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.

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Service, presentation and quality all meet high expectations. Just the right amount of attention. Well educated service team. Wine list was diverse in offerings and price without being so extensive that it was too much to absorb. Everything was just the right balance."

  • "I'm so happy we picked Mister A's to celebrate our Anniversary. This restaurant is a San Diego staple, the view is the best in San Diego (in my opinion), the food is phenomenal, and ambiance is romantic. I would highly recommend any looking to celebrate a special occasion keep Mister A's an open option...you won't regret it!"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. In truth, the staff doted on us. And the view is spectacular, especially after sunset. If you come away from here disappointed I'd be given to concluding you were looking to be so."

  • "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."

    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "Both San Diego locals from way back we had never been to Mister A's. We decided to go for it for our anniversary and we were not disappointed! My husband had the short ribs and he said they were the best he'd ever had. I had the salmon and a wonderful salad that was on special. The view was outstanding as was the service. We enjoyed our evening."

  • "Mister A's, rings a nastolgic vibe through out the financial district. I recently recommended a Friend if mine meet me there we had some catching up and celebrating to do... We arrived under-ground via the valet entrance, were greeted by a hostess once we arrived through the elevator, silly me we were a week early for reservation (my bad), as they often do they flawlessly took care and sat us down 5 minutes after arrival 6:15ish. Had mushroom risotto with manchego was okay lacked acidity. Also we split the meat duo was phenominal even though my friend prefers well done, and I'm a rare kind of girl was amazing well done. That's a huge compliment. Lemon mousse--- yummy I've had every dessert there this one was best! Drink- manhattan"

  • "Waited 5 minutes at the table for a menu to come. Rock hard bread 5 minutes later. Lobster bisque-horrible. Waited for removal of plates and waited for check then waited another 5 minutes for pick up of check. Outrageous prices for blah food. Gorgeous view."

  • "A once-great San Diego restaurant, it was sad to see this classic institution on its knees. The food was most disappointing with small portions, indifferent presentation and an over-all sense of stinginess. For a first course two of us ordered the beet salad which came with quinoa. For the main course two ordered the lobster which also came with quinoa! The lobster portion was small and exuded a milky liquid into the strangely paired quinoa. The sauce was sparse and did not complement the luke-warm lobster. The birthday dessert for the honoree was a paper-wrapped piece of caramel and a piece of candy-covered nuts. Had a known it would be so meagre I would have ordered a birthday cake for her in advance. I cannot recommend a visit."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Demanding a credit card for a table reservation is what the policy of gas stations. Unacceptable to distrust your guests that way. Requesting a window table for our anniversary and being placed in the back of the room was also a disappointment for someone who has been a guest for the last 20 years. Adding almost 20% as gratuity to the bill is another rude and greedy detail which turns customers off. We were 5 in our party and this rude custom is usually performed for parties of 6 or more. However, service, food and the view is still outstanding."

If you get Will`s section, ask to be moved, arrogance has a name, Will. Then, Christopher, saved us, made us laugh, and made us feel truly special. Our thanks to Christopher, and Mr.Wonderful."
