    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?

    Overall food was really good, especially the soup they bring out to the table! Only thing is we would have preferred to cook the meat ourselves, the staff kept coming to us every like 3-4 mins and it was just a lot of in our personal space, we even voiced to the waitress we are more than happy to cook the meat ourselves but then different people kept coming over to flip/cook meat. Other than that great tasting food.

    We were visiting NYC for our anniversary, to see Billy Joel at the Garden, and and to take in a show: a quintessential NYC get-away. We chose Antoya because of their recent Michelin rating and rave reviews. The food was good, but I am not sure that the Michelin rating is deserved. The dining room is far too noisy for an intimate conversation. The food presentation is blah - no pizzazz at all. The beef selection was okay but had no wow factor. The traditional Korean sides were limited in choice and equally mundane. In all honesty, there are other good Korean BBQs in Manhattan that may not have Antoya’s formal accolades, but their dining experience rivals Antoya at a fraction of the cost. Had high hopes about this restaurant but was underwhelmed.

    Reception was polite, and we waited a few minutes from our reserved dinner time, but were seated in a cozy corner table as requested. We ordered the Fried Pork Dumplings and Chapchae as starters which were both well seasoned and delicious. For the Korean BBQ we ordered the Marinated Kalbi and the Prime Rib Eye Steak. Food service was very prompt and efficient. The sides that accompany the bbq dinner were a little different but good. Overall we enjoyed our dinner here and would return to dine here.

    Very disappointed on the experience as i specified when i did the reservation that was a special event and the sat us upstairs in the noisiest part wheee we could not ever hear us talk. I asked to be moved but the manager said that those noisy tables were leaving caise he brought them a check. Well they left at the same time as us. Also way overpriced!

    Antoya was awesome! First Korean BBQ experience, the server cooked the meet for us , it was really nice. All of the little side dishes you get are awesome. I recommend skipping the Pork and just getting Beef ! The beef was so good. The ambiance in there is a little meh, The booths look awesome but if you get a regular table its kind of meh.
