Ten Tables absolutely lives up to its reputation as one of the coziest places in all of greater Boston. It's small, intimate, and super inviting with a bar that seats 4 and (I'm guessing) just 10 tables. The food is even better than the atmosphere. I went most recently for their Sunday Supper which is a $40/pp price fixe with... More

I did have high hopes for this place. We went here for a Sunday dinner. First, at the time of reservation they don't mention that it is pre-fix menu only and that a la carte menu is not available. Fine. The service is friendly and very polite, but a bit too intrusive. The food was very average. Oh, and some... More

You can be sure of getting an excellent meal at Ten Tables. You won’t get the latest foams and forages, but you will get well-thought-out flavor combinations and first-quality ingredients. Our meal started with a complementary small glass of celeriac soup; we were tempted to order a bowl of it. We then shared a starter of Pilsener-steamed mussels with garlic... More

Very unassuming from the outside, incredible food on the inside! We did the chefs tasting and it was delicious. A hidden gem.

I was looking forward to eating here but found the food good but not excellent and everything was over-priced. Very expensive meal. Service was ok

Ten Tables is one of my favorite spots. It has the cozy feel of a local neighborhood spot and the sophistication of a big city restaurant. The service is always great. This past visit, I arrived for a 7:15 reservation and they were already out of the fish and lamb option. That was a big disappointment. The wait was extraordinarily... More

With another couple, we had dinner here recently. It was overall a mediocre dining experience. Two couples ordered a bottle of pro secco. When poured, it was warm. We all tried the special soup of the evening, watermelon gazpacho. It was basically a broth with no pureed or fixed vegetables or fruit. It was seasoned with something that tasted liked... More

I went last May after a recommendation from someone in the neighborhood.Excellent food and worth the crowd and noise. Small place and busy but deservedly a neighborhood favorite.

I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for quite awhile and unfortunately I should have waited indefinitely ! The service was awful except for 1 woman who was attentive - she was not our waiter . Our waiter was socially awkward and had a attitude - not a good combination . We sat down for dinner and orders our... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct community unique and separate from the bustle of other areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful, large green space well worth a visit if you venture to JP.
