Mistral - Boston Ratings and Reviews

VERY disappointed in the service. I had been wanting to go here for a very long time and I chose a special occasion to do so. Food was great but it took 36 minutes for us to even get a drink and an over an hour to get our appetizers. Table surrounding us were sat after us and ate before us. Not pleased at all especially after paying what I did - I expected WAY better service. Most likely will not return......

Excellent evening---the menu offered many good choices and the food was terrific. Our party raved about the roast duck, lamb chops and the Branzino -- all different and all prepared superbly. The dining room was festive and a somewhat loud and the service, while attentive, was a bit stretched. None of that was a surprising on a busy Friday night before a three day weekend. Mistral was the place to be !

Had the escargot and the duck. Both very good. Also had the Mistral fries, that where not that great. If you are going to call some fries after your restaurant, they better be awesome, they where not. The best part was the desert, apple tart with ice cream that was amazing!!!

Brunch food was delicious as always but I was frustrated that we had to ask for our coffee cake starter after waiting for 30 minutes and seeing other tables get theirs. Usually they bring it out when you sit down.

Restaurant was really quiet due to the messy snow storm. Chloe and the other servers were AMAZING -- professional, helpful, couldn't do enough to make us feel special. This is the type of service we LOVE, non intrusive and magically appear at the moment. Chloe went WAY out of her way to do lots of extras, including getting a special drink concocted for my darling. Thank you so much for the corner booth, so we could sit close to each other on our anniversary--special. Thank you to the chef(s) who went out of their way to put a congratulatory message on our dessert -- made our evening fun. My beau spent 30 years as an executive and sous chef and said that filet was the best beef he's ever had. My duck was wonderful and we finished it for breakfast with eggs this morning. We were also surprised at how reasonable the check was even though I had the half bottle of Chateauneuf de Pape (thank you for having my favorite wine on the menu, which is rare)! It was our first time here, and we will certainly come more often. Top notch restaurant without the stuffiness. Didn't realize when I booked it's part of the same group as L'Andana in Burlington. Had a fabulous meal there previously. The food, service, people all A++++.

Going into Mistral you are greeted and brought to your table. The wait staff suggests a wine that perfectly matches what you will order. Mistral fries are a must as is the mussels appetizer. The special are always exciting and well prepared. We come here 4 times a year for the last 10 years and have never been disappointed.

The service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktails were great! The dishes were simple, well-portioned, and delicious, but not necessarily memorable. My date really enjoy her Maine Crab Ravioli. Definitely a date spot and I recommend it for a special occasion.

The quality of the food we had for brunch was poor. Two of us had eggs benedict. The eggs were not cooked according to request. There was not enough hollandaise sauce. The muffins were not toasted enough and were spongy.
There was no fruit at all on offer- On New Year's Day an exceptional fruit salad would have made sense.

Mistral is first rate in every way. The atmosphere is warm and romantic, the service is top notch , and the food is exquisite. Do not miss the warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The lightening show in the middle of a nor'easter added to the dramatic ambiance. The ride back to my hotel was an unexpected surprise. I would like to give special mention to Guillome for a wonderful experience.

The Crab Ravioli are as excellent now as they were so many years ago when they first appeared on the menu and were the highlight of the meal. The bread is also excellent, as was the steak. One minor note - the tuna tartare I found was a bit too vinegary - and I enjoy vinegar. One of us felt the linguini was a bit too al dente. Otherwise - the room is wonderful with high ceilings, a wonderful shade of grey that still feels classic. And the wine list has some value priced Red offerings that were appreciated - not always the case at higher end spots.

Excellent food and service. Waiter was very nice and provided good recommendations. The guy who picked up posted after felt a bit rushed but otherwise service was great. We got the special appetizer of the night, the hen dish, and the tenderloin. Everything was fantastic! The assorted dessert part the best way to finish our meal. Thank you!

Really enjoyed the overall dining experience. Cinnamon coffee cake muffins served as we arrived to table were delicious ! Lump crap omelette was a bit to fishy for me.....but everyone else completely enjoyed their meal. Wish I had tried the root vegetable hash, next time. Service was excellent! We'll be back !

The food was delicious especially the tuna tartar and crab ravioli appetizers. Went for my boyfriend's birthday so it was just the two of us and without asking they split the appetizers into 2 separate portions which we liked since we share everything anyway. The half-duck was truly half of a duck. It was a great portion and I happily took what I couldn't finish home. We shared the creme brulee for dessert, also amazing. All around the food was great. Mostly wine and cocktails, so if you're a beer drinker then you'll have to chose something else for the night. The food is worth it.

Mistral is my favorite special occasion restaurant. It is formal, fancy, but chic and fun, too. It never disappoints. The food is always excellent, and it is one of the only places where I can still get escargot. I love the simple but elegant decor, and that the staff is very accommodating and deferential.

A terrible service! The glasses of wine as soon as they are removed from the table as well as glasses of water ... The message was clear from the waiters !!! ... It's Sunday night and we did not want To finish late.
Considering the kitchen, there is nothing French on the plates. Concerning the desserts, the only experience of our table was the Profiteroles and the still disappointment. The dish is simple to make: these are cabbages (FRESH, not hard and probably made for a week or very poorly preserved as we were served ) in which there is ice cream, all washed with a Good hot chocolate sauce (not a preparation ready with 90% sugar and in addition COLD).
In short we were very disappointed and we disadvised this establishment which is not up to the note announced.

Mistral is my favorite brunch place-will be back soon!!! Eggs Benedict was cooked to perfection and a must try on the sticky buns! My friends enjoyed the bloody Mary's and their entree pics as well. A lovely restaurant.

A wonderful experience with attentive service. The portions are just the right size, while the quality and creativity of the dishes are superb. I took my fiancée there for her birthday and we loved our time there. I really enjoyed that there was no background music, just the noise of conversations being carried out. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I look forward to going back again.

The food was good: no question about that; but nothing was so exceptional as to justify the cost. In that regard, Mistral is over-priced. We enjoyed our appetizers (a pappardelle, garlic and mushroom combo and a salmon tartar dish). The short rib entree was quite tasty, but not really tender. I've had better. The Dover sole was very good indeed. Portions are more than ample. No skimping there. Desserts are wonderful and worth the calories. Service was outstanding and definitely added to the overall dining experience.
There is a nice selection of wines by the glass and they are reasonably priced for a Boston restaurant; but wines by the bottle... that's a story in itself. The selection is first rate. The prices, even for Boston, are preposterous. I expect a restaurant to mark up the price of a bottle of wine, but I had the feeling that Mistral is under the impression that if their wine prices are astronomical, customers will assume they are dining in a 5 star restaurant .
I enjoy conversation with friends while dining, but the noise level made normal conversation impossible. Stone floors and bare walls amplify the background din to an unpleasant cacophony. It's for that reason that I cannot recommend Mistral. And that's a shame, because the food, over-priced or not, is quite good.
