The service at Il Mulino New York, a restaurant inside Miami’s Acqualina Resort & Spa, is formal and attentive. The staff is gracious and will do their best to accommodate you, telling you right away that if there’s something they can modify on the menu – they’ll be happy to comply with your request. Servers, many of whom are Italian, are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and are quick to make recommendations, highlighting all of the most popular dishes at this Italian eatery. Literally a minute after you sit down, you’ll witness an orchestrated ballet of servers bringing you complimentary antipasti, including a hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano carved out of the wheel before your eyes, salami, fried zucchini and bruschetta. They don’t miss a beat. Likewise, your food arrives promptly and plates are cleared at an appropriate pace but no one is rushing you out the door. The staff at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant will offer you freshly grated pepper and check up on you throughout your meal, while still allowing you to enjoy your dinner at your own pace. It’s definitely old-school service — expect an all-male chorus of waiters dressed in white ties — but all in all, you should feel very pampered at Il Mulino New York.
