From the appetizers to the whole fish entree every bite was absolutely delicious. One of the best meals out I’ve had in a very long time. Would highly recommend

Too loud during lunch. There’s ZERO need for music on top of everyone already there.

This is a large outdoor/indoor Greek restaurant serving superb food with great service, showing an amazing level of efficiency and staff training.
Pick a whole fish from the showcase and it will be grilled and seasoned to perfection. Save room for the baklava dessert.
Choose from the excellent selection of Greek wines.
A perfect start to our New York holiday.

First time I’ve ever been disappointed at Avra. It was extremely busy with all indoor tables (at pre pandemic density) and all outdoor tables filled. Wait staff and kitchen both seemed overwhelmed as it took 30 minutes to order a cocktail, another 15 for it to arrive, and another 15 thereafter to order food. Usually one of the best fish meals in town, the Lavraki was too small and overcooked. It gets another try in a few months, but perhaps only one.

excellent food; patient and kind service; they do not rush you to leave.
Quite loud and difficult to hear, even outdoors.

Good food. I had Mediterranean Sea bass , grilled. It was delicious. Greek salad for table and eggplant and zucchini chips were equally good. Dessert not as good.

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.

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.

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.

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
