We've been coming to Manchester to eat for years with the kids after skiing, but this President's weekend was the first time in 20 years that it was just me and my husband. So dinner at Mistral's at Toll Gate was a perfect place to celebrate- us! The service by the host and waiter was very prompt; food from appetizers,... More

We (two couples) went for drinks and dinner. We found the wine slightly overpriced and the portions small. The service was slow with one in our party served after all the others. The setting is nice and it's good to do different things but there is better value in the area for your money.

We visit Mistral's whenever we are in Manchester,Vt. Most often we choose the chateaubrion for two and find the preparation and presentation to be exceptional! The host and staff always add to our enjoyment of this special occasion. We have dined here many times and have enjoyed our choice of meals each time. This is a special place to eat!

This is one of Vermont's BEST restaurants. The atmosphere is excellent, one is not too crowded, and no one rushes you out. While the flavour is French, all of their dishes are excellent. They have a particularly fine wine selection, and the waitstaff are well informed in this regard. Although it is close to VT Rt 11, it is peaceful... More

We have been here many times over the years but this was the best I can ever remember. We were there yesterday on a quiet Thursday night for a family birthday celebration. It was absolutely spectacular from start to finish. Very attentive and appropriate but not overbearing service. Our table overlooked the beautiful waterfall/creek. And the food, oh my! For... More

After all the reviews, was looking forward to this dinner. Sauce on pork was amiss to the point of returning after an awkward exchange with inexperienced waiter. Enjoyed the atmosphere, indeed is dimly lit and quite cozy. Most staff very accommodating and professional. Left bank cocktail excellent, impressive wine list. Food needs perfecting. I d give it another chance.

This is a French restaurant?? I don't think so! The building was in disrepair. We visited in late August for our anniversary dinner and the air conditioning was not working very well. So, the hostess came around to all the tables near the Windows as ours was in the corner with a view of the brook. Said the brook would... More

This was our second visit to this very special restaurant. Go and be prepared for a dining experience to remember. We celebrated our 60th anniversary after researching all of the " top restaurants in th Manchester area" . Our waiter Bill added to the experience. A true professional. Can't say enough about our satisfaction!

Dining at Mistral's was an exquisite experience in French cuisine fine dining. The wine list is very remarkable. I had no idea how remarkable until I spotted a wall covered with coveted Wine Spectator Awards going back more than two decades. The dining room is directly on a brook of gently falling water. The wall is a full length of... More
