Anniversary dinner was wonderful at Mr. A's. We were warmly welcomed and out special day was acknowledged several times! Amazing rooftop views and we were able to take our time and enjoy each course of our meal. Appreciated the fact that we were not rushed in purser to turn the table quickly. Started with cocktails and oysters - so good! Scallops were perfectly prepared and the halibut special was amazing! We ordered the "trio" of side dishes. Perfect for sharing. The creme brûlée was one of the best ever! Will definitely return!

Best rooftop restaurant that I’ve ever been to. The view is fantastic. The food and the service are very good. It’s a lovely restaurant. I went with my 2 kids, ages 6 and 8. They have a kids menu, but you have to ask for it. It’s more of a restaurant for adults but kids are welcome.

This place was absolutely amazing, down to the view, the atmosphere, our waitress, and the manager. I surprised my girlfriend with a sunset date for her 28th birthday, I brought in flowers and balloons. The manager helped me find a perfect spot and also helped set up an hour before my reservation. I want to thank Bret ( our waiter ) for an amazing time, she knew the menu very well and also was very well spoken. Will we visit again. Absolutely! I thank you again. - Nyisha.

Wonderful as always. This is a special occasion restaurant and I miss the dress code. Seeing some slob in shorts, a t shirt and tennis shoes should not be part of a very pricey restaurant. The menu was quite short, and it is time to move on from QR code’s and bring a real menu.

Our request for a window table for our anniversary dinner was honored by seating us in front of the waiters'station and bar area. Even though we sat by the window the area was noisy and quite cool with the open door to the deck. Paying $50 for a half bottle of wine (which was one of the less expensive choices) along with the very average complimentary slice of anniversary cake did not make a very pleasant evening.

The hostess and Mgr were very accommodating to provide a lovely view table and Zak our waiter was spot on with his food recommendations the filet and the side of scallops is a must. But the best side order is the views. To see the lovely downtown skyline , harbor and close passing of arriving planes is truly special. A must do in when visiting San Diego.

Despite the “reopening” of California, This Restaurant While Seemingly Increasing Its Capacity Did so in a Manner That Still Maintained Appropriate Distancing and Face Covering. The Service Was Excellent. At No Point Did I Feel Uncomfortable about My Surroundings.

My wife's birthday celebration. Service and food were outstanding. Tyrone was our waiter, and all his suggestions were perfect. I would ask for him to help us when we dine at Mr A's again. Beautiful view. We sat outside and very glad we did.

After waiting 10 minutes for our 800pm outdoor reservations, we were seated and the rest was smooth sailing. Our server was non intrusive, knowledgeable, and available. Food was cooked well, had a nice presentation, and all the plates were brought out at once. The mixed drinks were a bit lacking in alcohol would be my only criticism. Would highly recommend.
