In addition to fine dining, Il Mulino New York provides excellent off-site catering and products.
Food was great. Ricotta cheesecake was soft and creamy, not the consistency I expected. But still flavorful.
Truly enjoyable service with OUTSTANDING food. We dined on a few special appetizers, of note were the eggplant meatballs, very special!
Outstanding meal and service. Couldn't ask for a better experience for myself and my wife.
Very disappointing prix fixe menu for Valentine's day...
Our favorite New York City restaurant. It’s an extravaganza that you must experience if you really enjoy excellent Italian food. Authentic. Several sites so please try the uptown on 60th. Our favorite.
Excellent service and quiet early - a late loud and rude couple seated next to us was the only downside. Should have stopped at the pasta sampler, but the Osso buco was excellent
Best Italian restaurant in New York city!! Great ambience, delicious food and even better service.
My wife and I had lunch at our favorite restaurant and we were wowed again. The food was great and the staff just too great care of us throughout the entire meal. We look forward to eating there again very soon.
One of the best!
The portion is huge!
Lunch= quiet, pleasant
Dinner: unless you are there very early or late, prime time is noisy
Excellent Italian food, deelish freebees are complimentary so really not nec scary to order appetizer, however if you do, the meatballs or eggplant with ricotta stuffing are the best
Reservation: a must
Great service!!! The “head waiter” at first wasn’t too attentive. Read us the menu like he didn’t care, but the rest of the staff made up for his lack of attention and care! The staff was amazing made sure we were fine and that all of our needs were met. At first we went in for restaurant week but we ended up ordering from the regular menu.
Me and my mom had a grand time. The food was good (could do better with your appetizer selection), but overall, I would definitely recommend.
I enjoyed the food, service and ambiance.
The noise was way too loud. It may not return because of the noise level
For meeting with occasional guests whom one needs to have some conversation with, Il Mulino is too noisy. None of us could hear the specials being described by the waiter. That said, the food is extraordinary, the service is kind and prompt, and the place is lovely, if a bit dark. But I enjoyed the evening, in spite of the difficulty hearing.
The food was as excellent as usual and the service was professional and friendly. Being that it was restaurant week, it seemed like they squeezed in a few extra tables so the seating was cramped and we were definitely rushed. Drinks, appetizer, main course and dessert in less than 80 minutes. I am not sure it makes sense for a restaurant like this to participate in restaurant week dinner if they feel so much pressure to turn the tables. We will gladly go back, but not during restaurant week.
Il Mulino was an excellent dinner with great service. The food was amazing with excellent flavor and the spicy pasta was spicy! The bread basket had a great selection and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back!
Way too noisy to really enjoy dinner. I couldn’t hear the person next to me. Food was very good but just not worth another visit because of the volume.
Elegant relaxing experience - however bathroom is downstairs a steep staircase - should be a WC on floor- especially for women who have heels and enjoy a glass of wine
Food was pretty good, my pasta was very good but someone at the table got the steak ordered it Medium rare and it came out extremely rare. Had an early reservation and they really tried to rush us out, came over every 2 min to ask us if we knew what we wanted and pressure us to order everything at once. after we ordered our food we couldn't find the waiter after that. someone else brought us our check so we couldn't even ask for the steak to be heated a little longer.
Outstanding food! Great service, ang great atmosphere
My favorite restaurant in NYC. Everything about it is wonderful! Highly recommend!
Great dinner, one of the best Italian in NYC!
Tasty fish in elegant sauce. Attentive waiters. Good bread
Expensive but delicious, and the generous and tasty ameuse-bouche at the start of the meal are a real plus. The striped bass was particularly good, as is anything with eggplant.
I made reservations for restaurant week two weeks prior . Got there but no table for awhile but offered us a table by the front door . We accepted. Service was ok except one waiter who offered bread would fling the bread onto our plates , acting kind of angry at us. Later I asked later for a little more bread and he came back and yelled at me that there’s no more there’s no more and then again flung the bread on our plates- my husbands bread slid off his plate. That same waiter , when he brought my cappuccino , flung it again so my spoon slid off the saucer . Twice he did this. The food was good . I would go again hoping to get a better table and a waiter /bread man who doesn’t have anger management issues.
Absolutely the noisiest restaurant I have ever been to in my life. Food was very good. The service was mediocre at best.
My wife and I went for Restaurant Week and while 5he food was reasonably good, the service was terrible. The meal was incredibly rushed to the point we could not enjoy the meal. We will never return.
I read a lot of negative comments about the location on the Upper East side. I have to say I didn't experience any of what was written. A friend of mine and I went for restaurant week. The food was excellent! The service was excellent! I even arrived late and they gave us table; no problem to sit us. Very happy we went.
We had a 6 pm reservation and they did seat us immediately. Extremely tight quarters. Food was good but it was like an assembly line with the rush. Not a pleasant experience.
An experience like no other.
Excellent ambiance, service and great food. Wonderful dining experience !
Food was excellent. Tables are crowded next to each other , hardly room to move through the room to get to your table or leave without bumping in seated guests. noise level was bedlam. We really enjoyed the food but never again. My hearing (and I'm used to NYC restaurants) will never recover.
Food was OK. Was basically rushed through our meal and they kept checking if we put our credit card in the check. Wouldn’t return
I was in town for a week of opera and classical music and by fate and good fortune chose this restaurant for a restaurant week lunch. Absolutely super and if i would have been able to change my return home i would have gone back for another meal. I will always go here now! Thank you restaurant week!
Il Mulino merits an excellent review. The staff was helpful and attentive responding in a few seconds to a wave of the hand. The bread service included regular Italian, sesame, wheat, focaccia, spicey and butter. A complimentary antipasto was served on three plates and a chunk of Parmigiana-Reggiano. The eggplant rollatini was perfectly seasoned and slightly releve. The Lamb Ragu Fettuccine with fresh mozzarella was hearty, satisfying and filling with plenty of ground lamb. I finished the meal with a macchiato. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in an Italian meal
Previous visits to Il Mulino were wonderful. This one was far from it. Seated in the entry area we were obviously outliers who were forgotten. Service was abysmal. Food was mediocre. Very disappointing and
so sorry to see what was once a wonderful restaurant fall from it's once great food and service.
Long gone are the glory days of Il Mulino. The uptown restaurant could be any of a score of decent Italian places with basic menus and adequate but not memorable food. It seems wildly popular with a casual clientele. Nothing wrong with it but why bother.
Il Mulino is authentic Italian with an elegant flare. The service was outstanding, and the food was incredible. - especially the dessert! Try the panna cotta :)
We had a wonderful time. Staff was very attentive and food was excellent. lamb ossobuco was incredible! The house Cabernet was exquisite. Wine list however was a bit overpriced if you wanted a bottle but overall a very good experience
