A small, beautiful restaurant with an amazing view of the city and harbor. The service was absolutely perfect. Vegetarian and vegan options are plenty, and most dishes can be adapted to vegetarian as well. It is a great date-night spot, although a little expensive.

100% worth trying, and I will be coming back here again for my next special occasion.

Great service. Food was good, small portions so make sure you get some apps. We had the mussels, escargot and lobster salad to start and it was all delicious. The scallops are well cooked and the duck was also great.

Dinner with the in-laws. Special night out for the adults, no kids. Loved the outdoor seating and the spectacular view. The food was great, as usual. Our server, Alvin, made a great night even more pleasurable. We felt no pressure to eat quickly and thoroughly enjoyed the time together. The muscles are a fantastic appetizer, try them. The steak was tender and tasty, the sole was flakey and mild. The pork chops were tender and flavorful . The duck breast was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions, but do yourself a favor and declare a special occasion and enjoy yourself!

To begin, the restaurant continues to be welcoming while enforcing safe practices in accordance with the current viral pandemic protocols. We enjoyed our table and the amazing views of the city of San Diego! Every course of dinner was expertly prepared and delicious. Mister A's remains a premier table in a city full of great dining options as well as a top special occasion destination.

Our experience was wonderful, as usual - since this is one of our fave places! Great view from our outside table, attentive service and amazing food (the Mac n cheese is to die for!) Just sorry we don’t live closer, so that we could enjoy your restaurant more than once/year! Bravo!

Requested outdoor seating, got outdoor seating. The very last table by a big industrial grate that turned on and off some big blower. Not terribly inviting - very industrial and disappointing. Invited out of town guests for the experience but really no one was impressed sitting next to big machinery.

Haven’t been to Mr A’s in over 20 years. I like the updates since it’s Bertrands now. When we arrived for our reservation the maître d’ knew of our special occasion which was nice. However that was not communicated to the server. Just thought that was interesting.

Nothing short of perfection. Mr. A's is our favorite restaurant in San Diego, and they always rise to the challenge of impressing us more every time we visit. The food is delightful, and the service amazing. We had Tyrone as our Server this visit and he was smart, kind, knowledgeable and was super informative about their wine selections and pairings. We loved the entire dinner!
