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.

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.

This place felt like a hidden gem. The door entrance was next to a bigger restaurant. Through the door you walk up to the restaurant on the second floor and the ambience was amazing, very modern chic, clean and welcoming. We had excellent service. The waiter really knew his was around the menu. The food was excellent and the price was expected for a modern sushi restaurant. I was amazed to find something like this in Charlottesville considering I'm from Virginia Beach. Would definitely be returning.

Between finishing our last dish and the waiter coming back to us, the time was at least 15 minutes. We love this place but the service was a bit shoddy this time around.

We had such a great time with fantastic food and drink. The food was so unique and delicious. Wonderful and creative presentation. We are addicted to the Sunomono, all the tempura dishes, the gyoza, and well, pretty much everything on the menu. The servers were very helpful and friendly. We appreciated all the hard work they put into keeping the restaurant and us Covid free. We will be back soon!!

Our server was the sweetest. Food was on par with LA & NYC. Lovely ambience. My only critical feedback would be to get the back area seating on par with the rest of the restaurant— it’s just not appealing. We asked to be moved to a booth.

While lighting works perfectly at night when the spot becomes more of a night club, during the day with those big windows it can however sometimes make visibility an issue, I'd advise developing a different lighting concept centered around the tables that maybe changes after sundown. Aside from that, I don't think I have any notes.

My Grandfamily and I eat dinner at Ten every year to celebrate my Grandaughter's birthday and every year we are not surprised to fully enjoy the experience. This year was her 21st birthday so it was special and Ten did not fail to impress. The food was uniformly delicious, some of it was unusual (to me), the service was attentive but not intrusive and the noise level was low enough that we were able to talk together easily at a normal volume. In short, everything was perfect. We will go again next year.

The food is exquisite...every bite special.! We particularly enjoyed the starters and would likely go back and just order a bunch of those! For those who have difficulty with steps, the restaurant is up a flight without an elevator so worth knowing when you book. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and our waiter was excellent!
