We’re glad Mistral was participating in Dine LA. Their offering sounded scrumptious but sadly we were sticking to our keto diet! Wait staff was impeccable and our food always came out promptly. The international wine selection was extensive from $49 bottles to +$1000. I was glad the staff noticed my note on the OpenTable app about our special occasion and brought out a birthday candle ice cream at the end of the meal. I reserved a front room table. I suggest you don’t reserve the back room since it’s hot back there. I felt bad for the back room tables since it was about 15 degrees warmer back there. Although the wait staff and the food was impeccable, we felt the host should be more attentive to all the tables. We’re the only people of color that night but we were also the only table around us he neglected to check on. There are so many other great restaurants in the area so it might be another. 20 years before we visit Mistral again.

                                                                  I searched for a DineLA french cuisine last week and found out only Mistral had the escargot in the menu so I would like to go to give it a try. Service was nice however the outdoor environment is not as good as the indoor. Escargots were unshelled, very heavy butter and garlic sauce that make my stomach upset afterwards. The beef pasta I ordered was also very oily. The best dish I had was the vanilla bean cream brûlée. It’s sooo delicious with the hot coated caramel on top of the cream pudding.
