Bertrand at Mister A’s
2550 5th Ave #12, San Diego, CA 92103
If you’ve been in San Diego for any length of time, you will have certainly heard of Bertrand at Mister A’s. Considered the pinnacle of the fine dining experience in San Diego, from its perch on top of an office building you will be treated to dramatic views of downtown, the Coronado Bridge, and the bay.
The food is impeccably prepared. Start your meal off with a unique appetizer, fresh salad, or soup poured fresh at your table. The table bread is served warm and crispy, with a fluffy center. Some of the main course standouts include the rack of lamb, the prime beef filet, the duck, and the lobster. They are known for their truffle mac and cheese, which is very good. The truffle fries are also a standout.
They have an extensive dessert menu with a number of different signature creations, including ice cream and sorbet. As it was wintertime, they were serving pumpkin bread pudding, which was very good. Even a simple dish of ice cream was accompanied by a few macaroons.
All in all, a great dining experience for a special occasion, celebration, or birthday.
