I was surprised how small the restaurant seemed. We were fortunate to have a table on the edge-- think it was probably quieter as the whole place was quite noisy. Server was great, food was great. would definitely return.

Food was delicious and well priced.The restaurant was quite busy and our server warned us that the meal would take 30 minutes to come. It would have been nice to have been served bread during that time so we could enjoy it with our wine. Service was good even though the restaurant was busy.

We had tickets to a live performance at the Tower Theater, server understood and kept us on schedule plus a portion of our meal went to the Tower Theater Foundation. Great food, cocktails, wines and service. Very interesting location in the basement of a hotel with contemporary interior design elements. Definitely recommend!

We have been dinning here on fairly regular basis over the last 2 years...it is really a nice 'hideaway' for lunch or dinner. Yes, it is on the lower level of a great hotel, but its decor and possible live entertainment (jazz), combined with an excellent wait staff, more than compensates for the lack of sunlight at your table. The down side is that the restaurant, which is 'managed' by the hotel corporate, has apparently become the 'step child' to the hotel. and the recent change of the chief for 10 below is just not measuring up to his predecessor. after 6+ months or so to get the act together has not produced the quality and taste that came before him. Last years Thanksgiving dinner was spectacular, this years was a disappointment. The root 'bisque' soup was more like a puree with the consistency of dry wall paste. The Turkey was dry, tasteless and minimal at best, the gravy had a horrible taste to make it even worse. the best part was the roll & butter followed by the mashed potatoes. Sorry, it pains me to be so critical, if the hotel wishes to remain as a 'five star' due to the restaurant being on premises, they need to step up and do the right thing in putting money into the galley staff, starting at the top. Otherwise the public will eventually NOT come to the restaurant.

We spent Thanksgiving at 10 Below because we were traveling on a road trip. Thank you to all the staff, but especially Stacey in the bar. We enjoyed the BEST traditional Thanksgiving main as part of a 4- course meal, and enjoyed after-dinner cocktails in the bar after. Will DEFINITELY stay at The Oxford hotel next trip. Five stars on anyone’s scale.

Food and service just average. Had tempura vegetable appetizer(didn’t have enough batter and looked unappealing) and the mushroom philo appetizer(good but could use a bit more sauce). Main dish was stuffed shrimp. Batter was a bit heavy and not sure crab was fresh). Sauce went well with rice. Overall meal was just average. Service was ok but had to ask twice before bread came late into meal.

We dined there a few weeks a go and it was very good. This time we had to open our brought in wine. Took 30 minutes for our order to be taken. Took at least 45 minutes for it to arrive. When it did one order was wrong but we took it anyway. The salmon was over cooked and one of the 2 orders of salmon was the tail cut. Which is the worst thing they could serve.

Although the corkage fee and the wrong antrea were refunded it is not a place I would return.

I am a long time fan of 10 Below, but my last 2 visits were very disappointing. It seems that the chef has changed, and whoever is minding the kitchen now is just not up to the previous quality. In addition, the service was very slow the last time we visited. Meals were served to a table of 4 at different times due to 1 steak being overcooked (which was caught before being served).
I ordered their chicken salad the first visit. It was deficient in ingredients and flavor. The chicken breast seemed to have no seasoning at all (not even salt or pepper) and the salad itself was largely lettuce with a very few nuts and cheese curds. Totally bland.
On my next visit, I ordered the petite filet with scampi. The filet was indeed petit, but was properly cooked (rare). Unfortunately, it also had no seasoning and little flavor. The scampi was wonderful, however. Beautifully seasoned and perfectly cooked shrimp.
Desserts, which previously were a highlight, were disappointing. The berry buckle would be better described as a streusel-topped muffin surrounded by fresh berries. It was quite tasty, but not exactly a buckle. The bread pudding, one of my all time favorite desserts, was a disappointing block of soggy bread and chocolate chips. No crispy points or pillowy texture as before.
All in all, the new 10 Below is definitely not improved. Until they get the kitchen straightened out, perhaps with a more qualified chef, I will not return.

This was my first time to 10 Below in a while.
I made reservations (they weren’t needed) and we were able to sit anywhere we wanted.
This took the “special” out of 10 Below.
It used to be one of my favorite fine dining
Go to’s.
It’s now, nothing special in food or atmosphere and not worth going to.

What a well hidden gem on the lower level of the Oxford Hotel. Elegant and classy. What a wonderful retreat from blazing hot summer days. I am sure it would be a cozy retreat in winter. The very tasty salmon spread appetizer was served in a large ramekin. The pot sticker appetizers were likewise a fun dish to share with a nice sauce accompaniment. The absolute best was the tempura vegetables. The breading was done superbly lightly; hard to do and well done here. The short rib rigatoni was a nice variation on a classic dish. The petite filet with shrimp was a perfect size with generous amount of shrimp. The crab stuffed shrimp was likewise excellent. Pick your spiciness for the creole shrimp - hot or not, it is good.

If you like dining in a windowless dungeon while in downtown Bend (home of the gorgeous above-ground Cascade mountains), then this is your place. It is aptly named 10 Below. Food was mediocre. Service was bad - our salads took 20 minutes to arrive and we were the only diners; our server decided to tell us her life story, perhaps she was stalling for the kitchen. I do not recommend this restaurant.

This is one classy place to eat. Jeanine, our server was prompt, helpful with menu and wine recommendations. Each of 4 of us was pleased with the food.
Love the idea of a small salad to start. Wine list fit well with the menu and emphasized great Northwest wines. Beers were local. We admired the sculpted bathroom sink! Given the high end environment, the food prices were unusually reasonable.
Highly recommended, plan to return on future visits to Bend

10 Below is located in the cellar of the Oxford Hotel. To say that the decor is unique would be an understatement. As soon as you exit the elevator, you will feel the subtle energy of this fine establishment.

The menu is interesting and prices are somewhat lower than other fine dining places in Bend. Perhaps that is their way of enticing you down below, instead of sitting with a river view. For example, the filet mignon is at least $10 less expensive than most other restaurants. We both started with an excellent caesar salad. I had the pistachio crusted salmon and my husband had the chicken dish, both cooked to perfection. Drinks were just right and the wine list is varied.

If we return to Bend, this will be our first pick for dinner.
