Great service, great food, would highly recommend!
We sat outside on a particularly chilly day. The food was great. The service a bit slower than usual but it was busy. Would have loved to have outdoor space heaters as it was cold under the tents. Will definitely be back as the food was exceptional!
Wonderful, best restaurant in town.
The food was excellent as usual as was the service and ambiance!
Great experience. We sat outside but it was cold under tent. They could really use some heaters.
Food was very good and creative. The waiter was pleasant and attentive.
One of our two orders was wrong, and we asked the item to be taken away, but they insisted on leaving it and bringing the correct item in addition - well-intentioned but not reading the customer.
We would definitely try this reataurant again.
We were at Mistral for brunch to celebrate my husband's BD. We chose indoor seating because of recent constant changing weather. We were a little anxicious about indoor dining but we were the only one there for most of the time. We ordered 3 dishes, Bacon Beignets, Burrata, and Eggs Benedict, to share. Each one of them was unique and delicious. Eggs were cooked to perfection. Coffee was served with warm milk, which was a nice touch. We are not big eaters so 3 dishes and Lemon Posset for dessert were plenty. Our wait staff was attentive. Watching energetic kitchen staff in open kitchen was fun too. Only downside of open kitchen was noise, but overall experience was great.
Great experience , I have Celiac disease and the chef was kind enough to mark up the menu to let me know what I could eat safely & how they could change a few things so I could have it :)
Went the week before this and the food and service was so outstanding we decided to come again. This time was subpar compared to the last time. Our server was dismissive, passive aggressive, and unenthusiastic. Very disappointing as the food is delicious.
This spot never disappoints!
Best food in Princeton.
The food was of a very high standard for the area; inventive and interesting dishes bursting with flavor. Service was incredibly stand-offish and off-putting.
The food was fresh and delicious, as it always is. Our server was terrific! The mixed drink and wine we had were perfect. Dessert was an adventure - they rarely disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Our one complaint had nothing to do with Mistral itself, so this is just a forewarning if you are particularly sensitive. There is a cigar shop next door and the smoke came all the way around the corner to our table on the parking lot side of the building. Had there been more smoke we could not have enjoyed the meal. Thankfully, the shop closed halfway through our meal. Mistral's indoor dining should not be affected by the cigar smoke, and their indoor/outdoor dining room should be fine at this time.
The sauce with the cod was a bit too salty.
The perfect restaurant to have a romantic dinner or a fun night out with friends. With an ever changing menu, Mistral is sure to please those who are willing to excite their palate.
I loved the food and service but you did not have heat lamps and we froze! What happened to the heat lamps?
I'm not one who leaves feedback or complains about service, but this may have been the worst server I've ever come across.
After initially ordering and finishing half of our drinks, the server walked back to the table and was surprised we were going to order dinner. "Oh, you want food?".
He was surprised we wanted to eat, at a restaurant.
He took our order. We finished our appetizer, delicious pork and shrimp won tons, and the waiter returned to take our dishes. At this time I had asked for a glass of wine. We didn't see the server again until he approached us with the check after we completed our dinners, cod and scallops. Instead of leaving we ordered the apple crisp dessert, and I went in to the bar to order after dinner drinks because I couldn't trust the server to do it.
Before the dessert was delivered, the waiter delivered spoons to the table which were tossed down in front of us.
I sat there angry we didn't go back to the restaurant we had been to two nights earlier and had a wonderful time at.
For the area and price, I shouldn't have to go to the bar to get my drinks, and my water glass should never be empty. It was filled only once when we first arrived. I sat there from the appetizer up to the time I went to the bar myself, thirsty.
Never once did the server visit the table to see how the dinner was. I'm glad the food was delicious because he would never have known if there was a problem since he didn't check in on us.
I cannot praise the food and cocktails enough, but that server ruined what was an excellent evening.
I will weigh the possibility of getting this waiter again before making a future reservation.
Food was absolutely fantastic. Wonton appetizer had great flavors & spiciness. Please find a way to warm the tables under the tent.
The food was delicious, and the ambience wonderful. The service was a bit slow, but that could have been because the waiter saw that we were engaged in conversation. Overall a lovely experience.
The food was disappointing and the service was extremely slow.
beautiful gorgeous food, excellent service, perfect ambiance, well selected music...
We felt very rushed by the server. She seemed overwhelmed with the amount of tables she had.
Creative, tremendous menu. Uneven service.
Always a date night favorite. Great food, drinks and service.
Delicious meal and amazing cocktails! I highly recommend a reservation here. Will be back soon!
It was great.
Great food and service I will go back again. They are doing the best they can given the circumstances and I want to support them as much as I can so I can co to us to enjoy Mistral for many years to come!
A beautiful, comfortable setting outdoors under the tent with "indoor" tables, rugs, etc. It would be so nice if they could bring out heaters to keep those tables a little warmer -- we came on a wet and rainy night. Food was outstanding, well-balanced in tastes -- oysters, scallops, ramen and duck; accommodations for gluten-free needs were attentive and thoughtful. Delicious, original cocktails -- although pricey!
A lovely atmosphere considering the semi-outdoor requirement for dining. (We were in the open room with the large fireplace.) The meal was paced well. All five of us (including a 10-yo) enjoyed their food tremendously. The staff was attentive and very mindful of safety needs. It was such a pleasure to celebrate someone's birthday in a special way.
They worked with us even though I messed up the reservation. They brought us out our dessert with happy anniversary on the plate. They took care to make sure we had a special evening.
After months of avoiding restaurant dining amid the COVID experience we chose Mistral because we were in the area and saw online that they had managed the spacing of outdoor dining very well. On arrival we were immediately comfortable with how they had spread out their outdoor diners and thrilled with the menu and drink options. They had several terrific and inventive cocktail options and the menu also offered lots of great choices. And then the quality matched the descriptions. We had a great meal and are very pleased to recommend this restaurant.
Favorite restaurant in Princeton. I see the ingredients and scratch my head sometimes but it always comes together like delicious magic.
This was a first date experience. The staff was accommodating for indoor dining (per my reservation). We sat near the kitchen area, so the noise even was a bit high, but that was the available table. Waiter was interactive and responsive to our requests.
The drinks were good, expected pricing for high end restaurant in Princeton.
Menu is eclectic. But we each found items we liked for dinner. Both our appetizers and entree plates were delicious. No room for dessert.
As this was a first date and we had a late reservation, we were left to talk each other’s ears off and never rushed out the door. But the waiter did check in on us, change out water bottles, clear away used plates and was again responsive for another round of drinks.
Overall excellent evening, both restaurant and company with me. So 5 stars.
Always love Mistral. I was disappointed in the entrees this visit. Stick to the sharing plates, always awesome!
Great service. High quality food. Menu not huge, but every single item on menu is executed well.
Mistral is a great option for lunch or dinner out in Princeton . The food is fantastic and the service is friendly and attentive. The hamburger with bacon jam is incredibly delicious! Outdoor dining seating is clean, airy and plentiful. Lots of great wine & drink specials to choose from. Mistral is one of our favorite restaurants. We look forward to our next visit soon.
Everything was outstanding. Food, drinks, and service were all great.
Great location, environment, service, and an exciting menu. Cocktails were great, food was great. The caramelle pasta with mushroom was especially incredible.
Food is excellent, all local and seasonal food.
