Dumplings and churros were quite good. Steak and burger were alright. The ambiance was nice. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food

We saw positive reviews of Ten Tables on both Google+ and Yelp, and the presence of a vegetarian tasting menu appeared to augur well since we are vegetarians. However, the vegetarian tasting menu is truly mediocre - the first two courses were nothing more than glorified vegetables (a single zucchini and a single carrot respectively, with goat cheese). The third course was a tiny helping of risotto which was admittedly reasonable. The dessert was again very disappointing - goat cheese, jam and lettuce, more like an appetizer than a real tasty dessert. Definitely not worth the $40, we felt hungry and unfulfilled even after all four courses were done. The tables were cramped and close together, and no plates were supplied for the initial bread and oil making it hard to eat it. Overall we feel this place is hyped up. It is definitely not worth the money, especially for vegetarians who want good food. There are better places in Boston where you can eat good vegetarian food for a lot less.

I love this place. It's cozy to the point that yes, everyone is a bit squished in, but in a friendly way that ends up being kind of nice The menu is approachable, but interesting, so you can bring anyone here, Boston foodies or grandmas from the midwest. It does NOT feel like a basement to me. They manage to come up with some interesting cocktails even thought they don't (can't?) serve hard liquor. I wish it were in MY neighborhood.

This is an amazing gem in Cambridge. The food is fabulous. It's a warm, friendly environment. The staff are friendly and informative. I highly recommend it!

Before I go too far I will answer the question everyone is wondering: 17 tables and a bar. I counted. Now on with the review. The atmosphere is pretty great, comfy seats, doesn't feel overcrowded, quiet enough to talk. It falls on the fancier side of most restaurants I have been too, but not over the top. Small selection of good beers, lots of wine, and some cocktails. They don't have a full liquor license and when I asked about what was in one of them the waiter had trouble describing what they were, sorta bush leauge if you ask me. Food: got the prixe fixe ($38), started with celery soup and Ricotta w/Gorgonzola Cavatelli (sp?). The cream and broth soup, while creamy and brothy, wasn't very special. It was good, and frankly I should have seen it coming, celery is not very special. The pasta with mushrooms and Gorgonzola was quite good. The dessert was a chocolate terrine. It was amazing. Chocolate with what I think was a salted caramel ice cream was the perfect combination. I don't usually even like dessert but this was hands down the best part of the meal. Overall this was a solid meal and I enjoyed the resteraunt. GIven the price though I wouldn't say its high on the list to go back to.

I cannot say enough good things about my experiences at Ten Tables. It's a great place for an intimate dinner. While not cheap, it is extremely reasonable for the quality of food and the portions. The beer and wine selection is small, but trust their judgement -- they've picked out some of the best. And be sure to leave room for dessert. They always have creative pastries, ice creams, etc. that you will definitely want to end your meal with. Call ahead and make a reservation or head over late and sit at the bar.

I've been to this location of Ten Tables twice, most recently for a work dinner. Both times I had an impeccable culinary experience. The staff is knowledgeable, the atmosphere intimate and warm (good for either a meal with friendly co-workers or a romantic date night), and the menu interesting and delicious. Our table went with the tasting menu which offers three savory courses and one sweet for $48 per person. On the pricier end but worth the splurge.

I love love Ten Tables. It has been my favorite restaurant for awhile. I love both their Cambridge and Jamaica Plain Location and love their new bar too. I particularly like the Cambridge location for some added space. Their tasting menu is great and they always accommodating for the pescetarian. I have had some great glasses of wine here by the glass. Their regular tasting menu isn't outrageous at 44 or so and definitely filling. Their best deal is on Sundays 33 for App,Entree and Dessert. Their dessert is out of this world if you can stomach it. Their service is always impeccable as well. You will not be disappointed if you choose Ten Tables for your next special occasion.
