    We love this gem of a restaurant! Service is impeccable. Food is exquisite, and the experience makes this one of the finest restaurants in there San Fernando Valley. You must try Mistral for a special occasion or to meet good friends.

    Consistently excellent food and good service. Pricing has increased dramatically post the COVID-19 pandemic. Corkage is a whopping $40.00 per bottle but refilling glasses by the waiter was non-existent, that is typically part of the corkage fee. All items are essentially al la carte so a modest dinner for two, with bringing your own wine bills in at about $130.00 per person. Host can be abrupt and somewhat condescending even with years-long customers. Not a good business model. The food quality and otherwise attentive service - minus the corkage fee lack of service is a redeeming factor.

    I hate writing negative reviews, but I had a very disappointing experience at this lovely neighborhood restaurant. We were seated and approached quickly by our busboy and waiter, ordered drinks, and got bread. Our waiter came soon after to take our order. It was now 6:15. While the table next to us was served and finished their meal, we waited and waited. At 7pm we asked where our order was and the waiter said the chicken takes a long time. What?! We were still waiting for our green salads. The entrees came at 7:15. There was no offer of a complimentary glass of wine or dessert. When I spoke to the manager, he said the chicken takes 20 minutes. I said it took an hour and he was not sympathetic or apologetic. I told him I'm going back for a birthday dinner on Tuesday. I hope we are treated better. If not, I will not be returning. Such lack of customer care or service.

    This was a lovely dinner with very close friends. None of us had ever been here before but we will be going back. The service was excellent as was the food. My husband and his friend had swordfish and both cleaned their plates. His wife had the veal dish and I had parpadelle pasta with mushrooms. Excellent. I also enjoyed a Black Manhattan with my buratta & tomato salad and a glass of Rombauer Chardonnay with my main course. My husband very much enjoyed escargot as his appetizer. Great food and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant. Can’t wait to go back.

    Walking through almost through the kitchen with all the smell to get to the patio is not a great experience. The patio is cheaply equipped, doesn't have an ambiance for a French restaurant. Food was good but had better for a French restaurant. Will look further to find a real French restaurant.

Though we have relocated from the Los Angeles area, Mistral is number one on our must visit restaurants when we return to Los Angeles.We can’t wait to return!

    This stalwart restaurant is charming and all business at the same time. Staff are smiling and attentive. The atmosphere is cool inside and warm outside. That’s were the covered patio can be found. The menu offers wonderful choices and delivers tasty results. Did we like it; yes we did. I’m looking forward to a returning visit as we noticed many “regulars “ agree .

    It was a birthday celebration and we had a great time. This is first time we are on the patio which was surprisingly very pleasant! The John Dory fish with veggies was amazing! The crab cake and scampi appetizers terrific. Unfortunately the steak poivre was tough and not as tasty as I remembered. The mussels were not as good as usual. The chocolate soufflé and bread pudding was excellent. We should have told them about the steak but everything else was so amazing.

    Be sure to see Dana at the bar for a great pre-dinner beverage. Sit down and enjoy a nice menu selection at an inviting indoor table or out on the back patio that is tented. No "shrink-flation" here. 14oz steak cooked to order with a mountain of fries you can and will share. Reasonable corkage and the service is hard to beat. The serving team had red wine glasses immediately as we transitioned from a bottle of Champagne. Wait! Did you order the soufflé??
