Mistral - Boston Ratings and Reviews
While we enjoyed the overall experience of Mistral, the cuisine came up a bit short. My girlfriend's Halibut came out dry and the roasted duck was just average, but certainly not worthy of the asking price. Drinks were very good and reasonably priced but I would stick to small plates and the basics here.
Exceptional in every way.
Entry point to any restaurant can set the tone for the evening. Mistral has perfected the Guest experience- greeted with a welcome one would expect from a good friend. Escorted to table promptly. Server touched table almost immediately, looked happy to be there and assist with our choices. The Menu offers choices for almost any desire. Our main course was the Dover Sole. Cooked to perfection, the only place in Boston to enjoy this meal. Finish with dessert, Chocolate Torte. A decadent finish to a great meal.
There is a reason Mistral is celebrating 20 years of truly "fine dining".
Thank you Mistral!!!
Appetizers were phenomenal, but the main dish was lacking for the price. Only so-so. My main issue with this restaurant which prevents a higher star rating is that the actual feel and layout of the the restaurant in person belies the warm and comfortable ambiance conveyed by the web-site.
Cold hard flooring and columns, one main mostly open room, super high ceilings, not very plush seating, packed in to tight quarters. If you LIVE in Boston, this is fine restaurant. If you are traveling to Boston for fine dining, look elsewhere.
One of my favorite spots in Boston! I've been twice; once on a date and this last time, I took my Mom for Mother's Day. We ordered the Missing Link Cocktail and Sangria, Tuna Tartare as an appetizer, and the Cornish Game Hen and Beef Tenderloin Flatbread for entrees. Everything was absolutely delicious and I would recommend them all.
Mistral is a well managed restaurant serving high quality food in a beautiful setting. I has garnered a strong following over the years and continues to operate at a high level. It is a bit pricey, so for many patrons it will be special occasions rather than an everyday spot. The bar does a consistent business, especially towards the end of the week, albeit it can be noisy. If you haven't been, certainly give it a shot, especially if it is a special occasion and you want fine dining and service.
What a great find! This was the first time we were in Boston and I'd planned our dinner at Mistral. Once we were shown to a table we preferred, the service was superb, the food truly outstanding (creative, fresh, interesting), just sorry we didn't have enough time to try the deserts, as they looked spectacular (we had a concert to rush to). Next time we will allot much more time for this fine place to dine in. Highly recommend!
My fiancé and I decided to go to Mistral while on a weekend date in Boston. First, the service was very good and Meghan, our server was very attentive as were her team members. The decor was nice but we weren't big fans of the uniforms. I know they matched the decor but were kind of drab.
I started with the asparagus soup with crab. It was ok but not a lot of flavor. As asparagus soups go, it was acceptable but I should have gone with the foie gras. My fiancé had the salad which was also ok.
For a main course, I had the duck and my fiancé had the halibut. Both proteins were perfectly cooked but the duck with mushroom risotto was the star of the two. Great flavor and nice crisp skin.
We'll definitely try Mistral again and will look forward to trying something new.
A significant disappointment considering the reputation!
The drinks (martinis) and the bread were by far the best offerings!
The brioche on the foie gras was antediluvian! Probably cooked moons ago and not even re-warmed; couldn't cut it even with a knife.
Same comment can be made about the Chou of the profiteroles; the ice cream was Friendly's!
The "16 ounces" veal chop underwent major slimming diet for months before ( 2 diners decided to split and had a hard time dividing the "left-overs")
The Dover sole (outrageously priced) was overcooked, etc.
Major deterioration since last visit!
Disappointing. Mistral has a great reputation but it doesn't live up to the hype.
We went for Sunday brunch.
The room is very nice. High ceilings, big windows, lots of light. Seating is comfortable, cushioned benches and cushioned chairs. We both sat on bench.
The hostess wanted to seat us next to another party although there were plenty of empty tables.
We requested a different table and she was pleasant about the move.
The food is what was disappointing.
They serve a complimentary coffee cake. This was ok, but nothing exceptional. Drake's coffee cakes are just as good if not better.
I ordered a Bloody Mary which came in a nice tall glass with garnishes. Again, acceptable, not special.
We ordered the cinnamon bun, which has a lot of great reviews on-line. Again, this was acceptable, not special.
We ordered SMOKED SALMON BENEDICT, ROAST ASPARAGUS, CITRUS HOLLANDAISE and
ROSEMARY HAM & GRUYERE OMELETTE, SHALLOT CONFIT.
Both were good. Again, nothing exceptional.
For the price and given the reputation, we were expected a little more WOW factor, some exceptional food, some unique flavors and taste sensations.
As always, the food was delicious. We have been there many times and have always had very professional wait staff. This time, our waitress was awful! She spilled red wine all over the table and sprayed my girlfriend. Her attitude sucked! She was annoying and was not friendly or professional. I ordered Dover Sole and was shocked at the price of $68.00!!!! The waitress never mentioned the price and it was NOT worth the price !!! I feel we should be compensated in some way, since we dine there often. Thank you!
We were celebrating 2 birthdays and we had a fantastic time. The food was outstanding but expensive - my friend and I split the Dover Sole (perfect portions and delicious) but don't understand why Dover Sole is as expensive as it is. Guillaume, our waiter, was fabulous. The ambience was perfectly suited to a celebration. Mistral was the perfect place for a birthday celebration.
My appetizer was exceptional. I had the tuna tartar and would order it again. My entree was a major disappointment. I had a beef tenderloin which was cooked perfectly to medium rare. It was soft but had very little flavor. It was accompanied by asparagus and horseradish mashed potatoes. I was looking forward to some kick in the potatoes. Unfortunately, both the steak and the mash had zero flavor to them. I was underwhelmed and expect more when paying that high of a price for a steak.
One of the worst service experiences.. The waitress took my food while I was eating, and when I asked her to leave the plates since I wasn't finished, she left my empty plate near me and took away the almost full shareable plates from the table, leaving me with an empty place, and a piece of bread (which I was going to use with the tartar she just took away) in my hand. Needless to say I felt so stupid..
She also took my partner's wine before he finished it and almost made him take another glass. At the end of the evening we were both so upset!!
Worst thing is that I emailed the restaurant and never heard back!!
We were disappointed in this restaurant. The food was good, but not outstanding. My fish was dry and not very tasty. We ordered two bottles of wine for the table. The red wine was left on the table and was consumed by those drinking it. For those of us who were drinking white, she poured wine, then put the wine to chill in a place that was out of our sight. She did not check in again until we called her over as our meal was ending and asked if we had any more wine. With the prices that are charged, we expected excellent food and service.
