“Best Greek Food in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

Avra in midtown Manhattan is a very well established restaurant in NYC. It never disappoints. The food is fresh, reliable and consistent. The service is excellent. Recommend the mixed appetizers Greek style: fava beans, Greek salad, fried Zuchini. For mail course go with one of the fish on display.

“Midtown classic for lunch or Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Midtown classic for lunch or Dinner. We hit this place whenever we need a go to spot for a nice lunch or easy early dinner. It can get crowded later. Sit outside and enjoy NYC.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Good greek option with all those interesting seasonings. The fish was very fresh and cooked as ordered. Got a good table on a Sunday night with no reservations. Some plates were a little salty. Will go back for sure.

“Fishy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

There's no excuse for fish that is filleted by a purported expert in a restaurant that prides itself in serving fish to be served bones and scales with the fish. Turned me off completely. I'd rather go to Milo's, pay just a little more and get better, more professional service.

“OK food; poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Avra is a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant in Midtown. I have dined here twice, the second time a few days ago. It is fairly upscale and the food is good but not great. The service was quite poor, especially for an experience that was not inexpensive. Our waiter was not around very much, even though we had an early dinner before the restaurant became crowded. The tables are crowded together as well. I would not recommend this restaurant.
