My wife and I BOTH ordered side Caesar salads and we BOTH got sick at the exact same time. The unpleasantness of that negates any positive comments we might have had about our entrees, the staff, or the level of service. Avoid it.

I really REALLY wanted to give this place a great review. I was optimistic when I walked in, the food looked so good, smelled great, and the menu was varied. I waited at the front counter for over 5 minutes, before anybody greeted me, watching...More

We were seated next to a table of 6 women enjoying a night out so it was a bit noisy. Atmosphere is otherwise relaxing. Was disappointed in the Fish Tacos. They were SO spicy that I couldn't even taste the fish.

We are delighted that we stopped at Misto! for the first time today. It definitely won't be our last time. All of the food was delicious -- the vegan wrap; caprese salad; zoodles; popcorn with truffle oil; salad with steak on top. The waitstaff and...More
