Il Mulino uptown is a reliable offshot to the original downtown location. Food is great and the goodies just keep on coming, starting with a wedge of reggiano & going from there.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. I usually go to the il Mulino in Roslyn however had an event in the area before dinner and decided to give the uptown location a shot. When I arrived for my 11:30pm reservation we were quickly seated. Upon seated you can hear other customers speaking so loud and obnoxiously. I couldn't even here myself speak to my girlfriend. Prices should be different at this location since I see a lot of the same complaints at this location. Staff and waiter was very friendly however rushed us to order as they stated the kitchen would close at Midnight. I usually recommend the Chicken Parmigiana however it is not the best at this location. I also told the waiter it was my girlfriends birthday where he said he will sing happy birthday and put a candle on the dessert. When they brought out the dessert they never put a candle or sung anything. It was very embarrassing! This never happens at the Roslyn location.

Terrible experience, I’ve dined at many Michelin Star restaurants this week for fashion week. NONE have treated me how this restaurant has. I waited 25 minutes to get greeted by a hostess, who said he was going to get a table ready and have a drink at the bar. I waited 20 minutes at the bar, meanwhile there were atleast 5 empty tables within eyesight and he kept making eye contact and running away keeping me waiting at the bar. I felt very disrespected and will never recommend this place to anyone ever.

Il Mulino is a tradition every time we visit New York! We just love this restaurant. The lamb is absolutely outstanding. The homemade savory breads and chefs tapas give you that feeling of being transported back to Italy.

The quality of service and food are outstanding at this restaurant, even on a Saturday on a holiday weekend,
the food did not fall from their normal standards. The lamb was sweet and tender, the langustine delicious with the risotto.

Restaurant week menu was not offered. when requested you felt uninvited .
Then portions were half the size
If this was my first time I would not want to be back
You have to consider restaurant week as an opportunity for people to discover the best of your place not the worst of it

If you want people to return after restaurant week.....do things right. Never offered a restaurant week menu so we had to ask. Food was mediocre at best. Only offered 2 courses instead of three. Why even bother? Will not return.

2 glasses of champagne to start, followed by sumptuous octopus, and a branzino for two. pasta dishes were shared and excellent. wine was a 2014 barbaresco quite reasonably priced and excellent.
service was spot on and professional. Only drawback was the noise level which was too loud for a quiet conversation. tipping the captain here is separate, one of the few remaining in nyc to do so.

My guest and I are both in the food and beverage industry and after enduring one month of Restaurant week in Manhattan we wanted to see how the other half lives. That being the bargain Resturant week clientele.

ILL MULINO was impressive in all aspects of the dining experience.

The food was classical and flavorful. The service was attentive but not intrusive.

Only issue we had was that there was a table of around 8 people that we’re being unnecessarily loud, by the time we arrived it was too early so there was no crowd and it wasn’t nice and quiet, but this table just kept yelling with every word they said and no one asked them to keep it down a bit...

We were there for restaurant week with friends. We were rushed from course tocourse. They were trying to get us out as soon as possible. The food was average at best. Main dishes w no side vegetable
If they have restaurant week menu they should treat those customers as guests they would like to see again. We will never go back!

We ate at the restaurant during restaurant week. The deserts and iced teas we had were not included in the restaurant week menu and were very expensive, e.g.$7 for an iced tea. The waiters seemed in a rush to put one course after another before us, and the food was OK but nothing special.

This was the single worst dinner I've had. It was clear that the staff did not respect us from the moment we walked in. The waiter handed us the restaurant week menu and did not offer us the regular restaurant menu. During our meal, a white couple sat down and the same waiter gave them the option of choosing. This act clearly implied that we could not afford what was on the regular restaurant menu. This waiter then brought us the check before we were done with our dessert. While we were leaving, the maître d did not acknowledge us. We were in and out of the restaurant within 38 minutes. As the only black person in the restaurant, I noticed how differently they treated us vs the rest of the guests. It was clear that I was not wanted in the restaurant. Il Mulino can be assured that I will never return.

The restaurant week price may very well increase by 100-200% with a glass of wine, coffee, tip and similar additions.

Friendly and experienced service.

Steep steps to reach the restroom in basement .

Meh. Rushed hectic atmosphere that has close tables and many mixed staff attending all tables with no connection to the customers. Food is good but I ordered from the very strict restaurant week menu only. Their accoutrements are delicious. That’s their redeeming quality.

Food was delicious as always. Portions of fish way to large for one person, I think waiter should have told us that. Also I did not get the requested quieter table, as I have a hearing problem, although 2 wall tables were open when we came in at 8:30. We were in middle Of restaurant.

Server never came back to check in after taking order and we were given the check 10mins after desert (we did not ask for the check). Also when we asked what sauce is on our main dish, the server looked annoying and didn’t care to answer in detail. While we appreciate the complimentary appetizers, some were very oily. Disappointing service let down the whole dining experience.

Il Mulino is hands down my favorite restaurant for a special night out. You are always treated warmly like family and your every need is taken of before you even realize you had a need - and this is done without any bother to you or your conversation at all. I don't know how they do it! They are incredibly kind and attentive. And then there's the food!!! Wow. Incredibly delicious and so many specials! From the moment you sit down they offer you wonderful cheese, bread, bruschetta - all so amazing. Can't wait to go back!

This is not the Il Mulino I remember from 10 years ago. Granted this was restaurant week, but the portion size on the salads had to be less than half of a normal salad. The size of my piece of salmon, again less than half of the normal portion size, I could have easily eaten two or three of those pieces. My wife ordered the veal and they literally served her no side order with the veal, they just brought her a piece of meat--no vegetables, no potatoes, nothing. I get that they "only" charged $42 for a three course meal, well below their normal pricing, but to shrink the portion sizes by more than half and also not have anything with my wife's main course except a piece of meat was really upsetting, not to mention having her chair get kicked almost every time the waiter walked by. Needless to say we are not going back.

We went there for NYC Restaurant Week, their menu was completely different from what they have on their regular menu. No complaints about the food, am not sure if you can do anything more with it! They had a special Italian beer which was great as well. Sunday lunch in their porch/patio is a great idea and we were pretty happy with the experience. It is a pretty pricey restaurant on usual days.

I felt that the menu choice was excellent, however we had a disappointing eating experience. I had to send back my veal medallions as they were tough, however my husband's pasta was excellent. Ceasar salad was a very small side and not really outstading for a restauarant of this reputation.Whilst the service was attentive, it was often overbearing.
Complimentary antipastoa nice touch.
