Been on Avra many times and yesterday was a bad experience.

We sat on bar for 20 minutes and we could not get a drink!Asked person attending the bar and she said that we will need to wait for at least another 10minutes.

Our table for two could not be smaller:

This restaurant is understaffed and quality of service is clearly affected.

Great food, good service. If you crave authentic Greek/Mediterranean food, this is the place to go. Yes, it's on a pricier side, but totally worth it.

Got lunch prix fixe menu.

radish/olive: 👍👍
octopus/calamari/branzino/lamb chops: 👍👍
baklava/walnut cake: 👎
service: 👎👎

Food is great, service was not.

There was no one around most of the time. For example, each time we had to call them for water. Also there was so much wait between courses.

The radish with coconut was different and great. Food was great overall, except the deserts. Hazelnut in baklava was a poor choice.

The prix fix lunch is a great value. Restaurant was very crowed and waitress brought the wrong order but pleasantly replaced it with the appetizer my friend did order.

The 60th Street location seems to have a more refined atmosphere.

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

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.
