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.

    Our dining experience was exceptional. the waiter was very personable, the veal entree was mouth watering and the desert of strawberry crumble was ooo lala. Oh and I mustn't forget the amazing panoramic views of downtown and the bay. Mr. A's offers everything needed for the perfect romantic night out. We would defiantly go back and have mentioned to friend about our good experience that night.

    Service was snoody and awful. I read online about the service being uptight, and decided to try it anyway. They were right. The waiter was useless, food way over priced. The view was priceless however. After our $150 meal, we ate again later that night. This is a resturaunt to try once and only once, you'll see why. Just ridiculously over expensive for what you get.

We live in San Diego, and this is one of our most favorite "special occasion" venues. Thank you!

Thanks again for a great night Brandon.

    This is the first time that I have ever responded negatively to a dining experience. We've been to Mr. A's several times in the past and typically have had pleasant dining experiences. Regrettably our most recent visit was truly unacceptable. The drinking glasses were dirty (NOT spotted, had pieces of food stuck to them) and our meals were WAY overdone. As discussed with our server, we had theatre tickets and didn't have time to send the food back. Additionally, cell phones from neighboring diners were ringing throughout the meal. My daughter of 15 rated the restaurant a 3 out of 10. We won't return to Mr. A's

    We were a couple dinning, however we were seated in an area with a large table and a four top that had children at the tables. Fortunately the children were relatively quiet, but they were allowed to walk around. In the future I would suggest the restuarant place the tables with children away from other guests. When I go out and spend in excess of $100 per person I expect to have totally peaceful environment.

    It was a special anniversary dinner and all was wonderful except the wrong meal was brought to my wife. The waiter apologized and acknowledged it was his fault. But she had to wait and watch me eat my dinner while her replacement entree was prepared. This type of mistake should not occur at a restaurant of this caliber.

    It was very enjoyable. We arrived early and our table wasn't ready and had to wait right until our reservation time. They allowed us to wait out near the bar/outside area but no one attended to us while we waited. The birthday dinner request was carried out efficiently. The food was excellent and could rival several fine dining cuisines. It was a bit pricey, but it's very true, you get what you pay for. The skyline of San Diego was very impressive. Service was on the slow side, but all in all, I will be returning when my next paycheck arrives.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 5/29/2008
    Kobe beef flat iron steak was recommended by the server as his favorite, but was tough, lacking in marbling and had uninspired combinations. Oysters baked on the half shell were foul. We shared the lobster bisque, which was decent, actually, but nothing in comparison to Julia Child's. My dining companion suffered through the Oregon Bay Shrimp cocktail, which was heavily sauced to no avail, and then tried a Bass dish, I believe. The view was amazing, however; but the meal itself is best left forgotten.

The views are amazing and we truly appreciate being able to wait at the bar for 20 min. to be seated at a window table facing the sunset! Thank you so much for the outstanding service, food, view and for the special plate brought out to us that read "Happy Anniversary." We will be back one day - we are from Los Angeles and will stop by when we have our next get-away.

    Service was good, but tends to be a bit impersonal because each course is served by a different person with no or little involvement of the person who took order. Rather than a "captain/waiter" style of service it appears to come off as "captain/busboy" service. This needs some attention so as provide better interaction between service personnel and guests

    The service was top notch, the food delicious and the consideration shown to my husband and I was terrific. We were greatly pleased with our dining experience there overall. The only disappointment felt that night was that when the restaurant called me to reschedule my reservation (made months in advance) because of a private party booking and mentioned that they would "take care of me"...this simply did not occur. Other than that, nothing but praises do I have for this establishment.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    We had a very enjoyable dinner at this restaurant. I was disappointed that the waiter opened a second bottle of wine and poured without asking anyone at the table if they wanted more wine, especially me (since I was paying the bill). Not a drop of that second bottle of wine was consumed and I was left paying $50 for it. I realize this isn't a high price for a bottle of wine, but I would have not ordered it. I didn't dispute the charge as I was entertaining customers; raising a fuss would have been inappropriate. Other than the wine mishap, the service was excellent.

What a view, and the meal was extremely good. Our waiter, Jarred, was outstanding, a consummate expert. Everything was perfect, but this restaurant was upper class. As a redneck from Oklahoma, I did feel a little out of place. Overall though, it was a good meal and very romantic. Recommended for a special occasion such as anniversary, date night, etc.

    With spectacular vista and close proximity to convention center this is the kind of upscale restaurant that often becomes a specialist in pretentious food at inflated prices. Instead, we discovered a restaurant serious kitchen that produced excellent food, professional service, and (yes) spectacular views. The wine list was pricey but high quality and offered some excellent choices for those not on an expense account.

    Our table was ready for us at our reservation time of 7:00 p.m. and the view of the harbor and sunset was wonderful. Service was a little slow to start, but ended very nicely with a great wine recommendation from our waiter. The food was impeccable. The black truffle infused macaroni and cheese starter was delicious. My dining partner ordered a beef tenderloin that was topped off with a gorgonzola sauce. I had a few bites and was amazed at the perfect color (medium rare) and was floored at how tender and tasty it was. My choice was the local sea bass. I ate the entire thing along with my asparagus in hollandaise sauce. The sea bass was topped with a sauce containing morel mushrooms which I had never tried before. Phenomenal. THANKS!

But they never brought the food back (and in our elated state we didn't notice until hours later ;-) Bummer too, because it was fantastice :p Other than that oversight, this was a spactacular experience.
