We dined here while visiting from Michigan. The food was incredible, but the service was even better! We loved our server Mike from Romania. Would definitely come back!!

Restaurant is noisy

My only complaint ever with this restaurant is the noise level. The food and service are always excellent.
We went early on a Monday night, so the noise level was more subdued. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

Had a lovely time with friends - unfortunately young folk today think that everyone needs to hear their very loud and uninteresting conversations and the noise kept spoiling the ambiance which is otherwise lovely. Always reliably excellent food and great service.

As always, a solid dining experience overall. I find some of the items absurdly expensive (e.g., the Greek salad at $26), but the pricing is generally consistent with similar dining venues. Also, it is hard to know what things cost these days, so I tend to more tolerant. Waitstaff was really good. Good, as always, was excellent.

As always food was amazing and the service was equally amazing. Avra never disappoints. The avra chips, grilled octopus and spreads were absolutely delicious. The fish was cooked and deboned to perfection and the truffle fries were so good. Love this restaurant. It remains one of my favorite nyc eateries after 15 plus years. I highly recommend this restaurant

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.
