bacon beignets always wonderful.
rye spaetzle that came with duck very delicious, superb texture.
totally failed pupusa: starchy flavorless grey blob, none of the golden cheesy exquisiteness of the real thing. It you are going to interpret, do so with flair and flavor.
roasted cauliflower tasty but not extraordinary.
presentations of some dishes seem crowded and confused: the tuna toast delivered to us accidentally (did not look appealing at all to me), the cauliflower, the pupusa.
I remember this place being more exciting.

Sadly just not an interesting menu. Some of the dishes sound great but just lack any real flavor. The olives serve no purpose in the scotch olives. Just serve a merguez meatball. The cod en croute had no croute and was served in a salty tomato broth. Tomato wasn’t even listed on the menu. Def not heading back.

My husband and I spent our recent date night at Mistral and it was next level amazing! We opted to get 7 small plates and truly everything we ate was delicious. Make sure you check out the Brussels Sprouts, Papaya we ate outside and the tables were distanced and all staff were wearing masks. I think my favorite aspect of the meal was the service, our waiter was excellent. If you are looking for a safe night out and delicious food you will not be disappointed.

Overall my experience was pleasant. However there was an incredibly rude waiter who initially came to our table. Our third person was unable to attend and I explained this to the waiter who rude snatch the paper menu up and crumpled then walked away in a huff. Interestingly he did not return to our table and we had a different much nicer waiter.

The only thing I am going to vent about is the pupusa; $12 for ONE pupusa? The ingredients to make these are CHEAP (masa, water, cheese, and beans) and it's typically $2.50 to $3 max for ONE (I eat them all the time) but Mistral is charging $12 for one? That's robbery. The shrimp and pork dumplings also reminded me of something TGI Fridays serves.

Food was very good but the waiter almost ruined the experience. He was rude, curt and didn’t make any effort to be pleasant. The busboy was very nice and helpful. It is very unfortunate for the restaurant to employ a waiter so unprofessional.

The food was good, but service was horrendous. After finishing our dinner we waited for 25 min for our server to show up. No one ever came to check on us, to see how was our food. It was my birthday, I was so disappointed with the service that we didn’t even want to order dessert.

Mistral was very good but is of course Princeton pricey! The staff was very good and friendly. Sitting outside would have been better. Expensive drinks but again you are going to pay because it’s Princeton. Would we go again, probably not.

We had a great brunch in a lovely outdoor seating area. The menu was sufficiently varied, the dishes well executed, and the service just right. I was impressed with the stylish outdoor seating - plenty of greenery, outdoor carpeting, and well-spaced tables. Will have to return for dinner.

Let me start by saying that the only reason I rated ambience low was not their fault. We have frequented Mistral many times but because of Covid, the seats by the kitchen bar were gone and there were only 4 tables inside in our section. It truly changed the ambience and liveliness for us. That aside, all else was wonderful!
Drinks were good, all the small plates and three of the large plates
Were split by all and we loved them!!
Service was attentive but not intrusive . The wavy steak large plate was fabulous! The steak was super tender and had great flavor!! Other standouts were the papaya and crab salad and the beef carpaccio!!!
Always love going there!!

Ambience was a little weird, but that was because we were outside due to covid-19--it couldn't be helped. But the food was amazing and the waiters were knowledgeable with all food and drink questions. I love this place!

A lovely night. Mistral is managing the COVID challenge very well - cleaning protocols in place and consistent. The seating arrangements are wonderful...we should always be able to eat in the streets. 😁
Our meal was great...the wings (yum), Brussel sprouts (double yum) and a shared medium rare burger. PERFECTION.
Fantastic service, effortless and easy. We will be back. SOON.
