  • Best Crab Soup EVER!!!!!!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/27/2012
    Delmonico steak covered the whole plate, was done just right but could have been a little more tender. The Herb encrusted Cod was a lovely piece of fish but was short on herb or crustiness. The green salad was perfect, fresh, crisp and perfectly dressed. The hit of the evening was the Crab Soup, spiced but not over-spiced, a perfect blend of tomato and still slightly crisp veggies, as good a traditional home-made Baltimore style Summer Crab Soup that I have ever had outside my mom's kitchen. Desert was O.K. Noise level went up as the crowd arrived and so did the background music, a bit to loud for easy conversation. $12.50 for a Scotch on the rocks!!!!! Why so much? It's the same all over.

    This was our first visit, and we visited during Restaurant Week and sampled that menu, which was limited. The food was very good overall; but the gnocchi were outstanding. We are anxious to visit again and sample the main menu. Our waiter was the perfect blend of personable and professional. He was well-trained and attentive, and is in the right business. The restaurant itself is decorated beautifully and a wonderful space to dine in.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP

    I tried a signature cocktail which was great, and our waiter was very friendly. However, I made a reservation and when I got there my party and I had to wait a considerable amount of time before being seated, which frankly defeats the purpose of a reservation. While my waiter was very polite and helpful in picking menu items, he was not around too much. My appetizer and dessert were amazing, but my entree was just so-so. I did find the portions to be appropriate, though, and overall, it's a very nice atmosphere.

    We visited Ten Ten for Restaurant Week (Winter 2012) and were very pleased with the food and service. The waiter was friendly, the food was delivered at the right times, and the food was delicious. First course: the Flat Bread was tasty and a little sweet, my least favorite dish, but still very tasty; the Ricotta Gnocchi was cooked perfectly and the standout in this course. Second course: the Blackened Delmonico Steak was one of the most tender cuts I've ever eaten and perfectly cooked and seasoned; the Pumpkin Risotto was also very tasty. Dessert: I cleaned my plate of Apple Cider Panna Cotta and the three distinct textures of the Chocolate Hazelnut Torte was a great fix for our chocolate cravings

    Went there for Restaurant week and the food choices for restaurant week were absolutely delish, including desert. The seating arrangement wasn't to die for, but I didn't feel like that I was in my neighbors conversation all night long. If you're into trying new places, Ten Ten is definitely worth a visit. Wish that I could give you pricing worth, but the prices were already set for restaurant week.

    Overall an interesting meal. The specialty cocktails are very creative, but they are very idiosyncratic (mine was very smoky - I liked it, my husband did not). The apps were great, the desserts rocked but the main course was lacking. My dish was so salty I had to send it back - they handled it well and acknowledged they'd tasted it an it wasn't right, but still... Yet I'd go again for the creative food. Well worth a visit overall.

    It may have been an off-night on the first Sunday evening of Restaurant Week and after a successful Saturday when no reservations were available. All in all, the Restaurant Week special offer - other than the desert, a wonderful chocolate hazelnut torte - was merely ordinary and by no means worth the price, a tough Delmonico steak and soupy mashed potatoes along with an over-salted Caesar salad. Not a great experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/21/2012
    Went for restaurant week and chose from the restaurant week menu. What a disappointment. I love the atmosphere and the service was excellent but the food left a lot to be desired. Why can't restaurants put their best foot (food) forward when selecting restaurant week menu items? It's a mystery to me. The rosemary chicken with fusilli pasta suffered from a Lean Cuisine consistency.(I think a Lean Cusine meal would have been better), The duck confit flatbread just did not taste right. IT was an odd combination of sweet consistency and awuful tasting duck. The "delmonico steak" was 1/2 fat. The deserts very unmemorable. Not a meal that I would go want to try this restaurant again but I will.

    Being one block over from Little Italy has its' advantages. You can always capture those who want an alternative to Italian. We hit here for Restaurant Week to sample this new place. It was nice, not great, but nice. It was a Saturday night and it was bustling. Maybe it was the RW menu selection being underwhelming but I want to come back to try some other menu items that may give a better impression of what the kitchen can do.

