    The only thing we'd recommend is bread served with entrees; that's what the French are all about! Otherwise, a very good first experience at this restaurant.

    Brasserie Ten Ten has a very creative menu with a European flair. Everything I have ever ordered there was delicious. The thing I appreciate most about Brasserie Ten Ten is the wonderful staff of people who work there. Our waiter was so kind and attentive. It made all the difference in creating a very satisfying dining experience.

    I ate at one of the tables on the sidewalk. They are separated from foot traffic by a decorative metal fence topped by a series of planter boxes with red flowers. Sitting outside, my dinner was much quieter than it would have been inside.

    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.

    We were celebrating a birthday, so it was a very special event. One of the guests spilled a glass of water on the birthday girl's entree, soaking the whole thing & ruining it. Our server immediately ordered a replacement entree. We were not charged for it. That is great customer service!

    I've eaten at the Med a number of times and always wanted to try their sister place across the street. I was taken there for my birthday and it didn't disappoint, except for the noise level which was way too loud. I know brasseries are noisy sometimes but I've been to France several times and brasseries over there are just not this deafening. However the service and the food were all amazing and aside from the noise level I couldn't have asked for a better evening.

    The food at 1010 is constantly good, with interesting specials available daily on the menu. Service is quite slow, we waited almost 20 minutes before our table was greeted and brought beverages. Once our entrees were served, they were simply dropped off with no one checking in as to whether we needed additional condiments. I would say a gem of restaurant, but service needs to be worked on.

    Great food and ambience, been a big fan since 2010. However, on this occasion, we were assigned an unwelcoming server, doesn't appear to care about what we wanted to eat, all he needed was take our order and leave...didn't even care to ask if our glasses need water refill. Came back with our order, didn't ask who ordered what and just banged the plates on our table and left. If he's unhappy with his work, he shouldn't work in the service industry. I have been a big fan of Brasserie 1010, ate there countless times...this experience is an unwelcome surprise.

    Our wait person was Alie. On a busy night, where she had several tables, how refreshing to have a wait person look you in the eye, engage with you about the food AND be knowledgeable about the wine. She checked on us often, and did not even hint at rushing us out. The restaurant is way too loud, however, they made up for it with the great food, and Alie. On our next visit, we will be sure to ask for her! Thank you.

    My wife and I went to Brasserie Ten Ten to celebrate our anniversary. Arrived early and enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar. Our table was ready on time, and we enjoyed a very leisurely dinner. Our server was friendly and attentive, and went to great lengths to accommodate my dietary needs (no dairy). When she learned it was our anniversary she comped our dessert, too! The dining room was very lively (noisy, that is). Nonetheless, we were never rushed and had plenty of time to enjoy our appetizer, entrees, and dessert. The food was very good: warm olives to start, bouillabaisse for my wife, rack of lamb for me, then flourless chocolate cake to share. We would definitely return!

    The food, presentation and service is excellent. You feel like you are being taking care of at all times. The one issue I have is that it is real noisy - you can't really hear the persons at your table unless you speak very loud. It's bothersome to have to repeat yourself constantly. Some acoustics in the ceiling would help the noise issue.
