was under cooked. The music was loud for a casual gathering venue. Our server, Simone, did ask if it was too loud and offered to have it lowered, which she did. She was very accommodating! I found it unusual that bread came at a price of $2.00 per (small) basket. This is a beautiful venue and gathering space to meet for a drink and small snack but dinner isn't on my list again."

This is a great place to hang out
in the bar area of an active hotel lobby."
Dined on 12/13/2013
Quite frankly, I expected more
from a restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton. The menu is extremely limited, the food is OK, and for lunch, you are literally seated in the lobby bar! The waitress was slow and obviously overwhelmed, and although the mussels were good, the remainder of the food was OK at best...very disappointing considering the steep prices...."

We celebrited our 43rd anniversary
by having dinner here. Staff was attentive. Was surprised at the limited entrees and no "specials".However the food was very good. They have a nice wine list too. Would come back again."
Dined on 11/23/2013
We were a group of four and no one
was happy with their meal. My $34 entre of short rib was down right terrible (the meat was dry and stringy - gratin on the side was inedible - plain buttered brussel sprouts with no seasoning). Our service was also extremely slow. The only silver lining was the Cappucinno I had at the end of the night. We brought friends from out of town and I was a little embarassed. Maybe an off night?? I'm was shocked to get that kind of food at a Ritz Carlton in an Eric Ripert restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful. Hopefully they can get the food up to par. I could recommend this place for pre-dinner drinks (if you are having dinner elsewhere), because it is quite beautiful."
Dined on 11/9/2013
Very unique setting! To take a
bank and transform it to a beautiful place to chill and have a meal or a nice night cap, was cool. It was my first time dining there with my fiancé and we had a blast! Food was great, music was great, service was great, ambience and mood was definitely ideal!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
Returned to 10Arts for many of our
old favorites. The staff and management immediately recognized us and treated us very well. Chef came out and described many of his specials for the evening which we had to try. Chicken, oysters, Langoustines and brook trout were all really well done and delicious. Another winner at 10Arts."
Dined on 10/31/2013
As always, the food and service at
10Arts was superb. When we arrived at 6:00 pm, however, there was uncomfortably loud music from a live band playing. Thankfully, it came to a halt before dinner."
Dined on 10/12/2013
This place has stunning ambience
and would be great for a glass of wine or cocktails with friends. The food I found disappointing. Cleverly contrived menu doesn't live up to its billing and is disappointing when it arrives. It's expensive as well. Expect to pay $15 a cocktail or glass of wine. Not worth it."
Dined on 10/9/2013
The atmosphere of this restaurant
is just beautiful, the menu, very limited, and the service....just awful! Our waiter had the personality of my napkin. I write a review, good, bad, or ugly so I am not just writing this because we had a bad dinner. The menu is limited, however, what we ordered was delicious. I just think if you are going to wait on tables for a living you need to have a pulse. He missed out on a 25 - 30% tip. Would we go again, probably not worth it."
Dined on 8/23/2013
They are running a special for the
summer months which is a good deal in that you can choose from the entire menu but unfortunately the entree we had was so so at best. We both had the NY strip serloin and it was not that tender a cut of meat. There was no bread and buktter with the meal.That was extra. The appetizer was a tortellini stuffed with prawn, whi;ch was good."
