Food was very good. But service is terrible and noise level is louder than most clubs — just dumb.
Disappointed as I had asked for 2 high chairs in my reservation and wasn’t told till after I was seated, cleaned table etc that only one chair was available.
Enjoy dinner. Get the Guacamole made table-side. It was excellent. Wait staff was very friendly. Food was good.
Excellent food and great service.
Cool atmosphere and good drinks. Servers were attentive but it felt a little rushed.
great fun place! modern takes on some classics plus some new delicious innovations!
The menu, presentation of food and flavor need some work. I ordered the pork for two, it was so hard and dried out but smothered in juices meant the kitchen was aware the meat was dry. We didn’t complain cause the waiter seemed oblivious to everything we said. Must say the bar drinks and bartenders Dede were the best part. The noise level was ridiculous, so loud you can’t carry a conversation. The place some serious acoustical noise reduction. Overall I would neither recommend the Mission nor would I go back again. There are plenty of smaller places that do a better job at half the price.
We enjoyed our time at The Mission. Our meals were good but a bit overpriced for the quantity and quality. Excellent service was provided by our waiter. Drinks from the bar were very good, but again a bit pricey for their size.
Just the atmosphere blows me away. Service great,food great.....grateful!
Food was awesome! Cooked perfectly. Service was great. Server was friendly and knowledgeable.
Really enjoyable experience. Food was outstanding and our server Matthew even better. We will definitely return. Highly recommend.
After taking our food order it was difficult to get the servers attention, even though he spent his time talking to the host. We were right next to the hostess stand and still it took 15min to get our check. The server did take my drink off after realizing I didn’t care for it.
Fabulous food and a delicious cocktails. A perfect neighborhood gem. So happy I live so close. Amazing and beautiful inside and a great crowd of people. Wonderful place.
Granted it was not very busy early on a Monday afternoon but the staff was very attentive, the surroundings were exceptionally clean and the food was great. I would definitely return to this restaurant hopefully when it was cooler and we could sit outside. This was the 3rd time we've been to this restaurant and it is always excellent.
The Mission is a little less than an average dining experience. The noise level is too loud for normal conversation.
The Mission is a must go to place. The food was absolutely amazing and the staff was fantastic. A shout out to Jordan at the bar who made us feel like VIPs. Highly recommend
The mission is one of our favorite places to eat in Phoenix. The food is amazing, the service is always outstanding and the venue is in a great location in Kierland. Definitely one of our top 5 restaurants. We love coming here.
attentive servers, reasonably priced menu items and very tastey!
We had a fantastic dinner here. Everything was very good and we loved their twist on traditional Latin cuisine. Very flavorful! Our server Matthew was amazing! Great service and he knew the menu well.
David was an amazing server absolutely loved him. The food was amazing especially the duck empanadas. The noise level was much higher than I like when fine dining.
Food was fantastic. Service very good
Lower music volume will be really an enjoyable experience at Mission
Food was really good, besides the adobo potatoes. The atmosphere was cute and service was good. We did feel like our server was giving us dirty looks at times though, which was disappointing.
Main course was underwhelming, flavorless. It was the pork shoulder tacos for 2, no flavor, bland, probably should have been seasoned and smoked. Sides of the corn and rice were decent as were the chips and guacamole. Excellent drinks and the service was great.
Did not disappoint. Cocktails, appetizers were excellent. My son especially loved the tquila flights. Pork chorizo entree was superb. Salmon entree seemed to be missing some of its elements (like where was the cauliflower?) but overall it was enjoyable. Will be back!
Food and service were outstanding. Bartender even came to check if my mojito was how I liked them. Great experience and will definitely go back.
The restaurant is beautiful...especially the bar area. It is very noisy with all the hard surfaces and high ceilings. There was a family with loud unruly children which contributed to the noise level. The service was excellent. The food was good, although the Maui Maui Tacos were miniscule (enough for a petite woman, but a man would not be satisfied). My friend had the Chorizo Porchetta which he said was very fatty.
We all agreed we would return in hopes that the fatty dish is not always fatty and there will not be a family with unruly children.
Xavier was our server and he was terrific.
Delicious food. Amazing cocktails. Great atmosphere.
Excellent good and we highly recommend. Wonderful service and outstanding food!
First visit. Would definitely go again. Great bartender
Our Waiter was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious.
Arrived 5 minutes before my reservation. Was unapologetically told we will have to wait until “ closer to your time”. Food was only fair and I left hungry, as the portions were small. Only good thing was the service, which was excellent.
This was our second time at The Missions. We were not impressed the first time, but wanted to give it another try. We came away deciding that we would not return.
The menu is limited.
Our first time there we waited while another party that came in after we did got their waitress to take their order before us. We brought it to the attention of the manager who gave us a free appetizer.
On this second time we got there at 5 pm for our reservation, and was told that the wait staff was in a meeting and we had to wait to be seated. The wait was between 5 - 10 minutes.
The table for two was quite tiny.
The wait staff was great and quite helpful. However there are not a lot of choices on the menu. None of the traditional dishes for a Mexican restaurant.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Service was lack-luster. I've been to the Old Town Location several times over the years and always had enjoyable experiences. Atmosphere, location and food at Kierland was good, but constantly having to ask for refills, utensils, lots of waiting for service are not what I expect in any restaurant experience- certainly not at this price point.
To be fair, the server at the next table was very attentive and on point.
Poor service and had to wait nearly 2 hours to be served our dinner.
Great meal and drinks ! Our server Matthew took great care of us !
Just okay - went here because it was recommended by a friend. Worth a try, but with so many other restaurants in the Scottsdale area, we will probably never visit again. Overpriced. The menu is creative and I love the mixture of flavors, but 3 very small tacos the size of my palm for $20… I don’t mind paying the price as long as the food is worth it. In this case, it was not.
Best bar staff
Was very noisy. Very surprised with quality and spiciness of the food that they do not have draft beer. Lots of tequilas but no draft, so that was a bummer. Good food.
