    This was my second visit to P.R. and staying at the Ritz. We did not have a good experience last year at Il Mulino but because it is located in hotel thought we would try it again. It hasn't changed much. After you are seated a waiter comes to you and says he is your captain. Then you eventually get your real waiter and wait for a menu. The service is extremely slow and the food is only average. Then you get your bill and they have separate gratuity lines for your "captain" and waiter. Overpriced, over rated.

    When to PR for my birthday and stayed at the Ritz and Il Mulino was my first choice of restaurant I wanted to go to for my birthday dinner!! It was an awesome experience and my mother said to me why couldn't we have eaten here every night :) she loves great food and the service was excellent! I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you make this your first choice you will not want to eat anywhere else!!

    This hits all the notes of a great meal. From the moment we sat down we were treated to a dining experience with impeccable service. We were brought an amuse bouche as well as an accompaniment to our bread as soon as we sat which started the meal perfectly. The meal was superb and the dessert portion at the end was amazing.

    Service knocked my socks off….overpriced, but they know it, and so should you. Pasta arrabiata (which is supposed to be spicy) was not spicy. Veal chop came out drastically undercooked, and waiter acknowledged that chef was "new". When it came back out, it was cooked to the right temp and color but dry. Langastinos doused in sauce and overcooked. A real shame. Been here before and it's our favorite special occasion place, but fell well short on this trip. Service still the best in the world, but the new chef really made it a disappointing meal.

    I've been coming to Puerto Rico for many years and it's always a treat when I get to dine at Il Mulino's. Tucked away in the elegance of the Ritz Carlton, it's small, yet cozy and intimate setting gives you a grown and sexy feel. Service is impeccable and begins the moment you are seated. You never have to ask for anything and they will go above and beyond to meet your service expectations. The main entree is cooked in front of you and the smell wafts through the air before it is placed in front of you. It was particularly something special when it was ran by GM Carlos. He's since left but the restaurant and food remain head and shoulders above the rest in San Juan. I've celebrated three birthdays here & I've felt good about it each time.

    Overall an overpiced restaurant with decent food. Everything cooked in way too much oil and bordered on greasy. When the bill came, there was not only a spot for tipping the waiter, but a tip for the "captain", I didn't know we had a captain! Cost was 190 and we didn't have drinks or dessert. On the positive, the wait staff was extraordinary. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    While pretty small/tightly packed, we had an overall pleasant dining experience. The service is top notch and the foodies incredibly fresh and flavorful. We enjoyed a shrimp dish and incredibly fresh gnocchi pesto (although a bit too much sauce for my taste). Top off dinner with their flour less chocolate cake for dessert

    Il Mulino is a great restaurant. Consistently excellent but expensive. I stay at the Ritz hotel a lot and eat here often. Whether eating a few courses with a group or a bowl of minestrone alone at the bar, I always have a great meal and the service is at a high level. I would have given it 5 stars on service but the meal can take too long on some nights.

    Wait staff in tuxes (looked great) which counters the dumbing-down of our present "dress code." Many of the diners were dressed like they just got off the beach which ruined the ambiance of fine dinning which it is. The waiters were extremely helpful. The food was tasty and plentiful. I would not change a thing. My wife loved the half portions that were available.

    We had to wait about 12 minutes (not exaggerating) to get our menus. I was interested in the 50% off on the wine list offer, but received the wine list at 7:25, five minutes before the offer ended. Funny that I had to wait so long for the wine list when in the reservation I wrote that I was celebrating a special occasion. The complimentary tapas they passed over the tables were way too greasy and the bread didn't tasted fresh. The appetizer and main course were ok, but didn't love the dessert. The service was way to robotic, never got to feel engaged...then had an awkward moment when the check was presented.

    Nestled in the Ritz Carlton and very close to their casino, Il Mulino is a great way to begin vacation. Service begins with appetizers on the house, and finishes with great deserts. Highly recommend for that special meal when in San Juan.

    I've been to this restaurant before and had far better experiences. The food is good though quite expensive. Still, for the location- it's acceptable. What is not ok is the service. I can't recall more in attentive, bad attitude treatment at any establishment. Really careless and rude. Nice wine lost though also pricy.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    My fiancee and I came to Puerto Rico to celebrate our engagement and decided to dine at il Mulino at the Ritz Carlton San Juan. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess was cold and unwelcoming, as if she was doing us a favor by seating us, even though we had a reservation. She sat us along a row of tables that lined a walkway where waiters, bussers and customers would pass through the restaurant. My fiancee asked if we could be seated at a different table, away from the traffic of the restaurant since we were celebrating. The hostess replied, "No, this table is reserved for an anniversary" and she coldly walked back to her hostess station. The table remained empty throughout the evening. This terrible experience ruined our meal.

    First enjoyed dinner here three years ago, on a layover to Tortola. Wonderful food, and now make a first night of vacation before a week in the BVI's. Service is attentive and immediate. Spinach salad and then a pasta main course is a sure winner. Highly recommend, and the Ritz Carlton is a great place to spend a night or a few days.

    Enjoyed the meal. Great service. Unfortunately, we had a few spoiled children a table over, so we had to deal with that headache, but the food was very good. On the downside, the wine list was ridiculously overpriced. A store priced $27 2007 Terrabianca Campaccio was $114 on the wine list. I don't mind paying 2x or even 2.5x at an upscale restaurant, but that was just nuts. I'd go back, but as a warning, bring your wallet...

    The food was good not close to great yet very expensive, NY city prices in Puerto Rico . The waiters attitude is that they are doing you a favor by letting you eat at their restauarant. Amazingly after ordering a bottle of Pinot Grigio, the comment from the waiter is that the only Pinot Grigio they have is the $100 bottle and we were stupid enough to believe them. We were there twice, once with a group of 6, drinking a lot and ordering a lot of food and the waiters love you. The second time, two people who just want a drink and an entree, they dont have a need for you as you are not running up a big bill. If you want to spend $100+ person for dinner in puerto rico its fine but in my opinion for the money it should be better than fine.

    Very unhappy-booked a 6 pm table for 1000 pts-arrived 15 minutes late --after calling ahead and told no problem--but was only awarded 100 pts. We were the only people in the restaurant when we arrived and it ws more that half empty when we left. Would not have eaten here if we had known in advance they would change the reservation so we were not eligible for the 1000 pts. Pasta was bland!
