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.

This is my second visit to Avra and it was so different from my first. We were seated downstairs this time and I think made all the difference. There no ambiance down there. I’m not sure, but looks like it’s an event space that they added tables to in order to increase the number of tables they could seat. In fact, half of the space was draped off and a party was going on behind it. Food and service were great but nothing special about the dining room.

If one makes a reservation on should be able to get what one wants. Reservations do this magic. Otherwise first come in should be applied and one goes to another place where a table is assured to be available

The waiters were rushing us and clearing the plates before everyone at the table was finished. That is what is expected at a diner, not a fine restaurant.

Jorge went above and beyond to make our meal experience superb! After being told that they ran out of my favorite shrimp cocktail, Jorge was able to ask the chef to make it for us . This kind of service deserves appreciation and feedback. The food and staff is amazing but Jorge totally made our night and we are so grateful for that.

Very disappointed with this visit! Been once before and loved it. It is no doubt a hotspot. The wine was a decent selection. The tuna tartare was ok. The zucchini chips were not crispy. Lima beans were made with too much tomato sauce. My fish was cold and I sent it back, I asked for it to be chargrilled and it was not, however, what did it for me, is they warmed up the same fish and brought me back a hot plate, only warming it up in the broiler. A big no-no! Truffle fries were cold. We had to ask after 40 min where our main meal was. I think they left it and seeing it was busy they forgot us. The olive cake was amazing and fresh and the sorbet non diary was really good too!

Avra is one of my go-to places - has been for years. Usually the staff is extremely attentive and friendly. Today we experienced a real lack of attention, despite repeated efforts otherwise.

This was our first visit to Avra and we completely enjoyed everything. The staff made sure to accommodate us for a specific table we had requested, and we always really appreciate when that happens.
The food was wonderful. They automatically place a hummus, olive and radish sampler with toasted pita on the table .We had the grilled octopus and the special soft shell crab to start, we loved both.
Our entrees were the Chilean sea bass and the Tuna(both tasty and cooked to perfection).
We also ordered the grilled vegetables. Honestly we could have gotten away with not ordering the veggies because our dinner portions were hearty.
Everything was fresh and flavorful, we will be back for sure!
