I have eaten here many many times. Was there on a weds night and the had sweet breads as a special appetizer. Had mine prepared with a brown sauce with some fresh mushrooms. SOOOO GOOOOOD. Been a while since I was swept away. Had the bone in prime rib eye afterwards. Place is always excellent.

If you enjoy great French food, served in an intimate setting with an excellent wine list, this is the place for you. Mistral is a small local place with a big presence. It's been in business here for 20 years and that speaks volumes. Recommended but make a reservation.

I have been to Los Angeles many times, and have often felt that most of the restaurants were slightly overrated. Some friends invited us to Mistral, and it proved to be the exception that I had been hoping for. The restaurant is charming, has an elegant feel, and the atmosphere is quite romantic. An excellent wine list, superb, friendly service,... More

1. Disappointed: My young adult daughter and I have dined at numerous restaurants with impressive reputations. Mistral's is NOT one of them. The French onion soup was average as was the cappellini with tomatoes and linguini with cajun shrimp. In fact, the shrimp was overcooked. The chocolate souffle, however, was fabulous! As far as the service, it took forever to... More

A gem of a restarant that never disappoints. Raul is class personified. Bistro garlic chicken with fires. Tuna tartare. Steaks are awesome as are the desserts. Great wine list but they allow you to bring your fav for a corkage free. Don't miss it. Fantastic

Innocuous from the front but a big wow once you are inside. Feels like what it is - a classy French restaurant that pours a mean drink and offers up great food. Favorite dishes: Garlic Chicken, any Steak, Panko Halibut and the Escargot is out of this world. Come hungry and come often! And mak a reservation - this place... More
