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.

We chose Avra for our 7th anniversary. It took 20 minutes to reach the hostess stand. The place was chaotic. Too busy, way too noisy. The staff was overwhelmed. Thank God the food was excellent. I probably chose the wrong place for that special occasion.

We always make dining at Avra a top priority when in NYC. Glynna is the perfect manager. Always enjoy seeing her when we visit. Great food, great location!

A master class in poor service. From the hostess starting with “is your party all here? Yes, well you’ll have to wait” to absent waiters who couldn’t be bothered to take drink orders, offer specials or even visit the table regularly Avra stuns with its tone-deaf service. A 20 minute wait was followed by deafening silence and a waiter who couldn’t remember what bottle of wine was ordered or bring the wine to the table until well after the first course arrived. At $150 per person one might expect a bit more attention but that is apparently reserved only for loud, boisterous groups at large tables. The food is eerily reminiscent of Milos which does everything better, from food to service to decor. It is a shame that Avra makes it so unpleasant to visit as the food is quite good and the location convenient but sadly there is not enough control over the dining room to run this oversized restaurant at a level commensurate with the prices. The crowd makes for some interesting people watching - if one wished to tackle egregious corporate expense account spending Avra would be an excellent place to start looking for chief offenders.

Although we had a confirmed reservation, we waited perhaps 15 minutes for our table. It is a busy holiday time and a polular restaurant -- but we had to ask several times to be seated.

Waiter and the staff was so nice. The phone at the hostess stand kept ringing and that was annoying. Please lower the volume or get a light activated phone.
Thank you

Very good restaurant with a nice and cosy ambience and food well prepared and presented. The service was polite but some how disoganized. No couvert was brougjt toma table and I had to request the dessert menu to one of the young ladies that wellcome guest.

Always a great dinner and the service was impeccable as usual. They did a great job of accommodating our schedule as we were late due to a meeting delay.

I eat here quite often and the food is very good. Unfortunately today that was not the case..tuna tartare and crabmeat appetizers were very good. The main courses, swordfish and Dorado were not very good..we will go back and try again

The ambiance is great, an upscale place to dine. The food is mediocre not worth it for the money. Much better restaurants out there. If you want to go just for the ambiance go for it if you want good food skip it.

Took my husband out for dinner for his birthday November 25th. For appetizers we had the Crab Cake” and the Grilled Octopus” and it was absolutely amazing. Avra was definitely the best choice. Thank you.

Food outstanding! Table service perfect! Hostess not so much. A shame to have such a great quality restaurant and to receive such rude attitude and response from the hostess. And it wasn't just to our party, but to everyone else waiting at the same time. This kind of too cool for anyone attitude is a yesterday event in New York. Customers expect better, and especially when paying an average of $100 per head at minimum. Management should pay attention, this is not the Avra Way.
