During our stay in Boston, I felt that we were struggling to find a restaurant which ticked off all of the boxes, until now! The dining area was lovely. The atmosphere was full of energy. You could tell that people were enjoying themselves. The staff...More

There's just something about Chef Jamie Mammano's restaurants in Boston. One cannot compare Mistral to any other restaurant I've tried. The food and cocktails are top notch. And it's the small things too that separate Mistral from others...The service wasn't pushy. They took our coats...More

This is a very nice restaurant and the food is reasonably good. It is very normal food with nothing that is out of this world but still very well prepared. The service was good and the ambiance is quite comfortable.

This is a hip place that appeals to both young and old. It is fancy but not stuffy. We had a party of five celebrating a birthday. There is a large selection to choose from. The appetizers are too little and very pricey for what...More
