“Wonderful Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2009

Selected Nine Ten from online reivews. Listed as a top brunch/lunch spot.
Located in beautiful La Jolla and just steps away from the water, Nine Ten was fabulous.
EXCELLENT service. Ate in the bar area to watch NBA playoffs. Bartender knew her sports!! Very kind.
The chips were so good that we nearly ate ourselves into a chip frenzy! The chef has some amazing creations! Tried the Chicken and Short Rib Paninis. FANTASTIC!!
Put it on your list if you go through La Jolla.

“It can't get better than this...one of my best meal ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2008

Don't stop at the fact that this is an Hotel restaurant.
This is a gem, the service was amazing.
The chef at Nine-Ten is truly a top performer.
Plating was impressive, taste was exquisite.
A must go when in San Diego, truly worth it.

“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2008

We had a fantastic dinner last night at Nine-Ten. Food was amazing, they had a special of Tagliatelle with fresh truffles that was divine. Also enjoyed the raw tasting for appetizer. Service was great and the whole experience just delightful. We would definitely go there again when next in La Jolla.

menu changes constantly, and there's always a lot of tasty items. Be sure to ask what the risotto special is.
