You really made my day. It was my husband’ birthday. The waiter mentioned the comments written in the reservation and said happy birthday to my husband, which really made my husband surprised. Also it allowed me to order the desert in advance. My husband was shocked when a waiter bringing the cake with candle. Thanks so much.

What an amazing experience! My boyfriend and I had brunch on my 33rd Birthday. Mistral is an upscale dinner restaurant that also serves brunch. It was the best brunch I've ever had in Boston! I had the Confit of Duck with a mimosa, and he had chocolate chip pancakes with Nutella banana and plantains. We ended with a cappuccino & hot chocolate with a home made marshmallow, paired with creme brulee donuts and cinnamon rolls. The staff was genuinely amazing, I would recommend this location to anyone!

I heard such great things about this place but left rather disappointed. The food and service was good but didn’t live up to the “OMG” hype. Nothing really special about my $58 Rack of Lamb and Tuna Tartar app was decent but not as mind blowing as reported. Long waits for service and not especially attentive until entree was served. Meh.

This is my second time having brunch at Mistral. Well Mistral wanted my review so here it is :
PRO: decor. Woodsy. Garden feel. Thumbs up 👍
Con : lukewarm hot chocolate topped with charred marshmallow , ( s/b toasted). I did return and hc was much warmer . Please , please add side power greens with a tossed light dressing on all your entrees. I think it would add look , taste and go with the woodsy theme. BTW please visit a restaurant in Easton Mass “ Farmers Daughter” for breakfast , you would be so enriched with ideas, the place is amazing ! Lastly , ordered 1 order of donuts to go , got Home and there were no chocolate pieces on top ( I ordered them previously) 👎 So what happened ? Well that’s my review.

The food is out of this world. Phenomenal! Seating in restaurant feels cramped and service could've been more attentive considering the cost of the meal. It's expensive but if you're looking purely for good food, it's a good place to try out.

My husband and I always choose Mistral for a great meal and service that do not disappoint, whether it's to celebrate a special occasion, or just because. As always, Mistral did not disappoint. I'm not quite sure what it was this time, but we had one of the best times we have had (and that's saying a lot, considering we always have a great time). Mistral for the win again!

We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their food. Unfortunately, our server was not very good. He seemed to be distracted, got our drink order wrong, never brought us bread, and had to be waved down to take our order after we waited almost 30 min.

Loved it! I unfortunately was seated close to door on cool night ... my reservation was made late so understand. Maybe a double door that only opens when the other closes would be helpful. Loved the food! It was incredible. Best foie gras I have had in a long time.

We arrived early for brunch but were quickly accommodated. Waiter was friendly, responsive, knowledgeable and helpful with menu suggestions. Service was prompt, food was beyond expectations and we were surprised by an anniversary dessert we did not order! Excellent value for the money. We look forward to returning frequently!

Very nice place in the Back Bay. On the negative side, the menu is a little old (note: boring) school and the bottles of wine are insanely expensive. On the positive side though, the service was exceptional and the food itself is top notch. We ate every last delicious morsel and were too full to even contemplate dessert. Definitely recommendable and we'll be back for sure.

As I was sitting there enjoying my meal I thought to myself "Why do I eat anywhere else!" And this is an honest and genuine feeling I have for Mistral. One of the best in Boston no doubt! Everything from the service, ambiance and of course the cuisine. Thoughtful, innovative, creative and amazing is what comes out of their kitchen. Can't wait to go back.

Mistral is a stalwart on the dining scene. The menu is diverse and covers all palates. Certain selections are so popular they have remained on the menu since opening 20 years ago. In a time where restaurants come and go, there is a reason for Mistral's longevity--they have the right recipe for a successful dining experience. The staff is knowledgeable and efficient, the portions are generous and the plating appealing to the eye.

Overall we enjoyed our dinner very much. The duck was excellent and our waiter helped us pick out an excellent wine. The salmon was fresh and good but nothing extraordinary.

What we didn’t like was that we felt rushed. We were surprised at how quickly our meals were served. When the waiter brought dessert menus and asked if we were interested, we said “yes” but that we didn’t want them right away, which he respected. The coffee was ok. Not strong enough for my taste and the steamed milk was nothing like what you get in Europe. I would have preferred cream. Finally we got the dessert tasting plate and all were excellent except for the profiterole, which tasted like it had been in the freezer too long.

Food was extremely over priced. No love. No attention went into presentation. Cheese platter. Thumbs down. Escargots sauce was good but that was it. Local cod entree. Its was just okay. Duck..i would feed it to my cat. As I said there was no love no professional skill put into the food whatsoever. I'm a local Boston chef and I wouldn't go back to that place if you paid me. And the dessert was terrible and dry it out something serious. Save your money.
