Wonderful food of very ample portions, served in an excellent setting. The best veal dish I've probably ever had - bravo.

Disappointing. Previous we went for a special occasion and it was terrific. The other night was not so great. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. The capelini and ravioli pasta dishes were delicious but the shrimp Francese was tasteless. The tomatoes on the burrata were terrible and I was surprised they were placed on the plate if in season tomatoes could not be found. It was expensive and not really a great value. I do not mind paying for an expensive meal but I want it to be memorable. The service was okay. It wasn't crowded and sat there for a long time waiting for a menu. Had to ask for olive oil with bread. Just simple lapses you do not expect from a high end restaurant. Go to Il Mulino in the village. That is truly great service and a memorable meal.

Love the food at all the Il Mulinos. Four of us with different taste and all very happy with our meals. Service was really good, but my husband was looking forward to his pre-dinner cheese, which didn't come. We figured maybe it's different at this location. Also, never asked if we wanted bread. Then while eating our meals we see both cheese and fabulous looking bread being served to another table! This doesn't mean that we didn't receive delicious zucchini and bruschetta, so shouldn't really complain. Will definitely go back and I'll know what to expect!

Food and service are above-par and comparable to its classic mother restaurant, but the prices were surprisingly steep. Pastas are all $30 and up, risotto is $42, branzino special was $65 (but delicious), dover sole $75. Portions were ample and could be shared, but waiter certainly did not suggest or encourage that. Excellent gluten free pasta and accommodating of special requests. This was originally supposed to be a less expensive version of Il Mulino on West 3rd according to the reviews but clearly that is no longer the case. Also, ask to be seated in the front if you want to be able to hear your dining companions.

The waiters are very very nice. They give little things for free like some cheese, and fried zucchini before the meal, and some limoncello at the end.
The food is excellent but pretty expensive - the appetizers start at in the $20 range. So go there for special occasions - or more often is money is no object for you.

A little disappointed this time. Food was only ok and for the prices they charge, the food has to be great. Our server was a bit aloof. We have gone several times before and this was subpar to what we were accustomed to for them. Maybe just a bad night? But tough to justify those prices unless everything is excellent.

Not a trip to NYC without dinner here. Absolutely hands down one of the best restaurants. Attention to detail, exquisite meals, ambience etc. The pasta and seafood is top notch and always so fresh. The grappa is fantastic and always such a great way to end the meal. The wait staff is so attentive. Will be back next time in NYC !!

This was just about the worst dining experience we have had in many years. We were seated on time for an 8:30 reservation and then things declined precipitously. We never got a straight story but apparently the kitchen was in chaos. Supposedly there was a private party for 40 people and the kitchen could not handle the large group and the rest of a restaurant at full capacity. It took over an hour for two of four appetizers to appear and they were not very good. Twenty minutes later the other appetizers showed up, a freezing cold and flavorless Caesar salad, we are pretty sure our waiter made it himself. We got a free round of drinks only when we asked. After waiting over an hour more for entrees, we left. And we were told they cancelled that order, without telling us! All around us other customers were having similar issues. Waiter and manager were beside themselves, we were not charged for anything and were offered a complimentary dinner any time, but despite our frequenting this place several times before, I expect we will not return. We had an absolutely miserable evening and wound up at L’Express at 11:00 PM because we were starving. Thank you Trattoria Il Mulino for a miserable evening. Would give zero stars if possible.

Ate very early, so was super quiet, with wonderfully attentive service. Prices are less than at Il Mulino on 3rd St, but still pricey. Worth it for most dishes, though!

I was meeting with a friend who I had not seen for some time and so requested a quiet table when I made the reservation. We were completely accommodated - even afforded a larger table at a quieter section of the restaurant. The host was welcoming and friendly as was the wait staff.

Waiter was rude and condescending to my teenage daughter and her friend who went there by themselves to celebrate a bday. Obviously if you are not spending money on alcohol they have no interest in being courteous. Charged them for bottled water when they asked for tap, and when they complained about the bill the waiter gave them a hard time. Girls felt upset and disrespected. Disgusting behavior. I will not be going there any more with my husband or business clients.

Great food and service, the only thing if i might have to say was Entre took much longer than we expected. Understand it was on Friday and kind of busy night, however, thought 50 minutes was little too long, wasn't it. Other than that, food was absolutely amazing, and service was nice and kindly, didn't had chance to taste wine, but will do it when I visit back soon in the future, can't wait.
