The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu is limited. The food was great but very pricey. Breakfast for 3 was $60.00 without tip and that was not the brunch. Lunch was $65.00 without tip.

Had drinks in the President lounge and lunch on the patio. Top notch service and quality food. Tour the hotel before you leave, a most interesting place. Check the birds that talk, they say "hello".

The historic Mission Inn in Riverside, California, has an excellent Sunday Champaign Brunch. Champaign, orange juice, coffee, and water glasses were kept full throughout the brunch. The food was hot, and cold fruit was fresh. Service was excellent. It was hard to decide what we liked best. Desserts were very good, and again hard to decide what we liked best,... More

I have lived in Riverside for 25 years. The Mission Inn is the city's iconic landmark, and worth a visit (especially in Christmas season.) But the hotel's general service restaurant is nothing special and a bit pricey. In contrast, Duane's Restaurant, located within the Mission Inn, is probably Riverside's (if not Inland Southern California's) top restaurant. That said, running neck-and-neck... More

This is an iconic location , not to be missed if you are in Riverside area for any length of time. The two bars on opposite sides of lobby are both worth having a drink in. There was a lounge singer in the bar close to "Diane's" who was truly bad , butchering lyrics from van Morrison and jimmy buffet,... More

We paid for a tour of the hotel and were so enchanted with all that we saw and learned we decided to stay for lunch on Saturday. Up to this point everyone in the hotel had been more than courteous, helpful, and welcoming. We waited for the hostess to appear to get a table and were informed everyone had to... More

It was our first time to visit the Mission Inn and dining at Duane's steakhouse located inside the Mission Inn Hotel. Duane's is a high-end, very classy place. The ambience is amazing with the décor and with the history of the Mission Inn. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. The other more casual restaurants also looked inviting and... More

We have been coming to the Mission Inn for brunch on family holidays for several years now. On each occasion, we find the variety of food is extensive, the service is good and the environment is relaxing. The kids love to talk to the parrots and play on the cannons. The teenagers love to wander the grounds. The adults love... More

For the very first time we had a negative experience at the Mission Inn Restaurant. Have been going there for many years, always happy with the service and food. Today we were celebrating a birthday. After ordering our meals, we heard our server tell other guests about the wonderful buffet available, but he never told us about it. We had... More

We had a most excellent meal at the restaurant. The Mission is the real reason we went there. Scenic Beauty is the Mission Inn. A truly wonderful place for your next Vacation. A Great place for friends, family or business.
