Food was great, but the service was sub standard. Not our waiters fault, he was wonderful. But had too many tables. We sat outside bc it was a beautiful evening. But saw diners inside turn tables over twice before we got our food. Took two hours to get our dinner served. By the time it arrived, it was too late to eat such a heavy meal and had to take it home. Saw the bartender also serving.

We were very well served by our waiter John seated outside in a nice, segregated area. Great wine selection and timeliness of food delivery was perfect. I would say that the apps were a little skimpy (baked clams & meatballs) yet tasty. My double cut veal chop was perfect! Overall, a non-compromised COVID dining experience.

I called TWICE in advance to remind them of a SURPRISE birthday candle for my date. Not only to the hostess (who I spoke with on the phone both times) foolishly wish her a happy birthday as soon we walked in to foil the surprise which I explicitly stated was a secret, but I had to wait over a half hour after our meal and ASK for the birthday candle dessert after all that. Horrible disgusting service for what was such a simple ask!!!!

Incredible in every way. Food was sublime, best meal by far that we have had in NYC in recent memory. The Caesar salad was light but so flavorful, the filet mignon with truffle butter was the best steak we ever had (all three of us who ordered it agreed), and the the attention and service by our server was super. The wine and bourbon selection was also terrific. Because prices are high, I’d say Il Mulino Prime is more a special occasion rather than every day place, but we will be back for many more occasions!

The waiter BERATED us at the end of the meal, simply because we were overheard complaining that it was taking too long to process 4 credit cards to split. Very rude, near to the point of the guy being confrontational.

So disappointing. From dried breadsticks to meh focaccia to an overly salty, overly chopped Caesar and incredibly over salted linguine with white clam sauce, this was one of the worst meals I’ve had in New York. Ever. And it was over $100 per head.

I used to frequent the original Il Mulino in the Village and it was one of my favorite Italian spots in the City. This franchise, separate location delivered even worse than Olive Garden.

Service was excellent, but the food destroyed our night.

This was my first time dining at Il Mulino Prime in Gramercy, and I was absolutely blown away. The dining room is absolutely beautiful, and they have a lovely outdoor set-up, as well. The linguine with mixed seafood was simply out of this world, and the tiramisu was amazing. My server Marcelo and the hostess Jessica were both superb, and made certain that my meal was perfect. For a prime dining experience, Il Mulino Prime in Gramercy cannot be topped.

The night started out bad as the hostess was awful didn’t know how to speak to us or other customers Spoke down to us all as if we didn’t know how to make a reservation. Requested to eat inside and she was like nope you did not request inside your sitting outside or nothing. I was like I didn’t request outside and the app does not say must request inside even if you put standard. If the hostess had the common sense and said we know there is issue with the reservation system and are working to correct it, instead she became confrontational and we watched this happen atleast four other times with other diners. Now to the food. All the servers were great and the food was awesome. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time and the pappardelle with the veal ragu was outstanding. Overall great experience. It was even alot of fun sitting outside watching the hostess have to deal with all the customers who expected to sit inside and be pushed outside without any remorse. One set of customers complained so hard they finally got moved inside by another manager. Hostess would not even look at the outside clients in the eyes. Wow a great meal and a free show called Hostess who cares NOT.

The whole dining experience From start to finish was wonderful. Our server, Arnold, was so welcoming and on top of everything all night long. All the appetizers we had were Delicious including Cesar salad, tuna tartare, clams oreganato and meatballs. Nothing was left on our plates. I would highly recommend the branzino or prawns over risotto for dinner, although there was not one dish our party ordered that we didn’t love. Arnold gave the best recommendations and was ultra patient with all our questions. He is a a perfect representation of top service. We will definitely be back.

The ambiance was clean and very modern. They have a beautiful space. Our waiter suggested a great bottle of a medium red wine that we finished. The ravioli were delicious but a bit over sauced. The tortellini were also very good — tender and well seasoned. For dessert we ordered the tiramisu and it some of the best we ever had. Overall, this was an excellent Sunday dinner.

We had such an amazing evening at I’m Mulino. The food was wonderful as always - the homemade pasta particularly - but it was the service that made the meal outstanding and special. It was also the first time we had eaten indoors since the pandemic started and we really appreciated the spacing and the separators between the tables. We’ll be back again soon.
