First time I’ve tried this restaurant. I loved everything about it. Romantic, excellent service and wonderful food.
Great service, great food, and did a wonderful job creating the outside dining room.
THEY FIXED UP THE BACK AREA REALLY NICELY WITH A TENT FOR POSSIBLE RAIN AND WOODEN SIDES FOR WIND, WITH LOTS OF HEATERS FOR WARMTH. ALL TO GO WITH GREAT FOOD!
What a charming restaurant! It is warm and inviting. The service was outstanding, and the food amazing! A must to frequent often!
as always THE BEST IN THE WEST;BEST ESCARGOTS OUTSIDE OF FRANCE
good friendly service, and the always smiling owner Henri
who makes you feel at home away from home
Well I didn’t expect outdoor dining to be fantastic but boy was I wrong. Mistral has transformed the back patio and alley into a slice of heaven. The food and service as ALWAYS was FANTASTIC!!!! And somehow but not really surprising Mistral has created a great ambiance outdoors. If you are waiting for indoor dining Dont Mistral is as good as ever. Go now and dazzle your tastebuds.
Service is impeccable. Every item we ordered was delicious! I highly recommend.
Food and service excellent.
One of our favorite restaurants, service is excellent, great food consistently fantastic.
Very good food and service.
They could work on the outdoor dinning area ambiance
A great place to eat at. It's one of our favorites. We have been going there for about 26 years.
They are doing a great job with covid. I felt very comfortable.
Raul and his team do everything possible to make dinner out special. The food is always fresh, perfectly cooked and flavorful. We’ve been twice in the last two weeks and feel very comfortable eating outdoors at Mistral as they have taken all possibleCovid precautions.
Very good service and food
Best French restaurant in the Valley
Amazing as always
our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Fantastic food. Fantastic drinks. Great service. Truly a wonderful experience both pre and post covid. We will be returning many times over.
Took a date here on Halloween. Everything was fantastic. We ordered the pan seared pork chop and the duck confit, which was particularly outstanding. The St Germaine cocktail was excellent and service was topnotch. Highly recommend this restaurant!
As always, a wonderful evening out at Mistral and a fantastic dinner. Thank you Henri, Raul and staff! We will be back soon.
Great food and great service, as always. Excellent Covid 19 safety measures. On the other hand, sitting on a Saturday night on the sidewalk of Ventura Blvd (pandemic requirements) gets very noisy at times -- with unwelcome wifts of exhaust fumes. Better to ask about availability of their rear patio -- which we weren't aware of until we were ready to leave..
Felt safe outdoors. Menu always good with best Tuna Tartar ever. Other fish great too
Date night with the hubby - the food was insanely delicious, the service incredible and just an amazing feel good vibe. The angel hair pasta was probably the best angel hair I’ve ever had, and my husband had the duck which was unreal. The moroccan cigars are a must. Highly recommend!
An amazing experience as always. Our favorite restaurant!
Mistral has done a wonderful job providing a safe outdoor dining experience during these strange times. It was the first INCREDIBLE meal I've had since the pandemic started. The service and attention to detail was impeccable. We sat in the back in a converted outdoor dining area. They have made it as lovely as possible consider it was a parking lot. You can tell, the entire team at Mistral, is working VERY hard to ensure an elevated dining experience. The food and wine were so delicious. We cannot wait to go back again.
This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant
Excellent service. They treated our family as if we were one of their own. Converted parking area to a private patio dining space was magnificent. The staff were very attentive to every request and they even added some items to the menu at our request that evening. Food was delicious and we will be back.
What a lovely evening! No one tries harder to make the new normal a wonderful experience than Mistral. I could write what we had for dinner but it wouldn’t matter. Everything they make is the best. Just order what you like and it will be perfect.
One of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. My wife and I were in LA on vacation and our family ate at Mistral two nights in a row. Outstanding food. Arugula salad, sautéed (not fried) calamari, best pork chop ever, John Dory, lamb chops, lobster risotto - all great. Wait staff great ant the manager was terrific.
Finally tried this place Sunday night for my man's bday, we had been wanting to go forever! Escargot was on point, he had the fish and I had the pork chops for our main courses...all so delicious. We topped the meal off with the Chocolate soufflé for dessert. We can't wait too go back!
The food is prepared as you like. They do allow changes to the menu. The outside is set up alone the walkway and comfortable. Good wine selection. The salad was very good and the John Dory was grilled so tasty.
Had a lot of affairs

Our neighborhood gem . Excellent service and great food. Keep it up ! Thank you
My husband and I always love dining at Mistral but the last time we had dinner there, tho the room is lovely, it was so noisy we couldn’t even hear each other. So we stopped going because part of a fine dining experience for us is also being able to have a conversation. Then COVID arrived and tables were moved to outdoors. When my husband asked where I would like to have dinner for my birthday, I immediately replied MISTRAL! What a treat. I decided to have two appetizers, each of which was a meal the portions were so generous. I started with the tuna tartare, which came with a lovely green salad, sliced cucumbers and toast points. It was the best tuna tartare I’ve ever had. Simply delicious. Made the French way with chopped capers and shallots and herbs. I then had the lump meat crab caked on a bet of stewed leeks and asparagus. Divine! My husband started with a Caesar salad and also had the crab cake. We ordered a chocolate soufflé to share but because it was my birthday, the chef sent us two soufflés.
Waitstaff is worthy of the standards of a fine dining establishment. Thank you for a lovely evening and we will be back soon.
Amazing food! Service was not great at first but later our server was amazing.
Great food, great service. Will return. Still expensive, even on Dine LA.
Always consistently yummy!
Patio needs more lighting
Excellent servers- very attentive
Foodies delight. The French know how to cook a steak....
We decided to have dinner at Mistral and are so glad that we returned to this restaurant which was up until the start of the pandemic one of our very regular haunts. As always we were greeted warmly by the staff and enjoyed the beautiful patio dining which they have installed. The food was delicious and both the LA dining menu and the regular menu were available. But what impressed us the most on this particular visit was our chance to see how strictly the sanitation rules were being followed at the restaurant. Tables were immaculately presented 6 feet apart. Waiters and Servers wore gloves, face shields and masks. When a couple seated within our viewing range left the table and the chairs were disinfected with thorough attention.
In light of the present circumstances we are very careful when we choose a place to dine. Being outdoors is not enough. Appropriate distancing between the tables, proper personal protective a tire on the part of all of the employees of the restaurant and thorough sanitation of not only the tables but also the chairs and everything else that might come in touch with a customer are the top priorities we look for before agreeing to eat at an establishment. Mistral hits at all the ballpark on all of these items. With the addition of both street side and patio dining one can enjoy a beautiful quiet dinner with the perpetually great staff, food service and food itself. Those were reluctant to go out for fear of catching something need not worry about it when it comes to Mistral. They are doing everything right and no detailAppears to have been omitted! We can’t wait to return and return we will
