Old Town Scottsdale’s heart is beating to a Latin drum, now that The Mission has arrived and brightened the restaurant scene. Renowned Zinc Bistro Chef Matt Carter is now cooking up modern Latin cuisine blending influences from Spain, Mexico, Central America and South America. Home made Tortillas, Arepas, and Salsas are made fresh daily and all meats are prepared on a Plancha or a grill using pecan and mesquite wood that instills a rich flavor.

We loved our girlfriend get-together at The Mission last Saturday, 1/20. I wish I could remember our server's name, a tall man around 7:30pm serving our group of ladies. He was absolutely phenomenal. He provided candid recommendations, prompt service, and was fun and enjoyable. The food was outstanding, the cocktails even better (hint: try the primarita with a grand marnier topper - rec from waiter). The ambiance works for multiple occassions, whether romantic, friendly, business, etc. We will return if ever back in the area!

The Mission restaurant is in a historic building. I loved the ambience though it did take a few minutes to adjust to the dim lighting. The margaritas were great and we loved the tableside guacamole. There were many creative entree options including two good vegetarian ones. This restaurant is a bit pricey but extremely popular so be sure to make reservations in advance.

The Food was amazing but the seating arrangements for a table of two were really small and very close to the other couples next to you. We were trying to hear each but the couple on both sides of us were loud.

In Scottsdale on vacation and went to the mission based on many recommendations. The food was delicious but portions are tiny. The restaurant was so dimly lit it was hard to see you food let alone the company you are with!

The Mission in Old Town Scottsdale never disappoints. It's one of our favorite restaurants. Always busy so be sure to make a reservation well in advance.

The restaurant has a wonderfully vibrant atmosphere, lots of buzz. The lighting is dim which all adds to the chic feel. The staff are friendly and efficient.
Everything's great except the most important part, the food, nothing's wrong with it, it was just a let down. Example, a lot of theatre in making fresh guacamole at the table, only to find the "hot and spicy" version requested was somewhat tasteless.
Also be careful they take your name when they welcome you at the front desk, we were later accused of being a no show, simply because the guy made no note of our name when we advised him of our reservation.

Make sure you bring a flash light to read the menu. It’s to dark, can’t see the food you are eating or the people you are with. It’s noisy, dark and food is ok. Really disappointed, as I heard good things. The location is good.

We had a business friend dinner here and it was so loud where we sat that some people in our group of 5 could not hear each other. Also, what is the deal with the darkness inside the restaurant? It will still be dark and great ambience if the lights come up a notch or two. It seems dumb that waiters have to hand out little flashlights!! I also like to see the food I am eating. Food presentation is not easily seen in this restaurant! Given how important this is to the dining experience, it makes me wonder what are they hiding?!!
