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. 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.

Have been to Mistral 4 times this summer and it never disappoints. Beautiful atmosphere, amazing dining and dessert options and friendly service. I loved my tenderloin, truffle and mashed potato pizza and my friend enjoyed her halibut. The desserts are my favorite!!

Tuna tartare and recommended wine by terrific waiter Edwin started off the meal perfectly. The fish entrees were served hot and delicious. We also enjoyed the Cornish hen, which was full of flavor and moist. Good wine list that would benefit from some broader less expensive choices. The desserts finished off a wonderful experience.

Service and food is amazing . The first table that we where seated was too small , but at our request they kindly moved us to a bigger and more spacious one.
My only comment is that send us a side of truffle fries “courtesy of the manager “ and they charged me !
Nice place !!

We had such a wonderful time. It was a special occasion and we were made to feel special from the moment we walked through the door. We had the most perfect table. Robert our server was fabulous and Andres who also served us was charming. Everything we ordered was incredible. My favorite was the crab ravioli. Thank you for such a memorable night.

While the food was ‘good’ it truly was just that. None of the dishes stood out as anything spectacular like they generally do at the Columbus group’s other restaurants. While my wife and I did enjoy the crab ravioli we found the other dishes to be lackluster. The desert in particular which was a chocolate torte was reminiscent of a microwaved store bought lava cake while my wife’s duck appetizer arrived over cooked and served over a stale puff pastry.
Would we go back? No. Would we go to other Columbus group restaurants? Absolutely, just not Mistral as we have had other similar experiences in the past here too.

Food was subpar and not near the high quality enjoyed on previous visits. Steak was almost inedible. Service was great though, and so was ambience.

Extremely poor service that began with not a single greeting, not even a smile from any of the 4 people standing at the hostess stand. That was after having to walk through a cluster of people blocking the front door smoking. Waiter took a very long time to come to the table the first time to take our drink order so long that we were ready to order everything. Service start to finish took almost 75 mins from seating to check with the longest chunk of time being between appetizer and entree. The music was so loud and inappropriate it felt like we were in a nite club instead of a highly rated restaurant. But it still wasn’t loud enough to drown out the cackling woman at the bar. Lighting was so dark could barely see what was served on our plates. Tuna tar tar appetizer was delicious but served in a deep narrow bowl with a fork that made it difficult to get those last few bites as you dragged it up the side of the bowl. The high mound of long thin wonton “crisps” was a pretty presentation but cumbersome to eat without having to smash the wontons down with your fork. My $42 prime sirloin entree was presented as two potatoes with a seared steak lain on top of a messy vin rouge sauce. Fairly Tasty but disappointing presentation. No medallion fan? And you leave the outer strip of fat and gristle on it? Overall a disappointing choice for our first night out in so long and a $200 bill. At least to me, for my first and last visit here, it felt like everything was designed to cater to the bar patrons, not the dining patrons.

We went to Mistral to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious without a doubt. However the Atmosphere was a bit noisy and the service was lacking. Our server was not attentive nor was he engaging in conversation. I think they were short staff and that reflect in the service.

Romantic dining room setting. Low lights, dreamy decor, excellent cocktails (we had ours in the chic lounge area as we waited for our table), and superb menu offerings. The summer corn soup is a must when in season! The duck and lamb dishes were delicious. Service was exceptional; from sweeping crumbs off the table between courses (I blame the warm, crusty baked bread - so good), to attentively positioning left-behind dinner napkins while at the restroom. The staff don’t miss a beat! And the food is nothing short of excellent. My husband and I would certainly return.
