    We had a last minute reservation so were accommodated in the patio area; which was very nice and much quieter than beautiful dining room. All in our party enjoyed every aspect of the meal and experience.

    Mistral is always a delicious experience. Excellent food, friendly service, nice ambiance. Prefer the back patio as it’s less noisy than the main room. Food is expensive, but so worth it! Wish I could afford to go more often!!!

    Our little birthday group has been meeting here several times a year to celebrate for a decade. It never disappoints. While the food is always excellent, remember that you are also paying for well-trained wait staff and the small, yet appreciated, touches they provide to make our meal special.

    Everything was great, till the moment the restaurant manager came to our table to let us know that they closed and that we have been enjoying our dinner for four hours. It was 10:30 pm, our reservation was at 8 pm. Not sure if he was trying to be funny but his comment felt a little off. Obviously we loved the atmosphere and the food, if we lost track of time. Anyway we had an amazing time, good was great and the atmosphere was just beautiful.

    Christmas dinner with friends. At the suggestion of the waiter, a five course tasting menu was prepared and was absolutely outstanding. Starting with amazing tuna tartare, then followed by garlic herb scampi, white truffle pappardelle, New York steak with pom frites and ending with chocolate soufflé. INCREDIBLE. THANK YOU RAUL AND STAFF. Merry Christmas.

    Really disappointing and terrible meal this time. We’ve been coming to Mistral for 10 years and it was our favorite. But this meal was just awful on every level. We had to flag down waiters for everything — to order, for more water, etc. We got our starter salads an hour after we ordered. The scallops had zero seasoning/salt/anything and were cooked so poorly we had to send both orders back. They kept blaming everything on a large party on the patio rather than taking responsibility. They tried to “make up for it” by giving us dessert wine (which nobody wanted and 3 people don’t drink. We will not be going back.

    Upon arrival the room was quiet. Once filled it was impossible to carry on a conversation across the table. All staff were attentive and courteous. I eat slowly and felt they were looming over me to finish to clear the table. I know this is considered appropriate by some but became uncomfortable for me. Next time I will seat myself with my back to them. Food was delicious and elegantly served.

    We had an early reservation and sat on the patio. It was not noisy. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. We all had something different and everyone was very pleased with their meal. I think, to add to the ambiance, they need to dress up the patio. That being said- I liked that it was much quieter than the inside dining room. All in all- a very enjoyable experience !
