Went to celebrate our 25 year Wedding Anniversary and it was not such a good choice especially for the money we spent. Our fish was served to us late and by the time it got to our table it was cold, not warm but cold . Told the waiter he offered to bring it back to warm it up but we just did not trust sending it back. Have been to Avra some years back and had enjoyed it tht is why I told my husband I wanted to go back there to celebrate our special day , but I was wrong. Unfortunately very overpriced which I did not mind but when the food is cold then you do mind and very much!! Too bad always had fond memories of this establishment but after last night won't be visiting again any time soon.

From the minute I called for a reservation to celebrate my niece's upcoming wedding - the staff at Avra couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful, quiet table for 14 in the back of the main room and Avra staff made us feel right at home! The champagne brunch was delicious and beautifully served with a great selection of different items. Additionally, it was very reasonably priced. The whole meal felt fun and festive. Thank you to everyone at Avra, for helping make this such a special day!

We were pleased with Avra and will go there again. The food is well prepared and tasty. They use pure virgin olive oil. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service friendly and attentive.

Overpriced is an understatement! 4 of us for Sunday brunch avoided the highest priced items and lived to tell this tale. We shared brunch portions of: Greek salad with chicken ($20+), calamari ($16), spanakopita ($15), octopus ($25), lamb souvlaki ($20), grilled veggies ($13). Two teas, a Coke and coffee and our bill before tax and tip was around $140+. The salad was the best of the lot, both in taste and size. Calamari was OK, not exactly crispy (but not soggy), small portion, and came with a green dip and the usual red sauce—both very plain. The spinach pie was small and so-so. The octopus looked charred but did not taste grilled. The souvlaki was bland and the tzatziki did not have any garlic or cucumber flavor? There were no onions or veggies on the skewer (2), instead it was served with fries (rice not an option) and a tiny salad. Grilled veggies were good but skimpy. Service was attentive and efficient (with refilling water, clearing plates, check, etc.) Roomy enough, cheerful décor and rustic bathroom. The prices were probably on par with restaurants in that locale but I have to think the food might be better elsewhere.

One of the best Greek seafood restaurants in the city. The food is fresh and made with great flavor. The whole fish is made to perfection. The restaurant is lively and fun. Great for groups or just a romantic dinner for two. A must go

we were 8 on a Friday night. service is very slow. we opened a bottle of wine at the bar just before sitting it took them close to 15 min to bring the wine to our table. Overpriced and close to mediocre food. If you want fish go where the fish is fresh and priced right, go elsewhere.

Had a friend in town who needed to stick to the caveman diet. Hadn't been here in a long time. Had a 7:45 reservation. Place was crazy crowded and was ready to walk out by 8:10. Table then appeared and the rest of the night was fantastic. Crab cake with high % of crab; grilled octopus with onions, capers, vineger all grilled, and grilled shrimp with olive oil and parsley for starters. Grilled Med fish with lemon and capers - superb. Fruit for desert - fresh. But for the wait and the bill being somewhat pricey, a fantastic dining experience. Ally's Dad
