We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The food was outstanding and the service was fairly seamless. It was an expensive night out, but well worth it.

This is a nice French restaurant. Excellent service, especially leading up to ordering. Lots of staff. Busy so suggest a reservation. Interesting and varied menu. Main courses quite large, mostly meat. Prices reflect the venue, medium and some more expensive. Good drinks menu

There is no corkage fee I can imagine at a great restaurant like that- mistral would likely not allow it. If they did, yes, $40 or so sounds correct.
