    The overall feel of the restaurant was warm and friendly. The room we were seated in was small and, although all the tables near us were full, very quiet. The service was excellent. ALL the staff were lovely: friendly, helpful, and attentive. I give 4 rather than 5 stars only because there were SO MANY of them. We must have been (briefly) interrupted by at least eight different people. The food was good quality and generally well prepared, but with a range of flavor and portion sizes. The duck liver pate rocked. The best I’ve had. Loved the gelatin top. Enough for two to share as an appetizer. The pasta bolognese was good. The amount was more than one of us would normally eat at one sitting. The trout dish was smaller and nicely cooked, but it did not really pop, perhaps because the flavor is understated relative to other dishes we chose. The small amount that I took home was lovely on its own the next day. The turnip and meyer lemon was new to me and a nice accompaniment. The pommes macaire were cleverly presented, but bland. They did make a great vehicle for the accompanying aioli. The chocolate nemesis was everything one could want in a rich chocolate dessert. The semifreddo looked lovely and had good texture but little flavor. It was massive by almost any standard. It was topped by such a thick layer of chocolate that breaking through it was frustrating and by a thin wafer described as a shortbread cookie, but tasting more of flour than butter. As to value, I come here only as a special treat as there are other restaurants below this price point whose food I enjoy at least as much. In short, everything at The Five & Ten was generally what one would expect at a top end restaurant. The ambiance and service are excellent, possibly the best in Athens. The range and inventiveness of the menu are notable. The food was good, although a couple dishes disappointed a bit and there was an unexpected range of portion sizes.

    The food was delicious and excellently prepared. But what made the experience special was our server, Bob. He was delightful, knowledgeable about each food and beverage item, very attentive without being intrusive, and charming. His professionalism, coupled with the quality of the food, took the experience to a very high level.

    I rarely visit high-end restaurants but I'm glad I went to Five and Ten. We spent the entire meal just talking about how surprising, inventive, and satisfying every dish was. The servers were friendly, knowledgeable, and deft. It's expensive, but afterwards, without question, we agreed it was worth every cent.

    This restaurant is in an old mansion type building with a very nice but small bar area. The menu was limited to 5 entrees and they were out of 1. While the service was excellent and the food was very good, we found the offerings to be a bit overpriced.

    We always look forward to going to Five and Ten. The food is delicious and presented beautifully. Our waitress was attentive and helpful. I know that restaurants like to clear the table of what they believe are completed dishes, however, this time they were taking our plates off the table as we were eating on them. Twice we told them we were not finished, once I had to tell them that there was still a large amount of pimento cheese in the jar and that we were not through, and then I had to tell them I needed my plate back to eat the pimento cheese. When we ordered desert and had pretty much finished, another person came to take those plates away. I asked them if there was something going on that they were rushing us, or was someone waiting for our table 9:00 PM? She said as they all did, they did not know we were still eating. This was so unusual for this restaurant. It is a "fine dining" restaurant and to be rushed is certainly not expected.

    We have been coming to the 5&10 since moving here in 2020. Love the bartender (Ballard) and the drink selection. Food is excellent, very well presented and wait staff is great. However, I was very disappointed to notice a 3% service charge added to my ticket. It’s in the fine print on the bottom of the menu but you probably wouldn’t notice it. This is in addition to the tip. This is a fine restaurant but they should just charge more for the meal instead of tacking on this silly charge. My trust in the restaurant has diminished and will be less likely to go there in the future.

    One never knows if the experience will be the good five and ten or the erratic five and ten. Tonight, the erratic. One course was not delivered and the entrees were overly salted. The bartenders, however, are always great.

    Dined with friends from out of town and once again, Five & Ten was an excellent experience. Cocktails and starters were delivered quickly and enjoyed by everyone. The Pate served with Grilled Sourdough was particularly good, and while the entrees were lovely, the star of the evening was the Celeriac Soup which was perfection. A creamy soup with tart apples (crisp not mushy) and shrimp (not overcooked), delicately seasoned and served at the perfect temperature. It was a treat! The evening was completed with perfect service -personable and attentive - that is the mark of a truly great restaurant.

    My bday. I chose the restaurant. Menu was slim. No one was able to find a meal that they wanted. Drinks were warm (_apparently they don’t want ice in their drinks) and yet the soups were cold. Odd place. Waitress was an A +. Selling that menu must be difficult.

    We will not return. 2 appetizers, crackers and brie, a plate with a few fried potato cakes, 2 glasses wine, and 2 desserts was $180 including tip. We didn’t even get entrees for that price. Pear salad was oily and only covered 25% of the plate. Brie was served hard and cold. Fried potato squares were not innovative and tasted like they came out of freezer and deep fried. I would never go to McDonalds, but imagine their fries would taste better. Mushroom soup and desserts were only reason we gave 3 stars. Server was kind and attentive. I can not fathom how this restaurant received James Beard recognition other than thru ambiance and service.

    Excellent experience with lots of southern charm. Beautiful house and patios. Loved the bathroom with the plants! Our mini poodles were welcome on the porch which was much appreciated since we were traveling and didn’t want to leave them at the hotel. Would definitely recommend if visiting Athens. Everything was foodie heaven with excellent service.

    We’ve always loved this restaurant, haven’t been to Athens in a couple years so it’s been a while. The portions are what we consider reasonable, but some might think they aren’t big enough. Would like more gluten free & dairy free choices now that my dietary needs have changed. We’re disappointed they don’t serve Sunday brunch any more.
