    Not many restaurants have it all, but Brasserie Ten-Ten does...with the exception of being a kids spot. In addition, it is so-o consistent and offers an ever-changing menu of specials that are excellent and really creative. Eating in the bar is a great option too.

    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.

    We had a great anniversary dinner, food was fantastic. The only negative comment I have is that our waiter was very sour, had no interest in us at all and we felt like he could not wait for us to leave.

    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.

    Our service was very poor. We were ignored by our server for a considerable period of time. Other people, who arrived much later than we did, had their orders taken before ours. We had to ask to have our order taken, ask for bread, stop the waiter for drinks. For over $ 200, I won't go back or recommend the restaurant to anyone else.

    I loved this place! I felt like I was back in Manhattan at some popular dining spot known mostly to locals! The noise level was manageable; both spouse and self don't hear like we used to :) but I asked for a table against a wall and was accommodated; the food was well prepared, appropriately priced and nicely presented. The wait staff was timely, friendly, discreet when necessary and helpful. Nice wine spec of the evening as well as house selection and a good list. The menu was varied and the Happy Hour selections were super. I can't wait to come back here!

    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!

    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!
