Description: Tucked away between the bustling streets of New York and the beach scene of the Hamptons, Il Mulino New York’s Long Island location is a destination unto itself, the perfect place to relax and enjoy fine cuisine while escaping the city. Authentic Italian preparations and flawless technique turn the day’s freshest ingredients into unforgettable meals served with the impeccable attention that is an Il Mulino New York tradition.

The formula may be getting tired. Expensive Americanized upscale sort of Italian. Unchanged for years. Dark, almost too dark to see if the meat is rare (it will be if you so order), loud crowd at the bar, everything moderately overpriced. The previous theme of too much salt has been toned down a bit, the recipes have absolutely no imagination or zing, but the ingredients maintain their quality. You start with a complementary salty oily spicey zucchini prep, a few slices of salty salami, a chip of good hard cheese, a routine bruscheta with one (and only one) mussel, and a bread basket most notable for absolutely fantastic garlic toasts. Then you get some pasta or maybe a salad, adequate but that's all. Pick ap, entree, sides, dessert. The food is good, never bad, never great, always overpriced. Same for the wine. Same for the dessert. You won't scare your boss here, but I would only go if someone else is paying.

We arrived early for a quiet drink at the bar. it soon became evident that if you were not a regular, you were basically ignored.
We anticipated the much touted pre meal table dishes. Although it is a nice touch,these were very small and not exceptional. A half mussel and tiny piece of cheese were comical. Fried zucchini was not very tasty. Bread was good but we had to ask for more.
When we ordered started to share they tried to encourage us to order larger portions which clearly was not necessary.
Our pasta was good, but not the exceptional quality it should have been especially inflight of the price and reputation.
Our mains were not all served at once. One came very late, several minutes after everyone else was finally served. . Very poor form for an alleged "fine" restaurant. The food was good, but for a $70 main, it has to be. The food was no better than our local Italian restaurant.
We will certainly not go back.

I have dined at the Long Island and Manhattan branches of this franchise, and the experience gets worse each time. The food is mediocre at best, the ambience is fixed in the 1950's, and the service is so-so. There are dozens of Italian restaurants in the metropolitan area which are superior to this place. I think in their rush to expand to Florida, Las Vegas, and Chicago the owners have lost track of their essence. Too bad. I used to love Il Mulino

Beautiful setting, romantic decor, excellent wait staff. Food tends to be pricey. Great selection of cheese and wines.
