A group of friends and I had brunch here for the first time. The potato pancake was really good, as was the coffee. The server fluidly handled 7 of us and made sure we all had everything we needed. Would go back again soon!

Very elegant and convivial restaurant and we had an excellent lunch experience. "Mistral" belies its namesake wintry wind and should be called "Zephyr" instead as its service and staff are warm, welcoming, and courteous. The interior is very pleasant and attractive as well. We shared 3 terrific appetizers: the scallop crudo, tuna tartare, and egg toast. The scallops and tuna... More

Second time at Mistral, as good as ever. Rumor had it that Mistral were getting mainstream - but they are back to their roots: delicate and tasty plates for sharing. Four people shared 4 starters (the scallops are simply outstanding) and 8 mains (the liver pate, the Hen Egg and the skate were superb). A highly recommended place - enjoy... More

Fashionable food, fashionable ambiance, fashionable service. Everything about Mistral screams, "Take my picture!" Great for a special date or a business meal. We ate as a good sized group, so in one visit we tried a range of dishes. Every plate was well prepared and beautifully presented, and the flavors suggested all ingredients were fresh and carefully selected. We were... More

We started by sharing marinated olives, carrot chickpea fritters, dirty arancini - all excellent. Our main course was the short-rib wellington, an advertized signature dish for two that lived up to expectations. Preliminary beer and prosecco in the bar, and wine with dinner were chosen from a good drinks list. Service in bar and restaurant was excellent.

As luck would have it, I 'found' this place on Trip Advisor while looking for a restaurant that served brunch on Sunday. I am not from the area and had the opportunity to meet my son for 2 hours (who happened to be in the area). The atmosphere, the wait staff, the natural lighting, the décor and especially the food...

Three family members and I went to Mistral for brunch on a Sunday in mid-February. This restaurant has a lot going for it, but there were too many negatives for an overall good review. I'll start with the positives. This is a pretty place, with an open, spacious feel; a fun-to-watch open kitchen; an outdoor patio with heat lamps and... More
