When we arrived the hostess ignored us for a bit even though we had a reservation. Thanksgiving Dinner Menu. It said turkey breast, but by the time we arrived it was white and dark mixed meat mixed in with lots of watery gravy to moisten the dry/stale turkey. The stuffing was slightly cold and the yams & mashed potato portions were extremely small and not even slightly hot. Our server brought out food, but left us w/o utensils a couple of times, but the bus person was very sweet. The old fashioneds were served in baby highball glasses & a baby straw to go with it which is an insult to the traditional old fashioned. We took our pie servings home and when we got home the apple was all broken up in pieces and chunks and the pumpkin pie serving was small also. Some people would say they deserve a pass since it was Thanksgiving, but that was a chance you had to shine and win some customers and unfortunately even thought the price was reasonable it was a major FAIL and couldn't go back.

First time visiting Mulberry St. and can't say I was completely overwhelmed. First off let me say the food was amazing! However, we were stuck in a corner in what was most likely part of the storage area at one time. One side of our table was by an exit door and another by a closet door. Not the best ambiance for sure. Our waiter was semi present and we had to flag him down often for service. I didn't feel like the restaurant was understaffed, but they may have just done a good job of covering it up. I will say that I was glad we made a reservation, I heard the hostess tell a party of 4 that there was a 2 hour wait.

Service was excellent! Our server, Zoe, was very attentive and answered all of our questions with extreme professionalism and assurance. Zoe's demands was a winning factor in the outcome of a very pleasant dining experience.
The food was very tasty and flawlessly prepared.
We will definitely continue to recommend Mulberry Street Restorante to family and friends.

Wow!! Another fantastic evening at Mulberry Street. Our server, Brent, was great with recommendations, as we wanted to try other dishes besides our usual favorites. The Peppercorn Steak and Chicken Diane were fabulous!!! An evening under the stars was perfect. Will return again and again.

It was a dinner for my birthday with a close friend. The ambiance was lovely: dimly lit, upscale, with white butcher paper table “cloths”. The food was just okay. My linguini and clams with white sauce could have used more seasoning. The clams were over cooked and chewy. The coconut cake that was recommended to us by our server was overly sweet so we couldn’t finish it. I wished I had gone with my go-to dessert, which they did have as one of their choices—crème brûlée. The service wasn’t attentive. Our server barely checked on us after we ordered our mains. We had to constantly flag down anybody we spotted nearby to get us a spoon for my Friend’s cioppino, a water refill, a bread refill, and takeout boxes.

Do not order the Peppercorn steak. It was hard to cut. After four bites, I gave up and left the rest on the plate.

Food Service seemed to need help. A lot of staff working but not really together as a team. Had to ask several staff for items (refill water, refill Ice tea, delay in food delivery 45 minutes. delay in drink service. Not usually the standards that they once had.

No inside seating… It was cold outside and the heater that we requested was hardly putting out any heat… The French onion soup was really good… The oysters with clam sauce was really bad… we will not be coming back to that restaurant.

I just found it to be way over priced. Flat soda that they did not comp. Service was slow although our waiter was fine. Overall just not worth the money for me. I won’t return.

The food was good. But the service was unfortunate. Our server was really nice. But for reasons that were never explained our food took an inordinate amount of time to come. After something like 30 minutes waiting for the food to arrive our server finally appeared and apologized for the wait and said it wouldn't be too much longer. 20 minutes later he came by again and apologized again and said just another few minutes. It was another 10 minutes. So, our dinner came 60 minutes after our appetizer? and no one ever said why. Or offered us anything like another appetizer or break while we waited. Then after we finished our food he was just going to give us our check when we asked about dessert. He asked us what we would like and we asked if we could please see the dessert menu or tray (which he had watched him show everyone else) and he somewhat reluctantly went and got it. We ordered dessert and it was fine too. But neither he or the manager did anything to remedy the weird wait time. Like isn't it normal to comp the dessert? or a bottle of wine or something? NOTHING. I know because of Covid that many places are short staffed so we tried to be really patient. But at some point its just too much. I can't recommend this place because of the service. And the food. Well it's kind of like Italian Diner food. It's not very refined. It's good but heavy and a bit greasy.

A great find! Everything we tried was wonderful. We particularly liked the stuffed mushroom appetizer and the Mulberry Feast. Service was excellent, and the meal was well paced (on a busy Saturday night, too!) We left feeling relaxed and satiated.
