We were dining as a group of four friends who haven't seen each other in a while and we chose Skippack as a central meeting place. Two of us had dined at the Hotel before and enjoyed it. We were treated so well, our waiter gave us the space we needed as girlfriends but was attentive enough that we didn't need to call him over to get us things. Everyone was happy with their food and drinks. Desserts were amazing: a creamy pumpkin pie in a ramekin and a tart made with apples and walnuts. Perfect place to eat and catch up with friends.

The menu is limited and due to my food allergies, I found it slightly frustrating. I only ate soup and a salad due to the limited menu but it was quite tasty. My husband on the other hand can eat anything so he really enjoyed it. I'd say as long as you don't have dairy and allergies are not vegan, this would be a great place to dine. The service was absolutely amazing and the environment was very nice.

Special menu with no consideration for allergies so... no flavor . Dishes did not come out together. Had to ask for bread, pepper, steak knife, etc... tables plain no flowers or anything... very blah . Unimpressed!

From the Valentines menu, the rice that came with the scallops was heavy and pasty. My fiancé’s chicken was dry and the side was way too busy for her liking. Our drinks were overpriced. I ordered one from the specialty menu, and it was 12.00 for a thimble full of grapefruit juice. The bar was very busy, and the staff was raving through to drinks. They didn’t know what a Bahama Mama was so they guessed and we got orange juice and Malibu. Just terrible. Got engaged that day, and was looking forward to a fine dining experience. Service was good, but food and drink was awful.

Came here for Valentine's Day dinner but did not realize they had a special menu and did not see it advertised before hand, however, the food was outstanding and it was our first time here and will return.

Been fans for a long time. We mostly do Bella Rossa, especially at the bar. This was only our second meal upstairs at Mistral. Love the whole place; always excellent food and friendly service

We've had dinner here many times but we were disappointed in our meal this visit.
We both had the chicken, other than a very strong thyme taste it had no taste & mine
was not tender.

Birthday brunch for my wife. This is the 4th time we have been here for brunch. Service was again very attentive but not intrusive. Wide variety of food and everything was excellent. Recommend the eggs Benedict and gnocchi.

We were there for brunch and it was beautifully presented in a buffet style. There was a wonderful selection of breakfast and lunch entrees which were perfectly prepared and which we all enjoyed. There was a separate dessert table with an amazing array of pastries which were prepared onsite by the HF pastry chef. This was our second time there and we will be back.

It was New Year’s Eve - crowded with a lot of people at the bar. We ate in the trolley area which was cozy. The food was fantastic and the wait staff was generally accommodating. I’ve had the experience but not a restaurant that I’ll look to visit again any time soon.

We come there often. One of wife's favorite places. All was very good or better. Only comment was the pizza bread was not good at all; hard, cold, dry. Seems it may have been frozen and reheated a little. But since it is free, and the only concern we noticed, not a real big deal. And the service is the best.
We will keep returning.

The food was delicious .
one of the appetizers was a little misleading the bacon wrapped shrimp there's three shrimp and they charged a lot of money for it .was very good but not worth the cost.
The restaurant was not crowded but we still had to wait a long time for our food.
We will definitely go back again just not anytime soon.

It was just OK. The place was nice, but nothing special. The food was OK - I did not think there was a lot of variety and again, it was just fine. I don't know if it was worth the price. I did not even take the leftovers of my main course. I would probably not dine here again, but nothing terrible to say. Service was good, but not great.

The food here is consistently good & great service. Family of 5 enjoyed, the cheese tray & shrimp for appetizers and I had a tomato linguine with clams and shrimp as an entree and it was excellent. Nice portion of food also. We all had leftovers. Fantastic selection of desserts as well. We were all happy with our meal!

Food was excellent! My husband and I both had seafood dishes and they were cooked perfectly! I was also pleasantly surprised at the many options for my kids, as they are pretty picky. It was rather noisy, with both a speaker playing music over our heads and the general noise from the room. Overall, we really enjoyed the restaurant and will be back again in the near future!

Extremely noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation without elevating our voices. Food was fair with a limited menu. One entree had excessive garlic.

My friend and I have had lunch many times at Bella Rossa. However, this time was disappointing. My friend ordered a garden salad and to her disappointment the salad was gritty. She kept eating it in hopes of not getting grit. That didn't happen. She finally spoke to the waiter about it. The restaurant did remove the charge for the salad from our bill. Greens need to be washed!

It was overall good. The food was okay but no big deal. 2 of us got the special which was Branzino in a mushroom creme sauce which was tasty but not fileted very well. The tail was still on (to make it seem larger than it really was I guess) and we both got a lot of bones. I always expect a couple but I must have gotten 15 or so bones, which was a bit of a drag. The drinks were on the pricey side for the size that they were and our total bill was over $185 dollars for 2 of us. We did have soup and dessert but it was still high given the quality and quantity of our meal. I guess we might entertain going there once more but not in the near future.

Sat on the patio on a nice Friday evening. Got there early, 5:30, and enjoyed the sunset. Service was very good, mussels may be the best I have ever had. Save room for dessert!
