Having been there in the past and the experience was great. This time unfortunately we had a server that was less than enthusiastic and atmosphere that was very sad a depressing. Food was a 7 out of 10 but overall my wife and I were greatly disappointed.

The scallops were outstanding! The menu was very interesting making it hard to choose. The servers all wore masks and diners were spread apart. I appreciated their safety precautions.

I have been wanting to try TEN for quite some time. And I must say, while overall a good experience, I won't be rushing back. It's a cool venue in the Great Northern Hotel ... beautiful bar and elegant seating. The wine list is quite good - I can see how they have been recognized by Wine Spectator. But the food was dated (early 2000s) and just didn't have that somethin' somethin' to make it stand out. I'm not saying the food was bad, just not what you'd want to eat at a higher end restaurant.

Date night in Billings! It had been a while since we’d been out since COVID and it was just what we needed! We dressed up and had a very romantic, calm, delicious experience at TEN. Great spot for a romantic date night!

Looked at restaurant before we stayed at the Northern Motel. Did not have a complete menu due to COVID but what they presented was outstanding. The Prime Rib and accouterments were five star. My wife had the duck breast and stated it was the best she had eaten in over 40 yrs. The duck was moist and had an excellent sauce that complimented the flavor. Bar drinks were top class and multiple cordials were available. Would go back to Billings and stay at the Northern just to visit again at the TEN.

The service was great and I so appreciate the champagne and card for my birthday. The food was very average. It was oddly quiet...no music and hardly any other people there --granted it was a Monday evening.

I had the prime ribeye steak, cooked to perfection, and absolutely the...BEST Old Fashioned I have ever had (and don’t ever expect to surpass). It was the Old Cap Old Fashioned-they make 3 different Old Fashioned’s- and you do not want to miss it!! Great place for anytime.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at TEN. The specials for the night were smoke salmon ravioli and ginger pineapple pork chop. These two dishes were absolutely amazing! The pork chop was cooked perfectly and was served with roasted carrots and pilaf rice. It was true a perfect experience for us, the staff made a personalized card for us for our anniversary and a free desert. The strawberry shortcake was nothing less than excellent. This will definitely be a spot we frequent in the future. The waitress was very professional and took great care of us in all aspects. Thanks Sara.

Seated next to the kitchen doors and one server kept kicking them as she went thru. Bisque was lukewarm and steak not tender(didn't eat it). Server was wonderful! 1st time there and for what was charged, definitely not worth it. We will not return to the Ten!

Wonderful atmosphere. Great service. Food and drink beautifully presented. Salad was excellent was the scallops. 3 people ordered halibut in our group and it was dry. Overall good experience, but pricy for dry halibut.

My husband and I went to Ten for a long over due date night. We were excited to get some alone time and enjoy great food. Unfortunately, the drinks were the best part of our dinner. We both ordered medium for our steaks and were given very different cooked meat. We sent back my husbands, as it was very rare, thinking it would be up from that point. Unfortunately, half way through mine, I realized that the other half was very rare. Being that we already had to pause dinner once, I did not send mine back. All In all, we payed $50 per steak to be disappointed. Maybe a visit from a manager would of made things better, but it seems costumer satisfaction has been lost from this restaurant.

A very nice restaurant! We were seated promptly and our server immediately contacted us, brought menus, and water. Chris was very friendly, and answered any questions we had. Our drinks were brought quickly and were delicious. We split a wedge salad and an entree of a filet. The steak , mashed potatoes, and green beans were all very tasty....and plenty of food for each of us!

We began a 12 day trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks with a stay in Billings at the Northern Hotel. One of the highlights of the entire trip was dinner at Ten in the Northern Hotal. Food (steak and trout) and cocktails were fantastic. Service from Chris was the best! We mentioned it was our anniversary and she not only surprised us with an amazing cocunut cake but with an anniversary card. A tremendous memory!

On vacation to Cody and Glacier. Last night before flying home to the San Francisco Bay Area. We wanted a memorable dinner with excellent ambiance. Ten was all that. Decor is extremely nice. The food was very good and nicely presented. The bar area looked very interesting too but drinks after was not part of our plan that evening. Ten is an asset to the apparently burgeoning downtown Billings scene. Hats off to the freshness of the central downtown area contributors.

I had the Elk ribeye which was fantastic. Started with the bison marrow, also very delicious. There wasn’t a big crowd as we were there midweek, and the restaurant wasn’t loud, which we liked. But there were enough other guests to make it feel warm. Service was great!

We had such a nice time. We were celebrating Fathers Day. We had the Chicken Panzanella and the Rib Eye both of which were awesome. The panzanella had grapefruit, oranges, beets and these little round white berries that I was told was yogurt. Whatever it is, it is refreshing and tasty. The chicken was moist and delicious. The Rib Eye was huge and the side of asparagus and sweet potatoes were perfect. We were not able to finish either entree so we had enough to take home for another meal. We were very pleased with all...food, service, and atmosphere.
