We sat at the bar and had some absolutely wonderful food at Mario's. It is directly across the street from the Mission Inn and I think is as good if not better than the restaurants on the hotel premises. Would highly recommend a stop there!

The variety/quality at Mario's is generally good but the pricing for entrees seems to be a bit high. The atmosphere is very nice and located across from the historic Mission Inn, a good place for date night dinner.

Grabbed a spot at the bar on a late night start. The bartenders were really helpful and professional. We had a bottle of wine and all had an amazing meal. I'd recommend the risotto or the pork chop.
