Not Impressed, 6/29/2010

After hearing great things about Five & Ten, 3 of us went last Friday night. We had reservations and were seated right away. Our server (I didn't get her name), took our drink orders, & told us... about the specials. Most of the descriptions were fairly pretentious, imo. She brought our drinks (water & soft drinks - in really small glasses), and some totally unimpressive bread, and took our order. The food arrived soon -- we ordered roasted chicken with green beans, some type of greens, and squash casserole; a pork dish with okra and grits; and trout with fennel and fingerling potatoes. The meats were all cooked very well, but the side dishes were not so good. The green beans and greens were extremely tough, the squash was only okay, the grits were forgettable, & the okra and potatoes were pretty good. This is not what I was expecting from all the rave reviews I read (but I notice that some are a few years old). We were almost finished with our meal when the server reappeared with a CAN of diet coke. She proceeded to pour half in one glass and half in the other! Someone else refilled our water glasses. We didn't see the server again until she brought the check ($84 +). She didn't bring it in one of the leather holders - it was just a piece of paper! Other tables had the covers and the patrons were paying with credit cards. I paid cash, and it's a good thing I didn't need any change, because, once again, the server disappeared. Go to DePalmas instead.

great and different place, 8/16/2008

5 and 10 has a great menu, especially if you arrive before 6pm. The servers worked together as a team and attentive to all tables. It's a great date place.

Worth it!

Not family fare, nor everyday cuisine. But Chef Hugh Atcheson prepares a culinary masterpiece daily with fresh and eclectic dishes. You pay for it, but it's better than anything in ATL, and right in your own town!

Fancy dinner place

The food and service was amazing. The meals I've had, have never been anything beyond great. The food is based off of French cuisine, which is great!

Great Special Occasion Restaurant!

Be sure to make reservations, if you're looking for the quality of an Atlanta restaurant, this is the place to treat your significant other. You will also get quality service which normally comes at a premium in Athens.

Best!

This is the best place in Athens, hands down. If you have a special evening and want your food cooked to perfection with ultra attentive wait staff, ...
