Mediterranean
In Greek mythology Avra is the Goddess of the breezes and thus Avra Madison aptly named. Our cuisine, gracious service and Greek Estiatorio inspired decor will invoke warm Mediterranean nights cooled by Avra's gentle sea breezes. Sit back, relax and allow us to transport you to the tranquility of the Mediterranean while you feast on charcoal grilled freshly caught whole fish, sip a glass of white wine from Mykonos and enjoy the company of friends and family.

Lunch prices fixe was well worth it. 29.99 per person. We were 4 people, we got 4 different appetizers. One spreads, tuna tartar and 2 salads. Plenty of food. Main courses were great. I got branding which was a whole fish. It was delicious. Brought half home. Service was great!

I was disappointed in my last few visits here. Service was rushed (main courses served at the same time barely-finished appetizer plates were cleared - not even 10 seconds between courses, bread and hummus served at the same time as the apps). This has happened several times lately. Maybe ask me if I need to get out in 45 minutes. I don’t.
Also, the portions seem to be getting smaller (though prices have remained the same). Not the experience I’ve loved in the past . Sorry to see the decline.

For a relaxing Mediterranean style seafood restaurant while in the Madison Avenue midtown area, this two floor dining establishment provides a comfortable and relaxing dining experience. Wait staff highly friendly and competent. Food preparation and appearance nicely presented.

The food was good and the server was nice but the hosts were terrible. They were completely void of any pride in customer service. I had a 9pm reservation for 7 people and they kept us standing for 30 minutes with no updates (instead we had to ask 3 times about status) - and at no time, including after being seated, did they apologize for the wait. Typically a restaurant would apologize and offer a drink while you wait or send over apps - nothing, not even an acknowledgment of the delay. Very much fell short of their peer restaurants; disappointing given we were there to celebrate a birthday.

Absolutely LOVED AVRA! Lovely atmosphere, GREAT food, and service! We ordered some dips and pita bread to start............all were delicious, with enough to pack up for home. Cocktails were expertly mixed and YUMMY! My daughter ordered swordfish that was tender and flavorful. I had tuna that was soooo fresh and delicious. AVRA is a definite return to restaurant! LOVED!!

I ordered the fish soup and the Tuna Tartar. Both were under seasoned and bland. I was surprised by the lackluster dishes as they were expensive appetizers. I enjoyed the olive oil cake and the wine.

Service was great and the ambiance was beautiful. The best part of the restaurant was people watching. I sat near the bar and watched all the beautiful people. I would try the place again and order something different.

The food was the best but the hostess told us we couldn't sit in a seat and forced us by the front door and we froze every time the door opened.

It was a lie and we watched as a single woman sat in one 2 top and another single woman in the other. They just knew nobody would sit next to the freezing door. We ate quickly and left

Lies don't make for good dinner companions and we will eat somewhere else next time.

The vibe, food and overall experience was great. Only gripe is that we were sat right behind a service station and close to the front desk. The restaurant is beautiful and there is alot to look at , just wish we were sat at a better table.

We were greeted warmly at the desk and our request for a window table immediately accommodated. After the coat-check people "parked" our coats, we were led to a great tale. Our waiter promptly took a drink order and, for the next three hours, demonstrated what a professional he was. Avra is an amazingly well run restaurant. Oh, and the food was delicious and creatively presented! We used to live on the very bock (60th Street) where Avra is located and hadn't gotten around to going there. Now we can't wait for an excuse to go back.

Having said that, Ashley was terrific.
At these prices, food should be excellent.....it was good.
