Le Mistral was highly recommended. And in truth, the main courses were very good - both meat and vegetarian. But it wasn't outstanding. However, the foie gras poêlé was not up to standard. The decor is over the top, but the restaurant was very dark. The server was the most diffident I have run into in memory. The wine list... More

This restaurant is one of the best ones that I have tried in Houston. Good choice of foods, the specials at lunch are really good and the choice of wine is excellent. We'll definitely return.

Business lunch at the recommendation of a local. We were accomodated a bit early due to a flight schedule. Both had the lunch special which included trout the day we visited. Service and food both excellent. Nice ambience and quiet so no need to speak over anyone. So good I would look forward to trying this restaurant for dinner. A... More

Went last weekend with a party of 6 for HRW. Service was perfect, atmosphere wonderful, food very, very good. Drinks nicely done as well. There were a couple of plates that were not "cared for" by the people ordering them, but that was personal preference, not the kitchen's issue. I will say (and, again, not the restaurant's fault, just the... More

The interior is very nice and trendy. In general the staff is very efficient yet “the head guy” had an edge to him when dealing with the staff. I started with the recommended wild mushroom soup which was served in a large bowl with their M initial written on top with cream. The soup was puréed and came and come... More

Have experienced their cuisine and atmosphere several times both for business and pleasure. Great intimate location for a quiet romantic dinner or a group get together. Chef Dennis' kitchen is very solid and he understands what makes a successful menu for each occasion. In as much as the cost of the food is very reasonable, the wine list although very... More

Have been several times. Lovely intimate location. You can eat outside (although this time of year is not the best four outside dining). It is great for lunch or dinner. For a quiet romantice dinner or a group. We went for my birthday dinner with a party of four. Francis took fantastic care of our party with great recommendations and... More

We used to go regularly at the end of a work week for drinks and dinner at Le Mistral's Bar. We preferred the bar to their dining room because of its informal atmosphere and the attentive service of their barman, Santiago. He not only recognized us, but remembered our drinks, and knew when to, and when not to, engage us... More

Nice place for business lunch and good service. Food is good but menu is limited. Okay for happy hour but nothing special. Worth a visit but not not my top choice for the area.

Came here with my family for our 13th anniversary meal. Good selection of traditional French dishes, often with a bit of an American spin on them. I had a cassoulet which was pretty authentic tasting and my wife had the 22 oz beef cut which she was not so happy with since only about a third of this was meat... More
