Cuisine: Mediterranean

Description & Atmosphere
Mistral's beautiful waterfront location and its consistently good food makes this one of our favorite Peninsula restaurants. It's tucked away in Redwood Shores, just off Marine World Parkway, a short drive from Hwy. 101 and Oracle's HQ. The property has a dock so guests can arrive by boat.

Dining at Mistral Restaurant, main dining room

Dining areas include the main split-level dining room— featuring large windows facing the outside patio and lagoon, a wood-fired oven with counter seating, and a cozy bar area — waterfront patio seating, and two private wine cellar rooms.

Mistral's impressive Mediterranean menu combines Southern French and Italian cuisine and features fresh seasonal ingredients.

Fabulous appetizers / salads include Thai Crab & Shrimp Spring Rolls with Cilantro (stuffed with fresh crab and shrimp and accompanied with a nice light sauce), Sonoma Goat Cheese Fondue, Dungeness Crab Cake, and Warm Spinach-Wild Mushroom Salad with Roasted Goat Cheese.

Sesame Crusted Seared Rare Ahi Tuna and Long Green beans

House specialties feature everything from Bacon Wrapped Angus Filet Mignon and Marinated Colorado Lamb Chops to Roasted Sonoma Chicken, Paella and Pan-Seared Sea Scallops. We like the Sesame Crusted Seared Rare Ahi Tuna (photo above), stacked on top of Wasabi Mashed Potatoes and surrounded by long Chinese green beans — absolutely fantastic.

Seafood Special - Halibut with Smoked Salmon and Avacado topping

The Halibut Special (photo above) is another standout — it's served atop a delicious Potato Pancake and stacked with mixed Vegetables and a Smoked Salmon, Sweet Pepper and Avocado topping.

Wine Spectator Award Winner
Impressive selection of fine wines from around the world — including wines by the glass — at reasonable prices. We like the Chilean and Australian wines. Mistral's accolades include Winner 2003 Wine Spectator Magazine Award of Excellence.


Private Party Rooms
Two private wine cellar rooms are available for parties and group events — ideal for Team-Building and entertaining VIPs.

Dine al fresco overlooking the lagoon. This glass-protected seating area features umbrella tables to keep you cool on warm summer days, built-in heaters to keep you warm on chilly nights, and a retractable roof that allows you to look out at the surrounding tall trees.

The central point of the patio's dining area features a giant cement gas-burning fireplace with a very large hearth in front of it and on the other end, two waterfalls that run along the sides of the wall where you can sit — very nice.
