We ate at the Chef's Table in the
Jewel Box at Mistral, and it is one of the pinnacles of excellence in the Seattle area -easily outpaces most tasting menus in the city, and competes mightily with those few at the top. The courses were presented beautifully, elegantly plated, and delicious. The hosts graciously met our request for some wine replacements, and the special cocktail (available only at the Chef's Table) was fantastic. This is our 4th trip to the Chef's Table and the service, food, and experience have always been top notch. The only mar on an otherwise delightful evening was the construction across the street. A minor visual blight, and closed shades made it non-distracting. Another excellent experience - most highly recommended!"

This is a tasting menu with just
the proteins listed. So it's key for the waiter to explain each dish. Instead our waiter just plop each dish down and walk way. How odd. The food was good but unexceptional. Not a good value for the price."

We came here for a Valentine's
weekend dinner so it was probably busier than usual. As expected, the food was absolutely wonderful and exquisite. Every bite of every dish we had was wonderful and completely a treat. We were primarily disappointed in the service. There was SO MUCH TIME between each dish. Our 5 course dinner was 3 hours long and really dragged on. On top of that: - no offer to take our coats when we first sat down - after sitting down, it was a good 5-10 minutes before anyone even greeted us, gave us a menu or poured water for us - no offer for tea or coffee to go with our dessert - no one ever came by to ask how our food was The only decent service was from the wine sommelier who spoke to us with enthusiasm."

Food was delicious and the service
was world class! My date and I were blown away. We will both highly recommend the Jewel Box to all of our friends!"

This was a perfect Christmas eve
dinner. It was quiet, and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Each dish was a beautiful surprise, which made it even better, and the wine pairing was notable. We had some wines we would not have chosen that were fantastic with the food, and most of the food was exceptional. We were happy, and would go back. The service was good, although a bit precious. Details of the food (and wine) were explained to us, sometimes in a way that seemed overly pretentious, although I suspect it was just meant to make us feel comfortable. At one point, when I cleaned my plate, the server said "good job!" to me. A bit overly familiar for an elegant and very expensive dinner."

This is by far the best place I
have ever took my wife to. Located in the heart of Seattle, I was so glad to get last minute reservations. The waiter was wonderful, he knew everything. The best part about the meal was that we didn't pick the courses. They had a great wine selection."
Dined on 12/24/2013
Expensive, but this multi-course
experience from fresh ingredients will leave you very satisfied... Forget Canlis and some predetermined menu (and I love Canlis) -- this is an experience that is based upon ingredients. You get a menu of things fresh for that day and you can "opt out" of things you may not like -- the rest is up to the chef. Course after course comes out, with wines beautifully paired from aperitif to dessert."

The food was excellent but the
disappointment was that there was too much time between dishes. We added the wine pairings but the pours were small. For a $350 dinner it was disappointing. The chef/owner met us at the door and the table and he's very personable."

You tell them your aversions, and
the Chef puts his best foot forward along with pairings. If you appreciate pleasant surprises.....I recommend"

Truly innovative and fresh. Chef
William never fails to amaze us. We so enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary at Seattle's best restaurant. Thank you all for a memorable evening of perfect tastes!"

Mistral is a place to luxuriate
and savor some of the most delectable food creations."
Dined on 5/14/2013
Very nice meal, no complaints, but
simply way too expensive. $60 for matched wines for three glasses of wine is way above comparable pricing elsewhere. At these prices, I will not return."

Tuesday night, early dinner and
was seated in the farest corner of the restaurant. Counted 3 tables seated. The host pulled out one chair and could not get back to reading his book fast enough so i pulled the table back so my wife could sit down. was not offered a predinner beverage. the tasting course was tasty but waiting 30 minutes between bites was a bit much. Especially when you are basically alone among 8 empty tables. Maybe try eating at the bar but not dinner again."
Dined on 4/2/2013
just a fabulous experience....the
quality of the food and service outstanding. had the 6 course tasting menu where the hamachi crudo was soft and delicious, the lamb slices wonderful and scallops juicy. our server was smiling all the time and talkative yet professional. chef william came out to say hello which was an added perk. room was cozy and soft just perfect for a romantic dinner for 2. only thing was how to take home left over wine since they decanter the whole bottle so any residual wine is just thrown out. still, great place to celebrate a special occasion."
Dined on 2/23/2013
We did the chef’s tasting menu
with wine pairing. It was exquisite! The ladies that waited on us were beyond perfect in both mannerism and knowledge of both the food they were presenting and the wine they were serving. Having the chef to come out and talk to us was a treat. The highlight was the bartender coming table side to make an unbelievable cocktail. This entire “experience” is not cheap…but will worth the money."
Dined on 2/19/2013
The food was very good, but the
tasting menu wine selection was way over priced and under delivered."
Dined on 2/14/2013
We had the 8-course meal and the
food was all excellent. Such an amazing blend of options, collaborations and tastes."
Dined on 2/2/2013
Some of the best food in the
NW-This section of the restaurant is designed for smaller portions of very local and fresh veggies,seafoods, oysters, duck and lamb. Be sure to tell them if you have any food aversions so they can accommodate your needs. It is a place to settle in for about 2 and half hours for a very nice evening."

