    Overpriced

    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.

    Delicious and fresh

    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

    Not Recommended

    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.

    What a rebound!

    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

    What a disappointment!

    Until this experience, my family and I had been long time customers of Avra. In this case, I had called in an order to be picked up. When I arrived, I told the young lady at the hostess stand that I was there to pick up an order. She showed me the detailed check, and I immediately noticed that the Lamb dish I had ordered was $8 higher than what was advertised on the official Avra webiste. I politely mentioned this to her, and she then shared this error with one of the managers that was present at the time. This gentlemen was very apologetic, but did not offer to honor the price quoted on the official Avra webiste. I have been in the Hospitality Industry for 20 years, and he should have honored the official website price. What I found more offensive than that, was when the second manager came to me with the final C.C slip to sign, his demeanor gave me the impression that he did not approve of me. To top off this disappointing experience, the food was sub-par, and not a good value what so ever!

    Overpriced

    Average greek food so expensive that it seems that all the customers are from UN or the consulates... I guess I was the only one who paid the food myself.

    mmmmm mmmm delicious

    When we go there the place was packed. We found out fast why...as the food is yummie..try it out. Went there for lunch with the girls. It's on the pricey side for lunch but worthy it ..totally. From appetizer to desert..we couldn't stop enjoying the food. Try their SPANAKOPITA, KOLOKITHI ,MANITARI ,KOTOPOULO, the Galactobourico and the Fig icecream....Mmmmmmmmm delicious
