Too few waiters for the number of customers. Took 1hr 40 min to receive main dish, and we were there early before crowd. Too expensive for poor service.

Seated promptly and wait staff was very good. It took more than an hour for the entries to come from the kitchen. To our disappointment it arrived cold and we decided to get the check. Been to the restaurant many times with good experiences. Maybe running a restaurant during a pandemic was too taxing.

The food was delicious. I was just disappointed that we wanted a couple of bottles of wines and they didn’t have it but I understand because of COVID-19. Other than that it was really good.

The place seems a draw for wannabe bad boys and attractive young women wanting to meet them, but I would be embarrassed to bring my Italian relatives here for a meal.

They should really skip the greasy toast, non-Italian parmesan, greasy fried zucchini and tasteless bruschetta brought to the table when you first sit down.

We had OK Prosciutto mediocre grilled octopus, and a commercial desert tartufo.

Service was fine.

We have been going to Il Mulino Uptown for years. We were so happy to go during this COVID time. They had a nice set up of tables outside. It was great to see the staff that we knew working. I give them a ton of credit. Running around with a mask and never missing a beat. Il Mulino was fantastic as usual. We plan on going back again in a couple of weeks to support them during this time.

Love the food at Il Mulino
So glad they have a midtown location
Outdoor seating on the street - next to Phillipe
They just need to add flower pots like Philippe Chow did
Many large trucks pass by but still a lovely experience
Food - EXCELLENT

IL Mulino is back with a wonderful outdoor social-distanced space that is really great. Of course food and service is just as top notch as it always is. So happy to be back. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful meal and world class service and care.

IlMulino Uptown is a fantastic restaurant. It starts with a smile at the front counter, super attentive wait staff seating us and immediately serving gratis delicious cheese (carved table side from a large cheese wheel), zucchini, bruschetta, and sausage, and drink orders to quench our thirst. Then the superb appetizers (don’t miss the mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato, and red pepper appetizer) and salads. The main courses were all excellent ranging from my chicken capricciosa (not even on the menu) to the lobster spaghetti to the veal to the salmon. On top of all this best Italian cheesecake we have ever had. And service friendly, attentive, and unobtrusive. Relatively quiet also even with a full dining room. A great experience worth every penny.

Overpriced and overrated place. Average food. What we didn’t like is that we arrived for a late lunch (2 pm) and by the end of our lunch there was almost nobody to wait for us since they were all busy having their own lunch in the restaurant. I don’t intend them not to eat but if you have guests they should be priority and don’t leave them almost without service. Having lunch in the same premise as clients ?? Not sure about it while the clients are eating. Doesn’t look good for me.
Won’t come back

The food was great. Service was quick. The only issue was space. Given the small space, the tables are very close to the point that tables have to be moved in order to be seated

Well, il Mulino was a disappointment!
Service wasn’t great for such a large staff - we were accosted by severs as we were seated which was overwhelming, but then it took a while to place our food order. The food was overpriced: calamari was average, chicken and steak were good.
They were out of both wines I wanted. The first replacement was too sweet, the second was ok but I know the wine and it’s cheap at the store but the markup was significant ($10 liquor store wine for $70!).
The tables are too close together and it feels very crowded. The noise level was high making it difficult to have a conversation.
It was way too dark - I had to use my phone flashlight to eat!
Overall, do not recommend!

I went to the uptown location. Within seconds of sitting down we were greeted with light appetizers including salami, bruschetta and a zucchini dish. We were then promptly greeted by a server who got our drink orders. My glass of water was never empty. The staff was superb. They were so attentive and made the dining experience very enjoyable. This isn’t a quiet setting but I don’t mind the noise. I think it makes the atmosphere more upbeat. My mom and I split the veal parm and arrabbiata pasta. They were nice enough to split them on two plates for us! Then we finished the meal with tiramisu which was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend if you want a 5 star dining experience
