We attended dinner with a large group. We started out at the bar while waiting for company. Cocktails were fab. Dining area quite roomy but intimate. Great atmosphere, food and presentation.

We picked Mistral because our daughter’s best friend was the chef’s niece. Kind of a silly reason, but I’m glad we did. Service was excellent. The wait staff was there when we needed them but not intrusive. The Cornish game hen was amazing. Mistral is...More

We love Chef Jamie Mammano’s restaurants, and Mistral is true to form. Classy atmosphere with high ceilings, long bar, and nice Provence touches in the pastel colors and large translucent pix separating the bar from the main restaurant. Casual elegance. The food is great! A...More
