You'd never know there was a recession on--being in this restaurant most evenings. The wait staff is highly professional and bustles around, people with money order seafood platters and big meals, and you feel settled in the NYC vibe. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the freshness of the food, watching the other diners (looked like business execs and families), and soaking in all that is wonderful about NYC. Pricey for us out of towners---but well worth the experience. Thank you!

I visited Avra for dinner with four business colleagues. We just ordered appetizers which were all very good. The wait staff were okay, not great which I expected for such a busy restaurant.

The food at Avra was very fresh and yummy. We had white wine, with a fish by the pound, along with two delicious Cheese filled Appetizers. The Service was impeccable as well.

We were invited to dinner at this restaurant by a friend, who assured us they served great seafood, and they do. The restaurant serves great fish dishes and absolutely out of this world fried calamari. We spent two plus hours having a leisurely dinner and did not feel that we were being hurried to leave. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. The fish and the sides were fresh and well cooked. The food came hot and tasted the way it should. We will certainly go back next time we are in the city.

I visited Avra for dinner in early January 2013 with three business colleagues. We were seated quickly in the back of the restaurant, which was a good location for a business discussion. The service was very good but not very friendly. The food was delicious and simply prepared. We had a selection of dips as appetizer then I had a seafood stew. All the ingredients were good. The shrimp in the stew was overcooked slightly. Coffee after dinner was good also.
