We dined here on a whim after visiting an exhibit nearby. The bar looked good and the menu sounded great. We were not disappointed! Fantastic food, excellent service. Will definitely return!

Excellent all around! Had to wait a few minutes for our table and received a glass of champagne as we waited! Enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine, appetizers and wonderful main dishes! This is an extraordinary restaurant with superior food, a great vibe and good looking people!

We went to Wednesday steak night....lots of great food....after the usual cheese, pepperoni, etc they give you we had 2 different delicious salads and pastas....the steak was perfect with 3 sides and then 2 desserts.....the cheese cake was great for $54...

THe problem is the wine list....very long but the most inexpensive wine was $90....we got a good red wine for $100.....even the high end restaurants have more than a few bottles for much less and a cosmopolitan was $21....Some patrons will not return if they feel they are being taken. So a $54 great dinner cost us $120 each...
The service, however, was impeccaable......come on lower those wine prices.

Our waiter and food were fantastic - very happy! Only complaints were that the music was really loud to start the night - too loud, and the French 75’s we ordered were pretty warm. Otherwise, would come back any time.

This dinner experience was exceptionally bad.

The service, the food, the noise level... everything from start to finish was very, very low quality.

Service - The waiter couldn’t have cared less about us. Took forever to speak with us. Couldn’t recommend anything. And rarely came by the table throughout the meal.

Food - The wine pours were tiny. The crab cake was way (way) too much filler. The beef tartar was too salty to eat. The halibut entree was burnt to a crisp, as were the $16 Brussel sprouts - both truly inedible. The only dish that was “okay” was the frutti di mare pasta, but even this I’d give 2 out of 5 stars. Truly shocking how bad all of the food was.

Ambiance - I understand the vibe the restaurant is going for, but the music was far too loud. Also the music genre changed every 3 songs and almost every song was changed halfway through. It was as if someone had their spotify playlist plugged in but couldn’t decide what to do.

I live in Soho and dine out very often for both personal and business meals and cannot think of an experience quite as bad as this in at least the last 2 years. And at the prices charged, I will not ever return to any Il Mulino restaurant nor recommend to others.

Simply awesome. Service was impeccable!! We arrived early and decided to sit at the bar for a drink before being seated. When we finished our drinks, they said our table was ready but if we wanted a better table we could wait a few more minutes. We said we’d sit now and our table was great anyway. Shout out to Wayne, he was awesome. I’ll definitely be back.

Restaurant week menu was good, and the NY strip was excellent. However, the regular menu prices are very high and the wine list was astonishingly expensive. Almost every bottle was three figures at least and a modest pour of garden variety Pino Grigio was nearly 20, and every red wine by the glass was over 20 (for nothing that special wines). Hence my grade on “value.”

We went for Restaurant Week. Everything was excellent except for the noise level. I'm older, but sons are not and we all found it extremely noisy. This is a consistent problem in NYC restaurants.

Restaurant Week
Everything was elegant and delicious. My eggplant appetizer was delicate and scrumptious. My steak tender and perfectly cooked
My friend had the salmon, also excellent.
We will return for the terrific service and ambiance.

Overall very good experience between the food, the service and ambiance. The team did a great job helping to celebrate my wife’s birthday with surprise prosecco and tiramisu cake.

I would come back for sure.

The food was good but the waiters seemed to be tired and the service was not good for a very expensive restaurant. The wine was warm, we had to ask to be put in a refrigerator for some minutes.
We were not impressed for the famous Mulinos restaurants at all.

Met a friend for an early dinner and had a terrible experience. I’ve been to other locations and had wonderful food. But this time the food was terrible, dry spongy meatballs. But the most disturbing thing about is that the restaurant has turned into a stop on a soho happy hour bar crawl. Although it was early evening on a Tuesday I observed two drunken fights. In one a man chased a women out of the bar and hit her. There was also a man icing his black eye at the bar from a separate altercation.

I would definitely return however not with a group. The bar space is very small - which makes sense as it is a very intimate restaurant but the biggest issue was that it was SO LOUD. We had a group of 7 and had to shout and ask people to repeat themselves constantly. We were not an old group but everyone at the table complained about the sound level. The service here is outstanding, the food very good. Elvis at the bar was our best introduction to the restaurant - we got their early so we sat and had some cocktails and just enjoyed his warm and funny personality.

Everything was wonderful the food was out of this world - fresh and flavorful. The only thing that annoyed me was when we first walked in and were getting settled the waiter asked if we preferred still or bubbly water. I prefer still aka tap. I had a 9.50 charge for this on my bill. Seriously???

Kitchen was horrible. One steak was suppose to be medium was well done. Wait staff brought another and it was medium rare to rare. Second steak was suppose to be medium rare and was rare. Wait staff was attentive but they can’t overcome the horrible chef. Definitely would not recommend.
