Romantic hideaway dinner, no loud music!

Book a romantic table for two looking out on the brook, and order the duck. The wines are exquisite. The service is lovely. This is a small countryside place, but with elegant touches, including white table cloths and a decor that feels less like red barn vermont and more like upscale Miami or... read more

My wife took me to this restaurant for a birthday dinner on a Sunday night. We sat overlooking a bubbling, rocky stream and enjoyed Foie Gras Maison as an appetizer and Chateaubrian for two for dinner. The meal, service, and ambiance are superb. The setting in the woods of Vermont is as unexpected as it is perfect. Put Mistral high... More

Always a special treat! Dinner here was excellent. Sitting by the waterfall on a hot summer night was just perfect. All four of us had a great meal.

Food okay. Too expensive for what it is. Staff all rude. Waiter's behavior was ODD! Owner standing at bar when we left, looking at us, never said thank you or goodnight. Dated, musty interior. Will not go back.

This was my 5th visit to this restaurant. The food never disappoints, choices are plentiful for the adventurous as well as the health conscious visitor. The staff are always very friendly and professional. Looking out the window you see a peaceful brook and the decor makes you feel as if you are a guest in someone's home: Try the stuffed... More

We had a great experience at Mistrals. With the help of Cheryl I planned a special birthday celebration for my wife and it was amazing. We designed a tasting menu and everyone raved at the food quality and flavors. Service was impecable and Chef Dana handled the dinner perfectly and even baked a birthday cake! We will definitely be back!

Very pretty restaurant (although I did notice a slightly musty smell when I went in the dining room). We went here with our two kids and another family with one child. (Our kids are older, late elementary ages) . They were very accommodating with items for children and our dinners were very good. Not spectacular, but it was a very... More
