Always great service and great food. The staff is so professional and the service makes you feel you are the only one there. We always have enough leftovers for another meal as the portions are very generous. Our new favorite spot

I always feel like I'm on the lower east side of Manhattan when I come here.
Very New Yorkish with its high ceilings and understated elegance.
Excellent menu, wine list, and the steaks are outstanding.

We love going to Mistral. We are always welcomed warmly by Raul. The wait staff is very attentive to our needs. We enjoy the salmon, the mustard chicken and they have a great steak! We usually start our meal off with their hot french fries, beet salad and/or goat cheese salad. They have the most amazing bread, crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Their desserts are also not to be missed! Their chocolate souffle is delicious or if you are watching your waistline, fresh berries.

We visited Mistral again for a Dine LA event (we've been there at least one other time) and would go again in a heartbeat. Everything about this restaurant is terrific ... the noise level is very high but even sitting on the long banquette in a little slot for 2, we still managed to be able to converse easily. The service is really great; there was a red wine I had never tried (from Sicily) and was wondering if it would work with my meal; the sommalier offered to bring me a small pour so I could try it (I did love it), but that's the extra caring that makes this a great restaurant.

Our first time at Mistral. It was a wonderful meal. The food. Was well prepared and delicious and the service was first rate. The tables are very close together—it felt like we were all at the same table. I found the chairs uncomfortable however my wife was sitting on the banquette and found it comfortable.

All in all, it was a great meal and we will definitely return!

I have lived in the "valley" over 40 years, have driven by this lovely and quaint restaurant hundreds of times. I had no idea what a gem this restaurant is. I am thrilled they joined Dine LA or I would never have eaten here and I will certainly return. The owners and staff were meticulous and watchful for any need we had. The food was phenomenal and generous - we were very full! I love the French ambiance, the chandeliers, finely finished hardwood bar, open but cozy seating area. I ordered the scallops and they were like butter. I also had the smoked salmon for appetizer and the chocolate souffle. Wow what a meal!
Thank you!

Have been going to Mistral for probably 30 years. It never disappoints. Never! The food and the service is always top notch.

There may be an occasion when you prefer a quieter dining experience, and here your options are to either plan with them in advance to insure a less busy day or time, or go elsewhere. The second option may seem preferable at first until you find that you're missing the lively atmosphere, which is of course, part of the charm.

Mistral is not snooty or judgmental. I once called ahead after a long and grueling day with co-workers and explained that it was late, we were tired, was raining and we looked like dogs. The gentleman on the other end of the line simply said "great, what time will you be here?"

We could not have enjoyed our recent Mistral's dinner any more than we did earlier this week. It was a perfect spot to celebrate my husband's birthday. Cocktails and French fries as well as their complimentary cheese puffs, fresh gaspacho, wine braised short ribs (and a delicious bottle of wine) and especially the chocolate soufflés were extraordinary!! Thank you to Raul and his wonderful crew!

Birthday lunch with a girlfriend. Lovely restaurant with the old fashion ambiance and great service that’s hard to come by and hard to resist.
Clean and pleasant, easy and relaxing for lunch. I hear it is noisy at night. But I’m going to try it anyway with my boyfriend later next month.
The food was very well prepared and presented. I had the steak tartare that was not to my liking but I’m still interested in trying something different next time.
