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.


TEN approaches traditional Japanese dishes as if they were works of modern art. 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.


Ten also features an extensive wine list, and specialty cocktails using unique ingredients such as the "Ten" which is comprised of sake, vodka and aloe juice.

Great food, service and attention to detail. When I asked the bartender to make me a cocktail that wasn’t listed on their menu and then described my tastes he hit the ball out of the park!! The white Negroni was perfect and went really well with the food! Thanks “Calvin” for listening to me and making my birthday extra special! I hope to come back soon for another!

It was our first time going. And we absolutely love sushi . Everything was so good from the food to the drinks we almost couldn’t stop ordering. Our server was very informative of the menu and everything came within reasonable timing. Will definitely be going back. SHOUT OUT TO JACK L. Our server thank you!

Our food and service were awesome, I have been to ten on several occasions and it never disappoints. I was however disappointed in our seating, it was my daughter's 18th birthday and I had hoped to sit in the dining area near the bar. Instead we were seated on the otherside and I had to look at the take out kitchen. The hostess did make the effort to try and have us relocated. I was super disappointed. The food was awesome.

Took one star off ambience because it is somewhat cold inside the restaurant, but everything else was perfect as usual. I strongly recommend the seaweed salad and Japanese Waygu beef roll!

We love Ten. It's very dependable and we really like the food, atmosphere and the service. We go regularly and will continue to go. I was happy to see the addition of some specials as they have had a pretty consistent menu for quite a while.

Excellent meal and service - as always. One of the top 3 restaurants in Charlottesville. the Lobster Tempura is to die for, and the sushi is the highest grade available anywhere. Setting is special as well :-)

Being in the restaurant industry, it’s hard for us to find places that not only have excellent food but good service. Ten hits the mark on this and is always our go to when we are in Charlottesville. Thank you all for everything you do!!

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.
