Spent one night at the ranch so we had no issues getting a 7pm seating - as a ranch guest. It was mid week in November so we sat indoors. I am sure the outdoor patio seating on the warmer evenings is very nice as...More

We celebrated our 30th anniversary with dinner at the Mission Ranch restaurant. We were there on a Monday evening and there was a short wait. The restaurant is very old school and quaint with large mullioned windows, dark green walls, and wood floors. It feels...More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner and drinks outside on the patio. The service was great and so we're the views.

A beautiful historical place to visit. Set aside time to walk around and be inspired. Lots of history about California's early years.

Went here as a couple for dinner on a Tuesday night. Arrived at 1845 and had a 60 minute wait (they don't take reservations). OK if you're prepared for that. The senior manager that night fawned over a couple of tables and barely acknowledged the...More

Not happy to be 'ejected' by our 'hostess' when we arrived for pre drinks and sat at a 'table'! Oh no! Wrong table...! We were no Outlaws...but 'Unforgiven'! We would escape from anywhere! ''Any which way we can'! This could go on.....however, after being shamed...More

Had a few fantastic meals (and drinks) at Mission Ranch. Sometimes, places with terrific views can be short on flavor. Mission Ranch delivers on all accounts. Go early (4 pm) and put your name in for a 5 pm dinnertime table outside. Heaters make even...More

Chilly evenings will require long pants, sweater/coat. Otherwise, dressy casual suffices.

The Ranch serves a brunch on Sunday ( 10:30am to 1:30pm ) that is the best on the Monterey Pennisula. Yes, it is standard that no reservations taken ( only on Easter, Mother's Day & Thanksgiving ) but get there when they... More
