Excellent experience...writing a reveiw to campaign on behalf of the rabbit dish. Needs to be a full time feature on the menu.
One of the best plates I have ever eaten.
We were staying at the Grande Colonial for my wife's birthday and decided to try Nine-Ten for her Birthday dinner based on the reviews and convenience.
After looking at the menu we decided to try the "Mercy of Chef" 6-course tasting menu.
Course 1: Oysters on the Half shell with Myer's Lemon, Spicy Uni and cilantro
Course 2: (Salad) Hers: Pear and Belgium Endive, Mine: Tuna Poke
Course 3: (Fish) Hers: Steelhead Salmon with roasted fennel, charred cucumber, crispy baby potatoes, blistered cherry tomatoes, fennel soubise, Castelvetrano olive relish; Mine: Baja Striped Bass, pearl onions, king trumpet mushrooms, manila clams, bread tuile, clam herb sage
Course 4: Short Rib Ravioli, hazelnut cream, butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, hazelnut brown butter crumb, fried sage;
Course 5:(Meat) Roasted Rabbit (a Rabbit loin and a Rabbit leg stuffed with a Fois gras of the rabbit) with sauteed fiddle-heads and veggies
Course 6: (Cheese) Hers: Cypress Grove Midnight Moon goat’s milk, date & squash compote Mine: Capricho de Cabragoat’s milk, tandoori spiced cashews
Dessert: Hers: Chocolate, Cherry & Pistachio - soft chocolate ganache, dehydrated chocolate mousse, pistachio cream, sweet cherry ice cream; Mine: Strawberry & Guava - guava mousse, strawberry & Macarpone ice cream, guava gel, vanilla sponge cake, coconut cream
Each course was a different take on menu items or the chef's imagination for that dish. Even items we normally wouldn't eat were wonderfully presented.
Had an amazing night
Excellent chef. We’ve had lunch twice and breakfast. Great burger, good Kale salad. Fresh, delicious, sophisticated nuanced chef. We wanted to try dinner but was booked. Next time. Try it you will be delighted. Lovely staff and service.
I reviewed several different restaurants in the La Jolla downtown area for a place to have our anniversary dinner and selected this place based on the fact that it was in a historic building and the Zagat rating.
We were not disappointed. After ready Chef Knibbs online reviews I was worried that the food wouldn't be as good as I "expected" however, it was definitely excellent!
I had the steelhead salmon and even the skin was delicious (I always peel it off, but this was crispy and looked very edible). The sauce and accompanying sides were very tasty as well.
Hubby had the short ribs and was very happy with his choice.
Our wait person was attentive and helpful.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you like a creative twist on traditional meals.
Had the Rabbit Special, it was excellent
It was fantastic. The “Mercy of the Chef”. Was awesome and our server Mark was excellent and knowledgeable about the wine.
910 is an excellent small restaurant in beautiful downtown LaJolla. I like the modern artistic decor and the food is consistently very good. The bar seems to be a popular place to sit and eat for singles or couples. I'm not sure if they have a special lower priced bar menu but that would be worth checking out.
Quality and innovation of food never disappoints and service is truly exceptional! A gem of a restaurant
The food at Nine Ten is as always superbly prepared and delicious. My wife’s salmon was the best she has ever tasted. The service is impeccable and we can use the Passport dining card to get very good value for the money. We ate there for lunch and the ambience and noise level level was very acceptable. They also have a very nice patio area for times when the weather is nice.
The food here is consistently spectacular. Really superb.
We would have liked to sit outside in the sunshine but there were 2 people on a 4 top table so our party of 3 couldn't fit. Not to worry, staff were very friendly and wanted to look after us. We sat in the window where it was very sunny and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food was above and beyond what we expected. What a great place for girls to have brunch before exploring La Jolla. Highly recommend.
My wife's pork chop was over cooked - just not edible. Her vegetables were under cooked.
Good cocktails and wine.
Mercy of the chef with wine pairings was fantastic and great value overall!
Went to Nine Ten with friends. Food was amazing. We all ordered something different and each of us felt it was some of the best food we have had. Highly recommend
The lobster salad was excellent. I really enjoyed the 10oz NY steak; one of the best I’ve had in SD. My wife wasn’t impressed with the salmon. Service and ambiance were great. We’ll definitely return.
