It was great but the restaurant was WAY too dark. It usually doesn’t bother me but every single person had to use their phone lights to see the menu! Servers carry lights with them because it’s so dark. Other than that, the food was great
It was dark inside when we arrived. Then they reduced the lighting even more. Nearly all patrons used their cell phone lights to read the menu. The wait staff did not have lights to illuminate anything. The manager said the owner likes it that dark. Incredible.
We made reservations for an 40th wedding anniversary lunch since it was highly rated. We were one of three parties in the restaurant The table side guacamole was good but took a while for them to make it. one order we brought to us wrong they had to go back and corrected. So we actually ate separately. They we aware of a special date but as it turned it was not the meal we hoped for. I realize things happen but we choose a higher rated and higher price for a memorable meal. The restaurant drop the ball.
Fun place. Outstanding value with first class service and excellent food. Very comfortable and relaxed old school charm.
Amazing food. Wonderful ambiance!!
Dinner was scheduled to honor a friend moving out of state. While I’ve been previously, it was a first time experience for my guests. Needless to say, they’re stilling raving about the evening. We enjoyed our meal family style, ordering two apps, a salad, and two entrees to share. This left is the perfect amount of room for dessert which was served with the wow factor of a sparkler. Start to finish, everything was fantastic. The crew is already planning their next visit. Thank you, Mission for always making our special occasions truly a night to remember!
The Mission is a wonderful restaurant to meet for a lunch with special friends.
Every time I go to The Mission I enjoy the best _____ I've ever had. Just fill in the blank. Salmon. Steak tacos. Tableside guac. We were seated early and our service was flawless. My only knock on The Mission is it is SUPER DARK inside. It makes for nice ambiance while dining, but for real, you can't even see the menu. So glance at it online before you go or just pull it up on your phone.
Always love the food at the Mission whether in Old Town Scottsdale or Kierland.
Oh my goodness dinner was amazing & server ROCKED! We had a little Holiday Cheer with customers and they enjoyed the entire evening.
Love the mission! Truly love the service and food and ambiance
Our 4th visit and we enjoy the food, service and surroundings. Best Guacamole and salsa!!
It was ok. Just ok. Waiter really hyped up the swordfish and porchetta but both were boring. Table side gauc was good but not abundant. Multiple waiters came to our table and made it a very confusing experience. Not sure what the hype was about or if it was just an off night.
It was much too dark, not sure what they were trying to accomplish . And I can see just fine in the dark. I"ll have to tell my friends about it.
Great experience while attending the farmer's market across the street. What a find and what great food with very authentic latin cuisine!
Went with friends on an early Friday evening. Arrived to a partially filled restaurant and put into a terrible corner with limited ability to get in and out along with those already there. Lighting was very dim and everyone around was using their phones to see menus. Service was good and appreciated. The food was lackluster. Seafood soup was over spiced and chorizo pork shoulder very dry and under seasoned. Left disappointed given the high expectations and even higher price for the mediocre food and ambiance experience. Will try other places in Old Town before going back.
Never will you have a bad meal here. Top 3 favorite place in AZ.
The food was exceptional as always and the service was excellent. My only complaints are it was a bit cold in the inside dining room and waayyy too dark.
Angel was ama big! Great experience!!
Very dark inside. We went for dinner and had to use our phones to see the.menu and each other. Wouldn't recommend for dinner. However, lunch on the patio is always pleasant. Our server was excellent.
Way too dark-couldn’t see menu. Sat in a very cramped area almost on top of other patrons. Table-side guacamole was average compared to the past. The signature smoked pork tasted like it was par-boiled. Service was good. Chips and salsa good. Margarita’s were very good!
Good food, cool atmosphere , very loud, impossible to have conversation with fellow diners
Our server was AWFUL. We asked for drinks multiple times before they came out. He messed up orders. He asked us 7 times if we wanted guacamole and we said no, but then we were charged for it. He did not seem to care about our table and was gone for a while at a time when the restaurant was not busy. I love this place but do not want to return with this service.
Food was great but very dark in evening and tea lights at table useless to see menu or food!!
Six of us for Thanksgiving and it was spectacular!
Don't think it twice. Great place to have a great night. Try the corn and enjoy dessert with a great coffee.
Our 3rd annual Thanksgiving lunch and 6th visit overall.
We love it. Impeccable and knowledgeable wait staff and phenomenal food and cocktails. I dream about the chipotle grits with honey and cotija cheese. I’m serious.
It was too dim - not enough light to see the menu. We had to use our iPhone light! It was hard to appreciate the food. The table was too small, crowded with plates (sides, sharing plates, main plates)
I'd take someone here one time, if I was trying to impress, or do a one time celebration. But I would not come back on any regular basis. I think food was great, in presentation and taste, and server did her best. But it was not comfortable (noise, darkness, small table). Not worth paying a large bill.
Great atmosphere, Great wait staff & Great Food!!
Service was very poor, and we are not the picky type.
Much too noisy. Had to lean across table to understand what was being said.
We decided to eat at the Bar to see the football game. The fresh guacamole is a must for a starter. We had Fish & Steak Tacos that were both excellent. They have a great wine list and the Bartender provided a taste to finalize our selections. Great location with indoor 7 outdoor seating. It's a must go to when visiting Scottsdale.
The ambiance makes for a great date night or small social gathering. We went with friends and sat outside in November with the heat lamps near by and were very comfortable. We had the anejo tequila flight and each tried a different margarita. They were all excellent! The table side guacamole was sooo delicious! Highly recommend this place for amazing drinks, food, and ambiance.
Everything was great, food , drinks and service. The only problem I had is when I made the reservations they asked if there was a special occasion and I said yes it was my anniversary. They did nothing about being my anniversary, not even mention it. Why Ask ?
Love the Mission atmosphere and food. The service is always a crapshoot, sometimes ok, and other times just poor. If it were not for the food, I would probably move on.
Great service, great food! Very dark- bring your flashlight!
Noise level made it hard to hear conversation with guest.
Price for alcohol drinks was excessive
Tables too close together, couldn’t slide between tables without turning sideways.
Server focused on table with two businessmen, up sales main objective, ordering only what you want is met with disdain.
Food and service was outstanding!
Great table side guacamole!
