    A jug of retsina, a pita and thou....

    The atmosphere is gorgeous - it manages to be warm and social, and yet feels like you're still protected from the street and its noises. The food is delish as well - a nice selection of starters, (if you eat seafood their octopus is wonderful) and a nice glass of wine outdoors on a warm eveing.... Opa opa !

    Excellent service

    While the service was excellent, the portion was small and with no side dish included, it was a poor value.

    Very zen

    We arrived at 6:15 for a drink at the bar and then brought to our table for dinner. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. The hummus, olives and radishes that were complimentary were all good. Appetizers were the grilled sea bass and the grilled octopus. The octopus was great, but the sea bass was still half raw when brought to the table.The main fish courses were light white fish that the waitress picked out and were grilled with olive oil, herbs and lemon..just great. Dessert was the baklavah-yum and we also had the sorbet...very good. All in all a great experience with excellent food. I would go back soon.

    A tourist who enjoys fine food

    Avra restaurant is one of the finest restaurants in NYC. Their crabcakes melt in your mouth. Huge, whole pieces of crabmeat fill your mouth. Avra has come a long way and is here to make its mark on the New York restaurant scene.

    Excellent experience!

    I took my family to Avra earlier this week. I found the restaurant to be very nice. We started with the Kalamarakia and Kolokithia. Both were exceptional. For entrees we tried the Barbounia and Brizola. The fish was outstanding! Cooked to perfection. My son had the steak. It was cooked properly and tastest great. For dessert the Chocolate cake with fig ice cream, Karidopita (walnut cake) and the Galactobourico were outstanding. This was the best meal we had during our week in NYC.

    Nothing Special

    Food is mediocre, and very overpriced. Service is fine, though a bit clumsy. Atmosphere is meant to be in the style of a mahogany speak-easy, but it is too fake, and doesn't manage to pull it off. Octopus was poorly flavored, and only of mediocre quality; hummus was bland; eggplant app was pretty good; swordfish was good, however the vegetable medley side was quite weak, especially for the price… Don’t think I would go back or recommend the place, but I wouldn’t tell someone to never go there. Wine list is fairly comprehensive, though, again, overpriced.

    Good, but can be better

    We went early last Friday night to celebrate, and were given a small table in the middle of the room, even though the place was still relatively empty. When we asked to switch to a larger table, we were told that we could move until a half an hour from then because they "needed it back" for someone else who reserved it, mind you, we also had a reservation, but I guess that table was really off limits! We ended up getting an additional small table moved to make our table larger, which was ok. Otherwise, the food was very good, though pricy for the portions. I believe if they worked on getting their customer service fine tuned, they would be more sucessful. The old Avra, was better though.
