Avli is a superb local establishment where the food, service and friendliness are reliably excellent. The indoor and well as patio dining are most welcoming.

Met friends for a late lunch and was asking myself why I hadn't been there before. The food selections were many and the waiter was attentive without being overbearing. We were all pleased with out selections - lamb burger, salad, and spread sampler. I am looking forward to trying with my family for a dinner.

Friday late dinner made us hungry for Greek so we elect local Avli. Packed, but got squeezed in and found Nikki, a great waiter who knew his wines well, took our orders and served us a simple but delicious whitefish in lemon-olive oil and capers sauce with lemon potato side. A very nice meal to end a rainy day.

Very good and reasonably priced Greek food. Very nice to sit outside if the weather is correct. Sausage appetizer and gyros are particularly good.

I love to go to Avli in the summer ! The Terrace in the back is great and secluded from the street. The food is terrific and the service is great! I will continue to visit them in the summer mostly. I occasionally go in the winter because I do like the food!

We have been to this restaurant twice before dining there last night with friends. We won't be back. The food was very average, nothing special. There are a lot of Greek restaurants in the area with much better food. But the service was terrible. From the moment we sat down, we felt like we were imposing on the waiter to... More

This was a find. The food was delicious and authentic. Everyone loved what they ordered and all wanted a taste of the yogurt mousse for dessert. The restaurant is very nice and strikes the right balance of elegance without formality. You will enjoy Avli. It is a busy place, so make a reservation.

Great atmosphere. Compared to other restaurants in area - less wait at popular times and often no wait. Lamb burgers and zucchini chips are amazing. Best outdoor seating - huge and can be covered and heated when chilly. We go often.

Great food and service. One of our neighborhood favorites - accommodating and consistent. Food is always good. Noisy in places, but they let us keep our table and carry on our conversations.
