Met up with college friends here for dinner and drinks. Loved the ambiance, and it had a nice combination of college-aged and older adults (40s) so we didn’t feel out of place. There were some interesting drinks - but not the best I’ve had in...More

I joined seven other women in celebrating a good friend's birthday. The birthday girl-who is a Princetonian-chose Mistral. The restaurant is decorated with bare trees which look as if they're bending with the famous Mistral winds of France. There aren't many -just a few strewn...More

I was surprised by the small choice on the menu BUT the food and drinks were delicious. I wished they'd have more warm foods for vegetarians. The choices were mostly salads.

Definitely one of my best dining experiences ever. For all tuna lovers out there, the tuna carpaccio was the best. I also fell in love with the Parker rolls. I had the Peking duck for my main entree. I though it was also excellent. The...More

We visited for some pre-dinner Cocktails. Its a small and intimate bar, which was busy but you could still enjoy the conversations from friends. Apparently the restaurant is nice, but we did not get to try it.
