Avra is a wonderful restaurant with excellent fresh Greek fish and vegetables. We frequent both nyc locations and also the Los Angeles restaurant. The lunch price fix menu is the best lunch deal in town!

The food never fails. Always a great meal. The service on this night was off. Waited way too long for dinner to arrive.

La comida es estupenda. La atención es buena considerando que el lugar está siempre lleno. Hay que reservar y no te dan la mesa hasta que estén todos listos para entrar. Esto no me parece bueno porque el lugar para esperar la mesa es muy pequeño.

Great atmosphere on a Wednesday night as Avra was quite busy. My wife and I enjoyed another wonderful evening at Avra. The food was outstanding - the branzino was terrific as was the Greek salad!! The service was great and our waiter, Thanatos, was also very, very good. Hopefully, we get back to Avra real soon for another special evening!!

We came in late to the Lexington & the reception recommended it . It was simply perfect. Right across the street . The staff was great the service was exceptional. The food was amazing from the octopus appetizer to the lobster spaghetti, lambchops to the lava cake and olive oil cake they all paired well with the sea smoke Pinot Noir..which is extremely hard to find. Thank you we had an amazing1st night dinner in NY. 💙

If you want the freshest ingredients comprising you particular dish, go eat at Avra. The menu is extensive... the portions generous, and the service 5 star.

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.

Surprising disappointment. My entrée, the lamb chops, we’re tough and chewy, not to mention only three were served, and the presentation was terrible. If this were Five Guys, and priced like Five Guys, I wouldn’t complain. But my tab for the night exceeded $300. Actually, go to Five Guys, better value.

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.

Been coming here for years and it is always a treat because of the memories that we’ve made here.
Don’t sit anywhere near the door on cool nights.
Food and service is always top top.
Roberto the Sommelier was great advising us on which wine to drink and taking care of us. highly recommended

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.

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.
