“Where is the food?”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I was very excited to visit Five & Ten as it was highly recommended. Unless you are the skinnier sister of Kate Moss or an elf or order a lot of entrees you will be going home hungry and broke. The portions are so small that after having an appetizer, entree and dessert I went home and ate again. And by the way I am not a big eater! The restaurant is very charming and the food is presented beautifully and yes it tasted good, but not worth the price. Check their website and see the size of the food and compare it to the size of plate. Tapas are larger!

“world class”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

World-class dining in a chic southern town! What could be better?

Chef Hugh Acheson is the best in the South.

Parking is a slight issue, although the fire station across the street is available.

“favorite place in Athens”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is my favorite of the "nicer" restaurants in Athens. I like the new location too. All the components on the dish worked together well in terms of flavor and contrast of textures.

“Don't leave Athens without trying this restaurant!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Honestly, one of the best meals we've ever had.
My husband and I were told to try Five and Ten while visiting Athens and we were not steered wrong! The food was incredible (grouper and duck) and the service was impeccable (friendly, knowledgeable). The atmosphere was elegant, but relaxed.
Our oldest son was just accepted at UGA for next year. I know we will be visiting Five and Ten many more times!
