Dear Artichoke78: Thanks for taking the time to post comments about NINE-TEN. I'm glad to hear you enjoy our Happy Hour. I'm sorry about the limited parking you are able to find here in La Jolla. Just know that we do offer valet parking for just $5 per car with validation. Compared to other hotels/restaurants here in the Village, it's the best deal in town. Hope to see you back soon. Sincerely, Neal Wasserman, Director of Food & Beverage

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 the opportunity to do that for you. Thanks again. Executive Chef, Jason Knibb

“Fantastic meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The food was delicious - from the truffle gnocchi appetizer to the lamb loin main. Service was excellent, charming and unobtrusive for a large party of 8. Would recommend this place for foodies and wine enthusiasts.

“Perfect Engagement Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We enjoyed the 3 course "Garden Menu", where you chose from the starter's and entree menu, as well as from the dessert menu. For an additional 20$, each course was accompanied by a well matched wine, selected by the knowledgable waiter/sommelier. Every single dish we had was splendid.
