When I tasted the chickpeas, eggplant, pomegranted-walnut dip, spicy potatoes, scallops, and melt-in-your-mouth salmon, I was swished off to the Mediterranean Seashore. Wish I was there.

We ordered a little bit of almost everything and split between the 4 of us. The staff was super friendly. The food was excellent. I really liked the Brussels Spout starter. The craft cocktails excellent. We walked from Staples center, so great location.

Overall it was fine. A bit overpriced for the quality. We ordered the kebab platter and it consisted of 2 screeds (1 ground beef 1 ground lamb) and disappointingly only two small cubes of chicken and one very small cube of beef…the veggies were good - cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and the babaganoush was good. All in all it was fine but kinda pricey for the quality

Excellent service. Food was very good; fresh pita to order was warm and flaky—yummy; shared sampler plate was outstanding.

Parking is very tricky here as they don’t have their own private lot. My party had to go around this place at least 7 times to find a private parking structure that does not look shady. We ended up finding a street parking, but we still had to walk at least 15 minutes to get to this place. Also, the food was mediocre at best even though it was a pricey meal. My salmon was burnt and tasteless, and my friends’ kabobs were just as dry and tasteless as well. We all decided to pour hot sauce to actually taste something. I don’t think I will ever go back to this restaurant.

"10e provides a relaxed vibe – very comfortable dining room and bar area. I liked it so much, I went back the very next night. The staff is professional, accommodating and very knowledgable on the menu and they made superior recommendations. The Bibb lettuce chopped salad was refreshing, the lamb kabob was excellent, not to mention the outstanding hummus.... The restaurant is a 10 as in the name 10e for excellent.

Highly recommend, however they do not have Valet parking. Parking across the street at Bloc costs $42.00 which is a rip off. If you go, give yourself plenty of time to find parking and ample time to walk to restaurant.

I was travelling to Downtown LA mid-February. We were looking for a restaurant for an early dinner seating for 4 before we went to the Philharmonic. It was Valentine's Day, so it was difficult to get a reservation. I was fortunate to make a reservation at 10e.

The day before the reservation, I received a call from the restaurant, but they didn't leave a voicemail. I decided to call the restaurant to confirm. They then informed me that it was going to be a $75 Prix Fixe four-course menu, and that they weren't serving the a la carte menu at all that evening. I asked whether they had vegetarian options, because one in our party is a vegetarian. She had no idea. She then said that I would need to call back to give a credit card to hold the reservation. For some reason, she could not take the credit card at that moment, nor did OpenTable ask for a credit card hold, as they sometimes do. Frustrated, I checked their website as well as OpenTable, and there was nothing about the Prix-Fixe menu or the credit card hold. According to OpenTable, all was OK.

The day of the reservation, less than one hour before, I decided to confirm my reservation details with OpenTable again, only to find out that the restaurant cancelled our reservation. Frustrated, I called the restaurant and asked them why. Again, she had no idea. Fortunately, they would still be able to seat us at our previously confirmed time slot.

The restaurant was half empty, throughout our meal. The front staff were constantly on their 'phones, apathetic to customers and their needs. For a good restaurant, it's no wonder why they were half empty. The front was killing them.

While the restaurant and the food were nice, the front staff should be fired. Quickly. Otherwise, 10e may suffer dearly at the hands of an incompetent front.

I wanted to like this place but was disappointed by the poor service and the 20% gratuity that was added on to the bill. I took my parents who were visiting. The food was good though too expensive for what it was. I had to ask the hostess several times for a waiter to come to the table. It was disappointing and loud to boot.

10e is a gem in DTLA. If you are looking for excellent Mediterranean cuisine for a reasonable price is a great atmosphere, this is the place. The focus on Lebanese cooking gives the food a nice spin on traditional fare. Try the sujuk as a case in point.

We visited 10e during DineLA and wanted to try a restaurant we haven’t been to before. I’m so glad we went to 10e. We’ll definitely return again soon.
