    We were getting together with another couple and had to choose a place on Coronado, last minute, looked up on web restaurants in area and Mistral came up. Reviews were good so chose it. Was surprised it was out a ways but found it just fine, Staff was great, accommodating, a bit pricy for the amount of food offered. I would have liked a side with my dinner, or house salad included in the entree. It is in the Loews Hotel so guests are probably the main clients. I would not go back out there if I were not a guest. So many places on Coronado to choose from and not as pricey. But overall they were very friendly, even the chef came out to visit. This was the first time I used open table and it worked great.

    We were there for my Mother's birthday celebration. I had advised the restaurant ahead of time and we were given a table by the window with a spectacular view of the bay and ocean. The waiter was very friendly, professional and provided excellent service. The chef himself came out to great us and went over some of the items on the menu. We each had a different seafood dish and all were excellent. Highly recommend this place and we will be back again.

    The view from this very good restaurant is fantastic - San Diego Bay from a spit of land on Coronado. The service was also incredible, with the chef spending quite some time chatting with us (and with other diners) about his menu. A couple of the dishes could have used a little more flavor, but overall the food was delicious.

    Mistral is beautifully located in Coronado. It has a fantastic view of the bay and the city. The problem is the food. It was way overcooked and not tasty. The salad came in what looked like cereal bowls and was tasteless. For the price, I would not go there again. The best thing was the service, the view, and the wine and bread at the beginning. Desserts were good also. The rest was terrible. I know they are currently closed and are remodeling. Hopefully, it will mean a new menu and chef!

    How often haven't we gone out for a nice dinner and been disappointed in one way or another? Well, not at Mistral. The ambiance was great (awesome view), the wait staff were charming (personal stop-by from the chef) and the food was classy and tasty (including a true medium-rare steak!). We had the $29 sunset 3-course special, which was an excellent value. The Bombe dessert was a fitting finale to a well-spent evening. We will return...

    This was our last place we dined during our trip to San Diego and we had a lot of great meals. The food was great and it was nice to have the chef come out and check on us a couple of times. We had the Chef's Charcuterie Board, which was a mix of cheeses and meats. The smoke salmon done in house was the best I have ever had. I could've had a plate of it for a meal. If you like smoked salmon, you really need to get here. I had the duck and waffle which was cooked perfectly. I finished with an apricot tart. I love apricot so this was an extra treat. The food was also reasonably priced which was a real value considering the rest of the hotel is not.

    Entrees with no vegetable is not good at these prices. Noise level was very loud from RV'ers & no one asked them to "keep it down' ". Not a very romantic venue for an anniversary celebration. Charged $50 for the same wine we ordered at $28. Gift card for $75 was mistaken for a 5% discount card. Would not recommend for any function. Duck on a waffle not a very good combo.

    This restaurant has a unique curved layout allowing for great views of the bay all the way through. The floor to ceiling windows allow for the entire restaurant to have great views actually. The food was spectacular; our server suggested the tasting menu which allowed us to try a little of everything and it was a great idea. The strawberry and kale salad was amazing as was the steak and chocolate bomb dessert. I also tried their spicy mojito, which actually has jalapeno extracts/juice... I do not like spicy food but this was truly unique and savory! Highly recommend!

    Our server was outstanding. We visited from Colorado for our 35th anniversary and stayed at Loews. While we were very impressed with the view, server, and wine, we must say the food was no where near as good as George's California Modern or Top of the Market where we also dined during our trip. Both of the other locations we ate at offered us a special treat at no extra charge since it was our 35th anniversary. After reading glowing reviews in Fodor's and Frommer's we were expecting a bit better fare at Mistral.

    I had read the reviews and was "under-whelmed" when entering the restaurant. It was quiet, the decor is somewhat stark - although a beautiful view. The service was hit and miss - although Daniel was very passionate and knowledgeable about the menu - and did a great job of describing the various items. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant, the new menu, the wine offerings, and was very efficient and did his utmost best to ensure we enjoyed our evening. To our surprise - the food was really amazing and made up for the minor slip ups that we encountered with the timing of our food arriving. I think this restaurant has great potential - and if it's great food and service you are looking for then this is the place

    We were one of two couples in the entire restaurant. Service was as expected excellent as there was no one in the restaurant. The problem was the main course. We both ordered the salmon special as it sounded delicious. The problem was that the salmon was cooked on the outside and raw on the inside. Basically ruined our appetites after taking the first few bites. I wouldn't go back to this restaurant.

    Although the overall ambience and view is quite lovely, the layout of the restaurant means that a server will be whizzing by your table every minute or two throughout the evening, unless you are seated by the window and looking outward. The servers all walk very quickly, and although they are quiet, the high level of activity was distracting. It may be with attention to staffing and server station size and layout that this activity could be reduced.

    I can't believe the management could serve such pretentious fluff . Serving up pseudo continental food at a price they should be ashamed off . Calling it a fixed price menu. On top of the poor food experience to be told that they had no wine glasses and we're serving the wine in water glasses. The management are giving the message to their customers. We don't care just take it or leave it. The waiter then announced an 18 percent gratuity which was not advertised. It was refused without any problem. After all the derivation of TIP a 200 year old acronym means to improve performance. There is a cold ambience no quiet music and a room so dark that it is difficult to read the menu.Customers should be aware of the experience awaiting them.

    Once you get past the cranky gentleman at the desk you shall experience staff that may be the finest in the area. This includes our old friend, Austin, who is still impressing the guests with his drive. Service is paramount, from the parking valets to the food runners. Most impressive. The restaurant always is dressed in beautiful decor and there is quite a view. The hotel itself seems to be attracting more convention business and this reflects in the upswing for Mistral, which has been reinvented yet again . We love this latest iteration, designed by a new chef, described as Korean and a sushi specialist. Whatever his background, the man has constructed a wonderful menu of small plates and half portion entrees that are delicious.

    Dined on 1/4/2014
    Terrible atmosphere and inept service ruined an otherwise decent meal. The whole Loews Coronado property is dreadful -- it looks like a tacky condo development. On our visit, a large and noisy party had taken over the restaurant, which should have been closed to the public. The best the manager could offer was "We never know what to expect with these large groups." The servers attempted to be friendly and engaging but were mostly intrusive. The loud, pulsating background music was hopelessly wrong. The food wasn't bad -- the black cod and arctic char entrees were not inspired but were well cooked and nicely presented. Still, this place needs to be completely rethought.

    We celebrated family Christmas at Mistrals and expected more. The pre-set holiday menu was a bit confusing and of very trite portions except the main course. The lamb was the best selection and was well prepared. It was about the only course that made it worth while. The fruit cake was chocolate based and dry. The 18% built in gratuity was bit obnoxious on top of what was already an overpriced meal. The resort itself was quite disappointing as well. We expected something grandeur.

    Poor lighting, stained chairs. The food was fine - decent pricing and tasted fine. One person ordered the steak medium and was highly undercooked - which obviously is correctable - but it is also not the greatest situation where the rest of us eat while he waits for his meal to return. They were apologetic and did remove the charge for his meal - which was a VERY nice gesture. Since our waiter was no where in sight by the time the steak done-ness issue was realized - we had to ask another waiter if he could let our waiter know we needed him. The entry and large stairway in the hotel is lovely and was nicely decorated for the holidays. It was also special to see all of the decorated boats outside as well as a large gingerboat display inside.
