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 arrived and were seated immediately. Our waiter was prompt and i explained that this was our 26 Wedding Anniversary. He offered a cocktail on the house for the celebration! I had requested my wife's favorite sashimi ( UNI). The waiter made sure that there was some remaining for her desert! It was delicious The food was very good except that the Lobster tempura was very overcooked. We enjoyed our celebration. Thank You 10!!!

    outstanding service by the entire crew. great menu with many creative dishes, many of which I had not seen at other sushi restaurants. Walking up the stairs to the dining area was a challenge. And $15 for an imported beer, recommended by the bartender, seemed excessive as the same beer is $10 across the street at Hamilton's. Overall, a good dining experience and we will return.

    Dinner at Ten is always superlative - I wanted to specifically call out Christian's outstanding service. We don't see folks like this often enough: he seemed to have a sixth sense for when to stop by the table, and was unfailingly polite and helpful. The entire staff at Ten is excellent, and we are happy that Christian has been added; we intend to ask for one of his tables in the future!

    Ashleen was our server and she was fantastic. She said it was her first night and she was being trained, but it seemed to us that she had been working there awhile! She was knowledgeable and confident, but calm and relaxed. I took my partner there for her birthday & it was very romantic. Will definitely be back. Food was amazing, we ate every bit!

    Food is excellent. One of our favorite places. Service was a little off this visit, we all didn’t get silverware and had to wait. Our server also didn’t come back for awhile and check on drink, but it is a lovely spot and the food was perfect. Highly recommend!

    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.
