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 have been at Mistral many times and up to this point we have been very happy with both the food and the service. This holds true for this visit. They always want to please their customers so if there is even the smallest problem they fix it immediately. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

The restaurant attempted to cheat us. The waiter brought a bill that charged the two of us for a second whole bottle of expensive wine that we did not have. He gave us a brief apology and brought a revised check. But this sort of obvious cheating is not right in a high class restaurant.

Went there for my anniversary and enjoyed a serene environment with incredibly tasty food. Dessert Menu was out of this world.

Mistral was great. The food was delicious and priced accordingly. I’d go back and if you are considering going you’ll be happy if you do go. The tables are too crammed together making everything feel a bit cramped. Case in point, the waiter actually slammed his behind into my shoulder while working at the table next to us. He didn’t turn around to say sorry which I thought was rude. Also, our reservation mentioned we were there for our anniversary but he never said anything about it the entire meal. Our experience with open table reservations on our anniversary is this is noticed by the restaurant and they wish us a happy anniversary so I felt disappointed. Finally my wife mentioned that he had a lot of tables and was very busy. There were a number of times we wanted to talk with our waiter but he was so busy he wasn’t available unless we would’ve flagged him down. I wouldn’t expect a situation like that at a dinner that cost $400 for two people. Still, from a pure food perspective our meal was great. Isn’t that mostly what we care about?

Everything was fabulous! Loved that my daughter and I could share/split our dinners and the waiter didn't make us feel cheap. We just can't eat that much food. Portions were perfect and surprisingly generous considering we shared. Hip/sheek ambience!! A little over priced but well worth it!!

Very nice evening for something special. Very good food, wonderful service from Alexis, good wine, and lovely setting. A bit loud but not awful. Wine list excellent but tends to the pricey side. Overall a nice night out for something sort of special.

Mistral used to be my wife’s favorite restaurant, we hadn’t been in a while and were excited to go back.

The experience was overall disappointing - service was just okay as was the food.

Likely won’t return as there are much better options particularly given the cost

Yusef is a server we have had the pleasure to be with previously. This is a place to come back to which we do every year! Always quality and never changes in its attention to detail and scrumptious cuisine.

After having Mistral recommended several times I finally made the trip and it did not disappoint. The staff was attentive, the food outstanding, and wine recommendations spot on. Will definitely be back again for another special occasion.

All good! Lovely meal with friends—meeting on a weeknight for company and food. We used the “excuse” of a birthday but actually just enjoy making time to get together given competing work, time & space.

...but the important common denominator is we all love good food.

My husband’s first time and he really enjoyed his meal. Also the noise levels allowed us to actually converse without yelling.

For the rest of our party of 4, this was one of multiple fine meals at Mistral. We will return again

I went with a friend after work and we sat at the bar to eat. The service was horrible and nasty. The food fantastic, but the service terrible. Had to wave down the lead bartender, verbally, multiple times. She refused to even make eye contact. Won’t be back there. Too bad, too, because the food is excellent.

Enjoyed their brunch. Very calm peaceful morning. Small things could have been more elegant, such as better quality coffee, or perhaps fresh juices. The bread was standard, but nothing special.

The duck hash vegetable skillet with poached eggs was phenomenal. The rosemary, gruyere omelette was good, nothing special. We shared the bacon onion and gruyere pizza which was very nice.

Service was quite good, but again, not to the level anticipated for a fine restaurant.

Lovely atmosphere.

Missing on a few minor points. Still, quite pleasant. I will return.

Our waiter was absolutely amazing! he looked like Drew Carey (I think his name may have been Ken?) and was so accommodating and wanted to make sure everything was perfect. Food was awesome, wife got salmon and I had braised short ribs. Caesar salad was one of the best I had ever had. Great cocktails too. I would absolutely go back and recommend to others!

Really mediocre experience which was a huge disappointment since our last time there was fantastic dining experience.
To start things off my wife and I were both having fish, so I had narrowed my selection down to two white wines that were unoaked and asked the waitress for her thoughts. Instead of asking about my preferences she said, “I see what you’re trying to do…” and then steered me towards a white that was oaked. In addition to that she then pushed the most expensive bottle in each grouping. We finally ended up settling on a US Sauvignon Blanc which was nowhere near the wine that the Sancerre would have been.

The onion soup was excellent, and a generous serving (which is incredibly hard to find in restaurants). The escargot was cooked perfectly, but unlike the last visit the sauce was lacking richness, just garlicky and oily.

It really went off the rails with our entrées. The dover sole was overcooked and along the way I found a bone. The serving size is generous with two filets and a large serving of spinach but for 60 dollars I do expect it to be cooked properly and no bones especially for a dish that is a mainstay of their menu. The pan roasted cod was undercooked which again was a decent sized serving but poorly executed.

The server also seemed to be preoccupied with other tables and did not inquire as to how our meals were or I would have been more than happy to express our disappointment then.

This was a huge letdown after such a great experience last time.

Decent food- was not in love with the overall vibe. There was paper on top of the white table cloth in order to flip tables quicker. I understand this is for efficiency purposes, but when I am out to brunch or dinner, I do not want to feel as though there should be crayons missing from the table set up.

This is a solid 3 but definitely not a 4.5 or 4 star experience.
