Bertrand at Mister A's
Perfect Anniversary DinnerWe were celebrating our anniversary and this was the perfect place to do it. Valet your car in rye garage and the elevator goes right up to the restaurant. We had an 8pm reservation and it was a perfect time to watch the city change from day to night. We were seated about 10 minutes after we arrived at a fabulous corner window table with an amazing view of downtown. Staff are well versed in fine dining service and we never needed to ask for anything. Started off with delicious cocktails and dinner was just wonderful. The duck is perfectly cooked, and the truffled Mac and cheese was to die for! Staff brought a special dessert for our anniversary. Overall this is a perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion in style.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodThe two steak duo (can't remember what it's called on the menu) is amazing! (It's a petite ribeye and petite filet with little wild mushrooms.)6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining with a view!Very convenient parking. I would recommend stating the entrance for valet parking. The food was great and the views are stunning!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a great spot to meet upWas a great spot to meet up with family and friends to catch up. Watching the planes come in was very exciting. Door was great as was the service.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMEMORABLE DINNERMy wife and I had a memorable experience on the occasion of our 52d wedding anniversary, June 10. Service was professional, attentive, and friendly. Our dinners were delicious and the view of San Diego incomparable. Cocktails on the balcony was a nice touch, but ladies may be more comfortable with a sweater. The wine list had a good selection, both in price and types.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service asGreat food and service as always, pricey, fantastic views.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest View in San DiegoMister A's has always had the best view in the city, but as Bertrand's, it is matched by the food and service. We really enjoy brunch and at Bertrand we can enjoy a less crowded experience because they do both Saturday and Sunday Brunch. The service is phenomenal and the food is wonderful.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing view, amazing food!Immediately, the view gets your attention. However, the food and service actually overshadow the view. Pricey, but worth it.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA definite must!A Napa quality restaurant in San Diego - great wine list, awesome food selection and superb service. Well, except from the hostesses. They lack a bit of personality. But the rest of the staff made up for it. Especially the bussers - they were on it. Every last bite of food was delectable. You know it's a good meal when you spend the vast majority of the conversation talking about what you're eating! We recommend the asparagus app (lightly grilled with a romesco sauce). For entrees the seared Maine scallops with an olive & lemon risotto, and crispy brocolini (very lightly fried tempura style), and the Copper River salmon with a bean medley& spinach. The salmon is cooked to perfection. Try the creme brûlée or snickers for dessert! Delectable6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only turnoff was the fussMy only turnoff was the fuss the manager made over a regular that clearly was there with a lady of the night. There were families there with young children celebrating graduation and yet a window table was reserved for a man and a woman who was scantly clad and spent most of her time making sure her breasts were tucked in . The manager came over several times even hugging the customer. Brought the classiness of the place down a bit.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGetting ThereThe distance between the entrance to the building and the elevator is long, there is an inclined floor a part of the way, and a large lobby. There were no handrails or safety features of any kind anywhere. I was exhausted by the time I got there. Once there, you will see the best view of anywhere in San Diego. The food merited the prices. Did I mention the view? The host was very attentive helping me get around. The meal met our expectations, but what I'll remember is the Bataan walk between 5th Avenue to the elevator. It's a shame, 'cause it's not the restaurant's fault.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time, our servesWe had a great time, our serves was awesome. Always attentive to our needs. Great Team!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOldGlobeMatDinnerAfterService was outstanding and the food incredible. The view was lovely for June 1 but with a cool breeze. We will be back for wine and dessert on the patio. Would recommend to all for special occasions and romance.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA night at Mr A'sEverything was outstanding. the only thing that could have been better would to have sat on the other side with a view of the airport, although we were sat in a window corner. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPicture PerfectWent for dinner before my Prom at the Prado.. We got a nice view window. The service and food was great. I was running late and when I called to push my reservation back a half hour they were happy to help.
Perfect kick off to a night I will never forget! Thank you.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best restaurantStill the best restaurant in San Diego. George & his wonderful team gave us the usual 5 star treatment. It's always a treat & a pleasure to dine @ Bertrand's.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experienceMy fiancé and I have been here before and came this time with our friend to ask her to be the maid of honor in our wedding. They made the night perfect and everything was fantastic. It is kind of pricey, but more than worth it!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always everything was outstandinAs always everything was outstanding. We can't think of any way to improve the evening.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time. Won't be the last!I have lived in San Diego for 2 years and the biggest mistake I have made in that time is waiting so long to try Bertrand at Mister A's. The food is great. The staff is great. The view cannot be beat. I will be back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest night of allWe didn't really know what to expect, and after a day on the beach we almost let the long standing reservations slip be; boy are we glad we pulled it together to have one of the best meals I've ever had.
