I have been dinning at Avra Estiatorio since it first opened 20 years ago. Having lived bi coastal for 10 years I was flattered to be invited to the “friends and family” open at Avra in Beverly Hills as well as Avra on 60th street here in Manhattan. I live about 4 blocks from Avra Estiatorio so pre COVID I dined there multi times a month for both lunch and dinner and the occasional cocktail at the bar. My visit for dinner this past Tuesday, February 16, 2021 was exceptional! As exceptional and even more so than in pre Covid times. We dined in the apparently to be permanent and newly constructed outdoor area. The structure was incredibly comfortable with more than adequate heaters, music and flora gracing the room. The service was impeccable as always. All had masks in place and much of the staff and management stoped by to say hello and ask if we needed anything beyond the already great service. I believe over the years I have had everything on there pre COVID menu and there current menu. Tuesday I had the Greek Salad for a starter and was quite surprised at the great flavor of the tomato’s for February. For my main course I had my favorite Youvitsi which is seafood over Orzo. I must say it tasted even better (if that’s possible) than when dinning inside almost a year ago. My two dinner companions raved about everything as well. We had cocktails and wine and all were perfect! All of the servings were more than ample portions. My only regret is that they have not restored Oysters on the half shell yet. I am sure they will as soon as practicable. Go, enjoy and feel 100% safe. Of all the outdoor dinning in NYC this is by far the best. Nothing else can compare. Laurance Gay

Avra 48's outside dinning area is quite nice and well heated. As usual, the food and service were great. Our party of five selected an array of starters followed by fish entrees. For outdoor dining in the era of COVID, I like Avra 48 over its sister restaurant on East 60th Street.

The best estratoria in NYC. Super recommended. Their grilled octopus has to be one of the best ones in the US.

We like this Avra location the best as its the most authentic. a Greek village type feel appeals to us more than the Milos/modern look at 60th st. Service was a little slow but I think the waiter had too many tables and it effected the usual over the top service we have had in the past. This is clearly not the kind of place you go to with a budget and for an anniversary dinner it was well worth the high cost. I have been to many expensive restaurants where the freshness and tastiness of the food just doesn't compare.

Was there before and the food was very good.
This time it was really bad and nothing to do with the real Greek food and prices are very high for the quality and taste. Won’t dine there again.

Avra has long been one of my favorites, but now they are making wonderful use of their patio, sidewalk street front and huge interior to provide their consistently wonderful fresh seafood (and meat dishes as well) in a safe, socially distant and warm (literally) manner. Tables are generously spaced ...much further than 6 feet apart. They now have added a variety of heat lamps for people (like me) who are still hesitant to eat inside. Had a lovely meal this evening in 42° weather and was still comfortably warm and incredibly well fed.

Would highly recommend everything we got: fried calamari was perfect - light, not oily and very tender; zucchini chips we also perfectly fried, light and not greasy. My son enjoyed his sword fish and I enjoyed my seafood medley. We sat under the tent near the road which was a little windy, and not as ambient as the beautiful courtyard just outside the restaurant and nestled between buildings where they also had lots of heaters. Overall a huge win. We loved it
