There are not many places left of the old NY -
where a simple brunch becomes a special outing. This gem, in the heart of soho makes you fall in love with them on the first glance of music and appetizers.
Thank you for keeping the real New York city charms alive.

My 2nd time here. Kudos to the front desk staff for staying on top of the servers. We really felt welcome and well taken care of. We had come from another restaurant which was just the opposite so the warm, smiling and inviting staff was so refreshing. It was a bit pricey. The cocktails were 20$ and a glass of wine $24. Our 4person table ended up racking up a cost of 500$ incl tip which is a lot. The drinks and food were good. My branzino a little bland and luke warm but still tasty.

Date night with hubby Antique Garage did not disappoint ! From our arrival to our departure, everything was perfection. We were promptly greeted by two amazing hostesses who gladly seated us outside. Manolo our server was on point about the drinks and food recommendations. Will definitely be back.

The service is super weird: we had people asking us if we are ready to order every 30 seconds, no time given to settle in or just say hi to each other, and we were well within the allotted time. On top of that, the restaurant was empty, plenty of available tables, and very few walk-ins give the day of the week and time. So, I failed to understand the mad rush.

It’s overpriced, even by Soho standards. The food was good, but portions and quality do not justify that price.

Finally, if you are sitting outside - carry bug spray and there is a weird chemical smell that wafts in and out - nothing to do with the restaurant, or might have been just the time of day we went.

Maybe we just had a bad luck, but we left disappointed. Our waitress was attentive but she only came by a couple times and we had to flag her down for every possible thing (including the bill). Both my girlfriend and I had upset stomaches the next day. We are not 100% sure if it was the restaurant food but we both agreed we thought that it was one of the appetizers. Also, we paid a lot for what seemed like our most lackluster meal while in Manhattan this past week. All in all, we were fairly disappointed but maybe it was just a bad night for them.

The overall experience was disappointing. It’s very noisy, the service is slow and not very attentive particularly considering the price points. The lambs kebabs and the branzino were good.
I guess the food is the saving grace.

The food is just ok. The mezze platter was good. My girlfriend and I should have just have gotten the platter and a cocktail. The lamb kabob entre was mediocre. The service is also very slow. Our waiter left in the middle of the meal and there was no replacement. Bottom line-this is a unique looking restaurant in SOHO to see and be seen.

The one bright spot was the hostess...Josleyn? Very nice and wanted to make sure everyone was happy.

A nice setting with very good food though a bit pricey. Could do almost as well elsewhere for about two-thirds the price but this should not detract from the excellent meal.

For the manti I prefer Armenian style which is baked, this one is more like a dumpling.

I was completely disappointed with our meal. I’ve eaten at AG pre covid a few times and always thoroughly enjoyed my meal but this was my first time back in a year and a half and it was a huge letdown. The food was so boring, bland and basic. The prices are absolutely outrageous for what you’re served. The appetizers were good but the entrees were a huge disappointment. We ordered the branzini, salmon and tuna. None of the fish was very fresh and it was essentially flavorless. Where’s the sauce? Where’s the spices? I don’t know who they have cooking but it was honestly no good.
The cocktails were excellent but it’s a restaurant ans not a bar, why are they charging $20 a drink? It should be $16 max. When looking for Mediterranean food, go to Barbounia, Avra or Milos instead… they all blow this away.

I love this little neighborhood gem. It isn’t even my neighborhood, but I have friends who live nearby. I gladly make the trip to eat here. Great food. Mediterranean-ish—ingredients you know, put together a different way. It never disappoints.

Service was quite slow - 20 minutes until our server came over and took drink orders. Also seemed to be confusion as to who our server was.

Food was tasty but quality wasn't great for the price. The $24 glass of wine ordered was a tiny glass and filled less than half way.

Ambiance is great and had the overall cost been less then it would have passed for a casual dinner out, but the price indicates that it should be a more refined experience.

I was a bit disappointed by my experience as there are many positive reviews for this location. However, I cannot report that our server was attentive as she visited our table a total of three times, one of which we needed to flag her down as she had cleared our plates and 20 minutes later did not return to ask whether we needed anything else or the check. I was not impressed by the branzino with the side of two potato wedges, lol. My mother cooks better than this! However, my friend enjoyed her burger. Also, we were originally sat under a leaky roof, and noticed that the restaurant kept seating people at that table, and then would have to keep moving those people as they complained about a leak. Very odd that there was no communication amongst staff to not seat anyone in that area. Overall, average. When I pay those prices, especially in SoHo, I expect attentive service and food that is worth the price point. I cannot say that that was my experience.

We were greeted nicely and seated outside. It took a while to have our drink order taken. The Raki was good. Fennel and Avocado salad was good but the Tuna was over cooked and dry.

I used Open Table to let them know it was our anniversary but no one noticed the comment.

A very charming place with Brick walls and French decor. When the weather is good they open the garage door giving the place an outdoor vibe. Food was really good - the kabobs are top - and they carry one of my favorite champagne: Taittinger for a very reasonable price.

Took 45 mins to get water in our glasses and drinks ordered. The food came out all together which was fine, but we weren’t tended to for another 45 mins and the whole evening took wayyyy longer than necessary as a result. Bustling ambiance and the drinks were fantastic once we got them. Food was ok, but I would come here again for mains. Just snacks and drinks.

Antique Garage has delicious food in an eclectic atmosphere that is totally enjoyable. The food is very fresh and healthy and not overly fussy with ample portions. The service is great and attentive. We sat outside and it was very warm so the waitstaff kept offering us water! So nice!
