Food was good overall; The Beet & Goat Cheese Salad was the only disappointment. Three slices of bland golden beets on a large salad of greens with some goat cheese tossed on top...

Our waitres was so terrific. We had just gotten out of the hospital and needed a bland diet. She was able to offer us great options. And it was only 2 blocks from the Marriott where we were staying.

Food and service was outstanding, particularly the Ahi Taco's, wow. Tables felt crowded in and the noise level was also a bit high which makes it lively, but also difficult to have a private conversation. Two entrances seem unfortunately necessary but makes it awkward for some tables (including ours) that constantly had people walking/standing by us. Had I known I would have asked for a table away from the path between the two entrances. They might want to consider some sort of divider. Again the food and service was outstanding so the minor inconvenience I mentioned above would not keep me from recommending or visiting again.

Centrally located in the Nicolet Mall area, this eatery has a great "American" menu that should appeal to most diners. It is also located very close to the Mary Tyler Moore statue. Food is good to very good, but not spectacular. Service during our meal was top notch. Prices are in the mid-range and commensurate with food quality.

This was my first and last visit to Mission. I went with high hopes. The waitress seemed to be brand new and very out of it. The food came at all different times. The crab cakes were frozen inside. The salad drenched in dressing, the rice was mushy... the shrimp was crunchy and over battered.

Mission was fantastic. We ended up here after a bad experience at another restaurant before a concert left our group short on time. The staff was incredibly responsive, food was excellent all around and turned our evening around. Thank you Mission!

I’m hoping it was just an off night...seated at 5:15 and only a few other tables...drinks took 20 minutes and 2 were incorrectly made and after an hour our food had not arrived. Disappointing!

It was dinner at 5pm prior to the Eagles concert. It did not feel like they were properly prepared. We did not get the bread before the meal as we saw everyone around us getting. Service was slow. Some other patrons did not even get their order taken until the guest sought out a server.

Meet friends before going out for the evening. All ordered different entrees. All four entrees were salty beyond help. The Filley mignon was tender with beef flavor but very salty, prime rib was tender but salty, pork tenderloin was ok and salty, scallops were tender and very salty and the brussels sprouts were strong flavored and salty.
Will not be going back.

Ordered walleye for dinner, at waitress’ recommendation. It was over cooked, dry and tasteless. The bean and carrot mix that came along side was undercooked. A most disappointing dinner, for $28. I regret not sending it back. (The beet/goat cheese salad was v good)

This was an excellent location with close parking. Beautiful ambiance, well decorated and comfortable. Unusual menu selections with interesting wine parings. Excellent service but not intrusive. Upscale without being over priced.

Went for a business lunch. Sandwiches were mediocre for the price. The tables were pretty close to each other so its hard to maneuver from the table to the bathroom and back. It wasn't a bad experience, it was just mediocre.

It was our first visit to Mission American after attending a play at the Orpheum. We are season ticket holders and like to try a different restaurant after each play. All of us thought
the food was excellent...from a vegetarian to a beef eater. On a Saturday evening we enjoyed half-priced wine bottles! Tried 3 different desserts which were so very delicious.
But what added to our enjoyment, was the service we received from Will which was OUTSTANDING. We definitely will return and highly recommend Mission American Kitchen & Bar.

The food was just okay. Appetizers were pretty good but my prime rib was chewier and tougher than good prime rib should be and the mashed potatoes were quite bland. The cake we ordered for dessert was very blah. Service was good.

Had the lunch fish special, blackened cod with mashed potatoes and broccoli. It was perfectly prepared and tasted great. Hard to choose between this, the Ahi Burger and luncheon omelet. This is a great business lunch spot and also has a fantastic happy hour.

As always, good and service was superb!

Although they may need to consider a role just for the host as I waited several minutes waiting for someone to greet and seat me for my reservation!

Otherwise great experience!

Had a terrible experience at Jacques for drinks (Marquette Hotel) so decided to try Mission rather than spending our money where were treated terribly. We sat at the bar and William was great, he was engaging, friendly, and made a great drink. Our party of 4 spent about 2 hours trying various drinks before we sat for dinner. The food was amazing the young lady that waited on us was wonderful too. Try Mission, you won't regret it.

Terrible “white cheddar stuffed burger” — stale bun, no seasoning, no taste, mediocre fries — all for only $16?! What a waste of money. My guest ordered her burger cooked “medium” and half of it was rare. Yuck. Will never return.

Ceasar was good.
Rissotto was absolute mush, rice baby food.
Zero flavor in the Mac and Cheese.
Green beans still all had stems and strings.
