We were blown away by the attention to detail and the overall care we were given on a Saturday night. My guests and I felt as though we were the only guests in the restaurant that night. They let us Sabre champagne. The Chef came out to spend time with us and his food is not the only thing that is charming and hot! Will definitely come back for more when we are in Seattle next.
First time to this restaurant. Everything was solid. We shared three small plates, all of which were terrific. Four separate entrees (arctic char, scallops, pork chop and scallops again) were all outstanding (mine was pork chop---easy to mess up; they most certainly nailed it).
Very nice wine selection with a reasonable (by restaurant standards) markup of about 2x. They need to be careful to advertise the actual vintage they have available.
It would be nice to have a couple additional, more vegetarian-ish entrees available, but that's just a minor suggestion. The food was outstanding.
Portion size is far too small for the money. A modest lunch for two was $80.
Choices!!! Turn left at the reception desk and you can enter a casual fine dining atmosphere with tablecloths and a serene atmosphere - which is for perfect for small groups but also permits opportunities for group seating.
Or you can remain in the fabulous Happy Hour scene which calms down following the after work crowd to allow a more casual dining experience. Regardless of your choice of location, the food is suberb, the service is immaculate, and the atmosphere tingles with a wonderful vibe.
Best food ever
We had the 8 courses. Chef William came out and chatted with us in the beginning and throughout a truly fabulous meal. Portions were small, but we felt satisfied. If you're a bit adventurous, this is the place for you. Let him drive!
And the service was terrific. We are going back for sure!
A delightful new discovery for us! We’ll definitely be a frequent customer as the service was impeccable, the menu selection awesome, and the atmosphere was refreshingly cozy in a large space. Our dinners were the perfect combination of artful touches and superb tastes. Thank you all for a wonderful experience. We look forward to visiting again soon.
Went for a business meal and everything we ordered was lovely and well presented. Between the 5 of us we shared the cheese plate, charcuterie and olives, all of which were great. For entrees we had a variety of the scallops and pork chops, which were all fabulous. And for dessert, the peaches were amazing. The service, however, was subpar and not what you expect with the cuisine or pricing. Our waitress took excessive time bring drinks, following up on small requests and was sloppy poor wine at the table. She also forgot to charge us for a bottle of wine and called and left me voicemails post-meal to say that the credit card we used to pay would be charged.... a conversation I then had to relay to my boss who paid for the meal. Poor form.
Great food. Incredibly nice people. We arrived late to our 10pn reservation! They welcomed us and did not rush us a bit.
Great meal with friends. Thoughtful menu with really nice food. Dinner was a little slow but everything was very nice from appetizers to dessert and don't have any complaints.
Great place with a modern ambience that mixes industrial elements & old world charm.
Was a very quiet Friday, but the food and wine was great
Our group did the chef's tasting menu with 6 plates, plus the wine pairing. Every item was delicious, beautifully presented, and well paired.
I had great service. My date was extra late and had allergies, and wasn't feeling up to eating.
Service was the right amount of checking on me while I was waiting and after my date arrived.
Only I ate, and it was just an appetizer. I've been before, food has been well prepared and tasty.
Amazing food and service. A real gem. Michael is an imaginative chef and a wonderful host. Will be back
Best restaurant in south Lake union make sure to say hi to the chef" William " one of the best and most positive guys you can meet in seattle.
Was visiting Seattle and I love tasting menus. I researched and found this little gem on a recommended list of tasting menus that was close to my hotel. Although a little pricey I went for the Chef's Tasting Menu (which you have to sit at the bar for) which included 8 food courses and 1 cocktail course. I was definitely not disappointed, all of the courses were fantastic! Each course was perfectly timed and the chef asked my preferences before we began which is great for a tasting menu, many times your only choice is to have whatever they prepare whether you like it or not. The 2 main courses were a little larger than I expected for a tasting menu so I was extremely full at the end but the quality of the food and the professionalism of the chef and staff was impeccable. Would definitely recommend for travelers or locals. Thank you for a lovely evening. Amy Bishop, Lexington, Ky
We arrived on a Sunday night and was amazed that the resyaurant was empty. I guess it is busier during the week. Food was good, but limited choices.
Staff was extremely attentive and responsive to our food allergies and able to modify everything from appetizers to dessert to fit our needs. Every dish was a work of art and delicious.
This was our first trip to Mistral since returning to the PNW and it definitely won't be our last!
We chose the six course tasting menu and had the most amazon dinner! I highly recommend the food and restaurant.