Scallops were amazing, seasoned perfectly and cooked just right. Everyone at our table was smiling and clapping every time the waiter poured wine or brought more food.
One of my biggest pleasures in life is good, yummy food; freshly made with care and respect for the food and the person who will be enjoying it.
Well done chef!!!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visitEverything at Bertrand's is exceptional; the food, the service and the view. We will dine here each time we return to San Diego.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood But not worth the money.Good upscale restaurant. Quiet ambience with beautiful view of San Diego skyline if you get good seats. Food is average but good list of wine if you are a avid wine drinker.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery aspect of the dinnerEvery aspect of the dinner was good. Great special occassion.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic viewGreat view overlooking San Diego airport. Best time to go would be before the sunsets.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA NIGHT TO REMEMBER!An amazing restaurant! Incredible views, very competent & professional (yet personable) wait staff, excellent wine, and OUTSTANDING food (presented perfectly). So very glad we went .... WELL worth the price!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of San DiegoYou have not seen San Diego until you have dined at Mr. A's. Besides being an institution of fine dining, Mr. A's is also known for having the best view of any restaurant in the city. The menu is always varied but somewhat concise. There normally is something for everyone. I have dined there four times now, three times for dinner and once for lunch. I have not been disappointed yet. Everything I and my guests have ordered was prepared excellently, as described on the menu. The dishes are presented attractively and the service is above average. Although it is a somewhat 'old school' establishment, it is appropriate to show up at Mr. A's in anything from casual to formal dress. Prices are moderate to expensive but not excessive.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Anniversary SpotWe celebrated our 39th Anniversary at a beautiful table. The service was impeccable and the food was delectable. The Maitre D' even asked if I would like a black napkin to match my black pants. The view of downtown, Point Loma, Coronado and the planes landing at Lindbergh were outstanding.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service with a fantastic viewgreat view of San Diego! I recommend getting there around sunset, as the view is exceptional. Food is also excellent, with a variety of options to choose from.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all about the view. ItIt's all about the view. It was amazing. The service was impeccable. The bartender made the best "slightly dirty" martini. Food was very good. Loved the evening. We will definitely go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful!Had a wonderful time celebrating with son and daughter-in-law for their 1st wedding anniversary! the food was fabulous, great attention to service and the view is magnificent...would highly recommend! Going back for brunch next time!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Anniversary DayWhen I arrived at Mister A's was like the icing on the cake complete and sweet ,could not ask for a better restaurant, great service ,great view, and great tasty food.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our friends from outWe took our friends from out of state. The wine was very good and the food outstanding. Our service was excellent! Our waiter was very alert to our needs without being bothersome. He sensed we were there to visit with friends over a leisurely dinner and never rushed us or made us feel hurried. We will be back!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Experience!This was our first time dining at Mr. A's. It won't be the last!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view and restaurantNot only is the food excellent, but the service is of superior quality also - no fuss, friendly and professional.

As always the place is spectacular, view, clean, Vee professional staff, everything. Our server was John and made great wine recommendations. The food again was to die for. A must place for a intimate date night or even a very special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellent food, service, ambience and views. A first rate experience in San Diego.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was amazing except...i had made a reservation for 630 for my girl's bday. i made it for that time so we could have a sunset view during the duration of the dinner. when one walks in to the place it faces south and there is an east dining side and a west dining side. we get seated in the east wing where NOBODY IS SITTING. the whole population of the restaurant is on the west side. the sun is slowly setting over the ocean, its all wonderful and alive, and here we are ..feeling like we are in quarantine in an empty room. so i checked..there were tables open. why didnt they ask us if we minded missing out on the famous view of this place? idk. it had me biting my lip..my girl insisted i didn't mention to the staff. other than that, it was a greatttttt experience!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest burger everTruly amazing burger, worth it even at the $20 per burger price tag.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view!Very good service and delicious food. Of course the view was the best part, thank you!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA special occasion dinner--priceyService is excellent. Makes you feel special. View is amazing. Menu is good.

For special occasions given the price.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view everWe had mark as our server. 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 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 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 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 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
