We came from south Jersey and had dinner early here on a Saturday before seeing the tree. There was only one other table in the dining room so it was very quiet which is surprising because the food was amazing! The flavors reminded me of my childhood when my mother used to cook for me, you can definitely tell that the chef uses quality ingredients. The service was spot on, and I’m definitely saddened by the fact that indoor dining will again be closing. I hope this restaurant survives the pandemic because we will definitely be back!

Our family stopped by for a quick lunch, but we ended up spending a good amount of time ordering drinks and food. Everything was delicious, the host made us feel so warm and took care of us really well. Definitely recommend this lovely find. Rare to see such exceptional service unlike some other busy manhattan restaurants. Okra casserole was the highlight - it’s a must try for vegans and vegetarians. We’ll definitely be back here!

Food was authentic, tasted wonderful, and reasonably sized portions for the lunch special price. Servers were extremely attentive, but service overall was slow because the restaurant was full - and also because it appears (like many restaurants these days) they had to focus a lot of attention on delivery orders.

Food was good, service was excellent. However, first impressions not so much. Almost no tables visible from
Street and front entrance looked less than appealing so we started thinking about going to another restaurant. Glad we stayed as once you get past the front the primary restaurant was warm and appealing. Curb appeal could be improved.

I love this restaurant. The food is outstanding and the portions are plentiful. The owners and staff are very welcoming. I have been their twice and the waiters are attentive and professional. The feeling of the place is low key. Of all the restaurants that I go to in NYC, this is my favorite. Go to the restaurant. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

Still find this a wonderful restaurant near the heart of the Broadway Theater District. Great prix fixe choices. Enjoys the Turkish meat balls this time. Love the wine list. Moderately priced.

Excellent lunch. Three of us shared a bunch of mezes that were delicious and fresh, as well as soups, Turkish rice pudding and Turkish lemonade. The service was kind and attentive and the restaurant (and bathroom!) were clean and tidy. It's not fancy - hard table, no tablecloths - so go elsewhere for a special meal but it's a great place for a midtown meal and close to the theatre district.

The food was amazing! Best Baba Ghanoush we ever had, and the grape leaves were incredible too. The hummus was the perfect blend of creamy and chunky, great texture. The chicken kabobs were tender juicy and plentiful definitely enough to share especially after appetizers. Tzatiki was flavorful, only complaint was we wanted more(which our waiter was happy to bring) also enjoyed the spicy red sauce, though not sure what it was. We would definitely recommend this place for a quaint relaxing dinner with family and friends.

We shared the cold mezze and two main dishes between 4 adults.... there were leftovers in the olate.

All the food was lively and portions quite generous. The only fault was the noise level. They need to absorb more of the noise between tables. Add fabric. Place rugs. Something to adjust the acoustics.

Service was very nice. Beyond attentive and timely.

This popular spot was busy on Christmas night. We ordered the appetizer sampler for the table an individual main courses. The lamb burger was delicious, as was the lamb kebab. We ordered pickled vegetables which provided a nice complement to the spicier dishes. The location was in a high traffic area. I wouldn’t take a cab to the door next time I go during the holidays. The service was attentive without being intrusive.

My friend and I had a full appetizer spread with bread but the dishes that stood out to me were the Baba Ganoush and Pink Sultan. I am not a huge fan of beets but it was prepared different from what I am used to, it was very creamy. The Baba Ganoush had such great flavor and was a great compliment to the bread. The Turkish bread was crunchy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside. It was very addicting, I couldn't get enough of it. For drinks we had Red Sangria which was full of different fruits, I enjoyed it.

For our entree we opted for the Salmon in Vine Leaves and Chicken Shish Kebab. The salmon and chicken were flavorful and very juicy.

Overall I had a good experience at this restaurant. The presentation of every dish shows that they pay attention to detail. The staff was attentive and made me feel welcomed. Hopefully next time I’ll try their Gyros and rice pudding!

Loved the new decor! The ambiance was really inviting, fresh and bright. Cant say enough about the food, The flavours were just there, enough herbs, enough salt, and so fresh. The wine menu looks very large as well, great choices from the Mediterranean. We tried the Ancyra Turkish red wine and it accommodated our meals very well.

Food was OK not great. It’s pretty expensive relative to the flavor and uniqueness of the dishes. I would have been happy at about 50-60% of what I paid, which was a buck and five for two entrees (one veg), a three-item veg appetizer assortment, a beer and two bevs. Atmosphere is nice and service good. We were there around 6 on a Saturday.

This is one such a lovely restaurant. Being a Turkish food fan I would highly recommend this spot, the spices and the herbs used were very authentic. The Turkish gyro was nothing different than the one I had in Istanbul/Turkey. They compliment you this Turkish bread with home made olive paste and start serving you slowly from appetizers and entrees. At no point there was a rush, staff is well aware of hospitality. It was great having a conversation with them. The ambiance is really bright and beautifully modern. Highly recommend this to friends.

This was my third visit to AnTalia. The first two times, I enjoyed the food, which was well-prepared and delicious. This third time, I noticed that the restaurant space got a nice makeover, but the Iskender kebab I ordered was the worst I have ever tasted. It was not presented well on the plate and it was a complete disappointment. The lamb was sliced scraps that were overcooked and tough, the yogurt was cold and was not integrated into the dish, and there was one wedge of tomato. It looked like the food was thrown together and that the cook did not actually know what Iskender kebab is supposed to be. Terrible. The waitress was very nice, but I will not be visiting this place again. Very sad.
