    We went for the Mother’s Day experience and it did not disappoint. The Spanish Tortilla was top notch. As was the Bibb lettuce and the Gazpacho. The pasta is always a hit with our family. But, the chicken, oh the chicken! I cannot put into words how much I enjoyed it. It was phenomenal. I see there is something similar, currently on the menu, and I’m tempted to come in and have it again. It was that good. Service is always top notch as is the ambiance. One of my favorite restaurants in Athens

    Way overrated. We waited an hour from the time we were seated until we received our appetizer. The salad was tasteless and the dressing was bland. The strawberry gazpacho was tasty but the portion was very small. The roasted chicken was dry, overcooked and had no flavor. Our skillet of cornbread did not come until the entre was finished. The strawberry shortcake was the best part of the meal, but again so small it was not sharable. The atmosphere was loud as we had an indoor table. Overall not worth the prices for portions, flavor or quality. So disappointed after waiting years to come here.

    What a beautiful restaurant! We took some dinner entree recommendations from our server, Kendal - we were quite pleased. The fried catfish was lightly breaded, tender and flavorful, some of the best fish I've ever had. The pasta primavera was quite good as well. The service from Kendal was top notch, just the right combination of efficient and friendly / casual. Pricing was fair, averaging about $50 per person with a shared appetizer, two entrees, and drinks. We happened to be on vacation during this trip, but this is certainly a place we'd return to in the future. While we chose to sit inside on this visit, they do have a beautiful outdoor patio as well - I'd probably try that for next time.

    The food was incredible. The quality was so fresh and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is a converted house and so there are only a few tables per room which is great for noise level but maybe not the ambiance that everyone wants. Perfect for special date nights though. All of the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.

    Taste: 4/5... but overall a BAD experience. Wait staff were not even close to professionally dressed. They looked like they were wearing whatever they woke up and out on to gender study class that day. If I'm going to pay $60 for a 6 oz tenderloin I expect SOME presentation. TINY portion sizes. Service was SLOW. Waiter IGNORED us several times. When I asked him SPECIFICALLY not to place silverware directly onto the uncovered outdoor table, he ignored us, and out of embarrassment my better half told him not to worry about it. Now here I am the next day sick as hell. If this dysentery doesn't fade soon I may need to go to the hospital. Worst part of all this is that they charge so much for this terrible service and tiny portion sizes. Yeah sure, it's great to go to a higher-price place so I don't have to listen to poor people's crying babies.. but this place does NOT hold up their end of the bargain. I absolutely will not be returning. If the owner is reading this post DO NOT contact me, I do not want an apology, I do not want to deal with you. Shame on this restaurant. If you're looking for a good place in Athens to dine. DO NOT go here. Maybe try South Kitchen and bar, still bad service, but at least you'll save a ton and not catch disease from negligence.

    New tables and chairs look and enhance the comfortable feel of 5&10. The menu seems more focused. Food was scrumptious. After appetizers (pimento cheese/serrano ham), small plates of salad and beets and main courses of catfish/mahi mahi, not a spec was left on plates.
