The restaurant itself & location are central, convenient but nothing special. The staff are courteous but the overall feeling is one of a slight pomposity. The food was very good, as was the wine, & the staff appear to know what their talking about & their advice is good. But the expensive prices are not justified.

Had a great dinner there with terrific service from the hosts to the wait staff. They were amazingly accommodating to a food allergy at our table. Overall, our experience was superb. The noise level in this restaurant is very high. If this is a consideration for you, try to get a table away from the bar area. It will be... More

My wife and returned to Mistral after more than a year, and were very satisfied again. Great ambience, excellent food and good (but not great) service. Best of all is that when the server brought the desert menu, I was craving chocolate, and found five chocolate desserts to choose from. I had the profiteroles (beautiful and delicious) and my wife...

My daughter, a good friend and I enjoyed a fabulous french gourmet meal on a Saturday evening, even meeting really nice couple next to us, making it even more fun. The food is exceptional, we had a picnic - mostly appetizers, one Entree and then three fantastic desserts. The Pizza was wonderful, but so was the salad, and I could... More

Louis is an amazing and attentive server, the food was amazing, the drinks were delicious. We were seated in the front lounge area which was a little loud but didn't matter to us at... More

We went this past evening not knowing it was dine-out and were very impressed. While the restaurant was packed, it was not too loud nor bothersome. The atmosphere was engaging and lively. The service was very efficient and attentive. The quality and preparation of the food was second to none. The appetizers were outstanding. The maincourses were very good and... More

My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Mistral two days ago and had a fabulous meal. The food was tasty, well-prepared, and done to our specifications. The service was attentive and friendly and the suggestion of a wine was more than appreciated. This was my first time at this restaurant and I would not hesitate to come back again... More

I live in Boston and this is top 3 on my list of favorite restaurants. I've been a few times for Boston's Dine Out, but would love to go for a regular experience as well. It's pricey, but as it's one of the best meals I've ever eaten, it's worth the cost. We recently went last Friday and the hostess... More

Mistral is never a bad choice, while I have been on several occasions, I am always excited to go back! The service is prompt and attentive. However the food is delicate yet heavenly to savor every morsel.. Amazing wine collection too boot.. Highly recommend Mistral!
