My wife and stopped by the mission for a evening meal. You have to remember that this restaurant is only open 5pm - 10pm on Saturday evening. You cannot make reservations unless you have 7 people in your party. Otherwise it's first come first serve. The restaurant is a old church and has a very Mexican them of decorations. My... More

Best to park in parking garage near by,Parking on the streets can be tough. But the experience was well worth everything.We were explained items on the menu and the menu has a partially glossary on the back which really helps.We had a great lunch,tried a few things for the first time,not disappointed at all,Quality food at a very fair price.

Been here many times for dinner, recently tried their Sunday brunch and it was everything we have loved about the Mission on past visits. Tried the Huevos Rancheros and an omelette. Both were outstanding, omelette was loaded with fillings and the huevos had great flavor. Bloody Marys were among the best we've ever had. Service can be spotty but the... More

This was our second try eating at the Mission before we went to a play at Crouse Hinds Theater. The last time we arrived too late a little before 6 and there was a 45 minute wait, and that wouldn't work. They do not take reservations for parties under 7 people, and it is a very small restaurant. This time... More

Went here for Sunday brunch before the Syracuse girls basketball game. It's in an old church. Stained glass windows still there. Decor mixed. We were greeted and seated right away. The waiter was great. Asked the kitchen if the days special--vegetable frittata--could be adjusted since I wouldn't be able to eat three eggs. It was and I enjoyed it immensely.... More

Had to pay to park in lot across street. Busy area near police and courts. Great food. The converted church was pretty but must be hard to heat all the open space. We left on our jackets the entire meal. Service was good, but food a bit slow coming out. Good food. I agree with the other reviews. The green... More

The food was very good and filling. The food came out hot and everything was fresh. The service was slow. It took some time to get our order taken and a bowl of soup and bowl of chili were forgotten. When we asked for them to be removed from the bill there was no problem.

I ate at The Mission with my friend in hopes of some authentic Latino cuisine. The food did not fall short of expectations. I ordered a burrito with chicken, black beans and chipotle tomato salsa. The portion size was enormous and filling. The service, however, was unbelievably poor. The waitress was disrespectful and unfriendly. Unfortunate that such a small part... More
