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.

Food was Sub-par. the grilled prawns were overdone and the meat stuck to the shell, therefore no meat! very expensive for Prawns with no meat. nothing was done about it, no manager saying sorry, no-one offered to remake them or anything. very disappointed. forgot then sides, then came out cold. overcharged for dessert. waiter was nice. Lousy customer service. the front desk girl was SUPER Sweet!! she was the best part of the restaurant.

Each visit further suggests Avra Madison is the best value Manhattan spot for lunch. The extensive choices with very few, albeit quite chere supplements($12 for an octopus starter, $16 for lamb chops), the generosity with olives, radishes and hummus with pita bread are a major reason for my rating. The very high quality of all ingredients, down to the tiny capers in a swordfish entree, are evidence of caring. Imaginably plated, perfectly prepared, generously portioned and well served make it difficult to contain one's enthusiasm. I only wish the fish of the day wasn't almost always bronzino, which is already one of the entree choices, and an occasional daurade. Winer prices offer no bargains, but where can you find them in NY? If this sounds like an infomercial, all I can say is go and see for yourself.

The food is as usual, absolutely delicious and the service is excellent and very attentive.
We’ve been coming to Avra for quite some time now especially for their valuable and affordable lunch special!Just noticed that, almost any item you order from their lunch special menu, has an extra added charge to it which defeats the whole idea of a “special” :(

This is by far my favorite restaurant in New York City. The staff is wonderful, the food is always always always fresh and well prepared. Although I miss indoor dining, and yes it is available here, I find that the atmosphere they created outdoors is as good as it can be.

Avra's ambiance is enjoyable and a fun place to dine,
You are always well taken care of by the staff and who
attend to your needs. Our favorite Branzio Seabass with perfectly
grilled veggies top off the dinner, and made the night a delight

I love the place and come often with my friends. Never ever had any misunderstandings. But this time our waiter overcharged us and didn’t want to admit his mistake after I mentioned the wrong amount to him. I ordered tuna tartare and lamb chops from pre fixed lunch menu and my friend ordered tuna tartare from the regular menu. At the bill besides our drinks, 29.95$ for prefixed lunch and additional +5$ for tuna tartare (for the same pre fix) I saw 45.50$ charge for lamb chops. Which I mentioned to the waiter. I said that my friend ordered tuna tartare and lamb chops were from pre fix. The answer I received: “lamb chops at pre fix come at additional price”. Which we all know is not true :) I ended up not arguing with him. But for the full price he at least could bring me those delicious potatoes which usually come as a side. And I didn’t get them either. Anyway I love the place. Overall my experience was great. I will keep coming again and again because your food is always delicious. Just a little feed back.

Having had a couple dozen lunches here, with amazing consistency, I believe Avra to be the best lunch spot in Manhattan. Amazing 3 course prix fixe at $29, with numerous choices, very few supplements, a splendid lunch experience. All ingredients first rate, generous portions and exemplary service, particularly the bus staff. Last visit was outside, which I can't recommend. Much more comfor Bravo!table in the handsome dining room.

Avra Madison, E 60th & Madison, serves delectable, gourmet food. It’s reasonably priced, the selection is varied, but I would recommend the fish. We had an appetizer of jumbo grilled calamari that was not only tasty but superior to any calamari that was served to me in Italy. The ambience is charming, and the waiters are not only serviceable, they are also knowledgeable about the menu. Enjoy!

At the beginning I was over looked and not even greeted by the female host wearing blue with a blue laced mask that appeared to be too busy to greet. She also had a bandaid sticking out of her pump that turned my stomach as I realized we are in a food atmosphere . A gentleman stood behind her just looking at me as if I did not belong. Finally I greeted the host because I realized neither he or she would not speak to me, as I was in arms reach. He quickly got a table together for me. As I’m sitting down the waiter comes. I was never offered still, flat or sparking. The assumption was made that I will drink tap. The male waiter never gave me the soup of the day or the fish of the day. I barely got a drink menu until I requested one. As I quietly observed his actions with other tables I noticed he would make his rounds and ask how the food was. Never did we get small gesture of care from the server. It was almost like my guest and I were a nuisance to him. Besides that the food was great as always and I really commend the kitchen for up keeping the quality in food provided during Covid.
It is a great place to eat, but the customer service etiquette needs to be fine tuned a bit.
