The most spectacular views in San Diego can be found at Bertrand at Mr. A's just minutes from Downtown and is far from an ordinary dining experience. We were pampered with an extremely attentive staff and enticed with the finest cuisine. As we dinned views of the beautiful San Diego skyline, San Diego Bay, Balboa Park, Coronado, Point Loma and even the world famous San Diego Zoo came into focus
This lovely restaurant was Recently featured by Gayot.com for MSN as one of the Top 10 Penthouse Restaurants in the United States.
Award winning Chef De Cuisine Stephane Voitzwinkler did a great job in offering a fresh and tantalizing menu with American , French and Mediterranean influences that complemented the stunning view from the outside patio.
Owner Bertrand was Born in rural southwest France, Bertrand studied economics at the University of Toulouse. After college, his studies took him to America where he made his way to the west coast, always deriving income by waiting tables in French restaurants.
He started his own restaurant career in La Jolla, in 1973, as the managing partner of Le Cote d'Azur. In over a decade, Bertrand became involved in the ownership of several restaurants: Mon Ami, La Mediterranean, Bertrand's and La Maison du Lac
In 1984, on his own, Bertrand bought the property he coveted for years: Mille Fleurs, in Rancho Santa Fe. His commitment and belief in utmost freshness and quality, soon made Mille Fleurs San Diego's premier restaurant. Mille Fleurs has attracted national attention & awards (being named top 25 in America by Food & Wine magazine), helping to bring San Diego's dining scene to the forefront.
Bertrand wanted to add a metropolitan restaurant to his restaurant portfolio and had always loved the tremendous location and potential of the legendary Mister A's. He was able to purchase the lease in 2000 and completely redesigned the restaurant, which is now one of the toughest reservations in San Diego.
We stopped in at this lovely venue and enjoyed a nice meal of delicious Kobe Beef Sliders and of course some Fresh Swordfish sliders as we watched the sunset over San Diego Bay with a nice glass of wine.
Once thought of as a place for just special occasions where jackets were required, one can now enjoy casual elegance among friends for lunch , happy hour and dinner as you dine on great food with one of the best views overlooking San Diego.
