Japanese
The Japanese word ten can mean "heaven", "above" or "celebration" and the dining experience at TEN modern Japanese restaurant is all of these things.


TEN approaches traditional Japanese dishes as if they were works of modern art. The superior ingredients are the building blocks of inspiration and the plates are crafted to please both the palate and the eye. Superior products are used and the seafood arrives daily from fishing auctions in Japan and Hawaii. Beyond the incredibly fresh sushi, the menu features a variety of hot and cold ala carte items and offers choices for vegetarians as well as non-seafood eaters.


Ten also features an extensive wine list, and specialty cocktails using unique ingredients such as the "Ten" which is comprised of sake, vodka and aloe juice.

We love Ten but think it is time for a refreshed menu. We probably will not go back until this happens.

So grateful to have discovered this gem in Charlottesville! I felt like I’d been transported to a NYC Michelin Star restaurant . . . on a magic carpet! Phenomenal food, superb service, great music . . . it was a perfect evening! I had miso soup, lobster tempura,Tiger Roll, and Hamachi. And the sake (Blossoming Peace) was smooth and sweet, just the way I like it. I’ll be coming back often. Thank You for a much needed fine dining experience!

TEN is our "go-to" place for special occasions and just special treats. The food is always excellent and we have been moving away from sushi rolls and trying interesting appetizers and other "just fish" items. But we never eat there without getting the tempura shrimp with seaweed.

Service wasn’t great, and you can get better sushi for cheaper. It was also so dark we could barely see the menus.

No one over 60 should go to this restaurant as the noise level discouraged conversation. The food was good; the service was atrocious. We could see our drinks being poured but had to wait too long to be served. Also, the last entre of the 4 persons served was far later than the first 3.

Service was refined and classy, the setting was fit for an anniversary dinner. The wagyu roll and tiger roll were fantastic. Cocktails were great as well!

Everything was great but the wagyu trio skewers - not even close to real wagyu. Nice sauces but much too chewy to pass as wagyu.

Waitress was extremely inattentive, slow service, she could not answer any questions about the menu and was reluctant to give recommendations. She was just friendly to the point of actually being rude. Food was subpar, not impressed with rolls rolled sloppy, food served cold. Extremely disappointed. We brought guests here to entertain and were embarrassed.

Three of us enjoyed the food very much. The Ten Martini was surprising very sweet; not enjoyable. Recommend ordering a number of small plates and sharing among the group.
