This was a private event, but the food prep was very good. Especially like the minced lamp starters.

This restaurant came recommended by our hotel. I asked for a high end dinning experience. We were shuttled over before our theatre show. We were greeted by the owner who asked if there was anything we had allergies for or requests for. I said no allergies and what would he recommend. He replied the 7 course tasting menu. We agreed...

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.....).

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
