After careful review, I would have to say I can not recommend this restaurant. Despite a few highlights, the design of restaurant, very friendly hostess Emily and charming and helpful busboys it is overpriced for the service and food. My burger was severely undercooked despite...More

Attentive service and a nice selection of tapes plates, salads, and sandwiches for lunch . A good selection of wines and beers as well. Good location.

The physical setting is terrific inside and the staff are gracious and competent. The menu is not easy to navigate - totally untraditional. Portions are generous. I had a tuna tartare dish that was okay. For dessert I had a pot de creme that was...More

Truly inventive small plate bistro. Pick four or five dishes for you and you date to share. I promise they will all be good, and always something extraordinary.

My husband frequently takes business associates to dinner here, since the sharing style and variety of food options (including many vegetarian-friendly items) makes it a good pick for groups getting to know one another. I've been dying to give it a try, so we made...More

Mistral is so amazing. I was a little concerned about the menu when I first looked at it... but I basically ordered a few items with friends and loved everything.

A bit disappointing lunch after having grilled squid salad and roast beef sandwich aus jus. The salad was quite tasty and a lot better than I expected but the roast beef sandwich was soggy and lacked umami even with the jus.

It is fine dining place, and I do not think it is dog friendly, since patio is enclosed. However across the parking lot there is a square where you can get food at Witherspoon grill and eat there at the table while your dog... More

Savor and share chef Scott Anderson and Ben Nerenhausen's inventive, culturally influenced cuisine with a superlative emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and inviting flavors. Mistral's bar features an eclectic craft cocktail menu that is both unexpected and attuned to chef Anderson's local and seasonal ethos.
