Got right in at reservation time. Great spot, good food, mule was way to limey. The server took 15 minutes to greet us, and said he had important people to talk to which is why he was so delayed, which was not a great way to start introductions. Additionally, he was infrequent in checking in or even taking orders. The server also smelt primarily of cigarette’s which may be the important people he had to “talk” to leading to him being very delayed to his table. I honestly may never go back due to the server.
The food was very enjoyable. We had the salmon and guacamole dip. Our servers were polite, professional and efficient. I arrive early for my reservation and was seated immediately.
No spacing between seating so they placed us outside. Service was very poor. Mojito was undrinkable. Flies swarmed our table. Food was good, but with poor service and lack of ambience could recommend to anyone.
Other than the restaurant being a kittle i noisy on the inside my experience was fantastic.
Good food, kind of spendy, the sword fish was to die for! The only thing I would change is the lighting…way too dark.
The Mission is top notch! The ambiance, food, and service are impeccable.
Swordfish with rock shrimp is amazing!The Mission is on my top 3 in the country list of great culinary experiences.
Great food but a little to dark and noisy for my liking
Still good place to come. Food is good and service is good. A little warm inside.
Two things you can count on at the Mission: Great food and terrible service.
I highly recommend you takeout--order ahead and pick it up. It doesn't matter which location the service is terrible at both. The Kierland location does have a much better ambiance but the same terrible service. The Old Town location is so dark they must be hiding something?
The only saving grace is that the food is fantastic but make sure you bring a large dose of patience and understanding with you to deal with the ridiculously poor service
Wonderful dining experience… exceptional server very attentive. Very creative and wonderfully plated. Will definitely return.
Father’s Day weekend had a party of 8 and the guy did a great job we also had two kids under 1 years old and the restaurant did amazing with them definitely will be back!
Swordfish was poor, not worth $45. This dish was recommended by waiter who did a poor job overall. Long wait for service. Place is overpriced, noisy, cramped and overrated. Would not recommend.
AmZing as always
Duck Carnitas Empanadas were delish. Loved our server’s personality and the atmosphere was very cool. It’s very dark, though.
Would def recommend. 👍🏻
Food was great - service was excellent - Daughter brought girlfriends from college to Scottsdale for first time and we decided to treat them to an authentic place their first night in town. It was perfect.
Delicious food, phenomenal ambiance and amazing service. The Hibiscus Margarita was delicious! Will definitely be back!
The Prickly Pear Margarita is so good! Rib eye for two, Duck confit empanadas and churros are AMAZING. Fun and energy is on point.
Beautiful place in general, a little to dark in my opinion and tables are very close together. Food is quality and portion sizes seem to be typical. Service was good although we did have to wait to order but our server was very accommodating.
If you’re in the area, this food cannot be missed. This is upscale Mexican cuisine and almost every dish is something you haven’t seen before. The service is very good as well!
Great food and good prices
Try the pork shoulder in any form!
This time I give The Mission an excellent review. The manager, Darva", was true to his word and took very good care of us. The wait staff was very attentive and very concerned about my wife's GF situation. The food is creative Mexican cuisine and the prices are very reasonable. I will continue to go to The Mission and suggest it to others.
We truly enjoyed this restaurant we ended up sitting at the bar and Jay waited on us. He was extremely nice and very helpful with us making our dinner choices. I will definitely go back it is really a nice restaurant and it was a lot of fun
One of the best restaurants to get together with friends in Old Town Scottsdale! Can’t beat their menu, atmosphere and service!
The food was amazing! We had a larger group and everyone was pleased with what they got. The service was also great. We will all definitely be going back when we are in Scottsdale next.
Amazing place! Kind of odd when we walked in because it’s so dimly lit, however the food and the service was AMAZING! our server Ty was awesome and accommodating with all my food restrictions. Gluten free and vegan choices!
I would highly recommend this restaurant! The food was amazing!
The server was nice and so helpful!
He gave us great suggestions on what to order! This should be on your list to check out when you are in Scottsdale!
Great spot - fantastic food, ambient & energetic. Not kid friendly though. A must visit!
Place was recommended by a friend and I'm so glad she did. This place is amazing
The food was pretty good but dang those tacos were tiny. Margaritas were excellent and so was the service though.
Food and service were great
Great atmosphere! Our server, Kyle, was personable, attentive, and friendly. He made great recs. Would definitely return when in town.
Amazing service as always and the menu never disappoints!!
Loved the inside. The bar looks cool as well. It was a bit noisy, but the food and service were great!
The food and drinks are good but the area of the dining room (to the right of the entrance as you are walking in) was very noisy. A lot noisier than usual even for seating going back to normal to pre-pandemic levels.
This was our second trip to The Mission. It’s hands down one of our favorites when we come to the area. The ambiance and decor is gorgeous. The food and drinks are impeccable. I highly recommend the pork shoulder tacos and their quac is to die for. We started at the bar with Jay who was super nice and helpful. Then moved to our table with Rich as our server. He was also super nice. The food is great and the staff is fantastic.
We read the great reviews and were not disappointed! We had shrimp tacos and the butternut squash tacos. To die for! The guacamole and salsa were fantastic. It was so good we are going to break our vacation rule and go back a second time before we leave.
