The Mission - Kierland Commons
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. And save room for dessert including our pumpkin bread pudding or expresso churros.
Grilled Street Corn
skewered corn, butter, chile, aji rocoto, cilantro & cotija
Crispy Rock Shrimp
Tecate battered, rocoto crema, cotija & shaved cabbage
roasted poblano grits, beer onions, Oaxacan pasilla glaze & haricot vert
Always a solid meal
Excellent 1st dining experience at The Mission. Will definitely return.
Food is way too salty!!
Phenomenal as always. Better and cleaner ambience than old town location.
Post quarantine first meal out. Best food and service just like I remembered. Get out and live again!
Our first visit to a restaurant since the pandemic. They did a nice job spacing the tables, making it feel roomy and safe. Service was excellent. Food was delicious.
Good food and service on a quiet Monday. I would recommend for a date night to a good size group.
Cocktails were disappointing, food was good and service was great
One of our favorite restaurants. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is very upscale without feeling pretentious or uncomfortable. Wonderful restaurant.
We felt the margaritas were very overpriced. $14 for about 6 oz of a drink and a lot of ice (it was a tasty drink!)... the food was good but not hot when we received it (the pork tacos). As well as the guacamole. 1 avocado with ingredients is $14...?
Hip space with a focused menu of tasty options. Good cocktails, excellent service.
Incredibly creative and tasty meal. Appreciated recommendations from our knowledgeable and fun waitstaff! Try the apps especially Gordita, pork cheeks and duck!
duck empanadas outstanding and flavorful. all dishes were interesting
Excellent food and service
Always great food -one of our favorite restaurants in Scottsdale.
Food excellent. Service a bit disjointed and clunky... nice servers, do not seem very well trained.
Had a wonderful Birthday dinner. Food was exceptional and service as well.
Beautiful space. Meals generally executed very well.
We enjoyed the noisy fun vibe. The food was delicious. Grilled corn appetizer was a great mix of spicy and sweet(it was quite spicy). My husbands swordfish was also good and the rice with it was a wonderful blend of flavors! I enjoyed my tacos. The beef was surprisingly tender. We did not care for the fried banana dessert. I found the bananas bland and not sweet. Probably personal taste, but the waiter took them off the bill! Fantastic attentive service.
It was a great experience on Friday night. We arrived a few minutes early and went over to the bar and had a drink before our reservation/table was ready. When we sat down we had a service member helping us with our drink order and appetizers. The table side guacamole and chips was very flavorful and delicious. The main meals came out in a timely matter and were very tasty as well. Overall a good evening at the Mission with friends.
We love the Mission and visit every time we visit the area. First time at this location service, food & drinks are good. But I did find the background music too loud for easy table conversation for a larger group. I know I'm not the first to mention this so was surprised this has not been addressed by management. I wish they had queso they have great chips and table side quacamole. My favorite street corn !
I looked forward to eating here and was VERY disappointed. The noise level upstairs is beyond loud! Did not enjoy it at all. Food as always was fabulous. But there has to be more to the dining experience than just good food. Noise level matters.
consistently delivers delicious food and drinks! df
Slow inexperienced server.
Service is incredibly slow.
Drinks are grossly overpriced.
But the food is pretty good.
Wonderful food and service, we were on the upper patio great seats.
Meet friends from home but we were all from out town. The bar tender and waitress went out of their way to make us feel at home.
Food. Is so delicious. Brilliant chef who uses lots of flavor. Very nice atmosphere.
The server was never around. Food was sent back. We were stuck in a corner table despite multiple tables being open in the restaurant. The atmosphere was nice but the food and the service made it so we would never return.
Best margarita ever!!
It was not bad, just was not great. The portions were micro size. Literally the smallest tortilla I have ever seen for the tacos. The salmon was good but again just very small. Beautiful place but even with an entree and two sides we left hungry.
We sat outside on the upper level. Our waiter was excellent.
I can’t remember his name, but we were there on a Saturday night.
My husband had the swordfish and I had the hangar steak.
We had the pork belly starter. Everything was excellent!
You all really should consider happy hour! Waiter was not warm & friendly and the friends that were new to restaurant commented on that :( We left earlier b/c of these 2 things...
The food was great. The servers seemed to mean well. Maybe it was an off day. I don't know if they were short on staff in the kitchen, with the wait staff, or what. It took about an hour to get our food and when we finally got it, it was lukewarm. And, it wasn't just our table that was getting this slow service.
Excellent service and delicious food
Overall the service was adequate but very slow and there seemed to be a lot of socializing and chatting amongst the staff and not a lot of attentiveness to guests. Churros sold out which was disappointing.
