Nice atmosphere, service was good but it was also not busy. My only real complaint is the menu is very limited.

The Shrimp Franchise and Salmon were superb. Seamless service and ambiance top notch.
I know Il Mulino from the two Manhattan locations and they are primo!

Take a pass on this Mulino location. Does not live up to its NY or Las Vegas counterparts. Food was ok at best, service was not upscale, waiter was pleasant but clueless and missed the mark on many issues and missed several dishes in our orders, never check on our meals, etc…. Service you’d expect from Olive Garden not upscale Mulinos. Food also not up to par.

This restaurant is just steps away from the craziness of downtown and the Broadway strip. It was so nice to duck into this peaceful restaurant for dinner. Our waiter was nice and the food was great.

Best Italian dinner in a long long time. Great cocktails, fresh in house made dinners, salads. Bread board with foccacia and caponata was great and I’m not a fan of caponata. The arugula pesto cream capellini was truly unique and so delicious I’m going to try to recreate it at home. Top notch experience in every way.

Food was very good. Lamb chops and salad was great. Fingerling potatoes were mushy. Pasta was cooked well but had too much sauce and not enough actual pasta. Ambiance was subpar based on pricing of food. Zero dress code mandate. Managements acceptance of ‘anything goes’ for clothing reduced any opportunity for a fine dining experience. Very noisy and hard to carry on a concentrated conversation. If your going to have a McDonalds dress code, charge McDonalds prices. Disappointed.

The food and drinks were amazing! Our waiter and his help made it even better if possible!! The only down falls was the fire alarm connected to the hotel kept going off but that was to no fault of the restaurant!! Our waiter worked very hard at his job to distract us from the false alarm. We had a GREAT girls weekend and we look forward to coming back!!!

When we booked this on open table, it showed outside seating available and we booked that for a party of 6 for a business dinner. Our guests preferred outdoor seating and we booked Trattoria for that reason. An assistant manager informed us that would not be possible as that area is closed and "no one is assigned that area" and it was too hot for guests and "dangerous" for workers. But said they were open on Fridays and Saturdays for live music no matter the temperature....It was a circular argument going nowhere the but the GM Renaud was put on the phone and he was very accommodating and opened it up for us and provided a friendly, attentive server named Karen who had no problem taking great care of us! Ask for her if you go and take good care of her like we did!

Staff was all so nice and welcoming. Took time to explain things and allow us to taste a wine or two to make sure it was what we wanted with our meals. Most of the entrees are a la carte which we made work since a few of us shared with another pasta dish. Almost everyone’s meal was really good but one of the chicken entrees was cooked a little too much and kind of ruined the juiciness. Overall is a great experience and would recommend for a nice evening out.

I book this restaurant for every concert or game downtown. This is the second time in a row for extremely poor service. Other tables around were waited on with quickness as we sat and watched. Took 15 minutes to even order a cocktail and it's not like it was busy! Had to go find the waitress after waiting 30 minutes to order our dinner. Disappointed and won't be back.
