Typical NYC restaurant where the tables are too close together and you feel like you're sitting with the people next to you. Food was definitely above average, but the service was invisible most of the night. They missed the opportunity to sell more drinks and desert....
The baked cheese in philo dough appetizer was great. The lobster pasta special was also excellent and notably the lobster was perfectly cooked which is difficult to do in a dish like that. My grilled tuna was perfectly medium rare and paired perfectly with the kale and beets. The service was pleasant, professional, and well informed. The wines by the glass were excellent a nice dry white greek wine and a light greek red, I recommend that folks try the greek wines they are excellent. I would recommend this restaurant and will return next time I'm in the city.
This has always been one of my favorite restaurants and I have not been in about a year. Im not sure if it's because we went so early at 530 before a show, the waiter seemed off, took a while for him to come to table and get our drinks. I was dying for Avra chips and they came out under cooked, the beet salad was nice but my swordfish was overcooked and dry even though I asked to cook it medium rare. My friend had the lamb and it came out raw and had to send it back. It wasn't as good as usual. Not sure I'll go back again which makes me sad :(
The live music is a nice touch on the weekends but the stereo / overhead music is awful
Jazz brunch was the highlight of our quick NYC trip!
Every time I go there same exceptional food and service.
I've been going to Avra for the past 15 years. It was over 2 years since I'd been to the restaurant and found the atmosphere to be as welcoming as always, the wait staff very attentive and helpful and the overall food very good. One of my favorites has always been the grilled octopus, and, unfortunately, I was disappointed with the dish. The portion was very ample but it was overcooked and the wonderful perfectly balanced vinegarette with red onions that it used to be served in was gone. Instead, it was served with an over abundance of white onions - so much so that it was difficult to tell the difference between the octopus and onions and a rather bland sauce. So disappointing. However, the zucchini chips were paper thin with a delightfully light batter and succulently sweet...still as delightful as ever!
Delecious food, good service, a bit noisy. Good, midtown east side location.
Too many tables too tightly together.
Truly one of the exceptional restaurants in New York City
Good Greek food with excellent fish! It is quiet, spacious space and very agreeable
We were in and out in 28 minutes.
Our server was great. Friendly, accommodating and attentive. I cannot remember the gentleman's name. The hostess was friendly and seated right away at a nice table that was comfortable spacious and allowed us to enjoy our meal without being seated next to another table.
Food we as always was delicious. Go-to for great service, food and enjoyable night out.
A little noisy otherwise perfect. Excellent food and service
Excellent food; delivered as soon as prepared from the kitchen; best octopus, souvlaki, warm seafood salad we have ever had. Will return.
Date with my wife :-)
Perfect! Thank you.
Got very expensive.
Not a place I can go once a week
one of the best lunches and one of the best lunch values in the city
Still one of my favorite places. Consistently delicious- they have the best Greek food in town.
The service Nd food is excellent but the tables are too close together to enable an intimate business conversation.
I frankly felt like was at food hall.
Always a great choice for excellebt food and service. We keep coming back because the quality is always the same
Fue mi 3 era vez de verdad no entiendo porque bajo el nivel del servicio
ojo la calidad siege muy bien pero el servicio cambió
As usual everything was very good. the only exception the food was a bit cold
Wonderful time as always ...this time celebrating a birthday
The food was very very good. The serving staff was fantastic, polite, cheerful and professional. It was our first time there so we were not aware that there was middle and back room/seating area. We were seated in the bar area. I am sure the atmosphere is more enjoyable in the middle and back areas.
Superb food, Branzino and Char fish was great. Appetizer Stuffed Calamari was best I’ve had and Greek salad was great. Staff and servers were most attentive and professional.
Very nice place the staff was very friendly and the food was delicious I will be definitely be back
Avra is a authentic and established restaurant l, which never gets old. Always a pleasure dining at Avra.
excellent Branzino fresh
the Acra Chips were great
drinks mixed right
Amazing.. delicious Fagri. Caring service. I didn’t have the urgency to leave... just the opposite.. thank you!
We went for Sunday brunch. Options for all, including a fussy vegan. The staff made us very welcome throughout. The food was excellent, and the Greek “cookie plate” had jthe best melomakarona (honey macaroons) that I’ve ever tried. A friend who’s not a sweets person swooped down in the remaining 8 varied cookies, made by a superior pastry chef. We also enjoyed the jazz group, present, but not obtrusive. 5 stars!
Extremely expensive and I can’t figure out why. I would suggest Ethos Gallery on 51st instead. Ethos has a virtually identical menu, but slightly better food, much better ambience, better service.
Great spot for regular dinner or a very important special occasion
Went with girlfriends was delightful and the food was fresh and outstanding ! I’d go back in a second !
The place is lovely, and overall the food was good. We ordered Sepia which was fantastic. Also lamb chops but they came out overcooked, so we sent them back,. They then came out almost raw. WE didn't have time to send back again as we had an event to get to. The restaurant did the right thing and removed them from the bill. Staff was very attentive and engaging - great service.
Always a favorite. Just wonderful. Can’t wait to go back.
Lunch special menu was amazing, the best rate between quality and price.
One of the best Greek restaurants in Manhattan
