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 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 $49/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.

    The food and the wines were great, we went Tuesday on wine pairing menu the portions were medium but the wine portions were very small (less tha half a normal glass) when we asked for some extra wine they gave us a full glass and charged it accordingly, which is never happening in my country (greece) in same situations. Apart from that the atmosphere was great and the service (beyond that we were never be told for the extra charge on the wine) was very good. Probably I would go again but it was a little expensive regarding the portions.

    For $165 per couple I would have expected a better experience. Service was slow. Limited selection on menu. Menu said you made your own pasta yet there were no pasta dishes? I ordered the House Cab and was surprised that on the bill I was charged $14 for a wine that sells for $14 per bottle. Under stand the mark up but that was a little heavy. The bartender's whim was supposed was over charged on the bill. With only 4 entrees on the menu would like to have seen a little more options instead of two less popular fishes. The noise level is very high and it is difficult to have a conversation as the table next to you becomes part of your conversation.

    I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere is perfect for jovial conversation. Its not too formal, nor is it completely casual. The staff are kind, knowledgable, and fun to talk with. Their bar team is extremely talented; I have never had a bad drink and they are always excited to make you something completely new. With regard to food, I have never ordered off the menu, preferring instead to let my meal be at the chef's whim, and I have never had a dish I did not like - what's more surprising is that I have done this over multiple years and through different chef's. I take this to be indicative of the sort of values and culture surround the restaurant staff.

    Great space, friendly staff, amazing food. We sat at the chef's table and got the tasting menu - they gave us an extra course and glass of wine because they were too excited about the dish to not serve it. And the prices are unbeatable for this level of quality.

    This was the Australia/New Zealand wine dinner and the wines were delicious, as was the food. Stan was a superb host explaining the wines, a different one for each of the 4 courses: rock shrimp w/ seaweed and coconut cream sauce, pea soup with a meat pie on top, lamb w/ squash puree, and blue cheese with a molasses cake. It is a very fun experience to try so many dishes and wines in one meal.

    If you love great food and wine, and letting the chef decide what you're going to eat, this is an incredible meal at an incredible price. 4 courses plus 4 wines (glasses of wine, not just tastes) for $49. Great for a special occasion with someone near and dear to you. I'm definitely going back.

    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.

    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.
