I arrived about 15 mins. before my 11:30 reservation. I was told that the restaurant is not open for lunch (apparently breakfast buffet and dinner only). Upon telling them I had a reservation, the restaurant check-in person pointed to some tables in the lounge area, and said I could sit there, and be served there. They insisted that it was not their website that i made the reservation on, but OpenTable instead. I told them that there was a menu on it. The table was OK, and we were served properly, etc. But something was wrong with this. I was unhappy overall with the experience

Service, food excellent - very flavorful. Ambiance - extremely noisy - could not carry on a conversation with a companion because of the noise level during the peak lunch crowd. I definitely would have rated the restaurant 5 stars if it wasn't for the noise.

This restaurant is next to the lobby of the hotel, which makes it a bit noisy. The ambiance is sober and practical. I had the impossible burger and was well made and accompanied of house made potato chips. Overall ok for a hotel’s restaurant.

Good food but I felt it was a bit expensive for my meal. I did not order any drinks just to save some money.

We made reservations for Saturday and Sunday. We were celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary and stayed at the Hilton. We want to thank Lorena Bravo for her superb service and attentions she provided for our special occasion. I’m a Hilton Honors who has visited many of their restaurants, but we have never felt so wonderful and grateful at all levels. Please let Lorena know we will always remember how she helped me with my knee issues and how her service exuded with excellence! Thank you and we need more Lorena’s in restaurants.

I think MIX Restaurant and Lounge is a great spot for eating if you're at a conference, and your food options are pop-up stands and food trucks. While I thought everything was good, I likely would not eat at MIX Restaurant and Lounge if I was in the area as there are, in my own opinion, better options close by.

MIX was able to deliver an awesome dining experience despite the immediate demand and large crowds associated with the PMA conference. Everyone was so helpful and the food was delicious. We felt well taken care of and not rushed. JOB WELL DONE! I will eat there again.

Breakfast buffet is wonderful. Plenty of choices to choose from and can get an order of Belgian waffle or french toast upon request. Dinner however, was suprisingly just OK. Food was good. Portions small and high priced. Dont mind paying higher prices for very good food or prime, but this did not fit that description. I thought that maybe I was expecting to much, but competition nearby, also a hotel restaurant, had what to us seemed to be better quality of food, and choices for dinner, at the same price point. Overall, would recommend breakfast. Dinner ok if you dont want to venture out.

This is a very good place to eat if you're at a convention and have a larger group for dinner. We were seated at a good table, away from the main part of the restaurant which made it easy to hear everyone (although it was a bit close to the kitchen)! We all enjoyed our meals and our server was excellent and helpful, with a nice sense of humor.

Hosted a birthday dinner here. The food has definitely gone downhill over the years. Had the ceviche which was pretty good - lots of acid and a pretty good serving size. The veal cannelloni was odd - per its description, it had “veal stew” in the noodles. As such, there was gravy in the cannelloni. This mixed with the tomato based sauce and cheese made for a weird combination. Not my favorite. My husband had the salmon which was tasteless and dry. No small wonder that the restaurant was empty.

The restaurant was quite empty, which I thought was odd at 7pm on a Tuesday night, since my conference had over 2500 attendees. The meal, however, was delicious and I was thrilled not to have to walk another mile and back to dinner.

We selected the MIX based on our excellent experience at the Hilton in Long Beach. We were not disappointed, as the service was outstanding. The menu could have more variety, but our meals were good. Again, our services was refreshingly outstanding. Thank you.

The food and service were very disappointing - limited menu choice and the food was luke warm when it arrived despite there being no other customers in the restaurant at the time. When we passed by the restaurant on 2 subsequent evenings it was also near empty so clearly not the dining choice for the vast numbers of people staying at the Hilton Anaheim.

If you're staying at Hilton, it's convenient but service is slow (even tho' you'd think they'd be used to convention traffic!). Just opt coupons if you have status for continental Bkft; couldn't get a non-fat latte & waitress didn't ask if a latte w/ 2% milk was ok, she just delivered food w/o any acknowledgement that we were missing the latte! Very BIZARRE!

Wait time with reservation was zero time even though there was a line waiting to get in. Service was great. Drinks person was immediately at our table when we arrived at the table. Caesar salad with salmon was excellent. Waiter provided mini rolls with salad when asked. Waiter allowed separate checks.

The waiter forgot the soup, and when we reminded someone, they still didn't send it. The food was bland and not very good quality. The exception was the bass was well prepared. Unfortunately, the farro it was served upon was bland.

The ribeye steak was thin and overcooked. Ordered medium rare, was served well done. The steak was so thin I believe the steak could not be cooked to a temperature. The vegetables were tasty and not overcooked. The chicken piccata was okay. The appetizers and pizza we had in the lounge the next night were much better.

We stayed at the Hilton/Anaheim for four nights and spent two evenings at the mix. The service was excellent with very friendly and on the spot employees. The food was also excellent and the atmosphere was great. When in town we will always try to spend an evening here.

Dinner meeting with clients after convention center event. Atmosphere was quiet, some kids, very low key. The food was good. Salmon dish was delicious. The service was very good, very attentive and the food came out quickly. We debated on going to a restaurant in Downtown Disney, this was the better choice because it was quiet and we could have good business conversation.
