As always, great personal service and great food! This was during Seattle Restaurant Week... three dinner courses for $31 and there were many options from which to choose! Good wine choices! They did forget to bring their plate of bread, but we didn't remind them since we're both on diets!

We had not eaten at 10 Mercer on years, but returned for pre-theater dinner. Excellent menu options with fresh ingredients. The meats done perfectly. There must be a new chef. Service friendly and accommodating

Tried out Ten Mercer for Restaurant Week. Very quiet Sunday night, didn't need a reservation although we had one. Our server was very attentive and kept up with our water and checking on us. Appetizer was bacon-wrapped figs, yum. Each of us ordered a different entree and shared bites. Pork tenderloin was cooked well and the spaetzle was nicely crispy. Beef tenderloin was juicy. For dessert, Ten Mercer was out of the chocolate torten, which disappointed us. I had the profiteroles with peanut butter whipped cream, light and fluffy, and tried a bite of my friend's creme brulee, which was also good.

I felt like American food, but didn't want to pay the prices at a $$$ restaurant in Queen Anne. Ten Mercer had the food of a $$$ restaurant at $$ prices. The salad was very crisp with a sunflower seed topping. The special (swordfish) was moist and delicious (I'm often disappointed when swordfish seems dry). The beef medallions tasted like steak, in a very rich mushroom/sun-dried tomato gravy. Our waiter was attentive and had a lively personality. So, we enjoyed an interesting meal and felt it was a good value.

We were there for the beginning of Restaurant Week. The fix prie menu was quite nice. The salad options were the highlights. Trout was good, the sole looked like a crusted pancake but the taste was good. While we hoped to have a very nice dinner, we just had a good dinner. Can't complain but, can't give you anything stellar.

This is our favorite restaurant to visit prior to going to the theater. On many occasions, we sit at the bar. However, on this night, we asked for a quiet table upstairs. They gave us a table in the corner that was perfect and overlooked the outside windows. I love to start my meal with their Mercer Salad - yummy green goddess dressing. Our entrees were delicious. We topped it off with a port and godiva chocolate coffee - yum. The service was great. We had a wonderful meal.

The servers were slow and forgot to give us one of our drinks. The food was all also pretty mediocre. The wild boar ribs had no meat on them which I'm not sure if it's by design or from poor preparation. The ambiance was nice with the lights and candles though.

We have been dining at Ten Mercer almost since it first opened and have never been disappointed. We no longer live in Seattle, but were in town for the opera recently and were pleased to find that the operation still maintains a high level of food and, especially, service. Our waiter (Server ID 18 - apologies for not remembering the name) went so far as chasing me a full block down Mercer St. with an umbrella I foolishly left by my chair when we left! We'll be back!

Our time at the restaurant was made especially wonderful by our wait staff person, who, unfortunately, we can't remember her name. She had a GREAT attitude, very attentive but not too much, and just all around wonderful.
The food was perfectly seasoned and the cocktails were inventive and tasty!

The waitress forgot to place my order for a salad. So when my main dish arrived and I asked about my salad, the waitress asked me if I wanted it then. No, I said, SALAD is a STARTER ITEM. The manager kindly offered a dessert, gratis, but I declined, since I'm trying to lose weight.

We had the same service person like last time and he was even worse now. He took the order, brought the wine and salad then disappeared. The people coming in after us were served main dishes while we were still waiting (more than 30 minutes between the salad and the main dish), without any update. We finally asked another server and the reason given was that it was busy, but other people arriving after us were served well before us. We are not planning to return there anytime soon.

Alas. If only the food were as lovely as the atmosphere and the service. One has to love this place for its effort and long term commitment to providing a fine dining experience near the Seattle Center cultural venues. The cocktails are grand, the wine list exquisite. The menu and food preparation, however fall quite a bit short of truly fine dining. Nonetheless, it remains the best option for an opera/ballet/Seattle Rep night.

This is one of the best pre-opera or theater options near the Center. Reliable tasty, reasonably priced and friendly staff.

We will go back because it's one of our favorite standby places near the Center. The roasted chicken dish, BTW, is delicious and generous.

The restaurant used to be one of the Ford factories and it's interior details are interesting. The price point isn't cheap or moderate but the food was worth the price and (for us) great for a special occasion. In a city with so many choices this will be in our top 5. The service was also great and personable.

The food, ambiance, and service was beyond wonderful. I would've appreciated more than only two vegetarian options, but it was great.
The only downside that I think A LOT of restaurants need to think is the ventilation. When we left the restaurant, our clothes smelled as if we worked in a fast food chain for 4 hours. Definitely won't go there before an event because I will smell like food.
