We had a fabulous time! The lamb tacos were delicious!!
The Mission always delivers a delicious and consistent meal!
For “high-end” Mexican cuisine, this is the best you will find in the greater-Phoenix area.
Made a reservation for an inside table and was told none were available upon arrival. We were seated in the back patio with an enormous box fan and flies everywhere...not to mention it was so hot. Asked to be at eleast seated at the bar inside. We did and had very little service and lengthy delays..likely after we decided not to eat and waste our money on the overpriced food. Had to have a hosted find someone to cash us out. Horrible experience. Would not go back and would not recommend.
Three of the four meals were good as usual. The pork shoulder, which is their signature dish, was very dry and cool in temperature. Although there are plenty of chandeliers, the lighting made it impossible to read a menu and we actually could not make out the variety of contents on the plate. No reason for it to be so dark!
Unbelievable food and good service. Was a little dark and loud, but other than that a perfect meal! Place was packed even on a Tuesday which is always a good sign
Incredible meal, easily on our top ten all time list. We will return to try all of their menu.
Very loud, very dark, people using led on phones to see menu which could cause visual discomfort to nearby patrons. Music selection weird at best, but I heard they (mgmt) dont particularly care about criticism of their musical preferences.
Extremely dark. Two drinks, two appetizers, one entree $140.00. I just returned from Vienna, Prague, and Geneva 2 days ago and perhaps that colors my impression, but Geneva Switzerland is pricey, but not outrageously so. And Geneva makes the very best of Scottsdale look pale by comparison—and this is not Scottsdale’s best (SF and NYC on the other hand...). So call it culture shock, but the afterglow of Europe was much brighter than the nearly pitch black interior :-/
The food is amazing. Pork shoulder tacos are delicious. Don't miss the table side guacamole it is the best around.
Had a great time at this restaurant! Waiter was wonderful! He even brought us out a dessert with a sparkler in since it was a special occasion. The Skirt Steak Tacos are amazing!!!
Great, quality food. Nice menu. Super-friendly service.
Outstanding menu with local flair and a touch of fusion. The Chef pays attention to flavor and presentation. Table side guacamole was excellent, good wine list and margarita selection.
Great food and great service! Love the inside and decor.
I was visiting Scottsdale from Boston and looking for a restaurant close to my hotel. The Mission came highly recommended and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing and the service was impeccable! The salsa was amazing and my entree of swordfish was so delicious and came highly recommended by my waiter. I even had dessert and the pumpkin bread pudding was amazing. I can’t wait to come back to Scottsdale and go back.
Little surprised that the steak tacos were very chewy.
The food was good and the service great. However, the elevated prices did not result in food that was remarkably better than the many options for Latin food at half the size of the check.
Amazing dinner. The street corn and beans are a must have . The rib eye was worth the $
Only down side was the tables were too close together and really dark restaurant. Need to turn the lights on to enjoy the meal more
Decent, but didn’t live up to what I had heard. Waitress must have been tired or just too busy as the order was wrong. Vinaigrette on the kale salad was incredibly acidic, tasted almost like straight vinegar. Drinks were good. Good ambiance and location.
The food was delicious and the ambiance lovely in every way.
We LOVE this restaurant...We come here for special occasion dinners...and just if we are in the mood.. .reservations recommended.
Took my spouse for our anniversary. Not our first time here so expected the same quality as before. Unfortunately the kitchen had an off night because that was the most money we've ever spent to both end up sick.
The table next to us was filled with drunken sales people all trying to out-scream each other, essentially in one gigantic measuring contest. While this isn't the Mission's fault, their server trying to flirt with them, bending quite intentionally over their table and hanging her rear end over our food plates at least 20 times was infuriating.
All in all, it was a lot of money for having to constantly guard the sanctity of our food from being sat on and ultimately getting ill. Highly dissatisfied.
Service is impeccable. Great cocktails. Plenty of meat and non meat options. The food was delectable and so well presented.
Scrumptious food and delicious hand-crafted drinks. Be sure to have the guacamole and go for a tequila flight. Attentive service with a smile. Just a heads up that seating is tight and the light is low. Don't let it deter you from this wonderful dining experience.
Nice atmosphere, good food, nice location
Came here for dinner on our last night out for my girlfriend's bachelorette party and it was definitely the perfect way to end our trip! The food and drinks were amazing and we loved our waiter- Greg. He was super knowledgeable of the menu and made great recommendations. Anyone visiting the area should give it a try!
We had been to this place 3 times prior to our latest experience taking out of town guests tonight. The food was fantastic as usual but the ambiance and service was less than stellar. The music was so loud we could hardly carry on a conversation and when we asked the manager why it was so loud we were told that this was how they liked it to be. It made our meal less than enjoyable. Also the service was off as our entrees arrived before our salad plates had been cleared prompting us to hold them until they could be taken from us. We were disappointed and embarrassed and it is doubtful that we will return which is a shame as we have always enjoyed our experiences in the past.
Not sure what made us sick after eating at the Mission but we both felt ill. Wondering if the guacamole ingredients were left out to long.
Great place to celebrate our anniversary. I wish they were better about gluten free. The chips are cross contaminated (that could be avoided!) and charged us extra for corn tortillas to be used as a substitute for the chips. I felt a little nickel and dimed for an upscale restaurant.
This restaurant was rated one of the top 10 restaurants in the area and cost was listed as $. Cost should have been$$! They were busy and our waitress was only there to take the order and drop off the check. Very disappointing.
My go to restaurant for every occasion! It is nothing short of the best!
A+++ service, food, everything. Love this place its always been one of my favorites. We came here after my baby shower to keep the party going, did not disappoint. Love!
Absolutely a gem! My third time going and I can't wait to go again. Food, service and decor was fabulous! Can't get enough of the menu options, the Pumpkin Bread Pudding is the best! And also the Pork Shoulder tacos are divine! Definitely recommend :)
Our server Abeera gave fantastic recommendations and service. My favorite was the tableside guacamole and the empanadas. A pork lettuce wrap appetizer was delicious too! All paired with a perfect Malbec.
Phenomenal, Very impressed how exquisite the food is and how it’s presented and has its touch and taste of Mexico true flavor. I can assure that some of the ingredients are used properly from the Mexican culture. Definitely will consider to visit the mission again.
Very dark and hard to see the menu but amazing food!
A little pricey, but a great place! It was also really loud due to how busy it was, which was strange for a Tuesday. Definitely recommend trying it.
Always a great spot.
Romantic. Food and service are great.
Service and food was top notch! Very welcoming environment. Great for vegetarian options as well. The lighting is quite low so for reading the menu and seeing our food we used out iPhone flashlights. Will definitely be back to try more menu options.
One of the best of Scottsdale! The food is amazing, the service was over the top perfect and the tequila flight was perfection! My only minor complaint is the acoustics are such that the energy of the room makes it hard to hear but it's part of the buzz and the vibe of this magnificent restaurant. You can never go wrong at The Mission!! Homemade guacamole and their chips and salsa are a must.
