Of course the view was the best part, thank you!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gift that Keeps on GivingI've been going to this restaurant infrequently for many years mainly do to the fact that I live out of state. Always enjoyed my experience with food, service and views. You never know why all the stars line up on any particular evening but Mister A's hit a grand slam tonight. All our dishes could not have been better from starters to entrees. Service was spot on and professional. For that special occasions you will not be disappointed selecting this house.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!Fabulous food and excellent service.

Phenomenal. From the valet to exiting the entire service made you feel like royalty. Not to mention the food was amazing, the view just topped it off. Getting to see planes land and the ocean, it is definitely a romantic dinner or if you're trying to impress anyone. By far best restaurant I've been to and the price is worth it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever FailsAlways dependable to be good food, nice atmosphere and pleasant, professional staff and service.
George especially welcomed our luncheon experience and made it memorable without being cloying.
Many thanks to all there for being so good.
Be respectful and dress well and behave with consideration for others.
Thanks!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the moneyI try to go out to eat with my girlfriend at a top-dollar spot once every month or two. Bertrand at Mister A's definitely qualifies as a top dollar spot - I spent a little over $200 after tip for the two of us (4 drinks, 2 apps, 2 entrees). But the service was spectacular, the view was amazing, the atmosphere was romantic, and the food was good.
The food should be the cornerpiece of every restaurant and I have been to similarly priced places that present flavors which blew my mind. The items we had didn't quite do that, but the food was fresh, hot, delicious, and packed with flavor. Consistently excellent quality but nothing that put it over the top to "I have never had anything this good before." Nevertheless, we'll be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service is so GREAT. FoodThe service is so GREAT. Food Awesome. Totally recommended. But bring money.. is a little bid expensive.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent outside to look at viewWent outside to look at view and have a cocktail. Several people outside at tables, but no

The food is perfect, the service is the best, and view is amazing. Did I mention the service? The best. Friendly, genuine, and efficient. They have never let me down. It is on the pricey side, but not unreasonable and I definitely felt I got a great evening for my money. Looking forward to my return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceTop-notch service. Servers and other employees were on top of the ball. Waters were always topped off. Dishes were always cleared. We were never left wanting.
The girlfriend said it was the best lobster and the nicest dinner she has ever had.
My food was about average. Nothing stood out as amazing. The black tiger shrimp cocktail appetizer was better than my main course.
Great place for ambiance, a view, drinks and appetizer, but the main courses were average.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I hadn't beenMy husband and I hadn't been at Mister A's for over 20 years. We were not disappointed. Our hotel front desk associate receommended the lamb chops and they were excellent. We enjoyed the soups as well. Spinach for me and Lobster bisque for my husband.
Many couples having a romantic Saturday night dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Place for Romantic DiningMy girlfriend and I came here for a romantic night to celebrate her 1 month vacation in the states (she's from Japan.)

