One of our favorite NYC restaurants. Impressed with their cleanliness in the face of COVID-19 crisis.

Service was excellent. Son has dietary issue and waiter was extremely accommodating. He knew all the ingredients and made substitutions while being pleasant and making us feel comfortable. The food was delicious too!

I was disappointed that there was no hummus and pita as is usual for Avra. I was told that at 4:00 they don’t have it ready yet. But in any event I love Avra.

Expensive, but worth it ! And a more relaxed ambiance than the 60th St “scene”

Fantastic value during lunch, 3 course meal for $30. The Greek coffee medium is a perfect addition with the desert. The complimentary hummus, olives and bread made it feel like 5 courses.

Loved it! Much better than Avra on 60th Street which is nearer to our apartment. More authentic menu here with dishes not available in the other restaurant. Wine list is also different. This location has been a longtime favorite of ours and we will be back. If you love Greek food, this is the place for you.

This is my favorite restaurant. The Food is usually excellent but this time, the grilled octopus lacked saltiness and grilled lavraki was watery and poory cooked. It may have happened at bad time. I'll try again and make a judgement.

We highly recommend Avra Estiatorio on 48th! The food is amazing and the ambiance is very nice and romantic! We are from Long Island and we have eaten here several times during the past few years and it is always a superb experience! If you love fish this is the place. And if you are a meat lover, the 8 oz filet mignon is excellent. In fact, I would say the filet mignon is better than some of the famous "steak restaurants" we have been to! Try it, you will like it!

Alles prima, nur zu laut! Sehr gut besucht zur Mittagszeit, ohne Reservierung wahrscheinlich aussichtslos einen Tisch zu bekommen. Trotz der Lautstärke sehr empfehlenswert.

First time eating at Avra, and won’t be the last. Great food and good service. Recommend the greek salad, fried calamari, and the Branzino, which was huge (but you pay per pound)

Filet mignon was dry - would not recommend

Chocolate lava cake with fig ice cream for dessert was delicious.

Avra is a wonderful restaurant with excellent fresh Greek fish and vegetables. We frequent both nyc locations and also the Los Angeles restaurant. The lunch price fix menu is the best lunch deal in town!

La comida es estupenda. La atención es buena considerando que el lugar está siempre lleno. Hay que reservar y no te dan la mesa hasta que estén todos listos para entrar. Esto no me parece bueno porque el lugar para esperar la mesa es muy pequeño.

Great atmosphere on a Wednesday night as Avra was quite busy. My wife and I enjoyed another wonderful evening at Avra. The food was outstanding - the branzino was terrific as was the Greek salad!! The service was great and our waiter, Thanatos, was also very, very good. Hopefully, we get back to Avra real soon for another special evening!!

We came in late to the Lexington & the reception recommended it . It was simply perfect. Right across the street . The staff was great the service was exceptional. The food was amazing from the octopus appetizer to the lobster spaghetti, lambchops to the lava cake and olive oil cake they all paired well with the sea smoke Pinot Noir..which is extremely hard to find. Thank you we had an amazing1st night dinner in NY. 💙

It was Valentines Day, so I would imagine things were a little more hectic than usual. I would like to try it again on a more “normal” evening. But it was very enjoyable.
