The food was ok, and the service was not good. No comparison with the original il mulino.

Food was really good but there were a large party of 20 when we dined and so we had to wait over 1.5 hrs for our food to come. Just wished that the restaurant had anticipated the large party better so that other customers are not compromised.

Would come back for the food, but will call ahead to check if they have a large party lol!

The food was good - complimentary starters included bread, cheese, meat, and fried zucchini which was incredible. I got the wild salmon for the main - also great with a little kick to it which i was not expecting.

The only negative thing I have to say is that we made a reservation for Restaurant Week. However when we got there, they said they don't do restaurant week dinners on Saturdays. This was not specified anywhere that I could find on their website, online restaurant week menu, nor the restaurant week website. We ended up staying since we were already there but it definitely put a damper on the evening.

We made a reservation for restaurant week through that website. Nowhere was mentioned that it doesn’t apply for the weekend. Rather the opposite. The dates mentioned included today.
Restaurant did not honor it

It was good but it looks like they are understaffed and their waiters are too busy. However, we got a waiter who spoke Spanish and he was really great to us.

Terrific meal, our first at Il Mulino Prime SoHo. Asked for outside table and one was reserved for us, on the sidewalk. Perfect for those worried about adequate ventilation while dining. Service was outstanding, jocular but attentive. Food was tops. Wine list expensive, but wonderful.

We came here for a nice Sunday dinner before the long work week ahead. The waiter was very brusque. When bringing the wine to our table he was annoyed to have to describe the wine when asked about them. Also, as we were finishing our meal, the unapologetic staff closed the windows less than 2 feet in front of us and proceeded to shut the blinds. There was a complete disregard for our dining experience. We felt as if we were inconveniencing the staff the entire time. My main pasta dish was surprisingly good, but not enough that I would return given the service.

We went for Restaurant Week, which was a good way to experience fine dining on a moderate scale. There was a complimentary chef selection of cheese, salami and bread, which was lovely. As part of the special menu, a couple of us ordered steak since the restaurant was listed as a steakhouse. Unfortunately, both steaks were tough and had no flavor—much to our surprise. The salmon and desserts were absolutely delicious. Because the restaurant door and windows were left open, we could hearing the booming loud music from across the street. Overall, the dining experience was ok but definitely I expected a better steak!!

Go elsewhere!

I remember the old excellent restaurant that I’ll Mulino used to be. Now it is almost like a franchise. The waiter was almost surly after I requested he bring the restaurant week menu that he neglected to bring at first. The steak was thin and ordinary. Ambiance at this “storefront” location was modern to the point of nonexistent. Poor value even at discounted price. I was quite disappointed and believe you will be as well. Get a steak at a real steakhouse. I’ll Mulino no longer deserves the brand name of I’ll Mulino of yesteryear.

I have been going to IL Mulino for years especially when you were popular. On Tuesday July 20th,7:15 reservation Tarantino, my wife and kids went there with their significant others to celebrate my son's birthday. Well it was a disaster. They were rushed to make selections on food and when it came to the wine not one but three different people came over and tried to hurry up the process changing pages while they read the wine menu. To say they got the bums rush is an understatement. i called the following day and spoke to Elana sorry if I got her name wrong, she said she was sorry for the experience and that her supervisor would get back to me. Guess what still no response I called back today spoke to her and she was shocked that no one has gotten back to me. Well to me that just means IL MULINO DOESN"T CARE. In the current environment with the NYC coming back we all try to help but I guess you guys think you don't need us so when I get asked about my review I will give it.

The service was outstanding- we were greeted with a smile and felt extremely welcomed. The complimentary starters were amazing, and the entrees did not disappoint. If you’re looking for a special occasion restaurant, this is as good as it gets.

We went to Il Mulino Prime for my twins’ birthday. The food and service were fantastic. I had a pasta special with lamb ragu that was delicious! The restaurant was a little smaller than I expected, but it’s pretty and great for people watching in Soho.

The service was despicable and the food was a shame... way to expensive for what it was! We were actually shocked how overpriced the food was! extremely disappointed and would definitely not recommend this place. $4.95 for 1 oyster I mean are they nuts???? And don't get me started on the sides and meat...!
I felt robbed leaving this place.

I’ve liked Il Mulino in the past. Service this time was pretty bad. The waiter had an attitude and just expected us to know the unlisted menu items. Strange. Food was delicious but given its NYC there are so many amazing Italian restaurants that would be happier to serve you. Don’t think I’ll be returning.

I had made a 5:30pm mothers day reservation for my wife and 3 children. Unfortunately when I arrived I was told my table was not ready and I could go wait in the car. Keep in mind this place is tiny!!! When I asked why my reservation was not available they said that it started to rain so they moved the outdoor reservations inside taking my reserved table. There were a couple of open tables for two next to each other, so I asked why they could not move them together to accommodate us? The hostess replied that they were reserved (seriously you gave away my reserved table!) We decided to wait since it was mothers day and I'm sure anywhere else would have been booked. A table got up and they sat us at a very small table not for 5 people! In order to accommodate the outdoor diners that were brought inside they had the patio doors wide open so their table was half in and half out of the place. We were freezing!! So basically they accommodated one table so that all of the other tables could freeze. An extremely uncomfortable dinner was had by all...you could see other diners complaining about the cold. The food was pretty disappointing having been to other Il Mulino's in the past. Our lump crab meat was shredded crab!! Of course none of this was the waiters fault.
