Japanese
The Japanese word ten can mean "heaven", "above" or "celebration" and the dining experience at TEN modern Japanese restaurant is all of these things.


TEN approaches traditional Japanese dishes as if they were works of modern art. The superior ingredients are the building blocks of inspiration and the plates are crafted to please both the palate and the eye. Superior products are used and the seafood arrives daily from fishing auctions in Japan and Hawaii. Beyond the incredibly fresh sushi, the menu features a variety of hot and cold ala carte items and offers choices for vegetarians as well as non-seafood eaters.


Ten also features an extensive wine list, and specialty cocktails using unique ingredients such as the "Ten" which is comprised of sake, vodka and aloe juice.

Little noisy but food was really good. Server was very motivated about the offerings-made great recommendations. Little pricey for the average bear...

A little pricey but excellent food and a fun time. The menu is setup so you can order a number of different things and share. For the main entree we tried the filet and the seabass. Both had excellent flavor and were melt-in-your mouth tender.

Ten is just great: charming, efficient team(s) at desk, on floor, everywhere, a nice overall ambiance, and every single thing we four ordered last night was absolutely delicious! Cooked and/or raw! The 12-15 chef-selected pieces of nigiri I had were as good as any sushi I’ve ever had anywhere! An appetizer of thin hamachi slices semi-‘cooked’ by a drizzle of warm soy/butter sauce was, well, buttery deliciousness, the kind of food treat you’ll remember for a long time!
We’re all big fans, would recommend Ten to anyone who’s looking for the first-class splurge of a memorable dinner out! Thanks, Ten people!

Our son recommended Ten and now we know why. We lucked on a excellent waiter Jack who added to the enjoyable atmosphere with explanations, recommendations, checking in on our progress and enjoyment and great service. The sushi is creative and diverse. The sashimi (Grade 1 quality - interesting story) is spectacular. And other dishes for the less adventuresome. A really nice wine, beer, saki, and whiskey including Japanese craft beers and whiskeys. This is a Gem. Pricey and noisy at peak hour but a great dinner on the mall.

Food was wonderful--fish was super fresh and perfectly prepared. My companion, who grew up on the water and is an accomplished fish cook in his own right, declared the sea bass the best he has ever had. The ambience and service were also top notch. An excellent experience all around!

Excellent sushi & sashimi. Everything was delicious. Service was a little on the slower side this visit, but they were extremely busy with restaurant week and is not what I have experienced on previous visits. Highly recommend - every dish is great. Can’t speak to dessert as we’re always too full to order any!

My friends and I had a lovely time together. The food was delicious and speedy. Our server knew so much about the menu and the drinks we were interested in which made us feel at ease with our choices. The Chef and Manager kindly accommodated a vegan dietary restriction. It was a great dinner and I'm looking forward to going back again!

Ten has about as delicious a mix of cooked and fresh/raw Japanese food as anywhere our (fairly sophisticated?) foursome has been! Just excellent, all around! The service is always a very good blend of attentiveness and unobtrusiveness, by a personable and knowledgable team, which only adds to the pleasure of the waves of beautiful plates! Thanks, Ten, (& this last trip, our server, Julius, in particular!) for yet another fun night of 1st rate dining!

We had a wonderful dinner at Ten to celebrate our daughter's visit. The food was really delicious, and the waiter who served us was not only extremely welcoming but also very knowledgeable about the different sake offerings. The lighting was a bit dim, but overall the ambiance was very nice, and the restaurant is not noisy. We will certainly be back in the future.

Food was great—in fact, some of the best sushi ever. But service tried to rush us out. We barely started appetizers when meal arrived. They never cleared our dishes. And the restaurant was half full on Friday at 7:30-8:15pm. Fastest $150 meal for two I’ve ever had - I eat in NYC all the time.

Was so upset about service that it ruined the best food.

Met a new lady friend for the first time . We needed time to get acquainted and server was just great . Have us time to first order a drink then slowly add meal choices . He was always there emergency needed by never overly present . Made great recommendations. Made our first date a resounding success. Ps we have already had more .

The service was AMAZING! We had so many different preferences in our party, but the same desire to have an amazing meal. You did not disappoint. The service and patience was amazing. This is our favorite sushi restaurant in all of Charlottesville. Having been to Japan on several occasions this is where we come to when we’re home. The more gluten-free options you have available, the better. I understand that doesn’t always mesh with culinary priorities, but it is such a bonus.
