Great place for drinks, hostess a bit out-of-it

Walked in last Friday at ~7pm w/ a friend. The place was nearly empty save for 4 couples, yet the blond hostess announced she could seat us only if we'd be done in an hour! Turning this down, she seated us at the huge center table - but we had to be done in 1 1/2 hrs! I thought this was ridiculous, as there were scathes of empty tables! We asked if we could sit upstairs, & our hostess went to ask another girl, who promptly seated us at a small table on the ground floor w/o any hassle! Aside from this, service was quite good, our waiter was friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of time to order. He recommended a special appetizer of hot b'sterma (delicious) & we shared the spicy shrimp app. (yummy) & the organic grilled chicken entree (mediocre). Prices were higher then on the menu listed on this site - entree was $24 (1 of the cheapest) and apps were about $18 each! My passion fruit mojito, however, was simply divine!! I would recommend this place for drinks and an app. - but skip the lackluster entrees and go elsewhere if ur really hungry.

A group of friends and I hit NY last weekend to celebrate my birthday....I wanted to find something a little different but still very NY...Well Antique Garage fitted the bill....The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive and even though the secret request my sister had put in for a birthday cake didn't come off, the staff rallied round with a replacement.... The food was plentiful and well priced and the atmosphere very chilled....Checkout the toilet - very homely....!!!! Would definately recommend this to fellow Londoners looking for something chic...

This was probably one of the best restaurants i've been to, ever. From the outside it's not very noticable-or anything special, but the inside is great. The service was quite good and the food: excellent. The waiter seemed a little drunk to me... maybe i was wrong. Anyway, i would definately recommend it.

Great Vibe Mediocre Food

You can't question its scenster credentials with its offbeat quirky decor, competent bartenders, and the fantastic live jazz band but the food which tries to span Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine encompasses nothing. Their great claim to Turkish fame is their mezze and Turkish meatballs which wasn't any better than the ones you get at your local falafel stand. Great vibe, good looking crowd, and great live music that compliments your conversation not drown it out. There's a lot to compliment this place about, just not its food.

Nice eccentric atmosphere, a hidden gem in one of the less visited parts of SoHo. Nice food and great music. They cater to your requests if you need to go there on a special occasion. Communal table is a good choice if you are a large group. Kudos to the owner...
