I'm one for outside dining, and love Mexican food so thought I'd try this place. Was in town for business staying in Riverside.
Arrived around 6:30 on a Tuesday night, not too crowded. Service was a little slow as mentioned previously, but I wasn't concerned...was enjoying the outside dining and relaxing.
Food was good, though not the best mexican I've ever had was tasty and was warm upon arrival. Had a margarita that was pretty tasty (not the top shelf tho)
Liked the garden setting. Walked around the property for 5 mins just to see a little more history about this place. Wish I wasn't so stuffed and tired, or else would have adventured more.
My entree (enchiladas), drink and cupcake for dessert came to $30+...so pretty steep.
But it was a nice evening anyway.

Five us just went for lunch. We beat the crowd by a few minutes. Jason, our server, was great; good personality, attentive and like he actually cared about his job and his customers (unlike so many restaurants these days). However, the food delivery time took way too long (not Jason's fault) and then two out of us five got the wrong plates. Jason recognized it before he even set them down and come back with the correct items in a sec. The food was hot this time and we all enjoyed our choices.

We really love this place, what a grat venue, garden setting at the Mission Inn, WOW!

However, we have been for dinner twice in he last half of 2010 and both times the service was slow and nonchalant and the FOOD was COLD! The lady manager was not very professional either. Yes, we will be back and love to take friends there. Let's hope Duane Roberts gets a clue but since the place is always crowded perhaps he does not car. Too bad.

Very Tasty Mexican Food at the nicest hotel in Riverside, dining is on the patio but no worries, we went in the winter and they had those patio heaters which made it comfortable.

The setting is nice, but you have to ask to be seated since the host disappeared. Food took a long time to get to the table, waiter forgot to bring salsa, the service is not great. They used to have different salsas now they have a very bland watery dipping sauce that tasted like weak canned salsa. I have eaten here for years and the quility gets worse every time. 2 taco platters for $30 I expect better quality and warm food served.
