Food is good, I like their happy hour. Parking is always a pain in downtown LJ though. Good place to meet friends for hh.
Excellent dinner and great service! Absolutely loved the wine paring choices our server made for us. We will return and next time we want to try the chef's choice menu option.
Dear K9frisbeetraveler. I appreciate you taking the time to post your positive feedback about your recent visit to NINE-TEN. I do hope you will come back and see us again soon and take advantage of our "Mercy of the Chef" dinner. It's always fun for me to get creative and surprise guests with their five courses and I would welcome... More
I have been to many top-rated burger joints including Umami and I have to say that the burger here is one of the best if not the best that I have had. Most places get a lot of hype because they have a million toppings and options. For me, its about the taste and the quality. The burger here is... More
Dear Cooking_Hawaiian - You certainly sound like you are a connoisseur of burgers! So I am grateful for the positive comments you had about the burgers here at NINE-TEN. We have received quite a few press accolades about them but it's even more gratifying to receive kudos from our guests...especially those who have experienced firsthand some of the best burger...

During a small vaca in San Diego we decided to pop into this place for a late lunch. It was good enough that we ate here several more times. I can't remember what we had on each individual visit but the frisee/beet salad stands out as do their burgers. We also had the salmon for dinner one night. All in... More
Dear Vic: Thanks so much for your positive comments about NINE-TEN. My style of cooking is all about staying true to who I am by showcasing the products…letting those products speak for themselves without all the fluff. I just create really straightforward food, keeping the plates simple, fresh and clean, while still being innovative and elegant. I appreciate your recognition... More
My wife and I recently were hungry and looking for food after an evening of theatre at The Old Globe. We stopped by Nine Ten where we found a closing dining room and a very energetic bar scene. Our hostess escorted us into a quiet area in the hotel and took incredible care of us. We had a bunch of... More
Dear Linkeman - Thank you so much for taking the time to post your feedback about your recent visit to NINE-TEN. I couldn't be happier to hear about the service you received. I hope the next time you are in the area and hungry, you'll come back and enjoy a complete dinner in the main dining room. We'd love to... More
We were worn out but had made the reservation in advance and decided to keep it since it was only steps away from our hotel. We ended up choosing to sit at bar to keep it a little lower key and received great service and enjoyed wonderful food, It is a little pricey but everything we ordered was delicious (my... More
Dear MrsH0dges. Despite the fact that you had just landed in San Diego after traveling across country, thank you very much for choosing to keep your reservation at NINE-TEN. Even though you didn't have the opportunity to experience the main dining room, I'm happy you were still able to get a good feel for our style of cuisine and service.... More
The food was great, as was the friendly service. Their wine list and wine by the glass were yummy, well poured and not over priced (for the quality...I had a cheaper quality wine down the street at Georges and it cost more). They were very accomodating with my allergies.
Dear NYC_Southerner2013. Happy to hear you had a chance to visit NINE-TEN during your recent stay at the Grande Colonial. I take great pride in our wine list (a Wine Spectator award winner since 2002) and appreciate your recognition of our efforts to keep the list interesting, affordable and different than that of other restaurants in the area. Thank you... More
This rating is for the half baked chocolate cake. It is so good!!!! You don't want to miss it. The doughnuts are not too shabby either. A must try.
Dear Haroyemomof3 - thanks for the kudos you gave our signature 1/2 Baked Chocolate Cake. This dessert has been on the menu since we opened our doors back in 2001 and remains today one of our best selling desserts. And we recently hired a new pastry chef, the acclaimed Rachel King, who has already put her own spin on it,... More
Four of us ate at Nine-Ten on Monday Oct 7, and while we enjoyed everything we ordered, we found it somewhat overpriced. The portions were very much on the skimpy side, which hardly justifies the mid-thirty's pricing on nearly all entrees. We found the service to be on the overly casual and "fun" side, again not quite right for such... More
Dear Wiley - I am sorry to hear that you were not "wowed" after you recent dinner at NINE-TEN. I will certainly pass along your comments about the portion sizes to our Executive Chef and will address the "overly casual" service you received with our wait staff. If you would l like to give us another try on your next... More
You will not be disappointed with your meal or the attentiveness of the staff. A fine breakfast to enjoy on the sidewalk or the interior of this 100 year old land mark in La Jolla. Moderate menu pricing makes this a great stop.
Thank you, Bob, for taking the time to provide some feedback about your recent visit to NINE-TEN. I very much appreciate your comments and will certainly pass them along to our entire front- and back-of-the-house team. See you again soon. Neal Wasserman, Director of Food & Beverage More
