Great food and service!
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).
Service was slow and the food was disappointing. It took nearly an hour to get our food. The Sea Bass was super salty.
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.
My wife & I did Valentines at 10 Below. Our first time. Duly impressed. Cozy feel. Love the bar. Had a cocktail after dinner. Great dining experience 😊👍🏻
Valentine Day Prix Fix Meal idea was great but the execution was not. The steaks were tough and one had to be sent back. The server was very accommodating . This was not, however, indicative of other meals we have enjoyed at this establishment.
We enjoyed this modern art designed restaurant. We had the baby romaine salad and the dressing was great. One of our friends had to try the draper valley crispy chicken which was surprisingly good. The bronzed king salmon was also very good. The bread pudding would have been better with a whiskey sauce. We would definitely recommend this place for dinner.
Great, imaginative cuisine! Their crispy chicken dish is Fantastic!
The only draw back is the small, underground space that can get a little crowded. Other than that a must when in Bend!
The service was outstanding! Bevan took great care of us, knowledgeable of the cocktail list and the menu and made great recommendations. The salmon salad was super good. The scallops were nicely carmelized but a bit overdone and a little pricey for 3 scallops. Overall a good experience and would absolutely recommend it.
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. :\
Fantastic breakfast, wonderful service
I realize we went for a nice dinner on Christmas Day, and probably none of the staff wanted to be there but wow, what a let down.
We are local to Bend and have enjoyed 10 Below’s bar and happy hour many times. But dinner was a big disappointment. Slow service, slow to get drinks when the bar server was not very busy. Food was ok but overpriced for what we got. Once again yes it’s Christmas Day so not totally surprised. Ran out of dessert substituted another desert. Couldn’t even get our water glasses filled when servers walked by with a water pitcher. Waitress was very non ingauged but apologized for the wait. I’m assuming hoping to preserve some kind of tip. Sorry 10% is all I could manage.
If you can’t do it right, just have the bar open and serve snacks.
The best part of the night was the valet service. Hands down.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice. We enjoyed the piano music as we arrived. The staff was all very friendly and the food was excellent. Would eat there again.
The service was poor and the food spotty. Disappointing because it is a great space.
The food was great & service was exceptional! We can't wait to go back!
The power was out that day of the special and we were not able to get an extension for just one more day. Likely not to come back.
Four of us ate our Thanksgiving dinner at 10 Below. It was wonderful, great service and enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant plus it was on the quite side. It was a great choice for us. The guys tried the Absinthe drinks - very fun and a unique experience.
This is a ‘hidden Gem’ ...We have enjoyed eating at the 10 below restaurant at least a I/2 dozen times or more over the past 10 to 12 months. Most of our eating experiences there were for breakfast or a late brunch. So we were fairly confident that our Thanksgiving dinner would prove to be just as good as anything we had experienced eating at 10 Below. the quality, service and ambiance of the Thanksgiving dinner did not disappoint ! The food prep was outstanding and beyond our expectations. Everything is fresh and not prepared far in advance...The Butternut Squash Soup was truly amazing, our entrees, sides & deserts were done perfectly (or as close to it as one can)..the wine list was very good and carried quality named vineyards, ambiance is ‘classy casual’, well done & modern, not crowded, while being totally comfortable. Our waitress VANESSA (who has served our tables in the past) was awesome! We both left here totally contented & look forward to the next opportunity! We both travel a lot, enjoy dinning out and prefer better foods, etc..
(so ‘raving’ over a Restuarant is not taken lightly)
Very nice service and food was great! Able to have a conversation without lots of loud music. Enjoyed ourselves and will visit again
We ate at 10 Below for the first time , prior to going to one of the jazz concerts offered at the Oxford. Loved the entire experience.
