“Not Your Average Greek Restaurant”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Neither my husband nor I particularly care for Greek food. Actually we usually avoid it! However, we trusted the good taste of our friends and we were not sorry. The menu offers a great variety of fresh fish choices (the fresh fish is actually on display), prepared in a cosmopolitan style that was NOT reminiscent of eating food wrapped in figleaves. We were with two other couples and all ordered from the Prix Fix menu. An excellent choice that I would heartily recommend. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. We'll probably go back there at some point!

“Outstanding service, NYC vibe and great food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

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!

“Good Food and Ambience”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

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.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

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.
