“Oh, Mistral you let me down.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The service here was a definite bummer. Slow and unattentive. When the food came, unfortunately I was underwhelmed. Just didnʻt hit it out of the ballpark when it came to giving me big flavors.

“Great experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Fantastic! We went on Christmas eve and by the end of the evening we decided this would be our Christmas eve tradition. The owner stopped by several times to chat and make sure everything was good; he made us feel like we were the most important people there.
Great food, great (albeit expensive) wine and great service. We spent three hours ( intentionally) savoring the food.

“Great for foodie guests”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

..or if you are a foodie yourself. Intimate but not quiet. Excellent service. Friendly. Inventive food. Has not disappointed in about 6. Visits. Pastry chief is outstanding...she even came to our table to explain how she had made our dessert when we inquired. Do save room. Wine list is unusual, so don't be afraid of asking for a recommendation.

Great food. Attentive wait staff. Great decor... Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and will stop by for what looks like some good cocktails.

“Fun to watch the chefs in action!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We visited Mistral Kitchen recently and just wanted to have a drink and perhaps an appetizer. We were seated by choice at the bar which gave us prime viewing of the chefs and cooks in action. It was amazing to watch the process of starting the meat, duck, and chicken on a skewer in a hot well of heat and then move to a cast iron pan in the wood fired oven. Then decorated artfully the plates are passed to the wait staff to be delivered. We enjoyed a delicious butternut squash soup and a salad with sauteed mushrooms and delicata squash. Both were excellent. The owner/chef came by and introduced himself, and even remembered our names as we left the restaurant.
Only down side is that it is quite expensive! Save your money and enjoy a fine dining experience.
