    When we first got there the greeting was great but the food and service was ok. The food was bland no taste and expensive for no reason. The portion is small and they were rushing us, I wanted to try Korean bbq and I did but the food was not really good. The staff was nice but they like to rush people.

    Celebrating my sister’s birthday with some Korean BBQ! Our server at table B5 on Sunday 09/04/22 was absolutely wonderful. She was fun and engaging. We talked about music and our love of food. She gave great suggestions and cooked our beef to perfection. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!! I wanted to finish every single bite. We ordered Bulgogi, Kimchi Jigae, Egg soufflé with cheese, and beef to grill. My favorite was the meat and stew! So good. I highly recommend this restaurant and plan on returning every time I’m in NYC!!

    Felt like we were rushed; wanted us in and out as soon as possible. After first drink never offered a second. Music way too loud, servers were kind but never came around. Totally different experience from the first time we were there pre-COVID.

    The customer service was really good. We told them it was our first time and he walked us through the steps of what to expect and best things to order. However, the food was bland and overpriced for the amount we got. Despite this, we still had an amazing time there.

    The table across from us decided to change their baby’s dirty diaper at the table and no one stoped them or asked them to leave. It was disgusting. I can only image the cleanliness standard then for the entire restaurant and we couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Waitress couldn’t tell us what all the sides were on the table. It was just not good all around. Would definitely recommend other place right around the area before this one. Sooo disappointed

    It was good food, good overall ambiance. The service was Okay and the prices were a bit high for Korean bbq. They cooked the food super fast where it didn’t feel like an “experience”, but rushed. The wings were really good and drinks start at $15

    Food was good, we preferred the beef platter over the pork platter but that may just be a personal preference. The egg souffle with truffle was amazing! Pay attention to the bill though, did not realized sometimes the tip have already been included.

    This was a nice experience. First time in New York with my mom and this was her first time trying Korean BBQ. We had a 10:30 reservation and we were later told they were closing at 11:20. We should at least have been given an hour to eat our food. The service was fair.

    Excellent flavours, with a range of delicious pickles, Kim chee, salted spinach and spicy pastes, constantly replenished to combine with meats cooked at our table with aplomb and skill. Service absolutely brilliant. Quality of meat superb, especially marinated beef option as recommended by staff.

    Lots of flowers! Felt like I was in a garden going up to the third floor for dinner. Food was good but they didn’t have enough banchan like other restaurants. Prime ribeye steak had good flavor and was melt in your mouth tender. The kalbi was equally as good. Overall a good meal but was pricey for what it was. We paid $400 including tax and tip for 2 apps, 4 orders of protein, and a beer/soju tower.

    Very expensive if you go the BBQ route. We ordered the prime beef. Not good value for the money ($124 for 2). You get 1 small steak, some marinated beef and slices of short rib...just not worth the money. They also forgot my beer.

    The food was very good; the ambiance was great for pictures with friends; the service was also good. The only thing that made our dinner uncomfortable was the AC not working during a heat wave in July in NYC and no one Informed my group that the air conditioning wasn’t working. Before you book your reservation ask about the AC. Overall it was a great experience.

    We were rushed all the way, text message 5 min before reservation time telling you to go to the hostess right away. Good we’re ok but very overprice, they cooked the meat for you and put it in a small metal bowl, Do not even bother to bring a plate. We ordered some additional meat after the initial order, they told us it needed to be cooked in the kitchen If not for the location for me to meet a friend , I would never go there. But will never go back. You get much better Korean BBQ in Bayside and Fort Lee

    I love Samson garden before. Always recommend to other people,. This is first time I went to Antoya after they change their name. The food is just ok, but definitely over valued. I do not think there is any service besides bring you the dishes on the table. The background music is most latest loop music, but really loud. I can barely hear my friend’s words. Overall very disappointing.

    Because they thought we didn't know Korean cuisine (only non-asian diners) they precooked our Bilgogi in the kitchen instead of using the BBQ. Very disappointing, why else would you go to korean BBQ?
