Great ambiance! Excellent food and service. A treat to have dinner at Il Mulino.
Perfect setting for an important business lunch. Overall excellent experience.
Great service excellent food - first time to the uptown restaurant. We will be back!
I loved the location in Miami and was thrilled to replicate the experience in NYC. Food is outstanding! The welcome treats are amazing. Servers were excellent.
Couldn't find a better, more welcoming place with exceptional food.
Estuvo muy bien, no se porque no anotaron que estuvimos allí
Excellent food and service. Old world kind of dining experience, but casual dress is not turned away.
We’ve dined many times at Il Mulino. Tonight, they were off. We were shuffled between a number of servers - all of whom seemed put off to have to serve us.
Our meal was outstanding. We skipped appetizers and ordered the langustine with risotto. Incredible. We had lovely hors'doerves in the form of aged parmesan, lots of bread choices, egg plant, etc. Lovely wine, which we always order and they remember.
Expensive lunch but well worth the price.
Always the best food
Came here for a nice dinner on the last night of our visit to NYC and were not disappointed!! Immediately brought us cheese, bread, zucchini (wonderful), and bruschetta! All was fabulous and waiter was very helpful to us in explaining many menu options. Not inexpensive but well worth it as food and service was all outstanding...
Very disappointing! Asked for a quiet corner table when I made my reservation. We were seated in the middle of the room and the noise level was unbearable... as was the service. People that came in after us were served and finished before us! Would not recommend the restaurant. They didn't even try to accommodate us.
Excellent considerate service, and excellent food
We would have enjoyed our meal more if we hadn’t been seated next to a table of twelve we’ll-oiled men, who talked and laughed as if they were in a private room. I guess it made them feel important but it was hard for our party of four to have a conversation and enjoy an expensive (for us) but delicious meal. I don’t know how to avoid that kind of thing, particularly in a small restaurant, but I would welcome suggestions!
As good as the night started was how poorly it ended. I went here with my girlfriend for restaurant week and we chose the $80 menu with one wine pairing. They gave us a lot of complimentary appetizers that took us pleasantly off guard but soon realized that this was done to mask later issues. The food was sub par for a 4 dollar sign restaurant. Eggplant was forgettable, pasta was ok, ravioli was very good with an intense mushroom flavor. My biggest frustration was the wine pairing or lack thereof. I had to ask the waiter twice about the wine pairing, and when I asked they seemed confused and brought out a glass of unknown wine to me. There was no explanation as to what wine this was, how many years, country of origin, grapes used, how it complimented the meal AT ALL. I was just simply given a random glass of wine for $40. I reminded the waiter for my next course about the wine pairing and they gave me a white wine for a filet mignon! Forget the fact that they gave me a white wine with a red meat, the white wine was so acidic I could not even stomach it and refused to drink it. It really did not feel like there was any wine pairing planned and they simply poured me a glass of whatever was available. Very disappointing experience, especially for a 4 dollar sign restaurant. And to top it off, later that day I was very sick from the meal, so something must have been prepared incorrectly. Would not recommend going here, as I can only imagine the regret I would have if I went here NOT during restaurant week when the meals are full price.
Incredible and authentic dishes in a lively atmosphere. Lovely experience, recommended 10/10.
Went out with husband before our show and everything was amazing. Attentive staff, great menu, great food and superb night.
Il Mulino is always Il Mulino. Consistently highest level of food, preparation,service excellent and appropriate wine list. I have been going to the 3rd and Thompson location since 1994. It was our first time uptown and we were delighted.
Just incredible! Goran and the rest of the crew left us speechless. Amazing eggplant meatball and sauce, out of this world truffle pasta. Many wine choices and spectacular service. I couldn’t recommend more highly
Service was wonderful. First time to uptown location. Expensive, but food was great.
Uno de los mejores restaurantes de todo NYC. Una atención excepcional y muy personalizada. La comida espectacular, una extraordinaria cava de vinos italianos.
Birthday - although we had indicated as such when reserving and mentions on arrival. They needed to be reminded at end of dinner. Waiter seemed to be a bit smug. Food was extraordinary one of the best meals that I have had in a long time. .
Excellent as always. Our favorite Italian in the city.
More than average food; too heavy and far away from traditional refined italian. Noisy place with little room to move (tables are too close to each others). Quality of service was very poor, Never again!
We had a fantastic dinner!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a delicious Italian meal. Zanco(our server) was a delight!!!
Il Mulino never disappoints! Consistently sublime! Excellent food, impeccable service, divine wine and truffles galore!
I’ll Mulino knocks it out of the ballpark with service. From the moment we sat down the staff were very attentive, professional and knowledgeable. One of our favorite spots in NY for authentic Italian.
If you love Italian food, you'd have a hard time finding it better elsewhere. Il Mulino is among my favorite restaurants. The food and service is truly outstanding.
Good found but tiramisu dessert was dreadful, akin to something from Olive Garden
Guested birthday lady who enjoyed
We went in for an early lunch that was delicious and perfect.
Great food, service, & ambience! My favorite Italian restaurant!
Excellent food .very good service. Work on the street detracted a bit.
We very rushed throughout the entire meal. It seemed as if all they wanted us to do was eat quickly and leave. While the food is good, having time to enjoy ones meal and company is also part of the dining experience. Apparently, Il Mulino does not seem to recognize that.
Great food but way too dark...a lot of people I noticed were using their cell phones for light as well as myself.
This was our second visit to Il Mulino, and it was just as memorable as the first one. Great Italian cuisine, seamless and attentive service, quality wine list from Italy and beyond, this small restaurant on the Upper East Side is one to savor again and again.
My husband and I were very disappointed with Il Mulino (uptown). When we arrived, we were escorted to our table (we had the option of either the smallest table in the restaurant, or a larger one which was next to the bar). The maitre d suggested the latter since it was larger. However, this was probably a mistake as this table was located next to the bar, practically on the outset of the dining room, in a busy area where the servers would congregate. Unfortunately, my husband’s seat was in the walkway where the servers were constantly going back and forth coming up to the bar, grabbing things from the bar (their arms were literally inches away from my husband’s face). So our night started with prob the worst seat in the house. Overall, the food was fairly decent. Although, we were just uncomfortable with how “aggressive” if you will, the servers were as they immediately plopped complimentary starters on our table (bread, bruschetta, etc), quickly swapped them out for our appetizer, and before we knew it, our dinner was served. (Our entrees were served around 9:50 PM...mind you, we arrived to the rest around 9:15 PM. My experience at upscale restaurants is generally less rapid fire.) We felt completely rushed throughout this evening which was supposed to be a relaxing night celebrating my birthday. Very disappointing.
Tried this location again and it is just not close to being up to par let alone way above. Service was pretty much non existent. Food was good not excellent as it should be. So much I can say but why bother. Experience was just not great like it should be. Friday night and place was not busy. Maybe others concur? Sadly, I won’t be back
Il Mulino is one of those old standards that continues to stand the test of time. Once you get past the hostess, the service is excellent. The food is delicious if not predictable. The price is high but not other-worldly. The soft shell crab was in season and I ordered it from the List of Specials. Wonderfully cooked with spinach that was clearly fresh. Il Mulino never disappoints.
