“DELICIOUS FISH & CHARMING ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Went recently for a business dinner. Avra is very charming and homey inside for how large it is. Dinner was at 7:30 and the place was jammed when we arrived. We shared the Greek and Octopus salad, which were fresh and delicious, and our grilled fish dinners were light, fresh and perfectly flavored. A very enjoyable meal at a very enjoyable place. Would definitely recommend and go back.

“Excellent food, especially seafood”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Had a great meal at this midtown upmarket Greek restaurant. I had excellent crab cakes that were nearly pure crab. For mains I had tuna which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Nice wine selection at reasonable prices. Attentive service.

The restaurant is larger than you think fro the front, as it goes back a long way. Very nice décor and tables not too close together.

Very busy so do book.

“Delicious meal”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Last night we enjoyed a delicious meal-- the zucchini chip appetizer is fantastic, the Greek salad is super fresh and the spanakopita was excellent. I've eaten at Avra many times and the service is always prompt and friendly.

“Usually not bad”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Good expensive Greek restaurant in Midtown with amazing choice of seafood, preliminary reservation required cause the place is very popular and there is no way to get table from 6 - 9 pm without reservation.

We had a great meal here last weekend. The food was fresh and perfectly seasoned and the service was excellent. The calamari was outstanding. The salads are wonderful and the seafood is very fresh. The menu has a big selection with something for everyone.
