A word from Bertrand at Mister A's
You’re just a few minutes from downtown San Diego; take the elevator to the top floor. You won’t believe your eyes! Huge jetliners sweep past at eye level. Our beautiful city’s skyline, San Diego Bay; why settle for just on ocean’s view when you can see the entire city from one vantage point.

Diner Reviews
  • "The most amazing thing here is the views of the city, the ability to sit on a rooftop patio, the sunset, the bay full stop! After being at a 5 star this 4 star seemed far removed from the service we experienced. Orders were slow to be taken, although water was religiously refilled the other drinks were not. The food was unique enough and very tasty while presented very creatively so as to meet the 4 star rating. The only thing that is needed is some more work on the table service which I suspect would vary depending on staff and night to night. Taken together this is one place I would become a regular at."

  • "Everything about Mr A's was great. We had, steak, shrimp, oysters, caesars salad, wine, martinis, specialty drinks, dessert, truffle fries, soup, and more! Everything was top notch. However, where they really shine is the table service. Our server, Tom, was professional, attentive, courteous, and very knowledgable about all the food they serve and he had some great recommendations. It was our anniversary and they brought out a dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate syrup with the most perfect handwriting/calligraphy I have ever seen in my life. We will be back often."

  • "I never find that the food is as impressive as the view, but it's still excellent. The restaurant is perfect for a date. They don't rush you, and there is really no bad seat anywhere. My favorite go-to place for an excellent meal and memorable experience in San Diego."

  • "Excellent service, outstanding view, great food. It's worth spending a bit more at this well managed restaurant, especially for a special dinner, or a dinner with special people. Atmosphere is relaxed for a high end restaurant, but there is nothing casual about how the staff is trained. Did not feel rushed at any time, and felt that we could stay for the entire evening. Best dishes for this evening were the hanger and filet duo, lamb chops, and cassoulet."

  • "Took my wife there for our ten year anniversary. Everything was first class from getting on the elevator to exiting and being greeted at the front desk. We were seated at the window with a great view of the city and the bay. Service was excellent. A minor glitch with wine. I ordered a 2009 Merlot and was brought a 2010. They apparently were out, so I ordered a different one. Pay attention to what is brought to your table. The food was very good. I wish the meat portions were a bit larger like Morton's. The steaks could of used more seasoning when cooked. Simple salt and pepper. However, the overall experience was worth it. I would differently go back."

  • "I have loved Mr. A's for a long time. It's pricey, however the food is truly wonderful and worth it, as is their wine list (voted one of the best in the WORLD). Your back drop at night are the lights of incoming planes at San Diego Airport - they fly right past the large wall of windows. The view is spectacular and their patio (on windless evenings) can feel like you're floating hundreds of feet off the ground. Whenever we're in San Diego, Mr. A's is a must. For two, you'll spend (with a few glasses of wine) between $120-160 for a memorable dinner, however you won't mind at all."

  • "Exceptional views of the city from virtually every table. The service was quite attentive and the waiter was very knowledgeable. For an appetizer I had ravioli stuffed with dover sole, an excellent dish. I had the venison special for dinner; my colleague had paella, which she loved. The venison was perfectly cooked. It came with a superb pasta accompaniment and cheese dumplings, which fell flat (it was the only part of the meal that disappointed). Dessert was stellar; I had the semifreddo."

  • "Mr A's is a great restaurant but, despite a host of staff, the service left a lot to be desired. I was also disappointed with the table allocation having specifically requested a view table. South west located tables offer the best views over the city and bay. I had visitors in town from Europe and was allocated a table in the north east part of the restaurant."

  • "The day ,time, weather and our 42nd wedding anniversary day peaked as we entered the main dining room. Expectations of what a good table should be were met and our meals evolved into conversation and rememberances of life as we have lived it. Mary Ann was Queen for the Day as she had never been so impressed with the mannerism and attentive service that staff gave us. To rate Mr A's we gave it a A+ with a Holy Card and gold star! Thank You, ........................Mr. D"

  • "When you want a special meal for special people this is the place to go. Scenery, food, and attention by servers make it unique. The menus become very real in the portions and taste of the food. Lovely, and we try it for every great occasion. Fish is always good and the wines are superb."

  • "Everything was great the only reason I didn’t give a 5 stars is because I been there few times and it seen to me that food portions are getting smaller and water should be free no matter which type you order."

  • "I read all the reviews before going here for the first time and wasn't sure what to expect in terms of food and service because of some of them. The service was impeccable, we never had to ask for anything, the staff were very courteous and friendly and the food was great. I had the beet salad with quinoa and the Lobster poached in butter and my husband had the Caesar salad and paella. Both were absolutely wonderful and artfully presented. The view was spectacular. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant even though it was a good 50 miles away from us. I would love to come here for Mother's Day brunch!"

  • "I'm one not much for words. However, this fantastic restaurant will have you talking for days. The location is perfect and probably has the best panoramic views of San Diego. The staff was very attentive but not so much that they posed as an inconvenience. They were all very skilled in their disciplines and added significant value to the dining experience. I was with a party of four and everyone enjoyed their stay and loved their food & wine selections. The guests were classy and dressed well for the most part. Nutshell; If you want to impress or simply treat yourself to the very best San Diego has to offer, look no further. Make sure you reserve a window table on the west side at sundown to take in God's beautiful display of natural art."

  • "This was my third time eating at Mr. A's. The other two times were incredible, so I'm hoping they were just having an off night. Let me first say...I have hire standards for restaurants like Mr A's compared to other restaurants. The service was not good. Waitress was unfriendly and not helpful. We ordered the Escargot as an appetizer. The garlic was so overpoweringly strong and "chunky". We didn't even eat it at all. I ordered the Cassoulet Toulousain. It was decent, but once again, did not meet up to Mr. A's standards and the dish was huge. You would expect portion sizes like that at a local diner, not fine dining. My date ordered the Butter Poached Maine Lobster and it was delicious. Perfectly done and portion was just right."

  • "even after making the reservation well in advance we had to wait for 45 min to get our table. they say while making reaervation that window seats are first come first serve but I could see empty window tables which they said were reserved. To top it all, their staff was like someone had beaten them up to work, I did not see a single pleasant face. Then the food, we ordered the 2 veg dishes on their menu and they were rubbish. For $25 a dish, they gave 4-5 pieces of sorted veggies in one dish and a zuchinni cut in 4 parts wid tomato between it for the other dish. Absolute, waste of money and time. This place has a nice outdoor patio which can only be used when the sun is out, so it might be a good option for brunch with views."

  • "This last weekend was my three year anniversary with my wife, and I went through every site to try to find the place to go to in San Diego, Mister A's definitely called out my name. Want something different, new for a first time try? This place was definitely it for us. Valet parking itself was $7.50 max, which for here and its area its a great deal. Price is up there, but for a special occasion, id say well worth it all. Awesome service, great food, definitely have to try the Mac and Cheese and famous troufled fries! Thank you Mister A's for an awesome night out. And of course, the view was just spectacular!"

  • "I love the food, and it was nice that the waiter accommodated me because I am pregnant and able to substitute the drink on the holiday menu for a non alcoholic version. That was really nice of him and completely unexpected. I did notice that the gratuity was pre-set. I do understand that additional staff is required for holidays and special occasions, but I don't feel that patrons should be obligated to pay a certain level of gratuity. It should be up to the patron's discretion."
