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.

    Mr A's is always good. The food was superb (Dover sole, lamb cooked to perfection). We did complain about the baby beet salad which was really quinoa/olive salad with a few small beet pieces. However this was beautifully taken care of by our waitress when my wife was handed a plate of just roasted baby beets. The only reason it was not 5 stars all round was the slowness of the drinks service - I was well into my lamb before I got my glass of red wine. Not our waitress' fault as the bar was backed up. She was really good. A small quibble in a very enjoyable anniversary evening.

    We came here for our anniversary, and were surprised by how the restaurant was setup. It was on top of a building, roof top restaurant, beautiful scenery. Food was so delicious, drinks were fantastic, the service was great. I could not ask for more for our anniversary. They gave us a free dessert for the occasion.

    We made another trip to Mr. A's for Sunday brunch and this time we both got the chicken and waffles, which were excellent. The service was polite and attentive as always. My only complaint is that they tend to seat all the diners at adjacent tables. Presumably the are using the tables they feel have the best view, but one table separation between diners (when they have the unused tables as they did this day) would really be appreciated in terms of not making us a part of our neighbors conversation.

    We had a beautiful view from our table. Our service was excellent! The food was just fabulous. We shared some appetizers like the Lobster Strudel (YUM!) and the main courses were all great. Wanted to have dessert, but we were all too full. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend. Next time would love to sit outside and enjoy the view up close.

    The atmosphere was fantastic and romantic. If you dine on the patio it's a beautiful view of San Diego. If you are there past 9:50 you will even get a nice firework show courtesy of Sea World during Summer nights. The service was a tad slow at first, however I wasn't annoyed because the service provided was outstanding and the staff were extremely polite & friendly. The rest of the night the service was a nice pace. My date and I appreciated them continuing to turn the heater lamps back on whenever the wind blew it out, which unfortunately for them was fairly often that night. Thanks guys!

    Very nice view and good food, though there is a premium built into the menu prices for the view--I would estimate the premium at 10-15% compared for comparable high-end dining spots. Still, the view is one-of-a-kind and worth it for a special occasion or entertaining visitors.

    We came there for our 8th wedding Anniversay. Out Apps were delicious, we ordered the roasted pork belly with lentils and the lobster bisque. Our main entree is just ok. We ordered the braised short ribs and the paella. Their paella is disappointing. Taste is bland. Then our dessert is creme brûlée and it tasted old. Over-all ambiance is just fantastic and service is excellent.

    Just know, you are going there for the view and the service. The BEST VEIW in the city. Some of the food was very good. The short ribs were fork tender, but the paella was pathetic. (sorry, but the chicken had gristle on it and it was bland for us). The service was friendly and attentive!!! We've dined here a few times before, and never had a bad meal, till this time.

    Took a friend to Bertrand's for a 70th Birthday celebration and it was perfect for the occasion. The view is, of course, spectacular. The food was excellent and the service unsurpassed. It was a Sunday brunch, and surprisingly quiet. More people should enjoy this lovely spot on a Sunday when there's easy, free street parking!

    We dined on the patio on July 4th to get a great view of the fireworks show in the bay. There is not a better view of SD to be found. The menu was prix fixe and for $75/person, a great value. The crab cocktail was meaty, sweet, and very fresh. My wife had the sea bass, and I had tge beef wellington. Both were expertly prepared and cooked to order. Service was spot on and exceptional. Our server attended to our needs in a timely manner, was professional, and made us feel as if we were his only table (despite another table that was very high-maintenance and complained about every aspect of everything the entire evening). We come here a couple of times each year when in town and have always been pleased.

    We learned about Bertrand at Mister A's via a web column on San Diego's best views. Visiting from Alberta, Canada for a birthday weekend, our experience in this restaurant was a wonderful climax to a great weekend! Our server, Wendy, has 17 years of fine dining serving experience and she was a delight. The view is spectacular. An unexpected bonus was getting to see two fireworks displays because of the panoramic vista the venue provides. And of course the food was outstanding.

    Had the "special" New York strip. Pretty good, but for a great steak, go to one of San Diego's excellent steak houses. Can't say that any dish was bad, if fact, they were all pretty good - but not great. Service was quite good. Attentive, but not obtrusive. The view of downtown and the airplanes on landing approach at nearly eye level is definitely the "WOW" here. Can't beat it. Martinis were the weakest we've had ANYWHERE. No way to prove it, but it sure seemed like the gin was watered down. Wouldn't expect anything like that from such an upscale place. Without this issue, I would have given a 4 star overall rating. Used to go to Mr. A's in the 80s. Used to love their steak Dianne. No longer served.

    My brother and sister-in-law from NYC were visiting and we decided to take them to Mister A's. We had been there only two weeks before for our anniversary and loved it, so we thought it would be a good choice. We were not disappointed and neither were our guests. Great view, wonderful, delicious food and fantastic service. Tom served us and was very attentive from the opening arrival to taking pictures on the balcony when we were preparing to leave. It's always fun to discover a wonderful, go to restaurant when you have lived in a city for many years. Our only regret is that we didn't discover Mister A's sooner! But we will be back knowing what we know.

    The view and service are the best. The prices are not out of line for the level of service. The food is better than what you find at most top end restaurants. The prices are only for those that can afford it. Plan ahead and expect sticker shock. The view is the only reason to dine here as it is the best in Southern California. The view compares with the Space Needle in Seattle, Vancouver Tower in Vancouver, Canada and the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage.
