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.

Glad to be dining outside there. Atmosphere and the weather were great. Took a while to get served from the wine list, but other than that, it was great.

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

Large portions and very fresh seafood. Assortment of 3 dips is enough for 3 people. Spanikopita was lacking flaky filo dough, but the spinach was excellent. at $19.95, i didnt think it was worth it. Jumbo shrimp over moussaka was excellent and shrimp so large it was difficult to finish. But for the hostess, who made me wait and then didn't realize that I was waiting, the service was excellent. Outdoor ambiance was great! A bit disappointed that there was no recognition of our special occasion though it was noted on the reservation and mentioned to the waiter.