I didn't think the food and
service were worth the cost. Our drinks took forever and the meal was not very well explained."
Dined on 11/9/2012
I wanted to like Mistral- I really
did. But the night was overall kind of a bust, unfortunately. We called in advance because we have dietary restrictions, but completely understand that dietary restrictions are a chef's worst nightmare, especially with a tasting menu. They assured us over the phone, when we arrived and when our waiter came to our table that it was no problem. Then, of the 6 course tasting menu, 3 courses had dairy (my restriction) and 1 had pork (my husband's). We didn't say anything then-- we just ate around it or traded plates, but in retrospect, I'm totally annoyed. The food was fine-- some was great, other dishes needed a little something (salt, au jus). The service was slow. The restaurant, expensive."

This was one of the most
personalized, incredibly delicious and special dining experience!"

Excellent, memorable dinner! Great
service! We picked the 4 course tasting menu and the 3 wine flight and could not have been happier with our selection. It is one of the finest meals we have ever head."

Excellent pacing of courses! A
delightful experience for our party of 5. It was quiet so conversation was easily heard. The wine pairings were the perfect choice for the courses"

Expert attentive service. Over the
top excellent food. Best in Seattle. William is a master chef."
Dined on 4/13/2012
A very enjoyable experience with a
unique menu. There isn't a menu per se; it's more of "what can you not eat in this list" and then they prepare a 4, 6, or 8 course meal just for you. Wine parings are available or you can select you own from a reasonably good wine list."
Dined on 4/7/2012
I felt like I was a lucky judge in
the final round of Top Chef. The scallop was amazing. The seared foie gras just melted in your mouth. 07 Joseph Phelps Insignia was amazing! Great wine list."
Dined on 3/17/2012
The food was so-so. Very friendly
waiter - excellent service. You should know that they show you a list of the special food available and allow you to opt out if you don't care for them. Then they serve you whatever they way. It's a good idea because it feels mysterious and exciting. However, they served us something I hate and there was no mention of it on the list. You don't get to choose what you eat so it's important that you know all the possibilities. Some of the garnishes were wilted. If there are foods on the list you like I would specify that you want them. They portray it as if they choose what is fresh for the day, but it feels more like they make up the menu based on what extra food they have. The desserts were amazing"

This was our first time dining at
the restaurant. I made the reservation months in advance based on Seattle Magazine naming it one of the Top 50 restaurants in Seattle. I must say we were not as thrilled with the experience as the editors at the magazine. As it was New Year's Eve the menu was an eight course dining experience. When we were seated (at 7pm) we were one of only two tables in the restaurant. Shortly after we sat down, two other two-tops were seated on either side of us...so it should follow that our three tables would be on the same schedule. But the timing of the evening was off (we were there for 3 1/2 hours). We sat for LONG periods between courses and we had to ask for the check. The food was just ok. We won't return."

Innovative food and excellent
service. We had a 6-menu course. Great place for special occasion."

A little bit too noisy. The old
mistral was much quieter."

Tremendous food, wine, and
service. Thoughtfully executed. Very romantic setting."
Dined on 11/1/2011
This restaurant aspires to a level
it hasn't achieved. E. g., there was a piece of shell in the oyster amuse bouche. There was also a piece of shell in the scallop dish. The braised short ribs were rather chewy and included bits of gristle. The waiter lacked polish (spilled wine on the tablecloth) and was clearly not well versed on the wines being served. For the price, not a good value. Try the casual side."
Dined on 10/28/2011
All time favorite. Food is always
cook to perfection and the dessert from the new pastry chef made the entire experience even better."

Awesome evening at the Chef's
table! I'll remember it forever."

Interesting, but well balanced
flavors. Good diversity with courses. Best rabbit I have ever had. Great decor. Modern and fresh without being cold. Friendly service. We liked the option of formal or more relaxed dining. Take home macaroons were a hit! Thank you."
Dined on 6/11/2011
service slow but I think that is
their plan as it is a tasting menu that is to be an entire evening event"
Dined on 4/2/2011
Course menu is like French dining
- expect to spend 3 hours+ enjoying delicacies that will tantilize your taste buds. Great wine selection to compliment the meal. The service is friendly but feels like they are still working the kinks out - the wait staff are not as knowlegable about the wine/food as one might expect at a high-end joint like this. If you go for the 8 course meal along with a bottle of wine - expect to drop $350 for 2. All in all - a great special occasion restaurant."
Dined on 3/12/2011
Had the Valentine's 7 course
tasting menu. I was there alone and was fortunate to be seated at the Chef's table. The menu was outstanding with interesting combinations of flavors. I really enjoyed it."
Dined on 2/14/2011
Very nice food, vastly overpriced
wine flight ($60 a person for a very small glass of sake, a tiny glass of a sparking wine and a small glass of red). Service was good to start but then really tailed off. At one point (on a 4 course tasting menu) we waited 50 minutes between courses and it was never clear who our waiter was as we kept having different faces trurn up. the final problem was as we left we went to the coat check to get our coats and the women at the desk told us she didn't know how it worked and to just "go get your own coats", not what one expects after a $290 meal."
Dined on 11/27/2010
Food was amazing, and it was fun
letting the chef create each course. Had a great time with the wait staff and the decor was beautiful. Definately perfect for that special occasion."
