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

    Good Sushi/Sashimi place compared to other places in Charlottesville. Service may depend on who is serving your table, but based on my experience today, they leave you alone until you ask for something. So if you are expecting an upscale restaurant service because of the price tags on the dishes, this may not be your place. Foods are served very quickly so dont order everything at once.

    Your experience at ten will dramatically differ depending on who your waiter is. In our case, the second time we went, we ordered the 20 piece Omakase and was delivered a nonchalant flop of a dish, an uneasily memorized listing of fish (without pointing to which is which), and a 200+$ bill. Compared to the first time we went where Joe was taking us through the whole experience, made wine pairings, and delicately ordered the fish -- makes it that much harder to want to come back.

    Delicious sushi and tempura. The rock shrimp tempura was wonderful, the avocado was only ok - maybe just not our thing. Poke bowl was very good also - delicious tuna. Extremely fresh fish. The cocktails are fabulous and inventive. Cool vibe and atmosphere. The booths are spacious and comfortable. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about Japanese culture and cuisine.

    Sasha was our server. She gave us outstanding service and recommended a great bottle of wine. The food was scrumptious. The presentation was beautiful. The ambiance was magical. We had a wonderful time. I also had the best Manhattan I have ever tasted, not the one with Saki in it, but with Woodford Reserve. It was yummy.

    Food was great, as always, but realized that vegetarians don't have a lot of choices. (Didn't there used to be vegetable tempura as opposed to only avocado tempura?) For the rest of us -- fun to share a nice variety of different types and styles of food.

    Horrific! Never acknowledged my partner’s birthday. Waited over half an hour for a drink. Bungled our wine. Courses served in the reverse order we requested. One course forgotten entirely. When asked for dessert, said “no”…on a birthday. I’ve dined here many times—not sure what’s happened to this place. Waiting for management to respond to my email…wonder if they will? Avoid at all costs.

We left you a voicemail and will try again tomorrow as well. We hope that you would be amenable to allowing us the opportunity to make this right for you. Sincerely, The Team at Ten

    Food was great! Unfortunately, service was not. We ordered cocktails and then a bit later we ordered an appetizer. The app came before the drinks. Then we ordered a bottle of bubbly and our main dinner orders. We got the dinners and were nearly done eating and still did not have the bubbly. We eventually just canceled that. Our waiter didn't really come around much. We had to ask for someone to get him so we could order the bottle in the first place.

    The sushi and sashimi were both outstanding, if a little pricey. Our server was fabulous and very accommodating of our needs. The restaurant was dark, making it difficult to read the menu without aid of a cell phone light. We were a little pressed for time (our fault, not Ten’s) and look forward to returning to enjoy the experience more.
