TEN at the Eldridge Ratings and Reviews
First, I'll start with the outstanding s ...
First, I'll start with the outstanding service. Our server was personable and knowledgable about the menu, the restaurant week specials, and about the area. He was also delightfully honest about not being a drinker but still being helpful when choosing a bottle of wine. He was able to converse on a variety of subjects, and maintained bright and engaged throughout the experience.
The food selections on the menu gave a good choice of dietary options, and portions were a good size. We shared an appetizer and dessert, while choosing our own main dishes. We were pleasantly satisfied without being hungry or overly stuffed from the meal.
Great wine selection even though the restaurant denoted pairing down their wine list.
We have had excellent past brunch experi ...
We have had excellent past brunch experiences here; however this last Sunday was most disappointing. The food needed to be refreshed = so consequently there were several things that they were out of entirely. The chef never offered to make us a special omelet (was actually not even in the station when we went back) and there was no prime rib, and it was never refreshed. It was most disappointing, and we paid to sit next to the loudest patrons in the place. We are really going to have to think long and hard about going back. Was very disappointing, and no apology from the waiter, who was mostly absent.

The Sunday we went to brunch the restaurant was crowded as they lost a room to a wedding, thus it was probably noisier than usual. The food is very good, attractively served, but nothing outstanding. The chicken was tender, the roast beef tough, the fruit was fresh and flavorful., the roast broccoli done well but a little salty. There was a change in elevation between the dining and food serving rooms which our table was near. Several people tripped - I was waiting for someone to fall. Jackie was an excellent server, very alert to our needs.

Great food and service. We were there for an early dinner so I'm not sure the servers were quite ready for us but once we got in the swing of things, everything was great! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. The starter salads were huge too!

I was not pleased with the meal. It took awhile to get our cocktails. I ordered tbe shrimp scampi and not only did it come out cold but my daughter said that the same dish at Olive Garden is better. That should sum it up.

We had the fish special which was Cod with a Brussels sprouts sauce on it. Perhaps one of the finest meals we have ever had. I called ahead and someone was so kind to tell me what the special was that night. Just wish they had that meal more often. Specials are almost always excellent. Most of the regular menu items are great too. Would prefer more of a rotational menu.
We had a mixed experience. We had the Sunday Brunch at the earliest posted time (10:30am). Clearly the food had been out quite a while before we arrived. My husband had a great experience with a hot and delicious custom-made omelet and pancakes. I went for the steam tables, and found most of the food to be good, but must comment on the breakfast potatoes which had been sitting so long in the steam table that they were dried-out, hard and barely edible, not to mention no longer hot. The fish was also under heated, but tender and still delicious. The pork was fantastic. But the biggest disappointment (besides the potatoes) was the fresh fruit plate. The pineapple was very unappetizing, having been cut with many bruises and over-ripe spots showing. I love pineapple but couldn't get myself to take any. There were only two strawberries left. The melon was fine, however. We like Ten, and the service was great, but this time the food was pretty spotty.

Overall, we enjoyed the meal. The food was well prepared (except for the rib eye which was ordered medium rare and was served very, very rare). The scallops
we done to perfection. Of the 5 people in attendance, 4 were very pleased with their meal. Service was attentive and not overbearing.

