An experience

I went there in last November, the place was nice, and with very good atmosphere ... and is really an old building like a Church.. Food was good, service was little slow, and things were bit (as per me) expensive... but can be tried once..

He emphasises "the mission", we went there and made a really very good experience, well cooked, pricey food mexican style, friendly staff - overall it was excellent. In particular their special environment - it seems to be a former church... More

Nice restaurant, delicious, inventive food - especially the seafood, a little pricey, but not bad for Syracuse.

A really fun feel to this place. The food is good and they have a "tasting "of their various salsas which comes in handy when selecting your favorite salsa for your entree. Wine and beer only

Simply delicious! The crab tostada was outstanding. The Mission Restaurant is inside a renovated church. We thought it was closed from the outside!! Inside is lively and fun with terrific food for all. I have picky children, and there were great choices for them and for me...more of a foodie! Enjoy!

The Mission is a great, authentic Mexican place. The location is great if you are seeing a show or something at the War Memorial. The food is amazing- try the Nacho’s and the salsa’s – add guacamole! YUM!!!! The restaurant is in an old converted church which really transports you and makes you feel like you are somewhere other than... More

So, I'm giving this an 'average' rating because the food was really wonderful. If I was rating on service only, this place would not get anything. My husband and I went and asked if we could get a seat at one of the lower tables. The host took our name down and said "sure, why don't you guys wait outside... More

Try the sangria or wine margaritas to start. Get the crab appetizer and choose from any burrito, taco, or enchilada and you'll be satisfied. And the prices are great. The atmosphere makes you feel like you're in Mexico.
