Dinner with my son before the KU basketball team. Everything about this restaurant pick was perfect! Food, service, ambience, and Ericka, our hostess who took excellent care of us! Will definitely be back!

Worst dining experience I ever had. Was there with my girlfriend, having gone to the game that afternoon for my birthday. Service was extremely slow. The wine was overpriced, off-color, and had an acidic taste. We finally got our entrees after NEVER receiving our salads. The food was luke-warm at best. The party of six seated next to us got up and left without paying after receiving their food and finding it cold. Only time in my life I left less than 15% tip (I left zero). Avoid this restaurant like the plague.

We had a reservation & were seated on time. It goes downhill from there. They were slow to bring water & take drink orders. Staff was inattentive. After placing our order, an hour later we received cold steaks, they offered to heat them up. We declined the offer, paid for our drinks and left.

Went here for Sunday brunch after business meeting. Poor attitude of server, service very slow and it wasn't even busy, maybe 3 other tables besides us. The food was delivered to table long after prepared since all was pretty cold. Powdered eggs used, and cold.

The hostess, bussers, and food runners were friendly though.

waitress attentive and accommodating, hostess gave us booth in window to watch the snow and shoppers go by. Buffet had wide array of delicious selections and desserts. We were allowed to talk and not rushed out the door once our meal was done. This is a great place with wonderful ambience.

We ate an early dinner at Ten prior to attending an OSHER Adult Ed class at KU. The food was excellent although we ate very early (5pm) because of the class. The only downside was that a loud party in the bar was very audible in the dining room.

We've eaten in the bar at Ten several times with great service and excellent food. This trip was horrendous. The service was poor, the orders were incorrect and we had to fetch our own silverware, water and cocktails. Hoping it was just a bad night for them but not sure we'll rush back.

I always bring visiting business guests to the Eldridge for meals because we can talk there. The booths are great. Not the most exciting menu or venue, but great for serious conversations where you want to really lean into what the other person is saying.

We had a late seating and our order got messed up. The waitress was very rude about it! I'm guessing she wanted to go home. They shouldn't have a 9 pm seating if they don't want to serve you.
Later another male server came and boxed up our food and was much nicer. Hostess also nice. Just had unhappy waitress!

We did not have a great experience. We waited a long time for a server to take our order. My husband got the Osso Bucco and it was cold, as were the mashed potatoes that accompanied it. My daughter got the filet medium, and it was rare, and served with cold mashed potatoes. We had to ask twice for bread, and water glasses were empty for much of the meal. To be fair, I ordered the Kansan salad and the penne with vodka sauce and both were very delicious, though the penne was just above room temperature. All in all, I can't recommend it and we won't go back.

Good: the corner booth and the quiet room were a nice setting for a reunion of five friends and family. Pasta and onion soup were good.
Not good: High prices, inept forgetful service, and tepid, dry Osso Buco made with gigantic whole pork shanks that seemed at least a foot long. Would have sent it back but it had killed my appetite.

Sunday nite @ 8 only three tables so very quiet ---- everything was very good especially the food. Do not know how busy it is other nights

Disappointed. Waitress poor- didn't come back once our first round of drinks served to ask if second drink or wine wanted, no refill of water until after bill paid, just went absent on us. Table of 6 with two orders of mussels and so way too much for 1 person. The mussels were tough and tasteless. The toast served with this was cut too thick and it was stale. Two orders of the pasta and chicken was bland. 1 order crab cakes were large and poorly seasoned. A large part of the plate was an arugula salad and the person eating it said it tasted like grass. One order of scallops and only three small scallops on this large plate. I will not return to this restaurant and would not recommend to anyone. There are too many great restaurants in Lawrence and it's just not worth it at this establishment.

My bride ordered the pork loin and it was overcooked and dry. I ordered the ossobuco and it was exquisite and plenty for both of us. Service was great. We rarely have a bad experience here.

We had good and attentive service, and my guests liked their drinks and the food, and we were able to linger over conversation for an hour or more.

I have enjoyed the Sunday brunch at the Ten several times in the past when visiting my daughter at KU. I thought it would be nice to have brunch there following Graduation this past Sunday. I was mistaken. The Ten clearly went for the money grab by moving the buffet into the lobby of the hotel so they could pack in more people. We were seated in the bar area which is great if you are just having drinks but not the place for brunch. There were insufficient staff on hand so there were numerous items on the buffet that were not timely replenished and many of the hot items were cold. In addition, several key items were missing from the brunch including the omelette station. To add insult to injury, they did not include coffee and an orange juice or mimosa as they normally do with the price of the brunch which is $29 per person. In short, a very disappointing meal on a very special occasion. Shame on you Ten!
