Bank on This Success
Ten Ten has earned an Outstanding rating from me for its consistency in excellence. Their offerings, from appetizers to entrees to desserts, are consistently delicious. The bacon wrapped dates will surprise you with their flavor. The steak frites (the frites are duck fries) never disappoint and are highly recommended. The ambiance is suitable for a romantic outing as much as it is for impressing your clients or co-workers to a night out without worrying about whether it will be a success or a bust. Bank on it being a success. I have numerous times and Ten Ten has never disappointed.

Loved this place... I loved the service even before going there. They called for information on food allergies and the occasion. Not to mention that the food was awesome! The host and waiter were so nice! I am of course going back!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Okay.. The triple chocolate dessert was unbelievable. Not sharing next time!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Pleasure - as always
Ten Ten's food is always delicious, the service is excellent and the atmosphere very inviting. The only thing I'd add would be better tasting iced tea, and more inspired vegetarian entrees.

An amazing dining experience
Food and service were terrific! Knowledgeable bartender and waitstaff. Charcuterie plate appetizer was special, as was the three-layer chocolate pudding bowl. Shrimp and grits, and fried Brussel sprouts were delicious.

I went here with friends for Baltimore Restaurant Week. The waiter was awesome-gave us lots of time to chat. The food was innovative and delicious and fresh. Wish it had not been raining-would have eaten outside. The patio area looks inviting. I will definitely go back soon.

Came for lunch on a Sunday and didn't realize the menu had more brunch items. Everything was still great and look forward to coming back for dinner.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is truly a great find. This was my first visit, but, without a doubt, it will not be my last. I have been singing its praises ever since. Ten Ten should expect a huge influx of new customers.

Restaurant Week Dinner
I went to Ten Ten for the prixe fixe restaurant week dinner. As a vegetarian, I was very happy to see vegetarian options for each course. Although I found my vegetarian entree to be a bit unimaginative, it was still good and my friends were raving about their meat courses. Overall, the experience was great despite somewhat slow service. The food presentation is wonderful and both indoor and outdoor dining are great. The private courtyard has become one of my favorite spots to eat.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent addition to harbor east, cool space, interesting food but as most restaurants are these days LOUD!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Packed and very nosiy
Food delicious-didn't realize it was restaurant week when we went-might account for poor service and noise Will definitely go again.

Tried during restaurant week
Enjoyed our first try for R.W. We ate outside in a space between Ten Ten and Fleet Street Kitchen. A drawback is that there are incredibly noisy fans from kitchen and/or air conditioning. The 3 course R.W. menu was interesting. My companion enjoyed his salad, steak and duckfat fries and a cheese plate with delicious pear jam. My fried oysters in a light sauce were very good but pasta with fresh mozzarella, vegetables and basil was bland and if it had basil seemed missing. Dessert was an ice cream with chocolate caramel tart. More ice cream and less tart (way too much caramel) would have been better. Nice presentation everything was very fresh. Excellent service by pleasant wait and bus staff.

Great Service, Good Food
We went to TenTen for restaurant week and not only did they have too many great options, but the food is plated beautifully. Our server became an instant friend and even joined in on the joking around when one from our party was a few minutes late. The food was great but portions seemed.. portioned-- I guess I'm used to a restaurant where I get some leftovers! The desserts were very decadent and being that there were four in our party, we got one of each.
While the tab was a bit pricey for a bunch of broke recent college grads to frequent, it was a great atmosphere for a special occasion, one I'll be sure to remind my boyfriend about in October ;)

This place looked good from the outside; and the food menu looked great. Just decided to go here during Restaurant week. Service was OK, but the food was really good!

Delicious, Quiet, Recommend it!
I first came to Ten Ten on New Years Eve and was turned away because we had no reservations. They came highly recommended so when I saw them on the list for the summer's restaurant week I couldn't wait to go. The food was really delicious! I had the fried oysters for starters....they was really good BUT were slightly salty for some weird reason. Good tho.
I also had the shrimp and grits with pork belly for the entree....DELICIOUS!!! Very tasty and the fried greens were a pleasant surprise.
The ambience was really quiet, more romantic atmosphere.
I would highly recommend it.

