    I have been going to Wonjo for close to 20 years which is right next to your place. We decided to try your place instead We were really disappointed in the quality of the meat and the flavor. After spending $250 at your place, and not being satisfied, we immediately went to Wonjo next-door and had a meal again because, we did not enjoy the food at your place at all.

    We had a wonderful experience at Antoya. The space is huge and beautifully decorated. Perfect for a date, night out with friends, or celebrating with family. The amount of food for the price is great. You get so many delicious sides apart from the meats you order. The service is super attentive and everyone has a welcoming vibe. EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!

    The cooked and prepared foods were subpar, although the cuts of meat from the platters were excellent. There were flies that kept swarming the table, and at one point there were 5+ gnats that kept flying on the food and around the guests at our one table. Absolutely disgusting and annoying. Being that this was a business meal, it was extremely embarrassing that this was the level this restaurant has become. The female server barely spoke, however we realized she did speak English, but her initial few interactions were incredibly rough, no words communicated, and was just awkward and rude. The banquette we sat in were incredibly flimsy and esp since the guests behind apparently didn’t know how to just lean back instead of slamming back, we kept getting pushed and disturbed while we were trying to enjoy our meal. Never again

    The staff was friendly, however not much advice given when asked for recommendations and I was a first timer with Korean BBQ. The food was tasty but would have ordered differently next time based on what others around me had in front of them. Lovely décor inside.

    Worn out booths/seating constantly moving from guests next table. Food was ok way to large quantities for an entree each person but the didn’t tell us that. Fast, cold but effective t service but interior desperately needs updating. Definitely way over rated

    The meat quality was way below the expectation, considering what they charge. One server was covering the area. They asked and we told the meat temperature to be medium rare, ended up having burnt/over cooked meat.

    We arrived on the minute for our reservation. First, we were told to wait outside till our table is free, where we were supposed to be picked up later. After half an hour we decided to ask for ourself, apparently the table was already free and we have been forgotten. At our table we ordered the assorted beef platter for two, as well as one cocktail each. The meat and sides were delicious and perfectly cooked by the cook at our table. Unfortunately, we never got out ordered cocktails. Even after asking the staff two times about the missing cocktails we didn’t get them till the end of our dinner. Still, the cocktails were still listed on the invoice! At least they were removed after a short complaint. Overall the service was very bad, which is super unfortunate in regard of the superb food and ambience!

    First time coming to see what the hype was about but was disappointed. Other than the sauce, the food was bland and not a good value for the amount of food given. Too overprice and can get better elsewhere. Service was mediocre.

    1. they want you out in 10 min.. never have been so rushed at a restaurant before. dishes were not coursed out (everything brought out at once), manic grilling when our table was obviously overwhelmed with how much other food we got at one time. we had to tell them to stop 2. servers don't even know their own menu FWIW, no Koreans on staff and no Korean customers on 32nd Street... kind of says a lot So many better options for K BBQ

    Prenotazione alle 22:00 chiamiamo per dire che c’era traffico con la pioggia e saremmo arrivati più tardi. Entriamo alle 22:30 e ci dicono che la cucina era ormai chiusa. Dopo averli pregati c hanno fatto sedere con l’accordo di mangiare solo il bbq e nulla di cucinato.Cibo nella norma ma il cameriere c ha messo tutta la carne sulla griglia per farci sbrigare e andare via.170 dollari in 45 minuti di cena.

    Very poor dining experience. Other than our order being taken, no floor staff really interacted with us (other than when the food runner dropped the food off and did bring us some requested spoons.) I even waved and made sustained eye contact with the floor manager, he just looked down and slinked away. The expectation at resto like this is an attendent grills the meat ordered; no one even stopped in. Other than the poor service, it was galling we were only given two pieces of leaf lettuce - for $200 worth of food. The bbq meat was great, the banchan was okay.

    Service was horrendous -maybe 10 words in total from the server. Rushed us the entire time (meal took one hour total) as they definitely want to quickly turn tables. Kimchi was old and sour. Side dishes were tiny in size. Beef was overall fairly decent and super fatty. We will not return and am shocked they have a Michelin bib.

    Spent good amount of $$$ for a meal of 3 person but the order wasn't serve with a bowl rice that comes from the package we ordered. The noise was terrible and you smell bbq when you get out the restaurant. Needs improvement with the ventilation, spaces are to cramped.
