The view, the food, and the ambience were great. Food was presented beautifully. Our server Adrian was not engaged at all. Did not ask us if we wanted an appetizer, did not ask us our meal was, did not ask us if we wanted any more drinks or wine with our meal. We had to ask our assisting for wine as Adrian disappeared for long intervals. It was a lovely evening that could have been exceptional if our server was engaged.

We went to Mr. A's for lunch for a 25th work anniversary for a co-worker. Tori was our server and she was fabulous! After lunch she brought a dessert with a congratulatory message on the plate written in chocolate! The food is always incredible at Mr. A's and the view is the best in the city! Love this place!

The food at Mister A's was impeccable! We dined here during Restaurant Week in San Diego, and we couldn't have been more pleased. It was the perfect spot for a romantic evening celebrating a special occasion. The view was breathtaking, and the food was delicious. Friendly yet professional service, would definitely go back!

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. The whole experience was amazing from the moment we got off the elevator, from the greetings from the hostesses, to being brought and sat at our table, to being greeted by our server asking if we were celebrating anything special, and the VIEW! Such and amazing view of San Diego!

We were there during restaurant week so we were able to order a three course meal that was absolutely delicious! And the wine pairing that our server suggested was spot on.

We enjoyed everything about this place and would 100% recommend this place.

I enjoyed the food and the service but I came to the restaurant week and they were promoting their dinners at $50 but then had a very fine print that would then add up to 22% on to your bill which really wasn't much of a promotional discount and did should just advertise it as a $75 dinner instead of false advertising which was not very nice and was a surprise at dinner.

Some friends of ours and us wanted to treat another couple to a nice dinner for their anniversary. We heard about restaurant week so we thought it would be a perfect time to try something new. Over all the view was amazing, the food was delicious but this place was a little too much for me. Not only is it expensive but some of the staff just don’t seem very friendly. I don’t know if I’d come here again.

I happened to book dinner for two for my husband's birthday.
Happy coincidence, it was also Restaurant Week. The menu was limited, but it truly delivered.
The menu had wine pairings, which made the whole experience so much better.
The service was flawless.
Yes, we would recommend Mister A's. It's an amazing spot for a date, sunset and to enjoy San Diego skyline.

We eat there for special occasions and just when we want something special and quiet. It is always perfect except for this time. I made the reservation for a birthday lunch and they didn't remember. My husband is 85 and all he wanted for his birthday was lunch at Mister A's. He was happy with the experience, but I was disappointed that they forgot his birthday. Also, the Valet parking is usually a nice touch, but this time the girl in reception didn't call down and have our car ready and the one valet was nicely helping an elderly man with a walker get his stuff together and get dressed. I appreciate his helping the person, but if our car had been ready, like it usually is, we could have been on our way 15 minutes sooner. We love this place, but this was not the usual experience.
