  • We had reservations and arrived on time and we were promptly seated. We ordered drinks and a bottle of wine and several dishes to share. The service was excellent and the food was just fantastic. One thing that stood out was the mushroom pasta with mushroom sauce and it was very good

  • There's not much to say about Nine-Ten other than it's outstanding. Every visit has been top-notch. The food is so good. I'd recommend the hamachi sashimi, ahi crudo, Jamaican jerk pork belly, Parker rolls, black cod, lamb, and ribeye... you can't go wrong with anything here. The service and staff are wonderful. Nice cocktails. Valet or street parking.

  • Loved our experience at Nine-Ten. Chef Matt took amazing care of us and our server was very attentive. The food was fresh, creative, and just delicious. There wasn't anything that we disliked. Ingredients are local and great quality. The Meyer lemon semifreddo was by far my favorite -- just amazing if you are a fan of citrus. We can't wait to come back (the menu changes every ~3 weeks or so)
