This is honestly one of the best fine dining experience I've had during the past couple years. We were already blown away by the amuse bouche and the food were simply amazing. The ingredients were so fresh and all the dishes were very unique unlike...anything we've had before. Service was warm and the wait staff were lovely. Sadly our schedule were really tight so we couldn't opt for the tasting menu but if we do go back to Milan we'd definitely give them a try. Thank you everyone for making us so happy!More

A unique dining experience at Chef's table in Sete. Been the only table in the kitchen, it was really fun to watch and hear the team in action. Everything is in such good order, no shouting, very clam, just like sitting in your own home....It is an open space however you have enough privacy, no one stares at you, only you there to watch. Chef Antonio greeted us, and the services from the team were excellent. When I say team, yes, we have been talking to three or four of them who were looking after us very well, they are super friendly and attentive. Highly recommended for couple or solo.More

This was by far one of my worst experiences ever at a Michelin star restaurant. The staff was not very kind, not at all welcoming and the food left much to be desired. Furthermore, the wines were excellent- the pours were just about a sip...each. For the price, we could have bought a couple bottles of very fine wine. I am sorry but cannot recommend this restaurant.More

Stellar experience at Seta! While visiting Italy I knew I wanted to try one of the many Michelin star restaurants it has to offer, and I’m glad I chose Seta. From beginning to end, the experience was magical! Every bite was both interesting and delicious....The staff executed our meal flawlessly and even provided a special treat to celebrate my wife’s birthday! Although expensive it was well worth it!More

We haven’t really had the chance to try local traditional Italian food in Milan "yet" .🤷🏻‍♀️ Our first day was a memorable lunch at 2 michelin-starred restaurant Seta at Mandarin Oriental. It was great, lots of complimentary amuse bouche which, made sense in preparing us...for the main lunch. Service was excellent, however, we came in around 2ish and by 3:30ish, the restaurant was empty, including our original servers. Everyone dissappeared after the cheese course without saying anything to us (which usually most fine dine place would do especially our main server going for a break). So we just find that the journey dining at Seta was somewhat incomplete. Overall Chef Antonio Guida did an magnificent job in creating each plate, not only was his presentation was like piece of art but it was delicate and savoury. Again, it made sense. Many chefs tried so hard to make their own cooking "fusion" but being overly creative can make their customers tastebuds into the journey of “confusion”. 😂🤣 Luckily, that wasn’t the case here with Chef Antonio Guida.More

The title of this review is pretty conclusive! We absolutely loved our evening at the Chef's Table. I won't spoil the surprise of the food, but each course was exceptional, some simple yet delicious and others more complex & well thought out. Service was fantastic,...we were made to feel welcome, our glasses were never empty & staff were all knowledgeable about what they were serving. We wouldn't hesitate to return here.More

This 2-Michelin-star restaurant is located inside the Mandarin Oriental Milan with modern, romantic ambiance. I went for the Seta’s tasting menu which was a bit too creative for my taste. Being said, every dish was carefully crafted with the highest attention. If I am back,...I would go for à la carte with the below 2 dishes (pictured), which were impressive. Blue Lobster: this Brittany gem was slightly undercooked to expose the slight crunch and sweetness of the meat while still preserving expected lobster flesh texture. Well done. Risotto: who can do risotto better than the Italians? However, the raspberry cream was the star for providing an interesting kick to the dish.More

Unquestionably the most disappointing dinner of our entire 25th anniversary trip to Italy was at 2* Seta (Italian for Silk) at the Mandarin Oriental Milan on our first night. It’s a beautiful courtyard setting, but the service was downright unworthy of even a single Michelin...star. After getting water, it was about 45 minutes before we saw our first food. I had to ask for and complain to the manager, but all I got were empty platitudes. Apparently, while I was in the restroom later during the meal, the manager apologized to my husband and indicated they were short staffed — but still offered no service recovery whatsoever. Most unimpressive. We might have been able to overlook the service faux paux had the meal been better — but way too many courses had the same off-putting briny flavor profile. And I normally love briny. It seemed that the kitchen was as short staffed as the service team. Presentations were nice, but it all was more pomp than circumstance. There was no course that really impressed us. Two stars? I think not. I haven’t been this negative toward a 2* restaurant since 2* Commis in Oakland — but even that had at least nice food and great service. We would never return.More

I am a regular customer at Mandarin Oriental not only in Milan. The Staff is excellent as always, but this review is about Seta Restaurant Chef Antonio Guida. We chose via della Seta degustation menu, which is an amazing journey trough perfectly matched flavors. Chef...Guida came to welcome us and I expressed my deep appreciation for his cuisine with just one comment about the lobster plate, which, according to my personal taste had a too uniform flavor. Chef Guida surprised me with the next plate which was prepared just for me: a surprise. I cannot describe in words how that plate was amazing: the pungent taste of the sea urchin ice cream, combined with other ingredients like fish tartare and sea cream. The opposite but complementary flavors were creative and lively notes in my mouth, as if the sea itself were speaking to me. I have never tried anything so artistic and perfect. For me there are no doubts that Chef Guida deserves the third star Michelin, he has perfect mastery of ingredients and know how to create a masterpiece. Thank you Chef Guida for this unexpected surprise and for your humble personality. Stefano MagniMore

My husband and I had a really lovely meal here. We often do tasting menus as we like trying new things and Seta didn't disappoint! We arrived early and had n aperitif in the bar. The bar is gorgeous and drinks and snacks were really...tasty, a good taste of what was to come. Our waiters and sommelier were simply wonderful and clearly very passionate about what they do! Their English was absolutely fantastic. We do speak some Italian but not enough to explain a tasting menu and we had some great conversations with them about the food and wine. The food was divine! Every plate was so well balanced, and honestly I would have loved to have the whole menu again if I wasn't completely stuffed! The wine pairing was brilliant as well and really added to the dishes. This was the first night on our gastronomic road trip of Emilia Romagna and we couldn't have made a better start. Thank you all the chefs and staff at Seta!More
