Fabulous food, service, ambience. Had an amazing dinner in Avra’s Beverly Hills restaurant and can only say NY was better.

The food is delicious, but the hostess stand is extremely chaotic and disorganized. We were waiting so long for our table that we wound up eating at the bar and the bartender/server was rude and unfriendly

Being in NYC for a just a few days, we wanted to make sure to stop in for dinner on a recommendation
of a colleague. We were not disappointed, dinner and service were amazing. Everything was fresh, and done to perfection.

Avra is my favorite restaurant. The food and service is always outstanding. The noise level is horrible. It's hard to have a conversation.

Amazingly tasty food and very well prepared. The fixed price lunch offers a tremendous selection and is very fairly priced. It's particularly nice to sit outside and the service was great!

I took an adviser to lunch. It was my first time at Avra Estiatoria. My guest and I loved the food. All dishes were flavorful, fresh and well plated. The service could not have been better. A lovely experience whatever brings you to this restaurant.

All in all, probably a type 5 seafood restaurant in Manhattan. Several fresh seafood choices on ice adjacent to the kitchen. All perfectly prepared (grilled/sautéed) Mediterranean style. If going with a group, make it a point to order and share several appetizers with a bottle of wine.

Food was good, wait staff was impatient, worst parts were the noise inside and the mouse/rat I saw when we opted for the outside seating area. I know it’s NY, but still don’t like seeing them while I’m eating.

The food was fantastic and the ambiance is very comfortable for a midtown restaurant. While we didn't eat outside I would definitely recommend it on a nice day...they have a good space.

Even though the food is actually good, the service wasn’t good at all: total lack of elegance or touch from our server. The place look tired, like an old school New York place trying to compete with fresh and modern culinary institutions. A bit overpriced and mediocre overall, if you are looking for an upscale restaurant with excellent standards this is probably not your place.

Food was fine. Service was bad. I wouldn't go back. It's definitely not a place for a romantic dinner. The tables are about 2 inches from each other.

This greek restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years. The barbounia and the Meditterean snapper were fresh and prepared perfectly. The yougurt dessert is a must have. Also, the service is impeccable, our waiter Alex was top shelf and very knowledgable.

The wait staff could have been more attentive. Also, it took about half an hour to get our entrees. For the prices the restaurant charges, everything should have bee 5 star.

Great Greek cuisine in the heart of Manhattan. Freshly baked bread and tasty vegetables accompany delicious fish and meat dishes. Do not miss this one while in New York.

It was okay. The appetizer was amazing. The entree I had, cod or halibut (can’t even remember which) was very bland. I was expecting to be blown away by the reviews. It was a 3.5 out of 5

The food was very good especially the value so the ambiance and food compared to the price is an amazing deal. Their prix fixe lunch menu is a great deal. The service was a little spotty so my only concern when it's busy, but all the other categories are spot on.

Have visited NYC 2x a year from San Antonio, Texas for the past 15 years. Ate at AVRA first time we visited and have returned every year since. Nothing has changed... same exceptional level of service, quality of food and a real NYC "vibe". Not a tourist restaurant... its were Madison and Park Ave business execs make deals after work. Best fish in NYC... flown in daily from the mediterranean.
Avra is has it all... one top 3 restaurants internationally.

This is our second visit. The service was quite slow on Monday night. The food is delicious and the portions could be smaller.
We will be back again.

An excellent dining experience. We were celebrating my partners birthday and everything was perfect. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. We had the tuna tartare to start which was also delicious. Must try the olive cake deserter. I can rave about the food but the service was outstanding as well. Our server was Antonia. She was personable and gave us so much attention. What a great evening. Thank you Avra team!
