Mister A’s did not disappoint! The food was very good, and Benjamin provided us with amazing service. Of course, we sat outside, and it was a beautiful night, with spectacular views of the harbor! I strongly recommend Mister A’s, particularly for a special night out!

The staff was very accommodating for a birthday celebration dinner. Our group was encouraged to linger a while on the patio before heading in to a great table! The wait staff was then very attentive thru the evening.
Everyone was complimentary about the occasion!

Disappointed. Reserved for Sunday brunch; only 1 of 4 tables at the time we were there… Our meals took about 45-60 to get to the table; our food was not as hot as it should be and fries were cold. Service was disjointed; many servers on the floor but didn’t seem to be doing much and our server was very busy…
Overall poor brunch experience; expect more from this type of restaurant. The intention was there but didn’t deliver…. Dunno May give it another chance…

Incredible ambiance for our romantic dinner. We sat slightly before sunset and enjoyed an amazing view as the light dropped over the horizon. The service was impeccable and our server had the awareness to be attentive from a distance which made the dinner and conversation enjoyable. The food was delectable and definitely recommend the Red Top Berkshire Pork Belly as a starter. Excellent wine selection for pairing with delicious entrées. Overall we were extremely satisfied with the experience.

These are my criticisms, but everything was amazing otherwise:

-Don't charge for bread, especially if it is nothing special.
-Stop forcing the wait staff to hide their faces with cloth, it is disturbing.
-Play something other than flat, boring elevator music.

We came here for my fiancé’s birthday and it was amazing. The restaurant, the food, the service, the ambiance, the view, everything was perfect. It was pricey but it was worth every penny for the experience we had. Ryan was our server and he was super friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back. Perfect upscale dining and perfect for special occasions!

My husband and I have been to Mr. A's several times over the last year and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic, the service knocks it out of the park, and the magnificent view ties it all together. If you are an airplane junkie like me, sitting outside with the close-up view of aircraft approaching and landing is fun and great for conversation.

The interior is a bit outdated and verging on late '80s to early '90s decor but I hear that may be changing with new ownership. A real dining experience here will end with a steep bill if you order appetizers, drinks, entrees and dessert but I don't care. Just give me that delicious food!

View from the deck is amazing.
Mushroom Risotto was perfect. Not stating this lightly.

Wine list has some good choices that will definitely make most happy.
I wished to find a better “eclectic” section. Things are too predictable.

Great experience all around.

Amazing views and excellent, delicious entrees: perfectly cooked filet mignon and white seabass; disappointed that dessert was 'just ok' (chai creme brulee and cheesecake). What really made an impression was the outstanding customer service, from the moment we walked in until the moment we left. It was great to see how the staff worked together to make sure our dining experience was first class.

Went for brunch to check it out since I’m new to San Diego. Food was meh. The beef tartare had a very awkward taste to it seem to have a bright citrus juice note in it which made it barely edible. Server explained (after she noticed we didn’t have more than 3 bites of it) that since it was French technic they used ketchup in it, which would explain the sweetness to the dish but left me confused on the other flavors of it. I had the short rib Benedict for my main and was very underwhelmed by the flavor profile of this Luke warm dish as well. As I heard from my coworkers the view was fantastic but the food was…. Eh. Service was okay nothing grand nothing wowing nothing that set them apart from any other restaurant.
