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.
Mistral is absolutely on point. All aspects of the food and service exceeded expectations. I've worked in fine dining in NYC for ten years and I'd say to the Mistral team, hats off. You're executing everything at a world class level. Thanks for your excellence.
Our server Mike was awesome, very attentive! The food was great as well.
One of the best places in town for sure. Service was a little slow although it’s usually good. The kanpachi was really nice, the beef tartare was way too salty (you really could not taste the beef at all), the spicy shrimp ramen was fantastic.
Great night and great food. Will recommend to others
We ate outdoors, for Saturday brunch. Menu was fun, service and food were good, but I have one complaint. We started with drinks, then oysters, and my husband had the croque Madame, while I had the beef carpaccio. I asked for bread with the carpaccio, and the waiter tried to upswell us with a la carte bread. Really?
Perfect place for romantic dinner or dinner with friends
Some spectacular dishes here, especially the Crispy Taleggio Cheese appetizer and the Seared Diver Scallops. Drinks are a little on the high side on price, and it's not the easiest place in the world to have a conversation. Desserts are also fantastic (chocolate hazelnut torte was my favorite). Memorable but pricy.
I've dined at Mistral 3 or 4 times and always enjoyed the experience. My most recent trip was as good if not better than the previous one. We had several of the starters and small plates and each one was good; I would order them again. They also are different. I thought the prices were good, especially for Princeton. It's a noisy and "close" dining room, which I knew to be the case before.
Great atmosphere with very unique dishes that are delicious!
Especially loved the creative and delicious food, I’m always impressed and never disappointed at Mistral. One of the best cocktails in recent memory, and excellent service. Already planning to make another reservation and
Soooooo good. Great food, flavors, portion sizes. Best restaurant in Princeton
Food was spectacular - well balanced with great flavors. The Hamachi Crudo was a fantastic small dish and is a must have! Aside from the amazing food, I only wish I was not seated right by the kitchen. The table also faced in front of the enytance/exit to the outdoor portion. While the view was nice, it was distracting with the foot traffic from staff moving from indoor room to outdoor room and kitchen to room from behind me. Overall, highly recommended!
Came here with friends for my wife’s birthday. The first time we’ve eaten at a restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic. Food was awesome as usual, and our waitre
Food was exceptional as always. Waiter was often MIA. too long to take our drink order and then never asked us if we wanted additional drinks when entrees arrived (all our glasses were empty!). To his credit, when we asked he did move a screen to help cut the cold damp wind blowing into the patio, but other than that, he seemed disinterested.
Now that the world is opening up from COVID, Mistral needs to figure out how to keep folks right at the patio entrance warm on cold damp nights. The heaters certainly help, but my back was ice cold and food gets cold more quickly, too.
Amazing food for our anniversary!
Great menu as always! Everything delicious and the service ridiculously speedy! Which worked for us last night!
The food and service is always great here. Love the indoor seating under the tree :)
The small plates were all very good to great (quail eggs, burrata & kulcha, kimchi). The main course was less than great. Ramen was very ordinary, the trout although good was an extra small portion, the whole bass was also good (but pricy as it was closer to a standard Thai restaurant offering than an upscale American one).
A qualified recommendation.
This has become our favorite place to eat in Princeton. The menu is excitingly eclectic while having something for everyone -- everything is imbued with flavor --salud to the chefs! The presentation of the dishes is as carefully curated as the menu itself, and the wait staff is friendly and attentive without being cloying. Can't wait to go back.
The level of talent of the chefs and cooking staff are amazing! They combine the most interesting ingredients and flavors to create unique and delicious dishes! It is a true foodie heaven! I also the love the decor and spaces for dining. It’s 5 star on all levels!!
We enjoyed this place. Nice ambiance, staff were very efficient and the food was very good. The steak was particularly good, oysters were excellent as was the fish dip. If I have a criticism, it would be that the scallops dish had a lot of ‘crunchy bits’ and they completely ruined the dish for me. I don’t know why they thought it necessary to drown the dish in them, and I’d implore them to lose them completely. But, overall, this was a nice evening and we would go there again.
Great food, everything was prepared perfectly. Be prepared for a big bill.
Food is very creative and we come here often. However, this time everything had a bit too much salt.
Also, the whole bass entree was just ok. Would not recommend.
Amazing food. Hands down best in town. Have never had a bad meal.
Mistral was awesome as usual. Great place for crafted cocktails and adventerous small plates...love it! Be careful though, all thgat tasting and sipping adds up...
Fantastic food and service! Very comfortable and spaced out outdoor seating.
Joe Mooney is the best chef in New Jersey. Everything he touches turns to culinary gold. The staff is great as well.
