Went for a midweek business meeting with 5 other people. Overall it was one of the better locations we have experienced for similar meetings. Moderate noise, but we could actually have a conversation and not be shouting...better than average acoustics. Also, easy parking, reasonably sized bar for waiting, and overall a good experience.
Steak and lobster was perfect!
Always a great experience at Mistral’s
Went for Valentine's Day & we had a great experience.
Mistral is an excellent restaurant located in Redwood Shores area off Hwy 101. Food is tasty and served at the perfect temperature, especially the Sea Scallops. Great for a business lunch with indoor and outdoor seating.
Amazing service and food! Above and beyond attention for our group! I recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
It was nice and service was great!
Left broke and underwhelmed. My husband and I had two glasses of wine, two appetizers and two cups of soup and it was $136 including tax. The French onion soup wasn't good and the ahi appetizer was tasteless . The smoked salmon appetizer was good tho. I had ordered the blood orange crush, a signature cocktail but sent it back because it was awful. The server only came around every 15 minutes and it was a slow Monday evening, so I don't understand why he wasn't overly attentive. Overall very disappointed and probably won't go again.
Definitely returning to their former glory. Since getting the smoker, the specials have been outstanding. Great the return to an old friend.
All of our food was really tasteless and we left it. We had been there previously and it was delicious. .maybe a new chef??
Despite checking in at host stand, and 20 feet away at the bar, we were forgotten, then marked as a "no show" and thus very slow to get seated. Food was not up to prior Mistral standards. Service suggested that they were quite understaffed. Lunch there is the safer choice.
Scallops were overcooked (staff brought out new order). The salmon burger was breaded and devoid of any salmon flavor. Bun overtook most of the burger. Only winning part of the meal were the fries
The place was packed with large groups, making it very noisy and hard to carry on a conversation. We would have chosen an alternative date had we known so many business groups would be there.
This is still a little hidden gem for very nice dining and fortunately it’s not in the mainstream area so we are able to come here last minute and still get a large table.
The service is always excellent here and they definitely strive to accommodate. The food is usually very good.
I just feel the prices are a bit higher than they should be.
With that said we will continue to come here and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere right on the water.
Best place ever.
Always terrific. Seems to get even better each year. My favorite place to have a good time.
My go to for business meetings. Food and service are wonderful and ambience is fantastic for all occasions.
Not as great as usually expect of this spot, which is generally my go to in Redwood City area.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch. Decided to sit in the main dining room instead of the covered patio. Attentive server. Delicious burger and fries. We were able to carry on a good conversation without a high noise level, which we really appreciate. (Some restaurants nowadays are built for noise).
- out of the beet salad - not good - should have been warned before ordering
It was good , however a waiter should know the soup of the day, then when he finds that out why would he not of asked about the fish of day no he has to go back again. Ok so no big deal we order finally and crap he comes back to teell us they are out of 4 different dishes, it’s only 6:30 for gosh sacks. What we we’re finally allowed to eat was great.
But the manager had better step up his or her game or this place will be in trouble soon.
I had a terrific lunch catching up with an old colleague at mistral last week. We both enjoyed the two different seafood specials of the day. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked I thought the service was quite attentive and enjoy this restaurant quite a bit
Have been going to Mistrals for many many years. This time I ordered the pork chop and it was very dry. will not order it again. Also the paella was taken off the menu which was myf avorite.
Overall very good rating. Only comment is ... I requested table by fireplace via OpenTable. But, restaurant didn’t even recognize the request or say whether it could be accommodated. I did not say anything, but the space was available for a small group of our size. It’s a simple thing and experience was still good. I’d like a restaurant to just recognize a guest’s request.
Slow service, incorrect order delivered
A consistent pleasant dining experience with great food, reasonable wine selection, nice ambience and good service.
Staff is the best. Off the path quiet place by the water. Very cozy for the family.
Good service...enjoyed crab cakes and ceased salad
I don't usually take the time to write a review, but I just had to comment as the wait staff was so friendly and helpful (without being obtrusive) that I wanted to point that out. Also, the service was prompt; no long waits to order, get food, check etc. And the noise level on the patio was great - very easy to have a business discussion between the 4 of us in attendance. The only suggestion would be to be a little more explicit on the menu. For example, a colleague's dish said it came with artichoke hearts, but she didn't know they would be deep-fried and would have asked for them not to be. My fish was a tiny bit dry, but overall very good. I probably would have given an overall rating of 4, but the service kicked it up to a 5!
Always a great experience coming to Mistrals! The service was great, the decor was very nice and inviting, the food delicious and already can't wait to go back.
