Avra Estiatorio on 48th is a restaurant that transports you to the Greece of your imagination. The sky is vivid blue and the air is drenched with sunlight and the aroma of freshly caught fish grilling over an open fire.

Everything was delicious. Starting with the hummus and bread. I had the grill octopus and my husband got the tuna tartare as appetizer. FYI the portions are very generous for appetizers. For main we both had the bass which was very light and seasoned subtle. For desert the olive oil and fog cake. We will go back for sure❤️

The food is always fantastic here but the service team is very fake and the management and hostesses are not very friendly. They are always packed and seem to rest on their laurels.

I made a reservation a week in advance and confirmed it the morning of. But when we got there it took 25 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated, the food and service was great. The staff were apologetic about the wait, but I would not go back to this restaurant on a work day when I have other things to do because they don't know how to manage the reservation system.

A delightful evening in a relaxing charming setting with superb food. Can’t remember when we’ve had more tender and tasty fish. We did the pre-theater meal for $45. and every dish was perfect. There also was a large selection from which to choose.

Overall, this restaurant is a find!

Very tasty food, but some of the appetisers were pricey for what they were, and the combinations of ingredients might raise eyebrows -- moussaka and jumbo prawns? Lovely fish, though.

The high expectations that I had for this restaurant were relatively met. My husband is of Greek descent and enjoys showing off his familiarity with Greek cuisine. Avra Estiatorio is Greek through and through from the food to the wait staff. . . We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with the sampling of dips, the octopus appetizer (shared) and a special of shared Bronzino with a side of brocolli rabe. The meal was excellent, yet in spite of what we believe to be "light" selections, it was very filling, almost heavy. My only complaint is the space, or lake thereof. The restaurant is warm and inviting but also crowded. The tables are set nearly on top of one another. The set up lends to vibrancy not to privacy.

Food was very good but restaurant "misplaced" my reservation due to some confusion with a guest arriving early. Would highly recommend and given an overall 5-star if it wasn't for this issue. Thank you.

Avra has been one of our favorite restaurants, however, our last visit was disappointing. The restaurant was incredibly busy...too many tables squished together and service was not terribly attentive . It will be a while before I go back. Plus, prices have gone up and are way too expensive now!
