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.

I love mostly everything about Avra except the crowds it draws — makes it hard to get a table. But for good reasons: the mgr always accommodates unique requests, the food is great, and the wait staff exceptional. I always return to Avra when in NY.

Always surprised at how snooty and rude the hostess is. Spoils the experience. Food was great. Our waiter seemed distracted. more interested in big tables.

Food was delicious. The octopus was amazing. Fish was fresh and tasty. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and located in a great neighborhood. It was a 3 minute walk to the train station and two blocks from Central Park. Service was good but the wait staff could be more attentive.

Why would you take reservations at a time in which the people at the restaurant don’t want to work anymore???

Always love this place. Fabulous vibe, food and drink. Trendy and delicious. Hamachi starter and the Branzino and Fagri are out of this world. Evan, our waiter, was excellent, polite, and my girlfriend and I really enjoyed the evening.

We were stuck behind the fish on ice table directly outside a room apparently reserved for screaming infants and the caregivers. The couscous was dry and the dorade was overlooked. A lady in some managerial position rounded the dining room every 15 minutes and interrupted our table’s conversation to ask “how’s everything?” as she walked past. Not a good atmosphere for our reunion with an old friend.

Ordered the fish of the day with artichoke mushroom string bean medley, but it arrived without artichoke or potatoes. String beans were awful and overcooked. Asked the waiver and he said they ran. Greek salad was good, though Spanokopita was small and disappointing. Complementary pita bread was overly toasted.

This is a really special and beautiful place. The service was spot on, and the meal delicious. We ordered bronzino, and I don't think there was a bite left on anyone's plate. Can't wait to go back.

The price fix lunch was amazing. It was hard to choose from the many choices and my daughter and I loved everything from the dairy-free butternut squash soup, Chilean sea bass skewers , beet infused mashed potatoes and delectable fish.
Our server , Rashida, was so sweet and personable and made excellent suggestions.
A nice touch is when the manager checked in at each table to make sure everything was going well. The room is lovely and our request for a window table was fulfilled.
It was a lovely mother-daughter lunch.
Avra is definitely my go-to place in a city of thousands of choices!

With my reservation, I had to wait until something opened up. They are very busy. Love the energy and atmosphere. I go there often, and went with a good friend, that I am a long time client of. Food was excellent, as always. Too many busboys standing around. Very difficult to get the waiter’s attention. Overall, one of my favorite lunch venues.
