We had a great date night at Ten! Some of the best sushi I've ever had. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful too.
Everything was great but the wagyu trio skewers - not even close to real wagyu. Nice sauces but much too chewy to pass as wagyu.
The food was fine, but a bit expensive for what we got. We were also brought the wrong food twice, as were the people sitting next to us.
As usual fantastic food. Seemed like they were a hit short staffed-waitress was busy and not very attentive. Thankfully food was up to par!
Waitress was extremely inattentive, slow service, she could not answer any questions about the menu and was reluctant to give recommendations. She was just friendly to the point of actually being rude. Food was subpar, not impressed with rolls rolled sloppy, food served cold. Extremely disappointed. We brought guests here to entertain and were embarrassed.
Great dining there as always! Our server, Hannah, was delightful as well!
Loved it. Sat at the alcohol bar.
Great place to celebrate my birthday!
Great Japanese, enjoyed our evening!
So good, as always! My friends and I have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. The food is amazing, the cocktails are unique and delicious, and the service is always great. Highly recommend, definitely one of our favorites.
Ten is at the top of our favorites! It is ALWAYS fabulous!!
For high-end sushi, Ten remains the best option in Charlottesville.
Three of us enjoyed the food very much. The Ten Martini was surprising very sweet; not enjoyable. Recommend ordering a number of small plates and sharing among the group.
Fantastic experience with truly exceptional service. The spicy toro roll is a particularly fantastic treat on the menu along with the miso soup, pork goyza, and seaweed salad!
The best sushi I have ever had
Great service and incredible ambiance. Highly recommend!
The atmosphere and food were amazing. Top quality sushi. Service was great but a little rushed. Can’t wait to come back again on our next trip to Cville.
It was awesome
So delicious will definitely be returning! Such a great experience
Food speaks for itself. Your own fault if you pass this one up.
Loved the food!! Definitely try the lobster tempura if you visit. My only complaint is that I wasn't a huge fan of the cocktails my boyfriend and I got. Definitely intend to visit again!
Melissa provided excellent service and was so pleasant in working with us. The food was exceptional in taste and presentation. We will come back to Charlottesville just to eat here again!
Lobster tempura was amazing. Sushi delicious and fresh! Music was loud and hard to hear servers with masks.
Keep up the good fresh sushi!!
Love everything about Ten EXCEPT the lighting. Our booth was too dark to see the food, let alone the menu. Which is a shame, because the sushi rolls are works of art that deserve to be appreciated.
I’ve been coming here for the past few years, and it is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Charlottesville.
Great food great atmosphere - enough space to be far enough from all other tables - the table settings is tricky for the staff to set and clean so your participation is required but the quality of the food and the elegant setting make up for it. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience (family of 5 from 9 to 47yo)
We dined here for the first time yesterday and had a very wonderful experience. Our server Landon was on top of everything, super helpful with suggestions, and very personable.
Jack is the best bartender in Charlottesville! Always so helpful and knowledgeable. Did a great job with his sake recommendations! Landon did a great job with our service. The food is terrific!
Everything was great, sushi was amazing.
Ten is consistently excellent and their sushi is beautiful as well as delicious!
Great food and service
My complaint was the speed at which our food came out to our table. It was ready at the same time as our first cocktail which was too rapid a pace So we were basically finished eating within about 35 minutes total… I know they want to turn the tables but they could slow that down quite a bit.
Fantastic food, excellent service and very patient server with our dietary questions. Can’t wait to go back!
Great Romantic dinner spot. Great suggestions by our server, just the right amount of attention paid without unduly interrupting our evening. Great heads up on getting the dessert order in early to make sure we got what we wanted.
Ten is the place to go if you want everything to be just so. It's not cheap. But it's perfect.
If you don't have interesting friends to go with, go by yourself. You will be glad you did.
Fantastic level of service, the waitress visited us with the perfect amount of frequency. Their drink selection was outstanding, and the quality of the fish was so fresh and so beautifully varied it was the most refreshing experience of sushi I’ve had in a very long time.
This is the best sushi we ever had! Everything we ate was amazing, which also included the lobster tempura. As visitors to Charlottesville, if we ever come back, we would eat here again!
Bad table service
This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville - the staff is knowledgeable and can make educated recommendations about what to order and they make every experience special.
Beautiful place, great service, and decent food. The sea bass starter and the rainbow roll were amazing. We ordered a couple of other sushi rolls that weren't great. For instance, the spicy honey tuna roll had absolutely no sweetness and, along with the hotate roll, was absolutely drenched in sriracha. The server was even surprised. What's the point in having excellent, fresh fish if the flavors and use of spice isn't balanced? I would certainly return to dine, but I would focus more on traditional sushi and sashimi.
