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.

    For a special occasion restaurant we were not expecting and outstanding experience, however we were entirely wrong. The setting, food and service were beyond our expectation. We would recommend Bertrand at Mister A's for that special event or dinner. Expensive but worth it.

    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.

    There were 4 of us for dinner to celebrate a birthday. The place has some of the best views in town and this night did not disappoint. 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.

    The service, food quality, views, and staff are all top notch at Mister A's. When in San Diego we always make an evening of having dinner at Mister A's. There are many choices in San Diego but Mister A's should be at the top of your list. A classic dining experience with old school type of service!

  • Disappointing service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    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.

    My wife and I dined at several restaurants, that were rated highly by Open Table Reviewers,while vacationing in San Diego. Bertrand at Mister A's was by far the best. Every course was excellent but the Honey Mascarpone Cheesecake just might be the best Strawberry dessert I've ever tasted.

    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. Service, ambiance, location, view, food quality///its got it all.

    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!

    It had been nearly a year since my wife and I had dined at Bertrand's at Mr. A's. We decided to indulge ourselves after a busy week and have dinner Friday night with a view of the sunset. We started with Maker's Mark Manhattans that were very nicely prepared. First course for me was the soft shell crab special, for my wife Vichyssoise. Both were delicious and beautifully presented. For our entrees my wife had the 48 hour braised beef short ribs. I had the roasted rack of lamb. The short ribs were delicious without being overly concentrated/heavy. The accompanying vegetables were a treat and nicely presented. The rack of lamb was some of the best I have had. Perfectly seasoned and tender. the sides were great. We won't a year to return.

    We enjoyed the 3 course special meal Mr A's provides for theater goers. The portions were perfect size...not too much food...just the right amount. The presentation of the food is so artistic that one wants to simply view and smell the delicious aromas before taking that first melt-in-your-mouth bite. Our waitress was outstanding and she definitely had her work set out for her as one person in my party managed to make a bit of a mess. The mess was addressed immediately, with finesse. Besides making this part of our theater experience, we plan on eating at Mr. A's when we do not have anywhere else to go so that we can enjoy a long dining experience while looking over the beautiful San Diego skyline and harbor.

    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 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.
