Cute spot in Soho! 12/29/2009

this place is great for a shopping break in soho! the turkish food is delicious, the wine selection is great, and the staff are so friendly & attentive (a welcome change from the usual soho scene)! we had a great dinner and the prices were affordable - would definitely recommend coming back. oh, and in the summer, the front tables are great for people-watching! Pros: delicious food, beautiful decor & ambiance more

the best combination of great food, good wine and excellent 11/25/2009

The unique food and decor of antique garage is an excellent choice for me and friends during the day or at night. They serve authentic Mediterranean cuisine with great selections of wine from South America and Europa. Also they have a live jazz band during the week and on Sunday brunch. One of the most important thing is that i like about the restaurant is the friendliest staff and good choice of music..this restaurant is a MUST if you are around mercer & grand. Pros: best appetizer with fresh warm bread... more

This place is great. 3/23/2009

This has quickly become one of my new favorite go-to places for lunch. The decor is great. The cucumber lemon flavored water is nice during the summer. The menu is excellent for both lunch and dinner. Everything I've tried so far (and it's been a lot) has been excellent. My favorites so far are the meatballs, the chicken kebab, the perfectly seared tuna, the hummus, and the pasta with feta cheese. It's great to have such a large variety of foods that I like and I want to try more!\r \r Pros: The ambiance and food. Cons: None. more

Very good restaurant in Soho 12/3/2008

They are serving very good wines. They have wines from different regions and a few are offered by the glass. I tried the malbec and was satisfied with it. Service is also very good. Food was tasteful but a little bit pricey. I tried the meatballs. more

Everything is ok but Pricey 10/20/2008

3.5 starts. Great atmosphere, convenient location, and delicious food. I came here for lunch with potential clients. Everything tasted fantastic and the warm ambiance definitely helped smooth over awkward moments. Minus .5 star for the price. It is good food, but I don't think it's worth the price. Well, I guess anything decent in a pretty setting will cost an arm and a leg in the fidi. Pros: food,ambiance Cons: pricey more

A good thing can be a bad thing at times 6/10/2008

It is nice when they are able to open the ""garage door"" for an open air feel. However, on a brutally hot day like yesterday when I was hoping to have good food in the comfort of an airconditioned space, it seemed a bit ridiculous to have the door open, letting all the cold air escape. And the poor waiters with their long sleeves and ties must have been miserable in that heat. Next time it is this hot, I hope they think of comfort for customers and wait staff rather than an opening to the outside heat. more

Boo! 4/29/2008

I was told so many things about this place but i could not satisfy myself.Food left me overtaste and the service makes you feel like you are in a diner. more

Cool spot 4/9/2008

I like this place. It's so unique and I'm longing for the warm weather when they can open the ""garage door"" again. The menu isn't huge but everything on it is damn good. Good waiter, too. Pros: Cool space, good food, attentive service Cons: EXPENSIVE more

The Best in Soho 2/20/2008

Ladies and gentelman this place is sofisticated then any other place in Soho. Decor, Presentation, and their Cuisine is great. This is my favorite place all time more

FabuLous 9/2/2007

I had my birthday dinner there this past Friday. The food was good, the ambience was great, and the service was spectacular. Great wine selection too. A definite must. Pros: Wine, ambeince, service Cons: too much fun ;-) more

fantastic find! 7/7/2007

A friend took me for dinner here and the selection of wine and foods were wonderful! The check arrived in a beautifully crafted wooden box with leather binding. Although they would not sell it to me, I will certainly return! more

Perfect for Romantic Night Out 5/22/2007

I took my boyfriend for our anniversary and we had a perfect night out. The place is beautiful, and the ambience is fabulous due to the nice crowd, great decoration, excellent music. We had a cocktail at the bar accompanied by some tasty meze?s to begin, then a delicious main course of Turkish Meatballs and Shrimp Casserole . The food and service were really outstanding, and the staff super friendly. I absolutely recommend it as a great place for all occasions actually, not just a romantic night out, they have a fab long table for groups too. Wine selection was very good also. We are definitely going back soon!\r \r more

