Nine-Ten Service - Score of 24 (very good to excellent)
"Nine-Ten's executive chef, Jason Knibb, is worldly yet
unpretentious; he's originally from Jamaica, has worked in
Poland and Maui, and counts Roy Yamaguchi, Hans Röckenwagner and
Wolfgang Puck as mentors. Although the rooms are elegant and
comfortable, sitting outside on the patio watching the sun set
is the way to go."
