    The ambiance was amazing however the food did not meet expectation in the least and even more so when the bill arrived. Wouldn't return.
    We had a fabulous experience at 9th Avenue Bistro when we went to try the First Thursdays tasting menu in August. The location itself is nothing overwhelmingly special as it’s in a small shopping centre , and the decor inside is simple and sparse, however this is made up for by the fabulous food, fantastic wine and knowledgeable waiters. Highlights of the meal included a hearty black bean soup with a beautifully contrasting sweet corn ice cream, and the black garlic aïoli that accompanied the potato, carrot and artichoke gratin was absolutely sublime. The meal was rounded off with a gorgeous dessert, the star of the show being a silky-smooth and beautifully tart lemon poppyseed ice cream. The waiters were very clued-up on all the menu items, and even where individual items had been sourced from. They were attentive and charming, and added to the fine-dining experience.
    The passion the people at 9th Avenue Bistro have for what they do is palpable. Though the setting/ isn't too appealing, you are quickly absorbed into all the tastes/dish presentations and wines on offer. Treat yourself on a special occasion!
    I've always had good experiences at 9th. I had the best prawn rissoto here. Definitely a good pick for a fancy celebratory dinner. I personally don't like the dimmed lighting, which I suppose most people do enjoy, but other than that, an amazing pick!
    We tried the 6 course tasting menu for the first time. What an amazing gustatory experience. Definitely the best in Durban. I look forward to seeing this gem of a restaurant making the Eat Out awards nominees for best restaurant. Can't wait to return.
