Brunch good but pricey!

Went here this morning for brunch. Restaurant was very busy. They do a good business for Sunday brunch. Nice selection of entrees, but very pricey. $19 frittata, $16 eggs Benedict, and many more dishes more costly than these. Food was tasty, tables were crowded together, service was fair.

Went here this morning for brunch. Restaurant was very busy. They do a good business for Sunday brunch. Nice selection of entrees, but very pricey. $19 frittata, $16 eggs Benedict, and many more dishes more costly than these. Food was tasty, tables were crowded together, service was fair. It was good, but for the money I would definitely head elsewhere.

Our first time at Mistral. It was a wonderful experience. The menu was amazing and we were in a bind on what to order. The Lamb rack was delicious!! We will certainly plan another visit to Mistral soon! Would highly recommend for a fun after work dinner with friends as well.

We were in Boston the night of Martin Luther King day, having finished out shopping trip, I decided it might be nice to take in a fine restaurant that evening. We were able to get a parking space less than a block away on Berkley Street -- with the double advantage of free holiday parking. We started with a nice... More

Arrived late into Boston, made reservations for 10:30pm, the table was ready but they allowed us to unwind with a drink at the bar. You can eat at the bar if you like but had a table. Ordered the mussels to start which were in a lovely white wine sauce. As mains we had beef tenderloin and the bronsino(fish on... More

Positives: Great food, nice environment, tuna and especially tenderloin were done perfectly. Improvements: Allow a little more light into restaurant and change the music to less of a children's keyboard jazz movement Very nice food outweighs the ropey background music!

We recently had our Christmas dinner (group of 4) at Mistral. I've been there twice before and it's good to see that the quality and presentation of their food remain excellent and, if anything, improved even more. Service was pleasant and fast. It's all worth the price for a very fine dining experience. Having said that, business diners take note....to... More

They have fantastic brunch and dinner options... the tuna tartare was to die for... It's been a while since I have revisited but I recommend this to any friend, Bostonian or visitor if they haven't been. Great for families, friends, romantic dates, you name it. One of my favorite restaurants in Boston.

Had an awesome time at this restaurant. We had brunch here. It was excellent! From quality of food, to service by the staff and ambience - loved all of it. The serving sizes are good and presentation is joyful. Makes you feel happy after spending more than average money per person. Definitely a must try and make a reservation before... More
