We had a reservation, and even though the restaurant was not busy yet, we were first offered a table right by the kitchen. My filet mignon was over cooked, but my husband’s pasta was tasty. We won’t be going back because we were just not that impressed with either the service or the food

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

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.

My family and I were having a late breakfast and 10 Below’s menu looked delicious, so we tried it and we weren’t disappointed. We were the only customers in the restaurant for most of our meal, so our dining experience turned into a special occasion. The food was amazing. The hollandaise sauce was spectacular!

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.

My husband and I had a great experience at 10 Below. Everything we ordered was delicious and our waitress Jeanine was excellent. We only wished we could have ordered more things on the menu, which I guess means we will have to go back.

We started with the madras curry eggplant leek fritters. Such interesting flavors, and we loved it. We followed by sharing the salt roasted beet salad. Another amazing dish.

I ordered the special, which was halibut served on fingerling potatoes and carrots with an amazing sauce. And it was only $24! I usually pass up halibut because it's too expensive (another restaurant recently wanted $40 for what sounded like a similar dish), so I was very happy with this. My husband ordered the dry-aged New York sirloin, and it was cooked exactly as he ordered and it was very tender.

We want to go back for the blta, the angel hair pasta, the wagyu burger, the scallops... Lots of good dining in our future!

I have already written a review of 10 Below since it is a place to which I frequently return. This time I do have something to add because we ordered dessert, which is a rarity. Our group of 4 seemed to be mirroring each other in our choices. Both of the men ordered the turkey panini for their meal and both women ordered the burger. Everyone was happy with their choice, although I must admit that I am actually addicted to the Pacific Cobb Salad with salmon and will likely go back to that dish next time.
Each couple ordered the bread pudding for dessert. If you like bread pudding you know that it can range from overly soggy and unpleasant to overly dry. This bread pudding was actually perfect. The insides were moist but not soggy and the top had crisp peaks and a light crust. The flavor was fabulous. There are not many places in this town where bread pudding is offered, but it's good to know there is one place, 10 Below, that does a good job.

We have dined at 10 Below on several occasions. This time, we took out-of-town guests there for happy hour/dinner. The happy hour menu has shrunk considerably and there were only a few discounted options. The adult beverages were still good (it's one of the few places in Bend with decent happy hour wines). Our friends ordered the "golden salmon" and the pacific cobb salad with golden salmon, while I ordered the Draper Valley crispy chicken with Dungeness crab. The salmon were both more blackened and more cooked than on previous occasions. Since I wasn't eating them, I can't say if they tasted as good, but our friends both loved theirs. The chicken isn't something I would order again, since the fried chicken was a bit over-done, and it was swimming in Hollandaise sauce. The taste of all the other parts (spinach, asparagus, rice) was great, but I could hardly taste anything other than sauce on the chicken and crab. It was impossible to scrape much of it off since it mixed in with the chicken and the crab and spilled over into the other meal parts. But that's just 1 dish I normally wouldn't order anyway.
The only other issue on this occasion which we hadn't had previously was noise. There was a group of women in the bar area that were very loud. Since it was probably an occasion for them, I don't expect it will become a normal issue at 10 Below.
Overall, I still greatly enjoy this place. It's one of the few places in Bend that is usually quiet enough to have a conversation, and the food is consistently quite good. I also think the prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of food (our meals ranged from $14 - $18).

Value for food offerings is good--service was about as bad as it gets in Bend-very unusual for the number of times we have dined/drank at 10 below. Wedding anniversary, and not more than three tables when we were seated. Waited long enough that I got up to ask the bar tender if we could order a drink--then extended waits throughout dinner and check presentation. Had we had more options (not realistic on a holiday weekend), we would have walked and found another place to celebrate. Usually don't post reviews like this, but they were definitely off their game that night.

Nye menu was uninspired and poorly executed. Nice wine list; duckhorn by the glass was pleasantly surprising. Reservations were 45 minutes late to seat, valet nowhere to be found, beautiful fillet was over cooked and wrapped with overly smoky bacon (a nostalgic nod to 1991 perhaps?), and the "intermezzo sorbet" never made an appearance at all. Missed our ball drop party due to the incredibly slow service and seating. Disappointing. :\
