We were really hoping that the Ten was ready for prime time. They fell well short. They were out of two entre' items at 5:30. The menu is very limited, so how can you not have enough food to complete the menu. The staff needs way more training. No one took our drink order for at least 10 minutes after we got there. A grey haired dude was bussing tables in levis and a wrinkled shirt. The local beef short ribs were inedible, and the glob of ooey polenta and gooey spinach was unfit for a so-called fancy restaurant. After our meal was finished had to wait 10 minutes for bill. I know they are trying to get better, but maybe the management should have dinner at Walkers and take a lot of notes on how to run a first class joint. The hostess needs to be in front by bar not around the corner. They will need to revamp the whole operation before we go back for another try. Simple food done well, is better than fancy food done poorly. For the prices the Ten is charging, they have to step up their game by an exponent of 10.

We participated in a Valentine's Day set menu option. The dinner was delicious and had an option of wine pairings to match the service. It was wonderful. Perfect portions and pleasant service.

We would participate in something like this again in the future.

We have stayed at the Northern a number of times, but had not tried Ten yet. We decided to give it a try since the weather was horrible and I did not want to venture outside. The dining room is beautiful and comfortable. We were sat immediately and had a server tell us about specials and their wine of the night. We were able to get out drink orders quite quickly.
We decided that we each wanted a butter lettuce salad. Nothing prepared us for how HUGE the salad was going to be. It was a whole head of butter lettuce with fresh tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese and tasty dressing. Definately worth the price, however, we could have shared the salad. I had the special, which was a lobster rizzoto and my fiance had an aged New York Strip steak. Both meals were excellent. The only complaint was that my fiance said that with it being dry aged meat, the very edge of the meat was not as delicious as the rest of the steak. The stak and the sides were excellent though. The rizzotto was also creamy and delicious. I appreciated that the main course was not rushed out to us while we still had our salads as is the case with so many other places.
We decided to have dessert as well ad shared a flourless chocolate tort. It had a Bailey's cream and a carmel sauce and was VERY sweet but also very good. It was a good thing that we shared. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing.
This is definately a place that is on par with the rest of the amazing service that is availible at the Northern!

What a great place to eat. Service is 5 star and the food is excellent. Truly a great restaurant. I highly recommend it when in Billings.

Price is right for this class of restaurant.

Thank Bill E

For the price, it could be better. Our experienced hinged on an awkward moment when the waiter explained to us that scallops were supposed to be translucent and cooking them all the way is not how they are cooked. I double checked on google and found that scallops are done right when they go from translucent to opaque. Needless to say, we just left them on the plate and were still charged. I would expect a self-proclaimed fine dining restaurant to know how to cook scallops and not have to deal with a waiter explaining or in this case making excuses for why their food was substandard.
