Latin American

Old Town Scottsdale’s heart beats to a Latin drum at The Mission 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, 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.

We ordered the Mexican street corn to share, our waiter said we can take it off the Cobb for your convenience. We got it and it was fresh out of a can.

I have eaten at your outdoor dining twice and had a very pleasant time, but the indoor dining was excessively loud, making it very difficult to hear my dining companion. Please turn the music down and consider some noise dampening for the dining room.

Music was blaring that we had to shout at each other. Asked to sit out on the front patio with misters and was told only inside seating or the back patio which would’ve been in the heat, no misters. There were multiple tables open the entire time we were there on the front patio. Disappointing…

We had to ask no less than 5 times for water. Our server went MIA for a good 30+ minutes after our apps came & we finally got service again when we walked up to the host to ask for service. Even then our server didn't notice that we never received our entrees. So we had to ask again. Somehow our entree order was lost. They did comp us which was nice. I'd come back but felt neglected.

When three tiny steak tacos with no sides like rice and beans cost $20 I have to draw the line and call that beyond overpriced. So, back to all the good this place offers! It is located in a really quaint part of old Scottsdale. Every person I had the opportunity to speak with was very very nice and professional. The food is excellent with unique flavors. I am glad I ate hear once and recommend it to anyone that wants a good experience at a very high price.

I booked reservations back in January. When we arrived we were told it would just be a few minutes. After 15 minutes passed we asked for an update, the hostess said they were waiting for silverware to seat us. Another 15 minutes goes by and another hostess tells us we can either sit outside or wait an hour for a table. We were frustrated that the first hostess lied to us and that we’d had reservations for 5 months and after waiting 30 minutes they told us it would be another hour. Our server was great but she did forget to bring chips and salsa for the table.

Everything we ate was so incredibly well balanced and delicious. Truly every aspect of the evening was perfect, but the service we received from Ryan took our experience dining at The Mission to the next level. His knowledge of the food and the restaurant as a whole helped guide us through menu to pick the perfect dishes. He was also an absolute blast, we wish he could have sat with us at the table!! We will always request him as our server!!

We moved to the back patio for dinner. The salmon is to die for and the Brussel sprout tacos were so good! Wouldn’t have thought of that combo before.
