Good but no greatThe food was good, and the atmosphere was great. We expected much more authentic food, like homemade tortillas or items on the menu that are not typically found in every chain mexican restaurant. The food was OK but a bit of a let down.
My husband and I had a great time and the ambiance was wonderful. The next day we found another mexican restaurant around the corner. It had excellent homemade mexican food with items like nopalitos that just brought home the mission experience.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely LunchWe had a wonderful lunch on their beautiful patio. Great food and equally great service.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!We've been here before and love it every time. The menu changes so there's new things to try. The ambience and visual appeal are outstanding. The wait staff are top notch.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Mexican cuisineWe have gone to this restaurant on the number of occasions. This time, we brought a sizable crew of family members celebrating a graduation. Although it was a hot day, shade was ample, and the food was fantastic, as always. Our group had Carnitas, enchiladas, tacos, and fajitas. Everything was perfectly clear, portion sizes were appropriate, and it was good value.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambianceThe place was great, it created peace very relaxing after a day at work6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor Dinning At iIs BestThe outdoor setting is one of the best in Southern California. The backdrop of the Mission Inn is simply beautiful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe host was not friendly.The host was not friendly. The wait staff was excellent, as well as the food.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood for TravelersLas Campanas is a decent hotel restaurant that has lovely outdoor ambiance. Unfortunately it is like many Mexican restaurants; in- authentic cuisine and a boring menu. I chose the most "traditional" dish - the chili verde pork. It was cooked to perfection but the rice was eehh and black beans were boring. The guacamole made at the table was very good as the avocados were perfectly ripe and the rest of the ingredients gave them a lovely flavor.
The set up makes you feel as if you are the only table so there was plenty of privacy. The wait staff was fantastic. We paid with cash, two credit cards and a charge to a room and our head waiter accepted this graciously. If I stay at the Mission Inn I might eat there again.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time with MomThe Ceviche was awesome, food and drinks were great. Chef Dios a long time friend came out to say hi. I'll definitely be back for more, keep up the great work.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. DisappointeThe food was very good. Disappointed that they no longer prepare their signature guacamole at the table anymore. Service was commendable. The atmosphere was delightfully refreshing in their outdoor patio.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIdeal for a groupThere were 12 of us at 2 tables -- excellent service, good food (although quantities were large). Carnitas with mole were delicious! Beautiful on a summer evening with all the lights!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust okIt was insanely hot in Riverside and they do not have misters. All the food was lukewarm. The chips were cold. The tortilla soup was a broth with 2 tiny pieces of ckn. Everytime we needed something we had to flag someone down. The service was BAD, the food lukewarm.We were told from an employee in The Mission Inn because of the heat we could sit inside the Lounge. He said tell them at the gate. I told the manager and he said NO!! He bit my head off. I felt he was very rude, it's not what you say, it's how you say it. He did come over later and apologize and said he could accomodate us just not on Mother's Day. Well hello that is when I would try to!! Sorry Mission Inn. Bad service, lukewarm food, and high prices= go somewhere else!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodDinner was so good we had a great time its in the missison inn in riverside,ca we will be going back again5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLos Campanas for Mother's Day!I LOVE the outdoor dining...the yummy tacos...and the margaritas! I only wish they would've had the "anniversary margarita" that was offered back in March - that was THE BEST!
We decided to take Mom here the Saturday before Mother's Day to avoid the crowds, and we able to find free parking within walking distance. Everything was great, although the tip money disappeared from the table before the meal was over - I have NO idea if the waiter took it early or it blew away, or what. Mom would've preferred that the chile rellano be served with sauce, but she still enjoyed the overall experience.
Great place for a group or special occasion. Beautiful ambience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT RESTAURANT AND EXCELLENT FOODThis was our first time to dine at Las Companas at the Mission Inn in Riverside. The whole evening was so enjoyable. The food was excellent and we had excellent service. Would definitely go back and highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good Mexican food in a beautiful setting.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Mission Inn is one ofThe Mission Inn is one of my favorite places to go for a special time. This happened to be my Wife's Birthday which falls on Cinco de Mayo, so a Mexican restaurant was in order. While I have ben to the other restaurants at the Mission Inn, this was the first time to Las Campanas. We were on time and they took us right in. Our waitress took our drink order right away, then we waited. The food and drinks were great. But for some reason service seemed very slow, might have been the Holiday. But the restaurant was not as crowded as I would have expected. Would still go back, perfect setting for a romantic meal.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great VisitWe always have a wonderful time at Las Campanas, but it was so nice to have reservations made through OpenTable. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we were seated pretty much right at that time! Otherwise we would have had to wait 45 min to an hour to be seated. The food and service was great as usual and we will definitely be going back again!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRiverside dinningLas Campanas, like all the dining at Mission Inn is great, the staff are outstanding and the food and wine excellent.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningGreat food, Great Service and what an atmosphere at the Mission Inn!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA beautiful place to eat lunch...Expensive for Mexican food, but the food was very good and the service was great!
