We had a great experience, the only downside was that we had to wait 15 minutes to get our pre-reserved table.

Service was fine but the quality of the food was hit or miss. Two antipasti were great. The two pastas we had were not memorable and one was pretty bad.

This was our first visit to 54 Mint and it certainly won’t be the last. We’re both foodies 54 Mint checks all the boxes. The antipasto was great, we had the Veal Saltimbocca and Supli which were perfect…we each had a pasta which were prepared perfectly (Gnocchi and Amatriciana). Nice wines and the desserts were very good. If you’re looking for authentic Italian cuisine, this is a can’t miss spot.

A other great evening at 54 Mint. Service is amazing, as is the food. Incredibly good cocktails made just the way we like them. Very large wine bottle selection, but a little shoe on the bu the glass list. We eat here every chance we get.

Food was terrific, as expected, and our server Tomas was next level fantastic! We sat outdoors. The heat lamps were a little out of control (we smelled like smoke when we got home) but would absolutely go back again. Thanks for a great dinner, 54 Mint!

Worst outdoor dining experience we ever had. They use wood burning heaters which were so smoky that we could not open eyes. Inside was full and it was a cold night.

We left as soon as possible. Did not enjoy dining at all 👎

Great meal! Wasn’t expecting the truffle dinner options. I can’t eat 3 courses (small appetite) so I shared the buratta bruschetta with my husband. It was amazing! Great combination of creamy, umami, sweet & crunchy. I also shared the truffle risotto and the cacciò & pepe with my girlfriend. They were both terrific. The risotto was so rich that there was no way I could have eaten it all myself (but it would have been hard to stop eating). The caccio & pepe is always terrific. Wish I would have had room for the filet - I’m sure it would have been terrific too. The outdoor seating was very pleasant - much better than s parklet.

Cozy restaurant in the corner of Mint Plaza. Table was ready at reserved time, and we were seated in the basement dining area - kind of unique. Staff was extremely friendly; a little slow to take orders but when we did, service was prompt! Everything we had was tasty but menu a little limited; pasta fresh and perfectly cooked. Only downside was a large, very loud table of obviously drunk men using a lot of profanity and inappropriate conversation. I expected the staff to say something to them as they were pretty disruptive in such a small area, but no one did. After the table left, it was much more pleasant. Would definitely try again but ask to be seated on patio or main level.

We ate outside and were glad for heat lamps. We ordered several appetizers and all were great. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the cocktail menu as well and helped us pair items. We had the gnocchi, buccatini, and the porkchops. All were excellent. The portions were normal size not hippo size.

54 Mint features fine Italian food in a comfortable setting. I had a nice halabit in a tomato sauce. Service was a bit irregular, but only to a minor extent.

Went for brunch. The food was great, something for everyone at the table. I especially recommend the Steak & Eggs: this dish, unlike at other places, was with ribeye steak. Our server was FANTASTIC, could not have been more attentive nor fun. Atmosphere was great sitting outside with live DJ.

Nice to sit outside, although it did get cold and the heaters were minimally helpful (we were either too far or the one we were near was too weak). Food was fine - the cacio e pepe pasta was very good - but not amazing.

Had to edit (add) to this outside reservation twice as our celebration grew in size. The restaurant was so amazing and accommodating. THE FOOD! We spent most of our time praising the preparations of our meals. It was amazing evening made even more amazing by the staff. CLEARLY, they care. And they now have a set of new regulars for as long as they're around. Shoutouts to the waitstaff and chef(s) for a fantastic culinary experience.

We have eaten at 54 Mint several times. This was by far the worst experience. We ordered several appetizers which were pretty good. We ordered four pastas none of which came out hot. The worst was the carbonara which was room temperature at best.
I think they are suffering from a shortage in the kitchen.
Our plan is to wait several months before a return visit.
