Il Mulino - New York
EXCELLENTCharming, Delicious, Delightful, Amazing, Fun, Classy, Scrumptious,6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBobm3The service at Il Mulino is excellent, the most attentive and friendly that we have experienced. The way they present appetizers as part of the meal is a real experience and pleasure. They are very attentive but not overbearing. All staff are very pleasant and friendly. The food is quite varied and presented in a very interesting manner. The cost of this experience is worth it5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWatch out for the specialsOverall the food was wonderful. However, the specials not on the menu can vary dramatically in price without any disclosure. I ordered the special fish of the day (which was delicious), but was shocked when I got the bill and found that it was TWICE as much as the highest priced entree on the menu. It would have been nice if the waiter had warned me about this when I ordered, since (in my view) this was too high a price for this item. This is why I gave only 3 stars for service and would not recommend that a friend go there (unless they were told to watch out for the inflated prices of the specials).5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Mulino Rocks!My bride and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary with a fabulous rack of lamb and Paglia E Fieno Alla Papalina that I swear was homemade. We ended our meal with one of our favorite desserts: Mascarpone and fresh berries. To add to the quality of the food was the excellent service we received: attentive, friendly and impeccable.
"We will be back," I told the Captain, and I, we, meant it. A great meal; a wonderful memory.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good here,The food is very good here, but seriously overpriced. The service is very friendly, but there is a distinct 'production line' feel about it. The wine list is small but contains many good wines. However, the list is insulting to diners, with more bottles over $1,000 than under $100, and very few choices under $150. Tables are poorly placed. My chair was bumped into regularly by the staff during my meal. I have not had this problem at restaurants with much greater crowding of tables. We are not going back, as there are so many other truly excellent, not overpriced Italian dining options in Manhattan providing a more satisfying experience overall.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Mulinos is the best ofIl Mulinos is the best of the best when it come to Italian food and never misses4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful for a special occasion!!!A very good/excellent but pricey almost-hidden gem in the environs of NYU's Washington Square.
The black squid linguini was tasty and plentiful; the rack of lamb done perfectly. The service was also very good, if slightly over the top.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining highly recommendExcellent dining highly recommend
Very close to the NY location in experience4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of good Italian in NYCLots of good Italian in NYC - this one better a little better than the rest for hearty fare (not a foodie place). Service is what makes it great - white tie classy but very fun, top notch. Too expensive and pain to get reservations to be a regular place but special occasion it's good to go.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had been told to go toWe had been told to go to this restaurant and so glad we did--it was fabulous! The service was absolutely the best from our brief drink at the small bar through our meal to the moment we left. The food was "over-the-top" good! We would (and already have) recommend this to everyone we know! LOVE the flowering branches at the bar and wooden wine crates dividing the bar from the restaurant. Love all the "tastes" of food as we sat down.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST Italian food in the CityExtraordinary real Italian food! The best I've had in New York City. On the expensive side, but glad to pay when the food is this good.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurantThis is my favorite restaurant in the city. The food is sensational and the environment is quintessential New York. Their little ritual of plunking delectable little antipasto items onto your plate the minute you sit down is both unique and delightful. Long live this gem!3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic old school NYC Italian.Classic old school NYC Italian. Great for a special occasion.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb classic Italian restaurantSuperb classic Italian restaurant never disappoints1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a lunch reservationI had a lunch reservation but the place was packed and so they had to sit me at the bar. Service from the maitre d' was nice enough but the waitstaff was excellent. Food was excellent and plentiful. Would definitely go back.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSnobish staff, perfect foodThey tried to cancell my reservation done on OPENTABLE without any reasons... But I am persistant!
The food is excelent but a bit overpriced! But the staff behaves like they rule the all italian cuisine on Manhattan! Too many emploees for no reasons, to strange way in suggesting the menu (the waiter does not give you the cart till he tells the whole menu by heart, they also try to squeeze you for extra drinks at the entrance, etc.
But if you come through it - you will get excelent food!12/30/2012 12:00:00 AM
