Ten is a modern Japanese tapas style restaurant, centrally located on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall.

Since 2006, Ten has served a variety of both traditional and original cuisine.

Chef Pei Jen Chang sources ingredients from the finest local, regional, and international sea and farm purveyors, and strives to offer fare that will appeal to the gamut of culinary palates.

Our bar menu boasts an extensive wine list, an assortment of imported and local craft beers, as well as one of the largest collections of sake in Virginia. In addition, we offer a unique selection of libations, such as hand-crafted Asian inspired cocktails, assembled using inventive, authentic ingredients, or a 'Sake Flight', which allows for the subtle, intricate flavors of three selected varietals to be experienced.

The meaning of the Japanese word 'Ten' is 'heaven' or 'celebration', and our highest goal is to create an elevated, adventurous, and intimate dining experie

    We could not have asked for a better evening at ten. Our server jack elevated the dining experience to a new level. He was so knowledgeable, helpful and patient with our questions. Every dish was top notch - by far the best meal I’ve had in recent memory. Highly, highly recommend dining here!

    Always a great experience. One negative is that it is way too dark to even see the menus. Maybe a bit more light above or on the tables but the food and service is always great.

    The restaurant is upscale with a pricy tag, but the ambience and tasteful fresh sushi completely make up for it. There are not many restaurants with Ten's atmosphere in town, so it's definitely worth the money if you plan a special evening.

    A bit over-priced for the food but I may still return because it is possibly the best Sushi in town. The light was dim, had to use an iPhone flashlight to read the menu. Overdoing the ambiance has a counter effect on the business model.

    We had reservations at 5:15 and it took quite a while to get our drink. We ordered anappetizer to have with our drink and then Soup afterwards, but they all came at same time which was awkward. We had 2 chef specials and they were VG but the sea bass broth and veggies were virtually tasteless. The seabass itself was delicious. We had 2 rolls . The Hotate was tasteless and disappointing. The tiger roll o was delicious, but not really different or unique from other sushi bars. So for the price, it was not of value. My Manhattan was a surprising $19. That is very steep even for a fine dining restaurant. Our first visit the food was outstanding. This visit was sadly a disappointment.

    We loved going back to TEN with our sushivores and skeptics. The skeptics were very happy with the chicken yakitori skewers, gyoza, and their tentative bites of the crab roll turned to true enjoyment. The sushivores amongst us were happy happy happy! The fresh uni special was especially delightful!

    The restaurant was ok, but the historic mall has really deteriorated in the same way New York City did in the 1970s and San Francisco has in recent years. Charlottesville government seems to be run by short sighted, narrow minded idiots.