A Good Restaurant Week Pick
My husband and I were looking to try something new for Restaurant Week and chose Ten Ten. Overall, we were very pleased. The food was delicious and well-presented. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the steak frites. I enjoyed the wine my server recommended with my meal. I read in other reviews that Ten Ten is too noisy but I didn't find this to be the case and I am usually highly bothered in noisy restaurants. It's an attractive, classy but fun appearing place. Our only complaint was that the service was a little slow, which was odd because the place wasn't even close to full. They have an excellent happy hour on Wednesdays and we plan to go back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Marvelous service and experience
From reservation to after dinner coffee, service was superior! Knowledgeable and influential in drinks &dining without being pushy or stuffy. I would be comfortable enjoying a burger or something more elaborate here. it does feel like a nice neighborhood gem tucked off the main drag but no rough diamond here. Excellent drinks and dessert so that any course would be enjoyed. I believe Ten Ten is suitable for both a special occasion or something more casual in moment.
The only critique I would have from my beer enthusiast husband is the beer selection was good, but the temperature his beer was served could have been a little warmer ( one in particular, not all ).
We will be back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pretty good Harbor East spot
My wife and I enjoyed a reasonably-priced, well prepared, Friday night dinner at TenTen. Organic salads, tuna and burger were all top notch. Only small quibbles: beer came with a large head of foam that reduced the actual liquid to be imbibed by 40%, young waitress was pleasant, but please do not call 60-somethings "guys" and do not ask if another beer is desired three times before the first one is even close to being consumed. Pleasant ambience and not too loud.

As always - Ten Ten was perfect.
As always - Ten Ten was perfect. The food, atmosphere and service are always outstanding. It is truly a neighborhood gem and I recommend it to all of my friends and colleagues. A very nice touch that the servers always recognize the "regulars" and make it a point to make that connection. Nicely done, Ten Ten!

Six sisters celebrating a birthday were all pleased with everything from the ambiance to the dessert!
The menu had just changed and I can't wait to return and try the oysters. The rock fish was not only beautifully presented; it
tasted even better!
The room is impecible with interesting art and comfortable seating,as well as, friendly and informed servers.

My girlfriends enjoyed ourselves @ Ten Ten. Fabulous cocktails and entrees! I'm surprised there were tables open
Food was awesome & waitstaff was great
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is fantastic
This restaurant is fantastic in terms of imaginative menu and charm of presentation of food, the use of locally sourced foods, and absolutely delicious tastes; the small plates were divine and some of us ordered multiple small plates instead of an entree--but entrees were very well received as well. Great attention to detail throughout. Staff was very good-- well informed, helpful, and unpretentious. Interior was appealing and elegant. WE went at 6:30 and everyone commented enthusiastically on all of the above. AS we sat there after 7:30 on toward 8:30-9:00, the noise level literally became intolerable for us--too bad--otherwise was wonderful.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had group of seven for dinner and everything was excellent!
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice experience
We went for Buck-a-Shuck oysters but also tried the charcuterie platter and the cheese platter. It was our first visit and we liked the place a lot. On a summer weeknight business was slow but our server disappeared for long intervals. We will try again for a more complete meal.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant had a very nice ambiance, nicely decorated. This was our first time there; and I would definitely go back again. The food was delicious. Everyone loved their main entrees; which were the rockfish and scallops. Both were delicious, great sauces and beautifully presented. The salad starters and tomatoes were very good. We topped it with an excellent peach sundae with a yummy sauce!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went to celebrate his birthday on Friday night. At first, I was a little worried the service as the host was not very welcoming, but once seated at our table our server was great. She was very attentive and knowledgeable. We placed our order and the first course was out rather quickly. We enjoyed the cornmeal oysters and the crab cake...both awesome! We were sitting, enjoying our wine and the crowd, our server brought over a complimentary plate of cheese and glass of wine as our food was taking longer than expected. This came to a shock to us because we were not there very long and did not complain. The food was excellent...I recommend the rockfish! Overall we had a very enjoyable experience and would go again!

Nicely done food and drinks
We go to TenTen after the Harbor East movie experience. They were happy to seat us thirty minutes early, which was nice. It was busy, and as we waited for our appetizers, the maître-D brought us a cheese plate because he felt the wait was too long (it really wasn't, so that was quite nice). My pork ragout was excellent and my wife thoroughly enjoy the flavors in her squash tort and little neck clams. Overall it was an excellent experience (I wasn't crazy about the movie!). Recommended

I went to 1010 with friends for Sunday brunch, and it was delightful! The services was excellent; the food was delicious; and the building itself was very interesting. I will definitely be returning. It is a keeper!!

