My wife and I recently had dinner at Mistral and very much enjoyed the experience. She got the swordfish and I had the beef and both dishes were very good. Waitstaff were very attentive without being overbearing. Make sure you have a reservation.

This restaurant is a Boston classic. So many restaurants try to showcase the ingredients or the plating or the fame of the chef. At Mistrall the food is the center of attention and it is always delicious.

This was our second visit to Mistral. Once again, the dinners were perfection. We had the tenderloin and the bronzino. Both were the best we have ever tasted. And the lobster bisque en croute was amazing. The presentation of all was beautiful. The server was so attentive without being intrusive.

I had dinner at Mistral with a friend from Tokyo. The menu and selection of wines and cocktails were well constructed and extensive. The wine list provided many choices with prices ranging from moderate-high. The shared appetizers, main course, and dessert were well executed and presented. Table service was pitch-perfect--mature and competent, and attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was... More

Was in town for business and a local colleague suggested having dinner meeting here. Excellent choice! Food is fresh and prepared impeccably. Service is courteous and professional. Atmosphere is what you would expect of a top notch restaurant.

It was my first time at Mistral. The food was well presented, a nice menu not inexpensive but the quality and portions were good. I recommend the duck and the Tenderloin and as an appetizer the pizza.

I had a dinner with a friend and his wife and we had appetizer, main course and dessert. The food was excellent and for the size of the restaurant surprising that they serve it in this high quality.
