    My husband and I went to Il Mulino for our anniversary and had a spectacular dinner. The burata mozzarella appetizer was to die for as was the homemade short rib ravioli that we had. My husband had the lagastino special for dinner and is still talk about how wonderful it was. Thank you for a great night! A wonderful restaurant to go to for a special occassion.

  • The worst table in the house
    Nyc2003
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Made reservations on opentable for 6pm on Saturday nite. They gave us the worst table in the house - in a corner of the side room right next to the cash register - even though the place was practically empty at the time. We didn't want to make a fuss and figured they probably did this because we made the reservation on opentable, which in our experience tends to land us in the less desirable tables at certain restaurants. So we stayed and it was fine until it got busy and the waiters were pretty much constantly working at the register right behind my husband's chair, and then they turned on this glaring light so they can see but it totally destroyed any atmosphere left in our corner. This for a $200 meal for 2 people? I'll never go back.

    The first thing all in our party noticed was how dark the restaurant was. We used our cell phones to read the menu. I saw one waiter shining a flash light on the bread basket so patrons could see what they were choosing. Our waiter acted as if we were bothering him and annoyed that he had to take our order. My entree had to be sent back since my medium rare filet came out medium well. My friends "Risotto" while tasty had more the texture of rice pilaf - not a bit creamy. I asked if the Napoleon was assembled fresh. The waiter said it was, however I was served a soggy dessert which I also sent back. The cannoli was assembled fresh and quite good. I was surprised how medioccre the foor was. There are many better Italian restaurants.

    Il Mulino never disappoints! It's the best Italian restaurant on Long Island by far, and better than most in NYC. From start to finish, it's a special gastronomic treat! Outstanding food, excellent professional service, beautiful atmosphere - what more could you want? My only issue I have is I wish there were more decent affordable wines on the menu, and also some half bottles would be a welcome addition. Otherwise, it's as close to perfect as it gets.

    The food was delicious but I specifically asked for a quiet table when I made the reservation. Not only were we seated near the waiters' station (which was incredibly noisy) they then seated a family with two small children next to us. When I complained to the maitre' d on the way out, he was very rude. He said that family were his regular customers and implied that they could do whatever they wanted. How would one become a regular customer, when treated so poorly on their initial visit. We were very disappointed because the food was very good but way too expensive to have such a "pizza parlor atmosphere,"

    Disappointed in our dining experience. Food was okay Service was lacking Heavy Hispanic accent made if irritating to hear specials as well as to carry on generic conversation with the staff Server BLAZED through specials - never prompting if we understood all the culinary terminology. I did, but knew my guest didn't One guest ordered wine by the glass because he didn't care for the style of wine we were drinking by the bottle -they poured him a glass of wine from the BIG bottle size 1.75 - can't believe a restaurant of this caliber has the nerve to serve poor quality wine by the glass.

    I was truly looking forward to a marvelous evening at Il Mulino-Long Island. The New York restaurant is a gem. Our reservation was for 8:30 pm. We were not seated until after 9 pm. To be fair, I did enjoy my meal. I had a half-order of pasta and the oso bucco. the veal was tender and the sauce was flavorful without being overpowering. My dinner was good but certainly not outstanding or any better than a number of local and less expensive Italian restaurants. My girlfriend had a salad and a pasta dish as her main course. For some reason, it upset her digestive system and she was ill all night thereafter.

    Il Mulino is our go to place on Long Island if we want to celebrate. The service is beyond expectation every time we are there. The special starters are always fun and the food is wonderful. The restaurant is always filled with people. You are made to feel special and that is a rarity on Long Island. We look forward to our next meal at Il Mulino.

    I hadn't been to Il Mulino in Roslyn only in NYC. I thought the restaurant was very nice, but the clientele brought down the atmosphere. I doubled checked the website for dress code - business casual. I am guessing it was blue collar night. Disappointing if you are looking for somewhere to have a special occasion. It could have been TGI Fridays. The food was very good, except for a lamb dish special which was not explained very well and ended up being breaded, which doesn't really work for someone who is gluten free. Service was ok but not commensurate, but not up to the level of the city store. Probably will continue to visit in the city.

    We had an unpleasant experience in regard to the quality of the food preparation. Raviolis were evidently frozen and improperly cooked, tasted like cardboard with fillings icy cold, despite chef's attempt to camouflage them with hot sauce. Some vegetables were smothered with excessive garlic. Some breads were offered without informing that they were spicy.

    The service is outstanding. They serve garlic bread, zucchini salad, mussels, along with bringing a huge wheel of gorgonzola and carving you a hunk of cheese before you get a menu. Food was fresh and well prepared. Pace was a bit quicker than necessary, but it didn't detract if you know how to linger. The atmosphere was friendly and elegant, and quite suited for couples or intimate gatherings.

    Sat down at 8:00 and put in our order with the captain at 8:10. They brought the samples of bread and complementary appetizers but then forgot about our table. The restaurant was not very busy but nobody came by our table for 40 minutes to refill our drinks even though we ordered a bottle of water or bring our appetizers. We finally said something and it turned out they forgot to put in our order. Although they did not charge for our appetizer, the service was Very lame for a high end restaurant.

    Went back after several years. Service was excellent, food prices weren't too far out of line with other top restaurants in the area. Went early so we wouldn't be waiting. Caesar salad had a bit too much garlic and focaccia had too much pepper, but their complimentary bruschetta was delicious.

    The oysters were a disappointment, but I should know better. The water is too warm in August. Otherwise the food was exquisite. This was first time here at the Roslyn location, though I have been to the Village site often. This place should be on every critic's top ten list on Long Island. The famously crowded dining room in the city location is not the case here. It is possible to have a private conversation or to eat in silence without hearing all the details of some other diner's latest Wall Street trade. It is expensive, so I will never be a regular, but I will definitely be back.

    There is no question about the quality of the food, however I gave it fair rating because everything is overpriced. We were seated in a high traffic area where the waiters and busboys were busy moving around and talking a lot in not so well modulated voices. So much was going on that we could not enjoy our meal so we ended up taking most of our food home.

    In the last 3 weeks I have eaten at 3 loc's. Roslyn is so crazy overpriced so that they can bring you "free" salami, zucchini, bread, brushetta, fresh Parmesan,and grappa. I was full before I ordered. This may appeal to some people but in the middle of swimsuit season it was just too much. It was "romantic" setting (dark and stuffy), and there were so many waiters swirling around asking us if we needed anything or refilling out water every 3 seconds I found it annoying. My husband ordered the linguine volngole for an absurd price and was furious when it literally had 6 (halves) of baby clams in it and half a pound of spaghetti. With the exception if his dish The portions were huge. For the $$$$- extremely disappointing. Will never go back.

    Although a little pricey (which we knew before we went), it was worth every cent. We went on the holiday (7/4/14) and was surprised to see it as busy as it was. The "free" appetizers were a nice touch. There was a generous "pour" to wine by the glass. The service couldn't have been better. The food was delicious. We don't live closeby so ordinarily we would not have gone but we had a gift certificate. Now that we have experienced this fine dining restaurant we would definitely go back.

    Had been a while since eating here last--forgotten how good the food was. Weeknight dining far more pleasurable than the "scene" on weekends! Fine dining with very professional service. Only complaint--the table is not big enough to hold the dishes that are delivered to each table. Been to Il Mulino uptown & downtown NYC this is by far the prettiest most comfortable of all!
