beautiful food, put it on your list

Let me start off by saying some of the negative reviews around this place, make you stop and question whether or not its worth even visiting. But, once you get in, the experience starts and the flavours do all the talking. This place is beautiful, the crowd was definitely dressed very nicely... read more

Last night was a special treat...off to Boston from the suburbs for some fabulous food. We were seated in a table of two with lots of other table for two lined up to our left and right along a couch. Hmmm....we were early so no problem. I had the corn soup which was fabulous, husband had the duck, fabulous. For... More

Great food, great atmosphere, great people watching. Prices are fairly high but the food and service are worth it. They will even arrange the "house car" to pick you up and/or drop you off for your dinner reservations. Even on a Tuesday night the place was full! A couple of years ago at this place we saw Tom Brady and... More

I always enjoy coming to Mistral. It's definitely more expensive than the surrounding restaurants, but the food is always worth it. The fish (I recommend the Halibut) is cooked to perfection each and every time. The bread is served warm and the perfect start to the meal. I also recommend the thin crust pizza. The staff are very friendly, and... More

We stumbled on this restaurant after a shopping trip, We felt very underdressed indeed as this is a very classy, elegant restaurant full of very well dressed people. However, the food was outstanding and the service very attentive. This certainly turned out to be a highlight of our trip to Boston,

For about 18 years running, in my opinion it is still the best restaurant in the city. Although for seafood Jamie Mammano's new restaurant Ostra can't be beat. during the summer, end of July through August you must try his Corn Soup. You will swear that it is made with cream. HOWEVER, there is NO dairy product at all and... More

As you can see I've written over a 100 reviews. So I want to put this in perspective. Best waitress of all time, best Martini of all time (it was $18.00) Best Escargot, best Cornish game hen, top 10 salmon (hard to beat out Seattle) Just best everything. A place for a special evening, anniversary, proposal, etc. And the portions... More

We absolutely loved Mistral. The warm, upscale ambience, beautiful furnishings and decor, exceptional service, and of course the amazing food. We chose Mistral for our anniversary celebration and it was perfect. We enjoyed everything from the bread to dessert. Highly recommend!

Overall it was a wonderful experience. The ambiance, service, and especially food were way beyond excellent. I ordered a rib eye steak with red wine. The pairing couldn't be better! It was fantastic! I would come back when I have a chance!
