  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "The waitress had no personality and spoke too softly to hear. But other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. Great ambiance and great food."

  • "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."

  • "Wonderful place to meet with friends, the patio is beautiful, the food amazing and there is so much choice on the brunch buffet, everything from eggs to steak and everything in between, just loved it. Not cheap but so many choices."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "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."

  • "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! "

  • "Outstanding venue for a special occassion. The staff is polite, professional and very helpful. The brunch is delightful for any occassion and the other restuarants are superb. 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."

  • "I used a debit card to pay for my meal. The bill came to 99.00 dollars and I decided to leave a tip of !4.00 dollars in cash. I was surprised and felt a little ripped off when my card bill came in at 114.00. I think if you are going to include the tip in your billing you need to breakout the tip and include it plainly when you are paying the bill. In this case the average service I received I ended up paying 28.00 for a tip.. I am feeling ripped off."

  • "The buffet is what you would expect, decent food but nothing I would go nuts for. It's just nice to be inside the Mission Inn, it's a lovely location."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "On the day we went, the weather was perfect to sit outside in the restaurant courtyard. We chose the lunch buffet which was a huge mistake because the theme was Chinese food. Beef broccoli, lo mein noodles, orange chicken and fried rice. The food was dry or way over sauced with sauces that were way too sweet or thick. Next time, I will definitely order something that is made to order from the menu. As it was, we paid a lot of money for really bad Chinese food. But thankfully the ambiance was amazing as was the service. So it wasn't a total loss. "

  • "My husband picked The Mission Inn for my friends and I to celebrate a birthday. The Mission Inn is so beautiful. The customer service is excellent. Very friendly and attentive. We ate outside for lunch. All three of us ordered the buffet lunch which included lunch and soft drinks. We ordered the white peach Margarita and it was delicious. The lunch was excellent, the food very good and we all enjoyed it so much. Our server was very good and attentive with us. I highly recommend coming here for lunch."

  • "Simply the best place in Riverside to dine, especially on our special night together. We almost felt as though we had gone to Italy, sitting outdoors in the Spanish Patio and being waited on by Gerardo, the wonderful waiter. All was perfect from the food to the wine to the service. "

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch at Mission Inn. There was a wonderful variety of food choices on the buffet, all which were fresh and replenished frequently. In addition, the service was excellent! Our drinks, including champagne, were refilled and our used plates were cleared in a timely manner. The price was very reasonable considering the selection of items on the buffet (e.g., prime rib, shrimp and crab legs, etc.), and when compared to similar brunch buffets. We actually travelled here from Orange County because it was a much better value than anything we could find locally. We will definitely return and would highly recommend to our others."

  • "I took my daughter and mother to the Mission Inn for lunch on Saturday. We were seated next to a dirty table with breakfast dishes. During our entire lunch the dishes at the table next to us remained there. The breakfast dishes at the other tables around us were finally cleared but the one’s next to us were not. A large group was seated and bread was immediately given to the table. Finally after we were almost through our meal I asked for bread. It wasn’t until my dish was picked up that someone cleared the table next to us. "

  • "Our group enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service was friendly and professional. The selection of foods and desserts was outstanding. Can't say enough about the environment/atmosphere inside and outside the hotel. It was relaxing and we did not feel rushed as we took our time eating our meal. I was surprised to find we had been seated inside rather than out in the patio. Our reservations were made for the patio, but since we originally wanted to be seated inside it worked out even better. "

  • "Great for Mothers Day. Food was delightful, cold items were cold and hot items hot. Service was excellent. Too bad they added the gratuity to the bill, I would have tipped more."

  • "This was our visit. We sat in the NE corner if the 100 year old patio for a very romantic dinner celebrating Mother's Day( on the Saturday night before). Rene was an outstanding server! The food excellent without being pretentious. I had the salmon my wife the fillet. We shared and enjoyed. The bread pudding is the best in SoCal!"

  • "I brought my mom here for an early Mothers Day dinner. We had a very lovely time and enjoyed walking around the hotel. The service was a bit slow and we waited quite a bit before the waiter came to out table. Our reservations were for 4:00 pm so there were only a few patrons in the restaurant."

  • "I truly enjoy dining at the Mission Inn Restaurant, it's a BEAUTIFUL place. However, our server was aloof and distracted, we had to ask multiple times for refills, only to ask a bus-boy who was right on it. The Seafood Buffet line lacked in choices, nor was the food hot. We ordered two "specialty" drinks; the Queen of the Air and the Handcuff Martini, neither were worth the price, they tasted like rubbing alcohol. It took the server 30 minutes to bring us our check after we requested it. The worst part were all the tourists taking flash after after photos of their food and friends, super annoying. "

  • "I took 3 gals to lunch for a birthday and we all decided the buffet for 18.00 was a good choice. The food taste was way below standard for a place like that. The chicken nor the salmon had any flavor. A very small salad bar, that they top with a shrimp. YEAH!! The deserts were pretty and tasty but come on Mission Inn, your suppose to be of quailty. Couldn't find any there that day. Maybe off the menue would of been better???"

  • "Had a very wonderful time. Our server was super nice. She even took pics for us. Checked on us at the right time and brought our bill just at the right moment. Food was great. Could have had a bit more selection. Desserts were yummy! Especially the bread pudding. Fruit was perfect. Overall I would definitely visit again soon! "

  • "Nothing was done by the restaurant for the birthday celebration noted on our reservation. Our experience was just a series of missteps with food and service. Two of my five guests thought the food was mediocre. When I sent back a too rare steak, it came back much later when the waitress also had food for another table. She walked past our table and served all the other food first. Staff adjusted the patio umbrella for the table next to us and put us in the sun until we mentioned it. Dessert menus were brought to only half the table even though only one guest ordered the buffet with dessert included. My guest that ordered the buffet said that her food was great! "

  • "I had a delightful lunch on the patio with two of my coworkers. I ordered the reasonably priced Quesadilla Ranchera. The salsa and sour cream were very fresh and light. The patio was sunny and warm with birds chattering and the fountain trickling - it was very pleasant. "

  • "My husband and I came here for our anniversay and will be coming back for sure! You can't go wrong with endless champagne and brunch. We had the egg benedict and waffles- both really good. I also had the shrimp ceviche, scallop ceviche, bacon, flank steak, mashed potatoes, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, apple tart dessert, and hashbrowns (weren't seasoned very well). But overall, this place was great! I loved the outdoor seating, and our server, George, was great! Definitely worth the price, and we'll be coming back soon!"
