The 10 Cases is an unpretentious buzzing little Bistrot with wine as its main focus. We only ever buy 10 cases of the wines that you will find on our short list in order to constantly try new things rather than settle for a list of old favorites.

We only have 10 tables, which you can book for lunch or dinner. We also have an outside terrace, bar counter and Cave a Vin next door which remain reservation free for drinks and snacks.

Our menu revolves around a monthly changing offering of tapas style dishes and sharing plates, 3 entrees, 3 mains and 3 desserts as well as a selection of daily changing specials.

Menu is on a blackboard but not all seated can see it. When asked for a paper menu the waitress did mention that they are trying to save on paper. Ok wine list and food variety was ok. Desserts not too exciting either, considering I am a dessert fan.

Really good with wine and food . Slight let down that bread was a bit stale (left too long in hot kitchen possibly ) and desert not quite up to standards and quality of everything else
But definitely will revisit

Great service and lovely atmosphere, but the food could have been better, the veal was slightly overcooked and the potatorosti was burnt.

Used to love this place, but the service has severely gone downhill. No one cares here. No one acknowledges you anymore. It’s hideous. Won’t ever go back.

It was a very sunny afternoon and this was a business get together with a partner of mine after work. The only Rosé on winelist, which was why I chose 10 Cases in the first place was absolutely delicious and perfect for the hot temperatures. The food we had, the white asparagus with goat curd, the polenta sticks with cheese and the cheese choices, was great. Only disappointment was no gluten free bread or crackers.

Been twice before with my husband. So when we knew friends where coming to London. We booked a table.
Love the potion sizes and have tried new dishes each time.
Wouldn't really want to be in a group larger than four.
Will be returning many times I'm sure.

Met with a friend for her birthday lunch. We’ve been before and the food was again fantastic. Great service with free still and sparkling water. Also delicious warm bread. Menus are on the walls so you do have to peer around to see what’s on but there’s always a great selection of tapas style small dishes of loosley French (some Spanish) origin. Main plates are also available. Good fish selection. Place specialises in wines also with an underground tasting room which looks good for groups. The Bistrot is cosy - tables are packed into a small space so is best for groups of two to four. On a relatively quite road off Covent Garden - you could almost be in Paris! Definitely recommend.

Food maintained its usual high standards - the lamb was amazing, dauphinois potatoes historic and everyone went home happy. Drank a quirky sparkling white from Burgundy - Perles de Folie (loosely translated by me as bubbles of madness - what's not to like!). One of my favourite places to eat in London,

Been trying to eat here for nearly 5 years and third time lucky I did it and it was so worth the wait.

Wine was amazing. And decanted .

Starters of Croquettas, soft shell crab and padron peppers delicious.

We all went for lamb (rack of to share and brasied). The dauphinois that came was turned out of a loaf tin and crispy and creamy all at once.

And the cheese board ended our gourmet night.

Service great. Atmosphere cool and grown up. Can't wait to eat here again
