I am sure you have already read that the restaurant is VERY/TOO noise for a party of 6. It would work for 2 or 4, but never 6 unless you want a sore throat from yelling across the table.

The food was incredibly good and the service was excellent. The restaurant was decorated for Christmas beautifully. My only complaint is that the chairs at the tables were uncomfortable (wooden, fairly low backs) and slightly wobbly. For the price of the food I’d expect cushier seats that make you want to linger for a few more glasses of wine. Overall, it’s a fantastic restaurant.

Extraordinary restaurant with excellent food and impeccable service. We went for the prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner, and the menu was outstanding. Classic fine-dining fare with a hint of Thanksgiving flavors and presentation. We've been for the regular menu as well, and it's just as good. Just great food served by good people who are happy to have you and work hard to make your experience special. I love this place.

Wonderful Thanksgiving meal. The food could not have been better, and the service was attentive and professional. Everything was well prepared--fresh and expertly seasoned. The portions were most generous. For starters, my wife had shrimp cocktail with with five huge, perfectly cooked shrimp. I had an arugula salad which was superb. For the entrees, my wife had the John Dory which was excellent, and I had the traditional turkey with almost all the trimmings. I missed the dressing, but there was more than enough on my plate. For dessert, my wife had chocolate souffle, and I had the pecan tart with a huge scoop of vanilla gelato. Plus a fine bottle of Pino Noir which our waiter helped select. A wonderful Thanksgiving feast. This was our first time at Mistral; we look forward to enjoying lunch here.

I hope you accept my revue as objective in spite the fact that my wife and I have been steady customers pretty much from the get go nearly 30 years ago. Food is outstanding. They use top notch,fresh ingredients. Cooking is extraordinary. Attention to detail is unfailing. There is a large selection of California as well as French,Spanish and Italian wines. Mixed drinks are fabulous. Now the best part: SERVICE! The best. Friendly,professional,helpful ,informed and fast.
Reservations are essential. The restaurant is completely booked every night.

Mistral never disappoints, from the time you sit down from your first tasting to the delicious coffee at the end. The service is impeccable, romantic ambience, wonderful servers, attention to detail, divine food, and of course a welcoming Maître d named Raul. An outstanding choice to dine!

Our first visit. Impecable but not intrusive service and wonderful special menu options. Pricey but was not disappointed. Three different fresh fish chosen by our foursom, all excellent! Would recommend for a special intimate dinner but they can handle probably tables up to 8. That increases the ambient noise however in ths small space If you are lite eaters, the portions are generous if you want to split entres and try appetizers to get a nice variety.

It was small, bistro like and hopping. The food was very good and our waitstaff was very attentive. My only negative was that the front of the house or maitre'd seemed to be rushing us which distracted from our nice time. Also I would have liked a choice on the doneness of my pork chop which was slightly more well done than I would have wished for. Definoiely would revisit but with stronger instructions.
BTW there were open tables all night so that they werent rushing us
because others were tryimg to sit down, somethimg I am extremely tuned in to.

Mistral has a nice atmosphere and the service was good to very good (though I have come where it has been horrible)----we had appetizer (soup/salad), main course (filet/risotto) , desert (2 soufflés) and 2 glasses of wine each --- w/tip it was $240. The food is decent, nothing we can't cook, but sometimes it's nice to go out.
