“Great Service”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

We went to Ten expecting another traditional Japanese meal. From looking at the outside of the building, that would be par for the course. We entered to find a hip, modern, and beautiful space. From the lighting, to the full wall water feature behind the bar to the polished concrete/inlaid wood floor, this place was awesome. They deserve an award on decor alone.
The server was attentive and in a great mood. He gave us plenty of time to peruse the menu and offered suggestions. The upbeat attitude and music was a nice surprise.
The food was good. We started with an appetizer called Asian Nachos. They were a little spicy, but great. We both went for a traditional bento box and as side of sushi rolls. There was plenty to take home for the next day.
The restaurant also offers a full page of the menu that focuses on Chinese dishes.
The best surprise was the pricing. It was a bargin. I highly recommend this for anyone that is looking for a great night out.

“Good menu selection and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 13, 2011

We missed the 4-7pm daily happy hour (Monday-Thursday) where you can get discounted drinks and sushi. There's also a $19.95 all you can eat (select) sushi during the same time. The atmosphere was trendy and upbeat with a bar, sushi bar, lounge and main restaurant. The waitress wasn't really attentive, but the food was good. I had two small plate dishes and my friend had a sushi roll and Sesame chicken.

“Food reminded me of Pick up Stix...”
Reviewed December 16, 2008

Food came out way too late so they got a little backed up ( tryed to rush us by stairing and pointing) rice was undercooked and the service was terrible our waiter messed almost everyones order wrong one way or another. The only cool thing is the actual restruants cosmetics. They also have a club that is atached that they really try to upsell to their larger group customers. I think it was 75% persian people on the Friday that I went to so defintly check to make sure it's not ethic night first! I have persian blood and it was way too greaseball for me! Overall waist of our time.

Reviewed September 12, 2008

Nice decor, with it's dark mood and changing lighting; there is a section above the main dining area that has lights that change color. Very open. Small sushi bar and outside seating as well as claustrophobic overflow seating. The bar looked nice. The sushi was good, with one or two incrediable dishes, like the peppercorn encrusted Mahi Mahi, although one of the salmon dishes we got wasn't as fresh as it could have been, the rest was dynamite.
