Contemporary French / American
Mister A's is the penthouse, fine-dining destination of San Diego, and has been for over 50 years. Located just a few minutes from downtown, you will take the elevator to the top floor and look back out over jetliners sweeping past at eye level, the San Diego skyline, bay and Pacific, while enjoying Modern American cuisine, hand-crafted cocktails, and one of Wine Spectator's top-rated wine lists in the country. The culinary staff hand-selects local farm produce and the highest quality ingredients in every category to offer you selections that are made from scratch in house for brunch, lunch, dinner.. or simply the finest rooftop drinks and appetizers in town.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Stephane Voitzwinkler

This plush penthouse escape—open since 1965—reached new heights after a dramatic redesign. Thanks to a freshly added lounge, diners have better access to its skyline views. The French-American restaurant highlights local produce in throwback dishes like grilled blue prawns with charred shishitos and pan-roasted Alaskan halibut with corn.

    Our first time there and we were not disappointed. Absolutely great service. Our server Benjamin was fantastic. Very friendly, attentive and always making sure we had what we needed. Another staff member who was not assigned to our table, yet helped us with a couple of things, Dallen (sp?). Before we left he came back to our table saying he hopes that we enjoyed the evening at Mr. A's. Folks like Benjamin and Dallen makes it wanting to go back, which we will.

    This place was great! -I love that they enforced a dress code. Don’t wear shorts to a nice place like this guys. -stunning view from every table. -perfect sized menu with a variety of different high quality options but not so much it’s hard to choose or takes forever to decide. -service was very kind and professional. Always checking in and not rushing us through our drinks or plates. ..my only note is one of the drinks we ordered came in a tiki cup that looked like it should have been served at Disney land. Seemed very out of place for a nice adult restaurant like that. The drink was great but odd to have this giant plastic tiki cup. I was happy when it left the table.

    Stunning view. Graceful service. Food delicious though fairly conventional. Somewhat expensive but reasonable in light of setting and service. A great choice as a special event restaurant. Terrific wine list with reasonable mark up.
