I read some great reviews of this place recently and I wasn't disappointed today when I visited. Great selections of wines - and some really special wines by the glass. Intimidate atmosphere - closest I've come to feeling like I'm in a wine bar in Europe in Sydney. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Recommend the window table so you can people... More

We had an awesome meal here. So glad we ventured out of downtown to try this spot. I was a little worried we would not get a table as they did not take any reservations. We arrived about 5:30 and they were able to set the four of us upstairs. The staff were quite friendly and helpful with the wine... More

Good selection of interesting wines by the glass as well as other drinks and small plates to go with them. Cosy atmosphere. Get's quite cramped when full but that's all part of the fun. Don't be intimidated when you walk it to a very full bar. Worth the wait if you have to queue for a table. Has an upstairs... More

Everything from the food, to the wine, to the service was exquisite. I felt like I was in Italy. I would highly recommend the clam broth. My friend and I were going to share two dishes. However, the waitress recommended four or five between two people. We took her advice and ordered four. We were completely satisfied and full.

No matter how many times I visit - every time I leave - I'm thinking about when I can come back. This is extremely rare for me as I prefer trying new places - but this place has 'it - the x factor - ' whatever you want to call it'. Haven't had a bad or boring dish yet -... More

My wife and I went here for my birthday. We had an awesome experience, simple but very well executed pastas and entrees. Would definitely recommend.

Fortunately for me I live just around the corner from this uber-cool wine bar. Whether it's a catch up Friday or Saturday lunch with a girlfriend (the only days they are open for lunch) or meeting up for a drink after work, 10 William delivers. Professional staff, an eclectically curated wine list and a seasonal menu with hints of Europe... More

The great thing about this restaurant is that when it's open there is continuous service. We had lunch at 3.30pm on Saturday (it is only open for lunch Friday and Saturday and is closed Sunday - who can blame them with penalty wage rates in Australia) and the kitchen closes at 11.00pm - unusual in Sydney. With a late lunch... More

Went here after a DISASTROUS meal at East London restaurant (in the London Hotel - avoid!). But as always, Ten William delivers. Amazing food, great wines, uber-professional staff ... the complete package. Just what Paddington needs and deserves. Congratulations - you have set the bar high (and your competitors like East London clearly cannot compete).
