10 Degrees South Ratings and Reviews
I have been to 10°south on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. My boyfriend flew up from Orlando and we decided to go for NY eve. Restaurant was freezing cold and we were told we just had to wait for more people to come to warm the room so I ate with my coat on the entire meal. Our entrees came and my boyfriend's 18 oz ribeye and all of his side's were cold. My dish, the curry chicken was also dry and overcooked. He sent the steak back and the chef recooked the same food we sent back, bites taken out and all which should never happen at a time dining restaraunt. Waiter was annoyed that we sent it back and avoided our table after that. May i mention the table behind us also sent their steak back for being cold. I left to go to the restroom and the bus boy cleared my plate, almost still completely full of food as I was going to get a box and take it home because we were so over the lousy service and attitude. When I told the waiter what happened he did replace my meal, but again with annoyance. $300 later, we won't be back. Very sad as owner is a nice guy. Wish I would have been able to speak with him that night.
The ambiance was beautiful and the food was pretty good. Not extraordinary but good but our server(forgot her name) was VERY unenthusiastic and took forever to get our drinks then brought some and not the others. She was kind of aloof about it too not offering apologies just said they’ll be right out. Overall her manner was lackluster and dimmed the overall mood of our occasion
We had excellent service on a Monday night with a small crowd in the restaurant. The food was fabulous, creative, authentic, and different - very tasty, lots of wonderful flavors. This is a great place for "foodies" and people who like to try different cuisines. Great wine list and cocktail list too! loved the atmosphere. We will be back!
Overall the food and restaurant was excellent. We did however feel rushed to order and had to ask our waitress to return several times because we were not ready . The restaurant was not crowded so we were surprised at her rush to get our order and bring out our food.
Cocktail part of the meal was off base. I asked for an after dinner drink menu and was given a wine list. My date wanted a tanguray gin martini and they didn’t carry it so he asked for Bombay and they didn’t carry it. After dinner I asked for a tawny port and the waitress never had heard of it and what she returned with was not port at all. It was super sweet and apricot colored. We had nice but slow service . The calamari app was great! I didn’t care for the bananas sliced on top of my lamb curry but it was ok.
Bartender (we sat in the bar area) was more suited for TGI Fridays than 10 Degrees. He single handedly ruined the business dinner with my 3 business associates with his inattentive, sloppy and generally lame service. I'd bragged about 10° to them and then took them as they were intrigued in what an African Restaurant might be like. They left with "the food was great, but service was so bad I'd never go back" and if I wasn't from Africa, I'd do the same. Get back to your roots of good service matching your good food!
Food and music were great! Service was terrible! We had to prompt the server for EVERYTHING(taking our order, refilling drinks, bringing our check, etc). He refused to split check between us and another couple and he always disappeared so we had to go to the bar and request the server.
It wasnt even crowded for a Saturday night!
The ladies greeting guests need some major training in customer service. Wouldn’t seat us at first because 4th person hadn’t arrived? Really? Table for 4 and you won’t sit 3? Then sat us at worst table in hallway basically when 90% of restaurant unoccupied. I asked to move tables which they did begrudgingly. Our server was great but if this was my first time - which it’s not - at this restaurant I would think twice about returning after this treatment.
The ambience was perfect for this anniversary dinner w/ special friends. Beautiful interiors in an understated building. Service was great as well as the food. The hostess knew it was our anniversary and had the bartender mix up a special round of shots (on the house) for all 6 of us. They even considered the "non-drinkers" of the night in our group by only adding a splash of alcohol. Another server offered to escort us outside for a group photo at the "magic hour" of lighting. Our server gave wonderful suggestions and everyone's food was great.
10 Degrees South did it again! This visit was my 5th or 6th visit in the last 18 months and this visit was for a special birthday. One word - fabulous! We started at the bar with Mia. Great service and excellent drink and food suggestions while we waited on the entire party. Our waitress, Taylor, was wonderful when we got to our table. Our grandchildren were with us and Taylor made two new friends right away. The food was amazing as always. We had the Safari Platter, two fish dishes, two appetizers, and the Vegetable Curry and shared them family style. A hit with everyone present! Taylor choose the desserts for us and WOW... What a wonderful night; we will definitely go back very soon.
