We were at the Loews hotel for a meeting and so the first night it was easy to go to Mistral. THe host greeted us and we had a lovely conversation with him as he seated us by a window.
The menu is short but the food is very good. I had scallops with bok choy and mushrooms with dabs of possibly sweet potato on the plate. Succulent and delicious. My husband had the duck which he said was "fine" (finicky duck person ! ) We did not have dessert . I had a lovely glass of Lyric by Etude Pinot - smooth and fruity. A very enjoyable evening. Our second night we decided to return as we did not want to drive into Coronado . Continued our conversation with
our host who greeted us like old friends this time. We both had Wag yu tri tip which was served
with green beans and found it tender and tasty. I had a glass of Orfila Benign Neglect Syrah which was a good choice with the beef. This is a local vineyard I had not heard of. Tonight we had dessert. Raspberry cheesecake for me with raspberry sorbet, my husband had his usual vanilla icecream. Cheesecake was light and creamy and just the perfect size portion after all the meat. Two good dinners. Would return if ever in the hotel again.

Plan was to go to this restaurant while staying at the Loew's Resort for New Year's Eve celebration. Big mistake. Made reservation for 6 and called twice to confirm. Show up at restaurant and the woman at the front says the reservation is for 6 - at the bar. Strike One. She agrees that doesn't make sense and gets us a table - for 10 - immediately next to the musician. Table is not even set. Strike Two. We say no, they bring us to another table for six, but there are only 5 chairs. Staff does nothing, so we pull our sixth chair to the table. Strike Three. Waiter finally shows up and hands us a "menu" which is a fixed menu of nothing but vegetarian selections. The website for the restaurant said NOTHING about a fixed menu and we had planned to order off the menu. Strike Four. We are then given the "regular" "fixed" menu with 2 entrees to choose from, both wholly unimpressive. Oh, and everyone at the table had to get either the 3 course or 5 course, no exceptions. What a joke. Strike Five and we walked out. Will never go there again.

Went there for Christmas with parents and boyfriend. Didn't know it was a prefix menu but the menu had enough to offer. The food is very good, and they accommodated special diets. The service was good. Expensive though... But would go back for sure.

Has Christmas evening "fixed dinner". Within an hour of arriving back to our hotel, we were both sick. It was either the salad or the soup.
Our main waiter did a pretty good job of checking on other tables around us, and for the most part ignoring us. The rest of the serving staff was very good.
I resent having a mandatory 18% gratuity added to the check when one of the servers deserved a lot less, and getting sick later didn't help me feel better about the 18%.

The dinner was good, but a bit over priced. Several of the menu items were not available, so selection was pretty thin. We have enjoyed it more in the past, but there are so many options it's not worth the drive unless you are staying at Loews.

I thought it was overpriced. I left hungry! If I ever go back to loews it might be the buffet. Not impressed at all.

We are at the restaurant since we were staying at the hotel for our 35th Anniversary. The service was very slow. Waiter never came back to check our drinks or ask how the food was. They were quite busy tho with a couple of larger groups. A different person brought out our meals. I ordered Wagyu steak, most expensive item on the dinner menu. The steak was served already cut into eight tiny square pieces on a skimpy amount (about 3 teaspoons) of watery mashed potatoes. It was more like a gravy than a side dish. For $45.00 I expected a better presentation with better portions, especially the mash potatoes.

I was also surprised with the lack of seafood items on the menu. Being that the restaurant is located on the waterfront in San Diego.

I would not recommend this place to a friend.

Great view of Coronado, San Diego Bay, the sunset, and San Diego City skyline. We dined on a Sunday at 5:00 pm and had the restaurant to ourselves. They really provided great service and the food was outstanding. A lit bit pricey but that is to be expected for this type of up-scale restaurant in a resort and with the great view. Worthy of that special night out.

Food and service were excellent. Fantastic view of the bay outside of the Loews hotel in Coronado.
Guinea Fowl: very tasty. White meat was much better than the dark meat.
Grilled Salmon: Cooked perfectly, to my husband's "doneness" specifications. Green sauce complemented it perfectly.
Salads were perfectly dressed, everything was very fresh, portions were just right.
"Cherry" tart: very tasty. But actually it is a flaky almond tart with a couple of cherries thrown in.
Only complaint: Watch where you sit. We had to move our table because the setting sun got in my eyes.
Coffee: very good.

It's been ~20 years since the last time I visited the restaurant with my fiancee (now wife). This time we are visiting with our 2 kids and tried to impress them with the bay/ocean view but didn't, particularly since there were no updates to their decor. Food was still good. A great family restaurant but not a fancy meal.
