 (New York Area)·Dined 5 days ago

Went out for date night on a Friday - we had gotten a gift card for Ten Tables and had heard good things. We got there about 5 minutes early for our reservation and we’re seated right away. The table was so tiny and RIGHT in the center of the floor, extremely close to other people. If I backed up my chair I would have knocked someone’s dinner off their table. Ten Tables - just get rid of that table. Please. It took about 15 minutes for someone to come over just to fill our water, and we asked her to move tables. She said no problem. It took another 15-20 minutes for a server to come back to take even our drink order, so we thought it best to order our dinner at the same time. Drinks were good. Food was okay - nothing extraordinary and lacked seasoning, and definitely pricey. Overall it was very underwhelming, though hopefully it was just an off night.

Was seated in the window and it was so cold that my coat was wrapped around my legs AND their space heater was next to me. They need to drape the windows or come up with a better solution. Really distracted from the dining.

We decided to try this for place after all the reviews. For NYE they had a pre-fixe menu. Our food was excellent. My husband had the mussels, duck then finished with the sorbet. I had the gnocchi, halibut then apple cake.

The problem was the service. They completely forgot about us. No one checked on us once each course was delivered. Drinks were left unfilled. Our waitress never came back to us after we ordered. We had to call her over to get our check.

Really disappointing since the food was so good.

Not like it used to be! We used to go to Ten Tables all the time until we moved to another neighborhood. Went for New Year’s Eve. I would not recommend. Food is not that special anymore.

Food here is too salty. On a cold evening, it's freezing cold. I was seated directly next to an outside wall and had to keep my parka on through the entire meal. A woman at the next table, facing the other way and well into the room itself, had her hat in addition to her coat on. Although friendly, the waitress kept me waiting a full 25 minutes between the time I finished my soup and when my main course came. Why? Because my wife ordered all appetizers (3 after soup as a first course), and somehow this waitress decided I couldn't have any food until the last of the three appetizers arrived. She might have asked me when I wanted my main course, instead of making a nonsensical decision based on no information.

This restaurant turns quotidian brussels sprouts into a gourmet brussels sprouts. How do they make such a perfectly crisp chicken skin for the Statler chicken?

We enjoyed our dinner very much.

First impressions can be important. They set a tone. Dinner at this restaurant sets a terrific tone for that first date. The staff does their best to help you get to that 2nd date.

My fiancé and I went to celebrate my 36th birthday and this place did not disappoint! We started with some bubbly to celebrate and went with the chef’s tasting (4 course meal) and it was FANTASTIC. Our favorite dish was the 2nd course ceviche - best ceviche I’ve ever had! But seriously all 4 courses were memorable. I can’t believe I’ve been living around Boston for over 12 years and never made the effort to come here sooner! Highly recommend if you’ve never been. Do it! Do it!

The waitstaff were very snobby. When we asked for a coke they made us feel like the unwashed. The short ribs were so salty that the two members of our party could only eat some of it. Re pricing- who charges $5 for bread and butter! Very disappointing given the reviews.

excellent food, drink, atmosphere, and staff. the staff was incredibly polite, humorous, and provided a welcoming experience like having dinner at a friend's house. For a place that brought such quality food to the table, they had such a humble manner of presenting it. to elaborate, the food was brought to us and described breifly (these are the fish cakes, here we have steak with potato cakes) but really what was brought to the table were dishes with such complexity that every bite was a new experience. I highly suggest the tasting menu and will definitely go back in the near future.

I've been to Ten Tables twice in the past 2 months for their monthly 4-course dinner with wine pairings, and both times I have enjoyed the experience. This last visit, the region was Alsace and I absolutely loved the food/wine pairings. All the wines complemented the food choices, but did not overpower the flavor of the food. The previous visit, the region was Tuscany and I was very excited to go since I had been on a trip a year ago to that region, "Cooking in Tuscany". The wine was excellent, but a couple of the food courses were disappointing-the flavor was fine but weak. The other two were excellent.
I found the staff very attentive, friendly and knowledgable (especially in regards to the wines). It is a small restaurant, so the noise level is moderate, but you can still carry on a conversation. I I already have reserved for September-California Coast! And I would love to take visitors for a regular dining experience. I consider this restaurant a gem in Jamaica Plain.

This was our third time attending the monthly wine dinner, a set menu with wine pairings focused on a geographic area (Santorini, Tuscany, Alsace). Food and wines were delicious and service was excellent each time. We already have reservations for next month.

We had such an excellent meal. The tasting menu was definitely worth it for four people. We all pretty much agreed that we would eat anything on the menu, and it's pretty rare when that happens. We got to taste the different salads and appetizers. For the main course, it was the hangar steak and luckily we all got that. Sharing would have been difficult: it was so good!

The rest of my party got the wine tasting as well, which was generous and apparently all very good.

All in all, we had a wonderful time. The food, the service, everything.

Excellent meal. We sat at the counter overlooking the kitchen in the main dining room and the 3 chefs/sous chefs and the waitresses were all really friendly and nice to us. Great to watch the cooking. The food was superb - the duck breast and pasta with duck are highly recommended. Small wine menu but very great choices. A neighbourhood gem.
We'll be back

Food was phenomenal as always. Everything was beautifully presented and very fresh. Shared all plates from the cheese plate which did not only have cheese and bread but delicious jams and chutneys, olives and spiced nuts, to the mussels which were in a savory white wine sauce with andouille sausage and the gnocchi which was handmade and perfectly combined with asparagus and cauliflower. The one thing that could have been improved was the spacing of dishes. The cheeseplate and mussels came out at the same time when they should have been coursed out. It made the table too crowded and the mussels became cold as we completed our cheese plate. Overall though the experience was very positive.

From start to finish, a perfect meal. The staff were friendly and professional and not pushy. We felt comfortable having a leisurely dinner. Comfortable ambience with low lighting and good but non-intrusive background music. We started with cocktails that were very flavorful (leaving on a jet plane!). The marinated hanger steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. We'll be back!
