The food is unique and truly amazing!
This was my second time and will continue to come back. The server asked about food allergies which I have many. She asked the chef to go thru the menu and check al the items I could have. She went above and beyond. I really appreciated it.
Met up with a friend to catch up, nice ‘outdoor’ area allowed the breeze to come through. Food was excellent, mezcal cocktails were excellent, wait staff was very kind & helpful. Can’t wait to come back!
Best food I had in a while! Heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and it blew away my expectations.
The restaurant was extremely hot indoors. It felt like we were sitting outside with no air circulating.
The Food was really outstanding: crispy Bass and the pork schnitzel were really special. Nice atmosphere in the outside area and good value for the quality of food
We ate in the outdoor area which is covered and has big windows with a ceiling fan. It was very comfortable and the architecture was very nice. The food was great; we had the scallops and trout main courses and they were accompanied by very tasty sides. Our server was very attentive and the wine by the glass was a generous pour. We will definitely return.
They need to bring back their signature beignets back!
Wonderful cuisine and attentive service. The flavor combinations and pairings were terrific! Fun place to celebrate a birthday! Very noisy, so not good for quiet romance.
We arrived late but they still took our order even though the kitchen was closing for lunch
Excellent brunch. This place has not missed a beat. Dishes were creative, well-executed. Service was just right.
While the food was wonderful and exciting as usual, the service was on the other end of the spectrum tonight …. incredibly disappointing. Having a bartender wait tables (who lacked the training to be in that role and clearly didn’t want to be) and a manager who was unresponsive and inattentive to the needs of its patrons, these terribly overshadowed the great food coming out of the kitchen. Constantly having to ask for the basics such as utensils, clean plates, more water and plates to be cleared (we ended up stacking dirty ones) added to our plight. Although one of the plates was taken off the bill it didn’t come close to making up for the abysmal experience and certainly fell flat without an accompanying apology. Despite this night being out of character for Mistral, and we dine here quite often, think we’ll let a fair amount of time go by before our next visit. Definitely a poor showing for a local favorite.
The food was incredible! So many flavors in each dish. Our waiter was very helpful.
The ambience and food were great! Service was slow! However, I would recommend if you are in the Princeton area!
Ok apps . Entrees just off. Steak bavette tough way undercooked had to send it back which we seldom do. To servers credit he removed it from bill we tipped well.
Burrata tikki masala dish amazing. Deviled eggs too. Too many bones in trout dish
Another perfect meal at Mistral.
Best meal out I have had in Princeton for a very long time. Original menu and friend,y service.
Visiting Princeton to move our daughter in to her first apartment. It was a Celebratory dinner and did not disappoint. We tried a few snacks and small plates and each was unique, artistic and incredibly flavorful. We’re still thinking about it the next day and will definitely come back!
Excellent food and service - will definitely be back
Perfect Sunday Brunch! From beginning to end.
The service was excellent as well as the food.
More than good on all counts. Somewhat tight seating in a fairly open layout and a very noisy environment, so it isn't what I would call cozy or private; not a first date venue. That being said, I would certainly go again. Also note that I had brunch only, so no menu comments.
Cocktails were good though “classic cocktail” served in tall glass was weird
We ordered bottle of wine. Disappointed that they were out of it.
Trout was good but presentation was weird. It was served in a bowl.
I ordered the most expensive entree and it was underwhelming.
I left hungry and the bill for 3 people was over $200
Won’t be returning.
Mistral never disappoints! But today the hamachi did. Overdressed and way too sour. But otherwise a great experience as always!
Our party of four immensely enjoyed dining on snacks and small plates. We loved every dish, sending only empty plates back to the kitchen. Some of our party are vegetarian, and there were plenty of options, especially with the small plates. Servers were very attentive and friendly, refilling water regularly and swapping out our plates regularly. This was our first visit to Mistral since before the pandemic, and it is wonderful to see they have not lost their magic.
Overall the food was too salty especially the Brussel sprouts which were doused with soy sauce. Good cooking respects the flavor that is already inherent in the vegetables and seafood. Overall it seemed like the food was hiding behind sauces. More balance of flavor is needed. I think the chef needs to take a step back and refresh.
Then noise level is the kitchen is unacceptaby high. The menu was limited. The service, however, was very good.
The second time trying this restaurant was not as pleasant as the first time - definitely declined. Maybe it was just an off night, but our meal was very disappointing.
Always a great meal and experience at Mistral. It was our first time doing Brunch and it did not disappoint. The steak for the Steak & Eggs meal was cooked perfectly and so flavorful. As always, the Brussel Sprouts are to die for!
Delicious food, knowledgeable and super kind staff, beautiful outdoor decor
My husband and I have been here a few times pre-covid and thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. Our most recent visit was exceptionally wonderful. While I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for small children (intimate ambiance), we broke our own rules and brought our 10-month-old to be the third wheel of an early date night.
First, I love the outdoor area under a tent- complete with outdoor rugs, and beautiful planters.
Our server, Olivia, was prompt, friendly, and engaging - not only with us but our son as well. As a parent of a young child, I especially appreciated her awareness to set plates, glasses of water, food, our drinks, etc out of the baby's reach.
Food was delicious as always. We had the kimchi (a perfect balance of spicy and sour), smoked fish dip (salty but delicious); I had the trout as an entree (I was amazed by the perfect crisp of the skin and the delicate flakes of the fish), and my husband had the Wagyu beef. He always asks for Pittsburgh rare - which isn't often done correctly, however, the chef nailed it here!
Yes, it's a little more expensive here, however, absolutely worth it.
Food was delicious and server was efficient and courteous.
Ambience was good , appetizers were good but the main course was average….there are other seafood restaurants in the area that provide great food
Food and ambiance was delicious
Nice evening. Service could use more training. When advised server of food sensitivities, was told that there would be nothing on menu for me.
This was my first visit to Mistral and we dined outside. The service was good and the food was much better than expected. I can't exactly describe the cuisine which was in part vaguely oriental but really delicious.
Each dish was perfection! Fresh, inventive, memorable.
Mistral never disappoints! This is where me and my husband always go for date night. Their seasonal menus, great service and delicious food keep us coming back.
There is no better restaurant in Princeton! The chef's imagination & skill are stunning, particularly in the starters & small plates.
Wonderful service, great drinks, amazing food, beautiful ambiance. What's not to love?
Ambiance/service was great. The brussels sprouts were overloaded with the fermented black beans so the ratio could be adjusted to reduce the saltiness. Pork schnitzel was nice and crispy and the sauce complimented it nicely. A bit over priced overall but I think the experience was worth it.
