The food was not cooked as requested and the limited choices made it difficult to have a good selection

The apptmt system: great. The waiters: great. The Food quite poor and unexpected for this location. A Chef needs to supervise the quality of the food at the Mission Inn restaurant to be close to the Duane's restaurant quality or at the least be tastier.

The app says that there is burgers and a turkey club sandwich on the dinner menu. It is part of the lunch menu and needs to be corrected. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of that and it limited our dining choices for dinner. We decided on the buffet. The food was delicious though!

We made reservations for our valentine day date , the atmosphere was great and the architecture was amazing, the food was delicious and our waiter was awesome, with his recommendations and brief history of the mission he made our date even better. We’ll come back as we hear the Sunday brunch is also awesome.

My husband and I visited the Mission Inn restaurant for an after Valentine's breakfast. We loved sitting outside in the courtyard and our server Beth was the best. It made for an enjoyable start to our date day!

The quality of the food served has gone down from our visit last year. It seems there were fewer offerings on the buffet table. The desserts which were outstanding and so beautifully prepared, at our last visit, were so changed. These desserts could have been purchase at WalMart. I expected beautiful selections, and was so disappointed. Ordinary dry cupcakes with heart sprinkles do not qualify for fine dining.

I came here for my anniversary with my husband. We went to the Ritz Carlton for our last anniversary, and payed the same amount as here, and here we received half the food, and half the service. At the Ritz Carlton they made our evening so special the server was amazing and kind and was promptly and sat us away from others so we could have some privacy as this was a special night. We got a large amount of food on each of our plates including mashed potatoes, filet minon, lots of asparagus, broccoli, and a side salad. At the end of our dinner they gave us a very small desert and wrote “happy anniversary” on it. With 2 alcoholic beverages included, we payed 120$ without tip, and it was an amazing experience with a view. Here at the mission inn, we got a very small amount of food, including a filet minon, 3 pieces of asparagus, and two small raw carrots. The woman who walked us to our table told us “happy anniversary” once and that’s the last we heard of it, they sat us in the middle of three large tables with 4+ people at each table so we were squished and had no privacy, our server was kind and prompt, but at the end of the night when we finished eating and we’re finishing our drinks, our server came over 3 times in a 10 minute period persistently asking if we wanted more water even though we both had water left in our glasses. It felt as though she was suggesting we were drunk and needed water, and she was becoming very pushy, so we quickly finished our drinks and left. With 2 alcoholic beverages included, we payed 140$ without tip!!

Our service was less than attentive. Even though we repeatedly told our waiter we would let him know when we were ready to order, he kept stopping to ask. Also, I had to ask specifically three times just to get more hot water for my tea. And even though I was the only guest there, valet service took more than 5 minutes to bring my car around.

I was there with a small child and was surprised to learn that there was no small size for French fries. The only size they offer is a big plate of fries. I don’t want my kid to think that a big plate of fries is a good lunch, or any kind of lunch. Ugh!
Also, for a more upscale place, I am surprised they don’t have more vegan items on the menu. If you want a vegan entree, it’s going to be a salad and not much else. Their veggie burger is vegetarian, but not vegan. I go to an event every year at the Riverside Convention Center, and they blow everyone away each year with their vegan option. Maybe have a word with them? Other than that, very nice ambiance, and friendly wait staff.

My husband used to stay at Mission Inn in the 1950's. This was my 1st time there and I was so impressed! It is a BEAUTIFUL hotel filled with one beautiful detail after another. Mission Inn Restaurant is beautiful, relaxing and we had a great time for lunch. Our server, Jen, was terrific! My husband had the salmon with rice and seasonal vegetables. He loved it. I had the battered White fish and it was outstanding. For dessert we shared the brioche Apricot bread pudding. It is the best bread pudding we've ever had! We can't wait to return!

I thought that the Lunch buffet was very poor,especially for the price. Was expecting a much better selection after reading the web-site. Would not drive from Palm Springs again.

The lunch buffet was excellent with many choices, I am currently on the keto diet and found that there was plenty for me to choose from and my guest who is not on the keto diet; also had many choices. My only disappointment was they did not bring her a birthday dessert.

Although the prices were a bit on the higher side, the steak, (ribeye) and the shrimp pasta my wife ordered were excellent portions. We definitely will be returning in the future!

Love this place. It’s a perfect date night. Lots of beautiful architecture to see. Can walk around before or after dinner.
Food is always delicious. I had the white fish my date had the Filet, both were amazing! Had a great glass of Red “Cooper”

I made a reservation at the Mission Inn Restaurant for my daughter's birthday. My 18 y/o grand daughter who is a student at UC Riverside joined us. We were not greeted at the table for many, many minutes after we were seated not even to receive water. The waiter was horrible. He was not friendly, our water glasses took too long to be refilled. Just a poor, poor dining experience overall, and I'm pretty good at letting things go because I know sometimes servers are busy. Honestly, it was like no one could have cared less that we were there. I will not again dine at the Mission Inn Restaurant when there are so many other restaurants from which to choose. My daughter and grand daughter both also very disappointed. Pretty setting, but that's about it.

Mission Inn Restaurant is an excellent choice for date night. I recommend sitting outdoors as it is quite loud inside the restaurant. Also, the heat lamps are a bit warm so next time I’ll dress in layers as I was quite toasty with the adjacent heaters on.
