All good! Service was great, sat outside upstairs, beautiful night. Guacamole was delish, drinks refreshing, skirt steak tacos and mani tacos really good.
Would have loved if they offered a fish special.
Crystal is a great server!
Nice and very helpful with the menu. Terrific dishes. The pork shoulder tacos were great.
Food was overpriced. The flavor of the food was nothing special. Fancy Mexican but lacking the love you get from a real Mexican restaurant. I wouldn’t spend my money on this place again
Don’t make an 8:45 reservation time when it closes at 9
Great menu and was excited to try this place for the first time. Service was fantastic! Great atmosphere! Food was not what we expected. Everything tasted like Lime…everything! The guacamole dip had so many wonderful ingredients only to take back stage to Lime. We ordered the salmon and once again WAY too much lime. The pineapple sauce was the only good taste with the salmon. The Moscow mule…Lime! The pineapple ginger Mojito…Lime! Despite the excessive Lime flavors, our waiter was GREAT!
Everything was excellent! The cake for dessert was delicious too.
Food is overpriced and waiter asked us to leave once dinner was over as we weren’t ordering more cocktails. Won’t be back
Great time celebrating our middle daughters birthday!
Beautiful restaurant with a charming bar. Chips and salsa were excellent, smoky salsa, not watery, full of flavor. The pork belly tacos were shared and had great flavor. Two Cadillac margaritas were perfect, not overly sweet, made from scratch. We’ll be back
My wife and I went to The Mission old town Scottsdale and loved it so much, we had to try this one. The experience was awesome again! We loved everyone there. The staff are so kind and efficient. God bless you all and thanks again!!
Great location and excellent food and service
Our meal was wonderful and our server was amazing!
Wonderful dining experience! Our server was busy but very attentive and gave me a free dessert for my birthday! Food was sooo delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. Thank you!
We were a bit disappointed in being sat in the upstairs back of the restaurant with a view of the parking lot. Had we known that we would not have dined there. It was our last night in Arizona with our daughter so we were looking forward to the ambiance as well as the food. We asked the person seating us if there were any tables downstairs and she said no the restaurant was full. Well we made a reservation too so why were we put in the back corner. Other than that the food was delicious and our server was amazing.
I didn’t like the chicken and it came out cold. Tacos are the tiniest I’ve ever seen and very pricey. Beautiful interior and margaritas were great but portions are small and food is just ok.
Dylan was very customer service oriented. A great waiter
Food was great.
Excellent choice for outstanding Latin cuisine kicked up a notch to make for a night to remember. Excellent all around from the attentive service, excellent facilities, amazing tasteful food and deserts. Highly recommend for a night out to celebrate.
This was the loudest restaurant we have eaten in and could still not hear each other despite leaning in across the table to try and talk to each other. Also, the food was the tiniest portions ever. The entrees were 3 $20 taco plates and the street tacos were shorter than a pinky finger in diameter and the $16 table side guacamole might have well as been served in a thimble. We joked the whole time we were eating food for dolls because it was small and outrageously priced.
The service was great! Food delicious! The waiter was attentive and well versed in the menu and wine pairings.
Excellent guacamole and Mahi-mahi fish tacos!
Great ambience. Great service! I love the music piped in
We had lunch reservations at noon and it wasn't crowded when we arrived. The hostess was very pleasant and we were seated in a corner - just what we wanted.
Our food was delicious, and we were not rushed at all.
Very pleasant and knowledgeable server.
I believe it was overpriced. The service was top notch; food was ok and I could have gotten steet tacos anywhere for half the price. Not sure if I will be back or not.
As always, The Mission doesn’t disappoint. Everything we tasted was wonderful. From the guacamole made table-side (so glad it’s back) to the appetizers, entrees, tequila flights and the pumpkin bread pudding, every mouthful was a delight. This is our can’t miss, go-to restaurant whenever we are in Scottsdale.
30th Wedding Anniversary
The salsa and chips were phenomenal!! Guacamole made table side is always better and you can control your heat etc. Cocktails are unique and delicious. The watermelon margarita was excellent. The food was good with the corn gorditas being a highlight.
Great experience! Food was really good. We loved it.
Last night dinner at the mission was the best service I have EVER experienced. I was at Ocean 44 the week prior and the service at the Mission made Ocean 44 seem average at best...
Attentive staff, including waiter, server assistant and assistant. Seemed like anytime we needed something it just appeared. Such a joy. And the food was delicious and served hot! Our waiter was Chris. we sat on the outside patio upstair. Perfect night!
Matthew, our server was outstanding! He was helpful without being pushy, knowledgeable with all the menu offerings and overall made our anniversary celebration a delight!
We could not sit in the east back booth because the sun was in our eyes so were moved to a two-top in the pathway of the middle - the table was too small for all that we ordered.
The bar patrons were very noisy but were having a good time - if we were in the booth the noise would not have been as distracting and easier to have a dinner conversation.
The food was excellent and the best margarita in town.
great vibe, the chef really knows what he/she is doing
Absolutely fantastic food and the service was some of the best I’ve ever had. The recommendations for dinner, wine and dessert were flawless. The food was so layered in flavors and the service was perfection. So glad we went.
Birthday for my daughter, waitress was terrible, food took an hour and 10 minutes for entrees. Manager took care of meal but overall won’t go back which is sad because we use to love this place. Had to take meal home to finish because of time.
Went for dessert and they were out of two of the three selections given!
Waiter felt bad and gave us two of the bread pudding choices! Excellent....
Glad they were out of the others!
Waiter was slow but it was late....
Great food as I have been there before....
The skinny margaritas and the Salmon where amazing!
Atmosphere is great, service has always been fantastic but their food is phenomenal!!
Best street corn and cheesy rice you’ll ever find. We come here very often!
Food, specialty drinks and waiter were all excellent.
