Ten Mercer Ratings and Reviews
A group of us attended pre-opera for dinner. Great location on lowe Queen Anne in a lovely renovated building near Seattle Center. They have a gluten free menu which was important for one of us and she also needed modifications because she also is allergic to a dairy protein. They were happy to oblige. Service was attentive. Of the six of us, two had the flat iron salad, two had the tenderloin, one had another steak, and then shrimp or was it scampi pasta. Everyone loved their food which is actually kind of unusual. They have a large alcohol selection (hard liquor) and some wines. A little noisy but the windows were open (it was quite warm) so there was some street noise. I would think it would not be a great option for kids. Will definitely come back.
This is my neighborhood "go to" place, perfect for before / after events at Seattle Center. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will get you served and out the door in time for the first bell at McCaw Hall! And they will be waiting with great nightcaps and dessert when you return to discuss the latest production at Seattle Rep. I love 10 Mercer, so thankful it is there!
We were so pleased with our meal at 10. Probably 50% of your dinning experience is the wait staff and Laura was fantastic. It was a special occasion and we had come a long way. Even though it was an especially busy night we were not rushed. We had time to enjoy our cocktail before food started to arrive and were encouraged to take our time and enjoy our meal. The food was just as good as the service. We commented several times during the evening that we had really enjoyed our meal. I will go again.
I would have given this restaurant a much higher review had the kitchen staff not been so obnoxiously loud. There was hooting and hollering l, laughing and talking loudly, so much so, that it was difficult to have a conversation with my companion. The food was decent - not fantastic though. Service was good. Not sure I would recommend this restaurant or that I would return. Disappointing.
Being a block from our hotel on a rainy eve made it the perfect choice. A very unpretentious, tasty meal and a varied menu to choose from. Good wine list. Server was friendly and just attentive enough. This was not a trendy or cutting edge dining experience but a comforting and satisfying one. Nice welcoming neighbourhood spot.
This is a great restaurant in the niche between gourmet and bistro. The food is original, well prepared, and delicious. The service is impeccable. The wine list is good. The bar and the mixed drinks are excellent. The atmosphere is casually elegant and very friendly. It's also within walking distance to McCaw Hall, The Cornish Playhouse, and the Bagley-Wright Theatre ('Seattle Rep' for you locals). An excellent place to relax and eat and drink well...
The absolute best pre theatre or post performance spot in Seattle Center area. They totally support all the local arts organizations as well . We have been coming here for years before opera, ballet , rep , OTB or SIFF events.
Great wine list lots of food options at all price points. Vegetarian options too. Reservations a must before and after performances.
A friend and I dined at 10 Mercer prior to attending the opera on Friday, May 19. Our service was prompt, and pleasant and the restaurant was supportive of our deciding to split our salads and dessert choices. I have dined there many times, and am always delighted to return.
My party of five hit Ten Mercer after the Storm game on Mothers Day. I made reservations because of what I had read online, and because of the proximity to the Key Arena. The Ten Mercer did not disappoint. I ordered their New York along with a Ten Martini: both of them were fabulous. The steak was huge by gourmet restaurant standards, and absolutely melted in my mouth, as did their signature martini. While the prices were above my threshold for every-day dining, everyone in my party had large servings, in some cases more than they could eat, which I think speak volumes for a gourmet food provider. Ten Mercer is now on my short list of places to go for the next special occasion. Thank you Ten Mercer!
Salads and main entrée on par with similar restaurants of this price range, slightly innovative without going too far out on a limb. Sides of vegetables, potatoes are sub standard. Service was intermittent. Food and bar drinks were expedited, but the ordering and check-out process was too slow. Decent gluten-free options.
I went with a friend on a Saturday night. We had a reservation and were immediately seated. The hostess was friendly. I have a very delicious meal. I had the ratatouille for an appetizer and the risotto for my entree. My friend had the grilled romaine salad and the chicken. For dessert, we shared the dessert sampler which is three full-size desserts. We each had the rose wine flight which featured wines from Washington, Oregon, and California. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. Overall, I was very pleased with the dining experience. I recommend this as a nice dining spot in the Queen Anne area of Seattle. I plan to return.
This meal wasn't quite up to previous visits, but it was pleasant. The appetizer was quite good, the wine was good, though it didn't suit my entree as well as it might have. I was a little disappointed my entree compared to previous visits, but that's a matter of taste, not a reflection on the quality, which was good -- I'll go with the lamb next time. My dinner companion enjoyed her appetizer, fish, and wine. I quite like the ambiance of the restaurant and the couple who got engaged as I was enjoying my (very, very good) after dinner port provided a very lovely moment of quiet entertainment. I'll be back and would happily recommend it to friends.
We always go to10 Mercer for dinner with friends before the theater at the Rep. The wait staff are super friendly and the food is always good. They easily accommodate to timing issues so you won't be late for whatever it is you want to get to on time.
It's a tradition at this point in time; a good one. Enjoy.
My husband and I ate here before attending the ballet at McCaw Hall. It is conveniently located just a few blocks away at the foot of Queen Anne Hill. The decor is modern and sleek, elegant in its own way. The staff is exceptional. We had the wild boar as an appetizer and the wild greens salad. Both of these were great. My husband then had the sole, which he said was very good. I had the duck breast, and while it was good, it was nothing special. But given that the rest of the meal was so good and the staff also excellent, we would not hesitate to go back for dinner there again. It is a scale above casual, which is what we are looking for when we go to theater events.
10 Mercer is always pretty great. I was dining here during Seattle Resturant week. Overall, the food was pretty great. One miss: the salmon fettuccine had entirely too much nutmeg. My date called it eggnog pasta... beyond that, the food was pretty good. Drinks were also good and the dining experience overall was nice.
