Loved everything about this place. The decor was very nice and the servers had great customer service. We went for Valentine’s Day and for $70 you get an appetizer, entree and dessert! Would highly recommend!

Ten Degrees has been our go to place for over 10 year now. My husband and I LOVE the Calamari and Boerewors Sandwich with a few Lychee martinis to start. It is always hard to decide because everything is good! The service is always top notch. We love the upscale lounge atmosphere. We look forward to going back always.

The food here is very good. We had the lobster spring rolls, prawns, sea bass (catch of the day), and chicken curry. They also had a pretty good cocktail menu, but I believe, for the price, the drinks could be larger and/or heavier pours (first drink was mostly all ice).
The worst part was the service however. Our waitress was nice, but was not attentive to the table and we sat waiting multiple times for refills or waiting to order something. The restaurant was also not that busy, so not sure what the issue was.
Will certainly return again due to the delicious food, but hope the service is much improved the next time around.

Second time I’ve been and the second time I’ve been disappointed. The food is decent but service is severely lacking. Also, both times I have gone I was either overcharged on my CC or brought the wrong change with cash. One time is an error, but two times?

I overall enjoyed the food and atmosphere but for a restaurant of this caliber, our waitress could have been a little more knowledgeable with the menu and friendly. When asking questions about the food, no description ir detail was given just *its good* and her personality was very dry. The food however, was delicious. Me and my husband will go back again, but if the service is the same, that will definitely be our last visit here.

One of my favorite restaurants! Excellent food, service and ambiance. Some of my favorites are the sautéed mushrooms appetizer, biltong Caesar salad and chicken curry. Can’t wait to come back!

Great food and service as always! Since it’s cold right now, they need to keep the temperature warmer in the restaurant, we were freezing the entire time.

The experience started out of the blocks on a negative in that we were offered on two small tables in the entrance and exit area of the facility. Versus suggesting waiting in the bar until tables in the balance of the facility become available. Every time a server or employee would pass behind my chair they would hit my chair as would the customers going to their tables and leaving their tables.

Now, the true key to the frustration of this facility was the server. It should have been easy and yet it was not. We ordered bottled water and it took over one hour to receive it. I ordered one glass of wine and two other tables came in and ordered and received their wine and I had to remind the server of my wine order and then he had to ask me again what did I order to begin with. I reminded him of the second bottle of water we were waiting on for an hour and he asked me what kind did I order! I pointed to the empty bottle sitting on the table! He forgot to bring our entree and had only assumed we had already eaten it and the plates had been removed. We simply said ‘no!’ And this type of service continued for the balance of the evening. The owner or host or other employee never went by and monitored service levels or customer satisfaction levels.

When booking our New Years resolution they claimed live entertainment! They did have live entertainment it was on man with one guitar! What a way to bring in the new year!

We arrived at 7:25 for a 7:30 dinner reservation on New Year's Eve. At 10:05 we were still waiting for our dessert and this was a pres fix menu. The choices on the pres fix were very good as was the food. The service was okay, but I think one or two more servers might have helped the situation. We watched as those who arrived before and, some who arrived after us, were served and departed. Not sure whether it was our server who seemed to have forgotten us or what, but we were the last of the people arriving at 7:30 to be served and we left with our dessert in hand. The other issue was my husband's chair. He is 6 feet tall. but not a large man. When he sat in his chair he sank down so low, his chin was almost on the table. He also commented on how uncomfortable the seat was. Perhaps some new chairs for the new year? They have had these same chairs for many years, I recognize them. I would definitely recommend 10 degrees South as a wonderful place to dine and we will return, but certainly never again on New Year's Eve and for that matter no evening when there is a special holiday as I fear the same situation may occur.

We made this reservation last minute for NYE and no where was there mention in this app of a NYE prix fixed menu. Once we sat down and realized was informed it was $75/ person. We had our 9 year old child with us which they did accommodate for us (very kind) however due to the night, alternate options were not as easy as usual. All other restaurants had these details in the open table app and/ or on the confirmation of reservation and this one did not.

Our lead server was very accommodating, the food runner was absolutely rude, drinks service was slow and my husbands $75 lamb shank was over cooked as in he didn’t eat it . I should have noticed when he didn’t eat it all or take it home. Considering the price that we were forced to pay, the food quality and level of service did not match the caliber.

Highly annoyed with the lack of information from the app that is preferred. Leaving 2019 with a bill that was NOT expected.

This used to be one of our favorite places but the prices have gotten ridiculous for what you get - and the food just passable. We got a tiny steak for $45 that was just ok and the Kingclip - a house specialty was dry. Sadly, we will not be going back. Also, there also were only about 5 tables filled all night - so this restaurant does not appear to be long for the world anyway.

10 Degrees South is a dining gem. We had not been in a while and everyone kept saying - why aren't we coming here more often?

The food was great - we opted for the fish special and our service was impeccable. We ended our meal with a great dessert and a scoop of ice cream.

We plan to add this to the rotation now.

I will not recommend this to anyone. The manager and waiter are so unprofessional. The manager specifically disrespected and insulted my group of friends. I will definitely not be back and will advise my friends to avoid going to this restaurants.

There are better restaurants in Atlanta that provide good quality service so I will definitely not be back.
