Il Mulino New York - Miami Ratings and Reviews
A great favorite of ours, we thought thi ...
A great favorite of ours, we thought this restaurant was the BEST Italian in Miami. Unfortunately that may not be true anymore.
Admittedly we went there for Christmas dinner, a 6 o’clock reservation for which wen were promptly seated. It got “crazy busy” within a half hour of our arrival. I get it, Christmas day dinner, so let’s give them a break, and forget the 45-minute wait between the pasta course and the entrée.
Onto the food, should that also be sacrificed? The small plates that they give you upon your seating are no longer the taste treats I remember. A good-enough piece of Parmesan cheese accompanied with 4 tiny discs of a traditional dry salami (you’d think it was gold they were giving away) and some VERY spicy (I like warm, but these were mouth-burning hot) fried zucchini.
My partner had the Carpaccio Beef (he thought it was good) and I started with the Shrimp Oreganata, good enough. Next, we ordered the Capellini Il Mulino, a signature dish. There was so much wrong here – the pasta was overcooked, the sauce was so thick that the pasta just “globbed” together, and, as if that weren’t enough, it totally lacked any flavor.
This is where the 45-minute wait starts.
I ordered the Veal Capriccio, and my partner order his favorite, Veal Saltimbocca. We also ordered a side of Escarole with beans. This is the story of quantity (huge portions) over quality. I didn’t remember any of this on our previous visits. We got the check, and took home the entrees. No, I don’t know why we did that.
Our server started off great, then we were abandoned; in all fairness, his section was a madhouse, and other servers did fill in.
A manager did stop by to ask if we enjoyed everything, we told him about the “endless” wait for our entrée and he offered us coffee and desert. But why would we accept his offer, when we had no reason to believe it would have come in a timely fashion? Wait another 45 minutes for free coffee and a piece of cheesecake? I don’t think so.

Fan. Tas. Tic. I will definitely be coming back. If I could give 10 stars for service, I would. We were a group of 7 for Christmas brunch. As with groups, there are always differing opinions of where to sit. We finally agreed on sitting outside which was lovely but a bit windy for some, and we couldn't hear the music from inside. So, after everyone had stuffed themselves to their hearts content, we moved inside for dessert. They were gracious enough to set up a table for us inside and our server continued to serve us. (I didn't catch her name but she was wonderful). The music was great, the food was great. All of this for a bargain of $65/adult and $35/child. Must go again.

Gloomy, strangely run-down place with simply awful supposedly Italian food. Despite the best efforts of a mostly clueless staff, the nose bleed prices are not warranted by the dining experience. Everything here is too spicy, from the breads to the pasta, even the cocktail sauce tasted like pure Tabasco. Proteins, especially seafood, were third rate. Overall, not the kind of dining experience you expect in some place like the Acquarella.

the thanksgiving turkey, potatoes, veggies were delicious'. side portions were a little small. the stuffing was weird and more like horse feed - dry and lackluster. chef needs top put some gusto into the stuffing with a northeastern twist, sausage chunky and hearty. staff is always courteous, efficient and accommodating.

The service is truly outstanding, impeccable. The room is too dark. It's not subdued lighting like in romantic; it's way too dark like in seance. We went at 5:30 yet the waiter did not present the Sunset Menu. We asked for it. The Sunset Menu is excellent and reasonable. Three courses for $49. The wine list is prohibitive. In fact, it's difficult to find a wine under $100 per bottle. The coffee was disappointing. The bill had an error. Dinner for two with tip was nearly $300 and we ordered off the Sunset Menu. So, at these prices, Il Mulino becomes more of a special occasion place.

Fancy fancy fancy. Went here for my wife's bday. The only hiccup was timing. I made a reservation for 10pm but was finally seated around 10:30. The restaurant made this problem up to us by laying rose pedals on the table. Very romantic and the wife was happy with the overall experience.

Inconsistent, a lot to desire ! Not what We expected - we are very familiar with both NY & Sobe Mulino locations & the one in Aqualina has lot to improve in order to be equal to the other two !
Wait staff not to the standards of such a Hight reputation & location !
What a disappointment !!

Have been there several times for dinner. Love it. This was the first time for lunch. Happened to be Miami Spice. Had the appetizers, table not cleared. Waiter brings out entrees and appetizer plates are still on the table. Room not overly crowded so don't understand the slip shod service.
Tip (party of two) added to bill. Waiter explains they do that for breakfast and lunch. Huh?
Not as good as I expected it to be.

What a memorable experience! The waitstaff accommodated any requests we had, the table was decorated with rose petals to honor our special occasion, and whenever we needed something, someone was right there not even 5 steps away. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time, food was so good! Overall, a wonderful experience and highly recommend this place.

Hard to get better service than here and the food is nothing short of excellent. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. The menu is pricey, but the quality is superb all the way around. And it is housed in a beautiful luxury resort.

The food, ambiance and service at Il Mulino is impeccable! Love the fresh carved parmesan cheese from the wheel and the array of delicious breads. The red snapper entree was fresh and perfectly cooked with just the right amount of seasoning and covered with mini scallops and shrimps. The fresh home-made tiramisu and fresh home-made whip cream with fresh berries was to die for! Just an awesome evening of delicious food, great scenery and unsurpassed service! :) I have already recommended this place to several of my friends! I would definitely come back to Il Mulino's the next time I'm in town.
