Unfortunately, it was a cool night in San Diego and I was cold the entire night. Although they had heaters outside and did everything they possibly could to try and accommodate me, I never was warm so it was hard to enjoy the excellent food.

Other than this, I love the restaurant and would just be careful not to sit outside on a cool night.

The waiter and other servers were outstanding. The food was good, not outstanding. The fish had a bit of lemon, so it impacted the flavor. Also, the 12 oz. filet had a lot of fat. That can be improved given the type of restaurant.

We chose Mister A's to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. It was an amazing experience in fine dining! This is not our first time to the restaurant, and this time we were not disappointed. The food was spectacular! We started with Oysters on the half shell, then a Beet Salad. I had the Duck Breast with cherry sauce and the flavors were amazing. My husband ordered the Petite Filet Mignon with Bernaise Sauce and he said it was the best Bernaise he had ever had. Then dessert with Chocolate Profiteroles filled with Chocolate Ice Cream. The entire meal was memorable and spectacular! Thank you Mister A's!

This Birthday dinner visit to Bertrand at Mister A's was absolutely wonderful! It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Amazing service and food. The city view here is unlike any other I've experienced while dining out in this city. A San Diego must-try! We will be back for another celebration for sure. (:

Highly disappointed with the “8 oz filet mignon” my wife ordered . We have been to many fine Restaurants and steak houses- and never have received 2 smaller 4 ounce steaks when the menu reads 8 oz filet mignon ... you might as well just have given her eight 1 oz steaks ? I’m not sure if this is how mister Aw serves their steaks but if that’s the case I will never recommend this place for a good steak. The sea bass was great as well as the sides but feel scammed for a 70$ steak that less than average

Been many times to Mr. A's over the years but this visit found the food to be bland. Very little (if any) salt was used in the Escargot and Mussels. Garlic seemed to be nonexistent as well (Escargot). Oysters on the half only came with the mignonette topping that gave them an overpowering onion vinegar taste. My friend didn't eat the last piece because if it. Traditional service is always best for Oysters on the half. The Duck Breast was there. Very simple flavours, non complex with a texture of being somewhat undercooked. Which maybe the way it should be, not sure.
ITS OPEN for lunch now....PLEASE BRING BACK THE STEAK N BLU FLAT BREAD!!!
Thanks for listening!

Always a wonderful time dining here with food, incredible service and the chef accommodating our lactose situation..(we’re a PITA) :) and of course the five star view of San Diego. Get the escargot, beef carpaccio, all the salads, filet mignon, sea bass and that delishhh chocolate dessert. Oh my! Thank you for the beautiful experience!! We’ll be back in a few days!

Ambiance is lovely. Staff very accommodating, friendly and professional.
Unfortunately, the sauce on the eggs benedict was tasteless. The sirloin was very tough with gristle running through. My duck confit was so dry, devoid of flavor and not edible..
Deserts we're delicious.

I've been to Mister A's 2 previous times.
The experience I had the 2 previous times were perfect! But this last time 4/2/21 was not good.
Our waiter did not give us the experience we expected to have. We place our appetizer order along with the drink order which I'm glad we did because after we did, we didn't see our waiter for 20-25 minutes. We placed our order when we finally saw the waiter, we ordered lamb medium-well (it was cooked medium-rare)😔, scallops, and the sole. The scallops and sole arrived almost cold. We ordered bread while we waited for our meal and that took longer than it should have.(Disappointing). I think we were forgotten about by our waiter.
I know every waiter/waitress has bad days, but to not get ahead of the situation and ask the manager to come explain made the whole experience quite frustrating and Disappointing!

The appetizers were amazing and worth every penny. The entrees were not as good we had the shrimp and salmon which aren’t to hard to make appetizing, but we felt it could’ve been made better. Overall 4/5 for the evening experience and it was a special occasion which made it a good night.

We chose outside seating. Unfortunately at 8:30 PM the wind picked up and it became almost unbearable. With that said the food was amazing and the service for second to none. I can’t wait to go back once we can eat indoors or possibly on a warmer night with no wind.

It's been a few years since I've been here. We went to celebrate our anniversary & I'm so happy we did! Yes, the menu items are highly priced, but, we had to splurge for our special occasion! We chose Mr. A's for the view, but, the food was delectable! I love their caesar salads! The side veggies were so heavenly, especially the carrots with pesto!! Wow!! We also had potatoes au gratin & brussel sprouts with the macadamia nut crusted sea bass, which was slightly undercooked, but, we were so hungry & happy to be there, we didnt care. We finished our meal with the creme brulee & no regrets there! Mmmm! It was very windy for the first 45 mins, but, it was a warm, swirly wind that made watching the planes fly by near the water & city lights, even more exciting & magical! We had smiles on our faces all night! The food was savory, the staff was impeccable, the ambience & view was spectacular! It was a very romantic evening! Thank you!!

No better place in San Diego to celebrate a birthday.
Spectacular city view; excellent menu; delicious food; attentive services. Manager Ryan came by the table to greet us (returning customers) personally, making us feel extra welcome. We highly recommend Mister A’s.
