I have dined at this restaurant many times and it's always the same - good food, poor service. I love the chef's creations and wish I wanted to return more often. If they were to improve their service they could be really great.

Very good restaurant in La Jolla, with a very useful valet parking scheme. A very reasonable lunch-time menu with excellent value choices and a very attentive service. Good choices of wine by the glass and an unhurried approach made this a lovely lunch indeed this past summer.

Had dinner here on 9-10-2014 and had a very pleasant experience. We had eaten here once in 2013, and 4 times in 2012. This time we had the same French waiter, Thiery, from near Lyon, that we had twice in 2012 (see my previous 5 reviews of Nine-Ten). Excellent service by Thiery and his assistants, as usual. Decor and food... More

We celebrated our daughter´s birthday in one of their private dinning rooms at Nine-Ten. The staff was very accommodating, personal and diligent. A great experience all in all, from the planning stages all the way to the dessert wine. The food was incredible: taste, flavor, presentation, quality. Excellent wine selection as well. Can´t wait to be back.

Trying various dishes, and we're never disappointed. Interesting combinations with some of the dishes but each surprised with its harmony and taste.... More
