You could be sure to expect the best when you come to AnTalia, As the owners are a part of the daily operations. Service is being taken care of a manager who owns the restaurant, food is being deliciously prepared by a cook who also owns the restaurant. How can you go wrong?
AnTalia Restaurant serves authentic Turkish dishes in the midtown area. The pre-theater crowd loves there Prix-Fixe menu that serves 3 course meals for only 24.95. This lovely restaurant serves its guests in two floors. Second floor is a great way to have a private party or dine quietly.
My wife and I loved AnTalia—great food, great service, nice ambiance, sure to go back
My friend and I had a full appetizer spread with bread but the dishes that stood out to me were the Baba Ganoush and Pink Sultan. I am not a huge fan of beets but it was prepared different from what I am used to, it was very creamy. The Baba Ganoush had such great flavor and was a great compliment to the bread. The Turkish bread was crunchy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside. It was very addicting, I couldn't get enough of it. For drinks we had Red Sangria which was full of different fruits, I enjoyed it.
For our entree we opted for the Salmon in Vine Leaves and Chicken Shish Kebab. The salmon and chicken were flavorful and very juicy.
Overall I had a good experience at this restaurant. The presentation of every dish shows that they pay attention to detail. The staff was attentive and made me feel welcomed. Hopefully next time I’ll try their Gyros and rice pudding!
The best Turkish restaurant in NYC - super delicious lamb kebabs ever, great service and the best value for money! I will dine at this amazing restaurant every week if at all possible!
Great food and service. I was dining alone, but I never felt lonely. I will definitely go
Hey Gabriela, You are never alone when we are here :), So happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. Hope to serve you again
The hummus was great. The red lentils in wrappers was great. In fact we ordered more of each for our table. Will definitely go back
Hey Ken, Glad to hear you enjoyed your appetizers, hoping to have you try our more of what we can offer.
AnTalia is a favorite of my friends and I. We love the food, they have a nice wine list, the room is pleasantly comfortable, and the service is always excellent.
Good quick meal before the theater. Have eaten here before and the food is always fresh and tasty.
Prix fix dinner is an excellent value. Food was prepared well and very tasty
Loved the new decor! The ambiance was really inviting, fresh and bright. Cant say enough about the food, The flavours were just there, enough herbs, enough salt, and so fresh. The wine menu looks very large as well, great choices from the Mediterranean. We tried the Ancyra Turkish red wine and it accommodated our meals very well.
Hi Emilliano, So happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to have you back again in the near future. Thank you for all the compliments
Food was OK not great. It’s pretty expensive relative to the flavor and uniqueness of the dishes. I would have been happy at about 50-60% of what I paid, which was a buck and five for two entrees (one veg), a three-item veg appetizer assortment, a beer and two bevs. Atmosphere is nice and service good. We were there around 6 on a Saturday.
Hello David, We appreciate your feedback, Thank you very much for considering our restaurant to visit. We also suggest trying our "Pre-Fix Dinner" which is 3 course meal for 31.95. (Appetizer, Entree, Dessert, Coffee or Tea). Hope to see you with us again.
This is one such a lovely restaurant. Being a Turkish food fan I would highly recommend this spot, the spices and the herbs used were very authentic. The Turkish gyro was nothing different than the one I had in Istanbul/Turkey. They compliment you this Turkish bread with home made olive paste and start serving you slowly from appetizers and entrees. At no point there was a rush, staff is well aware of hospitality. It was great having a conversation with them. The ambiance is really bright and beautifully modern. Highly recommend this to friends.
Hello Ellen, We cant thank you enough for the compliments. Thank you for taking the time to write your feelings. Hope to serve you again.
This was my third visit to AnTalia. The first two times, I enjoyed the food, which was well-prepared and delicious. This third time, I noticed that the restaurant space got a nice makeover, but the Iskender kebab I ordered was the worst I have ever tasted. It was not presented well on the plate and it was a complete disappointment. The lamb was sliced scraps that were overcooked and tough, the yogurt was cold and was not integrated into the dish, and there was one wedge of tomato. It looked like the food was thrown together and that the cook did not actually know what Iskender kebab is supposed to be. Terrible. The waitress was very nice, but I will not be visiting this place again. Very sad.
