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.

    My overall dining experience was fantastic. The view was amazing and Wendy was a phenomenal waitress with helpful tips about the menu and wine list. However, the mushroom risotto was a little too salty and the swordfish was a little bland.

    Mr. A's has spectacular views of San Diego for miles. On this particular day of our visit, the weather was absolutely gorgeous and it was a clear day. The food was excellent, and the waiting staff was attentive. This was a more high-end place, so the group I was with lacked the "decorum" of the other guests there, and I think the waiting staff took notice. The web-site was not kidding when they stated there is a strict dress code. While I was waiting to be seated, there was a large group of men who arrived, and a few were wearing jeans, and some wearing sandals. The manager was quick to inform them of the strict dress code, and they men not in suitable clothing had to go change their attire. Overall, this was a great place. Very romantic!

    My husband and I went here for the first time for dinner for my birthday. We had 7:45pm reservations, but got there 20 mins early. Our table wouldn't be ready until closer to our reservation time, so we were taken to the bar and got a drink while we waited. Sunset was just beginning, and the view was stunning. (Great photo op.) The drink was also good. We received perfect service and very delicious food (escargot, filet mignon, & duck) and wine. The view of the city at night is also spectacular. We had a fantastic time and will return for future special occasions.

    Can't beat the view, the menu choices and service. Best steak ever. Pricey bar, wine selection and menu in general. Easy to park in garage below(use valet parking... Cheap and excellent). They do have a very reasonable, pre-theater menu if you want to eat between 5-6 PM and have tickets in hand. Planning on trying that soon.

    Most places don't take reservations - Bertand at Mr. A's does. Brunch starts at 10:00 - a little late for me but it was fine. We were the first people there and the only one's for a while. The menu has a lot of lunch items - we would have liked more variety of breakfast but what we had was wonderful. Drinks were expensive - $12. We started out with a sampling of their homemade donuts...heavenly - Maple Bacon and Lemon Meringue - Little round puffs of billowy dough. My husband had the pork belly/sweet potato hash with slaw (I think fruit would have been better). I had the Croque Madame - delicious and not too heavy, someone also had the pork belly eggs benedict. Everything was fresh, hot and delicious. Impeccable Service.

The staff here is top notch and always were attentive without being intrusive. The food was absolutely incredible, the best I have had in a very long time. This will be a regular stop when in San Diego for sure!!!!

    After the reviews I've read, I came into this restaurant expecting staff who would act as if they were too high and mighty to acknowledge a young couple. Maybe it's because my girlfriend and I were well dressed or maybe it's just that others had a bad day to foreshadow their negative experience at Mr A's. There was a minor mix up the moment I arrived. I had asked for outdoor seating on my reservation and called the day of to confirm, but was told the tables were all full. So when we arrived we were seated inside. I immediately asked for outdoor seating when I saw that several tables were available and was quickly moved. The view is like no other. Down town skyline with planes coming down for landing. The food is on point. Out of characters

    Bertrand was everything I expect in a fine dining restaurant. The ambience was elegant but energetic and high-class without being too stuffy or formal. The waiters were classy but very down to earth as well and helped make the experience very enjoyable. The food was what you expect at a fine dining restaurant–fairly small proportions of amazing tasting food that looks as good as it tastes. We started off with escargot and seared scallops which were amazing. The garlic, parsley butter on the escargot was so good that we used it all up on our bread. My short ribs were packed with amazing flavor and melted in my mouth. Oh and by the way, the view of downtown San Diego and the bay is incredible.

    Came for brunch to celebrate mine and my girlfriend's 3rd anniversary. While the food was beyond our expectations, our server definitely left much to be desired. It took more than 15 minutes to get our drink order, another 15 before another server came to appologize for the wait and that our drinks would be on the way. Our server seemed flustered and distracted, as if our presence was a neusance. I noticed other parties receiving much better service, and the other servers who helped us were clearly on top of their game. I would not complain about this if it were not for the price: $180 for two dishes and 4 drinks. I expect much better in terms of service. I will be returning, tho i hope someone receives this feedback.

    I recently went there for our anniversary, and they were outstanding! I booked through Open Table and let them know that it was our anniversary and requested a table outside. They called me in advance and said that would be fine. The waiter was very friendly and courteous. While the prices were somewhat higher than your average restaurant, the experience is worth it! The portions were great as we were full yet didn't take anything home. They even gave us a chocolate platter at the end with icing saying "Happy Anniversary". I didn't tell them to do that, but boy did I look good! I wouldn't go every weekend, but definitely on a special occasion!

    Mr. A's is a place to go to for a special occasion where you want to dress up and pay over the top prices for basically just good food. You can't beat the view and my suggestion would be to go there for either lunch or their Happy Hour menu and enjoy the scene. Our server was great though - very professional and attentive

    Wonderful view, terrific food (although stay away rom the duck kinda dry and tasteless). Service was spotty other tables seemed to get more attention (did I know our waiter? Do I owe him money? ) anyway overall a very good experience but really expensive. Would have been ok except the service for our table wasn't matching the price paid.

    Bertrand's at Mr. A's is perhaps the best view restaurant in all of San Diego. It is also one of the best restaurants for quality food and to-quality service. It is ideal for either business or personal dining. Could not speak more highly. Even the parking attendant had the elevator waiting for us as we approached. Its as good as it gets.

    Arrived for our open table reservation, and was asked to sit and wait. We then asked if they had a bar and we were directed to it. Patrons had gotten up, 6!empty stools, Bar loaded with glasses which the bartender failed to remove. Stood at the bar for 10 minutes ( we were the only ones there) never served or was the bar cleaned. Came to take us to our table and there were 6 empty tables all set, but we had waited 15 minutes at 8pm. Didn't receive rolls, but sliced bread as they ran out of rolls. I wouldn't waste my money, the only good thing about this restaurant is the view!
