The menu was average and should be updated. Our server did not explain all of the menu options and we may have ordered differently as well.

They initially would not provide a candle to blow out for a birthday celebration due to COVID19 but then placed a candle in a glass. Pretty silly if you ask me...

Excellent experience for us. There were six of us for a holiday party. We started with a cocktail on the patio, before moving inside to an excellent corner view table. The service and food were top shelf for sure. Our only complaint was that it was very warm in the corner where our table was located. Luckily, about half-way through our meal, the A/C kicked on and that problem was solved. Super warm and uncomfortable before that however. We will be back and I highly recommend the Mr. A's experience to anyone who hasnt been there.

Great view, excellent wait staff especially Bengamin! The mushroom soup, duck, and the chocolate pot de creme were fantastic! The self park garage was easy but also creepy empty. My husband felt leery of the opportunities for criminals with no one in sight or shouting distance if you ever needed help.

Entrees, service and ambiance were great but the up charged mash potato side was small and cold. The chopped asparagus was unappealing for an upscale dining experience.

We were celebrating my husband's 50th birthday and I wanted it to be special. We sat outdoor, the atmosphere and the view were wonderful. Very romantic! The service was amazing. The food was good as well for a specials treat. No ideal for kids. I would absolutely recommend it for a romantic evening!

There is no experience in Southern California like Mr. A’s. Whenever I am in San Diego, I make it a point to attempt to get a reservation and am always happy I did. If you appreciate high level service, elegant surroundings, great skyline views and dining in sight of the Pacific Ocean, you have to go to Mr. A’s.

Best view in San Diego!! Went on a Friday morning was a little sad that brunch is only served on weekends. So we ordered lunch starting off with escargot and mussels. Absolutely delicious. Our meals were just as tasty and dessert was to die for. I ordered a crunchy apple treat with Gelato and my hubby ordered chocolate mousse. It did get hot outside so I recommend extra sunscreen or a hat. Will definitely return on my next visit.

A hidden gem of San Diego. The service was amazing, the views of San Diego are as good as it gets without being airborne. The 270 degree views are unreal. Their Thanksgiving menu was incredible! Can’t say enough good things. I recommend them for any milestone dinners that you have coming up! They go above and beyond!

Real turkey with traditional staffing, yams, and all other trimmings with spectacular view of the bay and ocean. Outdoor table was better than inside, except the sun was bit too strong. Enjoying this with my loved one with wonderful servers. What more do we want in our life? The price is much more reasonable than Hotel Del.

Level of service was not the same but it was fine…Just not up to its usual standard. For example, I had to ask twice for my drink, they forgot the steak knife so waited a while to flag down a wait staff, our waiter was too busy it seemed like to check on us, wrong dessert order, incorrect check. But the view was spectacular, the food was wonderful, and we had a good time.
