Food was good, we where seated in the back part of the Restaurant, and at the end of our lunch we requested for a different table, the noise level was so bad that made it impossible to carry a conversation. Service was very good.

I have been to Avra several times and each time I find I enjoy it more and more. Although this restaurant is a bit pricey I think the food, decor and service are definitely worth it. Great ambiance and they even have outdoor seating for those cool summer nites or warm fall evenings. The seafood is outstanding and very fresh.... More

The menu is outstanding. Four different types of snapper. Great service and reasonably priced wine list. Be sure to walk around and view the fresh fish on display. The baklava was the best we have ever had.

We needeed a quick lunch but wanted something good (no Hale and Hearty) and since I was travelling with a Greek individual, we ate at Avra. We did the prix fixe menu which was great - had the tomato salad which was fantastic and then Red Snapper. Food was fantastic and service was great. Will definitely go back.

We were there this week for a business dinner and what an amazing meal. The service was top notch and the food was unbelievable. We had several appetizers and side dishes that were perfectly prepared. The star of the show however was the extraordinarily fresh fish we had for our main course. The American Snapper was perfectly sweet...just delicious. Overall... More

Menu features a lot of seafood, but many other options. Greek at its finest. Everything was absolutely outstanding. Try the zucchini chips - delicious! Good service.

One never tires of the choice of excellent food in NYC. On the recommendation of a friend who lives in the neighborhood, we visited Avra on a Tuesday night without a reservation. We were graciously received and served dinners of Chilean Sea Bass that were among the best we've had in town. We'll be back!

Had the opportunity to have lunch here and jumped at it since it had been a while. Not disappointed. From the opening bread, olives and tahini-ish spread to the tenderest calamari to the souvlaki, it was superb. And since it was late summer, we had the opportunity to enjoy the big open windows. One thing-while it's nice to not be... More
