We arrived in the city mid-afternoon and didn't want to starve until our evening gala. Avra has a nice selection of small plates. We enjoyed the haloumi, grilled sardines, and grilled octopus. I took off 1 star only because it took so long to get...More

This restaurant has amazing food and a nice variety. Although it features seafood, there is also plenty for someone like me who does not eat seafood. The service was terrific, the food amazing the crowd was lively. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Hadn't been here for a while, but I wasn't disappointed. Top-notch Greek food. We all had the Bronzino - with no regrets. Good wine list and excellent service. My only complaint was the acoustics. The place was crammed and it was noisy... Too cold to...More

Well prepared and delicious seafood. We enjoyed the octopus appetizer and had the seafood stew while my wife enjoyed the swordfish. We like it so much that we went back later in the week for lunch with friends for an equally pleasant meal.

Felt as if I were back in Greece. Super fresh fish. I had the warm seafood salad, my dining companions had swordfish brochette and lobster ravioli. We were all pleased.

Ripoff! This is a copy of Greek estatorios that are better quality. Trendy, but very mediocre food. If you are spending $100 a person to sit down and have a glass of wine, you will do way better than here

The food is spectacular. The service good. The prices for lunch very reasonable. A bit high for dinner. The best Greek Salad in Manhattan. The atmosphere is pleasant and it is always a jog to dine here.
