“these were fancy amazing onion rings) for $7!”
Mister A's has an exception view of the San Diego Bay and is perfect to watch the sunset while dining..I'd absolutely recommend sitting outside. In addition to the atmosphere, the food was very good. The Mac and Cheese was outstanding, probably the best I've ever had.
Great Restaurant. Short and sweet. Make a reservation, Great food, Great service, great atmosphere. Very unique. Highly recommend.
Best restrant ever!!!. I love the restrant from start to finish. First you walk in and the smilling hostest seats you then you get to look over the menue while being pored glasses of water and looking out over down town. After you order they bring you a nice selection of bread then you're food comes looking amazing almost as good as it tastes after that you are offered a dessert menu then the server comes back and asks you wjat you would like and they bring it to you within 20 minors of ordering it and you eat it and it tasts hevanly!!!! Of corse all dining expernces have to end with paying the bill witch is not going to be cheap but all in all it was totally worth it!!!! I give it a 9 star rating!!!!!
Christmas at the ove.
Though there were no tables for two at the window of George's at the Cove, we were nonetheless in a cozy, pleasant area of the Ocean Room. The waiter's wine suggestion was excellent, getting our Christmas dinner off to a great start.
Each course, from date salad to dessert was mouthwateringly good! Service was impeccable, neither rushed nor lagging.
The bill was $100 less than we'd paid to another city restaurant the night before for dreadful food and service! We're so glad we spent the holiday at George's!!!
Amazing Happy Hour!. Well this place is normally out of my budget but they just started this happy hour not too long ago and it is insane! I think its about as pricey as a PB happy hour! Except for you are sitting on a patio on top of San Diego!!! I got these amazing sole sliders with onion rings (not just normal onion rings.. these were fancy amazing onion rings) for $7! and a glass of chardonnay for $6 so it ended up not being that bad and the view.. omg.. Highly Recommend!! :0)
Consistently one of the Best Restaurants in San Diego.
First time I went there was in the late 80's when I was eleven and the maitre'd made me put on a jacket from their coat closet. It was a very proper place back then and surprisingly it was rumored to be owned by the mob. Recently the formality has eased but it is still a very fine restaurant and one should wear a coat though it is not required.
Over the last few years we have gone there often for family occasions. Twice I?ve had the Beef Tenderloin with gorgonzola cream sauce. By far my most favorite on the menu. And surprisingly filling. Others in my party have had the duck and the salmon, which I sampled and both were excellent. The appetizers I?ve tried were the Lobster Bisque and the oysters on the half shell, which were served with a delicious cocktail sauce. And I?ve had a number of different salads, each unique with their various accoutrements. My mother said that the foie gras was exceptional though she was upset after I told her how it was made. I for one plan on getting it next time. Sorry PETA
I do have to say that I was disappointed in the bouillabaisse which seemed too loaded with mussels and other undesirable fish.
Service is excellent and the various staff is attentive and accommodating.
Besides the food, the true highlight of Mr. A?s is the panoramic evening views from the dining room. Mr A?s sits a top a building that nears downtown and the airport. The atmosphere is genteel yet the elegant setting is calming and pleasant. If you are in search of a fine dining experience at a classic restaurant then I recommend Mr. A?s.
Boycott this restaurant to help stop animal cruelty!.
The Animal Protection and Rescue League asks you to boycott this restaurant to help stop animal cruelty.
Mr. A's continues to serve fois gras, the liver of ducks or geese which have endured weeks of force feeding, performed by jamming large metal pipes down their throats and filling them with massive quantities of food. This is the equivalent of forcing a 150 pound human to eat 60 pounds of food per day.
The livers of these poor birds swell up to ten times their normal size, inducing a disease that veterinarians call "hepatic lipidosis". These fattened, diseased livers are served as foie gras.
Please call Mr. A's and inquire if they are still serving fois gras. If so, then please let them know that you choose to patronize restaurants which do not engage in this horrific cruelty.
Your call will make a difference!
Generally great food, not worth the money, though.
My boyfriend & I spent the weekend in San Diego to celebrate my birthday. We live in Chicago. On the eve of my b'day my boyfriend took me to Mister A's. At the time of reservations, he asked for a nice table as that we were celebrating. Well, we initially showed up 15 minutes late because we could not find valet. (Being from Chicago we just assumed valet would be available at the entrance.) I'm told they DO have valet, but it's at the back of the building (based on their address.) Funny thing is, we drove by that garage entrance TWICE and didn't see a booth, sign or valet person. We found meter parking.
We waited about 10 minutes and then were seated. There were a few empty tables so I'm not sure why we waited so long. Not to mention, we were NOT placed by a window, but were placed directly next to the bar. A large group that was waiting to be seated commadeered a 4 seater next to us, some standing because there were not enough seats and chatted loudly over drinks. I honestly think we were given the worst seats in the house as punishment for my boyfriend having the audacity to ask for a nice table. (We were given a glass of champaign as apology for the loud group.)
We ordered the mac n cheese as an appetizer. I personally love truffle sauce (Rockit's truffle fries in Chicago are to DIE for), but this mac n cheese was TERRIBLE. It had WAY TOO MUCH truffle sauce and nothing much else. The waiter did give this to us for free after we were asked how we liked it and we said we did not.
The veal medallians entree was very good and I do recommend that. I ate every bite and was extremely pleased. The food wasn't as good as you find at Delirio's in La Jolla, but still good. The creme brulee was the best I've ever tasted. So, all in all, the food was quite good, but for the price it should have been!!
I should mention the service was fantastic. We were served by Chase and were sure to give him a big tip. We loved him!
All in all, though, not worth the money.
My friends and I went to Mister A's as part of San Diego's restaurant week. This is a week where San Diego's best restaurants serve a 3 course meal at a set price to attract new diners. My friends and I love to fine dine and we chose Mister A's as a new place to try.
I have been reading the reviews of Mister A's and was very excited.
The good : The views and ambiance are amazing. The restaurant is on the 12th floor and has a panoramic view of the downtown and San Diego harbor. They have excellent window seating as well as an outside patio to enjoy a drink before or after your meal.
The service is also very good. The staff gives you a real fine dining experience and is very attentive to the diners.
The bad : The food was very disappointing. I expected the chef to impress us and want us coming back for more. I ordered the Kobe beef, as this is a type of meat that I don't get to indulge in much. To my surprise, the meat was cold and the bernaise sauce was bland. The steak was also too tough for me. I realize Kobe beef is supposed to be cooked rare (I've had it before), but I was surprised that I wasn't asked how I would like it prepared. The potatoes were also undercooked and didn't have much flavor. I ate about 6 bites of the main course.
The desert was okay, I had a creme Brule. But in the end, the rave reviews did not meet my expectations and I will not be coming back. For the amount of money I ended up spending, I felt ripped off. Go there for the ambiance and a drink but enjoy a meal at some of the other fine restaurants in San Diego.
Perfect service and perfect food.
Love this place. Most incredible service of any restaurant in san diego.
Wow, if you want a dinner to remember go to this place.
And the view is like no other, over looking all od San Diego.
I had the seafood. Deserts are the best also.
Must try this place. Men wear a suit, woman dress your best!!!
