Mistral has an innovative menu and well-thought out wine list. My wife and I shared a Bibb lettuce salad with avocado, bacon and blue cheese that was excellent. Both main courses, scallops for my wife and a Milanese pork dish for me exceeded expectations. We had an attentive waiter who took care of my second glass of wine in record time.

Very nice place fro a very good dinner. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return and recommend. I tend not to give 5 stars so 4 is very good.

We told the waiter as soon as we arrived that we had to leave early because we had theater tickets. He obviously did not care because our entrees were served just as we were ready to leave, they were really late and we did not have enough time to finish. Not sure if we will go back again.

Just wanted to say that I wanted to like this restaurant. But the food was mediocre as was the service and attitude. I had the classic brunch which consisted of scrambled eggs which were runny, bacon which was very fatty and needed to be cooked more, toast which arrived at the table with no condiment such as butter or jelly. The coffee was served without milk.
The experience was disappointing.

Love this place. Service on Sunday was slower than usual but the food and atmosphere more than made up for it.

We sat in the outside area which was perfect! They had the fire going and have fake fur pelts on the chairs. It has a great ambiance! Mistral is Always creative , always great food and service! We tried almost all of the snacks on the menu and we loved them all! We had only one or two apps and the crab pasta larger plates. Everything was delicious and the server was very attentive

Such an amazing restaurant! We went for the first time and absolutely loved everything. It's been a few days but I believe our server's name was Dylan and he was wonderful. The food was what I'd expect I'd I had paid triple the price, some of the best I've had in my life. We will absolutely be back

A delicious combination of courses; the pollo asado was great. I don't usually do desserts, but the pumpkin tart was a real treat.

Menu has been very carefully crafted to tailor to vegetarians, pescatarians and meat lovers. I was in a group where all had different likes and dislikes but everything we ordered was devoured and not one bite was left. Salmon Tartare and Burrata is a must have! Brown butter cake and key lime posset ended our night with a WOW! Can’t wait to visit again!

I was hesitant to try because the menu looked a bit eclectic for my picky husband. Turns out there were lots of choices and everything was delicious! We had Brussel sprouts, fried mozzarella, duck sausage and perogi, bib salad, pork Milanese and a pumpkin tart. Everything was absolutely delicious. Good drinks and wine list as well. We will be back!!

Food was great , nice portions, reasonably priced. I don’t understand why open table did not show any 5:30 seating! The place was almost empty at 5:30

We had a great lunch in the "outside" room, such a beautiful room. The fire wall kept us warm and added to the ambience. The food was delicious, as always, and as a gluten-free diner, I'm so happy to have the puffed rice crackers on the table.

Food was reliably good. The outside area was not as comfortable as we would have thought.
The service was not good. While the serve was reasonably friendly, he was simply going through the motions. Did not even acknowledge or credit us a drink my daughter did not like (he did after we called him out). But worst of all, I called ahead to do something special for my Wife’s birthday and they did nothing. Forgot, and ruined a special moment.

Over rated, over salted, overly filling. Craved a toothbrush and toothpaste to get rid of the saltiness, and a gym. Broccoli beignets? Masked the broccoli. Deviled eggs - insignificant. Fish dip with potato chips...the salty culprits. Scallops, good quality with too many condiments.

Great concept, eating by fire lovely. Food needs work.

From start to finish this was one of the nicest dining experiences that I have ever had! The food was as light as a feather yet extremely filling. The waitress was there when she needed to be and did an excellent job.

We had a 35 min wait even though we had a reservation and they didn’t focus to help us out even though tables were open. Our waiter was terrible. Food was excellent. Cool vibe.

We have a very good meal and loved the unique approach to some items, such as buratta and brussel sprouts. The scallop dish was vary tasty by very rich, generous serving of scallops but no need for the creamy rich sauce under each mollusk, but that's just my taste
