Another incredible meal with exceptional service. Coast-to-coast Mistral is consistently one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. Every plate perfectly prepared. This last visit I discovered that there actually is a perfect omelette, and of course Mistral makes it.
The food was served cold so it did not taste good
I asked for bread so I was charged for that
Server wanted us out ASAP kept asking if we needed the check
Food was great! Bit literally as we sat down we were warned the kitchen was closing in 10 mins and felt rushed. Why have reservation slots available with such a tight window? Not ideal. Rest was great as always.
Will not be returning to Mistral. The service was awful, the food was salty and overpriced. Ordered a martini and it was so poorly made, I could not drink it. One of the servers dropped a glass and it smashed all over the floor and ended up underneath our table. He never came over to clean it up, we had to flag someone down to let them know. To top it all off, as soon as I walked out of the restaurant I had to run back into the because I got sick. Save your money and time and go elsewhere.
Mistral is Princeton’s most adventurous dining. I always appreciate what Scott Anderson does to the Local food scene.
Great selection of food and good service. Everything is farm to table fresh.
Excellent, creative food and polite attentive service.
This is our go to restaurant when we don’t feel like cooking.
I would recommend Mistral to everyone - it's wonderful!
Andre was the best waiter! Very personable and accommodating. He made great recommendations and made our experience wonderful. To boot, the food was absolutely delicious.
Fantastic experience! Amazing food, great service and super attentive. Ended up being a wonderful brunch date.
Absolutely loved it!
Great fancy plates but casual restaurant. Awesome decor and great vibes!
Excellent restaurant. Food was outstanding. We will be back!!!
As usual, the flavor profiles were superb--complex but not fussy, with really creative and imaginative dishes that we don't see anywhere else. We were able to sit in the "outdoor room" which meant we were away from the street but benefited from fresh air. Well done all around.
Their food is great but main dish portion was like an appetizers portion.
Other wise overall experience was good.
First time brunch customers and will be back! The brunch burger and french toast were high quality and cooked perfectly.
A very elegant venue with great service and food. The outdoor dining is right on the street, so this makes it a little noisy. Also would love more vegetarian options on the menu.
Wonderful food and drinks! Great service. Beautiful environs.
Poor wait service. Probably due to lack of wait staff.
Superb dining experience. Michael, our server, made spectacular suggestions (great call on the oysters), and provided excellent service. The tandoori mackerel with lentils was one of the best dishes I’ve had before; what a revelation.
The server was extremely rude. When I asked about table side preparation of the whole black bass, she said, “it has a head, a tail, and a bunch of bones, so no.” The rest of our meal (shishito peppers, mussels escabeche, diver scallops, and mackerel) was both overpriced and uninspiring. The mackerel was particularly awful. The entire experience was rushed; we were in and out in 55 minutes, and were never even given a basket of bread. I will never return.
Food and service is always outstanding! Christian is a charm and such an amazing waiter. Compliments to the kitchen staff and chefs on such great preparation, presentation and taste. Highly recommended!!
We love dining at Mistral...small plates make for lots of wonderful tastes and the cocktials are always primo. The bill adds up quickly...but worth it.
Outstanding waiter. He was always one step ahead of our needs
Great twist on flavors .to start had : Oysters very refreshing, smoked fish dip & chips pleasantly excellent, & deviled egg super with surprise crunch. Lunch choices didn’t disappoint & enjoyed the not so predictable choices . Our waiter was very knowledgeable & made the experience even better. Highly recommend . Will be back for sure !
This place is a must. The food was sublime. We started with the hamachi ceviche and mussels escabeche with fresh chips. The mussels in particular are divine. They were bursting with flavor … a true delight. For the entree we had the seared diver scallops with charred corn and sorrel crema and the grilled bavette steak with au poivre sauce and trumpet mushrooms. Both were fantastic and perfectly cooked.. Our waiter, Kyle, was both friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our meal outside under the lighted canopy in the heart of Princeton.
The food was excellent, as was the presentation on the plate. The portions were smaller than expected, though the salad was an exception to that…..we all 3 shared my salad! We were seated by the kitchen / former bar area and it was super loud. Kind of entertaining, but just wasn’t quite the upscale vibe I was looking for. The other parts of the dining space looked more inviting.
I really love the many different options, including an excellent mushroom omelette. The dressed oysters were very good as well as the Bloody Mary. Our server was outstanding and was a good sport when we told her she looked like the actor Anna Kendrick. We’ll definitely be returning very soon.
Different and unusual selections. One of the most interesting menus in Princeton.
The creativity expressed by Mistral's chefs is way beyond impressive. Also, the flavors are always maximized. And you can order any dish on the menu and be assured it will deliver on both counts. Service is excellent. What a wonderful restaurant!
The patio was open and had a big fan which was good in terms of Covid precautions. It wasn’t very aesthetically pleasing though. The service was very good and attentive. The food was ok. Everyone says this place is great but every dish was incredibly salty and it feels like they’re trying to hard. We ordered oysters and you couldn’t taste them at all because of all the stuff they put on them. The scallops were good. The mackerel was good but also very salty. Overall it was fine but I don’t see what everyone is raving about.
The food at Mistral remains excellent. However, compared to the past (say, two years ago, before the pandemic), there was a slight decrease in quality of service: the food choices seem narrower than before and the small plate we shared as an appetizer (a fried burrata) was noticeably less warm than it should.
Got seated on time for our dinner reservation at 8:15pm. It took 15 minutes for any server to come and get our order. Another 45 minutes for our order to arrive. We're no longer hungry after an hour of waiting. Then, the server asked if we wanted dessert? No, thank you, we cannot wait another hour for our dessert LOL
One starter was over cooked and another was way too salty. Time to receive between starters and entrees took almost 30 minutes.
Mistral was one of the best brunches that we’ve ever had, and I’d highly recommend. Everything was very fresh and delicious!
Excellent attentive service. Sat at our table promptly, food was delicious and well portioned.
Everything was absolutely perfect! Outstanding service and the food and drinks were delish!! Thank you for a phenomenal birthday outing for our dear friend!
Food is always delicious - it was busy noisy and hot - service was fair - but we understand it is a difficult time for staffing right now
