Great food, great service, and not over priced. The menu was creative and service was great. Our server, Jemar, was friendly and knowledgeable. Went there at the end of our multi-state, multi-canyon tour and what a find. I needed a restaurant that was open late because we'd be arriving late into Phoenix. The Mission had a great menu and stays open till 11 p.m. so it was perfect. The food was bursting with flavor and the only reason I took one star off was because it was a bit noisy for us. My 18 yr old son who has had salmon from La Jolla to San Francisco and Nappa said his salmon dish was the best dish of the year for him because it was not just cooked perfectly but because of the creative pairing of the sauces as well. Will definitely come back to The Mission next time we're in town. Even though we're all tired we enjoyed our food very much.

My fiancee and I just arrived from a lovely, whirlwind visit to Sedona and after arriving at our downtown Scottsdale hotel inquired about restaurants. The Mission was one of the suggestions since it was close by and in Old Town.

We were very pleased with the choices on the menu, the dinner, the drinks and the service. Despite not having reservations, we did not have to wait long. But we were surprised how busy it was for a Monday night.
The first table we were escorted to was wedged between two rather loud couples. We decided to try the outdoor patio despite the heat. Sitting near the giant cooling fan was the tipping point. It was quiet, lovely and charming out there.
If we lived in or around Scottsdale we would definitely go back.

Our family of four, visiting from Australia, found this restaurant after walking into town from Hotel Valley Ho. We had no reservation on a Thursday night (24 April 2014), so we were told there would be an hour wait. We made no hesitation in accepting a wait list booking as we saw the great food coming from the kitchen. Scottsdale is a relaxing place to stroll around for an hour, so we window shopped the galleries and gift shops. We came back after 45 minutes and waited in the bar for about 20 mins or so. Whilst waiting for our table, the bar staff were so helpful in taking our round of drinks. As there were a few people waiting, the staff brought around complimentary mini margaritas for the adults. Once seated to our table, the staff were excellent. One of the girls was from Napa and she gave a ideas for our next US holiday and tips for a wine selection with our meal. We ordered the guacamole, made to order at the table, which was a hit with our teenage kids. Superb Mexican fusion dishes, which we shared. The manager chatted to us at the end of the meal about the restaurant and the experienced chef. A Great experience.
