Though it was a classic french restaurant for many years, they changes chef's a few years ago and became farm to table. Most, if not all of their ingredients are locally sourced and organic. The food is always very fresh and their great staff always know what to recommend!

Service was attentive, the views from the second floor of the hotel were beautiful and the seafood dishes were very good. It is a shame that the restaurant seemed almost empty. Given that this hotel is way out of the way on the strand - the restaurant patrons would almost exclusively be hotel guests.

Our meal included the largest scallops we've ever seen ... along with lightly breaded calamari and other wonderful seafood... perfectly prepared ... served separately on squid ink risotto and squid ink pasta - delicious and very impressive.

I have been to Mistral twice - once in May and again last night (January). Both times, the seasonal menu was impressive and delicious. Last night we had a great meal that started with squid ink risotto with mussels and calamari. It was incredible and the flavors rich without being overwhelming. The ravioli in red clam sauce was also terrific.... More

The venue was perfect for our conference breakfasts and lunches. It's conveniently located across from the conference space and well appointed. The buffets were well presented, warm and tasty. Everything tastes better when you couple it with a sweeping views of the Coronado harbor.
