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 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!

Very well run. When you make reservation, they immediately ask if you want inside or outside. Many tables are outside and spaced appropriately. We sat inside and I did note they were very busy, but our table was 6 feet away from others. Excellent restaurant in every category. This was the first restaurant visit we have made in 15 months. It was the best place to go out too. And all staffed were masked.

I absolutely love everything about this place. Visited the city a few years ago (pre COVID) and some friends invited me here and I loved it so much that on my return visit with my daughter on her first trip to the city, it was a must and it certainly didn’t disappoint! Highly recommend and strongly suggest making a reservation:)

Ate there for dinner Sat night and sat outdoors. The setup is beautiful but we were only 2 people and we had to sit at a table on the sidewalk that had no coverage or heaters. Would have liked to have known that before. It looked like most if not all the covered seating was for more than 2 people. Otherwise food was delicious as always and service was excellent.

We’ve been coming here for lunch and we love the place and the ambiance. We ordered the octopus, meatballs and the Chilean sea bass for appetizers it’s was delicious. For main I ordered the branzino it was nicely deboned and my friends ordered the lamb chaps, sword fish and they were all delish :) would definitely come back here again and again. The waiter and management are all very nice. The only problem is the parking will cost you more than your whole lunch :))) lmaooo

I normally love Avra. However, I went this Saturday night and I was really saddened by a truly disappointing experience. My first course, Octopus, came luke warm and so salty that I could not eat it. I sent it back with the restaurant's manager who was kind enough to replace it with the grilled calamari. Unfortunately the calamari did not arrive until after we ate our dinner so we sent it back. We explained to our waiter that since we were both having appetizers, that we would split the Branzino. He advised us to get the 2 pound Branzino, but never told us that the cost for the two pound is over $100. We ordered two drinks each and they were 80.00 for very small pours. Overall, the service was average, the food is good but so overpriced and I left hungry since I never got my appetizer. For a $275.00 dinner for two (with tip), it was a bad experience.

Our first time! We loved the ambiance and stunning decor upstairs and down. The lower level is exquisite. We ordered 5 appetizers to try (4 of us) and every one was outstanding. Dinners were excellent. We were so pleased, and our server (Elenna - sorry if misspelling!) was a delight!

The Beautiful floral outdoor setting with tenting and curtains takes you to a breathtaking outdoor escape. The food and service are impeccable. Worth the price tag. We ate Branzino, Greek salad, and vegetables and dessert was the traditional bacalava with ice cream. A very memorable dinner!