I have dined here regularly over the past few years but this was such a disappointment that this may have been my last time. Prices had just been increased - some astronomically - and the food was either mediocre or inedible. Unless they make some serious changes in the kitchen I won't be dining here again.
Great atmosphere at historic hotel
We were in Lawrence visiting family and chose 10 at the Eldridge hotel for a Sunday dinner. The beer list and drinks were very good and the wine list was very extensive and not overpriced. The food was extremely good, fresh and lively. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and professional. Would definitely go again.
We always like the fish specials at Ten.
We had the California Halibut with Rice and tomato jam. It was excellent. We had crab cakes for an appetizer and Blueberry pie with ice cream for desert.
Our waiter Damian is superb as we have been served by him many times. My only suggestion is to offer more specials. The regular menu is boring compared to the specials. Post what's for dinner everyday and you'll get more business.
The soup and caesar salad were served close to the same temperature. The salad looked and tasted as if made from a bagged caesar salad kit. Dinner rolls (which we had to request) were Sister Schubert's. Asparagus accompanying entrees was mushy. Waiter never refilled wine glasses. Waited a long time for entrees to be served. The creme brulee had the taste and consistency of instant pudding. We had to shout to hear each other. Despite the salmon having good flavor, a very disappointing birthday dinner. Will not return.
Great addition to downtown Lawrence
I love this place. Great food, great service. At our most recent visit, one of the entrees we ordered got overdone, so the chef held it back, redid it, and gave it to us free, even though I said it was not necessary. The pig wings are different, and worth an order for the table.
Valentines Day Menu
The reservation was not needed which was perfectly fine. There was a Valentines Day only menu (I was semi disappointed). We ordered an appetizer that was not put in on the order. Then we proceeded to order crab legs & the king size prime rib. The crab legs were fine. The prime rib was ordered Rare to Medium Rare, it came out well done. It was very tough and "work" to eat. I expected the restaurant to be equivalent to the KC Metro Area, WRONG!!
Its dope. Good times and good vibes. Tremendously attentive, yet neither annoying and adequately polite is how I would describe the service. The dishes were eloquently presented and the taste of my Pasta a la Vodka was a truly amazing. Lets work together to put an end to President Obama's "War on Jobs" and elect a president that will stand up for America's blue-collar working class folk. Nonetheless, I recommend TEN at the Eldridge to anyone looking for a fine dining experience on Massachusetts Street. 5 Stars!!
Jayhawker Bar great, Ten nice but mixed on food
Jayhawker Bar was great, good drink selection, very vibrant, food was good. We had dinner one night at the TEN restaurant. Ambiance was great, we had a booth looking outside which was great. Wine list was also very good. Our food experience was mixed, we had to send back one of the entrees and have it taken off our bill. I would be hard pressed to recommend for that reason.
This was a very nice and upscale restaurant right on the main strip in downtown Manhattan. This is primarily for a nice dinner out versus most of the lower scale restaurants on this main drag. We were pleasantly surprised by the 25% off on Wednesday for all wines.

The food was great. Enjoyed it but it was so loud when the dining room was full & busy. We didn't expect that. The waiter, however, was very accommodating and cordial-letting stay and chat all evening w/out interrupting us. We were the last to leave. Great place-we'll be back.
I made a reservation for two and requested a table by the windows so we could see the Christmas lights and the people walking by. I wasn't disappointed. Service Friday night was rather slow, but the food was fantastic. We had shrimp scampi and top sirloin...both were exceptional. We also had a shrimp appetizer that was fantastic. All-in-all a great place to eat!
TEN did a fine job on the annual Thanksgiving buffet - a challenging task. There were 4 choices of meat - top round sliced, ham, turkey & trout. The potatoes with garlic and the stuffing were very good, too. The food was plentiful, at the correct temperature, and promptly restocked as quantity dwindled. Also on the menu - breads, salads, shrimp and ample desserts. Buffets for signature events are tough for restaurants to execute well. TEN did it. I look forward to returning to try their regular menu.
We happened to mention in our reservation that we were celebrating our 41st anniversary. The staff at the Eldridge could not have done more to have made it a more memorable evening. The food was delicious. We were not at all rushed. They even decorated our dessert plates to celebrate the evening. Very thoughtful!
Buffet vs. menu
We went there for lunch after church and wished to order off the menu instead of the buffet. Since we had to wait until 2 p.m. before we could order, we elected to dine elsewhere. We've been here numerous times for the buffet and it has always been good. My food rating is based on past history. Our waitress was very accommodating to us in explaining the buffet/menu policy.
