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.

The manager came to check we were happy.

The Somalier was excellent.

The fish was perfect and was divided between us.

Not too loud

Amazing Avra!
Avra on Madison is an amazing dining experience.
We arrived for a late lunch, had a delightful bottle of wine.
The Avra chips are the best on the city. The Halibut was perfectly prepared.
If you are looking for fresh fish prepared simply with just olive oil and lemon- slam dunk. The bar scene is busy

Your Sommelier is exquisite and the food is always fresh and delicious. It’s truly one of my go to spots to dine in Manhattan. Always a great crowd and consistently excellent service! Thank you! I strongly suggest the Greek salad which is so fresh and brings me back to Greece every time- I find myself craving it throughout the week!

We were greeted by very friendly hosts , which was not the case when they first opened, and they set the tone for a lovely dining experience. The decor is beautiful and the table seating quite comfortable with plenty of space to hear each other talk. My inky reservation is the pricing. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Hard to get past that. Especially for a Sunday dinner. There should be a price fixe option

The new Madison Avra location has a different upscale vibe that was interesting. However, I was disappointed with the brunch selections offered on a Sunday. Pretty uninspired and nothing special, especially given the price tag of a very average Greek omelet. I should have ordered off the regular menu, as that may have been more up to my expectations. Either really do brunch well, or don't offer it as a sideline. Also an ouzo-splashed bloody Mary or another brunch cocktail would have been nice on the menu.

This is one of the most fun places in New York City. The atmosphere is exciting. The food was amazing. The whole experience is special. The team from the hostess to our waiter and his assistants were amazing. Eric the manager stopped by to check on our table. This is definitely a restaurant that we will make a regular spot on our trips to NYC. I would recommend it to everyone. Great people watching too!

The food and service was excellent. Was given a small table by the bar. It was cramped and noisy. The bar was very crowded. I should have asked to be seated somewhere else. The food was so good that will not stop me from going back, we had an excellent meal and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Even with reservations, I’ve never sat at Avra on time. Always at least 15’ late and in several occasions more than that.

When I tried to change my reservation time 30minutes earlier but she didn’t find my reservation... it was terrible. Later I called again and changed only 15 minutes earlier. But in reality no guests there before me I could make 30 minutes earlier.

Bad services
She didn’t find my reservation in my first call
She couldn’t accept my request for 30 minutes earlier.

She needs to take more training!!!!!

Avra is one of my favorite restaurants time and time again. However, they really should hire a more professional hostess staff at the 60th St. location. The room was completely empty when we arrived for an early lunch and she would not seat me until the other member of my party was there. Pretty ridiculous.

We had the Dover Sole and the Loupe de Mer. Both among the best fish we have ever had. Perfectly prepared. Both vegetable side dishes (sauteed spinach and green beans with tomato) were delectable. Our servers were helpful, well informed and really nice. And despite it being very busy, no one made us feel like we should be moving on even though we lingered and talked for over two and a half hours. All around, a wonderful experience.

For many years this has been my favorite restaurant, & I always return because it is "perfect". So many restaurants disappoint, but never Avra. I'm giving them a 10 & I'M anxious to return soon!

Server was very nice
My friends chicken came out dry so he didnt eat the main course
My tuna tartare was good and the lobster pasta was good

I went to avra a lot in the aummer and for some reasons the food was better - but overall not bad - just for Avras standard Not perfect

The food was fantastic, setting is very pretty. Our server was great too. Only issue was the hostess with an attitude who sat us in the bar despite there being plenty of room in the dining room (yes we were dressed very nice). Great food, nice ambiance, thumbs up!

Outstanding meal, service and ambiance, but very expensive. Their rent must be through the roof, so it was not a shock.

Excellent experience for lovers of Greek food. We were not rushed. Food wait time was not long. Between bread, condiments, appetizers, main course, and dessert, there was always something on the table. Great portions. No one left hungry. Empty plates cleared with no disruption. Everyone in our party of 6 left pleased and satisfied.
