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 one of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan for both business and pleasure. The lunch prices fix is the best in Manhattan.

Even with a reservation, the table was late. We were given one table in the middle of the crowd waiting for their table. I was nudged the whole dinner. Uncomfortable. Noisy. Good food, but I’ll rethink if I ever return there

If you have a guest(s) you want to impressed, you'll be wowed by the atmosphere and decor. Excellent food, especially the seafood, though not a truly Greek dining experience. The downstairs is a bit cozier, with the upstairs a bit boisterous, but fun and great energy.

Sergio was amazing!
Our fish meals were wonderful, the cocktails were ok.
The noice level was not energetic it was conversation inhibiting, this was at 5:30 PM on a Thursday.

Very nice restaurant with great ambience and people watching. The service was attentive, but at times lacking. Shrimp dish was not good, but was replaced without an issue.
NY hype, but in a good way.

Comimos un pulpo que había sido cortado en rebanadas varias horas antes (o días) y recalentado varias veces con un acompañamiento de cebolla malo e incompatible. El segundo fue una preparación de pescado que olía espantosamente y debimos cambiar de plato por otro de carnes desabridas y duras. Además, unos camarones que tienen el privilegio de ser los peores que comí no solo en USA (es muy difícil comer malos camarones en USA) sino en el mundo. Un horror. Lo que se veía en otras mesas no aparentaba bien. Pese a ello, el lugar es muy concurrido lo que prueba que los miles de millones de moscas son un ejemplo también muy popular y numeroso y comen algo similar a lo que se come en Avra. Manténgase lejos de este lugar. Es tóxico (en serio, pueden envenenarlo; de hecho mi descompostura duró dos días).

My first visit was to attend a private dinner. I knew instantly (and many of the other attendees) that I would be back. I chose AVRA to celebrate my 50th Birthday dinner and it was just as amazing!
I love the atmosphere and the service is outstanding. The appetizers: grilled shrimp, calamari and sea bass skewers are sooo yummy! I had the grilled Bronzino, sautéed spinach and you have to have the truffle fries, even if you're just going to eat a few. I can't wait to go back and try something else, but I am a creature of habit and will probably order the same thing again lol! Avra is definitely one of my new fave restaurants.

The meal was good but definetely overpriced. The front door ladies were extremely unfriendly. They saw that we had strollers and had hard time opening the door. They ignored and didn‘t help us at all. After we asked whether they have high chairs, they were very irritated.

We ate downstairs and initially upon descending the stairs I was disappointed, UPM being seated , I realized it was a more intimate quiet setting then the upstairs dining room. We were exceptionally pleased !

We had a very nice booth - but had a rude waiter who didn't give us the brunch menu - only the expensive one. I found out later that there IS A BRUNCH MENU from 11 to 4 p.m. Our reservation was for one p.m.
Waiter should have definitely offered ud the brunch menu. I didn't like him - he hovered and constrantly tried to push more food on us.
Next time i am in the area I will vcome in and complain about him.
Thanks.
