Nice casual nowadays can include jeans and a clean shirt with or without a jacket. Mistral's ambience appears pretty formal but once you get beyond that you'll find a professional but relaxed staff. You have all the ingredients for a fine dinner...menu, wine list, service. My "black mussels" appetizer was extraordinary. The duck with mushroom risotto perhaps just too much... More

This may be the long-standing best restaurant in Boston. The food is outstanding, the wine list exhaustive and the service impeccable. You'll pay for it all, but well worth the treat.

Besides that the resturant... More

Mistral is a restaurant that is owned by the same corporation as Sorellina. I ate at Sorellina two days earlier, and given my Sorellina experience I was not looking forward to my visit. In retrospect, the experience was fine. The negatives are that it is loud and on the expensive side. The positives are that the space is nice and... More

I decided to have dinner and chose Mistral due to the high ranking in TripAdvisor. The starter ravioli crab was very nice but the pizza was ok, average at best. Overall a bit disappointed but certainly a place I would recommend

One of a favorite meeting restaurant, amazing wines, hallucinating Lamp chops and one comment, they will stay open to serve you and pamper you to the end...

The brunch here is delicious. I love the cinnamon rolls and the crispy bacon. The benedict is amazing. The sauce is perfect. Great atmosphere for dining. The drinks are superb. I always see alot of private events there so it's quite popular. Romantic but I use to always take my kids there too. Definitely good for desserts too.

Thank LolaUMass14

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
