I have had three meals at Mision 19 and they were all excellent. It is a beautiful venue. The service is stellar. The food is very well prepared. I always get seafood dishes and so enjoy the way they prepare their octopus, shellfish and fish....More

Crossing the border is easier these days, and the new checkpoints are less congestive. We went on a Friday night leaving from downtown San Diego. Bracero, a local SD favorite and Mision 19's chef Javier Plascencia parted ways so we decided to go straight to...More
