Pleasant place

This restaurant was less casual and a little more expensive, but still very good. The art inside was pleasant to look at and there were painting on the ceiling. Nice place to talk and enjoy good food.

This was not our first "mission" to the Mission Inn. We have made it a regular stop when we are in the Riverside area on Sundays. When visiting my daughter and son-in-law, we invited my son-in-laws mother and some other friends to join us. This is a bit "spend" but worth every dime. The selection in the Sunday brunch buffet...

Nice place for dinner and special occasions. Can be pricey but they have specials, especially for the spa and restaurants.

We have eaten there at the buffet several times (Mother's Day, Wedding Reception, Christmas Party, New Year's Stay) and when we play tourist and stay at the hotel for a couple of nights. We have never been disappointed.

I had an out of town visitor and thought to bring her here for breakfast since the mission inn is so beautiful. The web-site says open 6:30am we went around 7:30 and they said the courtyard patio doesn't open until 9am. I told the hostess that I didn't see that on the website. My friend's Bloody Mary was very nice... More

If you want an elegant night out without having to wear a tux or a formal, this is the place. Get your napkin laid in your lap, and have a waiter hovering over you for your every need. The best part of this restaurant comes on Sunday for the brunch. Amazing amount of wonderful choice select foods. All you can... More

Was lucky enough to eat here last night. Wow. Wow. Wow. The vibe is amazing (you start stop looking around) and the food was fantastic. And I loved the list of martinis - all based on famous people (movie stars / presidents) that had stayed there (I had a 'Nixon'). We ate in the Patio - the interior courtyard, so... More

We ate breakfast there, as we were staying in the hotel. We loved the patio, which is in an interior courtyard. It was a beautiful setting, and our breakfast was good. You can get wifi in the restaurant by choosing the "meetings" option.

Wish I would've come here for dinner but we ended up strolling in here after dinner one night. It was so beautiful at night all lit up. Very quiet and romantic. So we decided to get dessert. I ordered the chocolate molten cake and my husband got the bread pudding which was the suggestion of our waiter Stephen. The chocolate... More
