Avra Estiatorio on 48th
Book your next event with us
FOOD WAS GOOD AND PLENTIFUL. SERVICE ALSO GOOD. WOULD RECOMMEND.
It was fine. The food was very good. The waiter could have been more attentive. Other than that, no complaints. We had a wonderful lunch!
The food is excellent the restaurant is extremely crowded an you cannot have a good conversation. The servers are very well educated in the menu and can recommend suitable items.
You need a reservation to make sure you get a table in a timely manner.
I would recommend but for a romantic dinner it is challenge to hear each other or have a private conversation.
Very pleasant and great food
I have been to Avra several times and had a positive experience. Unfortunately this business dinner was very disappointing. There were fruit flies all over the table we were given and the manager was not as 'hands on' as he should have been. We eventually moved between courses but the flies, although less, were still there. Secondly, the service brought orders to our table twice that were not ours. Finally the bill we got, when reviewed, was not ours! They gave us some else' bill and it was far larger! Overall an establishment of this type should not have these type of issues. BTW the food was average at best compared to prior experiences. I would not recommend it till they fix what i would consider basic for this caliber of restaurant.
Muy recomendable. Fuimos a almorzar y tienen un buen menu a un precio razonable
Great service, great food
Best restaurant I’ve been to In NYC
I highly recommend if your a seafood lover
Awesome as always.....
I would have gave an "Outstanding" review for Overall but the noise level was so loud, you couldn't hear the person next to you. The food, service, and ambiance were wonderful.
Excellent food and service. Perfect for lunch and dinner.
I haven’t been to Avra in a long while. It’s good to see that the food and service are as good as always. However, the prices seem to have gone up substantially. But then again “you get what you pay for”. If you want a quiet table ask for one in the far back where the rest rooms are.
Took friends there due to previous experiences. Unfortunately, our service was average (asked how things were but already moving on before you could answer), and cold mannerisms. My prawn dish was cold (not Luke warm) cold when delivered to table. Just not a good experience at all. Not sure I would return with so many other better NY options.
The halibut and salmon were both delicious and moist. The fig ice cream is heavenly and a perfect match to the molten lava cake.
We come to NYC every Labor Day weekend and Avra is one of our favorites places to eat!
It has everything to make a night special.....location, ambiance, happy attentive staff....oh and the food and its presentation make it so easy to count this as our favorite spot!
We will be back!
Had lunch with my wife and friends.
The food and dessert was particularly good, and everybody was very pleased.
Will come back again soon !!
Perfect place and perfect foid! I recomend it! Congrats
Food is overpriced- $18 for a small bowl of shredded romaine lettuce with sparse cheese and a few olives.
Fish was good size portion for the $35-40 per entree price point. Both the Halibut and Char were a bit undercooked; wet and mushy on inside- not flaky. Atmosphere is nice, although restaurant is looking a bit worn these days.
My husband and cousin ordered the Branzini
Our waiter failed to tell us the price
When we received our bill the branzini was $116.00
Wow were we shocked!
Will not be going back !
Great early dinner outside in the court, great ambiance fantastic food& cocktails
The service is top notch. The food is incredible as always. Love the place!!!
Wonderful Greek restaurant. Lots of fresh fish options. Gorgeous Greek salads. Can eat inside or out. Definitely recommend.
Whenever I'm in New York, this is the place I go to. Consistently delicious!
Enjoyed fabulous meal dining outside at this charming restaurant. The grilled octopus was superb and service was excellent. Catching up with out of town visitors and waiter perfectly timed. Able to enjoy food and our company without being rushed.
Food is amazing though the prices are high. Very fresh seafood and an extensive wine list are the highlights.
This is our go to Greek place. The fish is so fresh and they have the best chips and tzatziki. Love it!
Always outstanding food and service
Best place to go in Midtown NY
Had a 6pm reservation and the restaurant was still half empty, yet we were seated in the back room. Very quiet space lacking ambiance, the wall A/C was set way too high and it was depressing. The food was good, but overpriced. Overall, this place relies on regulars who enjoy free drinks at the bar by tipping the female bartender, but if they don't know you expect to be treated as though you are inconveniencing them. Not a great experience for a reunion with old girlfriends.
The key word here is fresh and simple. Not plain, but simply prepared grilled fish and other Mediterranean delights. A perfect lunch spot where you can get more than a plain salad and still eat "right"
The food and service were great. We dined alfresco and Manhattan can be a bit noisy. Not an inexpensive place but pretty good value for Manhattan,
A myriad of fish offerings which my companions thought were excellent. And the restaurant had enough vegan offerings for me in the appetizers and side dish listings.
I would recommend.
I have been to numerous lunches at Avra but this was our first dinner.
Avra really knows how to cook fish to perfection and the fish is always very very fresh, which is not easy in to find in the city. We started with halloumi cheese, perfectly grilled to the right temperature and texture. Then came our wild white snapper from Greece - hard to find even in the Aegean and so fresh - grilled with capers and a touch of herbs, just the way it should be - it was as if we were eating right by the Aegean. A side of wonderfully grilled vegetables was also great. Final came with mixed fruit and baklava with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. There alo is a great wine list, we opted for one of the Sancerres. The bar tender is also great and made excellent mix of vodka with fresh lemon juice.
Our servers Andreas and Iannis were very professional, courteous and attentive.
Avra 48 has great ambiance for outdoor and indoor dining. We took advantage of the weather and sat out. The outdoor decor is so pretty that one forgets this is the middle of Manhattan!
We will be back.
Amazing meal—delicious food, accommodating waitstaff, excellent wine suggestion by the sommelier...nothing bad to say at all! Ambiance is fantastic and it’s a wonderful place! Will definitely be dining here again.
Always delicious front start to end!
My co worker and I took 2 people from a very important account. Everything was excellent except our waiter did not come around much and we were waiting for him to come around- we actually had to flag him down 3 times to stop for our needs. Everything else ( host/ ambience/ food/ table ) was amazing !
Great service. Good cocktails. An all time favorite.
Great food and service. Beautiful dining room
Great food and price. Fantastic lunch course for 29.50
Great as usual
The service and food is always top notch and very authentic. Our waiter was great and we didn't feel rushed. Looking forward to our next visit.
