I wish Bistro 10 UN were open more often. What a gem. The people are incredible and the food very high quality.

The food was tasty and interesting. Not huge quantities, but sufficient. We had several different dishes. The salads were fresh and attractive. The main dishes had nice sides. I had mahi mahi fish which was not overcooked. Desserts were excellent. Key lime pie with tart filling and beautiful meringue topping. The crust was a bit tough, but tasty. Attractively presented.

I'l go back. Not cheap, but a good value.

Creative menu and overall well executed. Salad was over dressed and some of the sauces were a bit too salty. Enjoyed very much and will come again.

I have been going to Bistro 10UN for many years. I understand that because they are mostly students learning in the SFAI program the expectations should be moderate. Some of the food can be really good at times. Unfortunately, after we ordered we were informed that one of the main courses we ordered was no longer available, We were there on the early side so that is not acceptable. The bread was overcooked and the wait person even asked us "Is the bread overcooked?" when we said yes she said she would bring us fresh bread but never did. I will probably go back again because t is a good value and close to work, but I will no longer recommend it to others.

This a culinary school, so anyone going should relax and understand students are learning the profession.

Staff a little bit overwhelmed by the numbers in our party. Not sure if appetizer tart was suppose to be cold but would recommend serving it warmed up not room temperature. My selection for main course was the salmon. The middle was undercooked. Dessert presentation was excellent. Portions were very, very generous. Overall experience completed the day trip from out of town.

The food was delicious! The students are still learning and they got the taste right. The plate of the main course could have looked better. Dessert was amazing. We called ahead for one guest who has allergies. They didn't know about it so she felt short changed and could not eat a full 3 courses.

One has to give some leeway since the cooking and serving are done by students of the culinary institute. This being the case, one cannot complain about the food itself. The steak I had was correctly made (the polenta was very good!), the deviled eggs was good and the dessert was delicious. The problem? The host was surly and did not appreciate any kind of request even when it is their fault, i.e., coffee cup had to be replaced due to being dirty, refill for coffee and that we stayed longer to get the dessert even though we stated up front that we were having the full 3 course menu. If you take him out of the equation, then it is a very nice place to try!

The food was great, the service was good. I tried the Salmon and Ravioli, among the best i've had anywhere.