I ordered the ribeye/filet duo and the filet was the best filet I've ever had in my life. My husband loved the whole lobster. Also your fries were the best I've ever had. The view was fantastic and service was impeccable. We will definitely be back and I highly recommended you to our friends. Thank you4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife here for ourI took my wife here for our first wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. The staff was prompt and made you feel comfortable, even if you were not used to such a swanky restaurant. The view is amazing, and afterwards we wandered outside to look over the railing at all of San Diego. I would come back here in a heartbeat.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest San Diego VenueExcellent service to complement the exquisite food. Mister A's exceeded our high expectations and turned a celebration into a memorable event. Expect to spend time here enjoying the view, the ambiance, and the dining experience.
The only caveat is the wine list is soft for such a high-quality venue. I recommend bringing your own bottle if wine makes the meal for you. Their choices are of medium quality for the price, and especially mediocre compared to the quality of the food.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulous! WeThe food was fabulous! We ate on the terrace on a most beautiful Easter afternoon. Absolutely perfect! Our waiter, on the other hand, not so much. He forgot several drink orders and/or got them wrong. He did comp quite a bit though, so that made up for it.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter Brunch!Had a wonderful brunch on Easter outside overlooking the downtown harbor and airport. The weather was perfectly sunny and the service was excellent. Absolutely nothing to complain about especially on a busy holiday such as Easter. They offered a prefix menu and everything was cooked to perfection. Definitely would come back to enjoy the view and try out their happy hour on the patio.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCame for the pre-fixe EasterCame for the pre-fixe Easter brunch, first time to Mister A's - we'll definitely be back! The service was outstanding and so was the food. Not to mention the view!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food in a beautifulWonderful food in a beautiful room. Spectacular views. Will definitely return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFellas, this is my secretFellas, this is my secret weapon when taking a girl out to 'Woo' & 'Wow' her.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI would have given it 5 starsI would have given it 5 stars for Ambiance except for the slightly slipping standards of dress. I have noticed that the requirements for "appropriate attire required" have dipped over the years. We rode up the elevator with a group of men all wearing jeans and casual shirts. Several of the ladies were also wearing jeans. It is a bit sad that in such a beautiful dining room and with such lovely service that patrons can't make a bit more of an effort to get dressed up.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was good. chef takesfood was good. chef takes very good care of you. quality of food is great too...
some dishes were hit and miss but the chef's attention to quality and detail of each and every dish is superb!
but what really takes your breathe away is the view. the view of downtown and the airport at night is what really gets the night going.
parking was difficult to find at first but if you keep driving around the building, there is a sign for parking.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautifulIt was our 14th Anniversary celebration and Mr A's made it memorable. It has to have one the best dining experiences ever! The staff went out of their way to make our night special. The food melted in your mouth! I loved the Mac and cheese and the bread was heavenly! We had Mediterranean Paella and the Pork Belly pave it was wonderful and for dessert we had Creme Brulee and they even sent complimentary Anniversary cookies. The whole evening was magical from the view to food I loved everything. Thank you Mr.A's for making my Anniversary so unforgettable.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food, ambianceExceptional food, ambiance and overall experience. Each course was perfectly proportioned and very delicious. I highly recommend their venison or their duck! The view was beautiful as well- able to look out over the city to the bay. A few planes came in to land while we were eating and they flew right through our view. It was a wonderful evening. We will be back!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMwe celibrated my mom's 78thwe celibrated my mom's 78th birthday, it could not been a better night. The food, the atmosphere and the service made it a special night. Thanks and will be back next time in San Diego!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, wine and service!From the moment we entered the entire staff made us feel welcome and special. Our window table view was spectacular. The host, waiter and servers were attentive and friendly, but not bothersome. The food was excellent, as was the wine list. This is a fantastic place for any group to celebrate a special occaision, or for a couple to enjoy a very romantic dinner. We will definitely return the next time we are in San Diego.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived for our reservation,We arrived for our reservation, and we're promptly seated at a table with an amazing view of downtown San Diego. The wait staff was absolutely wonderful––prompt, courteous, never hovered, but there when we needed them. The courses flowed seamlessly. The venison loin was divine, and the duck was very tasty, though my boyfriend was apprehensive about the huckleberry sauce. Dessert was the Meyer lemon layered cake with lavender scented cream. Delicious without being heavy. We'd definitely go back to Mister A's.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated a family member'sCelebrated a family member's retirement and the service was great. It was a big noisy in the restaurant that night but it was also a Friday night.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is a San DiegoThis restaurant is a San Diego gem! We can't wait to return and try out more of the delectable items on the menu. The city views are breathtaking, especially when the jets are coming in for a landing! After dinner, continue the magic with a drive thru nearby Balboa Park when you leave.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been dining at Mr.We have been dining at Mr. A's since the 70's. This is our second experience since Bertrand took over and it has only improved. Each member of our party was highly pleased with every course. We ordered 3 seafood and one duck entrees; all were excellent. The winelist is extensive yet not imposing. But the service was truly remarkable: our busboy was more polished than some headwaiters I have recently encountered, and the captain was ever concerned with our enjoyment. When my wife commented on her chablis, the maitre d' dropped by and discussed white burgundies for several minutes without ever seeming pompous. This establishment brings real understanding to the term, "client centered".3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI travel weekly all over theI travel weekly all over the United States for my job and have to eat at many different places. This venue/restaurant was by far the best experience I have ever had at a dining establishment. I took my girlfriend, now fiance~, there for her birthday and to propose to her and the staff was exceptional on making sure it was special for both of us.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
