Foggy evening and the view was still lovely. Enjoyed watching all the planes go by and the heaters kept us warm. We’d definitely return!

When your sat around a corner where the view isn't what you expected, yet other tables where the view was what you expected were empty you kinda have to question it. The food wasn't cooked to our liking especially for the price. Would not return..

The staff was exceptionally hospitable, the view is unmatched, and the food was absolutely amazing! The balcony seating provided a wonderful view of the city, bay, and sunset which paired perfectly with the decadence of the food. It was a perfect escape from this last year of COVID woes, and the staff and setup are very COVID conscious as well.

Exquisite meal, celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. The view was stunning and unobstructed due to outdoor exclusive dining. The cold was not a problem, the heat lamps provided ample comfort. Will definitely be returning when in San Diego again.

One of the most amazing experiences I’ve had ! All the way from the view of downtown and the bay which are breathtaking! To the amazing food brought to our table. I brought my girlfriend from Washington to the restaurant so she can see how beautiful San Diego is and well she loved it couldn’t get over the view. We ordered the mac and cheese which was delicious and creamy to follow we had the famous truffle fries which were amazing as well nice and crispy and for our main course we had the 8oz filet mignon cooked medium rare to perfection and one of the most tender steaks i have ever had.The service was outstanding and staff was very kind from the moment we stepped in to the moment we walked out .Will be going back and definitely jumped to the too of my list in favorite restaurants.

I loved the wait staff and the gm Zane, the view as always was beautiful but my main course and side veggies were drowned in butter. I ate the priciest thing on the menu, the sole, and it was more butter than fish.

I had the Mocha Profiteroles for dessert!

Due to covid-19 they only have outdoor dining, I suggest checking the weather prior to arrival. It gets a little chilly when you are sitting that high up over seeing the city. Nothing a few shots of tequila won’t fix ;)

This was our first dining out experience since Covid started, so we had high hopes for our dinner. It was really cold out and the heat lamps weren’t doing a great job. We told our server right after we were seated, that we noticed that the flame on one of the heat lamps looked like it was fading and perhaps the propane needed to be replaced. The tank wasn’t refilled until we were almost done with dessert, what a disappointment. We don’t blame our server for this, we blame management. Being cold colored our entire view of the evening. The highlight of the menu were the cocktails. The appetizers seem to all only be salads and the entrees were lackluster. The offerings were unimaginative creations that lacked the kind of flair and finesse one would expect when paying over $200 for dinner. The lamb tasted great, but the accompaniments were flat. The scallops were gritty and undercooked.
We let a manager know of our experience with the heat lamps and he simply thanked us for telling him and didn’t even offer an apology to us. As the elevator door closed on our first evening out in a year, my husband and I decided that we would never again return to this restaurant despite having had a previous great experience.

Food & service was great. Our server was Kyle. However, we were seated on the side of building with barely a view & asked to be switched to a table that opened up with a view (others had switched as well). The waiter asked the hostess & she informed us we could not move because it was a bigger table (it was same size as ours). That table remained open throughout our entire meal. During our dessert, they seated a party of two at the table we initially wanted to switch to. Extremely disappointed with not being accommodated when it obviously was doable. This was our first time there & aside from good reviews about food, the “Great-view” is a selling point.

This was a beautiful restaurant with amazing views, food and service! The parking was easy. The service was amazing. Our waiter was extremely pleasant. The food was also delicious, and I thought the prices were relatively reasonable for such great ambience, service and food. You have views of Downtown San Diego and are able to watch the airplanes come into San Diego airport. I highly recommend this place for special occasions or a fancy night out! I will be coming here again!

What can I say but WOW! Once again Mr. A' has exceeded my expectations on all levels. From the moment we walked in the door and were greeted by the Maître D. This was where my husband and I had our wedding reception eight years ago. They brought us complimentary champagne and because it was my husbands birthday on this night they also brought us a beautiful desert on the house. We ordered the caviar as a starter...OMG...soooo delicious! We sat outside because it was C-19 time and it was soooo beautiful, quiet and no wind what so ever! I brought a big coat and never put it on. Do yourself a favor the next time you have something to celebrate...go to Mr. A's. You will not be disappointed...they validate parking...you just feel taken care of! Thank you Mr. A's - we will be back.

The service was excellent! Our waiter was friendly and accommodating. The ambiance was exactly what my boyfriend and I needed after a long work week. The view was beautiful and the setting was quiet. We had dinner right at sunset, which proved to be one of the most relaxing and serene views I’ve seen in San Diego. Amazing!
