We booked a table in the pub for 7:15 on Saturday night, with a specific request for a booth. They called a couple days to ask us to change it to 7:30. We arrived on time and were sent for a 10 minute walk while the table remained occupied. At 8 PM we were still standing in the noisy lobby waiting No offers of a compensatory beverage, no efforts to find a solution, no actual apologies, no NOTHING. At 8 PM in Newburyport, we were not about to go looking for someplace with an hour long wait. We left and went to American BBQ in Rowley. Not the romantic dinner we had planned but the service was immediate, the food was good and they seemed to value us as customers.
LAME, LAME . LAME.

Used to love this place. Atmosphere is nice but new menu leaves much to be desired. Service was a bit slow even though it was not very busy. Ordered the swordfish which was lacking in taste, accompaniments were good. The rest of my party had similar complaints. Drinks are on the small side but the prices are not. Looks like I'll be on a search for my new favorite restaurant in Nbpt.

Service is terrible. We never saw our waiter and had to physically approach the bar every time we needed something. At $110 for 2 people the service should be better . The food is plain Jane and mediocre at best. Its overpriced. Skip this place and eat somewhere else.

Have been to 10 Center many times over the years, and lately it has become more interesting, better looking and great food. The service has always been a strength and remains so, but the menu is stronger than it was and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The outdoor patio is a bonus, too on a summer night.

We brought friends here on a Friday night expecting an outstanding experience, and it was not. Service was desultory, and the food not as good as the last time we were there. The mixed green salad was soggy and tasteless, dressed with small crumbs of blue cheese. The four seared scallops, served in clam shells and scant accompanying vegetables were not worth the $27 price tag. Lobster risotto was heavy and pasty. We have eaten these same menu items at Ten Center before, this time it did not measure up.
