Diner Reviews
  • "The view, history, and great food. You can't miss......you WILL be satisfied!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "After living in Riverside 22 years, we finally decided to try the Sunday Champagne Brunch for our 29th Anniversary. We dined outdoors on the patio where there were plenty of umbrellas. It did get a little warm for us by the end of our meal but that IS Riverside in August! Next time we will come earlier to beat the heat. The hostess and servers were all very nice and professional. Of all the food we tried, everything was delicious! No complaints at all. Champagne, orange juice and water were constantly refilled without having to ask which is a big plus. We will be back! Not often for the price but for special occasion or visiting guests, yes!"

  • "Went here for our anniversary, first time here. Menu selection wasn't that huge, wound up going to the prime rib buffet there. Very nice setting, food was excellent. Would probably go here again."

  • "As promised, the Mission Inn has a spectacular Sunday Champagne Brunch. Plenty of tasty entrees to choose from, salads, and great omelets & Eggs Benedict to order. And the champagne just keeps flowing."

  • "DELIGHTFUL FOOD SURROUNDED BY THE RICH AND BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC MISSION INN...WHAT MORE CAN ONE ASK FOR?"

  • "This was our second time for brunch. We came several years ago, and the menu was huge and the cost was $35. The menu seemed a bit smaller this time. We enjoyed the food and the service. But it seemed a bit too pricey for what we received. There were 3 of us and the bill with tip, totaled 164.08. That's a lot of money for a buffet brunch. I realize this is the Mission Inn. The food was good but not worth $42 a person. A normal lunch buffet is $18. I think doubling that is fair, but $42 was over the top."

  • "Not to offend Riversiders, but I never would have expected such a nice venue in this city. The building and grounds are very nice. The Mission Inn Restaurant itself is very nice inside as well. The brunch buffet we had on Saturday was not especially gourmet, but we had no complaints about it. The salad bar was small, but nice and very fresh. The staff did a great job keeping everything stocked, especially the cold shrimp cocktail. Nice selection of bread at the table - we loved the cheesy crisp flatbread. The dessert table was also very nicely done. We were seated by the window looking out into the courtyard of the Mission and really enjoyed it."

  • "My wife and I dined on Friday, Aug.1st. She ordered the salmon entree off the menu and she thought it was excellent. I opted for the seafood buffet. The salad choices were crisp and fresh. The hot entrees I tried were the shrimp and rice, a baked salmon dish, and the pan sauted mussels. The shrimp was so over cooked it was like chewing bubble gum and flavorless. The salmon entree was also over cooked, mushy, and flavorless. The mussels were the only entree that was tasteful but it could have been much better if steamed in a wine broth. Overall the experience was only okay but not memorable like previous times we have dined there. The quality of the food was not up to par as it has been in the past."

  • "Unbelievable Sunday brunch. So much of a selection that it is impossible even to taste a bit of everything. Wonderful seafood bar, unlimited champagne and fresh squeezed orange juice, omelet bar, eggs benedict, waffles, prime rib, fresh fruit and salads, you name it. All of the food was superb, continually restocked. Unbelievable desserts, chocolate covered strawberries, cheesecake, crème brulee, and cinnamon rolls to die for. Must have reservations -- well worth the cost!! Elegant atmosphere inside and beautiful outdoor patio seating. Service was impeccable!!"

  • "One of those places that automatically adds service charge and makes no effort to let you know it's been added. Server also said "Do you want the soup or salad with that?" Not would you like to add a soup or salad, subtle difference, but when it's not included it shouldn't be asked that way."

  • "The Spanish Patio was a lovely place to sit and take in the architecture, wrought iron with baskets of flowers and an abundance of foliage. Very pretty setting. When dining out-of-doors we have to expect the residents to visit our table--we had flies, friendly little birds, and a bee that insisted on trying to find something (or someone) to nibble on. Everyone in our party of four very much enjoyed his/her meal. My husband, who is on an extreme heart-healthy diet thoroughly enjoyed the miso salmon--he said it was the best he's tasted. The waiter noted all of my husband's diet needs, and the meal was prepared just right for him. Thank you, Mission Inn Restaurant."

  • "We have children so we made sure to make reservations for 9:30 am 1 week ahead of time thinking that that would ensure that we were seated in a timely manner to prevent my children a long wait in the morning when they are hungry. We drove all the way from Chino Hills forty five minutes before the restaurant opened. I checked in early, before opening and before any other guest was present. Several walk in people then checked in and at least 8 parties were seated before us (we were a group of only 5, so it was because a large table had to be prepared). I felt that the reservations did not matter. Also, the $50 charged to my card to make the reservation was not applied to my bill as was promised. I won't make another reservation."

  • "Geraldo was our waiter and service was impeccable. The food was amazing. The brussell sprouts with the roasted chicken were out of this world. The patio dining is so romantic and tuscany. We sat next to the fountain and it was 6 star all around."

  • "This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. Our experience exceeded our expectations. Originally we were trying to make reso's at their steak house but the times we needed weren't available. The steak we had was the best steak I've ever had. The waiter also split our meal with no problems."

  • "I LOVE the Mission Inn. It is my absolute favorite restaurant. The setting is incredible at every time of year. The food is always delicious, the price is very reasonable, and service is always great. This is the most special possible place for holiday meals, for taking out-of-town visitors to, and for any time you just want a special, happy, beautiful place to have a great meal."

  • "We lived in Riverside about 50 years ago so it was interesting to see how well the Inn has been maintained. The wait staff were very accommodating, resetting the umbrellas as the sun moved, my glass was always full and the young lady who guided us to our table was especially gracious. Three of us had different dishes and all found them to be quite good. We plan to go there again perhaps when its just a bit cooler."

  • "We had an excellent time. Went for the buffet - I ate way too much and not as much as I wanted to. It was all delicious. I loved all the cheeses they had. Everything was fresh and well stocked. The service too was great. We were attended to at a distance, which I like: not too much interuption, but just enough to verify our needs. The waiter was also constantly friendly, even when we asked to change tables for a larger one."

  • "The quality of food was wonderful. Lots of options. The waffles were the best. The hotel is beautiful. The decor was so pretty and the whole hotel felt open... lots of natural light. It was spacious and the staff was friendly. We went for father's day and it was great. Definitely would recommend for brunch. Definitely coming back. Worth every penny!"

  • "This is a very busy place. We had reservations, so didn't have to wait. My only complaint is that the misters on the patio need repair. They had positioned umbrellas to direct drips away from diners, but it was impossible to not get dripped on. My purse got soaked. Finally they turned them off, no apologies."

  • "I have eaten many times at Mission Inn and always enjoy every thing. The staff is extremely friendly and do an excellent, professional job as if your table is the only one they have to service. I will continue to frequent the Mission Inn. I thank you very much for your quality service."

  • "We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time, but were seated immediately in the patio area. Although it was a little warm on that day, there was a slight breeze and we were comfortable. Water appeared as soon as we sat down, and the waitress came soon after with the "menu." My husband and I opted for the "buffet" and really enjoyed the "Asian themed food." My husband is partial to dessert and there was a wide selection to please his palate. He loves the bread budding!! Had memorable time! "

The Mission Inn is a world of it's own. And it's always fun to visit Casey's Cupcakes to purchase a six pack to go home with."
