Editorial Review of
A dining experience at La Jolla’s Nine-Ten is often the stuff of an epicure’s most memorable dreams. Service is unrivaled, and all ingredients are refreshingly fresh. Although the dark wood interior is attractive, dine al fresco on the Grande Terrace, and the faintly saline ocean breeze will only enhance your appetite. Not only is the interior wonderfully put together, but the service is superb. With well trained staff, any questions you may have on the food or drinks can be answered precisely and specifically. Everything from the food to the decor and to the service is top notch and high quality. Poached Maine lobster as an appetizer? Why not—each exquisite bite is a bit of heaven. Entrees are wild and unforgettable, like pork "two ways", duck breast with chive cream tapioca, and even roasted roulade of rabbit. Or if you’re the trusting type, put yourself at the "Mercy of the Chef" with a prix fixe menu that includes matching wines. For dessert, all ice creams are churned in-house, a perfect end to an inimitable culinary experience. Nine-Ten is unique in the fact that its menu is recreated daily in order to guarantee freshness in all of their dishes. Local fish selections are fresh each day with shipments from Hawaii and the North Pacific and Atlantic regions arriving each day. At Nine-Ten, enjoy the fresh produce of local artisan farmers where fresh produce is a daily fixture. If you like the pairing of wine with your meal, enjoy Nine-Ten's extensive wine cellar as well. Nine-Ten is the perfect combination of sophistication and elegance with its ideal location on the historic Prospect Street.
