    My husband and I ate at Brasserie ten ten for our wedding anniversary this year and were blown away by the quality of the food. We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone looking for a tasty special occasion meal or a good place to visit for happy hour (drinks and appetizers).

    My wife and I went to Brasserie Ten Ten with two friends who had never been there before. Our appetizers were country pate, warm olives and beef tartare. All were excellent. Notably, the pate had chunks of liver in it and the beef tartare was cut into very small cubes rather than being ground. Mains were lamb with merguez sausage, brique poulet and boullabaise. The chicken was so amazing, it was the fifth time I have ordered it. My wife loved the boullabaise. It contained mussels, shrimp and pieces of fish, all in a savory broth. The dessert was a date pudding with Kalua ice cream. Yumm!!! It was about the fifth time my wife and I have dined there and we will DEFINITELY return.

    I love Brasserie Ten Ten! I don't get to visit Boulder very often, but whenever I get to go there, I would always make time for Ten Ten because their food are so delicious! I've been to their brunch, normal dinner and happy hour and they are all wonderfully affordable and tasty! I went with my friends for happy hour yesterday and I ordered the bone marrow and mussels. Although the bone marrow was wonderful and the taste of the mussel soup was like heaven, the mussels were a bit undercooked than previous times. Regardless, I had a good time and would definitely go back without hesitation. Hopefully the mussels would be a little better next time!

    My husband and I had brunch after stopping by one evening for drinks and appetizers. We found both experiences to be very pleasant. The food is incredible, the recommendations the serves gave us were spot on, and the drinks were amazing. I can't wait for the next opportunity to experience this delightful establishment again!

    B1010 went out of their way to make my husband's birthday special. I asked about the milk-roasted cauliflower because he loved it and it was no longer on the menu. They put it back on the menu for just that night! We'll be back again and again.

    I went here on a date. Ten Ten is definitely an older, middle-aged crowd. The food was good and well presented, though Ten Ten seemed to specialize more in wine than food.

    Food was good while service seemed impersonal. There were many servers/attendants who were pouring water, bringing wine while they didn't seem being fully attentive and present. There were many attendants while they didn't seem efficient and personal. Table are fairly close to each other with little room for waiters to move so our waiter bumped into my back with forks and knives without even noticing it. The noise level was fairly high. Overall, an average experience. There are nicer and more vibrant restaurants in Boulder that are worthwhile visiting.

    We were a party of 6, enjoying a family birthday together. We made reservations early, on a Tues. night in hopes that it'd be a bit quieter. No such luck; Boulder francophiles fill this restaurant as soon as it opens. The food is generally wonderful; we had appetizer crepes (mushroom and ham and cheese), or mussels, that everyone enjoyed greatly. One of us had the sea bass, one had the chicken, one had fish & chips; all were delicious, I'm told. Two of us had the lobster roll; that was a bit disappointing--too much roll and too little lobster, which was too highly seasoned. The excellent desserts--creme brûlée and dacquoise and chocolate pot de creme--made up for them.

    I found this restaurant on Yelp & am so glad I did. Started in the bar as we were early for our reservation & enjoyed a number of their happy hour specials. Got our table & were so full we split the duck confit salad & brick chicken. The chicken was amazing! As were the mussels we had in the bar. Actually everything was great. Will definitely be back.

    Wife and I had dinner at Brasserie Ten Ten last week. So good had lunch there the next day. Both visits were exceptional--excellent food at extremely reasonable prices. For example at lunch: a wonderful cappuccino for $3.75 and well-prepared Eggs Benedict for $8.95. Compared to what we are used to in New England, this is practically giving the food away! Still easy to run the bill up because the reasonable prices allow diners to try more things--especially at Happy Hour. Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend and would return whenever we are in Boulder in the future.

    I ordered the tiger shrimp snd pasta special. Ingredients looked simple and it sounded great. Unfortunately, the sauce was so spicy that after a few bites, my mouth was on fire. I tried to eat just the shrimp but my mouth was in agony. The waiter went over the ingredients with me and together we couldn't figure out the cause of the spice. Later on after I sent back my meal, the waiter said when he dumped out my meal there were quite a few chili flakes in the bowl. He was perplexed why they were in that dish. My husband ordered the boulibasse and there was also a very spicy spread on the accompanying crackers.

    A fabulous find! We hit it big time here. The bricked chicken was moist & flavorful. The Ballentine chicken (coq au vin) was exquisite with perfectly stewed chicken mushrooms & onions in a heady sauce. But the rack of lamb, which was really 2 perfectly prepared lamb chops was the hit of the evening. The lamb was tender and done to a rosy finish. We started with the cherry gazpacho. We were curious but the tomato base had just the perfect hint of cherries without being overwhelmed. Finished with the chocolate pot de creme, a rich, smooth custard of not too sweet chocolate. We'll be back!

    Everyone told us we needed to go here for brunch. The food did not disappoint it was lovely. However, everyone else in town was told to go there too and it was extremely busy. Thanks to Open Table we had a reservation and did not have to wait but we were surround by three large parties. It was a little tight but I am sure a great problem for the restaurant to have!

    Celebrated my birthday at Ten/Ten. Food was AMAZING! Escargot was delicious and unique with a pesto sauce, oysters clean and fresh. The French onion soup was not overbearing with too many onions and just the right amount of salt. Then the spring pea ricotta gnocchi were warm and creamy on the inside and lightly caramelized on the outside. Just perfect with a light sauce and lots of fresh peas and topped with the best snapper with the skin crisped to perfection. So good! All served by our friendly waitperson, Anni. Great service to go with the great food!

    Every dining experience at Brasserie Ten-Ten, has been wonderful. I have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food and service are always excellent. It can be a bit noisy at times, but I think that can be true for most any restaurant in Boulder. Most recently I took an elderly friend to Brasserie Ten-Ten for lunch and she very much enjoyed the meal, and the ambiance.
