Very disappointing experience. It was way too loud to talk during dinner even in back dining room. I felt like I was at a giant FRAT party. Food was mediocre & overpriced. Server described faijitas as a giant portion with tremendous presentation. They came out, however, with small portion of chicken, barely any vegetables for $21++. I will not be back here. Much better food & vibes at other places in DC. This place is auditioning to be overhyped, overpriced college sports bar. Go elsewhere!
Great experience for election night!
Mission Navy Yard offers slow service, and remarkably uninteresting food.
Mission Navy Yard has very poor service. Don’t believe the hype. Our meal food and chips were brought at the exact same time.
Music was too loud in the dining area at 9pm
The food was good; service was the worst I’ve had in a couple years.
Consistently decent place. Good margaritas, good food. It is large and sprawling and every time we go there are multiple special events happening. This is fine, except that it gets pretty noisy. We go here before DC United matches and it is an excellent place for that sort of gathering. I will say that we have had really good service each of the four times we have been here.
Overall, a solid bet of a place.
My order was wrong twice. The jalapeño cakes were dry and horrible.
Not vegan friendly
The kitchen was disorganized, both in missing our appetizer, and initially bringing out the wrong order before correcting. The chicken in the dishes we ordered appeared to be unseasoned. Server was nice, but the management had no control over missed orders and surly bussers. Overheard an issue at a another table and multiple apologies from the server there as well. Manager made no effort to check in on either table. Could be an awesome place if the mistakes are corrected.
Our waiter, Maddux, did an excellent job-would recommend going and sitting in his section.
The food just wasn’t as good as hoped. I had fish tacos and buffalo shrimp— both just average. The pepitos on the fish was odd. Also very few non-carbonated (nonalcoholic) drink options. At least have iced tea.
We went for happy hour and stayed for dinner. My drink seemed weak but tasty. The fish taco was surprisingly spicy, but good. The pork taco was outstanding. They were generous with chips and salsa. The noise level rose as we sat there so we could barely hear each other. This is a good place for a casual dinner if you don’t mind the noise.
This is a great place to enjoy a festive meal. The game was on so it was loud but I was still able to hear my table mates. I have been here at least 6 times since they opened and I have always had a great experience.
Definitely get the queso fundido. Maddux is a sweetheart. Do not buy the carafe of margarita - you’re best just buying individual drinks 🍹
The happy hour is not the same is Mission in DuPont and they messed up our order in multiple ways and refused to help out us with comping our bill for their error.
Was nice until about 9pm when it became a legit club. So loud for dinner but probably fun at the bar.
Good food and service. Didn’t offer iced tea which was a little odd.
Place is way too loud during baseball games. Avoid altogether on Saturdays if possible. Food is great, service phenomenal but just literal screaming from several hundred people is distracting
Very loud for game day, not ideal for a romantic date
Very loud, main course came out before our appetizers and drinks, called for manager who really didn't seem to care
Holy crap it is loud in there. I can't believe they meet OSHA requirements for their employees.
Really cool spot. However, they tried to seat our party of 6 (with a reservation) to a booth that was made to seat 4 people. We had to request moving to an open table that had 6 seats. Once we moved, it was much better. Regarding the food, the quality was very good. Tacos are the main attraction and it's stated on the menu to order 2-3 per person. When the tacos came out, they plated all of the same tacos together instead of giving each person their own plate with their own 3 tacos they ordered. With how loud it was, it was hard to hear the server on which taco was which. We got it figured out, but it was kind of a pain. I understand doing it the way they do, but it's not very convenient for the customer.
I️ love how considerate they are of gluten allergies! Literally the kindest!
Mostly meh. I had the braised short rib, which was a plentiful dish, but kind of bland. It was heaped on top of some sort of corn mush that was utterly without flavor. My wife had the veggie carnitas taco, which she quite enjoyed. She thought they were better flavored than some veggie tacos at other restaurants in the area. There was a DC United game the night we went so the place was absolutely packed and LOUD. I know restaurants want to be cool and have all these hard surfaces, but it was quieter in the Anthem for the concert I saw there the night before. Time to hang some cool Mexican tapestry or blankets from the ceiling. How about some sound tiles under the tables? Do something. My ears were ringing when we left. I wouldn't rush back.
Way too crowded, both for noise level and because service was SO slow.
We really enjoyed our first time at Mission Navy Yard and would not hesitate to go back. The service was excellent and the food was pretty good. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Mission and we will plan to go back.
The host staff was very friendly and seated us quickly. It took 29 minutes for a waiter to come to our table ti rake our order. The drinks did arrive quickly, though.
The menu has exactly 1 vegetarian protein, which the restaurant had inexplicably run put of as of 7:30 pm on a Saturday night. As a vegetarian, that meant i was reduced to choosing from the three vegetarian appetizers on the menu. Very disappointing to say the least.
The waiter, while friendly, was very unhelpful with recommendations, and unapologetic about the lack of a vegetarian option.
In addition, the restaurant was extremely loud, even in the corner table that i was in.
Overall, it was a disappointing first experience but I’m willing to give it another try.
Great tacos--especially the pork and steak. Guac was good just pricey. Happy hour is a good deal and the drinks are on point
As our friend said, "This place is the epitome of 'gentrification tacos'." It was the least memorable meal of our lives. The margaritas were extremely sweet and watered down. The saddest part about the food: the duck confit taco was the best item we had. We even decided to skip churros for dessert because we didn't want this place to ruin churros forever. The salsa tasted like Ragu pasta sauce, my wife's shrimp taco consisted of fried shrimp drenched in Tabasco, and the pulled pork taco tasted like grease and no spices. Avoid it.
Service was slow, we asked for water 3-4 times before our waiter brought it to us. Normally we wouldn't care about this, but when the food is spicy, that matters to us! The margaritas felt more sugary than they should and the chicken and pork tacos had zero flavor. The best part about the meal was the chips + salsa and the overall design of the restaurant. We had very high hopes for Mission as it looks really neat online but overall the waiter was horrible and completely forgot about us for 75 % percent of the time we were there.
Nice place but very loud.
