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
  • "Our first visit to San Diego, and our first meal in the city. we chose to sit outside for lunch. the staff were very kind and attentive. the view was amazing and really let us take in the overall sight of the city. our waiter was great (sorry, don't remember his name) - very energetic and fun. professional. only con would be that we were not checked up on as much as we would have liked - possibly because we were one of the few tables seated outside, and it seemed very busy inside (easter weekend). overall, a great restaurant, with amazing views of the city and polite/professional staff. we would go back and recommend to friends."

  • "Bertrand at Mister A's is one of the most amazing, scenic restaurants in San Diego. From the moment you ride up to the rooftop, thr hostess seating you and the waiter serving you, they provide a VIP experience for you. I informed early on that it was my anniversary and wi thout asking, they gave us a plated dessert with writing wishing us a happy anniversary. Dinner at this restaurant will be a memorable experience. Outdoor seating and the view is beautiful! The staff members go above and beyond."

  • "Food and service are unparalleled here. No other restaurant can touch "the standard which everyone goes by." First time I ordered dessert with my lunch. Had the coconut tapioca with dragonberry sorbet. Outstanding!"

  • "The best service I've ever received and the food was also excellent. Definitely a favorite!"

  • "Food and service was great but we wanted to sit on the bar side for the view because I had out of town guests. Most of the tables were empty on that side at our reservation at 5:30pm and we were only going to be able to stay for an hour because of the Padres/Giant game. They wouldn't let us sit there so we were very disappointed!! "

  • "My husband and I went here to celebrate our fifth anniversary. The experience was everything I was hoping for. We had a fantastic corner table by the window, the room was quiet, and the food was excellent. The little tray of tiny dessert treats on the plate that said "Happy 5th Anniversary" was a delightful surprise. I also appreciated that our waiter took our picture without us even having to ask and encouraged us to go outside and enjoy the patio view after we'd finished our meal. Wonderful experience! "

  • "So typical with a really strong ambiance. Weak on food and weak on service. I wonder why owners bank on business with only one of the five required to continue to build a business. Those five are: Great Location Great Food Great Service Fair Pricing Great Ambiance Mr. A's has only one of these. But, for aviation buffs it's still great just to watch the airplanes go by an near eye level."

  • "Exceeded our expectations, went there for our anniversary and everything was wonderful. The service from the captain of the waiters or Maître D was phenomenal and had a great knowledge of wine. The view is beautiful. "

  • "The food was bland and most ingredients did not taste fresh. They charged 3x for a bottle of wine you could buy yourself. Although it has a fantastic view, the food was terrible and I wouldn't recommend this place except for a few drinks."

  • "Our server was fantastic and knew how to read his dining guests and appropriately interact with them. He was very genuine I'm his service and sense of humor was well adjusted to ours. Felt like royalty as different staff came at different times to offer us something, refill water, (very tastefully) let us know specials, and happy to explain any dishes we were served. View is amazing. Watching the planes come in for a landing was very fun. I will definitely return. 5 star dining and worth every penny. Food is delicious and wow factor on presentation. Spruce up and take out your date! Or go with friends. "

  • "My boyfriend and I celebrated his birthday there while I was on a business trip, and it was nothing short of fabulous. The food was delicious (I had the duck, my boyfriend had the lamb, and we shared oyster and lobster strudel appetizers), and the staff was impeccable. They were incredibly generous and made us feel like royalty. This is certainly a must for a special night out or a memorable celebration. When we are back in San Diego, we will definitely come again!"

  • "The most amazing thing here is the views of the city, the ability to sit on a rooftop patio, the sunset, the bay full stop! After being at a 5 star this 4 star seemed far removed from the service we experienced. Orders were slow to be taken, although water was religiously refilled the other drinks were not. The food was unique enough and very tasty while presented very creatively so as to meet the 4 star rating. The only thing that is needed is some more work on the table service which I suspect would vary depending on staff and night to night. Taken together this is one place I would become a regular at."

  • "Everything about Mr A's was great. We had, steak, shrimp, oysters, caesars salad, wine, martinis, specialty drinks, dessert, truffle fries, soup, and more! Everything was top notch. However, where they really shine is the table service. Our server, Tom, was professional, attentive, courteous, and very knowledgable about all the food they serve and he had some great recommendations. It was our anniversary and they brought out a dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate syrup with the most perfect handwriting/calligraphy I have ever seen in my life. We will be back often."

  • "I never find that the food is as impressive as the view, but it's still excellent. The restaurant is perfect for a date. They don't rush you, and there is really no bad seat anywhere. My favorite go-to place for an excellent meal and memorable experience in San Diego."

  • "Excellent service, outstanding view, great food. It's worth spending a bit more at this well managed restaurant, especially for a special dinner, or a dinner with special people. Atmosphere is relaxed for a high end restaurant, but there is nothing casual about how the staff is trained. Did not feel rushed at any time, and felt that we could stay for the entire evening. Best dishes for this evening were the hanger and filet duo, lamb chops, and cassoulet."

  • "Took my wife there for our ten year anniversary. Everything was first class from getting on the elevator to exiting and being greeted at the front desk. We were seated at the window with a great view of the city and the bay. Service was excellent. A minor glitch with wine. I ordered a 2009 Merlot and was brought a 2010. They apparently were out, so I ordered a different one. Pay attention to what is brought to your table. The food was very good. I wish the meat portions were a bit larger like Morton's. The steaks could of used more seasoning when cooked. Simple salt and pepper. However, the overall experience was worth it. I would differently go back."

  • "I have loved Mr. A's for a long time. It's pricey, however the food is truly wonderful and worth it, as is their wine list (voted one of the best in the WORLD). Your back drop at night are the lights of incoming planes at San Diego Airport - they fly right past the large wall of windows. The view is spectacular and their patio (on windless evenings) can feel like you're floating hundreds of feet off the ground. Whenever we're in San Diego, Mr. A's is a must. For two, you'll spend (with a few glasses of wine) between $120-160 for a memorable dinner, however you won't mind at all."

  • "Exceptional views of the city from virtually every table. The service was quite attentive and the waiter was very knowledgeable. For an appetizer I had ravioli stuffed with dover sole, an excellent dish. I had the venison special for dinner; my colleague had paella, which she loved. The venison was perfectly cooked. It came with a superb pasta accompaniment and cheese dumplings, which fell flat (it was the only part of the meal that disappointed). Dessert was stellar; I had the semifreddo."

  • "Mr A's is a great restaurant but, despite a host of staff, the service left a lot to be desired. I was also disappointed with the table allocation having specifically requested a view table. South west located tables offer the best views over the city and bay. I had visitors in town from Europe and was allocated a table in the north east part of the restaurant."

  • "The day ,time, weather and our 42nd wedding anniversary day peaked as we entered the main dining room. Expectations of what a good table should be were met and our meals evolved into conversation and rememberances of life as we have lived it. Mary Ann was Queen for the Day as she had never been so impressed with the mannerism and attentive service that staff gave us. To rate Mr A's we gave it a A+ with a Holy Card and gold star! Thank You, ........................Mr. D"

  • "I read all the reviews before going here for the first time and wasn't sure what to expect in terms of food and service because of some of them. The service was impeccable, we never had to ask for anything, the staff were very courteous and friendly and the food was great. I had the beet salad with quinoa and the Lobster poached in butter and my husband had the Caesar salad and paella. Both were absolutely wonderful and artfully presented. The view was spectacular. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant even though it was a good 50 miles away from us. I would love to come here for Mother's Day brunch!"
