Absolutely outstanding. The views, the food, the atmosphere, our server was amazing! It was a surprise brunch for a friend’s 30th and she was blown away! Thank you again!

Since we stepped out the elevator we were welcomed with great service. From the server to wait staff, the service was excellent. My date had a peanut allergy and they made sure she was safe with all our dishes. Great experience coming here, the food was delicious and the view was beautiful. Would definitely recommend getting outdoor seating. Of course it is a bit higher in price but after this experience it was worth every penny.

The view was absolutely amazing and so was the service. The food was good but for the price was not excellent. I would absolutely recommend this place and will go back. We had a party of 4 and were celebrating a birthday. We had drinks, appetizers, and main course and the bill was $500.

Hey... what can I say. It’s a classic fine dining experience. I’ve been there and I personally know how difficult and challenging it is to maintain this level of service. We went there for our 20th anniversary and were not disappointed. A restauranteurs restaurant. Enough said.

MisterA’s is a fantastic experience that we highly recommend. The only negative comment is the restaurant didn’t have enough of the specials, our waitress had to come back and deliver the bad news.

Overall the food and the view as well as the levels of service are worthy of your trust.

Three women friends getting together for dinner to catch up and enjoy each other’s company over a good meal. A lemon drop martini for one, Ale Smith on draft for another, and a glass of Olema Cabernet for me. Appetizers and dinner were excellent as usual. Two of us had the filet, which was cooked to perfection and one of us had the Halibut. Dessert was the decadent chocolate and berries! I’m always impressed with Mr. A’s and will continue to go for any occasion!

My boyfriend and I came here for our 2 anniversary and sat outside on the patio for dinner. There was the most gorgeous sunset that night, which we had a perfect view of, and we came during restaurant week. I had the scallops and my boyfriend had the mushroom risotto, both to die for. The scallop dish was one of the best scallop dishes I have ever had. For dessert we both got the chocolate tiramisu which was incredible and they even wrote out "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate sauce on the plate. Absolutely delicious and a great ambiance. The only thing was after having a pricey dinner, we still had to pay for valet (and we would have parked our car ourselves but there weren't any other street spots or separate area to self park. We were also one of about 2-3 cars left in the valet area so we found it a little silly that our car was one lane over from the elevator where we were standing and the woman still went and parked it and drove it back to us and then we paid for the valet).

Everything about being at Mr. A’s exudes class. The finesse of the wait staff, to attentiveness, the view! The only issue was with the Plancha appetizer on the Restaurant Week appetizer menu. It was extremely salty. Almost inedible. Everything else magnificent and beautifully presented. Roman was a wonderful waiter.

The view,ambiance and service were out standing as usual. The wine was fine and priced accordingly. The steak tartar was overly spicy for my taste. I prefer the traditional tartar. Mister A's is a fine choice for restaurant week and the menu range should meet everyone's desires. The deserts are especially decadent. Think of Mister A's as a special events restaurant, we celebrated our 51st anniversary there.

We walked out both agreeing that every now and then it is so worth it to have a really outstanding dining experience. Everything was terrific. The staff are so attentive, the room is quiet, what's not to love about the sunset over planes taking off and landing? And the food was exceptional. We did not talk through dessert because they were so delicious and we wanted to savor every morsel. Fabulous!

It seemed that the staffing does not invest in their guests, even after the restaurant has just opened, we had to flag down our server. The whole week was set to restaurant menu and should be charged accordingly but we were overcharged by $30 and had we not figured it out before we left the parking they would have gotten away with it. This is not their first rodeo. They were not apologetic and didn’t offer any compensation for their mistake which is very poor customer service. I had the spread the word to my family and friends to never come here ever.

Girlfriend and I went our first night on vacation. We were here during restaurant week. I had beef Wellington which was excellent but not piping hot. She had the pork loin which lacked flavor and wasn’t cooked thoroughly. Hard to cut. Was also a tad cold. Appetizers were good as was dessert. View was amazing and so was the service. Food was meh. We’d go back but just order steaks.

Brought my girlfriend here for her Bday. I wanted it to be really special. I have to say, the ambience, service and food was amazing. We ordered the heirloom tomato ravioli and lobster strudel for starters. The strudel was mouth watering! For entrees we ordered maple duck and pork chop dish. We were really amazed at the quality of our meals. We highly recommend this place! The waiter was also very knowledgeable of the menu. Thanks for the wonderful evening! We’ll be back.

It was amazing. Christin and team were fantastic and Nikoli our server on other occasions came over to wish us well.

It was my wife’s birthday and I know she will always remember it.
