“One of my favorite restaurants in Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2011

fabulous food, great service, don't rely on the transportation offered to and from area hotels, it will spoil your dinner.

Creative menu, amazing pizzas to killer steaks, veggies, appetizers, it is worth the trip and the $$$.

Great for business, friends or any occasion.

“Not so good.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Excited to finally go here for a birthday dinner, as we have been to many other restaurants in the Boston area and heard good things about Mistral. It wasn't so good. We got 2 appetizers- rabbit/pasta and goat cheese/lettuce which were very good. However, our dinners were quite a disappointment. I order the veal/squash/mushroom dish - the veal was a little tough, and the dish just didn't taste good. Regret I didn't send it back for the price we paid. Another person got the lamb shank dinner which also was awful, as the lamb was very fatty and the flavors of the dish just didn't work. Two orders of beef tenderloin came out okay, but nothing special. Both could have used more sauce. Decided to cut our losses and skip dessert.
Service was very good. Place is beautiful.
I would recommend this place for drinks and appetizers only. Skip the dinners-- so not worth the money.

“Classy fine dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

Good place for late dinner; very fine food, excellent wines, good service. This is an attractive and popular high-end restaurant. The truffles in the pasta dish and a fine Brunello di Montalcino to accompany the dish are indicative of the choices available.

“The Best Beef Carpacio in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

I Love this restaurant, the atmosphere is romantic, yet has a great energy for socializing and people watching. And the food is superb. My latest visit I had the only pasta dish on the menu (this is a French restaurant, so I wasn't surprised that they don't have a lot of pasta dishes). Anyway, this dish was simple, yet it was probably one of the best pasta dishes I ever had. And the Beef Carpacio is the Best in Town. They have a nice wine list by the bottle and the glass. The service is good. The prices are not cheap, but well worth it. You absolutely need a reservation, you can take a chance if you don't mind sitting at the bar. But either way I highly recommend.
