The design of Mistral is both elegant and casual, resonating with the ambiance of Provence as arched floor to ceiling windows drench the room with light.
Mistral’s dramatic dining room serves dinner nightly and Sunday Brunch. In our bar and comfortable lounge area we also offer craft cocktails and fine wines to compliment Chef Mammano’s menu.
Mistral’s private dining room, Le Salon du Mistral, accommodates 60 seated and up to 80 guests for a reception.

We had a smooth and seamless dinner from reservation to final payment. For a restaurant that has been operating for about 22 years, we were impressed by its capacity to maintain a high level of quality for more than two decades. The food was excellent-flavorful and fresh. There is a great wine list although it is pricey. It was moderately loud in the dining room so conversation was challenging but nevertheless manageable. All in all a superior dining experience.

Our server was fine, however the too had too many seats and it was difficult for them to maneuver around the tables. Also, the noise level was deafening

For a superb French dinner in Boston, it is hard to beat Mistral. Excellent service and beautifully prepared and tasty food. What more can you ask for?

This used to be my favorite restaurant. The food was spectacular. I always order the tuna tartar and this time it was soggy and tasteless. My husbands duck was tough and the risotto was flat and no flavor. I had the pizza with steak and mashed potatoes....it was hard and dry. The meat was tough and stringy and they only drizzled truffle oil on top, with no real shaved truffles...flat and dry. The bread was so hard, it left scratches on the roof of my mouth....this is not the Mistral of 10 yrs ago. However, the two waiters we had were attentive and super nice. They asked us and made sure we had everything we needed. They were both super friendly and the girls who were hostess, were also very nice and attentive and sat us right down. I am sorry to leave this kind of review, but we were disappointed to say the very least. :(

The service is okay ish, the place lacks vibrancy. Food was good but not what I would expect for the price point. Cocktails on the other hand were really good.

Overall, it’s an okay place except being over priced for the type of food you get. Worth a try won’t be returning again.

We showed up early for our 8 PM reservation. The hosted asked us to wait in their very nice lounge while he prepared a nice table - and it was perfect. While waiting we ordered cocktails and were seated at the table before the arrived. We split a delicious asparagus appetizer. Main courses were halibut and Dover sole. Both delicious. Service was great. We will be back!!

The whole experience was well worth it although it is very pricey. Food was delicious, our server was very professional, and we enjoyed our dinner. One comment...we had a cocktail at the bar and when the host informed us that our table was ready he proceeded ahead of us and did not offer to carry the cocktails. At a restaurant of this high standard, the host should have offered to bring our drinks to the table.

We dined at mistral to celebrate a special occasion, our son's graduation. We had a wonderful evening of excellent dining and service. There were 2 exceptions to our experience. The first was that we were seated at the rear of the restaurant which was not ideal as one side of the table faced a wall and we had to contend with noise and activity back and forth to the entry way of a service entrance. The other exception was that we were charged $9 to substitute a side that came with the tenderloin dinner when we substituted mushrooms for asparagus; it was not in addition to serving the asparagus so why charge for it? If someone has an adverse affinity to a vegetable and is requesting another vegetable in its place why add on a charge for this? It is not excellent customer service to have imposed that charge. Otherwise we had excellent service from Matt.

The good was as excellent as always. Delicious veal and delicious salmon. Our waiter was great. Attentive and humorous. The people at the front, though, were unfriendly and uncommunicative. We entered with a happy feeling and were slapped by indifference.
