This place is a gem. Their happy hour menu is to-die-for. Sure, maybe it's not the best drink specials, but the small plates are delicious. They marinate their olives in-house, and the pretzel bites are GREAT. It's a really reasonable a filling portion for the price and a great location for meeting up after work. Love their wine selection.

Had a very nice dinner at Mistral Kitchen. The food was all very tasty and original. The owner was very friendly and on top of things.

I would give this place a full five except the vibe was kind of dull. Maybe that was just the night I was there. The food was excellent. I had the merluza (fish) as a main and chocolate beet cake as dessert. Both were really delightful.

The food was awesome. They had some unique wines on their list that were great. Our good friends know the owner/chef so we spent some time with him. He seams like an awesome guy and the staff seamed to have a great relationship with him. They all looked like they were enjoying the night.

Wonderful place, nice atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food. My only complaint is that the entrance is very hard to locate (look for the rusty slab). We walked by it twice as did the people we were meeting.

Went there with business colleagues for happy hour cocktails and apps. Had a glass of albarinho which was quite nice. Colleagues had a bourbon based cocktail which they said was good.....then we all had a slowly sipped shot of Pappy Van Winkle's 15 year old at $75 per (hey, there was a customer there and he wanted it.....). I'm generally... More

Took forever to get a drink. Also ordered bread and it showed up first. The house drink was bitter and had to be sent back. Sat at the kitchen bar near the entrance and the employees were playing around and ducking down to eat food. Ordered gnocchi and it WAS tasty, so the only plus to the evening. Ordered a... More

My husband and I dined here for a late Valentine’s Day celebration. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was pretty dead. It started to fill up by the time we left, which was around 8:30pm. We started out with our staple favorite appetizer, the cheese plate. Delicious as always but it didn’t come with very much bread so... More

We came for happy hour and ordered fois gras (very good) and oysters (terrible). They put the mignonette IN the shells (instead of on the side like most oyster bars). Well, I hate vinegar with oysters, so I found them inedible.
