Food is excellent as is the service. Tables are small and closely spaced. Noise level is quite high. We had some difficulty conversing. But all that said, it is worth it for the food. I love onion soup and theirs is one of the best I have had. Instead of hot salt water with some onions in it which seems to prevail in so many places, this is the real onion soup. One can taste the broth. And the onions are lightly sweet. Excellent soup. Every dish was done to perfection. My wife's sea scallops were beautifully seared with that nice carmelized finish. Our friend's lamb chops were perfectly done and light seasoned giving the flavor of the meat a chance to shine...which it did.
We will definitely return to Mistral often.

Nice neighborhood restaurant for 2-4 adults, a bit noisy for conversation for any more than that.
Would not like to sit in any of the tables for two lined up in middle of the room, but the separate, round side tables for 4 are comfortable . The food, ambiance and service are very nice and we enjoyed our dinner. We will go back for lunch and dinner now that we have discovered Mistral's!!

We were seated at a table reserved for us on the occasion of my friend's birthday. Dinner was perfect, both the fish and the lamb. We were served a complimentary souffle for dessert. The wine selection was lovely. The service was perfect.

*Extremely* noisy. Small space and tables crowded close to one another. Ok but pretty expensive food. Management clearly favors regulars and the occasional celebrities than less frequent, non-celebrity customers.

Had lunch this week; first time at Mistral. Can't comment on food beyond the one dish both I and my guest ordered. We both had the panko-crusted ahi tuna, and it was superb. The sauce was delicious. I'm anxious to go back to Mistral for dinner.

The Maitre D' was friendly as always. The steak au poivre perfectly cooked (rare) which is a rare accomplishment, most restaurants think rare means grey-pink. The desserts were excellent as were the various soups and salads. The only negative was our particular waiter who was efficient, but who never said "good evening," "may I take your order?" or "how was your dinner?" He felt just glaring at all 3 of us polite and nicely dressed guests constituted adequate interaction.

We recently discovered Mistral (even though it has been in business for 30 years). Great location, great value, really tasty food, and a fun place to meet. One of our favorite places is Ca de Sole. This is a good alternative. Wide selection of wine and entrees. Recommended.

We have been frequenting Mistral for some 29 years. Food has been consistently superb and service beyond compare. Bar is topnotch, the wine list has excellent choices.We are early birds, usually make 6 o'clock reservations. At that time the restaurant is very enjoyably quiet. It can get noisy later.
Mistral is by far the best restaurant in the SFV!.

Met a business colleague for a catch up dinner - reservation times were a little more limited for a Friday evening, but we were warmly welcomed upon arrival. The service throughout was very attentive without being overly noticeable.

The food was delicious and the chocolate souffle was worth the calories.

The atmosphere was welcoming and lively without being overwhelming to conversation.

There is metered street parking options, but valet right out front too.

Hardly needs a review. This is a neighborhood favorite. Reserve your table a week or more in advance as this small restaurant fills up quickly. When you dine relatively early, as my husband and I often do, you have extra attentive service and your meals are quickly prepared. We were very happy with our entrees - my fish and his steak. We usually take part of our meal home to enjoy the next day, but we both cleaned our plates! I topped off my excellent dinner with a chocolate souffle. Wonderful meal, so we'll be back.
