We had a late dinner in this very fashionable, bustling NYC restaurant. Incredible seafood display in back dining room. The food was delicious, but the tables were too close and the noise level high.

Really good food in a cozy atmosphere. It was full at lunch but service was still very good. A less expensive less trendy alternative to Milos.

Very loud and the server was a little too cool for my liking but the food was good. Limited menu for a picky vegitarian but the Greek salad is amazing (when they say the tomatoes are amazing, you need to believe them). Fun if you don't plan on trying to have a conversation and a definate for those who love FISH.

We had not made plans for dinner on a Sunday in NYC. We found Avra Estiatorio just around the corner from our hotel. What a great discovery. The food was great. The service was all we could ask. We will visit Avra Estiatorio each time we return to NYC.

I don't like Greek food and this gave so much variety and was fabulous. It is not fancy, but homy and comfortable. We look forward to coming back in the summer and eating in the outdoor courtyard.
