Great food and service for such a large restaurant. Very pretty, lively, bustling outdoor space.
Enjoyed the meal and the ambience. The service was good too. Recommend the sea bass.
Always an amazing meal! Great service, delicious seafood, awesome drinks!
As always, excellent service by the wait team!
Delicious food, well presented, helpful manager and staff, fun and friendly wait staff, nice set-up
Prix fixe lunch was a great value! Food and service were excellent.
Amazing service but food wasn’t great and prices were high since we didn’t receive the same level of food or presentation as higher end restaurants.
Great food and service presented in a lovely outdoor setting
Great ambiance, vibe, and wine list offerings. Outdoor space is magical.

The food, staff and ambience are outstanding. This was our second meal at Avra, the first at the mid-town location a few years ago. The outdoor spaces are lovely. We sat at a table on the sidewalk adjacent to the courtyard and felt part of a festive yet peaceful gathering. We shared the beet salad to start. It is ample and delicious. The garlic almond puree it comes with is a perfect compliment to the rich beets. We shared a lithrini and had the steamed mountain greens and broccoli rabe. The chefs know how to subtly bring out the best in what they serve: no heavy sauces, no overwhelming additions - just seasoning to let the food shine. Best meal out I have had in a long time.
One caution: if you care about the price tag, be sure to ask what your fish choice costs per pound.
Appetizers, salads and desserts were excellent. Fish by the pound was a disappointment due both to poor deboning and taste.
Great dinner and especially loved the grilled Bronzino and grilled octopus
Food and service were excellent as ever but ordered a crab cake for appetizer course -
One crab cake only were share the cost was $45!
I couldn’t believe that was the appetizer cost surely they
Made an error in the bill!
absolutely not - if you have a special appetizer not on the menu that costs $44 you would be careful
And let patrons know the price up front.
Excellent service and food! We added a guest last minute, and they were able to accomodate. Much appreciated!
Consistent as always… Delicious food, amazing service, numerous options to accommodate
Great food and extra friendly service.
Always excellent service & food.
Amazing food and great service, as always.. go for the swordfish!!
Excellent prix fixe lunch & outside dining options. Very good fish.
Excellent service, delicious food- great night
Great food. Great service. Super friendly staff for such a large and frantic spot. A little pricy but worth every cent. I much prefer it to 60th street location which is much closer for me. Highly recommend.
Fantastic experience. Abra never disappoints. Fish is so fresh and perfectly prepared
Great food, service,& atmosphere.
Wonderful outdoor space.
We always have a good experience here! The food is fresh and nicely prepared. The service is very attentive. We keep returning because we enjoy it so much!
Been coming to Avra for 9+ years. Came with wife and son for her birthday. Nice table outside - food was good - shrimp mousaka, steak, fries. Nice wine - good cab by the glass. Service was terrible. 20 min just to get a drink order in - literally had to go find someone. And then pretty intermittent service after that. Did not bother to stay for coffee or dessert as we had no idea how long that would take. Noted it was my wife’s birthday in the reservation and when we checked in - and nothing - no acknowledgement or anything. Surprisingly poor experience from one of our favorites
Our waiter, Tommy, is the absolute best. Food and wine were perfect, as always. We love Avra 48 -- like a quick trip to Athens. What could be better?
We appreciate the professional service staff!
Food was good Greek fare. Enjoyed my company. Service was terrible. Wine, a red Burgundy Grand Cru was corked. Asked for the manager twice. No show. Sticking to Milos.
Too noisy inside
A bit too expensive...especially the drinks and appetizers
Amazing!! Really good food
This is our go to restaurant in the neighborhood. Food is consistently wonderful.
Cheerful, delicious, unrushed, we had an off menu request that was accommodated, all in all a wonderful evening
It was an okay restaurant for the price we paid. Nothing special.
They have lots of seafood on the menu, and we ordered grilled fish, octopus, fried zucchini, truffled fries and a Greek salad. It was nothing special.
I don’t recommend Greek salad. Fries and octopus were okay. The fish was a little boring and lacked flavour.
Service was fine. We ordered a bottle of white wine, and the server took it away from our sight every time after refilling our glasses. I am not sure if we even finished it or if had that same wine for the next refill. That seemed a little odd to me.
It’s probably ok if you compare this place to some others in the neighbourhood, but it’s a very average quality in compare to even casual places in Europe.
Have been dining there for 20 years
Quality , freshness , service and manny of the staff are unchanged .
Recommended for people who enjoy outstanding vegetables and of course fish
Good food, service was a little slow but everything is like that right now and our server was really trying. Overall, we really enjoyed dinner and would come back next time in town.
Food is always outstanding with generous portions. Waiter did not know was a kir royale was. We asked for a drink after sitting for 10 minutes. Asked to order appetizers. Never asked how our meals were. Took a very long time to get check. I understand Covid makes everything harder. Will always love Avra but the staff tonight was not a good reflection of your restaurant.
Sitting outside in the most desirable part of the restaurant, there was an infestation of tiny round bugs. Flying all over our appetizer that we covered our dishes with napkins. The restaurant staff walked around all the outside tables spraying a “toxic free” liquid on the ground which didn’t help at all so we moved inside. The service was poor after the move and the evening was disappointing.
Always love it ! Best grilled octopus in the city.
