    Disappointing. Food was not very good - halibut overcooked, duck so greasy, risotto gluey. Service was also not great, slow, asked for a glass of white wine for our appetizers but they brought the red that we had ordered for our main course. Nice decor, cool space, but would never, ever go back.

    I found the restaurant was very crowded--our table for two was very close to both the table on our left and right. Although the food was good (not excellent) it was very expensive. The rack of lamb was priced at market and when I asked what the price was, our waiter (who was very good) told me it was $115! I did not order it. Also, we had a 7:45 reservation but had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. I would probably not go back again. It was our anniversary and I wanted a lovely quiet dinner and I was disappointed.

    I'm afraid to say that this restaurant is overpriced. The food is excellent. In fact, the rack of lamb I had was perhaps the best I've ever eaten. However, the $145 "market price" was ludicrous. Very good wine list but the mark-up on wines is extreme, even for a restaurant of this quality. The worst part was that the service was rushed. For such a high-end restaurant, we expect a more relaxed and comfortable pace. But our waiter kept pushing for our entree orders, and the entrees came out just as we were finishing our appetizer. Overall, despite the quality of the food, the experience was disappointing.

    It was tricky to find, but worth the effort. The food was amazing...we followed our Walter's recommendations for the appetizers and he was right on both counts. Same for his wine recommendations. The seating was super-comfortable, which made it even nicer for a lingering anniversary dinner.

    This restaurant must be riding on it’s previous success and popularity. Coming from New Orleans and fine dining experiences Mistral really fails. The Caesar salad was okay. The escargot was oily, the sauce was strange and the escargot overcooked. The sole was in a swimming pool of butter so I left most of it on the plate. The service was great. The ambiance and decor needs to be updated.

    Super service!!!! Mushroom carpaccio was ok and the arugula on top was a little yellow. Halibut was dry. Crab ravioli was not great. The crab was past it’s prime. Seared foie gras was good! Escargot was good! Too loud. I think I was expecting too much because of the good ratings.

    I was so excited to try Mistral after studying their menu but I have to say that is going to be one of those restaurants that I probably would never go back again. Although the ambiance was great, I wish our experience was better. What I would like to think is that maybe our waiter and the GM were having “one of those” days. Had to wait a bit over 20 mins to get drinks on the table and I actually got up from my table to request service (which I NEVER! Do) I totally understand and sympathize with the staff and how we are all struggling in different ways, but this shouldn’t be pass on to the customers we were there to have a good time. The general Manager knew we were there waiting long and didn’t even stop by nor apologize for it. For food we had the Escargot and the carpaccio which it was fabulous, the beef Wellington was outstanding, dessert not so much and we were disappointed.

    Although I would still recommend Mistral to a friend, it needs help. 20 years of going there, the menu is stagnant, but still tasty. The turnover that all service industriesi are experiencing was very apparent. It's not too late!!

    Best halibut ever!! I would call Mistrals food Americanized; not true French food. Overall the food was good but not great and the service was ok. There are definitely better and less costly establishments in North Boston. Would probably not return to this one…. Well maybe for the halibut!

    We went for my husband's 30th birthday and it was an amazing experience. We got the prawns, crab ravioli, fois gras and duck confit, and escargot as apps and lamb shank for main to share - we under estimated how much food we'd get for the apps and we barely picked at the lamb shank! Very delicious and wine they picked was exactly what we described in the flavor profile. The service was great, very attentive. We loved the ambiance. Can't wait to go back and also try some of their sister restaurants!

    Nice restaurant but the food is not spectacular for the price and service was only ok. If you're not price sensitive, definitely worth a try. The duck is excellent, the halibut was ok but I've gotten much better halibut elsewhere for $20+ less (at Oleana's for example).

    Wonderful food very special dinner with an extensive menu. Wait staff friendly and took care of every need we had. Extensive wine list. Dress code is more than casual. Great for date nights and family celebrations. I would not recommend taking children to this restaurant. The duck was the best, even better than the duck I had in Paris! Don’t miss this gem. You cannot go wrong. Great location.

    This was truly one of the overall finest meals we’ve ever had. From a Starter of beef Carpaccio which was so fresh tasting. Each component added so well to the dish. Moving on to Duck, Halibut and the Dover Sole Meunièr which were all done truly wonderful. When you love the accompanying dishes as well on their own, the dish gets a resounding “mmmm”. Deserts were sorbet, crème brûlée torte and mousse…all got 5 stars for their own subtle flavors like flakes of sea salt and creaminess. Ending with a wonderful decaf coffee! The fantastic waitress was the capper of the night. She had the perfect amount of attentiveness, personality and charm. Great job. Will be talked about for a long time by this foodie family.

    Halibut is always amazing. The duck and salmon were not great. Edible but duck was tough like leather. Salmon was average tasting. Service is always impeccable. But will say if your spending $50-$60 a main course not considering appetizers and drinks - the main course should be really good. Duck was not worth eating.

    Our first time at Mistral. Excellent, friendly service. As a vegan, I was able to easily modify a couple of items, like the Mistral linguini and the jumbo white asparagus, by eliminating the Parmesan cheese. My wife enjoyed escargot. Overall, very enjoyable, if a bit pricey. We will go back.

    Second time visiting this fabulous and simply gorgeous restaurant for business dinner. Early seating promises less noise level and by 6:30/7 the place is packed with high energy in the main dining and the bar area. The food is fantastic and they have a great wine list as well. The menu options are vast and the kitchen timing with server coordination is superior. One of my new favorite restaurants in Boston for a business meeting option. I would also recommend for a special occasion. I observed several larger tables with guest celebrating.
