What do you feel like tonight??.
My wife and I have been LOYAL customers for the past 5yrs. and no matter the day we go we are guaranteed to receive great service and great sushi. When you are there, ask to sit at the sushi bar with KEN and he will make sure to give you all the attention and TLC when it comes to making you sushi. Something is said when you taste a dish immediately after it was made with pride and especially for you.
As far as management, BRIAN has always made sure we are happy each and every time we are there. Our dining experience has been coupled with great sushi and a great ambiance. Moreover, the management to support has not failed us to date.
So whether you want great sushi, want a drink with friends or even dance the night away at their club, BRIAN makes sure you get all three experiences better than any other local venue in OC.
Live Life and Enjoy Eating, Drinking and Dancing at TEN!!
cool environment. i like the atmostphere here. it's chill. i'm allergic to sushi so i was watching my friends eat haha, but it was a cool lounge. i like restaurants with the lounge-ish type environment. i went to gyenari and that's a chill place also with a lounge-type environment and a dj on the weekend
A GREAT TIME FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION; EVEN IF IT HAPPENS TO FALL ON A MONDAY. I made reservations for my female friend's Birthday. Our server was Val and she made sure my friend had a GREAT Birthday night out and on a Monday night at that!!! The sushi was fresh and the sparkling cold sake was new for me and was EXCELLENT. The dessert provided specifically for her Birthday was PERFECT; my lady friend made sure I knew how mouth watering it was with every bite. This is my first review and the way Val and the team at 10 Asian Bistro made my friend feel on her Birthday--I had to let everyone know how great it was!!! I'm back and forth from Atlanta and Florida, but whenever I'm in The OC I will definitely be dining there!!! Thanks Val for taking care of us sooo well.
Worst Experience Ever!!!. Worst Experience Ever!! Have been there many times in the past and have enjoyed the meal. This time was rather different. The first time the waitress brought us the wrong order. On the second round, she still got half the order wrong. After we told her to cancel the order, she stated that it was ready and not to "worry about it." We thought she would have comped that part of the meal, since everyone else's was cold at that point, but were wrong. We received the bill and she charged us for the full meal plus items that we never ordered. Called the manager over to review the bill and discuss our dissappointment. He also said he "took care" of it and deducted the food that we never ate. My wife was so disgusted that she spoke to the manager and he said there was nothing else he could do and gave her his business card. I would expect a lot more from a restaurant like this. I could not believe the service nor the management who failed to take care of their customers. Appalling service!!!!!!!!
Good food, disorganized management. We planned a big night out and there were aprx. 10 of us. We made the reservations a couple of days in advance. We showed up at the door only to be told they were closed for a private party..they said they called us but we checked our messages and missed calls but there were no calls. They obviously dumped their regular customers for an opportunity to make money for that night. I loved going here and went here often. Dont think I will be returning anytime soon due to this night and the way they handled the whole thing. A simple call (actual call not the one they made up when were there) would have been good. We went to the club which I'm sorry to say was fun but is now played out. The bouncers are so cool and nice but the crowd is very strange..drinks are terrible too. Dont think we will be returning.
Went on a Sunday night, seating immediately
Would def recommend
Hip restaurant, good food, great ambiance.. TEN was a great experience. Our hostess was quite nice, and our waitress was wonderful. A lot of sushi places tend to overseason their sashimi & rolls, but I found that there was a delicate balance to its plates. The carpaccio used the olive oil & balsalmic/soy accented the halibut & salmon to make it a smooth, even texture. The sauces were not overpowering at all-even in the volcano roll. In addition, the sushi rice was marinated, which makes a huge difference in rolls. Not everyone is aware that rolls are only as good as the rice. I have been to the club several times, but this was my first experience with the restaurant. What a pleasant surprise that the restuarant lives up to its decor & hype! Good times. Additional Bonus: People watching is interesting & fun!
Great food - pretentious folks.... We walked in and were seated right away (we had reservations but the hostess still told us to wait while she saw "what she had available") we were greeted by a nice waitress and had our drink order taken. The food was good, not the BEST but good nonetheless, the edamame was cold and they don't have low sodium soy sauce. The waitress didn't check back - she was too busy gawking over some millionaire who stepped out of a ferrari enzo at the next table. We asked to see a bar host so we could get VIP Bottle service next door. She came over - not very polite (see my review of Tentation). Overall not a GREAT experience but not a bad one either. So-so, the people acted like they were all hollywood rockstars - but I guess that's to be expected for the area. Go with a date or a group, but don't expect anything special.
If the service were better this place would be great!.
This is an email that I sent to the manager of TEN today.
We arrived at about 6pm, really excited and happy to send our friend off with a nice going away celebration. The smiles quickly vanished when we had to deal with an unhappy hostess. The bar area was full, so we asked to be seated in the dining area. The hostess made quite a few comments in regards to the rules of sitting in the dining area and stated twice that we could not have happy hour in the dining area. She said that if we sat there we would have to order full meals, which was fine, but her attitude was very less than cordial. Money was not an issue, so it was quite rude of her to assume we were not expecting to spend money. She also mentioned that we should have made reservations, but that they would seat us anyways and then again said we should have made reservations. We were thinking what the heck; does she want us to leave??? We decided to stay anyway because others were going to meet us there.
Ten is down the street from our office and we often have a few drinks and appetizers after work and have really grown quite fond of the place, but last night was less than desirable service.
They put three tables together near the long couch and we commented that we might have a few more people join us; the hostess immediately responded that it was unlikely that we could get another. The restaurant area was completely empty with the exception of a couple of tables, so the comment seemed unnecessary. The CEO of our company was with us, and it was embarrassing to have her go through that experience. After being seated she stayed 15 min and left, she was disappointed. We on the other hand stayed and had a good time. The upside of the evening was that out waitress Jamie was EXCELLENT?EXCELLENT. Quite honestly, she is one of the best servers I have ever had.
Best Dining in Newport!!. I LOVED this restaurant! I read the other reviews, and I think that now 2007 (the bad reviews written in 2005) are completely wrong. Right when I walked in i was greeted by a smile and I did arrive early for my reservation, which they had, my husband and I went to the bar for pre dinner cocktails which were served by the friendliest bartender. I did over hear one party giving the hostess trouble because they had 15ppl and she wouldn't seat them because only 3 of the 15 were there, but seriously, what nice restaurant lets 3 people sit at a table for 15. I couldn't help but laugh when later I saw the same people with i think only 6 people in all. Don't be quick to judge the hostess, they have it pretty rough! When we sat for dinner we had an excellent server, who yes was busy, but did cater to us as best as he could. The atmosphere was outstanding and the food was great! I HIGHLY recommend a dining expierence here!