Just drink the wine and enjoy the music 4/17/2007

I had been dying to go to this place, because it is so cute and has live music. I finally went with a friend recently, and we were both really disappointed in the food. We had the mixed mezze platter, and the ""eggplant salad"" (babaganoush) tasted like BBQ potato chips. We also had the cheese plate, and the cured meats plate. The cheese were yummy, but the meats were really not great. The wine was lovely, though, as was the service, the decor and the music, so I'd just go for a drink and to hang out next time. Pros: Decor, service, music, wine Cons: Food more

Loved it! Absolutely amazing. 1/30/2007

I had heard so many good things about this place and it absolutely lived up to it's reputation. I was there with a group of friends on a Friday night and had a GREAT time. The atmosphere and the music was fantastic. Friendly servers and the amazing mediterranean dishes made this place an instant favorite in our short list of ""go to"" spots... Comfortable atmosphere, yet chic and great food! Must try spicy shrimp, vegetarian pizette and almost all the other small plates on the menu..delicious!!! Pros: ambience, food, great for parties more

Bad service 1/25/2007

This is an expensive restaurant with a lot of bad service. I went and the owner take me to the table ( he told me he was the owner). I asked for a drink and the waiter brough me a glass full of ice with soda and my expectation of a drink was wrong because in a few minutes I just had water with soda. Then I asked for octupus, that's is good but very small, I'm talking about five little pieces for 14 dollars... \r But the worse part was the entree because they brough to me a big big plate for a small table with the band besides us!!! I asked for a glass of wine and they brough a dirty glass with something...\r The owner is very rude with the staff he screamed to them in front of the customers and for us is unrespectfull because they work for him and for people who go to eat. He doesn't have manners. \r The food and the decoration were good. that's the best part. Pros: good decoration Cons: bad attitudes!!! more

Best atmosphere, great food, great cocktails, friendly stuff... 12/3/2006

It's hard to find these kind of places anymore. Especially in Soho. This is a beautiful restaurant with beautiful antique decoration. everything (from plates to furniture) is unique. They have pretty good mediterrenean food. Especially the fish specials, borek and the meatballs... Also live jazz bands, extensive wine list and creative cocktails (Try ""Last Call"" and ""Mojito Royal"") give this place also a cool lounge feeling. Attentive staff knows the food and makes the experience only better. Good Job. \r \r I especially recommend A.G. for sunday brunch, it would look good on the best brunch lists of the NY magazines..\r Pros: Food, ambience, service, cocktails, music, location Cons: No high chairs. more

absolutely horrible experience 11/30/2006

this is NOT a fine dining restaurant but more of a chaotic, dirty, unedible dish you should rather not enter! \r I am extremely appalled and I will never step foot in the place again!\r EXPENSIVE dishes, RUDE bar staff, uneducated servers, and a lack of respect circles this old garage with a bad vibe. I would shut them down and am working on it! Take this review serious. Who is in charge of the havoc? I wish to make a formal complaint. Pros: the lighting Cons: everything else more

Completely, unexpectedly wonderful! 11/8/2006

When my husband mentioned the name, I hesitated, as it just sounded odd. However, as usual, he was right and it turned out to be one of our best dining experiences in a long time. The service is so gracious, the ambience is gorgeous and the food is delicious. The turkish meatballs were so lean, tender and perfectly seasoned, and the appetizer platter had not a single miss. I am so happy we went, and I know we will return soon. Pros: Ambience, service, food more

Great place! 9/5/2006

This place sure is romantic. I always order the same dishes when I'm here. I like their bread sticks with hummus and flat breads. For entree I always get the turkish meatballs. It's amazing! Service is pretty decent. I don't recall it ever being top notch. But nonetheless, I'm definitely a regular. Pros: food Cons: desserts, coffees more

  • Tucked away on a rare, quiet stretch of Soho, this bi-level, rustic restaurant is distinct from its surroundings. Given the name, it's no surprise to find the entrance next to a large garage door....
