Babylon has recently changed names and been reinvented as Mulino, an Italian restaurant. They have kept their large outdoor lounge area with comfortable furniture and reflection pool, and the inside of the historical building was charming. The chef came from Italy specifically for this new...More

The food was average, kind of bland. The atmosphere is really neat on the flip side. I had the Marrakesh couscous, which was good but not great!

Since traveling to Morocco several years ago, I've yet to find a place anywhere in this country that makes authentic Moroccan food, so this was a real find! The bastilla was done in rolls, making it a handy finger-food for an app. We had the...More

This is a great spot to sit outside and enjoy your company. The food was really good. Highly suggest the meat and cheese plates.

Terrible service. Waiter rushed us and had awful attitude. Disappointed 20% tip automatically added to bill. Little incentive for the staff to meet minimum expectations. Negative experience overshadowed some pretty good food. Will not return or recommend to friends.

Babylon has delicious food. The servers were great! I tried the pesto chicken pizza and it was amazing!!! It was cooked in the outside kitchen. We all shares food so all of the dishes were flavorful!

We wanted something different for a change. Parking was on site, which we didn't expect. We are outside and it was lovely. Despite July heat, it was very comfortable. The court yard was nicely decorated and seating for groups to couples. Service was first rate....More

My husband and I had a very disappointing dinner at Babylon. It was our first visit. The outdoor dining beside a pool of water was enticing and peasant, but from there it went downhill. I ordered a Tanqueray gin and tonic which arrived without a...More
