A group of us went for happy hour and had fabulous food, service and drinks. If you sit on the patio the atmosphere is wonderful. I am not a Sushi but some of the group ordered some and said it was fabulous.

The atmosphere is great and we had a cool table outside near the fire pit. They were offering half price wine by the bottle on Tuesdays in November and I was luck enough to enjoy a half price bottle of wine which was cheaper than you could by in a Liquor Store! The ambience and the service was excellent and... More

Mitch's was great. We sat outside and they had all the heaters on as well as the outdoor fire pits. I didn't even need my sweater. For a Saturday night, the place was busy but the staff was very efficient and it made it seem casual and effortless. It was a wonderful atmosphere. The shrimp gazpacho was excellent as well... More

Where do I begin? This place is FANTASTIC! Everything is spot on, valet is friendly and quick, hostess smiling and gave us our choice of tables, sat outside with a lovely view and could hear the live music from inside. Our server, Chris, was great. Didn't rush us, perfectly attentive and yet let us chill after dinner. The dinner, OMG... More

We have been to Mitch's for lunch at least a dozen times over the last couple of years, and we're never disappointed. Service is excellent, and the lunch menu is extensive, with a sushi menu available as well. Even with a varied menu, the quality and preparation is always very good. The patio is a wonderful spot, with a huge... More

The valet from Cliff restaurant recommended this location because it reminded him of Sunday dinner in his grandmother's back yard. The restaurant is well decorated and would be a perfect place to propose to the love of your life at. They have indoor and outdoor seating along with a substantial bar seating area. We have the welcome back 3 course... More

After shopping on El Paseo I stopped into Mitch's for a cocktail and sushi roll. The very helpful server recommended the 808 roll and I loved it. It's a lovely space with great art work throughout. It's obviously a popular stop for the locals as it filled up fast.