Consistently special with creative menu, supurb food and excellent service. A favorite place.
Fantastic all around -- ambience, service and deliciousness. Not for casual dining - a bit pricey compared to my usual 'date night' places (plates over $30). But you get what you pay for. This is a FINE restaurant -- save it for a special occasion.
Wonderful place for lunch and dinner. Haven't been there in awhile, and sorry I haven't
gone back sooner but I will make it a point since the food and service is excellent.
Good; hotel staff always very kind to us
Consistently, this restaurant has kept its food at an excellence level. The service is immaculate. I have never been disappointed. It’s one the best restaurants in the city
We loved the food and this is a very nice place for a great dinner. The lighting was a bit bright but otherwise a fantastic place for a nice meal. Very attentive and friendly staff. The lamb was outstanding and wine selections were well paired.
One of the best food I've ever eaten at a restaurant.
We don’t get to La Jolla as often as we’d like but when we do get there, Nine-Ten is at the very top of our restaurant list. Dinner here is a wonderful experience from start to end. We again selected the tasting menu. The food was immaculately prepared and plated. Flavor combinations we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves — all delicious — demonstrated once again the profound skill of Chef Jason and all in the kitchen. Pacing was perfect, and I applaud the restaurant for creating a vibrant, upscale environment where guests can truly appreciate the food and wine, and actually enjoy a conversation. I don’t want total silence, but I’m tired of battling the ‘fake fun’ (noise) that ruins so many other dining experiences. The wine pairings were spot on. Some real stand-outs that I would likely not have discovered on my own and will now be searching out to enjoy again at home. Nine-Ten’s wine list is deservedly recognized by Wine Spectator for its excellence. Special praise must also go to Chris and Summer for their wonderful attention and impressive knowledge. Already looking forward to our next visit...and determined to get there more often!
This was our 4th time dining at Nine-Ten. The food was unbelievably delicious, as usual.
food was fantastic. server brought us a free glass of champagne for our anniversary. we had a great time.
Food was great as usual. The Thai lobster salad was amazing. The NY steak was great as well. I have never had a bad meal at Nine-Ten, and have dined here about 8 times
Best restaurant week meal ever.
I've been here many times before. This was the best Cobb Salad ever!
I'm not sure I can say enough about Nine-Ten. My fiance and I went based on a raving recommendation and we left both agreeing it was the best dinner we've ever had and we're both in our 40s (meaning not exactly new to the culinary scene). We had the 6-course meal with wine pairings and from the 1st course on we were constantly saying "wow" after each bite. Seriously amazing and while we're both east coast based, we're already planning a trip back to La Jolla and Nine-ten for a repeat performance. The ambiance, service and drinks were also top notch.
Always a great dining experience here! We each ordered the specials ~ gnocchi with truffles, and a porterhouse ~ so good! We were treated to an anniversary dessert that was deliciousness ~ thank you nine-ten ~
Choices for Sunday brunch on the menu is limited. Food is average and service is nice. Parking for 10$ is not cheap.
Delicious, creative, would order again entrees. The list of appetizers could use a simple salad or two to give diners more choice. The pear salad with endive was nice when we substituted greens for the endive although the portion of lettuce was skimpy when the pear/pecans were added to the mix!
Short ribs were succulent and unbelievably flavorful. Would order again .. and the bonus is that they're gluten-free!
Delightful dining experience.
The noise level was almost intorable. Food was incredible. Service was sketchy
Lost their mojo. Over cooked dull food. Coffee like dish water. Snotty staff. No manager visible. Living on their reputation.
1. Excellent service.
2. Next to historic hotel.
3. Next to Scenery spot.
Hands down one of the best restaurants in San Diego. If Michelin came down here, I'd bet they'd get a star. We did the Mercy of the Chef, which I highly recommend, and it was epically fantastic...
Went here for our anniversary dinner. Nice restaurant connected with the historic Grande Colonial hotel in La Jolla. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. The foie gras was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend for a wonderful meal.
Jason Knibb is a San Diego treasure. He is able to create and deliver great cuisine year after year. The management and staff work hard to make guests welcome and comfortable. One of the top five restaurants in San Diego.
No one does fish better ,in my opinion , than 910. Never disappointed. Always cooked to perfection. The updated decor is lovely. Always fun to have dinner in this neighborhood gem.
