My mum and I were just hoping for a pleasant dinner in a well regarded restaurant. However, unfortunately we did not enjoy our experience at Mistral. The service felt very rushed; it seemed like they wanted us in and out as fast as possible, so...More

The restaurant was located rather inconspicuously along Columbus Avenue almost on top of the busy Route 90 below. The décor inside was tasteful and understated. The food was just divine. Starting with the unusual yet scrumptious semolina bread we then had the most wonderful foie...More

Such an amazing food! The duck was amazing. I really enjoyed the place, even though I was all by myself. I ordered the foie gras and the duck and it was really good. With a glass of wine my bill was $98.

We love Mistral! The atmosphere is delightful and the food and service are top notch. We enjoyed the escargot and raviolis for apps and the Dover sole is always my choice for an entree! Never disappoints. Highly recommend this classic restaurant.

Ate dinner here on a Saturday night while visiting Boston and wasn't just blown away by my meal. I had the halibut which was good, but not $41 good. My husband had the duck and he really enjoyed it, so maybe I just ordered bad....More

There is no corkage fee I can imagine at a great restaurant like that- mistral would likely not allow it. If they did, yes, $40 or so sounds correct.
