We love coming to this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service impeccable. Eric makes sure that you have the best experience and I love the specials. On the weekend they have live music and lately they have been playing contemporary songs mixed with oldies. Really fun and makes the whole dining experience more like a night out. We will definitely come again.

Went for brunch and had the Croque Madam which was delicious and I highly recommend it. Also the Mimosa was delicious too. My husband had the French Toast again. He loves it and would recommend it also for kids and adults.

Everything at the Le Mistral was excellent , as always! Food was delicious ( we got Florentine eggs Benedict and Burger, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee). Service was outstanding, even that restaurant was full. Thank you for wonderful brunch!

The food was delicious, the music delightful, and the service warm and prompt without being intrusive. The restaurant was accommodating with our puppy and gave us an outdoor seat.
A really cute aside - Eric the owner spotted a little girl on the sidewalk enthralled by the guitar player and gave her some sorbet on the house while she watched. Hope to become regulars here

Lovely restaurant with old french bistro decor. Limited outdoor seating but the restaurant can open it's front walls, making the interior very open-air - so I would not hesitate to sit inside - although I am vaccinated.

Great place, amazing food and fantastic live guitar player/singer to enhance the ambiance. We were a party of six celebrating my B’day, it was midweek, restaurant not very busy, ambiance very much like authentic French bistro. Escargot was delish, salads fresh and well dressed, 2 of us ordered steak, it well prepared as requested with amazing sauce. Deserts are amazing. Best of all, our 4 year old granddaughter danced to the music of the wonderful singer/player and it was appreciated by all. We had a wonderful gourmet dinner that felt like we landed in Paris.

Review

Dining at Café le Mistral was a wonderful experience. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant — combined with the lovely live music, delicious food, and excellent service — made the whole evening perfect. The staff was very attentive to detail, checked in with us often, and made sure we had a pleasant evening. The owner, Eric, was also very kind and present the whole time; he also made sure to check in with us, give recommendations for food, and made us feel very welcome. All of the tasty food was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. We ordered the escargot, duck liver, grilled Spanish octopus, and salad with Roquefort for appetizers; the duck breast and veal for entrées; and the lava cake, panna cotta, and crème brûlée for dessert. The entire dinner experience made us feel like we were in an authentic French restaurant while being in the middle of Brooklyn. We will definitely return and highly recommend this place if you are looking for an authentic French restaurant with live music and mouthwatering food!

Café Le Mistral is, without a doubt, the best place for authentic French food. Even before walking through its doors, you are enchanted by its elegance and by the rhythm of the delightful Bossa Nova music played inside by a variety of talented musicians. The ambiance is a first-class ticket to classy Paris. Vintage-looking mirrors adorn the walls, adding a je ne sais pas to the culinary experience. The food is just beyond delicious--world-class. Every dish is prepared with the best products. As an appetizer, I had the best paté that I have ever tried in my lifetime. It was fresh, made right after I made my order. As the main dish, I enjoyed a high-quality Alaskan King salmon. It was fresh, tender, and exquisite. The wine selection is simply unique. The owner put both his passion and many years of experience working in the wine production business to select every single bottle meticulously. It showed in the bottle of Merlot I had. If you're looking for the best place for a lovely experience overall, Café Le Mistral is the place to go.

We have been to Le Mistral a few times and every time the food is excellent! Authentic French with attention to detail and flavor at a very reasonable price. The best French Fries in Brooklyn. The last time we were there we asked the owner Eric if he serves a Peche Melba (Peach Melba). Our favorite French dessert but hard to find. He said if we bring fresh peaches he will make it for us, so last night he did and it was divine! He made the adult version for us and the kids version for our son. It was better than we remembered. I also had the tuna tartare which was excellent and highly recommended the salade nicoise. If you’re looking for a fantastic and classy french restaurant (they have great live classical music every night) then this is it! And if you want to try the delicious Peche Melba, bring a peach 😊

Food is very good. Service could be better. There were literally 3 tables to serve, however they found a way to charge my card for different bill ( took 5 days to get the fonds back)

This was my first time dining at Le Mistral. I came along with a French friend who is VERY particular about eating French food in the US. She was not disappointed and nor was I. Service was stellar, polite and attentive. We didn’t have any cocktails but had coffee and it was very good. We came for late brunch and started with the pate and the salmon tartar, both wonderful and would definitely order again. We both had the Eggs Benedict and our other friend had the crab cake- all excellent. We finished with the creme brûlée and poached pear (I forget the proper name!) dessert and both were incredible.
I am very particular about where I dine, especially in the neighborhood and I will make a regular effort to dine here! I felt very at home. My Frenchie will be back, too.
Thank you for a lovely brunch!

We had a lovely dinner. The pâté was not my absolute favorite but the beet salad was wonderful, and the cassoulet was fantastic. My friend really enjoyed her steak frites too. We went early so that it would be quiet and it was, with friendly, attentive and pleasant service. It has the ambience of a restaurants in France without incurring airfare.

A really nice dining experience
A group of seven of us had dinner at Le Mistral. It was the first time for all of us and no one was disappointed. The room is lovely, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent. Between us, we thoroughly enjoyed the onion soup, the house salad, steak frites, chicken, mussels, salmon, and bouillabaisse. The price was reasonable for the food and wine. Each of us said we would return.
