    Service was perfect. Ana was attentive and did not rush us in anyway. The owner, Eric, wanted to make sure that everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. It was easy to tell hat only fresh high quality ingredients were used. The atmosphere of the bistro makes you feel as if you are in Paris. We definitely look forward to coming back again and will try to return on a night when they have music.

    Had the Beef Brisket and it was so good. The gravy not salty nor was the beef. The coffee was excellent as always and my friends had the Croque Madame and the Salmon Benedict and they loved it. The food is really, really superb and I always bring my friends to Le Mistral for a great meal.

    The croque madam and it was EXCELLENT and the green salad was delicious as well (you can have fries which are also good, but opted out of that choice, had too many fried items lately). The sandwich was toasted perfectly and the Sunnyside egg was cooked perfectly as well. The meal was so satisfying and filling, I didn't have dinner. The coffee was excellent, usually drink 3 cups, put Le Mistral's coffee blend is strong and very smooth and only need to drink one cup! The wait staff was attentive and very nice. The new keyboard musician played a variety of music from Jazz to standards. The price for the meal was work every cent, the food quality was top notch. I highly recommend this Bistro for anyone wanting to eat out, can't wait till my next visit.

    The food wasn’t as good as the first couple of times we were here, and they were very inflexible with the menu (we wanted a few berries on a crepe, and to do so had to buy an entire side for $12). We also paid $6 per cup of coffee (including refills). May try to give it one more shot, but we were disappointed.

    Superb! Made my 5 year anniversary unforgettable. The owner says that he wants to treat everyone like family and he really does. I booked this as a special evening for my 5 year anniversary. Open Table messed it up a little bit so the owner did everything possible to make it an unforgettable night. The food is excellent. I have never had steak cooked so well.

    Had a great outdoor brunch experience here over the weekend with a friend. We split a yummy vegie omelette and some superior french toast. The service was excellent and we wound up staying much longer than expected.

    Terrible experience. Made a reservation with open table, provided my phone number and email address. When came to the restaurant it was closed due to some maintenance. Person who great us at the place knew about my reservation but was so ignorant and did not call or emailed about the place being closed. I end up spending 40 min in traffic to get there for nothing and thereafter looking for a new place to eat. Terrible service!

    A lovely place. seemed a little overwhelmed by volume of diners on MothersDay - dishes ran out and food was over cooked. Service was pleasant but frazzled and a little slow. We really liked the place and figure on a less busy night it would have lived up to its promise. Will try again I think.

    Food was excellent but definitely overpriced for the neighborhood. Music was way too loud until the restaurant filled up helping to diffuse the sound. Prices were much higher than what was listed in open table where a veal chop was listed at $40 but was $60 on the menu at the restaurant. Even though the food was excellent not sure I would go again since there are other places in the neighborhood just as good and more reasonably priced

    Café Le MistralResponded on April 10, 2022Thank you for your review. We apologize for the confusion about the price of your dinner selection; OpenTable lists Paillard de Veau $40, you are a referring to a different dish, Côte de Veau aux Morilles $60. We use only the top quality ingredients from world renowned suppliers; with higher quality ingredients come higher prices. If you feel we are overpriced there are other restaurants in our area, but you will not find the same quality, decades of experience, and excellence in service.

    Truly outstanding food. We had chicken, steak, fish, duck and salad and everything was totally delicious and beautifully presented. Unfortunately, the wine is considerably overpriced, i.e. the cost/quality ratio is not what it should be due to excessive markups. There was a couple presenting really fabulous, live, classic Brazilian jazz in the corner. I note, however, that the room is acoustically "live" and the music plus ambient noise meant that we could not enjoy the sort of quiet conversation that - at least for me - is what I want with such wonderful food. On a night with no live music, it could be different.

    Food and service were excellent. Pricey, but they deliver a high end product that justifies it (unlike some other pricey places in the neighborhood). Only complaint is that the Saturday night live music was too loud for dinner.

    La comida es excelente. El servicio impecable. Primera clase. El lugar, encantador. Volveremos sin duda. Un detalle circunstancial: hay música en vivo, también de primera, pero fue para nosotros un ligero impedimento, sólo porque alguien en nuestro grupo tiene problemas de audición. Recomiendo yo, y mis acompañantes, este delicioso rincón francés en Brooklyn. Les agradezco, además, su amabilidad elegante

    Absolutely fabulous dining experience from start to finish. The atmosphere was lovely on a Saturday night, with a jazz singer and bossa nova guitarist proving background music that perfectly suited the room. Food was excellent with generous portions of appetizers (one order of octopus served four). Service was top notch. A neighborhood gem well worth the trip from father afield. I will be back!
