The restaurant is in a beautifully restored house close to the University of Georgia campus. We were on our way to a concert. The food was very good, but the menu is somewhat limited. I ended up eating pasta because the other menu items were either something I didn't want to eat (venison), or prepared in a way I didn't... More

We had a nice quiet dinner after a struggle to park in the undersized lot. The food was good , reasonably quick and the service was good, engaging, and attentive without being pests. The only issue was the price --just a little too high for Athens. Dinner for 2 with 1 drink, dessert and tip was $90+. On the positive... More

Great service but we did not feel the meal was worth the price. Oysters were great but the steak was rather dry and is not accompanied by any sauce. Creme Brûlée was a nice end to the meal though. Restaurant is beautiful but loud. Not a place to catch up with a large group because of the noise level.

Lovely old mansion. Pimento cheese appetizer was great. Limited menu without a selection of sides. Ordered the steak which was 16 Oz alone on a plate. Standard pasta was delicious. Duck dish was interesting but I would never order again. Wine selection was fair.

This place is the place to go if you like long waits, small proportions, and high prices. The only reason it gets a "3" is because the food is pretty good. But the service is awful. Been there, done that - won't be back again!

Hughe Acheson has placed Athens on the food map with this restaurant. This restaurants success has brought many new and fine eateries. This one is still the top. Great location in heart of 5 points on a central hub street of Milledge Ave. located in a great house with a wonderful wide front porch for dinning outside . Seasonal farm... More

I was delighted to be treated to dinner at this Hugh Acheson restaurant while on a recent business trip to Athens. Honestly, I had no idea that Athens had the reputation for fine dining that it has, and my meal at Five & Ten certainly helped confirm its status. The food was expertly prepared and presented by a very attentive,... More

Easily the worst meal I've ever had at a supposedly upscale restaurant. The chef staff was obviously on vacation when my wife and I had dinner with another couple last week.....poor food along along with outrageous prices and ridiculously small portions. Save your money and go to Waffle House. I'll never go again, nor suggest it to my friends.

Very nice, elegant atmosphere with great service too. Portions very small, would even call them "tiny". While I don't mind small portions, the prices were high for the amount of food on the plate. We had a salad with little lettuce, a few crumble of cheese, a few crumbles of nuts and two of the tiniest slices of apple....not sure... More

Memorable dining experiences are elevated by great food, great drinks, and attentive service. The experience is piqued when one or more of these is plain. So it was with our experience, but to be fair, I can't say the entire service experience was plain. The glasses were always kept filled by the staff whose job it was, the drinks were... More
