It is the best Italian I have ever tried so far! No complain for all the food we ordered! Scallop is perfectly cooked, angel hair taste fabulous and al dente, veal Chop is juicy and thick, tiramisu with whipped cream is unbeatable! Service is very attentive! Atmosphere is fun! Must try!

Service was exceptional and very authentic Italian. There must have been 10-12 people serving our group. Bread and appetizers were excellent way to open the meal. The chunk of parmesan cheese that was served to all was very unusual and an excellent complement to the breads and meats which were also served. Food was excellent and so was the wine. It was a bit dark - only 1 candle per table did make it a bit difficult at times to find what was needed or if anything was dropped off the table.

Wonderful meal! The food was fantastic. The evening begins with plates of bruschetta, cured meat, Parmesan and breads. We enjoyed our entrees so much we didn’t have room for dessert. Service is bustling and constant. You will never have a moment in need. Highly recommend!

The food is still very good at this New York tradition. However, the decor is outdated and the service is, while friendly, nothing to write home about. You can get equally good Italian fare in many restaurants in New York, without having to reach that deep into your pocket.

Il Mulino is a fantastic restaurant - one of the best in NYC!
The food is exceptional, and the service very professional. A really special dining experience. The room could use an update, but why change anything when you have such a winning combination?

I’ll start with the positive, the ambiance was very pleasant and my girlfriend and I had planned on going there for a while. When restaurant week came up and the restaurant was available for dinner we jumped on board and made a reservation for Dinner.

We called ahead since we were a little late for the reservation the welcoming was 5* however as we sat down we inquired with the waiter about their restaurant week menu. He informed us that they are not participating for dinner and only for lunch and proceeded to inquire what wine we would like to start with as the other serves started bringing us little stater plates. Our inquire about the restaurant week menu was completely disregarded and we were made very uncomfortable to make and exit and come back for lunch or to one of their other locations that supposably participate for dinner.
That being said we decided to enjoy ourselves and stay for dinner. The reservation we made was for 10pm through open table as there was a open reservation for 10:30 and somehow we were still rushed to order our main courses almost as soon as we arrived since the kitchen I guess was closing early. The dinner was excellent, at the end we asked the manager very politely about the false information online and he was very apologetic but still instead of a little taste of this lovely menu we got an even smaller sample and some a good 230$ instead of the 42$ x 2 prefix set for restaurant week.
My girlfriend and I are disappointed in the experience as how politely forceful the staff was in making us uncomfortable to come back at another time and stay for dinner regardless of the miss advertisement and misinformation. I thought avenue held on such high regard would be more accommodating.
My girlfriend was really looking forward to the New York Strip paying the extra 10$ for it would be great, paying 72$ just for the steak was not in our plan for that evening I would have been happier paying full price at STK or Peter Luger.

Fantastic food and service. The waiter recommended a very good bottle of wine for $100. Tagliatelle was fantastic. The black squid ink linguine with seafood was also very good but not as stellar. Tartufo desert was awesome. Its pricey but it is a great spot for a special occasion dinner.

As former New Yorkers my wife and I always treasured our times at Il Mulinos.
The food and service were always top notch. Now as Philadelphians we really look forward to coming again.
As you can see, we were there last Sunday and with everything so wonderful then we made reservations for our next visit to NYC
( today ) were happy to get reservations again.
See you tonight and thank you again for last Sunday.
