We had our anniversary dinner here and had a blast. The food was very good, well prepared with layered flavors well-executed. I wouldn't say it was outstandingly creative, but it falls firmly into the top tiers of the realm of contemporary chef-led food in a fine dining atmosphere. The wait staff... read more

5/10 is a must for anyone traveling to Athens! Do not miss out! From the extensive drink menu to the eclectic appetizers and succulent oysters to the mains and desserts...there is something delicious for every palate!

We dined at Five and Ten for a fixed price three course dinner to celebrate a birthday. It was our first visit to the new location. The service was excellent as always, the selection of menu pairings for the dinner were very appealing, and the ambiance of the new location were just fine! The food was exceptional, and it was...

Lovely renovated old home. Very limited menu as expected. The food and service were not as expected. Atlanta Magazine raves about the 5&10 and says it is worth the trip. Not so for us from Marietta.It was not busy and had more than enough servers. The servers seemed either uninterested in the job or perhaps preoccupied. It took quite a... More

Five and Ten is the best restaurant in Athens, at least among the various restaurants I have tried on my two visits. The service is excellent (we were a party of 10), the menu, while not overly large, has something for everyone and the food is well prepared. The kale cesear salad was well prepared and dressed, the short ribs... More

Happened on this quaint gem in a large old home on Milledge on a rainy Friday night. The various rooms each with a half dozen tables or so made for a comfortable mix. Our service by John was terrific, showing the right blend of enthusiasm, knowledge and attentiveness. The best thing was the dishes that made a great use of... More

When we first moved to the Athens, GA area, this restaurant was an amazingly special place: local products, super fresh, creative, upscale cuisine. It was our go-to restaurant to impress our visiting friends and family. The new location is lovely, although if you are seated near the bar, it is quite noisy -not because of a rowdy crowd - just...

I was at the opening of Five and Ten back in Five Points and have seen the evolution of this chef and restaurant from the beginning. First, the food is creative and always well executed. The service is definitely the best in Athens. The new location is also wonderful. But having a destination restaurant has its drawbacks. 5&10 was a... More

Originally I wondered if this place got by on the hype of TV reality stardom but we have been a number of times and have not been disappointed.
