A word from Ten Tables Jamaica Plain
At Ten Tables JP, our modest size and open kitchen create an opportunity for you to enjoyably be part of the experience. Our newly expanded space, which created a stylish but laid-back bar, is warmly appointed with reclaimed wood and exposed brick, giving us a decidedly European feel. Whether you just stop in for a drink and light bite at a high-top in the bar, or stay for a full meal at one of our linen-draped dining room tables, you will come to enjoy a sophisticated and stylish space that all at once feels as familiar and comfortable as home.
**
Every Tuesday our Wine Director, Stan Hilbert & Chef Eric Cooper pair four courses of food with four wines for $45/person. Each week we feature a different region. We can accommodate any dietary or allergy needs. We do not offer our regular menu on Tuesdays.

Every Wednesday we feature our "3 for $38" menu. Pick an appetizer, entree and a dessert for $38/person. We don't offer tasting menus on Wednesdays.

    We had the chef tasting with wine pairing and we were not disappointed. Every dish was unique made with fresh ingredients. Service was fantastic. Every course was just the right portion and the wine that went with it was excellent. It's too bad that I don't live in and around Boston area....coming here often could become a habit!

    Food was amazing and it was cool to be able to see the chef in the kitchen. The bar side offered a great deal each night of the week if you're watching the budget. There really are ten tables but in a really small space so it felt a little tight. The service, though, was excellent. And, again, everything we ordered tasted wonderful.

    Service was amazing, everyone was friendly. Food was relatively simple and minimally seasoned, with more of an emphasis on presentation. Use of local ingredients was much appreciated. It looked as though there was much more fun to be had on the bar-side. Truth be told, after dropping a pretty penny on three courses, I was still hungry. Good overall experience, though.

    Ten Tables has always been one of my favorite restaurants but I have a real problem with the noise levels. It is hard to talk with your partner or other table companions. Reduces the pleasure of the experience.

    This is the type of place I love. I think my right shoulder was in the kitchen, and it was a bit tight...but what can you expect from a place with a name like Ten Tables?....Ten Tables and folks who are creating your dinner for you. I had a wild mushroom dish, my wife and daughter a fish in broth. They were both sooo good. This is a must for great food and simple fanfare, just the way I like it.

    Went with two friends to tasting menu on Wednesday. Delicious cocktail then scrumptious meal. Salads were very nice, soup with squash was delicate and flavorful. Blue fish crisp and extremely tasty. Fish with mussels milder but still ok. Mushroom something or other also extremely good. Chocolate cake with burnt caramel ice cream was exquisite p! Great service, friendly staff and funky atmosphere completed a lovely meal. About $165.00 for three.

    The first place I think of for a special occasion. The food is always excellent and over the top without being pretentious. The staff is always attentive and courteous - they make you feel like you are the only one dining. It's no secret that they do amazing wine tasting dinners also. Keep up the great work - Eric, Stanislas, Ashley, Marlon and waitstaff.

    This review is for the August 12 wine dinner featuring Spanish wines. Three of the four courses were excellent, as were three of the four wines. As always, the wine pairings were inspired and the descriptions were jargon-free and very accurate. The service was attentive and friendly, as ever. We'll be back to TT again and again. The quality is fairly consistent, and it is always an enjoyable experience at a reasonable price.

    I've eaten at ten tables for several years and have always had a great meal. From casual burgers at the bar to their weekly wine dinners to New Years Eve - ten tables always gets it right. Great wines and interesting cocktails add to the experience. On the August menu try the Pollock with fennel and mussels. Staff is great too.

    Such interesting food, and so delicious! I didn't mind that everything was the chef's choice until dessert. Don't care to spend my calories on tapioca pudding or, apparently, caramelized cornbread, which has the consistency of stale croutons. But the blueberries were divine, and the walnuts roasted to perfection. Everything else about the meal was full of creative, scrumptious flavor!

    Another great wine dinner at Ten Tables. I was not familiar with these wines but knew a little about the geography of the area. We were really impressed by both the food and the new wines we tasted. Cabbage stuffed with potato paired with Jongieux Savoie. Wild boar terrine with an incredible sour cherry mustard paired with Mondeuse Savoie. Trout stuffed with house made sausage paired with Poulsard, Jura. Cheese fondue with breads and blueberries paired with Cremant du Jura. We always enjoy how the wine changes character before and after a taste of the food. A great dinning and learning experience.

    My husband and I were looking forward to a fantastic dining experience, based on the fact that we love the Cambridge location and have been there several times. Unfortunately we were seated at 8:40 for our 8:15 reservation and then waited another twenty minutes after we ordered our first course for it to arrive. This set the mood for the rest of the meal. Though the ingredients were fresh and local, which we appreciate, none of the courses were prepared in such a way to wow us. The food was oooookay, but it was nothing spectacular, which was a surprise given our experience at the Cambridge location, as those are some of the best meals we've had in the city. We will not be returning to the JP location.
