I didn't think the food and service were worth the cost. Our drinks took forever and the meal was not very well explained.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

Tremendous food, wine, and service. Thoughtfully executed. Very romantic setting.

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.

All time favorite.

Food is always cook to perfection and the dessert from the new pastry chef made the entire experience even better.

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.

service slow but I think that is their plan as it is a tasting menu that is to be an entire evening event

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.
