    Wonderful experience - pricey, but the food was cooked to perfection (seared foie gras, duck and more). Friendly, very attentive staff - a great place to go for a special celebration.

    Great first time experience. Service was prompt & attentive. Great wine list and the wait staff really knew their food/ prep/ ingredients/ pairings (RARE these days). We enjoyed the mussels, crab ravioli, dover sole and duck (the risotto with the duck requires a special shout out). My only regret is that we ate so much we didn't have room for dessert. 100% recommend and will go back.

    Really delightful. Ate lots of delicious bread! Great ambience where anyone feels welcome in a wide range of situations. Pizza is an interesting grilled pizza. Not what I would opt for on menu. Foie gras was good — artful and great balance with the duck. All the sauces were delectable and made you want to keep dipping bread. Fish was broken on plating and veal slightly overdone, but we were stuffed, satisfied, and sadly unable to order dessert. Great drinks but expensive and filling. Wait staff was amazing. Girls didn’t eat much but the cheese off their pizza and very kind to wrap it up and make sure everything was saved. I know they’ll be late night snacking or eating it on the plane tomorrow, and I appreciate that care. Very much recommend you visit!

    Definitely among the best restaurants in Boston. Foie Grass Terrine and Carpaccio were outstanding. The Duck was excellent. The seating height relative to the table in the lounge area is awkward. It's generally pricy, but the markup for the wines in particular is a bit too aggressive. Still, for us it's among the very best restaurants in Boston.

    Overall, I enjoyed my time at Mistral. Just a few things that bothered me: They have many workers but the suit wearers seem to do little but push chairs in. Unlike most upscale restaurants, they do not fold your napkin when you step away from the table. The food also seemed dated and average quality. foie was veiny and fatty and the duck was also super fatty and we were unable to eat most of it. Their special dessert was also cloyingly sweet and tasted artificial.

    Mistral was absolutely perfect. I took my now fiancée here for our engagement dinner. I left a simple note to the restaurant indicating the events significance and they absolutely went above and beyond for the occasion. Entirely unprompted, from two glasses of champagne when we sat down, to countless congratulations, to the lovely message written on our desert plate. They knocked it out of the park. I had the fillet and my fiancée had the pasta. Easily the best dining experience I’ve had in the city this far. The constant praise this place gets is no surprise at all.

    We've heard about Mistral over so many years, but never actually been. It's discreetly tucked away between the South End and Back Bay, and we just hadn't taken note of it. We were very pleased to have made the discovery. The atmosphere is an oasis of calm, tables are pleasantly separated from each other, service is very friendly and the food was excellent.

    This restaurant was very beautiful. Our waiter was excellent and attentive. We ordered Caesar and carpaccio for appetizers. We both had the filet. It was a beautiful presentation and equally delicious. The wines were overpriced but we knew that going into the meal. It was a treat … not something we’d do each week.

    Terrific food. Great service. Very noisy. Hard to hear one speak at the table. Very expensive. Wine list is 2x to 4x mark-up from retail. The wine mark-up also increases with the quality of the wine (some were 6x). Would go back for the food and service, on special occasions only due to expense and noise.

    Melissa was outstanding as a waitress. She made the evening. It’s extremely hard to find good food and service nowadays. Slight miss on their end for dessert but management comped cappuccinos and the desert, which was the right thing to do. Drinks were great, app was great and the entrees were on point. Did notate in the booking that it was an anniversary and to go back to the desert, no message was on the plate. Again, a small let down but a pleasant server made it less disappointing. Mistakes happen but when address property they aren’t as hard to accept. The hostess was pleasant and friendly and management came by twice during the evening to check-in. Always a great experience here and will continue to return. One more shout out to Melissa! She was fantastic!!

    Loved eating at this restaurant! Im french and just miss local food, it was refreshing to eat some escargot, I just love the chic and the gastronomic menu. Everything was delicious! From the bread and butter(warm😀) to the dessert( for the occasion we shared a crème brûlée) excellent!!! The decor is perfect for a romantic diner. Very impressive place!
