This was my first time at Five and Ten and I could not have been more impressed. The physical space is gorgeous and meticulously maintained. The menu was creative and varied. The waitstaff was almost more impressive than the food. These people take their career very seriously. I knew I was in for a treat when I inquired if they had Sancerre on their wine list, and my server immediately directed me to another Sauvignon Blanc that was from the region next to Sancerre. The pimento cheese with bacon jam was served with thinly sliced, perfectly toasted french baguette. For small plates I chose the carpaccio with mushroom and mushroom conservation and the blistered shishito peppers with blood orange kosho. If I could have a complaint, it was that there were many words on the menu that I didn't know....but as my server said "That's why I'm here." and he was able to give me immediate descriptions of anything unfamiliar to me. The large plate choice was the restaurant's signature dish. Frogmore stew. So delicious with the shrimp and andoullie sausage in a slightly spicy tomato broth, it reminded me of a good paella without the rice. Anyone who enjoys a fine dining experience will love Five and Ten.

The special appetizer was very good, as was the burrata, but the pasta was practically tasteless. It could have used a bit of salt. The mushroom "paste" under the beef on the beef carpaccio plate gave the entire dish a musty, funky taste.
We were disappointed that a celebrity-chef driven restaurant would not offer tastier food for the price.

Love, love, love! Everything about our meal was perfect. The peach and burrata appetizer was amazing. Our entrees of the pasta dish and steelhead trout were delicious. To end our meal, they had their famous Tres Leches cake. It is, hands down, the best Tres Leches cake I ever had and I have had many. If it’s on the menu, get it! Don’t think twice.
Bra was a sheer delight as our server. Attentive, friendly, engaging. She timed our meal perfectly. Top notch service from Bea!
As always, I can’t wait to be back

We had Megan as our waitress, and she was fantastic. Helpful but not too helpful, knew the menu really well and brought dishes in phases so we were always trying something new. She was a big part as to why our dinner was so fantastic and I hope to be at one of her tables again!

We were also running late and I called and we were easily able to bump our reservation back 15 minutes which we really appreciated.

Best meal I've had in months. Thank you!

Frankly this is just one of the best restaurants in Georgia. The food is always innovative, exciting and delicious. We had a starter special, a couple small plates and two outstanding entrees. The catfish and frog more stew are excellent. The chocolate decadence dessert is maybe the best dessert I’ve ever eaten. We will be back.

The service was perfect. Cocktails were 5/5. I would say that the sides were not nearly as good as the entrees. Would definitely visit again! I really enjoyed the stew- that broth was to die for!

After an incredible first experience at Five and Ten with my sister, I brought my sister and her husband back to see if the first experience was a fluke. It wasn’t a fluke. It was as fantastic, if not more. The restaurant has a lot of charm; the food and the service (thanks, Hank!) are second to none.

Wonderful evening! The food, drinks, interesting wine list and fabulous desserts are not to be missed. The restaurant is in a lovely older home which adds to the ambiance. There is a beautiful wrap-around porch which would be great during cooler months. The servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The service was nicely paced and every dish we tried was terrific. From oysters on the half shell to a decadent citrus white chocolate creme brulee, there was not one misstep. We will definitely return and would recommend it highly to anyone seeking a creative culinary experience in Athens.
