The setting and the service was great! But the food was disappointing. Just so-so, especially for the price point.

The food is always wonderful and fresh.
The service was very attentive.
Each time I have had dinner at Avria I have not been disappointed.
Although I find $20.95 for a tomato is a tad too pricy.

Great restaurant with an amazing selection of fresh fish and Mediterranean cuisine. Extensive wine list with great world renowned options. Sommelier was a nice touch as well and recommended a great bottle of Rosè that was not on the menu.

Outstanding, delicious food. Came with two friends for lunch, pice fix and it was wonderful. Service was excellent. Next time we would come at a quieter time. It was crowded and noisy at 2pm but I will be back. I would highly recommend this restaurant, a real gem. So pretty.

Avra Midtown is a good to very good restaurant. Love the hustle and bustle of a popular restaurant with a variety of open air or inside seating. However, the tables for two inside are too small and tight requiring guests and employees constantly juggling plates to fit the fare. If you are still eating a course you can feel rushed to make room for the next. A variety of fish is sold by the pound for two people, while it lasts, and we enjoyed the opportunity to have fresh, whole fish. Served table side, it mostly is deboned save for pieces nearest the head, and was perfectly grilled. The sliced tomato appetizer was mostly pedestrian with the oregano dumped mostly on one or two slices rather than appropriately rained down on the platter. The tomatoes most certainly could have been juicer and did not have a wow flavor like a classic Jersey Beefsteak. Their sesame crusted bread is delicious with my husband commenting that they could sell just the crusts! Overall a good to very good restaurant. I think the vibe is a factor why everyone returns time and again. Extensive wine lists, good waitstaff service, though the hostess was anything but welcoming. One expects that if you wish to be a Hostess you should be willing to smile and be organized because Open Table contacted us asking why we missed our reservation. I would suggest that housekeeping cleaning procedures be done with more care as the recessed lighting over our table had lots of cobwebs in it. Also, the air conditioning seemed to get overwhelmed mid-dinner with a noticeable decrease in cool air mid-dinner and it was extremely humid out.

This was our first visit to Avra Estiatorio and it was wonderful. The property is pretty vast and beautiful. There are different outdoor dining spaces, some indoor-outdoor spaces and the rest are fully indoors. We grabbed a corner booth, which was very spacious and cozy. Light jazz was audible from our booth. Tatiana was our server. She was very knowledgeable, personable and attentive. She made sure our experience was memorable. We started with martinis, which were cold and amply poured. The soft bread basket is accompanied by a creamy hummus and a mixture of Mediterranean olives. For dinner, my wife had the lobster pasta in a light tomato sauce (she loved it) and I had the Youvetsi, which is a mixed seafood dish consisting of shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels in tomato and herbs with orzo and feta cheese (delicious). I highly recommend Avra Estiatorio. We'll be back.
