I ate there for lunch. The service was excellent. I was disappointed in my meal, however. I realize it's a relatively expensive place, but I expected more than the three (3) scallops I got with my meal. Even that wouldn't have been so bad, but the rice or whatever it was (it was hard to tell) that came with it was a pile of flavorless mush. I was very disappointed and will not be returning.
This place has a fabulous selection of wines. On any Tuesday night all of the wines, including half bottles, are half price. Most places only offer a few wines at a discount price, but Mission's full list is 50% off on Tuesday nights.
The atmosphere is calming and the service is friendly. The menu is short and simple.
It is a real treat to enjoy fine wines at the same price as one would find in a local retailer. The best of both worlds are available on Tuesdays in downtown Minneapolis.