We have been there before and it's been great but after last night not sure we will go back. Beautiful place, lackluster service. Lots of staff standing around. Waited forever to be seated. I am Celiac made a huge deal about NO GLuten. Salad comes w breadsticks on it? Then the scallops were disgusting. Fishy, no caramelization, unevenly cooked. The risotto was not cooked (hard) and what was cooked wasn't cooked properly. Super starchy. I sent it back and they took it off the bill but what a bust for date night 😢
I chose the $10 lunch special as I've taken it before and friends advised me about how good it was. Unfortunately this taco dish was almost inedible. Cold tacos. Dry. Just hot sauce to add to it. But wait staff was good--just the right amount of attention given that this was lunch. If you want a quiet, easy to get into, restaurant, and don't mind being completely indoors, this is a great spot. Just be careful about ordering...I am not sure I'd go there again given the great lunch options we have around town.
Service was very slow which hasn't been our experience in the past. Drinks took too long to arrive too so wasn't just the kitchen. Wasn't crowded so not sure what the problem was.
Excellent food. Delicious grilled salmon over sauteed spinach, cheese and meat platter tasty. Would return when in area.
The service was terrific. We really enjoyed our experience there. Great atmosphere, too
Excellent service, great food and atmosphere. I would recommend it for any ocation.
Simply outstanding. Thanks to Janine our great server and the chef for specially preparing gluten free calamari for me.
10 Below was a great place to grab a bite and a few drinks. Their menu is comprehensive enough to provide options for all. We had a Cobb Salad, with salmon. A nice size piece of fish, properly prepared, over a huge, well put together salad. Add a meat/cheese platter to that, and a couple rounds of craft cocktails, and we had a great time out. We will return. It is convenient to everything, and a beautiful space.
We enjoyed a nice dinner for our anniversary and the server was very attentive. Food options were good for both vegetarians and meat lovers. Prices are reasonable for the faire offered.
Good food-great service. Good bar. Great vegetarian options. Valet parking with very personable staff.
Wow. Loved this place. It's so classy and the prices are amazing. The alcohol selection was wonderful and the food specials on happy hour were very reasonable. I enjoyed both the fish and beef tacos. I loved the fried olives and the old fashioned was amazing. Would go again anytime.
Pleasant, with many options. Nice respite from the smoke outside. Great drinks and wines by the glass.
We were in Bend for the solar eclipse weekend from Seattle with foodie friends and needed a reservation that met our time frame. I found 10 Below on OT and read the reviews and saw it was affordable. We were not expecting the classy yet quirky decor and the food we ordered was fabulous. It was happy hour but we did not have to be in the bar so we started with the Mediterranean small plate and the roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts-fabulous! The scallops, crispy chicken, wagyu burger, blta and Cobb salad were thoroughly enjoyed by each member of our party. The wine list was fine and they made delicious mock-tails for a couple of us. Service was friendly and not rushed, but we were well taken care of. The only negative was that our table was close to the kitchen and we heard that noise. The next time we travel to Bend we'll try 10 Below again!
Great ambience and service. They will cater to special diets and allergies with special attention and care.
Nice to see 10 Below back in top form. We've been patrons of 10 Below since it opened, and have seen it go through ups and downs. Our most recent meal was excellent. We started with the creamy burrata. My salmon with spinach was cooked perfectly. One of my dining companions had the spicy orange peel shrimp - flavors were well balanced. The other companion ordered the NY sirloin, medium rare. We also had the trio of fries. Great all around. Wine list was strong and a good value. We will add 10 Below back into our rotation for eating out.
After business hours we entertain clients here. Great food and service.
The decor is nice. The staff try but really fall short of what it should be for service. I crispy olives which were interesting, wouldn't order again. The sirloin was under cooked on one end and as ordered on the other, not even sure how that is possible, I didn't want the whole thing anyway so ate the cooked end. When I was asked if I wanted a few fingerling potatoes I said yes, surprise on bill, there is a $5.00 charge for the potatoes. The asparagus was overcooked and buried under the sirloin. Now the cheese plate desert is outstanding. Order that and skip the other. The wine was full of sediment and this from the top of a freshly opened bottle, ?. Not a favorite given the other great spots in Bend to eat.
A great pre-Theater happy hour or dinner location. Unique atmosphere.
We enjoyed our dinner at 10 Below. Met out of town relatives. I hoped they would be impressed. Our server was also the bartender and a very social person'
