This is my fav Boulder spot, but the meal this time was barely acceptable. Filet overcooked and the mashed potatoes were lukewarm. I’m still a fan but they can do better.

We were a party of four and we all tasted each other’s entrees. We agreed we liked all four so much we couldn’t decide which was best. Bruleed Lemon Curd dessert was fave

Came for a birthday Sunday brunch. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was really goo! We had the eggs Benedict and the shrimp and grits. Good flavors, perfect size portions. The only slight negative was that it was a little warm in there and there were no ceiling fans or air moving. They brought a cream puff with candles for my son’s birthday which was nice. Definitely will be back!

We have eaten at Brasserie Ten Ten many, many times and have always loved it. We have also come here for Easter Brunch for years and it has been such a treat.
Today’s Easter Brunch was a big disappointment. Our favorite beignets came with only 5 on the plate, with a scant smear of lemon curd and only one was dusted with powdered sugar. It was as if they were afraid they were going to run out of ingredients and cut back on the serving size. Easter here has always been busy and they have never skimped before. We were there early too. Maybe someone new was in charge of purchasing food for the day and didn’t order enough for the anticipated reservations.
Please do not ever cut back on what we know, especially on a holiday morning.
My favorite crepes did not include the usual side greens (salad) and the hollandaise sauce was loaded with cayenne pepper!!!! My mouth was burning. Had I known the chef had decided to spice it up, I would NOT have ordered them. When I mentioned it to our server he told us that the chef decided to change it for a new flare. Why change a classic entree that has been on the menu forever? It’s a hollandaise sauce!

The music was very loud, so it was difficult for the four of us to have a conversation. The table next to us complained but it was not turned down-at least to a conversational level. It is already a vibrant restaurant and loud music takes away from the ambiance. Even our server had a difficult time hearing us when taking our order.

I am not sure if they hired a new chef, a new manager or both but it has always been consistently wonderful in the past and today was sorely lacking.

I hope they take my comments to heart and make some corrections to bring it back to the standard for which Brasserie Ten Ten is known.

Unfortunately the waiter was distant with zero personality. He would set drinks and food on the table literally turning his head from the table with no eye contact. In my 60 years of living all over it was one of the oddest waiters we’ve run across. Very odd duck.

In one visit to Brasserie Ten Ten, it has easily become my favorite restaurant within the vicinity of Denver. The food was absolutely delicious, prepared perfectly, and delivered with thoughtful timing. Our waiter Adam M. was probably one of the best I've ever had as well. He did a great job taking care of us without coming off as overwhelming, and made us feel comfortable in what could easily have been made a stuffy setting: French Dining. 10/10!

Brasserie Ten Ten is my go-to place in town for Brunch, small plates lunch/happy hour and dinner. I'm never disappointed when I visit. I know that saying that a restaurant is consistent may be construed as boring but it's anything but. No, it's probably not the trendiest place in town in terms of an inventive menu (no grapefruit slivers with kale foam surrounded by local wild elderflowers) but trust me, that's a great option to have. I really appreciate knowing that I can swing by for small plates and a cocktail and I'll leave happy. And their prices are amazing. I appreciate having a solid dinner or happy hour option with out of town visitors or guests. The service is always on point and and the people watching is always stellar.

My wife and I ate at Brasserie Ten Ten for an early dinner on a Saturday and it was wonderful! We started with the mussels with the lamb sausage and it was perhaps the best we'd ever had. We split the duck breast special with a glass of viognier that paired perfectly with it. Though not normally a duck fan, I loved the way BTT served it crispy with a spicy cabbage side. They were excellent together! Finally, we ended with the Taylor Fladgate port flight and the chocolate, raspberry torte. The torte was light but very tasty and the port matched it perfectly. Altogether a fabulous meal!

Had brunch. We had a reservation and were seated within a few minutes of it. The service, with an earnest waiter was great, checked in, not overwhelmed us.

We all enjoyed our dishes overall. I found the onion soup was actually somewhat sweet and thinner broth than 'perfect'. Probably would not order that again. Another guest ordered a steak medium rare, but came closer to rare. She was OK with that, and much better than overdone! The french dip and tuna salad were both well prepared and good. Shared a rasberry torte, which was rich and good.

Restaurant was full, but items came out well timed, and also pretty much together on the entrees. Definitely would come back again!

We met up with another couple here for lunch hoping for a quiet setting so we could catch up on family events. The food and service was good, but we were a bit surprised it wasn't as quiet as we expected. Since we were traveling, we were eating out a lot and had food at a number of very good restaurants and brew pubs, but all seemed to be very noisy. Still, I will recommend Brasserie Ten Ten highly.

We came to the Brasserie to celebrate an anniversary, and the evening went above and beyond my expectations. Our server Adam was patient with our indecisiveness/desire to settle in and chat for a little before ordering, but was always nearby and checking in without being pushy or disruptive. Likewise, he greeted us warmly and offered some us some champagne to celebrate the occasion. Every dish we ordered was delicious, and the staff did a great job spacing it out so that we didn't get bombarded with all the various items at one time. Our table's location was fantastic, as was the ambiance and the date as a whole. Thanks Brasserie for helping make our night so special!

Food was very good. Service was very poor. Servers werre inattentive to drink refills and were unaware that too many used dishes were cluttering up the table making it congested and uncomfortable to eat, and when new food would not arrive, they seemed clueless as to the need to clear the used plates to make room for new ones. It was a very claustrophobic eating experience. It almost seemed as though they tried to get away with giving us lower end items at happy hour. They brought ketchup instead of the taragon aioli that comes with the fries. And twice neglected to bring the horseradish we requested for our oysters, instead only bringing the cocktail sauce. The mussels, while not amazing, were very good and certainly some of the best in Colorado, and good enough for us to order a second order. They were in a tyme creme fraiche broth which was excellent. The fries were good but nothing special about them. The brie was not as high end as I would expect for a Brasserie, and was quite small for the price, but tasted good and went very fast among us at the table. The oysters, like the mussels, were not as amazing as you’d find on the E/W Coast, but crisp and tasty nevertheless. Overall, for Colorado, this is a very good restaurant. Good food, great location, nice atmosphere. But could use a little more conscientiousness from the wait staff.

Overall, Brasserie is a great experience, usually but it's getting more and more difficult to eat out. I'm tired of going to nicer restaurants that do not request that guests step outside if they're going to talk on their phones, or watch videos or share them. It would also be nice if staff could ask people to mute their phones or put them on airplane mode. It's not fair to the other guests who may wish to have a nice, quiet dining experience in a great restaurant that prides itself on nice/casual/fine/dining. When dining yesterday, one woman was sitting alone waiting on someone else and we could hear her entire conversation on the phone from across the restaurant. What's the point of dining out if it's going to be chaotic and annoying like the office? I was also disappointed that the waiter serving the table next to me kept bumping into me as they tried to 'properly' serve the table. Don't crowd guests, don't loom over guests, and don't bump into guests.
