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.

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.

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.

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.

Like many of the Downtown restaurants they all want to get to the $100 price point for dinner whether it deserves it or not. When an appetizer, a side order of asparagus, one entrée and two glasses of wine comes to a hundred bucks. That's ridiculous! They also promote validated parking for the IDS. The waitress said when you come back for Desert we can take care of it. The play went until 10:30 the restaurant closed at 10 so much for that. Next time I will fix a wonderful dinner at home for my spouse and save 50 bucks.

Unfortunately the food at Mission American Kitchen was way below standard. I ordered Guinness braised short ribs and they were so dry I could not eat it. I make much better short ribs. I don't know how my friends' meals tasted, but no one commented that their food was good or bad. Disappointing meal but the ambiance and the service was great.

I've been here twice in the past four months - both times I've been here the food has been average, I tried two different items and my guests did also. Each time we both agreed that the food is fine, but that's it. Better places downtown to have a business lunch.

Beet salad was great, tuna also very good bur rice cake with it was quite chewy. Wife had crab cakes which she said were great. Service very friendly, but slow pre U2 concert. They warned us when we arrived, so was not a surprise. Ambiance nice but nothing special or particularly unique. Good for business lunch or dinner.

First time visitor to Minneapolis on business. I had dinner in three different restaurants. Mission would've been the weakest of the three.
Really liked the Korean barbecue rib appetizer and the deviled eggs. Had the Halibut on the menu, it was surprisingly good. I say surprisingly because I noticed the head chef hanging around the hostess station, and sitting at the bar the entire time we were there. I thought it really showed horribly. Had a chocolate cake for dessert that was awful. They apologized and took it off the bill.
With so many fine dining choices in Minneapolis, this restaurant has to try a lot harder to win their share of business. They were not very busy, compared to the other two restaurants I had been to during my stay.

Service and hostess were weak. Hostess left us at bar when we had gotten there early, and we had let her know that we wanted to have dinner, and she stated service didn't start until 5PM. We had to get her for a table after 5. Odd. Never once did she or waiter ask how any thing was. Place was quiet.
Food was decent, however.
