Great little eatery.

Tasty food. Fantastic service. You only need two starters to fill up as the meals are huge. Great wine list. The only downside is that there is a single toilet so be prepared for a bit of a wait on occasion.

I met my first date here seeking romance with a view. Both were provided as my request for the patio overlooking the water was granted. Our waiter, Mark, was very attentive which added comfort and privacy, great impression for our first time together as a couple.

A very nice experience : not only is the place very alluring with its patio facing the lagoon but the food is fresh and healthy ! An ideal place for a quiet and relaxing lunch or dinner. Or a romantic one... From the salad to the ravioli and the salmon, the food was very good. The service was flawless. And... More

We went to Mistral on a busy night, and requested a patio table. While they had a holiday party out there, they still had a few tables on one end. I expected the service to be lacking since they were pretty packed. It was not! The service was great and we never felt neglected.

Cam back for the first time in 3 years and it is still a great spot. Good food and Service. The salmon is wonderful as is the seafood paella. The Onion Soup was good, but a bit on the sweet side for my tastes. The salads are fresh and good size. The bar is vibrant and a fun place to... More

Reservations were easy to make on Open table, food is great and the bay view off deck for outside dining makes for a very relaxing meal.

Mistral has been around in our Redwood Shores neighborhood for years but for some reason fell off my wife's and I regular rotation. We stopped by on a whim about two weeks ago and were blown away. The menu choices are great, the food was fantastic, the wine list unbeatable, and the service was awesome. We are heading there again... More

The food is very good. The service is satisfactory. I got the tuna and it was excellent. Nice selection of cocktails, beer and wine. I recommend this place for a nice business meal.

First time I went to this restaurant was in 1995, when I had moved to the bay area. I have not been to this place in while and went there for dinner with a colleague. Food is good, however it is an expensive place. I work place is near the restaurant, so good place to go to avoid crazy Bayarea... More

Wait staff is awesome, and very accomodating for a business meeting/meal. Our party started with 5, and quickly expanded to 12, and they didn't even blink...just rearranged more tables, and we were all set. The meal selections are quite a great deal, for the 4-5 star class of food! Lots of appetizers to choose from also. I would recommend going... More
