Great little bar too.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSavor every bite!We enjoyed our dinner so much. The wine pairing is an excellent value for this excellent place. Between the three of us we had 9 different plates to sample, and literally every bite was savored, from appetizer to dessert. Arguably THE best creative kitchen in La Jolla.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining in elegant surroundingsSet in a charming character hotel the food and service are excellent. Sauteed scallops were superb as was the medium rare breast of duck. A good selection of wines and nice adjacent bar.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOld World Class!Mother's Day brunch was stately, enjoyable, and tasty! Our waiter was sweet, solicitous, and funny! It was a relaxing and lovely time!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA favoriteWe go to Nine Ten for Sunday brunch regularly. The service is attentive, and the food comes out quickly. The hardest thing about brunch is choosing which of the menu items I will have. My regular is their great huevos rancheros, but sometimes I am seduced by the Nine Ten omelet, or their brioche french toast. We also like the quieter atmosphere. Except for holidays, we can get in there without a wait; Don't tell anyone else how great this is - we might have to start making reservations for Sunday morning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSo nice we went twiceGreat spot & everything was fresh fresh fresh. Had Tortellini w/rabbit, duck breast and one of the best panna cottas I've ever had. Peas were the order of the night - every dish (not dessert) had peas multiple ways, including pea tendrils. We enjoyed it so much & it was only 2 blocks from our hotel, we went back again Sat. nite.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie Paradise!Excellent food. We went for lunch, and our entrees (salads) and sourdough bread were superb. I am a dessert aficionado, and loved the chocolate cake (gooey) with homemade caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream. I am looking forward to dinner at Nine-Ten, and have planned to go there for my birthday.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIts been around for more thanIts been around for more than 10 years, and becoming less of a hot spot, but the food is still excellent - though perhaps the innovation in the cuisine is less.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommended by a long-timeRecommended by a long-time La Jolla resident with impeccable taste.
