We happened upon this restaurant for lunch, and loved it. In fact, we then returned for dinner too! High quality ingredients and capable preparation and service. Thanks, our meals were excellent.

This restaurant came highly recommended and it didn’t disappoint. The food was excellent as were the blood orange margaritas.

It can get crowded, really crowded but it's worth the wait in my opinion. Just sip on your favorite Margarita while you wait to sit down to eat.

Came here for lunch the first time on Monday. When you first walk in, the place seems too dark, it seemed to lighten up a bit once we got used to a candle lit room. I am sure coming in from the bright AZ summer...More

We went to the restaurant with Our daughter and son in law last night. The food was excellent and so was the service, what made it less than excellent overall was the poor table lighting and the ridiculously pricey margaritas. We liked the atmosphere, but...More

The food and the service are pretty decent. Seems the restaurant has a policy that they will not give ice tea to go in this heat! Used to love this place - guess not anymore! Management needs to understand that this is AZ with 100+...More

We have dined at the Mission four times in the last six months and our experiences have been consistently excellent with each visit. This is fine dining, but not pretentious by any means. Attentive waitstaff, adventurous menu, good drinks, wine, and beer. Our preference is...More

We ate on the outdoor patio, so I wasn't really in a position to notice the inside seating area. Perhaps you should contact them and ask. Regarding the Scottsdale Old Town area, we also dined at Los Olivos. We were... More

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.
