Very friendly and helpful service on a busy Saturday evening. We got a table for two without having booked and were served fairly promptly. The wine choice was good, by the glass and the bottle. We had the house red which was great. We shared two platters (the cheese and the charcuterie) and two other starter dishes of padrón peppers... More

I'm a little wine-oriented when it comes to dining, so I love the model (only ten cases of any one wine ordered in) and was not disappointed with any of the three wines I tried over the course of the meal. I'm even happier to see German and Austrian reds on the menu. I'm not so much a fan of... More

Fabulous fresh, home cooked food with an excellent wine list. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had the lovely beef rib, croquettes, cheese and meat plates. All highly recommended. Beware of a window table on a warm night as the staff don't police the outside table smoking and it's a bit off putting

Should you find yourself in the Old Covent Garden area of London and particularly in Endell Street, WC2 - do not pass up the opportunity to visit the Ten Cases. Interestingly it is named thus because they only ever buy 10 cases of any particular wine- that way the wine list remains 'fresh' & interesting regardless of how often you... More

A very unassuming restaurant of informal casual style and great staff. Really my style. The wine is superb and the food equally as good. I recommend the lamb sharing platter-delucious. A great birthday treat for my husband.

Service was very good. Menu quite limited and expensive, although food was excellent. My gamay wine was only just ok. Don't think I will return - so many other places to go to in this area.

Our office's team day dinner was at Ten Cases and it was wonderful. We had the private dining room (10 of us) downstairs. The food and the wine were fantastic. It was my first visit and it is a place where my wife and I will surely visit again and again in the future.

We came here with friends for good wine and food. Were not disappointed. Six of us in a little bistro and they coped very well. Waitress knew her wine. Great selection even if biased to France! We had American( white) and New Zealand (red). Had charcuterie to share whilst we chatted and ordered. At £12 it was enough for a... More

Didn't have a meal here, but just an extended apéritif that ended up costing as much as a meal should cost. Nothing special, just hype, and not much in the plates. Would definitely NOT go back...
