From our first bite to the last the food was absolutely amazing.
Our Nine-Ten experience was great! It was our first time heading out as a group since last year. The food was outstanding, the wine list was very impressive, and our server Greg was a very gracious host! He took great care of us from start to finish, suggested some specials, and made us feel at home. Will be back!
Three dinners out in the last 14 months, all of them here. Our favorite restaurant in San Diego.
Amazing experience. Amazing food. All staff where very attentive and made our special occasion even better.
Everything about our meal here was great! The food was very unique and was presented beautifully. The artichoke/carrot ravioli appetizer special our waiter Chris recommended was also very exceptional. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Impeccably informed servers
Creative well balanced dishes
Have never been disappointed
We were seated out back and it was extremely cold with the breeze even with heat lamps and blankets. We asked to be moved to a different table but weren’t accommodated.
Since we were outside and below, we felt a bit neglected and the service could have been better. It took a long time to requests and our check and we wanted to leave to thaw out.
The food was ok...hamburger and truffle fries were too salty for my pallet and the halibut was overdone.
Disappointing experience as a first time customer and since my good friend highly recommended it.
A lovely hideaway restaurant in La Jolla. Our anniversary meal was spectacular, and so was the service (and the cocktails).
As always, Nine- Ten rocks!
Superb service, outstanding menu and the entire staff goes above and beyond to ensure a fabulous dining experience- thank you!
Our waiter was outstanding and the food exceptional. It was a wonderful evening in an upscale yet low key environment. Highly recommend!!
Food, service, setting were excellent as usual. Favorite restaurant in SD.
We went for restaurant week, ambiance was lovely and the starters are fantastic, but the entrees were disappointing. I had the duck breast and my husband had the lamb. We requested for medium rare but the meat was still super dry. Dessert was good as well. Overall ok experience. Worth a try but we probably would not come back.
Great for a special date night. 👌
Very good food, excellent wine pairings, and for what it is, it’s a great deal. We’ll be coming back next time we’re in La Jolla
My husband and I had a wonderful experience at NINE-Ten for their San Diego Restaurant Week. And service was excellent!
Greg is outstanding. Love Nine Ten, has been a favorite restaurant of mine for years!
Food is superb on every course, service by Chris was outstanding and very attentive! The chef is wonderful. We shall come back soon.
Fabulous! Special occasion made super special.
Excellent food, and service super, a love the place
Amazing food, service, and ambience!
Give it 4.5 stars. Food was very good. Delicious flavors.
I have written several superlative reviews of this restaurant. The chef is fantastic as are the servers. The restaurant has been dealing well with COVID by offering service at a few outdoor tables in their courtyard. We had requested one of those tables and confirmed this by phone. Wen we arrived we were told by the rather surly hostess that we would be eating indoors. She showed zero empathy and basically told us that we had erred by booking indoors. Luckily for her and for us a table opened at curbside. Not ideal but acceptable. Fantastic food. Excellent service. Front of the house needs some training!
Loved it! Lobster starter Is excellent choice!
Very good food quality at reasonable prices.
Very nice and pleasant Resturant.
Went for a date with my spouse. The food was very good (excellent sashimi and the duck). The staff was friendly and helpful. Sitting on the terrace was very pleasant , and even in COVID-19 period it felt safe.
Nine-Ten is a fantastic restaurant. We are always blown away with how good the food is. Everything that we had on Saturday was excellent. We are looking forward to more availability of indoor seating soon since it does get chilly sitting outside for dinner in March. The service was great. The food takes a little while to come out but the staff is always checking in on drinks. Our coffee cups were never empty. We really enjoy the god everytime we eat at Nine-Ten.
We went to the restaurant for our anniversary because of the excellent reviews. Our reception was very negative regarding our table. We were offered only one table after having a reservation for over a month. We were told all the other tables are reserved. We toyed with going elsewhere and then another table was provided.
The food was good but not great. We had the cauliflower, Caesar salad, hamburger and half baked chocolate cake. There is no bread service or amuse Bouche. The prices are high, which we anticipated for a Michelin restaurant. The ambience is extremely quiet, no music and none of the “reserved” tables around us filled during the hour and 15 minutes we were there.
We would suggest to the restaurant to put a more positive spin on arrival. Instead offer other tables with the awareness that they are reserved in hour and a half if that was the case and possibly add some background music.
We had a little difficulty with the booking as they were between the time we made reservation able to have limited indoor dining . We chose indoors as it was chilly . It was socially distant and the food was outstanding . You can feel safe and have a top night out her for a special occasion !
We had a delicious dinner on the terrace with two friends. Great service, great atmosphere.
Eating outside on the back patio was elegant and quite special.
Excellent food, as always.
Our dinners were delicious. The lobster starter was fabulous. Mark our waiter was wonderful. It was a lovely evening! We highly recommend Nine-Ten.
Best Steak! Best Duck! Best service we have received in a long time. Never wanted dinner to end
Amazing food. Would not change a thing! Excellent waiter. Worth every penny. Wednesday’s are 1/2 price wine and champagne. Will be back every Wednesday!
Chef Jason is outstanding. This was the best meal I've had in years. The service was top notch and I will be recommending this restaurant to everyone I know. Thank you for sharing your gift with us! It was a pleasure to eat at your restaurant.
Nine ten is always amazing. We had a spectacular meal, the wine selected by the sommelier was outstanding and the service was delightful. This is one of our favorite restaurants and it’s always a treat to eat here.
Delicious, well prepared dinner. Excellent service. Creative, gourmet menu.
amazing experience! great service and great food as always! my steak was exceptional!
Anniversary the wait staff and chef made it a special experience!
Hamachi Sashimi was very good and worth ordering, the jerk chicken was nothing special...I asked the waiter if it was worth trying given that chicken is typically a fairly basic course and I've had very good jerk chicken before. He said the chef was from Jamaica and prided himself on the dish. Unfortunately I found it rather uninspiring - although the chicken itself was cooked well, the dry rub did little to provide the sort of depth and flavor one would expect from a caribbean jerk and the jus provided no more enhancement of flavor than the dry rub. Overall for a $34 chicken, I was left wanting much more and for the star of the dish to be other than the Yukon potato. My spouse tried the Halibut dish - yet again, the halibut was cooked near perfectly. However, again the flavor was left wanting. The first sensation to hit the pallet was an unsavory and overpowering cardboard/stale taste... although, I will admit after the first sensation the quality of the fish, how well it was cooked, and the buttery/flaky finish of the halibut was a welcome contrast. Less emboldened to try anything remotely risque, we opted to finish the night off with the donuts which were surprisingly tasty. For the price of the evening and the unsatisfactory main dishes I would opt for a different restaurant given another opportunity, especially given the number of options in the La Jolla area.
NINE-TEN was an AMAZING experience for me and my date. We had a reservation (super easy to make one online!) and we were seated at a beautiful table with our own warming lamp and it was perfect because we weren’t super far from any of the other tables but it still felt just personal and secluded enough for our own privacy. My date had the burger, truffle fries, and an IPA. His burger was cooked to perfection and everything was so tasty! I had the ribeye and it was cooked exactly how I liked and the sauce, broccolini, and potatoes were to die for! Our server was amazing and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had in La Jolla so far. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for amazing food, drinks, service, and ambience!
