Great Service and excellent food quality. We had the escargot, and were surprised at how delicious it was. The only steak for lunch is New York Steak in 3 different sauce choices. Other than that, a prime burger is available.

We always enjoy a superb dining experience whenever visiting Mistral. From the greeting by the Maitre D', to the customized cocktails, to the mouth watering appetizer, main course and the finale of the Desert, no doubt about it, Mistral is a rare find these days and one to be cherished and savored!

The steaks are better than any "steakhouse" in the city. The seafood is great and they have the best french fries.

The secrets of a successful restaurant are good food and good service. Mistral has superb food and impeccable service. Good wine selection, excellent bar. These are the reasons that even after 30 years on the same location it is essential to make a reservation.

First of what will likely be many trips here. Everything was excellent, from the multiple waiters in white jackets providing service, to the wine, the salads, the main courses, and of course, the chocolate souffle for dessert. Came form my girlfriend's birthday and they rolled out the red carpet for her. Who knew that such a gem was just 5 minutes away?

We had a late lunch business meeting hoping to have a quiet lunch. The second seating after us was amazing. They ended up getting another 7 tables after we came in. We left at 3:30pm and we were still not the last ones out. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend for an upscale meal with an old world charm.

LOUD. Put in reservation, celebrating birthday. No acknowledgement. Waiter said Caesar salad was prepared tableside, it was not. Onion soup---good. Chocolate souffle ok. Pictures on Yelp looked good, so we went....food was ok, just not blown away at those prices. Good Good drink--Manhattan.

Mistral is a unique restaurant in the SFV. Unique in the sense of serving top-notch food consistently for over 30 years. Most other restaurants went out of business Mistral is still dedicated to gastronomic excellence. Service is helpful, dedicated, informed and fast. The kitchen is using the finest ingredients and is accommodating to any reasonable request.
The bar is great as is the wine list.

We love going to Mistral. We are always welcomed warmly by Raul. The wait staff is very attentive to our needs. We enjoy the salmon, the mustard chicken and they have a great steak! We usually start our meal off with their hot french fries, beet salad and/or goat cheese salad. They have the most amazing bread, crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Their desserts are also not to be missed! Their chocolate souffle is delicious or if you are watching your waistline, fresh berries.
