Food is always outstanding with generous portions. Waiter did not know was a kir royale was. We asked for a drink after sitting for 10 minutes. Asked to order appetizers. Never asked how our meals were. Took a very long time to get check. I understand Covid makes everything harder. Will always love Avra but the staff tonight was not a good reflection of your restaurant.

Sitting outside in the most desirable part of the restaurant, there was an infestation of tiny round bugs. Flying all over our appetizer that we covered our dishes with napkins. The restaurant staff walked around all the outside tables spraying a “toxic free” liquid on the ground which didn’t help at all so we moved inside. The service was poor after the move and the evening was disappointing.

This was a fabulous evening, a get together of two families who had not seen each other in years. Avra was the perfect location. Our server, Konstantinos was excellent, attentive and with great suggestions. I had been anticipating the lamb chops and roasted potatoes for weeks and they did not disappoint. The Haloumi was perfect. The roasted red pepper spread was delicious and required many pita pieces. All in all a perfect evening.

Excellent food, but slow service this time (lunch on a Sunday).
During the week was a great, quick service.
Food is really good, a little bit expensive
I will still probably go again

We selected the prix fix menu and were pleased with the selection and the quality of all the dishes. Everything was tasty and fresh. Marcos, our server was very attentive and helpful, so were the others servers. Also to note the kindness of the hostesses. We will be back.

Excellent as always! The only restaurant in NYC that I go to regularly. There are so many good restaurants that I always try different places with each visit. Avra is the only restaurant I try to visit on each visit.

La experiencia culinaria en Avra siempre es exquisita por eso es mi Restaurant imperdible cuando visito la ciudad de New York. Aunque en mi última visita la camarero que nos atendió fue muy irrespetuoso y nos dio un trato discriminatorio, así nos sentimos. Le llamo la atención a mi esposa quien le pidió un poco de queso Parmesano y su respuesta fue que ese era un Restaurant Griego, no estaba al pendiente nuestro, nos llevaba las bebidas incompletas y al final nos dijo que prefería que nos atendiera otro camarero, una persona así le hace daño a un Restaurante maravilloso como lo es Avra de la 48th

Go here all the time and always get a crappy table. Even ask manager for a different table and they say none available. The tables sit empty. Wait service yesterday also not great, missing order then wrong order and had to beg for water refills

We very specifically asked for outdoor seating- real outdoor seating, which I know they have. We were not accommodated, nor did they ask for vax proof, which they should have. With covid still very prevalent, you would think they would be cautious. We were very disappointed.

Waiter had attitude, was inattentive. He tried to make up for it in the end, which we appreciate it, but one wonders if that’s because it’s closer to a decision time on a tip? The food has become astronomically expensive there. And I’m sad to say that the shrimp and halibut were very dry. And the broccoli Rob had no taste whatsoever and was chewy. Wouldn’t of minded if it had not been so expensive
