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 cool city vibe is what I like about this restaurant. Drinks are very good. We ordered the appetizers which were sublime. This is one of my favorite places to eat when dining with large group of friends. The decor is lovely. A bit pricy but it’s worth the experience. So far it’s my third time and it will not be the last. The zucchini chips are very addictive.

We had a lovely evening with a group of friends. I rated the noise for the lower level, which is where we ate and which was much better for conversation than the noisier upstairs.

The food is outstanding, the service is A+, the vibe is busy and trendy, front of house staff is wonderful. But $1000 is waaaaaay too much for six people for dinner here— we shared chips, greek salad, and a dip trio first, then shared a fish (we each got a 4” x 4” piece), jumbo shrimp (we each got one, butterflied), and three tiny lamb chops total (rib, not loin). On the side was one quartered potato, roasted, a small dish of spinach, and a small dish of rice. Note that none of the apps or entrees were “upsized” for sharing. We shared two small desserts (a small cube of baklava and a slice of
Olive oil cake) and each had one cocktail plus a beer. You tell ME if you think $1k is expensive for that.

From the moment I walk in I'm home. It's my favorite restaurant. Prix Fixe lunch for $29.99 of that standard, in those surroundings? Impossible to find anywhere in NYC.

Llegamos a la hora de la reserva , nos hicieron esperar una hora y nos sentaron en el piso de abajo , 0 ambiente en un cuarto apartado de todo el restaurante, siempre comí rico , pero ese día estuvo regular la comida , por ahora no me provoca regresar .

Great polipo and Greek salad. The fish was under cooked, but desert was complimentary. Downstairs sitting is OK, but not as hip as upstairs. Service was ok.

Avra is my favorite greek restaurant been to both the E60 off Madison and E48th off 3rd. Love both. 48th more rustic plus patio. E60 more space. E60s seems more expensive, touch pretentious, less crowded, better service.

Indifferent service, noisy surroundings and mediocre food. Dirty dishes and left over food from a nearby large table were piled right near our table which was very unpleasant.

Food and service was excellent. Just know when you book on “open table” you do not get a good table. New were right near the entrance and bar. This has happened too often.

Ate downstairs.The holiday decor was the prettiest that I've seen in NY.
The greek salad for 3 is excellent and my grilled shrimp with broccoli rabe was perfect.Love the flat breads with oil and herbs

The best fish I have ever had in my life the place is a great surrounding the decor is amazing the bar is a great place to sit and enjoy a few drinks before or after dinner and the amazing display of fresh fish on ice to choose your special dinner which is not on the regular menu is also amazing. I would highly recommend Avra if your a fish eater and don’t miss the grilled octopus it melts in your mouth.
