    Without saying a word they took my credit card and automatically added 18% gratuity for the two of us. I am under the opinion that a gratuity is for service that I decide the amount of the gift, I do not leave an $11.00 tip for a buffet where they brought me some water and took away my dishes. I am sure for those who didn't notice they got extra as they didn't tell you they were doing that.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I have to say that this was a Thanksgiving dinner and I understand it was a super busy day. The crew at the entrance of the restaurant were very kind and I appreciate the effort on that due to the many people that were waiting to get it. We pay at front bcs it was a buffet menu. My only complain is that the waitress who supposedly was in charge of our table, which name is Brenda, only served us once. We had to ask four times to a different waiters to refill our coffees. That was the only thing that make our dinner unpleasant .

    Mission Grille was recommended to me for a breakfast meeting. I was surprised how many people were waiting for a table. There were only two of us but thankfully I had made reservations. We ordered off the menu instead of the buffet. I was very disappointed in the food - which isn't cheap. My omelet was dry and the crust on my toast was burnt. The waiter was ok, nothing special. There were two instances were food was delivered to us that wasn't ours. Since they are located in a nice hotel and close to Moscone, they get a lot of convention traffic. If you want to meet over a meal, it's a good place to go. No one will be heads-down eating. If you just want breakfast, go somewhere else.

    When in San Francisco for conferences, this is the IDEAL place to plan for meetings. The servers know when to take orders, take care of refills and pick up plates while you're managing meetings w/your customers. I have spent 3-4 hours there when I had meeting after meeting. I will always go back! Management, hosting and service personnel got to know my name. It made it personal and so very pleasant.

    This seems like a decent place for a business breakfast in San Francisco. It is large, spacious, and has a couple of quiet areas if you needed to have a substantive conversation. Plus, it seemed good for groups of 5-10 people as well if you had a group event. The food was poor quality and taste - I had an open face omelet and it was fairly tasteless; the quality of the bread and the jam were substandard. My breakfast for two people came to $48 with a 15% tip, and man, it was not worth it. But, if you can't find a place for a business breakfast...

    We held an effective lunch meeting here. The setting was quiet enough for us to hear one another. The servers were discreet and efficient and did not interrupt our meeting, except as truly necessary. The food was brought out promptly. Our meeting started early, and they accommodated our need to begin using the table well before we ordered.

    Great place to have a business breakfast meeting when in San Francisco. When I was there, it was packed and our server disappeared for long periods. That worked out ok because we were there to talk (and she had brought a pot of coffee); it was only in convenient when it was time to pay the check!

The ambiance needs some improving to give a bit more of a holiday feel to the environment. Overall we will not return for an encore.

    Our visit was for the Thanksgiving Buffet, so I can't speak to the usual menu or service. Service was timely at first - removing plates, etc. but became less so as our meal progressed. We had to request silverware more than once. The roast beef & ham were in abundance, but the turkey carver was working assiduously on one remaining drumstick with no new bird in sight!

    My son and I went to their Thanksgiving Buffet. For $59 a person (plus tax and tip), we went in with high expectations. I can honestly say that everything was bad: food, workers' enthousiasm, ... The stuffing was awful, the turkey was of low quality and so was the roast beef. The carvers were trying to give people the minimum and definitely were not friendly. The food was just bad. To top it, the desserts were of very low quality. As far as service goes, the waiters did come often to clean up the tables, but they were distant and made no attempt to connect. Had it been priced at $30, this would have been a bad experience. At $59, it was a _very_ bad experience. What a waste of our thanksgiving meal together.

    Dined on 11/26/2009
    We attended the Thanksgiving Day buffet expecting a nice mid-day family treat prior to volunteering to serve Thanksgiving to the homeless at a local shelter in the Tenderloin. It was very expensive for the mediocre quality and variety of the food comprising the buffet. The ambiance was loud, impersonal, and not at all festive. The experience cost us nearly $400 for 4 people, including a pricey but modest bottle of wine. This was a very overpriced hotel restaurant experience that offered nothing at all special or memorable for the holiday, contrary to the internet advertisement. In hindsight, we should have eaten our family meal with the people we cooked for and served later that evening; that was the most memorable part of the day.

    Unfortunately, I was very dissapointed in this restaurant. Maybe I should have stuck with steak. Instead I chose the veal parmesean with risoto. What I received was a ceramic dish covered in cheese with a little risotto and veal mixed in. The tomatoes that topped the veal were salty. The veal was tough and difficult to cut, though it was extremely thin. There was way too much cheese. So much so, that the risoto was swiming in oil. I was really disappointed. Won't be trying this place again.
