Food was good. But not for the price. The servers were extremely attentive and very nice.

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.

The cost of food was way too high; to the point of gouging. It was very noisy in the restaurant.

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!

Ate a meal outside on the patio and then this meal for breakfast and both were very tasty, and our servers in both instances were extremely attentive and helpful.

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.

Mother's Day Breakfast, not brunch. Nice atmosphere and great service. Brunch style service. Alot of the food was cold and they must be on a budget because minimal selection. The condiments are given in those small paper cup containers that you have to keep asking for more on. Fruit looked a little old and meat and cheese displayed like someone's work lunch potluck. I would pay 15.oo maximum for this. Should have gone to some chain restaurant or upscale. Service was Excellent.

Although a little pricey, food was very tasty.We at three dinners there and tried something different each time. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The whole interior of the Hotel lobby, which is attached to the restaurant, has hard surfaces and is extremely noisy due largely to the crowds on the weekend we were there.

I was at a conference and booked thru open table due to the menu and gf food options. Upon being seated they told me I could only have the soup and salad bar yet meals were being brought out from the kitchen. My waiter did allow me to order the Cobb salad which consisted of a bowl of lettuce snd sprinkling of bacon and diced turkey and a few veggies. Then they charged me $5 more than the soup and salad bar. Won't go back.

We were looking for a Thanksgiving dinner option when we learned that friends were coming down to Southern California for a special event that we were attending too. It was a late search but remembered comments from other friends about the dinner they had several Thanksgivings ago at Mix that they said was very good. Fortunately there was space for us and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent!

Food was no good at all. Had the onion soup and it had a most off putting smell. I also had the grilled chicken Caesar salad and the chicken was dry, tendony and gray like it was boiled and painted with grill marks.
