The design of Mistral is both elegant and casual, resonating with the ambiance of Provence as arched floor to ceiling windows drench the room with light.<br />Mistral’s dramatic dining room serves dinner nightly and Sunday Brunch. In our bar and comfortable lounge area we also offer craft cocktails and fine wines to compliment Chef Mammano’s menu. <br />Mistral’s private dining room, Le Salon du Mistral, accommodates 60 seated and up to 80 guests for a reception.

"It is rare to find a restaurant of Mistral's vintage which continues to evolve and maintain such high standards of service, ambience and food. Our party of four was seated quickly on a very busy night. Our server, Andre, provided a high level of assistance with charm and professionalism. Starters were tuna tartare, lambs lettuce, fois gras stuffed ravioli and mains were local pork chop, salmon, lamb and dover sole. All were well prepared and among the best I've tried. Partnered with a Pinot Noir from Oregon and a cheese plate to finish, the evening was complete."

"There are no signs outside the MFA to let you know that one of the finest eating experiences resides inside. The room is beautifully appointed. The menu on Thursday lunch this week featured amazing crab cakes and salmon with the most wonderful puree of yam, roasted Brussels sprouts and nuts. A wine from Spain completed a truly great experience. You can actually hear the conversation at your table without shouting - a rare treat indeed."

Awarded a Michelin star five years consecutively, Luce features an urban setting that is modern and sophisticated, yet stunningly warm and inviting. The main dining room features floor-to-ceiling-windows adorned with sheer metallic gold curtains. Hand-blown Italian bubble-like lamps provide a flattering glow to the dark tropical wood accents and elegantly appointed tables. The globally inspired New American menu reflects the bounties from the surrounding farms of San Francisco and changes according to freshness and seasonality. Each dish is artistically created and highlights an inventive flair for marrying diverse flavors with natural organic ingredients into a gastronomic delight. An award-winning wine program offers a superb collection that inspires daring pairings at prices that encourage exploration. Wine Spectator Award of Excellence four years running.

"Located in the beautiful Intercontinental Hotel in the SOMA district, this restaurant merits is Michelin star. The room is well designed with well spaced tables, floor to ceiling windows and hushed but convivial environment. Cocktails and well made and the wine list is substantial and has broad listing from around the world in a variety of price ranges. My St Joseph was superb at $70. Starters and mains are all exciting. I had an amberjack presentation which rates up there with the best I've had. My beef was prepared perfectly and pared with wonderful vegetables. A light panna cotta was just the right finish. I'd place this among the best restaurants in SF."

"This outpost of the locavore chain, Seasons 52, works well in this shopping mall along route 9. The restaurant is comfortable but, if crowded, can be noisy. However, it's a friendly noise. The service is very friendly, informative and helpful with the rather diverse menu selections. The food is better than average for a place of it's size and bar service/wine list is good. It's all a bit predictable but that brings comfort to most diners including the harried shoppers and local business folks that inhabit the place. At lunch the tuna salad and the duck tacos were very good. Dinner has several fish options which work very well. Worth a trip."

"Tucked inside the Museum of Fine Arts is a truly wonderful restaurant. Beautifully designed, spacious with gracious service, this dining room is well worth the effort it takes to stop by the MFA. Guided by the creative hand of Tim Partridge, the food options are all tempting. At yesterday's lunch on the terrace overlooking an interior courtyard, the lobster salad and crab cakes were top notch. A well chosen wine listing adds to the pleasure. Deserts are not overdone - that is, everything is not chocolate like in most places -- but I always get the cookie plate!"
