Very very slow service, the food wasn’t spectacular, we have to leave after three hours of service we didn’t get our desserts. The waiter didn’t care about, we were waiting for so long. Very bad experience, higher prices

You really can’t beat the view and the ambiance here. My wife and I have talked about going for a while and finally got a table last night. We were blown away by the view and the cocktails. We will definitely be back but only to enjoy the bar and cocktails. The food was excellent, just a little pricey for the amount they give which was expected.

Outdoor views were amazing. Staff were professional, caring, and accommodating. They arraigned a nice open and private spot outside for me to propose to my girlfriend and we’re more than happy to take pictures and videoed it as well. It was a memorable evening and we will go back at least on every anniversary.

Service was welcoming and professional, Brett (female server) was attentive, but was quite aware of giving us space and time. Appetizers were most memorable part of the meal, wine list quite good. Plating on entrees was quite good and flavors (in sauces and puree garnishes) were interesting - filet wonderful, lamb duo was not all that great honestly (but that is my only criticism to an otherwise wonderful meal).

I liked the service and the cocktails as well as the view, but sadly the food fell short.

Maybe i was expecting too much after living here for 20 years and having it on my list of places to try, but it seemed underwhelming to me. I got the four course fixed price menu and there were some great moments but a lot of it was just okay. The pasta in the appetizer was more-than-a-little al dente.

I would go back for the experience of the view and the bar but the food didn't stand out enough to make me want to pay that much again.

Mister A’s reserved us a spectacular table for 7 outside as per my request on Open Table. The view is like no other! To see San Diego from the perspective of Mister A’s is something I highly recommend. The service was outstanding. What a special night celebrating our son’s 16th birthday! Thank you Mister A’s!

View is incredible, food is great, wine options are good. The Service was horrible. Our res was 7:45... we received our first glass of water at our table at 8:30. When we arrived, we were told there would be a short wait, so we went to the bar. A server approached us about 20 minutes later and stated that our table was being prepped and we would be seated shortly ... about 10 minutes later I approached to host stand to inquire about our table and we were finally seated shortly thereafter. The manager discounted our check, and apologized profusely. I asked around after having gone there and everyone told me the same thing - view is great food is good but the service is hit nor miss. If you go to Mr As - ask for an outside or window seat as the view of the city and the runway are incredible... just realize that service may be underwhelming.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and have never been to Bertrand’s Mr. A’s. We knew of its reputation and to say the least, they did not disappoint. We can agree, that they lived up to the hype! Everything they did was nothing less than first class. This was our own personal “5 star, diamond club, Michelin experience.” ...at least, that’s how we felt through out the entire evening! We strongly recommend for ANY occasion.

We celebrated a birthday and we were greeted with a Happy Birthday. They also remembered I had a dietary restriction and made sure that that our orders from the tasting menu didn’t contain that substance. We decided to dine outside and the view was amazing. The service was spectacular as well as the food. Highly recommend visiting this establishment for a great dining experience. Thank you to the staff for making this such a memorable experience.

Best,

No better place to have lunch and no better service anywhere. If you’re lucky enough to have Jerry and his staff wait on you, lunch is not only sublime, it’s flat out fun! A great guy and someone who knows his business better than anyone, Jerry makes any day at A’s a special experience. Get there! You’ll be very happy that you did! Effendi sends.

This was a very special dinner with my beloved niece. We wanted to sit on the patio but I can't be in direct sunlight. We were given a spot on the corner of the patio that was VERY private and shaded from the sun. When we were debating the wine, the sommelier came to help us. We really enjoyed talking to him and the wine he suggested was perfect. All the staff was very attentive but we didn't feel rushed at all. We enjoyed a superb dinner and experienced time for a long, heartfelt conversation.

Best view in San Diego! Everything was excellent from the valet parking to food and service. I highly recommend making a reservation for outside seating. This restaurant is everything you would expect from a 5 star restaurant. It's a little on the pricey side but well worth it.

While the view is phenomenal, the food is tasty and the wine selection is extensive, the service seemed lacking. We were celebrating our anniversary and we splurge for important days like that! I wanted to try somewhere new and I decided to pass up an opportunity to go to The Grant (one of my favorites) in exchange to try this restaurant. After being seated 25 mins past when our reservation was (I intentionally made it so we could watch the sunset at the beginning of our meal but no, we got to stand outside awkwardly to watch it) while 4 tables were open and we waited well past our reservation to be seated. It took another 20 mins to even get a wine list and another 15+ after that to get a glass of wine. As a young couple obviously we don’t regularly frequent this restaurant or restaurants in this caliber, so when we do we expect the service to be great and it just wasn’t. I made the reservation well in advance and requested the best possible seat and notified them it was our anniversary, but we were stuck around the corner with no view of the ocean (we asked to be moved one table over but that wasn’t possible even though no one was seated there) and since we were out of the way it seemed like we waited forever for everything, we even had to have another server come help us because ours was so inattentive. We don’t expect to be waited on hand and foot AT ALL (in fact that makes us uncomfortable) but when we spend $165 on an anniversary date night we simply expect much more attentive and timely service than we received. The message seemed clear to us, we were not the wealthy people who frequent the restaurant so we got the butt end of the deal, stuck in the corner with minimal attention. All I have to say is I’ve never had that happen at The Grant and will probably stick with them for future special occasions, where we at least get our money’s worth. This place has a STUNNING view, which is why 3 stars instead of 2 and why I would recommend for the view only.
