Wonderful dinner. We tried the Japanese fish. A little dry and the cornbread was too. However, overall excellent dinner. The portions and presentations were excellent. Pimento cheese app was excellent. Our waiter did an amazing job. We loved the Pear cocktail.

It is a pandemic and they made us feel safe to eat there and enjoy good food and service. That ought to be enough! But, they go above and beyond with drink and wine recommendations. Our server was knowledgeable about all the food and drink and was there when we needed him and made us feel alone when we didn’t. We spent a leisurely evening on the porch and forgot for a minute that there was a pandemic. Can’t wait to go back!

While I appreciate limitations related to the pandemic, there was no warning that the menu was limited to what was supposed to be appetizers... and that was limited to about 4 items. Were told there would be a few more choices an hour later. When asked about more items, the waiter offered a full lobster or bologna. I suspect he got a good laugh out of that in the kitchen... left him a good tip anyway for the sake of COVID. Overall, what an insult and a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! This was my daughter’s favorite spot while at college and my first chance to take her there since she completed med school. Won’t be going back.

Warm and friendly atmosphere with simply amazing food. You could tell that everyone working there enjoys what they do. We had a fabulous meal with seasonal cocktails, charcuterie, salmon and a delicious Lyonnaise salad that I wish I could replicate at home! It was a truly memorable experience and I am already looking forward to my next meal there!

We've been cautious about eating out during the pandemic. Five and Ten made us feel so comfortable. We were seated on the porch; tables were spaced far apart. Staff was both safety-conscious and welcoming. We had the ramen special and it was excellent. Would definitely go again--a little slice of normalcy in the midst of the current abnormal.

A four-person reunion among women who hadn’t eaten in a restaurant during the pandemic had us a little nervous, but the layout of Five snd Ten comforted us-although seating on the patio would have been even better! Servers wore masks the whole time and didn’t rush us at all. Lots of delicious options on the menu for everyone to feel excited about. Cocktails were amazing and delivered promptly. I’d definitely return - pandemic or not!

Our meal at 5&10 was needed change of pace from our trip.

The staff were delightful and our waiter Simon made the food even better with fun conversations with strangers that we don’t get during this time of Covid.

The food really was the best meal of our trip. We started with cocktails, the watermelon feta salad and the steamed muscles in broth. The salad summarized the end of summer while it took all my self control not to drink the muscles broth from the bowl.

We shared the scallops with lady peas and the pork chop with sautéed mushrooms, picked onions & peppers, and Hopping John. My scallops were cooked perfectly and the broth and lady peas were nice counter point to the scallops. His bone in pork chop was truly my favorite. The richness of the pork played played nicely with the pickled peppers and onions. It was so good, I wish we ordered the pork porterhouse and not just the chop.

5&10 was the absolutely the highlight of our trip.

Thank you for trying us out, and for your kind review. You certainly wouldn't have been the first guest to drink the mussel broth straight out of the bowl. We count ourselves very fortunate to have such a large space that allows us to entertain our guests while maintaining a safe distance.

Loved Five & Ten as always. This time, we sat on the patio for the first time, so I wasn't sure we'd enjoy that. We loved it - the restaurant has done a great job setting this up to be a pretty, cozy, and Covid-safe experience.

We had the chicken and dumplings (name doesn't do this justice) and that was wonderful as were our drinks and oysters. Dessert as this was a birthday meal was lovely.

I will say that the hostess did not see our note on the reservation, so might want to step on paying attention to that. The table we requested wasn't available, so no worries on that, but no one acknowledge my husband's birthday. He was probably happy about that, but I just think it's good to have a quiet 'happy birthday, Mr V' kind of thing...

I'm glad to hear that ya'll enjoyed yourselves on Saturday. Speaking of new menus, Chef Hugh's working on rolling out our fall menu slowly over the course of this month. I personally think that the way we change things up based on what's in season is one of the coolest parts of working in a restaurant that is partnered with local farmers. -Hank

We love Five and Ten and would recommend it to anyone who loves food. The restaurant is in a charming old home and the lighting and paint colors create a relaxing, sensuous atmosphere. The food is full of surprises however nothing is too extreme, everyone will be happy with the menu. The staff is authentically friendly and clearly proud to be a part of Team Five and Ten. I could have ordered three more scallop entrees!

This was the first time we have gone out in these times of COVID and we were really appreciative of the safety measures that the restaurant took to protect us. We sat at a corner table and everyone was masked when not eating so we felt just fine.
The meal was a delight off the tasting menu with a side of mixed tomatoes that tasted like they had just been picked. Service was attentive and not intrusive and we saw several other senior couples leaving so we felt right at home for our 52nd anniversary dinner.
