“Pleasant, hotel fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

This is a nice, hotel, fine dining restaurant. I had a butternut squash soup, which was nice but lukewarm, and the trout, smothered with shiitake mushrooms and some bacon bits. It was perfectly pleasant, but the trout was so buried in the mushrooms and bacon bits that it was hard to enjoy it as trout. I would call this "trying too hard". A simpler presentation would perhaps have made the trout more enjoyable. But it was pleasant, and more than I expected for a hotel restaurant in Billings.
Service was cordial and ambiance was nice.

“Teetering”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

We eat here frequently. Tonight has been off on every level. Until chef/menu changes might only do drinks and aps here. Sad night at TEN, but know they can make it work.

We are very saddened by your experience at TEN. Our restaurant has been listening to the reviews and we are excited to announce a new executive chef as well as an extensive menu overhaul, to ensure that our customers have more variety. This includes more vegetarian options, higher quality meat and the freshest seafood available! To complete our overhaul, we have put in place a better training program for our servers to guarantee not only a four star menu, but four star service as well. We would love to invite you back to TEN. Please contact Management to make reservations. Thank you and hope to see you soon!!

“Better than the typical hotel food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We enjoyed a business dinner at TEN with a large group of about 20 people. The service was excellent, and the food very good. The food combinations, for example the Brussels Sprout appetizer with a cream sauce, bacon bits, and an egg sunny side up, were very tasty and a bit of a surprise.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We ate here while treating ourselves to a weekend night stay at the Northern (voucher included in the package). Service and ambiance was exceptional. Food was interesting with an emphasis on steaks.

“Still a work in progress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We were really hoping that the Ten was ready for prime time. They fell well short. They were out of two entre' items at 5:30. The menu is very limited, so how can you not have enough food to complete the menu. The staff needs way more training. No one took our drink order for at least 10 minutes after we got there. A grey haired dude was bussing tables in levis and a wrinkled shirt. The local beef short ribs were inedible, and the glob of ooey polenta and gooey spinach was unfit for a so-called fancy restaurant. After our meal was finished had to wait 10 minutes for bill. I know they are trying to get better, but maybe the management should have dinner at Walkers and take a lot of notes on how to run a first class joint. The hostess needs to be in front by bar not around the corner. They will need to revamp the whole operation before we go back for another try. Simple food done well, is better than fancy food done poorly. For the prices the Ten is charging, they have to step up their game by an exponent of 10.
