Mistral is deservedly viewed as one of Boston's premier restaurants. Outstanding selection of well-prepared and delicious dishes and outstanding wine list. Servings are not huge, so feel free to order multiple courses. Service is attentive and prompt. The cavernous space gives a sense of grandeur, but also is a bit of an echo chamber for the high-powered clientele. Understandably expensive,... More

We had booked at Mooo, but due to some maintenance issues, we were contacted and asked if we would consider Mistral or Sorrelina instead. The server acknowledged our flexibility and we were given a complimentary pasta course. The food was exquisitely prepared and the décor in the restaurant was great. It was VERY busy, no doubt because of the issue... More

Mistral is one of those restaurants that never disappoints. We go to Mistral when we want to have a nice fancy meal and the quality and service are always consistent. The restaurant floor is lively and can be loud, but we always have a nice time.

Special occasion restaurant: We went for husband's birthday and happened to meet a couple also there celebrating a birthday on the same day. The lighting gives a rosy glow to everyone in the place, so it looks like a restaurant frequented by the beautiful people. Delicious seafood, especially Dover sole, albeit pricey. Unobtrusive service also appreciated.

I love the huge windows and graciousness of Mistral. We don't always find great food with a gracious/spacious atmosphere. For me, this restaurant has it all.

Mistral is one of our favorite restaurants in the city of Boston. Sophisticated without being prententious, it offers imaginative menus of finely-curated food highlighted by out of the ordinary spices. You can detect the Middle Eastern and Northern African blends in their offerings and never have we had a dish that hit a false note. This restaurant is aimed at... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
