We live almost 100 miles away, yet we try to visit mistral whenever we are in the area. Great ambience, great service, great food. Every member of the staff acts like we're their long lost friends! The most authentic French food in the Valley!

This has been our favorite restaurant for years! I almost hate to write a good review, as I would rather it stay a Sherman Oaks secret. But in good conscience, I must celebrate a consistently wonderful place! It is our go-to for every celebration.

We had a great evening. The staff was very attentive and pleasant from the management to the servers. They have an extensive wine list, we enjoyed the escargot & crab cakes. All in all it was a feel good night and we will be back.

Once again Mistral proves themselves to have consistently delicious dishes and a wine list that seems even more robust than I’d remembered.

The old standby’s are still as delicious as ever. We started with escargot which for those so inclined, is about absolutely perfect. Moving to our main course, for me it was the NY steak au poivre with a salad they graciously split, along with the ever addictive pomme frites. I was sure to position them within easy reach of my date. Hey, it ain’t my first rodeo.

Interestingly there appear to be quite a few new entrees on the menu as well. My date had a creamy mushroom and asparagus pappardelle. I can attest it was delicious as my well positioned fries made the trade a forgone conclusion.

Dessert was the preordered chocolate soufflé. Make sure to tell your waiter when ordering that you want one. Or two. It can bring up possessive issues. It’s served with just the right amount of pomp and circumstance as a large spoonful of home made whipped cream is dunked into the middle of the chocolate soufflé. Wow. Yeah that’s a special occasion must.

All in all it’s hard to imagine that one of my already favorite places is, like a fine wine, still improving after 30+ years. Henri, Raul, Dana and the rest, congratulations.

Head to toe fantastic
Service and staff impeccable.
This is the way a restaurant should be run.
We felt spoiled the minute we walked in the door.
The food was fresh and prepared beautifully, absolutely delicious.
A bit pricey but I had no problem with it because I felt so special, food was amazing and the whole vibe was what fine dining is all about .Raoul who I assume runs the restaurant was so caring and helpful.

I immediately came home and booked another reservation for a holiday dinner .

Total winner of a night out

It was my brother-in-law's birthday. My mother decided to take him to Mistral - his favorite restaurant in the Valley. He enjoyed the wine, his John Dorey fish and the dessert. My mother also liked the experience very much.
I had the onion soup, and it was excellent.

Mistral never disappoints!
The food and service are excellent. The best French onion soup in LA! Made the traditional way. It’s full of sweet onion flavor and the cheese… melty, stretchy and delicious. Another favorite is the steak tartare. Again, the best in LA!

My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Mistral on what happened to be Thanksgiving Day. We were seated immediately (we had a reservation), and from there things just got better. The service was excellent and very prompt. The food was absolutely delicious (I highly recommend the chocolate souffle). And the staff were very friendly and personable. Can't wait to visit again.

We didn’t realize that it would be that busy on a Sunday night which affected the experience. Very noisy birthday party I close proximity to our table. As usual the food was great and service was good. Took so long for our chocolate soufflé that we decided to have dessert at home. Hopefully next time it will be a better atmosphere.

Friend’s Birthday. Raspberry Napoleon did not meet expectations. Had no flavor even with the raspberries.

My Paparadelle and mushroom entree was soupy-like. Reheat the next day was a little better. Birthday friend’s mussels were up to expectation.

Best dish was Caesar salad & was the freshest that I ever tasted.
