The oldest and yet hippest place in Riverside

Only in a smallish city like Riverside could the oldest and most touristy location also be the hippest and the most amusing. You can enjoy the architectural details, or watch some decrepit baseball fan pick up on women in the sports bar. Admire the lovely garden while somebody argues with their... read more

You can enjoy the architectural details, or watch some decrepit baseball fan pick up on women in the sports bar. Admire the lovely garden while somebody argues with their surly teenagers. Part Disneyland, almost authentic in its artificiality,... More

My family and I were looking for a place for Easter Brunch as we would be in Riverside on Easter. I decided to try to brunch at the Mission Inn this year after reading reviews of the hotel. The brunch was very nice, we decided to eat in the music room, and very glad we did. If you sit in... More

This is truly a beautiful hotel. There was so much to see and explore, you can understand the long and grand history it has. So many famous dignitaries and celebrities have stayed here for good reason. This is maintained extremely well, kept clean and attention to detail is evident everywhere. My wife also enjoyed very much her time at their... More

Food was excellent! I took some out of town family and friends there and we had a lovely lunch. Service was very, very good and we ate in the patio and it was lovely. We had a wonderful time!

The service was horrible and the food wasn't very good. The best part of the meal was the salad and bread. Will not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed in the hotel and opted for dinner in this piazza-like place. Staff was very good. They had a seafood buffet but we past as it was nothing special. I had the spicy past with sausage and my wife had the veal chop with something (can't remember). Food was very good, service was even better. The weather was perfect.... More

We went for a late lunch on a rainy Sunday and went for quesadillas and nachos from the bar menu. I'm sure they have more classy food as well, but this was just what we were craving for. Absolutely delicious and the location is just great. Can't wait to come back for a romantic dinner.
