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.

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.

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!

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
