    I am recently back to the States and I was missing french food after 20+ years living in France. First Bite Boulder is great for trying new restaurants and looking over their menus and I am glad I tried Brasserie Ten Ten. Everything was delicious and I saw other things on the menu that made my mouth water. I went home content and looked at their web site for their lunch menu, and found other dishes I have been missing in the US... so I will be eating there again soon.

    Whenever my family wants a place to celebrate an event, they always chose Brasserie Ten Ten, as we did the other night for my daughter's boyfriend's birthday. The food was delicious and the service was great. Our server, Annie, was so helpful and even though it was busy for a Sunday night, she never missed a beat. It's always a treat to come here. We've never had anything we didn't like - always fresh and innovative and the presention is beautiful. Can't go wrong with this place for a special occasion.

    I had heard that Brasserie Ten Ten was under new management and I can see the changes implemented to cut costs already. My husband's Steak Tartare was made with poor quality beef. It was served with bar food - potato chips! When I asked for a gluten free salad dressing (balsamic vinaigrette) my server brought oil and vinegar - another sign of a lazy chef - cheap too. My family used to frequent Brasserie Ten Ten once a month. We will have to find a new replacement. Really disappointed!

    1010 is solid in all ways, except service, and spectacular in none. It serves the standbys of a French bistro menu--onion soup, salad nicoise, brie, crepes, etc.--and manages to execute them serviceably. You won't be disappointed in the food or wine. But the servers think too much of themselves for this to really be a brasserie, i.e., an informal place serving hearty food, not a "destination" where hostesses dress like they're going on a first date. While we waiting in the overcrowded bar, one of the hostesses v. rudely suggested that I was crowding a table--I wasn't nor was there anywhere else for me to stand. And for all the attention I could get the bartender to pay to me, I felt like I was in France, waving from across the Atlantic.

    The food, atmosphere, and service was very good. The only thing that really could have made it better was if the front of house was a little quieter. Many groups were having fun and talking loudly and there just isn't enough sound dampening to take it down a level.

    I just love coming to Brasserie Ten Ten. Our recent Open Table reservation at 10 10 for dinner was waiting for us when we walked in and we got seated right away. The service is always very friendly and good. It does tend to get a bit noisy as it's not a large restaurant and when it's full, it's lively. So, I wouldn't necessarily choose this restaurant for romance. But when you consider brunch....the prices are about the same as Le Peep but it's much more classy with white linen table cloths and amazing eggs Benedict.

    entertained business clients over lunch. our server mentioned he was being "shadowed" as he was in training. he answered a couple questions then said he would be back to take our order. he stood ten feet away chatting with his "trainer" while we waited over 5 minutes for him to return. I ordered the Steak Frites and asked for the sauce on the side, meat cooked medium-well. Received said dish with steak covered in sauce, cooked medium rare. neither server made any effort to refill our water, nor did they ask if we wanted dessert. could not be any less impressed with Brasserie Ten Ten... a few years ago, this was a great place. not so much anymore... too bad.

    The noise is deafening on a Sat night for dinner. The food is worth it-- just don't plan to talk. they need an audio consultant as I conversation is impossible. The chef is brilliant. Our waiter was smug and condescending; totally inattentive. I wanted to ask him if his day job was a brain surgeon.

    Second time we are sitting at the bar and second time same person a blond guy with a blind beard is there as well as a female helper The bar is great if those serving are your friends, it not you are a nuisance. People at both ends of the bar were known to the bartenders they got service... We had to ask for the menu, drinks, ketchup, more drinks, desert menus, and coffee The shift changed Boone thanked us for coming no introduced us to the new bartenders... Laughing with friends and setting up was more important than us... Not coming back after being customers for 8 years The food was delishes!

    Every few years we visit friends in Boulder, and we always enjoy going back to Brasserie Ten Ten for a taste of their lovely French cuisine. We had reservations on a Saturday night in October this time. It was busy and a little loud but we totally enjoyed our leisurely, delicious dinner. Two of us require gluten-free dishes and found selections we enjoyed on the menu. My friend thought it was nice that the restaurant has tables for fine dining but also an area with TVs and bar stools if you just want a drink or a snack and a view of a sporting event. I hope we can visit again in the not-too-distant future.

    This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Boulder. But the last two meals have been very disappointing in both straight-up flavor and quality of the dishes and then in a "price-to-pleasure" ratio. The hanger steak was tough and poorly seasoned, the green beans batter was oily, the bernaise seemed to have been made a significant number of hours ahead of time. Wines very pricey for what they were. Sadly, most evident in the Burgundies. overall, we left having paid a hefty check (over $200 for 3 people) for a middling dinner, although the service remains exceptional. in this range in town, I'd have to give the nod to Mateo. A vigorous nod.

    Although it is kid friendly, some folks would like to, from time to time, have a nice meal without your brats with no table manners disrupting an otherwise nice meal. You likely enjoyed those types of meals, too, before procreating, let some of the rest of us have the magic of time without misbehaving children. If you can't teach them how to behave at a restaurant, please take them to Chucky Cheese, or better yet, leave them at home. Or even better yet, teach them how to act appropriately in a dining atmosphere, and then bring them with you.
