    Great view and food. A bit let down by the service for the quality of the restaurant. Our wine glasses became empty and neither the server nor the wine bottle was to be found. Water glasses not consistently filled either. We requested more butter for our rolls but no one returned with it. And BTY I am not that particular a customer.

    The Sunday brunch before July 4th was quiet without many customers. My family had a corner table with gorgeous south and west views of San Diego. It was a beautiful morning to go with a delicious Mr. A’s brunch. Everything we ordered was tasty: eggs Benedict, omelette, Mr. A’s burger. We are surely to go back again.

    This was our first time here and we were told that we would not be disappointed and will love it and we are believers. Mister A is elegant restaurant with superior quality and service. This night was my wife’s birthday dinner and it was a perfect night. The food was great and the drink selection was great. The scenic view of the city was fabulous. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion and we will definitely be back again soon.

    We come every year for our anniversary and we are always happy with our choice to spend it with you. The food is always wonderful. I didn’t care for the appetizer choices so our server asked the chef if he could do a shrimp cocktail! He did and it was excellent! Our server was a joy and so attentive. Thank you for our complimentary dessert and a wonderful evening!

    Delightful place, delicious meals, wonderful service. Bit tacky though, at such a nice place, to nickel and dime the bread, butter, water, and surcharge. Relaxing the dress code has had unfortunate consequences... Would recomend with qualifications for now.

    Mr.A's is one of the premier restaurants in San Diego. We had a great birthday experience there. The ambience was excellent, supported by weather. The food was good, the drinks were excellent. The complementary velvet cake was a nice touch. It's a place that impresses.

    Our dinner at Mr. A's was absolutely wonderful! The food was prepared with obvious care and with attention to reasonably sized portions and presentation. The service was first-class with nice interludes between courses that allowed for enjoyment of the bay vista and the incoming planes at eye level! Our captain, JP, was attentive, and most helpful with explanations of the menus items and specials as well as wines. We appreciate fine dining and do it often so our comparison of Mr. A's is against some of the finest. We don't give 5 stars without them being earned!

    My wife and I wanted to revisit an old haunt, Mister A's. We'd always enjoyed dining or having a cocktail when we lived closer. We came down (from Murrieta) to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were NOT disappointed. Service was excellent (shout out to our waiter Mark D., who's service was superb). Food was spectacular. The view is so good on top of that building overlooking much of San Diego downtown.

    We were celebrating our 56 anniversary and we were not disappointed. The specials were incredible and my husband's favorite dish Oso Buco was one of the specials. We spent our first anniversary at Mr. A's and unfortunately the bill was considerably higher. LOL

    Mr. A's is THE MOST consistently GREAT night out in San Diego! There is no other restaurant ~ even in this high-end category ~ that delivers in every way, every time. Mr. A's is always perfection ~ service, culinary, ambience. And the entire staff ~ from the hosts/greeters to the people who clear the table ~ are attentive throughout. The staff is also always perfectly attired ... not a smidge of sloppiness anywhere! The menu is well-balanced, and dishes are always perfectly prepared (don't forget to save room for dessert!). Oh, and did I mention the valet parking? Again, just so well done! And, of course, the view is spectacular (for dinner, it's great to time your reservation with the sunset). It goes without saying that Mr. A's is the perfect place for a special occasion, BUT if you just want a perfect evening out, Mr. A's can't be beat! By the way, we have dined there on many holidays, including Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving (!), and the experience is just as special ~ (Mr. A's doesn't overbook, overcook, or overpromise the way most other restaurants do on holidays). Yea Mr. A's!
