First the good news... Our server was attentive and patient while we spent the first 15 minutes just talking and not even looking at the menu. He periodically came by to check on us but didn't pressure us at all to make a decision. The not so good news... You will not get away with dinner for ONE person for... More

We ate dinner at Avra and it was very good. The only negative was that our waiter (older gentleman) was a little rude when we weren't ready to order our drinks the minute we sat down and then he wasn't very attentive. Other than that, we had a great time and all the other servers were wonderful. I noticed the... More

I can never have enough of this marvelous restaurant. Its dishes are exceptionally delicious, and I just never tire of them. From the appetizers, my favourites include the salads, the grilled octopus, haloumi, sardines, and the seabass souvlaki. The various options of grilled fish varieties offered as a main course are fresh, expertly seasoned and invariably delicious. They have a... More

One of our favorites. Always awesome. Staff was great and food was sooooooo good. If you enjoy authentic Greek food and can't make it to Greece you have to stop here. Thanks a great evening!!!

The evening started badly as we were seated at a table in the center of the room, in the midst of "traffic" going to and from the kitchen. But that was probably my fault for not demanding to be moved. We ordered drinks, which arrived quickly with a basket of bread. We each had a salad appetizer - nothing special.... More

I have been to Avra many times. However this time I felt a slight decrease in the level of the food I am commensurate with that was the increase in prices, which I do not feel were justified.

We had a wonderful meal, but really overpriced. A salad was $15-18. And it wasn't the size of salad that would make a meal. Hummus was brought out complementary with bread, along with olives and radishes. Our main courses were delicious, but they won't give you a portion of fish less than a pound, and no way could I eat... More

The selection of fish is incredible. There are dozens of fresh fish on ice (you can just tell they were swimming that morning). The staff will explain everything you need to know about the fish you pick out. They charge by the pound. The prawns were some of the biggest I've ever seen and grilled to perfection. Not a fish...

They know their strengths. Waiter recommended two 1 lb fish entrees and he was right. Cooked beautifully and nicely presented. Service is gracious without being overbearing. Price is ok for fresh fish in Manhattan. Like Arnold said "I'll be back"

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
