TEN at the Eldridge Ratings and Reviews
We had a late seating and our order got messed up. The waitress was very rude about it! I'm guessing she wanted to go home. They shouldn't have a 9 pm seating if they don't want to serve you.
Later another male server came and boxed up our food and was much nicer. Hostess also nice. Just had unhappy waitress!
We did not have a great experience. We waited a long time for a server to take our order. My husband got the Osso Bucco and it was cold, as were the mashed potatoes that accompanied it. My daughter got the filet medium, and it was rare, and served with cold mashed potatoes. We had to ask twice for bread, and water glasses were empty for much of the meal. To be fair, I ordered the Kansan salad and the penne with vodka sauce and both were very delicious, though the penne was just above room temperature. All in all, I can't recommend it and we won't go back.
Good: the corner booth and the quiet room were a nice setting for a reunion of five friends and family. Pasta and onion soup were good.
Not good: High prices, inept forgetful service, and tepid, dry Osso Buco made with gigantic whole pork shanks that seemed at least a foot long. Would have sent it back but it had killed my appetite.
Disappointed. Waitress poor- didn't come back once our first round of drinks served to ask if second drink or wine wanted, no refill of water until after bill paid, just went absent on us. Table of 6 with two orders of mussels and so way too much for 1 person. The mussels were tough and tasteless. The toast served with this was cut too thick and it was stale. Two orders of the pasta and chicken was bland. 1 order crab cakes were large and poorly seasoned. A large part of the plate was an arugula salad and the person eating it said it tasted like grass. One order of scallops and only three small scallops on this large plate. I will not return to this restaurant and would not recommend to anyone. There are too many great restaurants in Lawrence and it's just not worth it at this establishment.
I have enjoyed the Sunday brunch at the Ten several times in the past when visiting my daughter at KU. I thought it would be nice to have brunch there following Graduation this past Sunday. I was mistaken. The Ten clearly went for the money grab by moving the buffet into the lobby of the hotel so they could pack in more people. We were seated in the bar area which is great if you are just having drinks but not the place for brunch. There were insufficient staff on hand so there were numerous items on the buffet that were not timely replenished and many of the hot items were cold. In addition, several key items were missing from the brunch including the omelette station. To add insult to injury, they did not include coffee and an orange juice or mimosa as they normally do with the price of the brunch which is $29 per person. In short, a very disappointing meal on a very special occasion. Shame on you Ten!
My wife and I dined at The Ten for our one year anniversary. They brought us complimentary champagne (my wife is pregnant but a very nice gesture). Our server was very friendly and prompt. We had the restaurant manager come by to say congratulations. Our appetizer (bacon wrapped shrimp) arrived quickly and was excellent. We both had filets that were cooked correctly to order although they were brought out on the wrong plates (no big deal). All in all it was a very positive experience and we would absolutely recommend The Ten to anyone looking for a special occasion dining experience.
The food was very good and the wait staff very friendly and accommodating. The bar area was very loud, but that can be expected. I thought that the food was overpriced. There was only one side with the entree and no bread or any other side with the meal. For the price, I would have expected more.
The bar is pretty good and if you plan to eat you should eat in the Bar. To be honest Ten just isn't that great of a restaurant. While the people / servers are nice I don't think running a restaurant is their expertise. I believe the same people run both the Eldridge and the Oread restaurants and they just don't seem to have the skill to have the restaurants fun on all cylinders.
Hopefully they figure it out someday.
Each person in our party of 4 had a great meal. Tenderloin cooked to perfection with a flavorful demi glace, Bronzino was moist and delicious, asparagus salads divine, hazelnut mushroom streudel was an unusual and flavorful appetizer. We had a great bottle of wine, a nice server, and a table by the window so we could enjoy the ambiance of Massachusetts street on a Saturday night.
Upscale atmosphere did not correlate with the noise level from the adjacent wedding reception the thumping of the base was not conducive to a romantic meal service was slow on the table placements if you're not in a booth against the window he'll feel really awkward food was average Certainly not worth the price tag will not be going back.
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 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.
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.
