Everything was perfect. It's a beautiful setting and despite it's size, the restaurant seems to orchestrate/coordinate everything flawlessly. Our server Aizhan was both charming, helpful and very knowledgeable. Special kudos to her for making the experience so enjoyable.

This was our first time to Avra, a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant in Beverly Hills. There were some good things and some not so good things. It has a lovely patio and open-air feel. The restaurant has lovely decor and is quite large- with nice round tables good for large parties. There are also nice smaller tables out on the patio, which has heaters if needed. Our waiter was actually Greek, and he was attentive. The food was tasty and fresh. We selected the fresh Dover Sole and the Loup de Mer, which we were told is flown in fresh, The soukanaki Greek cheese appetizer and the arugula salad were both very yummy, What you should know is the prices are very high, even by fine dining standards. The fish comes by the pound and they actively try to sell you a pound per person. You can order less, however. My husband and I shared the sole, which ended up being the perfect amount of food. Whereas our son got the fish alone and his entree was over $60. As with steakhouses, the sides are all a la carte, which at $15 a plate, add up fast. My recommendation is to push back on the amount that you order, try to share, and know exactly what you are getting! On the plus side, there are two hours of free parking across the street beneath the Montage Hotel.

Came for dinner with family for the first time.
The bartenders were attentive with quick service.
We were seated; great table in the center of the dining room.
Our service was amazing; servers were knowledgeable of the menu with great suggestions.
My dad frequents the restaurant and saw his favorite server, Basil, who came to the table and spent some time with us.
Our server was new to the team (this was surprising bc he was so good-felt like he’d been there forever) and he was great! He was relatable, attentive, and provided memorable experience for us.

Overall, definitely a place to frequent more often.

The server "pushed" the fresh turbot (their most expensive fish, perhaps) quite insistently, we acquiesced -- and regretted it, as there was zero flavor.

The Avra chips were nice, but very greasy from the fryer.

The greek salad and spinach were good -- but the roasted potatoes were different than expected, as they were more like scalloped potatoes.

This was our 4th time dining at Avra, and definitely the least enjoyable of our visits. Previously it was one of our favorites, but for us it's lost a fair bit of its allure.

Love Avra! The food is amazing and the ambiance lively. I’ve been to Greece a lot and this is the best Greek food I’ve had outside of the country - and I’ve tried a lot! Love that they have American/healthy twists on some dishes too. Will keep coming back 🇬🇷🙏🏼💕

Avra is not a restaurant for food critics that define great restaurant as somewhere that they fill up your plate with lots of low quality ingredients, at low prices, or for those that believe the more hot sauce is poured on your plate the better it tastes!!

Avra is the ideal restaurant for those that appreciate fish is at its best when it is just caught from the sea, is prepared simply by grilling, or sautéing, with minimum amount of additives. It is for those that appreciate authenticity in food preparation, for those that want to have many good choices of seafoods, served professionally, in a beautiful room. It is the ultimate destination for those discriminating people that value the high level of attention to details that Operation Manager Kalia Christoforou and her well trained staff provide night after night, in a full room of people.

Avra is my first choice among the restaurants in Beverly Hills!

This was my third visit to Avra Beverly Hills and I have been to both Avra locations in NYC. The fresh seafood is excellent and the ambience light and airy. I have entertained family and clients at both locations and they always rave about the food and experience. I am a return customer.

Avra is a Los Angeles/Beverly Hills favorite. The fish is flown in daily. The food is fresh and well prepared. The selections are many. Try the Greek wines...delicious (with no unhealthy sulphates). The decor is sophisticated and beautiful. Top notch. TOP NOTCH.
