    We love the food and atmosphere at A-10 and have been waiting for such a place in long-neglected Hyde Park. The food never fails to please, and the cocktails are creative and varied. The service, however, particularly from the bar, is slooooow. The waiters are professional and responsive (a rarity in Hyde Park), but invariably they lag behind, perhaps because they are understaffed or are forced to wait on slow or disorganized bartenders.

    Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. Service was excellent. Food was very good. We were happy to find such a nice place in the neighborhood. Thought we would have to go downtown to find this level of dining. We will definitely go back. Only negative was when we arrived for our reservation they seemed a little caught off guard and we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. We enjoyed a drink at the bar so it was fine.

    The restaurant was overall a great experience. our meal was great and the service was perfect. It is surprising that there were not that many people there, but people should not let that discourage them. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant. The pasta and appetizers were the best parts of the meal.

    After hearing all of the reviews of A10, we met with some friends there over the weekend. The food was quite good, but the service a little strange. Before asking if we wanted a drink or some wine, the server launches into the specials, which changed the tenor of the evening to a rushed order model. The wine we chose was sold out, which the server didn't know until after we selected it. At the end of the meal, there was a "rush" for ordering dessert. The desserts were good, but not as good as the main courses and starters. We may go again, but given that we live in the near western suburbs, it is a push to go and there may be more enjoyable experiences closer to home.

    I was late in trying A10, which is walking distance from my home. It was fairly busy but not too loud for a Friday lunch. We sat in the attractive bar and enjoyed salads. My mizuna and baby carrots salad was filling, tasty and healthy, with quinoa and some small black crunchy seeds I could not identify(poppy? Chia?). The carrots were mostly pretty large to qualify as baby, however. Mt companion's steak and greens salad was reportedly very good, too. Our server was attentive, and we received good advice on our wine picks from the bartender.

    We were seated promptly near the window on the bar side of the restaurant. The waitstaff had to shout to be heard. I was very disappointed the ONLY water was poured from a MYSTERIOUS green bottle. Where did it come from? Is it purified? WTH? No bottled sparkling water is sold! WTF! Seltzer water from their tap was offered.YUK! The good:Try the draft cocktails! The Daiquiri was GREAT w/a kick. All food was GREAT! ASK about ingredients... I asked about one pasta dish only to learn that it's topped with a vinegarette NOT in the menu description. I hate vinegar! The cornichon aioli served w/Double Fried Frites was GREAT!! and the herb butter was worth the price of having to buy the baguette. BTW-our server had too many tables to handle.

    Drinks were good. Pizza appetizer was very good. They love putting eggs on stuff which is great in my opinion. Got a pasta dish that said gnocchi on the menu but was actually just a slice of polenta. It was very good polenta but was in no way, shape, or form gnocchi. This wasn't explained in the menu or by the server. The scallop entree was good too. The dessert (like most of the other courses) suffered from too many ingredients. The coconut panna cotta could have done without the candied sesame seeds. The Twinkie cheese plate thing could have done without the pickled cherries. A totally solid option if you are in the neighborhood, but we won't be returning.

    I had avoided A10 until now because their first menus were not very friendly to vegetarians or pescaterians, but I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased this week. Enough starters, pizzas, pastas and salads for the non-meat-or-shellfish-eaters, and a couple of possible entrees. My sazerac was terrific, and a great accompaniment to my starter - a kohlrabi, apple, mint and pecorino salad. The roasted vegetable entree was quite tasty, and the chocolate malt soft serve dessert sinful. My companion was equally pleased with his special of the day salad and gemelli. We'll definitely go back, and thanks to the chef for broadening the menu!

    This place is a great spot, a foodie restaurant in Hyde park with a sophisticated menu and excellent service . We started with wonderful cocktails - a gin based drink with a lite rum and lime juice , delicious! Then proceeded with a wonderful corn and snap pea salad , a double pork chop that was roasted and seasoned to perfection , a steak and quite tasty asparagus on the side. We skipped dessert as we wanted to try the ice cream shop down the street. We will return to a10 and work our way thru the menu . As an aside , the car seemed quite nice , we decided to save that for another day .

    We went to A10 for my birthday this past weekend, and it was my first time there. Definitely the best food I've have in Hyde Park. It's great to see that the neighborhood finally has a nicer place to eat. The bar has interesting selections, and the menu combines unexpected flavors in ways that are effective and delicious. One of the people in my group had what he has described as one of the best steaks of his life. Something about the sauce. Definitely recommend it.

    A10 was outstanding. Food was well prepared, fresh and creative. If you're planning to go home satiated or dine at bargain basement prices, A10 might not be for you. But if you're looking for interesting meals, a great wine list, unique cocktails and great service, it's just might be the right place. My only complaint (and they can hardly be held accountable for it) is that 53rd is a busy street under construction which created a bit more noise in the outer dining area than is probably normal. But the rest of the experience more than overcame this minor inconvenience. As Arnold said, "I'll be back".

    The food was below par. I had green tomato lasagna. I was curious as to how they would blend the acidity of the green tomato with the rest. I had a big pile of indescriptible stuff, with breaded green tomatoes, cheese, lasagna pasta, crab, and the whole thick was covered with a thick bearnaise sauce. The whole thing made no sense from a culinary point of view. I had fried ricotta as apetizer that was just as uninteresting. The highlight was the double fried frites. It was my second time at A10. The first time I had scallops that left me an unpleasant aftertaste in the mouth. I will not return.

That said, the brunch menu, although limited, was unique. We absolutely loved everything we tried and can't wait to return for dinner.

    Good vibes here. In some dishes it just felt like there was something that just missed the mark. The plating was beautiful tho. The servers and bus-boys, the coolest. Also the people at the host stand, yeee!! Best thing was the duck fat pasta. It had a lot of flavor, probably because duck fat has a lot of flavor and the sauce was reduced well. The sauce on the carpaccio dish had a funny texture and just missed the mark in terms of flavor. The oysters were off the chain with that lil crunchy crouton thang in there. Presentation for those was on point. The cheesy ball things were okay. They needed a lil more pizazz. And the scallops were also okay. The crunch from the quinoa was the jam, but then the sweet potato puree needed something more.

    Sadly, the items we loved on our first visit weren't available--beet salad, pea doughnuts. New appetizers were delicious, though. It was unbelievably noisy and, weather allowing, we'll try outside table next time. Or maybe the bar side is quieter. Conversation was just impossible. So we just ate and enjoyed the food.

    I took my husband here for Father's Day. It's new in the area and we were very excited to try it. The service was excellent. The chairs were not comfortable though. The food was just ok. Not worth the price. My husband ordered chicken paillard and said it was a bit dry and needed a sauce. I ordered Campanelle and it was just ok - definitely not worth the $20 they charge for it. The double baked frites were good though. If they improve the food I will recommend it. Until then I probably won't.
