                                            This restaurant has closed down. Open Table wasted my time by having it in its list, confirming my reservation & sending me a text message two days before the reservation to reconfirm it.

                                            Came here for weekday breakfast with a friend as it’s impossible to weekend brunch due to the lines. I was pretty disappointed ... we each got quiches which were soggy (I know it’s not fair to compare to Tartine quiche - gold standard!) and I couldn’t even finish eating it it was so unappetizing. Also ordered pastries as that’s what they make in house ... blueberry muffin was fluffy and truly the only delicious item we ordered ... cinnamon Bun felt stale and was loaded with raisins (hate raisins!) and really felt more like a bear claw or Danish than a cinnamon bun or roll. We took two bites and left it. Coffee was so so ... there is SO much good local coffee in SF it would have been nice to have something local offered, French press or pour over style instead of diner coffee that’s been sitting in the reheater. Server was sweet and attentive (hooray and points for that), but the overall restaurant is looking pretty tattered and dirty. Sadly, I’m done w Mission Beach - there are too many other good options in the Mission.

                                            We made a reservation on Open Table but then arrived and the host told us they couldn't access the reservations and we had to wait about 15 min for a table. The table was crammed between two others and the service was really slow. Food was a little overpriced for the quality and quantity.

                                            This was a good restaurant, but no longer. We should have turned around and run, not walked out, when we were greeted by a surly waiter that proceeded to seat us near the bathroom in an empty restaurant. Everything got worse from there. The food was just dead and grey. What a horrible experience.

                                            The french toast was amazing! My friends who ordered the benedict and avocado toast enjoyed their meals as well. Highly recommended.

                                            Food is too complicated and the three menu items we had really didn’t work. Too many ingredients that end up in a mishmash. Had to send cold french fries back.

                                            First off, I just love when someone meets you at the door points to a table and doesn't even as if you have a reservation or not. It was Christmas Eve and you would think they would be a little more friendly. We were a part of 4 and we basically had to pick our table. Waited for a very long time for the server to arrive. When he finally did, I asked about something on the menu and he started telling me that he is a server at another place near by and how there item I asked about was better. Gee, great up selling. When we finally ordered, then we waited and waited and waited for our dinner to arrive. Still the tall guy with a beard and beanie who we first met as we came in, never left behind the counter to check on tables. He just kept going in and out of the kitchen. And our poor server to his credit had all the table and no help. I could go on, but why, you get the point. For me, I will not gi back there again. Maybe they had an off night, but all the years I have worked in food establishments, you should always be prepared for the holiday diners!....

                                            Menu was eclectic with choices for nearly everyone. I ordered a beet and mango salad that was very good, even though some of the mango slices were a bit tough. Main course was a beef pot pie that came with another salad. I wish I had known that so I wouldn’t have ordered the first salad. I had ordered a chicken pot pie but was served the beef. Because it was Christmas Eve I just let it go. Staff was rushed and bare bones. It’s a great neighborhood eatery with fresh, tasty food. Not sure I would make a special trip to eat there though.

                                            Not sure what has happened, but Mission Beach Cafe use to be a fantastic restaurant. They use to have the best burger in town! Sadly, not anymore. The food was mediocre at best and they really need to invest some money into repairs and maintenance of their restaurant. The tables/chairs look worn out and the bathroom could use a coat of paint. Unfortunately, the whole experience was sad. I understand they have a really great brunch, but I wouldn’t coke back for dinner again.

                                            The restaurant was empty (only one other table the entire night), probably because it was the weekend after Thanksgiving. The truffle fries and lamb were delicious but the Brussels sprouts were not that great - sauce was meh. Loved the service! Would love to go back for brunch as I’ve heard great things!

                                            The food is excellent, as is the service. However, the two times I’ve tried to make a reservation here for dinner, Open Tabke gave me two choices (5:30 and 9:30] on a Saturday night even with three or four days’ notice. The place was empty last Saturday night and that should not be as the food is excellent.

                                            The food, service etc. was fine, no real complaints although it was nothing special. I was really disappointed that the menu on the website isn't the same as the menu they're serving at the moment - I had chosen to visit here for one specific (vegan) item on the menu that wasn't on the menu anymore (and I asked they couldn't do it) and there was actually only one single vegan option on the menu which was a healthy veg filled option, when I was really looking for a treat... like the non vegan options (or the vegan options on the old menu)...

                                            I have been going to Mission Beach for quite a while, mostly for lunch. It can be VERY busy at lunchtime and it is utterly crazy at the weekends for brunch. We went for dinner on a Tuesday night, the place was quiet and the food good. It is so, so difficult to find a quite place for dinner. Wine list was good, menu was good too. We shall return on Tuesday nights. Please don't come on a Tuesday night because you will spoil it for us!

                                            Wonderful brunch in the heart of the Mission. They have a half Benedict option where you can pick one type of Benedict and then get two additional sides like avo toast, potato salad, roasted potatoes, side salad, biscuits, etc etc. perfect for a hungry gal who can’t decide on just one dish! The location is also perfect to spend the morning/afternoon around the Mission and Dolores Park afterwards. Highly recommend! Also very friendly, kind, attentive staff

                                            We have been to MBC before, but not for quite a while, and when we got halfway through this meal, we were asking ourselves, "Why don't we come here more often?" Our food was excellent — we started with the delicious roasted Brussel sprouts. My partner had the king salmon, which I tried and was very tasty. I don't often order red meat, but I had the petit filet, and I have to say, it was one of the best I have ever eaten. Practically melted in my mouth, perfectly cooked, with a delicious mushroom sauce. I had a very nice wine, fairly priced as was the entirety of the meal. When our server came back and asked if I'd like another glass of wine, I asked if there was any chance I could get just half a glass, and she kindly indulged me. I love it when a restaurant will do that, as another full glass is often a bit more than I want (or need!) Our server was an absolutely delightful and personable young woman who made the meal even better, putting us in a good mood from the moment we walked in the door. We'll be back!

                                            Decent food and drinks but service was the worst I have seen in a long time, at any place whatsoever. Everything took forever and the waiter was either just lying to us on multiple occasions, or was really clumsy. Who knows...

The music was a little loud and the server turned it down at our request. It was a Tuesday and we didn't feel rushed. I wouldn't go during peak weekend brunch hours as there's often a wait.

                                            We enjoyed breakfast at Mission Beach Cafe. The food was incredible - we had the beach burger, the brioche French toast, and the eggs/bacon. We loved every bite. The service was fine, but could have been a bit more attentive. I think our server may have just been a little too busy, but it wasn’t a big deal, as we always had what we needed.
