    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.

    I love eating here. It is expensive, but the food is superb, the staff is solicitous, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is always top notch. The kitchen and the service just don't ever have an "off night." For a special meal on the North Shore there is nothing better.

    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.

    From the moment you sit, the food begins. Free appetizers, artisan breads, imported cheese. Every course delicious. It was a little pricey. We took my dad and his wife for her birthday. 2 pasta dishes two veal entrees and the bill was over 250.00. We did have wine and cappuccino.

    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!

    I have been to Il Mulino many times over the years. Even had a private party in the wine cellar for my son's 21st birthday. Have always been very satisfied. Went for my daughter's birthday on Sunday. There were 10 of us. Service was extremely "leisurely". Had to ask for a waiter a few times. Restaurant was not that busy. When I made the reservation I noted that it was my daughter's birthday. They brought our desserts and no happy birthday even though we had seen them sing to several other parties. I wish they would offer a reasonably priced bottle wine. The least expensive bottle was $70 and it was a wine I regularly buy for $15. That is quite a markup. The food was very good-the Sunday Supper is highly recommended.

    We dined at 8pm on a quiet Wednesday evening. The restaurant was about half-filled, no bar scene to speak of that night. The service was excellent: water glasses always filled, drink orders and complimentary appetizers were served promptly. The beef carpaccio has always been my favorite; it goes so well with the complimentary parmigiano cheese. The raw Bluepoint oysters were fresh and sizeable; so much better than most Port Washington seafood restaurants. The pasta dishes were amazing: seafood linguine and ravioli in light cream sauce. We would return to try some of the other dishes. No complaints at all.

    As a regular in the NYC resturant I was just a little bit disappointed in our dinner here. The wine list was great however the appetizing was lacking. It seemed as though they were cutting back on the starters but it could be that the location doesn't warrant larger portions The menu was exactly the same as NYC however it didn't seem as authentic. The wait staff was much friendlier here however. I would suggest less oil in their cooking and some minor tweets to the recipes. Not bad however for the experience if you can not make it into ny.

    At one time, this was the place to go for fine dining. It fails now on a multitude of levels. The complimentary appetizers and variety of breads are now the only redeeming quality this restaurant has left. The salads fall short and the entrees lack creativity and flair. The exorbitant cost just isn't justified. Expect to experience sticker shock even if you don't drink or partake in dessert. This is not the first time our expectations fell short. I'm afraid it's time to move on...

    We were celebrating our anniversary, and we were told this was a romantic place. We were not disappointed. The ambience was very nice, except for some noisy drinkers at the bar. When we were shown to a table close to the bar and we asked for someplace further away from the noise, they were very accommodating and gave us a different table. Unfortunately, the restaurant is somewhat small, so the noisiness of the bar area could not really be escaped. The food was great; we loved the assortment of appetizers that were automatically brought to the table. So, while our main dishes were pretty pricey, we found that we didn't need to order separate appetizers from the menu, so the total was not that outlandish.
