My wife and I dined here recently for our 46th wedding anniversary.
Service was very good and people were very friendly, but 3 things stood out to us as kind of odd.
1. When we drove up to the restaurant, there was a valet waiting. However, there was a metered parking space available toward the front of the restaurant which was not marked as being for valet service. Nevertheless, as soon as we drove into that parking space the valet pounced. If it were really a valet parking space, it should have been clearly marked as such. With tip, almost $10.
2. The menu stated that salad was included in all New York steak orders. When my steak arrived, there was no salad. When called to the attention of the waiter he stated that he exchanged the salad for the french onion soup that my wife and I shared. I thought that very nice in that the onion soup was $15.00. When the bill came, however, it was not treated as an exchange. They still charged $6.50 for the soup. If they are going to do that, they should ask the customer in advance if that meets with their approval or whether they still wanted the salad.
3. We held off on ordering dessert until we finished the meal. We then asked the waiter which dessert he felt was better--the apple tart tartin or the bread pudding. He recommended the tart which we then ordered. The waited then proceeded to bring us both desserts, each with a candle on it, which again was a very kind thing to do. However, when the bill came, they comped one dessert and charged us $14.00 for the other. It was clear that we only wanted one dessert. If they were going to comp the dessert for our anniversary, that would be much appreciated. But to serve a second dessert, which we did not order, and charge full price for it, was just not proper.

This is a wonderful place for celebration of a special occasion or just to have a great dinner at a classy restaurant. The food is outstanding. The service is outstanding. There’s nothing like a professional wait staff and Mistral has it.

My friend and I very much enjoyed dining at Mistral Sherman Oaks. The service was superb. The dishes we ordered were presented beautifully, however the taste wasn't as impressive. It was a bit noisy to have an intimate conversation but the restaurant was full with an good and energetic feel.

I love this place. We used to come here all the time when we were younger. Now, it’s for special occasions and I still LOVE it. Yes, it can get LOUD. Go early to avoid, or just go with it. It’s a warm atmosphere and great food. Just bring good friends!

We very much enjoyed our meal at Mistral, which provides an old school French Bistro ambiance and formal service. We ordered three of the appetizers that were featured the day of our visit and I highly encourage diners to follow suit. The amuse was a lovely blue cheese cream puff, and the appetizers we enjoyed included the delicious peppers and jamon & date salad. The featured halibut was a generous portion, on a lovely creamy corn and vegetable mixture. One of our diners had the New York steak and frites, which were crisp and delicious. And don't skip over the chocolate soufflé when the waiter asks you if you want to order one when you place your entrée orders. There was one celebrity sighting when we were there, and lots of interesting people watching as well!

My husband said it was not just the best meal he had at Mistral, but the best meal ever. He traveled all over the world on business and pleasure for over 30 years. When I took him to my favorite restaurant in Paris, he said it was fine. Obviously, he does not give praise lightly. Mistral is always at the top of our list.

We met another couple at Mistral for lunch. Had to move from our original table, as the group they seated at a table nearby was literally inches away from us. Far too close for a comfortable dining experience. But Mistral was happy to reseat us. Menu had lots of great options and daily specials. Food was good. I had the chopped salad and it was good size. They dropped off complimentary bread/cheese appetizer puffs which was nice. My husband had the baked salmon. Said it was slightly undercooked, but ok. He would not recommend the spinach as it was bitter. The Chardonnay was notably overpriced for the brand. The overall ambiance was good..think French bistro with white tablecloths and they did provide black napkins upon request. They have valet parking and some metered street parking was available as well. Apparently, this place has been here over 30 years. The tab for the four of us, including tip, was about $200. I would likely go back, as I would like to further explore their menu, but I would use their corkage ((I think I recall it was $20) over their wine list.

Foods and Services are great! All dining personnel, from the Hostess to the waiters, the clean up team and the valet parking man, were friendly, patient and accommodating. The other guests were also very pleasant. It's a beautiful restaurant. The tables and seating are very comfortable, is plenty of room, isn't crammed. The noise level is perfect. We didn't have to raise our voice and were able to hear each other very well.

The San Fernando valley is not noted for its culinary achievements, but this restaurant is at the top, and can successfully compete with leading Los Angeles restaurants
