“Breakfast out on the terrace was a great way to start the day.”
Reviewed 28 August 2009

We had a delicious breakfast served out on the terrace with an ocean view. My husband and I both ordered the two egg breakfast which came with hashbrowns, toast, and 4 pieces of either bacon or sausage. The food was served just as ordered and the service was good. A great way to start the day!

“Wow!!! La Jolla's best kept secret!”
Reviewed 21 August 2009

I've been to NINE-TEN a few times now and while lunch is very tasty and a more casual scene, you can't say you've had the NINE-TEN experience unless you've had dinner there! one word- FABULOUS! you have to have the hamachi and the chef's signature jamaican pork dish!

“Wonderful Lunch Spot”
Reviewed 22 April 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”
Reviewed 9 December 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”
Reviewed 12 September 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.
