Amazing meal- just as great as ever! First time back in almost a year and it was better than I remember. Service was everything you’d want. My husband and I had octopus and baked clam apps, Red Snapper Livornese and Langostines with Risotto- all perfect. Can’t wait until bar is open so we can stop in for a quick drink and apps which we really miss doing! We’ll be back for dinner again soon!

I had not been back to Il Mulino since before the pandemic began, and I am very happy to report they have not lost a thing during these awful times. The food was as spectacular as ever, the service impeccable, and the manager Claudio made it feel like coming home again.

Had a lovely birthday dinner for my fiancee here. They provided us with a quiet table in the corner, and the service was exemplary. We shared a few apps, langoustine, and one of their signature pasta dishes. Classic after dinner drink and cake sealed the deal. Always top notch!

We were almost 30 minutes late - we called to let them know and they were so gracious, never mentioned it after we arrived. The food was perfect - we ordered a lot of different things for 6 of us to to share and every single thing was delicious. Our waiter was fantastic - just the right amount of friendly. New favorite restaurant for special occasions.

Sadly it's not the place it once was. We will continue to go because it's an old favorite but we will need to lower our expectations. For a long time it was exceptional.

Love the complimentary bruschetta, zucchini and Parmesan starter. We ordered a pasta to share as a starter. The Bronzino could easily feed two. I recommend adding the tomato from the bruschetta on top with olive oil. If they bring you grappa, lemonchello is also avail. Love this restaurant. One my top 5 in 30 years in NYC.

The food at Il Mulino is very good, but the service was erratic, included too many people who didn't know what the others were doing, and ended up forgetting what we'd requested. Too much "shtick" in the waiters presentations of the food - funny, but a bit silly. And the price was too high: for four people who drank little, and had no appetizers, including tip, the bill was $325. If the ambiance had been better, and the service what you expect from an expensive restaurant, it might have been more worth it, but I'm afraid we won't be returning.

I have traveled all over the US and several European countries for the past 35 years. Il Mullin is by far the best dining experience. The food is outstanding, the service is impeccable and you are treated as a guest not a customer. It is truly a 5 star restaurant. I will come back as often as possible.

The dinner here was fine. Nothing great nor terrible. Out of 6 dishes our party ordered 2 were good and 4 were not very tasty.

The best two dishes were the Lamb and the Flourless desert.

The pastas were not great and the meatballs were mediocre at best. The service was excellent
