Too crowded and the food isn’t the best
Overall outstanding anniversary dinner at Avra on 48th! The ambiance and service were wonderful. The side doors were open to the patio seating, adding to the rustic country-side vibe. Great energy in the restaurant. The tuna and halibut entrees were amazing and our dessert, Galactoboureco, semolina custard in filo pastry crust was wonderful. Only slight blemish is that certain tables are intimately close to one another. Terrific venue for romantic evening out or to dine with family or group of friends. Highly recommended.
This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We ate there before seeing a show. We sat in the courtyard on the side of the restaurant at a lovely table for two. Food and service was great! Couldn’t have been lovelier. Will go there again!
Delicious pre-theatre dinner. Large portions! They bring a yummy appetizer to the table of olives, hummus & the best radishes I’ve ever tasted! Hard not to overindulge! Greek salad delicious. Portuguese sardines grilled to perfection.
Great food. Get the Avra chips and the Chilean sea bass.
nice atmosphere but the food was not as natural as I could be and therefore I feel acidic in my stomoch.
top restaurant in NYC highly recommended!! excellent service and the very quality of food simply unique!
Decent option for work lunch in midtown
Food was perfectly prepared . Service was Spot On, and sitting outside on a beautiful night made you feel you were somewhere in Greece
We'll go again! Everything was fine and the staff did their best to make us happy
Great food and service! A bit noisy but the seating was comfortable.
Amazing food- great wine- excellent service-
just a bit loud
Outstanding. The restaurant was very crowded on the rainy Monday night. We were quickly attended to a brought to a small table. There are a lot of tables placed in a small area to accommodate the demand. The red wine was very good. Service we attentive. The bread basket with complimentary hummus, radishes and olives was delicious. Our order was the exceptionally good Spanskopita and the scrumptious shrimp. All delicious will very prompt and attentive service.
From the moment we stepped in receptionist was on phone for about 15 minutes didn’t even bother to look up or acknowledge our arrival ... after 15 minutes put call on hold and told us to wait by bar where we waited for another20 minutes and bartender didn’t bother to ask if we wanted a drink ...we were then seated at almost 530 for a 5 pm reservation restaurant was not busy... ten more minutes waiter came over we ordered drinks took 20 minutes to get drinks waiter took our order pompous abrupt and rude and non accommodating ... I asked would they bring hummus and pita he said yes and when they did the brought a portion for 2 when we were 5 people ... they would not let my daughter order a Greek salad with grilled salmon on top ... which was confusing because they were offering grilled fish but if you wanted salmon you had to order it as an entree ... overalll taste of good was ok ... the whole staff and reception need to come down off their high horse because they are not all that they think they are
excellent...would recommend to all... been a long time since i enjoyed a meal so much
Love this place! No wait for our table on a Saturday ninjutsu! The grilled octopus and Bronzino were to die for. The service was excellent, very attentive.
I would return in a heartbeat!
Lively atmosphere but not overwhelmingly noisy, very professional/friendly service and the food was better than ever and I’ve been coming to Avra for 16 years
The food is good however the service is terrible. I had to ask to order, never got a wine list, they brought me the wrong thing, never got checked on I would have loved another glass of wine. Finally just asked someone else to bring me the check and left.
Every time i go to this restaurant, i order fish of the day and it’s really amazing. Food is outstanding and so is service. I would definitely recommend it. It is little pricey though but it worth it.
The place was cute, but the food was wildly expensive, the portions weren’t filling and the service was subpar.
Prix Fixe for a casual Business Lunch was a delicious bargain. I chose the greek salad with a lovely bronzino entree and a touch of dessert. Beautifully prepared and well worth the $29 price tag.
The food and the service are amazing!
Fantastic as always!!!
The server staff never seems to care about service or friendliness. Had the Halibut, it was so over cooked it tasted like dried chicken.
AVRA on 48th Street is superb! Food is always outstanding.
Very good food, simple but tasty. The grilled octopus is awesome! And good wines too
It has been 4 or 5 years since I visited Avra. We were not disappointed. The meal and service were superb.
Always a great experience!
We were going to another place to celebrate my birthday, but changed the reservation to Avra last minute and did not regret. The ambience and service are excellent. Giant king prawns are to die for.
Excellent dinner. Arctic char was wonderful. Arturo & Fernando did a good job
Great for special personal occasions but unless you have a business expense account. It’s expensive. Tables are cramped for couples.
I love Avra. The food seems to be better at the 60th St. location but the ambience at 48th St. is more intimate. I don't say this much but the place is truly great for any occasion.
Great food and not too expensive
Food as usual and son. Freshest fish in the city. Service good I don’t love the tables being crammed right next to each other and it is louder than I like but the food warrants coming back
Food, service, atmosphere all were excellent.
Delicious high quality meal. The calamari, Greek salad and fish we’re all absolutely delish! Service was also friendly and kind. One of our favorites in the neighborhood. Lucky to live and work nearby.
Food was very good. The Bronzino could have been a little more seasoned as I’ve had amazing fish elsewhere
Greek salad was very good but smaller portion of Feta . Octopus were delicious. Overall good meal and would go back
Very good but pricey.
The food was excellent. Especially the grilled octopus. The ambiance was beautiful. It is a nice cozy restaurant. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.
