Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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

Lovely restaurant and pleasant staff! I went alone for my birthday and my bill was a little under €200 just to manage your expectations. I had starters, main course and desert. You must try the blue lobster to complete the experience! It was soo good....I love the atmosphere and would definitely go back!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

I’m still trying to decide if I really enjoyed the dinner here or not. The occasion was the 30th birthday of my fiancée. I was looking forward having heard and read really good opinions on the restaurant. The restaurant: The garden court is really beautiful,...we almost forget to be in the center of Milan. Its very quite and the design is just amazing. The Service: Here my doubt start a bit. I think for a two stars Michelin the service it’s not up to standard. I wrote and been to one star restaurant with a much higher quality service. I had reserved a surprise cake and the commis asked to my fiancé for desserts making us to have a double dessert… The food: Lets start saying that three menus were impressive, just i thought that some plate were out of place for the season and the combination in two menus of some dishes were not my personal favorite. Indeed we had a la carte dinner and we liked the proposal. The day after and still now i think the experience it’s not of a two starsMore

My husband and I brought our family to Italy after years of postponing due to Covid. We made a reservation at Seta for the two of us one night during our stay and we were looking forward to it. Unfortunately, the day before our reservation...one of our three daughters became ill with Covid. As if it wasn't enough to deal with a family member getting Covid during our trip, when I tried to call and cancel our reservation, I waited for several minutes and then was hung up on while waiting. To add even more insult to injury, we were charged $200 USD for not showing up. I provided documentation of the attempted call and the management refused to honor our request for a refund. If they are so desperate for funds, they should try investing their money rather than robbing from people in a vulnerable situation.More

We booked Seta well in advance to visiting Milan from Australia and it did not disappoint our expectations. Be sure to not go with a full stomach as they will serve a fair amount. If you are looking for a FINE fine dining experience with...world class service and a beautiful outdoor courtyard seating then this may just be a place for you. However, I would highly recommend visiting the menu online prior to booking as this restaurant is not for each and everyone. The presentation of each dish is served immaculately on Fornasetti porcelain and taste divine. It is an experience to share with somebody special.More
