    The ambience of this place is very special. The food was good and the service provided was very friendly and prompt. We don't get there often, but it is a lovely place to celebrate a wedding anniversary or birthday.

    From Echo park, San Diego and Palm Springs all met at the MIssion Inn in Riverside. We had a great visit. We are all from Chicago, and spending time in CA. Such an easy spot to get too. We arrived at 11 a.m. and were greeted warmly. Outdoor dining, great salsa and chips, and delicious fish tacos for me. Enchiladas delicioso for one, chile rellenos for another, tortilla soup, and carnitas. Great choices. We'll meet again and at Las Campanas. .

    Well, was I pleasantly surprised. I 'd eaten here many times and found it just ordinary but it had been over five years. It looks like The Mission Inn has upgraded all its restaurant and Las Campanas has benifited from it. The restaurant looks beautiful and the food is very good. Tableside made guacamole was terrific and the fajitas, quesadilla, chicken enchiladas were all superb! The food was so good we're booking a Chistmas time Sunday brunch for next month - nothing prettier than The Inn at Christmas time.

    Did not realize they only have outdoor seating. It was cold the day we dined. A lot of their outdoor heaters were not working. It ended up being somewhat uncomfortable. For the prices they charge And the fact it only offers outdoor seating I would expect more as far as having working outdoor heaters. Food was good.

    We love coming to the Mission Inn with out of town guests. Las Campanas is an excellent place to enjoy wonderful food, a beautiful outdoor patio with lovely trees and plants, fountains and twinkling lights and excellent service. A walk around the hotel and surrounding area makes it a perfect evening. Our friends and family are always delighted!

    Las Campanas is a beautiful restaurant in a lovely outdoor setting at the Mission Inn, Riverside. The food is wonderful. The enchiladas with green sauce were great, lots of tender chicken with lots of cheese. Portion was more than enough for lunch. The service is over the top. Have lunch or brunch any chance you get and take a walk through the Mission Inn. A treat all around!

    We have dined here many times over the years as the setting in early evening is very charming. Unfortunately, management installed new ultra bright, garish LED lighting wrapped around all the palm trees on the patio. It just doesn't have the same vibe. We ordered the crispy taco plates and drinks. It beef filling was supposed to be shredded but it was chopped, tough and over cooked. The total tab for two taco plates, two glasses of wine, tax and tip was $80.00, plus valet parking $12.00 including tip, total $92.00. I think the Mission Inn staff can do better for this price.

    We were staying at the Mission Inn and decided to have dinner at Las Campanas our second evening. The patio setting is lovely with white lights around the numerous palm trees. The menu is fairly small but we both found items we enjoyed. I had pork verde and my husband had carnitas. Both were good and the portions were larger than we could eat. We thought it was a little expensive but probably not out of line for a hotel restaurant.

  • FLIES, Flies, flies
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/25/2014
    We sat outside and there were fly's everywhere. At one point we counted 16 fly' s on our table or chairs. These were big fly's. We constantly we swinging our hands and napkins so the fly's would stay out of our food. It was gross. We moved tables and it didn't matter the flys followed. We asked if they had anything to cover our food or to keep the fly's away and they said no. We finished eating quickly and left as soon as we could. This place needs fans or candles or something to keep the fly's away.

    2 1/2 hrs between the time we sat down & the time we left. We saw the waitress only when she took our order. 1 hr & 20 mins. later we received very old & very cold food. It had been left so long, crust formed on all the beans. We could not send it back or complain because no one else would help us and we could not find our server (She was not the person who brought the food). We had to get up & track her down for the check. Somebody else gave us the check. Although we ate almost nothing, we paid & left. We would have complained, but it did not seem anyone was interested. We were planning to have our wedding at the Mission. We will not be doing that now. We were entertaining out of town guests & were embarrassed that we took them here.

    The food was excellent, however could not enjoy it because of the heat. NO INDOOR dinning. Need to have misters or fans for hot evenings. Once our food came, the flies were very annoying and also led to unpleasant dinning. Not sure if we will try it again on a cooler night. We do not enjoy eating outside no matter what the climate is.

  • Drink but don't eat
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    We went there for a going away dinner for some of our closest friends. The server Elsa was great! Very attentive and accommodating. The drinks were really good and the food was just okay at best. The carnitas was EXTREMELY dry, the salmon was bland even though it was covered in 2 different sauces. The chile verde was okay I guess although I've had much better. We sent the carnitas back and the manager was gracious and gave us something else and took it off of our bill. He also gave us an additional 20% off. Overall, the service was great, they need a better chef because the food was not good. If you are looking for great drinks and atmosphere, go there but if you are looking for awesome food, look elsewhere.

    The patio area we were seated at was very nice. Unfortunately, since we went in early September it was very warm. The staff repositioned the umbrellas frequently to maximize shade areas as time went on. The service was courteous and professional, but really slow. After getting our first round of drinks our server disappeared for an unreasonable amount of time. It was not very busy, so I cannot give allowances for being short handed. The food was great, and served hot.

    My party and I showed 5 minutes til 6PM. Our drink order was honored at happy hour prices, that made us very happy. We were celebrating my mom's birthday the patio was very pretty. I'd only recommend that for birthdays and anniversaries offer a complimentary birthday dessert. The only option was to buy a pricey dessert or reasonably priced cupcake - it was nice that, after the dessert was ordered, it at least came with a candle.
