We did the Mother's Day lunch and it was perfect in everyway. We ate on the porch, the weather was great, and the food was outstanding. Never a bad meal, but the fixed menu for Mother's Day was well done.

This restaurant is a gem in Athens! The food is always outstanding and creative, plus we left fully satisfied and not overly stuffed with sharing most of their first courses and a few entrees. Cocktails and wine list are excellent too. Highly recommend for any night.

I was delighted when my granddaughter said she would like to go Five & Ten to celebrate her graduation from UGA. This is a restaurant where fine dining is worth the price tag! From the Cava toasts and pimento cheese before dinner to the Milk Cake and Creme Brûlée for dessert, everything was superb. But that’s not all, because the service and atmosphere was unparalleled. Thank you Five & Ten for an unforgettable evening.

The Pork Nevorin was done very well and tender. The vegetables were a bit too much an dente. The scallops were excellent as was the beef. The chocolate dessert was delicious.

My halibut was excellent. My boyfriend and I also tried various delicious mixed drinks, one of which did not sit well with my boyfriend (simply due to difference in taste), and our waitress was so gracious about it, even giving us a dessert on the house to make up for it. I’ve been to Five and Ten several times over the years (with my parents back as an undergraduate), later as a postgrad, and now I shared
it with my boyfriend for the first time. This place is always special to me.

This was our first time at 5&10. We had a reservation for 2 @ 5:00 which is when they open. When we got there they tried to seat us at the crappiest table they have. I was in the restaurant business for a very long time and I would have only sat that table as a last resort. To their credit they did give us a different table upon my request. We ordered a mussel appetizer, which were terrible in my opinion. Watery, flavorless broth and the mussels were extremely “fishy” tasting. For entrees I ordered the Halibut and my husband had the Pork loin, both dishes were outstanding. The server was very attentive. Overall it was just okay as a place to eat.

Our first sit-down meal since Jan 2020, hard to mess it up. Server was awesome (Bob, ask him about limoncello), food was excellent: we went all out cocktails, oysters, wine, dessert...

My wife and I recently splurged at Five and Ten to celebrate our full vaccinations. We hadn't been there for a few years, and it surpassed our expectations and recollections. It truly deserves its national reputations. Every aspect of the meal was exquisite, and the service is unbeatable.

The food was as wonderful as it always is. The monsoon rains tried to give us a no extra charge shower, but everyone dashed around to move our table a bit further from the rainy edge, to lower the blind and fasten it so it would not blow as much, to bring new menus and an extra towel, and to turn on the heat above our table for a few minute.

Patrick was phenomenal with his service, as he has been in the past.

The only suggestion I’d have would be to do something, if possible, to have the individual leaves on the baked artichoke snacks come off more easily.

The sea bass I had was delicate, moist and large enough to have a couple of bites available for lunch the next day. The six oysters I had were good sized and made me wish that I had ordered 6 more. Maybe the Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce will even forgive the person who helped us with that order (not Patrick- he was busy helping another wet guest who’d just arrived soaking wet) who told us the oysters were from Maine.

First timers , very friendly service ( Addison) - he was professional yet approachable, knowledgeable about the menu but honest about the wine menu- which was extensive with European wines.
We had the Caesar salad, burrata starter , 2 servings of the halibut - crisp and delicious along with one scallop entree. Added to the entrees was the cornbread , could have been a little warmer . Really nice ambiance , think eating in someone’s home ,.
Highly recommend this restaurant!

We had a wonderful first visit to this iconic warhorse Athens staple.
The cornbread and honey butter and the pimento cheese and bacon marmalade starters did not disappoint.

The generous portion of Scallops were prepared perfectly and served over a gargantuan portion of roughly mashed peas. A few scallops had some sand/grit and the chef needed more seasoning on most entrees and their accompaniments. Overall, this place was terrific and matches the hype.
