Mistral is a beautiful ocean and bay view restaurant on a Loews property that could use some updating. A happy host and hostess greeted us and assured us what we pulled on after an afternoon at the spa was more than appropriate for the room. The view from the table was breathtaking and the seafood stew and striped sea bass were delicious, but the star of the evening was Dave Carter. This veteran waiter and the other service staff made this dinner an extraordinary night. His pacing was perfect, though he was challenged by indecision brought on by our recent recommitment to healthy eating. I ordered a skinny margarita, and after it was served I mentioned the somewhat elaborate preparation at another favorite restaurant. Before I knew it, orange and lemon slices and basil appeared at the table to complete this perfect drink. Without us mentioning anything more than a general desire to eat healthy, the truffle butter that usually dresses the sea bass, arrived on the side. The fish was great, but Dave's service made our evening perfect. Every restaurant, and every diner, should wish for servers this good.