    The food and service were very good but the noise level was unbearable;we could not hear each other at our table for four without shouting. It was very unpleasant and largely caused by a large group - 10 to 12 very loud people- in that small diningroom with a metal roof, brick walls and a wood floor. I suggest the restaurant limit the size of groups in that room and provide a private room for groups over 6-8 people. And investiagte if there is a way to soften the sound. All the tables around us were complaining to each other and the waiters about the noise level. This was Wednesday Jan 18th.

    I found Ten Ten by it's good reviews, and after dining there, I see why. My girlfriend and I were greeted by a friendly, personable hostess. We started our night off with the Henry Louis Smash and the Pink Lady cocktails, which were phenomenal. Our server, Johnny, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and cordial. For appetizers, we had the charcuterie plate and the pork belly. My only gripe for the appetizers, more croustini's for the charcuterie plate. For our entrees, we had the bacon wrapped filet and steak frites, both out of this world. Notable wine list with a wide selection, reasonably priced too. For dessert, we had the red banana bread pudding. That brown butter ice cream was so good... All in all, great place. We'll be back!

    The overall experience at 1010 was very nice. The ambiance is interesting with exposed pipes, brick walls, nice art work. However, the noise level was high and the large TVs at the bar created even more noise for dinners in the back of the restaurant. Our waitress was very sweet but not very attentive; she never returned to offer more wine and was slow to suggest dessert. Despite this, the food was very good and interesting and I would return.

Why he did not just pour some more in his glass?

    TenTen is a new restaurant that came with high expectations. Finding TenTen is difficult on a busy stretch of Fleet St. There is no sign, just a banner. Upon our arrival, we were quickly seated and greeted by our server. We were impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm. Unfortunately, after that he disappeared. Service was uneven and they brought the wrong appetizers to our table. Our dinners were mixed. The food was overly salted so the extra water at the end of the meal was appreciated. With some fine tuning, TenTen has some promise.

    What a find! The food was incredible, and if a high noise level makes you feel energetic you'll love this place. We made a reservation through Open Table, but we were seated at a large high-top in the bar area, which wasn't really ideal (too large and too noisy for two). The two-tops were in the back; parties who were there before us were given those first, and we were told we'd have to wait an hour for a better table (one was open within 20 minutes). Next time I probably won't make a reservation since it didn't improve our dining experience. Still, the food and service completely made up for a less than ideal table.

We liked her, BUT our "special" did not arrive as described, our bar service was too slow, the whole drink/food service took 2.5 hours for what was supposed to be an 1.5hour dinner. Several members in our party of 6 commented that they were dissapointed by some aspect of their dinner.

    I really like this place! This is the second time that I have been to Ten Ten and this time for New Years Eve. I usually find Price Fixe menus to be dull (especially on NYE), but this was a really great meal. All six of our party loved their food and the only miss was a cookies and ice cream dessert item that I personally would not have ordered as it looked too sweet. We really enjoyed this again and will be back. It is one of my top new restaurants.

    We visited on New Year's Eve so this is not an overall review; we'll need a return visit to provide an accurate assessment of the food. The service was good, the wine list small but represented a wide range of prices and variety, and, for a fixed menu nicely provided a vegetarian option entree and a couple of appetizers. Nothing was outstanding, but nothing was mediocre. The carnivores said the pork chop was fabulous. The price, for New Year's Eve was very good (65$ for 4 courses).The outside seating looks as if it will provide a nice respite from the noise of the street during the warmer months. We'll definitely be back.

    Food was good. Not terribly original menu but there was some fun stuff on the menu. I had the special fillet, it was great. Wife (vegetarian) had the mushroom risotto and found it to be OK. Gnocchi appetizer was adequate but nothing special. Portion sizes are good. Service was attentive and the server had good knowledge of the menu. Mixed drinks were weak but the wine list is good with several affordable choices by the bottle. I wasn't as impressed as others by Ten Ten but it was good enough to give them another chance, we will be back.
