Il Mulino New York - Miami
We keep returningEl Mulino tops all lists. The staff, service, setting, cuisine, view, starters and Tino's (the Maitre'd) special home-made surprise at the conclusion of the meal, tops off the overall experience. A bit expensive; but you get what you pay for, as evidenced by the fact that we keep returning. Our last meal, which was our fifth, we were served Ziad a relatively new waiter, who when we dined at El Mulino two weeks earlier earned his jacket, his service was magnificent, this time he was wearing his new jacket! Well Deserved. Hats off to management for making sure that everything is perfect, each and every visit and a special thanks to Tino, who really knows how to top off the dinner - Outstanding!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMsimply amazing - from servicesimply amazing - from service to food to atmosphere. one of the best dinner experiences we've ever had.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best italian foodSome of the best italian food I've had.

This was my first time in the Miami location. Everyone was so impressed. The whole experience was just amazing. As soon as we sat down we were swarmed with people welcoming us, bringing out cheese, bread, bruschetta, garlic bread, mushrooms. They literally filled the table. My friends both turned to me and said "wow, they just make you feel so welcome, like they really want you to be here." They were attentive, but let us chat away. The food was delivered promptly and was fantastic. The dinner ended with them bringing out grappa. What more could they have possibly done? And the location ... that hotel is just stunning.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, authentic ItalianOutstanding, authentic Italian food.

My wife treated me for my birthday here and they were just great to us. A lovely table by the window with a view of the Atlantic. The meals were wonderful and the service was superb. We visit this restaurant every time we are in Bal Harbour.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTheis was our third visitTheis was our third visit in three weeks. The osso buco, ordered by my wife, was gigantic in size. That being said, the meat was perfectly cooked, tender and tasty and among the best, she said, she has ever had. I ordered a black pasta with lobster and it, too, was perfectly prepared. We had a desert of mixed berries and cappuccino to end the perfect dinner. The food is wonderful and the ambiance is excellent. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHave never had a bad experianceHave never had a bad experiance at this restaurant the food id unbelievable good the best Oso Buco anywhere and I'm well travelled !!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGo. Even if the cab ride is long...For Miami, this place is a cut above. Very Italian. Make that very, very Italian. The welcome you with cheese and antipasti, and then it moves on from there. Solid wine list.
My only complaint, which many will not accept as a complaint, is that the portion sizes are probably a little on the large size. I would have been happy with less.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want fine dinning inIf you want fine dinning in the Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles area, this is it.
