    This is one of the best meals you can have in Atlanta. It was the first South African restaurant to ever open in the United States….Only downfall is it’s a shame the owner isn’t committed to keeping the restaurant alive and thriving. Incredible staff working hard to do everything they can to keep it functioning. Absolute must go.

    We've been coming here for over 14 years. We were disappointed with the service yesterday. Hope it's a one-time deal. We were offered a dessert as a sorry for the small mistake the server made.. but refused to give us the dessert we actually wanted (lava cake) - the only dessert we ever get. The price difference was only two dollars. We were not expecting a comp dessert - the mistake was an honest mistake and did not really impact us much. the disappointment was all with how we were treated throughout the night. I hope the owners pay attention to the team. We love 10 degrees south and truly hope this doesn't happen to other clients. We'd love to see you stay open for a very long time!

    Terribly understaffed. Waiter (Zoey) was ood when finally able to help but overall gives a “on its last legs” vibe. They need to pay to get enough staff. Place is not cheap but feels little ke owners are. Need an energetic host and more staff. Bartender was great!!

    We ate here for our 10th anniversary but we were not impressed. The best items were the appetizers we got (Bobotie rolls and Chicken Livers). For our meal I had the Durban Curry but it was just too many flavors for me. My husband had the fish and it was fine but under flavored. They needed take some of the flavors from the Curry and add them to the fish. Our wait staff was also a little slow and inattentive. We told them it was our 10th anniversary and I wrote it in the details under the reservation and no one even said “Happy Anniversary.” The decor and ambience are great but I just didn’t love the food or the service.

    10 Degrees is a nice, upscale restaurant with delicious menu options. I'd frequent this place a several times before but this last visit was not as great. Ordered lambchops to be medium well but they were much more well than medium. Also would have been nice for the server to notify our little small party of 5 that we were considered a "large party" at the beginning of our meal instead of at the end when we were asking for our checks. We spent quite a bit and was all prepared to pay our individual checks but being notified of one single check at the very end kind of put us in a very annoyed position. I normally rave about this place to people but after this last experience, not quite feeling the same anymore.

    We used to really love 10 degrees, and were excited to visit again after almost 10 years. Unfortunately, the main dining room was uncomfortably hot ever after asking the manager and hostess to turn on the A/C. The bobotie entree was less than delicious, outside of the rice. My husbands peri peri chicken had no flavor, and more bones than meat. Would have loved for the music to be South African inspired to add to the experience, and the bathroom was less than tidy. What made this experience palatable was the company we had, and our amazing server from South Africa. What an amazing lovely lady.
