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.

Teresa was the best waitress we have ever had. You let her know that the Robertson’s from Northern California really appreciate what she does.

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.

I reserved a table for 2 for Breakfast with the Beatles event and we were seated at the bar with a man who did not make reservations

The bartender was nice. The brunch was slim for the price, although the scrambled eggs were very good

Mix Restaurant and Lounge immediately seated us when I presented them with a printout of my "Open Table" reservation even though they were quite busy. The server was helpful in making choices and put the order into the kitchen as soon as we completed the order (we had a short amount of time for lunch). The server also allowed us to split the check and pay separately. Food preparation was excellent and quite tasty - a cut above normal for a lunch. Cost was a bit above normal but well worth it in the presentation and taste of the food. I definitely would recommend "Mix Restaurant and Lounge" and plan to return.

Hostess was Patient, kind but worked super fast and efficient to get everyone seated quickly. We had a little wait before someone finally came for our food order but it was delicious once we got our food. Sometimes hard to understand our waiters accent but his service was impeccable! Fast and friendly. We would definitely go back.

Prompt service. I had to push back my reservation time three times due to schedule changes at the conference I was attending, the restaurant was very accommodating, and seated us within minutes of arrival. The use of the Open Table app afforded us the opportunity to bypass a huge line of fellow conference attendees. We were enjoying our dinner shortly thereafter.

It is a nice resturant and we were attended to quickly, but the menu just wasnt appealing. Not many options and the descriptions of the plates just fell short of what to expect for your dinner. Also, if you're staying at the hotel it is the exact same menu as room service for the exact same price. Overall, the atmosphere is lovely but not enough substance for the food. We did leave shortly after seeing the menu and asking a few questions about the dishes. Did not want to take up space from others who truely wanted to eat there amd enjoy the meal. Glad that not one of the staff memebers took offense to us leaving and completely understood.

We had a great table/reservation for 12 people. Sat us right away and our server was attentive. I would say a bit pricey for pretty basic menu, but it is in a hotel, so fair game I suppose. For example, the 4 shrimp for a $15 shrimp cocktail was pretty lame. Those people walked out starved. The salmon salad was amazing though. Thanks for the great service.
