Requested an outdoor table at the time of booking. Upon check in was told that there was no room outside even though there were plenty of empty tables. Service was very quick. Food was ok. Branzino had an exceptional number of bones. Baklava was delicious.

As always, everything about AVRA was top shelf, including the greeters, the manager and the waiter. The fish was second to none. Incredible all around. Looking forward to our next AVRA dinner.

The food was excellent; the service awful: very slow an inattentive. The restaurant was not crowded and this was a Sunday evening. We had also indicated that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary, which went entirely unnoticed. I would have thought that there would be some recognition or response from the restaurant

Noticed a waiter kept removing his mask which I thought was in appropriate.

They've expanded their outdoor space to accommodate just as many people outside as they can sit inside. Wound up sitting in the wine room on a Friday afternoon. It was very quiet inside and we were the only table in that section. Service was perfect and the food was as outstanding as always.

As fabulous as ever. The food and service were outstanding. Being in a circular tent outside kept us safe from the downpour but away from the noise and crowds indoors. I do hope they’ll keep those.

One of the best seafood dining experiences we have had in a long time. The food was top notch, and the service was attentive and reminiscent of old-school quality.

This is a great restaurant. The fish and salads are wonderful.
The luncheon special is spectacular. My favorite COVID restaurant
Because it has such a lively courtyard and not on the street.

High prices and limited fish options compared to the past.
Halibut was overcooked and octopus fishy taste.
Concerns about freshness.

As always the octopus was cooked to perfection- Greek salad always amazing- the tomatoes are always firm and sweet. Dover sole was to die for.
Been coming to this establishment for 8 years now and it never disappoints!
