Diner Reviews
  • "We waited an hour for water and coffee but, if you're not in a hurry, brunch is pretty good here."

  • "For some reason, I couldn't get at table for one at 8 PM and had to settle for an hour later. I thought the restaurant would be packed, but when I got there I found it less than half full. Was a bit disappointed when the black bean soup described on the online menu was no longer available and more so when the waiter misheard my appetizer order and brought the cheese & tortilla rather than the chorizo, cheese, & tortilla. The dish was good. The Cubana burger I got for my entree was very tasty and so large it had to be eaten with knife and fork. Had two Mission margaritas and ended my meal with a spicy jalapeno-pineapple one. I will certainly return to Mission."

  • "I went here for the first time on Sunday, July 20th and loved it so much that I had to come back on the 21st. The margaritas are great (especially during happy hour!). I loved my frozen strawberry one (I hadn't had a good one in years). I got the 3 tacos (pork, chicken, steak) and they were amazing - definitely the best tacos I've ever had. The service there is great, the atmosphere is great, and the music selection was great as well. I can't mention enough how amazing the food was - seriously to die for. Love this place and I can't wait to go back again in the future."

  • "The music at the downstairs bar and dining area is way too loud. It's hard to carry a conversation. Otherwise, it's a great place."

  • "Mission looks gorgeous outside at night - beautiful lights, lots of outdoor seating, and a nice ambiance inside too. We had dinner on a Friday night (late). The salsa was delicious, the guacamole that we ordered spicy could have been spicier, and my shrimp tacos came out warm but not hot. I would go again but maybe ask for extra-spicy guacamole and something with melted cheese on top (which tends to keep things warmer!) I did like that this is one of the only places in DC where you can get decent food at a decent price - a full plate with tacos, main plate etc and rice and beans - for only $13-15 (as opposed to $25-45!)"

  • "Overall a great experience. The service was fast and accurate. The hostess was very flexible and understanding when some of our party was running late for our reservation. We had a large group of people and they put us in a room that was slightly separated from the main dinning floor. This was perfect room for conversation among a large group. Our server was great. He checked in on us frequently and the food came out of the kitchen very quickly, especially considering the size of our party. I would definitely go back."

  • "This was my second time at Mission and I'm trying so hard to like the restaurant because it is such a cool scene. The service has been absolutely terrible both times though. Our table did not get acknowledged by a waiter for at least 15 minutes (the second time I had to go ask the hostess if anyone knew we had been seated - even though our table was smack dab in the middle of the dining room). After that it took an additional 10 minutes to get our water and chips. Our waitress seemed stressed and uninterested in serving us. The meal I ordered first came out incorrectly. In general the ambiance is great the bar seems like an awesome scene but the food is mediocre and certainly not worth suffering through the terrible service."
