Southwest
North Scottsdale’s heart beats to a Latin drum at The Mission at Kierland Commons where renowned Chef Matt Carter (Zinc Bistro and Fat Ox) brings a modern twist to Latin cuisine blending influences from Spain, Mexico, Central America, and South America.

Sip a signature margarita with unique flavors such as cucumber jalepeno or aguacate (yes, we said avocado) as you watch your Tableside Guacamole made to your taste from more than a dozen fresh ingredients.

Home made tortillas, sauces, and salsas are made fresh daily to accompany an assortment of meats and seafood prepared on a Plancha or a grill using pecan and mesquite wood that instills a rich flavor. Plus save room for dessert including our pumpkin bread pudding or espresso churros.

    Food was great as usual BUT the sauce was scalding hot on the Pumpkin Bread Pudding to the point where I have sores in my mouth today. It was excellent but you might want to turn down the heat a bit!

    Food and our particular server were fine, but several team members, including someone that appeared to be a manager, stood within feet of our table for most of the meal and had a series of loud conversations. Was strange and distracting from our business meal

    The ambiance was good . This restaurant was highly recommended by a few of our friends but we were very disappointed. The food was not good at all, it was just ok. The service was horrible. We had to ask for water 4 times and was never asked if we wanted refills on our drinks. Very overprice for what it is.

    Cadillac Margarita very good. Pork tacos with Pineapple Habanero very spicy. Guacamole excellent. Fake service dog who doesn’t know how to walk on a leash or sit on the floor inside at a restaurant unacceptable! People are so entitled. There was an outside patio they could have sat on instead of in the restaurant. Management should have handled this from the beginning! Not ok with us or the ladies that sat next to them as the dog was on their side or on the owners lap. Face often on the table. We leave our dog at home where he is more comfortable. Probably will choose differently next time.

    One of my favorite restaurants. Our server was very attentive. Food was overall great. Always pleased with the tacos. Was a little disappointed with the churros dessert. Milkshake seems really melted and churros were overdone.

    We made reservations a few weeks ahead of time as we were celebrating our Anniversary. Happy to say that our table was ready on time. Our waiter was excellent and all the staff that we had contact with were wonderful. The food was excellent and I highly recommend The Mission. If I could change one thing, and only one thing I would change - the noise level was too loud for our liking.

    Music ‘energetic’? No, it was too loud. I asked if the volume could be turned down a bit … and was told “the owner likes it loud.” Ok, as good as the food was, an easy decision not to go back. Pretty ridiculous.

    Really good place! Food was excellent and innovative. Atmosphere was very open and inviting. The bar is the show are and provided a great selection of tequilas and other beverages. House margarita is made with egg whites-which was filling after only one-but added a nice depth to the drink. The only negative things I could say is the menu could be limiting for some but definitely worth a try!

    Big disappointment. 38mins after being seated we still didn't have any drinks on the table. They did bring the guacamole we ordered at 35 mins but NO chips, just guacamole. Our waiter did warn us that they were short staffed and it would be "a little bit of a wait", but that was ridiculous. We value our time, and they clearly do not. We walked out and had an amazing meal at Zinc Bistro down the street. Thank you Zinc Bistro!
