    This new restaurant is a perfect addition to Castro Street. They have figured out a perfect blend of dinning meets atmosphere meets fun - and the food will surprise you every time ! Enjoy !! (and check out the fabulous game room too !)

    Great place to eat before going to the theater. Very close to Mountain View Center for Performing Arts. Service was excellent. Enjoyed the pork chop and crab cakes. Lamb balls were only OK.

    We have been to Mixx for happy hour and for dinner. Mixx has a great daily happy hour with discounted drinks and apps. The dinner menu has something for everyone, our foursome had duck, a burger, chicken,a few small plates, wine, beer and a cocktail. All satisfactory. Our server made recommendations and was attentive. This location was never busy when owned by Scott's but that clearly is not the case under the new ownership (same as Max's Cafes). There is a great addition to downtown Mountain View.

    Our group enjoyed the fun presentations. The menu is a bit too limited, so that will keep us from coming back too often. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The waiter told us that the chef doesn't make menu changes. After a little chat with the manager, we did get something changed. We were at Mixx 1 month after opening. I'm sure they will adjust the amount of staff/kitchen staff to speed up service.

    Great food, friendly staff, but they have to get their act together - had to send back the "flaming Mojitto" to get it aflame! Appetizers came in spurts and last appetizer came after our entree! But the saving grace was their food - fresh seafood, well cooked and innovative dishes, and outstanding presentation! Even their play on coffee and donuts for the desserts was inspired!!! Will definitely be going back, hopefully they will improve on their food service issues by then.

    The food was very good, although the menu is a bit too "foodie" in some cases (e.g., the salad has "runny egg" in it) and the chef is unwilling to make substitutions (I ordered sole with risotto & was told I could not substitute greens for the risotto). The service, however, needs serious attention. Our server was unfamiliar with the bar and wine menu, the appetizers took over 45 minutes to arrive, one of the appetizers didn't arrive/had to be re-ordered, and we had to remind them several times to bring items we'd ordered. Overall, the operations seemed to be running poorly (they mentioned the kitchen was backed up; server seemed frazzled). I'm bumping them up to three stars (good) because the management proactively reduced the bill.

    The food was good and diversified. Not a romantic or classy type of restaurant, but more of a sports bar/casual atmosphere. My honey ginger ribs were an excellent hors de ouvre and the short ribs were delicious. The caesar salad was a bit over drenched with dressing.

    Mixx has turned out very well. We were very pleasantly surprised by the updated food choices. We started out with the butter lettuce salad which was terrific. We also had a ceasar salad that was good too. My wife and I shared some small plates. The crab cakes were terrific as were the lamb meatballs. The stuffed squash was good. The three small plates were plenty for the two of us. Our son had the flank steak and frites. It was cooked as ordered but he felt is was a little too salty. The frites were fresh and crispy. This is definitely a place we will return to soon.

    We went to Mixx with high hopes.......we were disappointed. The space is big, empty on the Saturday night and dark. On the upside, it was quiet enough to talk! The bar menu is great and the specialty cocktails were quite good. For starters, we had "Lotsa Chips with Crab Dip". Dip was great......the chips were a small portion. We also ordered the lettuce wraps....ice cold and no flavor although the dipping sauces were good. Two of us ordered chicken with waffles....very soggy waffles. One had the tofu stir fry and thought it was okay. Two had the cheeseburgers and thought they were good. We had specialty coffees for dessert and one of us had the cookie ice cream sandwich. It was fine. I'd go back for drinks but not for dinner.

    Mixx replaces Scott's which replaced Cantankerous Fish. It's run by the folks who run Max's Deli and Scott's still has an interest in it. The menu is quite varied with dishes you might not find elsewhere. The restaurant has been remodeled from Scott's and is quite comfortable. Service was great. We had a light lunch of crab cakes (nicely made with plenty of crab), lacquered duck legs and wings (very good) and matzoh ball soup (OK but not as good as Max's). They also have a Happy Hour that's worth checking out.

    There were 8 of us and we ordered four different entrees and all were delicious and served hot. One suggestion. I love the outdoor area, but they need to add a couple more heaters!

    Scotts Seafood in Mountain View has now changed to MIXX. The menu is good, with a lot of choices, but not too many that it makes it impossible to choose. I got the half chicken and I enjoyed it. Someone else in my group got the chicken and waffles and loved it. The service was sub par. We ordered a beer and it didn't come for at least 30 min. The waitress never came and checked in on us, and the manager and owner didn't check in on us until after we got our food. It took about an hour from ordering to get the food. All in all, it was a good experience, minus the service.

    The food was good, as was the wine we had; wine list is a bit short by the glass, but we weren't picky We got the roast chicken and duck. Both dishes had highlights (sauces). Duck was a bit overcoooked, but otherwise food was solid. The greens with the duck, sauce, roasted plums were all. Prices higher than expected for what they provide though. Had bananas Mixx for dessert - this was awesome. Banana medallions were just excellent! Salted caramel ice cream bit too salty for me but the wife liked it. Ambience could use a little attention; it felt too loud / almost bar style, less intimate than I would want for what they charge Service was great, had multiple servers come by and take care of us, suggest things, explain the food, etc.
