We ate at Mistral on Sat- our go-to for our anniversary dinners... (5 years, wow!) Normally they're 5-stars, but the service left a teeny-tiny bit to be desired this time around. Although they did give us two complimentary desserts in celebration of our anniversary. Of course we'll go back, but hope next time the waitress has her a-game.

“Perfection on all levels ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2008

I wasn't going to write a review (enough praise has already been deservedly heaped upon) but then I saw two negative reviews and felt I had to speak up. Of course, everyone has a singular experience and if the restaurant had an off night, it had an off night.

However my husband and I had one of the top meals of the year at this wonderful place. The decor is beautiful, the service impeccable and the food outstanding. Our menu:

Tuna tartar shared - lemon vodka martinis - both perfect.
Steak au Poivre - granted not the most experimental of dishes to choose but man, this was fantastic. Every mouthful enjoyed with closed eyes, head back in near rapture (yes, we do love our food - my leftovers two days later were still magical ). A Merlot selected by our waiter Youssef Bessaoud was nectar from the gods. (A side note - Youssef is one of those career waiters one might encounter in Europe who is so smooth at his job he seems to glide two inches above the floor). Finally, Petits Fours for dessert, each little treasure better than the last.

We were also offered gratis car service back to our hotel - a nice and surprising ending to the evening. To sum up, this restaurant is a treasure and will deliver a truly special night out. Bon appetite.

Fantastic meal and service! They also have a car service to pick you up from your Boston hotel. The wine list is wonderful as well.