Hello Peggy, Thank you for the precious visit and the honest review. We will do our best to work on this particular dish to see what may have went wrong as its one of the dishes that gets a lot of compliments. Hope to serve you again in the near future.
The food and service are wonderful. Fun place for a dinner before a show. We were there around 5:30 on a Friday. The 3 course dinner at $31 is well worth it.
Great find! Went to this restaurant for lunch and it was wonderful. The food was freshly made and very tasty, good service and the price tag was extremely reasonable. This is a great lunch spot if you are in midtown.
Very nice appetizers and wine! Pleasant staff. Nice place!
As always, an excellent meal at Antalia. There are few classic spots left in midtown and Antalia never disappoints. It is also very reasonable.
Most disappointed with service especially during a work day lunch...staff was busy talking among themselves .... Food was consistent excellent hummas
Celebrating daughter’s graduation
Good food, plain interior, good location and good value. It was convenient to where I was going. But I would not go out of my way to go there again.
What a rare find in Midtown`s madness. Everything was presented in such class, no difference than dining in a fancy restaurant. The ambiance was also cozy. Love the lights and the seating.
Great restaurant that serves dishes you can't get anywhere else in midtown. Service was exceptional.
I cant wait to go back here. The food here is like what my family in Eastern Europe cooked like. The flavors were outstanding, service great and the front of house is very accommodating. You will not be disappointed by going here.
Great sit down lunch option in the diamond district. Red lentil soup was delicious and don’t get me started on their bread! Yum
Great place to have good conversation and quality food. I loved decor of the restaurant. Manager had said they have re-decorated the place and the energy is very fresh. Very large selection of vegetarian dishes. Two thumbs up!
It's rare to find a restaurant near the theater district where you can have a good, quiet meal, at a very reasonable price. We eat a lot of middle eastern food, and this is excellent. Highly recommended.
Good food served by amazing people. This was no different that fine dining. Loved the plates and the ambiance.
I think I could marry the chef :-) From the service to the ambiance I enjoyed everything with my company. I love the fact that the servers gave us complimentary dessert and the chef sent out some of his new items on the house for us to try. Really 5 stars.
AnTalia is a charming place to dine close the Times Square/theater district. It's also an easy stroll from Grand Central terminal. Background music is at a low enough level to have a conversation AND it has very good food at reasonable prices. The cuisine is Mediterranean and vegetarian friendly. I enjoyed hummus and falaffel. Carnivores should like the beef steak and lamb dishes. There are seafood choices as well. Two thumbs up!
This is not your usual Turkish spot. The food and the spices were right on, I have traveled to Turkey so many times and this was the closest place to the taste. I also loved the bright and spacious ambiance. All around 5 stars.
This restaurant is a great find in an area without many good choices.
I really enjoyed my dining in here, I was there around 1pm and the place was packed. Me and my friend enjoyed sipping on Turkish wine and beer while enjoying the mixed appetizer plate. The staff was also very helpful. Will be back once in the city again.
Honest 5 stars!
Huge fan of this type of food and this place really proves it. I was there for a business meeting, my business partner really enjoyed the environment and the food. Truly fresh, Servers said that the salads is always made to order and preparation is always daily basis for the rest of the dishes. We tried shepherd salad, Iskender Kebab, Mediterranean Sea bass and their baklava along with that amazing Turkish coffee they serve in copper cups.
It’s the worst new york restaurant i’ve ever been to. Food quality was poor and the service was bad.
We ordered three appetizers and the lamp chop. The lamp chop was a bit dry although it comes in 4 pieces. The appetizers are just ok. The ambience is OK , quiet for a Friday evening. Easy to grab a table here.
Service was good, food was amazing the wait for a table was less than five minutes as well a the atmosphere is wonderful for lunch. The bread for the table was yummy and the entree was filling. My guests and I were pleased AnTalia is definitely a hidden jewel In midtown.
One of our favorite local lunch spots! We always enjoy the food, the service is great and the atmosphere is conducive to business meetings.
Excellent foot and service. Love AnTalia and will be coming back!
Good service, great food
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The hummus and chicken shish kebabs were outstanding. Your service was spot on. Your portions were more than adequate. We definitely will return. Thanks!
Small refreshingly quiet place, with (based on our food) was very good. Service was very friendly. We'll eat there again when we're in the area.
