Haven’t been there in awhile because it’s usually to noisy but now that they have less tables it was great and I forgot how out standing the food was. Great service and the chocolate soufflé was killer.

Great evening on the back patio. The food and service was impeccable. It felt so nice to socialize and enjoy a good meal with friends and colleagues. Dessert wine was a nice finishing touch...courtesy of the owner. I highly recommend Mistral.

the lobster spring roll was amazing!!! it should be on the permanent menu as a first course. i did stop myself from licking the plate as the sauce was also amazing! it is lovely to see the restaurant open inside with the outside patio as welcoming as ever. our friends agreed it was worth driving all the way from costa mesa.

My partner and I had dinner here last night. We were looking forward to the fine French food we had there a few months ago during the brief hiatus we had between lockdowns.

I was disappointed there was no duck on the menu. Instead I ordered the lamb chops. I ordered them cooked medium rare. The first chop was cooked perfectly. But by the time I got to the other three they had continued to cook on the plate and were well done by the time I got to them.

All and all it was just an okay dining experience. We were stuck in a corner with nothing or no one to look at. The service was attentive but mechanical. Every course came immediately after we finished the previous one, with no chance to relax and enjoy being out. The check was brought with desert - an indication that they couldn’t wait for us to leave.

Dissapointing.

Wow, these guys (and ladies) never missed a beat. Menu is awesome as ever, service is always the best, everyone happy to be back in full (almost) swing. What a great job they've done through the shutdowns. Awesome to see some inside tables (and a couple of barstools!) Thanks everybody at Mistral for sticking it out and pushing through the hard times. You are simply the best restaurant in the Valley, hands down.

I’ve never had service like this. I felt like I was at a private dinner. They gave us free wine at the end as well. They treated my sister , my husband and myself like royalty . The food was great as well!

Great restaurant. Always consistent. Very friendly waiters and excellent food. We were there on a cold rainy night and sitting in the back area under a big tent and with patio heaters felt cozy and comfortable and totally within CDC guidelines.

We had not been out to dinner for well over a year, but when I saw Mistral was participating in DineLA, we couldn't resist. There wasn't a thing that wasn't perfect for our first dinner. The service was impeccable, the food was beyond belief (and portions so big that we had to take some home), the outdoor area had been "sub-divided" so it felt a bit more intimate, and we ended our meal with maybe the best chocolate souffle we've had maybe ever! Mistral remains our favorite restaurant in the Valley.

Our table was on the darker side which made it hard when reading the menu. However, that would be my only fault in the experience. Everything else was FANTASTIC and the price was reasonable for everything we received

I love Mistral! It has been a favorite for years. Raul and Henri are amazing hosts and the entire staff makes any meal feel like a special meal. The Onion soup is as authentic as you can get in the US. The steak tartare is sublime....
Lunch, dinner.... it doesn’t matter. Soup and salad, burger and fries or an entire meal... excellent always!

This is still one of my favorite places to eat! My steak and salad were excellent as usual. They have done a clever job in setting up outside seating that was comfortable and clean. Nothing compares to sitting inside. We are looking forward to that!
