Well prepared food absolutely correct for this class of restaurant but not outstanding. There are no surprises, no gastronomic delights. Some way before it could be thought of as Michelin star candidate. However great for an occasion and wonderful view. Our second visit .

An outstanding restaurant, excellent service, great food and the view is awesome. Recommend that you schedule your time there for daylight into dark to really appreciate the view. Airplanes flying by the window make it even better. Highly recommend having a drink outside on the deck. Will definitely return on our next trip to SD.

Definitely get valet parking. Definitely sit outside. Definitely bring a date. Definitely make your date feel comfortable. Definitely ball out. Definitely don't be cheap. Definitely dress to impress. Definitely bring a jacket. Definitely order dessert. Definitely say hi to Yvette the server from bbart (she will know who you're talking about).

Delicious food and amazing ambience, service was below standard for any restaurant. We felt neglected with the wait staff. Seemed like the waitress was doing all the running, clearing and service. We live to dine dinning and this was truly a disappointment. Especially when they deduct 20% for service fee automatically from your check. LOL!

Thanksgiving dinner. We were going to be in San Diego for Thanksgiving and found this restaurant with very good reviews.
My husband and I had a wonderful turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Great prefix dinner with a great selection.
Service was superb as was the beautiful city views.
Highly recommend this restaurant

We are locals but this was our first time to Mr. A's and we went for Thanksgiving. In my opinion, it's especially important for holiday dining that guests are welcomed warmly. We excitedly exited the elevator at the hostess stand and were quite surprised when we approached and received zero eye contact, zero smiles, zero warmth. I was completely worried that I had selected the wrong restaurant for our Thanksgiving celebration,
Fortunately though, the wait staff was superb, the food was wonderful and the view, of course, spectacular.

We dined at Mr. A's for Thanksgiving. Overall we had a great experience with very good service with a few small exceptions. We had to ask for coffee and butter 3 times to get it. The decaf coffee was horrible - tasted like instant coffee and it was cold. The side for the pork dish was strange and unappetizing. The sides for the turkey entrée were great - very traditional; the only item on that dish we didn't enjoy was the sweet potatoes.

Yea we got to dress up.. but after - getting the bill for $380 was a shocker... I had the scallops they were good.. not fantastic... The steak my husband had was fabulous... I guess if you went to just show you have money this would be the place to go.. beautiful views overlooking the city. The busboy was very nice and let us go out and take a look..

Usually love this restaurant. Been many times. However, disappointed last Friday:
Hostess was so unsatisfactory. Felt like I was waiting to be seated in a coffee shop. Rest of wait staff excellent.
Champagne cocktail unsatisfactory. Flat, no lemon twist. Disappointing.
Ceaser salad poor.
My duck, mediocre.
Profiteroles were so hard, needed a steak knife to cut them. Mediocre.
Wines by the glass delicious and reasonable

Excellent service! Food was pretty good but the vegetables that come with the main dishes were over cooked. They did adjust our bill for that though. Highly recommend this place.
Great ambiance and amazing views of the city!

Mister A's has been a San Diego Classic for decades. It successfully reinvented itself many years back to keep up with the current expectations in cuisine, decor and service. Fantastic meal, great ambiance, and a local treasure that has a view AND great food.

My husband and I have had dinners here as well as Brunch and it never disappoints ! The views of downtown and the bay are beautiful day or night. A nice intimate but not stuffy atmosphere, and the service is flawless.

Have lived in SD since 1999 and have never been here.....it is now on the top of my all time favorite restaurants. ( I have been to Marine Room, Addison's, The Lodge, even Mille Fleur etc...) From the moment I was greeted as the elevator doors opened, having a glass of wine at the bar, seated at our table at the exact time of our reservation, having beyond incredible service and the food, was beyond incredible. We were a 7:15pm seating and did not leave until 10:30pm. No one rushed us to order, to eat, etc....and the view is just the icing on the cake. Thank you for an incredible experience!

Bertrand's hits the ball out of the restaurant park!
It was my first return to this iconic restaurant since it has become Betrand's. What a huge difference and improvement in the ambience, service, and especially the food and wine! We were three and each had the tasting menus with coordinated wines per course. Each course was impeccably paired with wine, and the amount of wine and food was just enough, but not overwhelming. It was still possible to drive home. The decor has been successfully updated, and the outdoor dining possibilities on the heated deck are intoxicating. All around your table as you dine are the lights, planes, and sights of nighttime San Diego. It is well worth the price, which is substantial. I'm scheming to go back: a birthday gift to me? A holiday gift to me? I will think of someway to go back, and this time have someone else pay the bill!

I have been there for many times , when You have a room outside with the great view m the service is very slow , took me 20 minutes to get my cocktail before dinner , I had to walk to the front desk to ask ...The oso bucco I ordered was not great ( was OK ) a restaurant like this should have provided better food , my date was not able to finish her filet mignon really not as expected , the soda we ordered was flat and when they replaced was not any better .
I ordered double expresso at the end it came not hot enough
Usually I get better experience there , but this time it was bad

Went to celebrate our wedding, we took just a quick get away to San Diego, the view was amazing and the service was great. The food was good and overall not to highly priced for the type of dining. I was happy with it, and if anyone in your party is into aviation this is an absolute perfact spot to watch the planes land, they are on the glide path at or below your position.

Mr. A's is a very special restaurant. I've been there several times with my husband and/or guests and it has never disappointed us in any way. The staff is very helpful. professional, friendly and accommodating. Thank you for a delightful evening with my friend.

Food was delicious, service was exceptional and the view is the most fabulous in San Diego! Our server, David, made sure my wine glass was never empty! This restaurant is my "go to" place for special occasions... they have never let me down in the last 10 years.

Delicious food beautifully presented. Entrees and desserts excellent. My only fault withl this restaurant would be needs more salad choices. Service is excellent and views outstanding -all across San Diego Bay and downtown.

Awesome view and service. Food was mostly fantastic, except the lobster on the surf and turf was a undercooked and a bit fishy tasting. Other than that, it was an great experience and we will certainly dine there again.

Our first time there and won't return. They try to make this out to be a 'tuxedo' waiter type of place and it just doesn't work. We thought the service fawning' and over the top. Location and views are superb, and food was OK, but not worth the proce.
