We were in Boston for business, looking for a nice restaurant for dinner - close to our hotel in the Back Bay area, and found Mistral through the TripAdvisor City Guide. Mistral had great reviews, and the menu looked great. Service was great - we arrived for our reservation, but 2 people in our party were running late, so we were able to enjoy a drink in the bar while we waited for the rest of our party. So nice of them to hold the table for us for 30 minutes. The food was very VERY good. The tuna tartare and beef carpaccio both got rave reviews from the table. Entrees were also very good. The wine list and drink menu is varied and appealing. We'll be back in Boston in October, and plan to return to Mistral for another great evening.
