Mistral has been consistently fine dining for 30 years. I look forward to being back at its intimate but noisy bistro indoors. The back patio is pleasant but not attractive ambience.

Mistral continues to be a gastronomic treasure in Sherman Oaks. The food is superb and the service is beyond compare. We had some tomato/zucchini soup last night
that was out of this world. The Jon Dory was so light and tasty. So grateful to Raoul & company for sticking it out during these Covid times.

The folks at mistral have been making my wife and I feel like family for 30 years. The food is always excellent, and the ambience, good feelings, are worth their weight in gold to us, especially as we come out of this lockdown. It was like visiting old and dear friends in their home.

The food and the service always exceed our expectations. We have been coming here since they opened and even if we are not celebrating anything we always feel like we have had a special evening at Mistral. The new outdoor space is great and gives the restaurant a fresh feel.

Service was rushed. Asked for “crispy duck”. Told it would. It wasn’t. Took food home, but they failed to include the sauce as requested. Not as good as usual.

It was such a heart warming welcome at Mistral. The entire experience was all I’ve come to expect from such a venerable secret landmark and one of the best restaurateurs in Los Angeles.

Starting with the food, as always it is consistently spectacular (yes, escargot was served) the service was incredibly attentive and the welcome felt so warm and genuine.

I’m so glad Mistral is one of the survivors.

I enjoyed my date very much. Even though my appetizer wasn't great and my main course wasn't fully cooked, I did enjoy my time there. They did take my main course, which was the halibut, and cooked it a bit more, and it had so much flavor after they did that. The sauce it was in was also pretty incredible. My waiter was incredibly sweet and answered all of my dumb questions about the food. I will go back and give it another go because I have heard great things about the steak, I just wasn't in a steak mood the night that I went.

Very good and fast service, food also good I ordered the lamb chops and my bf ordered the crab cake and Caesar salad.
They also were able to make us margaritas since we’re not really wine individuals. The desert was also good we got the cheesecake.

We had the most wonderful dinner with service that was perfection. We have always liked Mistral but the noise level in the main dining room was always painfully loud. Now the beautiful trellised patio is a beautiful and quiet space and the food is always exceptional.

Mistral is the perfect place to celebrate anything . We were there in March to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and it was great. We have made many memories there over the years . We celebrated our daughter's birthday there on Wednesday night and we had a fabulous meal ! The staff was attentive and we enjoyed every single minute !

Great evening on the back patio. The food and service was impeccable. It felt so nice to socialize and enjoy a good meal with friends and colleagues. Dessert wine was a nice finishing touch...courtesy of the owner. I highly recommend Mistral.
