What Our Customers Say
“The ambiance is an oasis, breathtaking views, white, crisp table cloths, lovely flowers on the tables with enough space for privacy. The service was exceptional, and our server was so elegant and professional.
We ordered garden salads with chicken and salmon and the plates were sumptuous and gorgeous to look at with blanched purple, green and white baby cauliflower, sugar snap peas and red leaf lettuce. The salmon was cooked to perfection, with the flesh buttery and delicate and the skin crunchy.
This is my favorite place for a great escape. You won’t regret it.”
“What an amazing view and experience!!!
We decided to go just for cocktails and sunset. The drinks are made perfectly, the service is professional and timely, and the views are breathtaking. You even get to see the planes fly in to land and you can hear the engines.
It’s a must visit if you’re in San Diego!!!”
“We went to Mr.A’s for restuarant week and it was fantastic! I’ve always wanted to Dine there! And it took my lovely girlfriend to talked me into it for restaurant week!
Starter, Entree and dessert was absolutely delicious and our server Adrian was awesome as well as the entire staff!
I highly recommend Mr.A’s especially at sunset! What a view!!!”
“Arrive early enough to have a cocktail on the balcony while watching the sunset over the Harbor & airport.
This is an upscale restaurant where you will find nothing but the best ambiance, food, service and views.
It’s at the top of the “A” list for anyone desiring a very special place to celebrate a very special occasion!”
“The views are truly extraordinary—can’t imagine anyone who would not thoroughly enjoy Mr A’s just for looking out the windows.
But food and service are also at a very high level and it’s always a special occasion to dine there. Lunch is especially nice on a sunny day, but would be delightful in any weather.
“We had a beautiful table on the west facing window – thank you, Ryan Thorsen!
The food and wine were excellent, as always. The filets were cooked to perfection, the French onion soup perfect, and the beet salad was exquisite.
It’s refreshing to dine at a restaurant and relax in its quiet surroundings.
The weather was clear so we could enjoy the view – all in all, a great evening!”
“I do not live in San Diego, but my parents do. I made reservations for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party and was nervous about picking a venue, site unseen. After hours of research and internet reviews, I picked Mister A’s.
I had 20 guests. We had the option of a cocktail party on the deck overlooking the whole city before dinner and eveyone loved it! Dinner service was excellent and the wait staff was top notch.
The food choices were wonderful!! Everyone had an amazing Mister A’s experience and I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice of venue.
Thank you for making my parents special day such a memorable evening.“
“I have been in San Diego for 23 years and never went to Mr. A’s. I took my wife to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
We have an awesome time.
The server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu. My wife had the beef medallions with short ribs and I had wild salmon with scallops.
The food was delicious and the view was unprecedented.“
“We had a 5:30 reservation so getting a good table was not an issue. We valet parked and the could not have been nicer. Metered street parking is an option but at this time spots nearby were full. Elevator to the top floor and there you are. A short wait to be seated and then to our table on the south facing side towards Coronado.
We think this is the best view, the city skyline and the planes coming in for a landing.
My wife started with a craft cocktail made with Mezcal, agave, jalapeño and fresh lime and pineapple. It was great, fresh tasting with a little smokiness and heat. I had a very good Manhattan. My wife had the lobster bisque and it was excellent among the beat she had ever had. I had an interesting wedge salad very artistic and good not great. My wife had scallops and I had the Beef Duo, 2 prime beef medallions and a short rib with Chimichurri sauce. Very tasty. We shared the Chocolate Royale, dark & white chocolate mousse, caramel, and a praline crunch.
Outstanding. Service was very good without intruding and our dining experience lasted almost 3 hours all of it great.
This is fine dining and with prices that reflect the experience. A must for that special occasion.”
“Sometimes view restaurants are touristy and mediocre, but that is certainly not the case here.
The staff is welcoming and, as many come here for special occasions, they go out of their way to greet you with a “Happy Birthday” or Anniversary or whatever.
We relied on our server’s recommendations on what to order, and enjoyed everything. Food quality and presentation were excellent.
The wait staff was very professional, knew the menu, and were attentive without being obtrusive.
The dining room is roomy and quiet, unlike most of the noisy restaurants we encounter today. If you eat indoors, be sure to take a stroll on the patio after eating to take in the view.
We have read reviews where people were unhappy with the food or that special occasions were not acknowledged, but that was certainly not the case for us.”
