We love Mistral! The atmosphere is delightful and the food and service are top notch. We enjoyed the escargot and raviolis for apps and the Dover sole is always my choice for an entree! Never disappoints. Highly recommend this classic restaurant.

Second great visit. Everything was superior. The ahi won ton appetizer was a fair sized mound of diced sushi grade ahi with ginger and soy wrapped and covered with cappachio slices of ahi. Unique combination and great. The six escargot were hot in a burgundy...More
