Food was good, service was solid, but pricing was ridiculously high. On a Sat night at 8pm, it was pretty empty, which created a pretty lame atmosphere and made us feel like the only suckers paying a fortune for Italian food in a city where good Italian food is plentiful. Hard to justify their way off-market pricing.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. From the initial greeting with a compliment of cheese, bruschetta and veggies to the finish with delicious desserts. Our waiter was attentive and was truly invested in our dining experience. The pastas were fantastic. We ordered the “Italian Flag” as an appetizer for the table. It was recommended by the waiter and consisted of three different pasta dishes. The only negative was the lamb osso buco, which was a BIG disappointment. The waiter highly recommended it and it was tough. The waiter did the right thing though, as he did not charge us for it and gave us dessert on the house . Our dining experience for our son’s birthday will be remembered!

It was odd. We entered a restaurant that was half-filled -- lots of open tables. And the management asked us to wait in the bar. We waited for ten minutes. When I finally approached the management about this he offered no explanation and offered to seat us shortly. We waited another five minutes and then were seated. It was very strange.

Once our waiter greeted us all was okay.But I don't think I'd ever go back here...It just felt very disrespectful...

Service was spotty at best. Food was sub-par. Hot appetizers came out cold. Entrees were a big dissapointment. Drinks were unbelievably skimpy and ridiculously overpriced. Never again.

Outrageously expensive. $70 for Osso Buco , $52 for Snapper. Food was good but took ridiculously long while the waiters pushed drinks. No atmosphere at all. Not a good place. No value.

Was surprised to see the prices nearly doubled. For a 'trattoria' and not the full 'Il Mulino' the prices are too expensive. $50 for a chicken parm? Really?

The contemporary Italian vibe was lovely, but warmed up nicely with tablecloths. We were welcomed by everyone on the staff and met with fried zucchini, freshly baked focaccia and a chunk of Parmesan . Veal Marsala was wonderful and our pasta dishes were equally good. The serving staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Lovely neighborhood spot and we will be going back on our next trip to town.

Restaurant had an older crowd, but it was still fun. Food was OK , but service was superb. This restaurant was more expensive than your typical Italian spot. Great location but super loud. Could barely hear the waiters.

Simply awful, terrible seating, noise level,
Ordering ( captain was scattered ) food was poorly timed , octopus burnt, pasta over cooked .....complementary chips swimming in garlic and oil. And why , why offer crisp bread and then an amuse Bouch of bruschetta.

Celebrated my birthday here and it was truly amazing. The staff ensured that our party of 10 was very comfortable and accomodayed our every need! Food was absolutely delicious. We brought our own cake and was charged per slice to cut the cake but that was the only negative experience as that price was equivalent to another cake. Otherwise, great ambiance, food and extremely attentive and friendly staff. I would go back again for another large party occasion or simply for date night

Food was at best mediocre. The staff was gracious and professional. They overcooked branzino almost impossible and both my mother in law and I got sick from it. Basically they need to concentrate on food quality.

I have been to the other Il Mulino restaurants in NYC. The food here is not quite at the quality of the other two so that was disappointing. However, the service was amazing and the atmosphere was wonderful. Would come back again to give it a second try.
