At Ten Tables JP, our modest size and open kitchen create an opportunity for you to enjoyably be part of the experience. Our newly expanded space, which created a stylish but laid-back bar, is warmly appointed with reclaimed wood and exposed brick, giving us a decidedly European feel. Whether you just stop in for a drink and light bite at a high-top in the bar, or stay for a full meal at one of our dining room tables, you will come to enjoy a sophisticated and stylish space that all at once feels as familiar and comfortable as home.

I read lots of wonderful reviews, but I was not overly impressed. The salad (not cheap) was boring and soggy - so sad about this.

The tagiatelle was yummy, but for $30.00 I wish I got as much duck as my friend did
who ordered the same thing.

I am in no rush to go back here.

As always the food and service was great! The noise level was OK, too....we went early before it was crowded.

As seniors (with hearing loss!), we don’t like loud spots...so we avoid the very busy times.

Love TT....best neighborhood restaurant in JP!

Ten Tables' food and service are always outstanding. If you can get in for one of their monthly wine dinners, do it - it's the best deal around for a creative and delicious 4 course meal paired with exceptional wines. I live on the other side of the city but trek to JP specifically for Ten Tables at least twice a year. It's easily my favorite restaurant in all of greater Boston.

The good is really u usual and delicious. The wine pairings were great except for the dessert wine this time, but usually they are all on point. Ten Tables is consistently excellent.

The appetizers lacked flavor but the entrees were great. Don't think the price matched the quality though.

The ac wasn’t working, we were literally sweating, the ice was melting faster than we could drink our drinks… The halibut was very dry seem like it was pre-cooked

I'd remembered this place as much better. We were there on a hot night and it was uncomfortable in the main room (to be fair, it's shared with the kitchen). Some dishes were a bit melted as a result of the heat (chocolate terrine & basil ice cream in particular). Our salads were so salty that we could not eat them and sent them back (and my husband is a salt fiend, so it really says something). Waiter was lovely and brought us new ones that were fine. Burrata/brown rice/carrot dish (veggie entrée) was bland and too homogeneous in texture for my taste. Having several waiters was a bit strange but each one was lovely and generous with us.

Get together with friends from abroad whom we haven’t seen in many years. This was the best meal that they have had in the US! We had the tasting menu, and the party was served two different “omnivore” menus. All the dishes were great.

Jessica was AMAZING! There are many reasons for us to revisit Ten Tables, but Jessica was hands-down the best server we have ever had. She really & truly redefined our expectations for what dining out can be. And, if you are not lucky enough to get her when you visit you will most definitely not be disappointed - everything was delicious and expertly prepared!

Had high hopes for this place but apart from the wine, everything else was disappointing.
The food was horrible - 4 courses of either pure salt or super bland put together, sloppy presentation, just unimpressive overall.
Would not recommend or ever return.

Absolutely magnificent meal. Every morsel of my lobster pasta and asparagus appetizer was perfect. The rhubarb galette with spruce ice cream was sensational. Perfect attentive service to tip it off.

We enjoyed our evening at Ten Tables. My only complaint is that the menu did not seem seasonally driven. most of the dishes felt more like Fall/Winter comfort food and I was expecting to find more summery items to choose from.

We ordered:
- the scallops (way over salted!)
- summer salad (very very oily)
- Other foods we ordered were: focaccia (good but very small), cheese board (good), vegetable frittatas (overspiced).

--> It's not that we don't like spicy or salty foods (we are Indian-Chinese couple). but this was too much.

Otherwise the service was good and the cocktails were good.

Loved it. Food was incredible. Portions were a bit small (mine was fine as a petite woman, but my husband left hungry), could've used more food for the price and a bit more mindfulness about it from our waitress (i.e. we ordered an appetizer which was a bread with a sort of dip, there were 4 of us at the table, 3 small pieces of bread came out on the plate... I wish they were mindful enough to put a 4th piece of tiny bread on the plate).

It was intimate, thoughtful plates of delicious food, wonderful cocktails, etc. A great experience I would love to have again.

We got the Chef’s Whim tasting menu and it was not worth the 49$ they charge . Our first item was a salad with romaine lettuce and Italian dressing—quite unspectacular. Our next item was Tuna Tartar which was actually quite good. However our entree was a pork chop that simply had no flavor. Finally for dessert we had a flourless chocolate cake and a bread pudding. Both were quite good. Overall, it felt like a waste of money (with drinks and tip it ended up being upwards of $150). Would not go back or recommend.

Ten Tables' wine dinners used to find amazing congruities between wines and food, leading to a wonderful taste sensation. They haven't sustained this standard, and our recent Italian-themed wine dinner was the worst yet. The food--from so-so scallops to greasy pork rind and puréed polenta mash--was definitely disappointing. Its tastes bore no relation to the bizarre series of lackluster wines served. Wine dinners at Ten Tables appear to be a dead tradition.

We came here for a Birthday Dinner and did the Chef's Choice Course with Wine Pairings. There were a few couples around us who did the same and each of us received different course offerings. Not one was similar. It was fun and unexpected! We would definitely do this again. The wine was perfectly matched.

This would easily have been a five start review were it not for the NOISE. We, a party of four, ate there starting at 5:30 pm on Sunday. The walls are brick and there are no sound absorbing materials in the room. A party of 8-9 raucous people entered, only concerned with themselves, and drowned out all our table conversation for the next two hours. We practically had to scream to be heard. The wait staff and management did nothing to ask them to quiet down. This was a shame, because the food was perfection from appetizer to dessert. I've never had a better filet mignon, and the roasted cauliflower appetizer was to die for. In short, the food was beyond memorable, the ambience a disaster.

They burned my pasta, and the server said that it was “supposed to be that way.” I should have sent it back to the kitchen but didn’t. It was a $30 entree dish. Anyway, they gave me a free dessert to make up for it. For such an expensive restaurant, I expected more. I won’t be returning.

We were disappointed. we would come back for a special occasion time and time again usually ordering the chef's tasting menu. And up until our recent visit we were always wowed by the choices and the flavors. This time things were mediocre at best. We were disappointed that they no longer have the chef's table as a seating option, the food was mediocre-at-best being served a side salad and a water down pasta dish it's not what I would come to expect from 10 tables, and when I called the head I notified them that this occasion was to celebrate my wife's birthday the usual candle in it already paid for dessert was absent. It just doesn't feel special anymore not sure why but a follow-up response to this review would be helpful for at least understanding why service and food is gone downhill especially when there are so many high quality restaurants in the area. 10 tables should be the shinies gem amongst other gems but on this visit it was not.

Great food and atmosphere. Best salmon I’ve had in a long time. Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Everyone loves the food. Service was spot on. Only drawback— the place is very pricey.
