I was so disappointed about every aspect of this restaurant. The food was no better than an Appleby's. Really bad. Really overpriced. Sorry, I've never given a bad review here or on Yelp before but this just had to be said.

Service was slow and indifferent. Wines overly expensive. Beef brisket was dry and stringy. At this price point, I expected better.

I went here for Valentine’s Day, and the food was great, I had the beet and goat cheese salad and my boyfriend has the prime rib. For dessert, I had a creme brûlée, it was amazing!

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.
Not good.

We stopped in for dinner prior to the Super Bowl festivities on Nicollet mall. We had a lovely meal and great wine. I had the chicken with spaghetti squash and it was REALLY flavorful. Loved it! Our server was very friendly but maybe new, or just too busy as he wasn't super attentive. It was all ok though, we enjoyed our meal and will definitely come back for another meal and/or drink.

We had never dined at Mission before and were kind of disappointed. Other than my husband's order of Halibut, the other three meals at the table were bland (2 orders of prime rib and one filet). The service was excellent though and the location was great as we were staying at the Marquette Hotel. I would not recommend this to a friend.

Service is always impeccable, we have had the same waiter (wish I had his name) the last two lunches and he is brilliant; has a great sense of humour and the right amount of attention. Due to flight schedules we were running behind, but they were able to get us in and food out quickly. The food was great as always and we will be back in a few weeks for our next lunch meeting.

Super quiet when we were there the Saturday before New Years. Truffle Cream Cheese wontons were great. Ahi Tuna appetizer was not. Entrees were particularly good!

Seamless reservation w/ open table, which is a massive benefit. No time wasted with looking up name, details, etc. I made the res perhaps 30 min before arriving. I was seated a few min before my res, a few min before noon on weekday. I noticed that the line to be seated populated quickly around noon. We were in a small booth in the bar area. Nice light, not loud. I could hear fine, which was great, because noise is a big issue for me. Meal was fine. We were served quickly, and my colleague was directed to me as soon as he arrived. Server was quick and professional. Couldn't have asked for better. The light of the windows in the bar area was a nice plus.

The Mission Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis always provides a great meal and service. It's great to go before a sporting event or the theatre. The food is spectacular, try the pork tenderloin. The service is always courteous, knowledgeable and friendly.

Service was excellent, food server paid the perfect amount of attention to table. He knew when to clear the plates and anticipated refills on drinks and good follow up to make sure we were enjoying our meal.

Stopped by for appetizers before a show and found the ambiance to be nice, the food very good, and the service also good. The location was great for a short walk to the Target Center. The maitre-d was often visible and made at least one pass to make sure we were doing well. We were pretty wrapped up in conversation, but everything seemed quite nice, tasteful, and tasty.

We were a little behind the 8 ball getting a reservation for this night, so we found what was available. I think I know why it was available. Our reservation was for 5pm. There was only 1 other table of guests in the dining room. That maybe should have been our hint. The food was mediocre. The scallops appetizer was very good. I would recommend that. Everything else was under seasoned or totally flavorless. The service was good. Even by 6pm there were only a few tables of guests on a Friday night.
