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.

    We arrived about 5:15 for one of the most spectacular sunsets imaginable from our ringside seat. Food, service, ambiance, were excellent. Our lady server was knowledgeable about wines and presented special dining options well. Before we left the building I received a cell phone call advising I had left my credit card behind. Whew!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    I was hoping for a fabulous experience. Made reservations early, requested something special for a 60th birthday celebration, read all the reviews...sounded great! I am from Seattle, so a true foodie and really wanted something special for my significant other's special day. We were unfortunately fairly unimpressed. The atmosphere was good, the service quite good, but the food was simply average. We ordered the lobster...it came on corn cakes...had a sauce on it that was forgettable and the lobster, sauce and corn cakes just didn't seem to mesh together. The desert was great....but of course, having requested something special, and then having been asked to re-confirm my reservation and again confirming a special occasion...there was absolutely nothing done by the restaurant...so my question is, why ask 3 times if you won't do anything anyway???? All in all, I would not select this restaurant for a special occasion again...but maybe for a business lunch.

    Amazing customer service and was an overall great experience. I took my girlfriend here for our 8 year anniversary and we had a wonderful time. We sat on the patio for dinner, which overlooked the city. The heat lamps keep you comfortable, and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and reserving the patio at night.

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    It was our first experience at mister A's the other night for my wife and I's 4 year wedding anniversary. The ambiance was nice, our waiter was knowledgable, the food was exceptional and everyone seemed to be as accommodating as possible. I will say, my initial impression of the restaurant based upon our dinner confirmation call gave me the feeling like it was privilege for me to be dining that evening at the facility. Not saying this is entirely a bad way to represent a company but for my initial contact I definitely didn't get that warm and welcome feeling. That being said, when we were greeted in person everyone seemed pleasant and inviting. I hope this feedback will help customer retention.

    Perfect night! We celebrated our 25th Anniversary and they provided us with a fun dessert with that spelled out in chocolate. Beautiful clear night, view was great. Such a treat to eat where the service was wonderful, food great and so peacefully quiet. When did quiet become a negative to the dining out experience? We will be back to checkout the patio which looked spectacular on a warmer night!

    I had made this reservation several months in advance and specified a window table. Two days prior I was called to confirm the booking and again specified that I had overseas guests in town who were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and would want a window table. When we were seated, we were taken to a back table right by the waiters ordering system tucked in a corner. No one acknowledged the 40th anniversary or the fact that this was not a window table. We were not asked would you like to wait for a window table or will this table do? Basically when I said I had requested a window table, I was told it is not guaranteed and this is what we have. No apology, no would like to wait for one, no nothing! Total indifference!

    We celebrated the bride to be bachelorette dinner here. It was amazing! All seven of us girls thought the food was delicious, the view was spectacular, and the service was wonderful! The waiters were very attentive and made the bride to be feel very honored! I'm sure they had other tables they were waiting on, but we all felt like we were there only table; we felt very special and taken care of. We could not say enough great things about the food! We had the duck, wild king salmon, the short ribs, ahi tartar, and the Mac and cheese - not one complaint from any of the girls! We all loved it and were talking about how good it was the next day! Please don't change anything about the restaurant; it's perfect!

    Bertrand is a great restaurant, except for our waiter with the strong insistance on his ideas of "proper" food pairings, and the borderline sarcastic remarks that followed. It's unusual to find an older man with B-game etiquette filling in a role that requires an A-game disposition.

    The food, service, and ambience was impeccable. The food was amazing. So many flavors in my mouth. I have the venison chop and my wife had the halibut. Both were cooked to perfection. We did not have to ask for anything. Whatever we thought we wanted just appeared at our table. We had all of our service needs met. The view, of course, was outstanding. We will definitely be back for another visit.

    The service was good, the food was well prepared, presented, and served, and the wine, recommended by our waiter was excellent. We have yet to have a disappointing meal or experience here. The only negative this evening was the presence of a large, loud, well lubricated wedding party whose noisy enthusiasm spilled over into the dining room and made the normally quiet space a bit raucous.

Great wine list and awesome Brunch Bloody Mary's from the bar. Simply 'First Class' service by the staff. Menu pricing average and surprisingly moderate for the location. Outside dining available with 'insane' panoramic views of Downtown, SD Bay, and East County mountains, but with no shade. 5 Star Dining!! I recommend!!

    Even being native San Diegans, my husband and I had never visited Mr. A's before this weekend. We decided it was time and went to celebrate my husband's birthday. I included this information in my Open Table reservation and we were treated to exceptional food and service. I wish we hadn't waited! They even brought him a birthday candle in a wine glass and a beautiful plate with Happy Birthday (and his name spelled correctly) in chocolate. We had a beautiful evening and allowed my 2 young adult sons the honor of dining at Mr. A's with us so they don't have to wait!
