Ate here on a recent Thursday night. It was so noisy we requested a table outside on the patio. They have heaters out there so it was very comfortable and no wait. Our waitress was very "business like" - not friendly but very efficient. We...More

Fantastic location with a one in a million view. Staff very friendly, excellent wine list but unfortunately the food is very average. The artichoke starter was barely ok and the hamburger my daughter ordered was partly burned. The view and the atmosphere in the restaurant...More

I'm pretty sure the Mission Ranch restaurant does not take reservations. It's a first come first served system where they will take your name and buzz you when the table is ready.
