It was Valentines Day, so I would imagine things were a little more hectic than usual. I would like to try it again on a more “normal” evening. But it was very enjoyable.

I was at Avra twice this week, it was filled and lively (even on a Monday night) the food is consistently very good! Fish and octopus have great preparations. I’ve been going there since it first opened and it never disappoints!

This is probably the fifth time I come to Avra. It is a very good Greek restaurant with many food options and decent pricing. Would like to see more lunch options and less noise with local band.

Please don't forget the olives in a martini. We had to remind the waiter a couple of times. Otherwise the food was wonderful.

The food, particularly the Greek specialties and seafood, is very good. Flavorful and presented well. Service is very competent. As the evening progresses, the restaurant tends to get very crowed and noisy. On a Tuesday evening, arrived for a 6:15 reservation and was seated immediately with a choice of tables. By 8 pm every table was occupied and there was a crowd at the door waiting for tables. Definitely not a place for a romantic dinner or a business meeting, but fun - especially with a group.

We asked for a quiet table and were seated near the bar. The rest of the space seemed more lively. The service was excellent and everything from a simple mixed green salad and the fresh fish through the molten chocolate cake was delicious! I would definitely go again.

Wife’s 60th birthday. They never mentioned it. We felt very rushed, and the food was just ok, and not inexpensive.

Our meal was good but not as great as past experiences at Avra- it was very hectic and loud, my food arrived cold, and the quality of the food was not as high as prior times we have been there. Please return to making sure you only serve top quality!

Despite the fact I had a reaervation and wished to be seated, the (male) host instructed me to wait and it took 10 minutes to discover my friend was already sitting at our table. It was unprofessional. The food is quite pricey; you would expect a higher level of service. I have been before but will think again before returning.

Took my daughter there for her birthday. We split the Greek Salad and octopus for appetizers. She had the Lamb Chops and I had Dorado. Topped off with Greek Yogurt for dessert. Very nice time.

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....

If you want an incredible meal every single time, eat here. With a million options around Avra will always shine as one of the best places to spend happy time.

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 :(
