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.

One of my favorite spots in NYC but this time I was slightly disappointed. The halibut was dry and side dishes were too salty. Also the service was attentive but on a rushing side. Looked like they wanted us out ASAP. Really hope that the kitchen will cut on salt.

All great Congratulations for keeping the high level,
the lower level dinning area might need some work, it doesn't reflect the ambience of the main level, it is sad, dark and not fun, I requested to change my table to main floor and it looks like 2 separate restaurants

Everything was great with the food and service, and it's a beautiful spot. It did, however, get very noisy.

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!