Went on a Tuesday night, not super busy, but the wait for food was long and there appeared to only be one server for an entire back room (10-12 tables). My wife's entree was way way over-cooked and everyone else's was only moderately warm by the time it arrived. We also sat there for quite a while with empty glasses which was kind of annoying since we were there to celebrate my parent's anniversary. To their credit they did offer to make my wife something else and took it off the bill. I would go there again, but prob only for drinks as we liked the ambience.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great and Fair
The special appetizer grilled oysters were fantastic. The charcuterie plate was yum, but the fried fish was really not fried and very bland. The brussel sprouts although tasty were somewhat salty. We really liked the ambiance and Nancy our waitress.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't Miss It!
I was a little hesitant to try it, since the commercials are pretty cheesy. But you can't always judge a book by it's cover. Our server was awesome. She knew a lot about the dishes and was really honest with the taste & flavors. Who likes brussel sprouts? Everyone after they try 1010's. I can go on and on. You just gotta try it!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and location
We loved how this beautifully decorated restaurant was tucked just off the main street in Harbor East; the location is perfect if you are going out to Fells Point after or planning to catch a movie around the corner. I had the farm chicken which was perfectly cooked & delicious as well as a selection of appetizers. They also have a great choice of local beers, microbrews and Belgiums. Will definitely return!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the minute I walked in to TEN TEN, I knew I made the correct choice as to where to enjoy a great lunch entertaining out of town guests. The ambiance was perfect, the food even better! We all loved the high open ceilings, sky lights, and rich yet comfortable decor. Matt (kind and attentive manager) was more than happy to tell me a bit about the place, its origin, etc...while I waited on my fellow diners. Our server Nancy was very knowledgeable about the menu and was more than accomodating with minor 'switches' we asked to make. At meals end, the chef/kitchen offered a wonderful piece of cheesecake "on the house" for my cousin whose birthday we were celebrating. I will be back and highly recommend TEN TEN to everyone! ~Nichole
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The interior of Ten Ten was beautiful. The service by Aga was outstanding. We had the deviled eggs which come from their farm Cunningham farms and they were delicious! Wild mushroom risotto was split between us two and was very filling. Had scallops as the entree and they were perfectly cooked! My boyfriend had the braised short ribs and his eyes lit up with every bite! I definitely recommend to anyone in the Harbor East area of Baltimore!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our first visit to Ten Ten and we were very pleased. Food was delicious and plentiful. Lots of choices on wine list as well. I would definitely recommend.

tucked away in the corner
Ten ten was a delightful surprise. Deviled Eggs, Sweetbreads with perfect grits, Short Rib was terrific. We were entertained by Steven the bartender, he makes his own infused simple syrups. They also have half price wines on Mondays. Definitely a pleasure and most of the food is grown on their own farm Excellent home baked focaccia!

awesome night out
me and my boyfriend need a night out and Ten Ten delivered. wonderful service, great food but make sure you make a reservation. The place was packed.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Ten ten was recommended by our daughter for her 21st. Birthday . Love the atmosphere and the location is in great area of Fells Point ,& of course it has much needed valet parking . Very small bar area- but they do have one! Very creative specialty drinks which we enjoyed. Extensive wine list. We loved the steak frites . My husband and sons more meat and potatoes guys . Some offerings a little too foodie for them . The best calamari ever! Definitely recommend.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found tenten to be a Wonderful dining experience. The food was delish! We started with perfectly prepared calamari. I had a delicious rockfish dish and my friend had a yummy burger with an egg on top. Then to top it off we had a sundae with brownie bits and caramel popcorn. I would definitely go back. The maitre de and waiter couldn't have been nicer!

A rare great find
We literally stumbled into this great restaurant. We were new visitors to Baltimore on a cold Monday when we found this spot and were we ever so happy to find it. Ten Ten is a beautiful, trendy relaxing spot with a deep menu full of wonderful tastes and broad selections. It took us awhile to make our selections and we were happy to have our waiter help us. The braised short ribs over grits is amazing and the quiches is light and great. The gnocchi entree was layered with flavor and the steak was perfectly done. However, the best part of our meal was desert. The citron tart is so very good we all fought to eat it while the chocolate chase with dehydrated chocolate was outrageous.
We cannot wait to be back in Baltimore to go ba

Farm to table goodness
Another great meal at TenTen featuring a memorable earthy and fresh salad with beets, horseradish and pea shoots drizzled with a carrot puree and punctuated by a decadently re-imagined Reese's peanut butter cup for dessert. Sadly the halibut was sold out, but the steak frites with duck fat compensated nicely. Perfect atmosphere for a girls gathering over many glasses of well-recommended wine and a noise level that didn't make us (or our neighbors) uncomfortable when our laughter got a little louder as the evening progressed.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had reserved a table for ten and forgot to add myself and my husband to the number. When I called two hours before our reservation, the hostess was so kind and assured me she would make it work and we would have plenty of room. She could not have been kinder. As I mentioned we were a big group, but the service was perfect. The food delicious. My husband is a vegetable grower and the seasonal menu is to be celebrated. All of us live in Baltimore and definitely said this a place to come back for! Thank you.

Small quiet pleasant
We were visiting the Inner Harbor area and found this restaurant at the end of a small alley. Brick and metal interior decor is interesting, bright, a bit energizing. Food showed creativity without pretension. Outdoor tables noted but it was raining for our visit.

I'll be back
In town for a conference, this was my favorite of four fabulous dinners. The vibe is a little eclectic as is the menu. The food was top notch - from appetizers, entrees to desserts. Favorites were the charcuterie plate, shrimp & grits, scallops and short ribs. The chocolate pudding was incredible, Our server was terrific - making great recommendations on food and wine and handling our large party effortlessly. Ten ten made me wish I lived in Baltimore so that I could eat there every week!
