    An upscale Greek seafood restaurant, serving fresh fish by the pound! We adore how the decor resembles that of a villa, along with the beautiful outdoor seating. Get the Arctic Char for your entre!

    Avra has some good homemade classics, but the focus is on an extensive menu of fresh seafood that ranges from octopus to jumbo shrimp to swordfish and the unusual grilled sardines. Read more

    I got the dish of shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in tomato and orzo. It was excellent, but next time I would do a whole fish dish. The mountain greens as a side was incredible.

    The fish was very fresh and delicious . I recommend the zucchini chips and the octopus. The staff was very helpful and got my food quickly. Best Greek food I have tasted in the city by far.

    Amazing food. Try the lagostine and the fresh fish. The starters are fantastic. The hummus, olives, and bread are enough to fill your appetite, and it only gets better from there.

    very good, the fish was super fresh and served perfectly. We were there last night (Thursday evening) Only problem, very noisy, and it was packed, not an empty table. Hard to have a conversation.

    Oh my word. The fish was light, fresh, and cooked perfectly. They did a sub par job of de-boning it though. Get the mountain green side...perfection. Service wasn't stellar though.

    Zucchini/eggplant chips & the octopus appe, great! Plaki seabass was amazing, swordfish also delightful. Baklava and walnut cake AMAZING! Baklava wasnt too sweet and was big on the pistachios, yum!

    I love this place but I don't eat seafood. The gigantes beans are great, the zucchini chips and the chicken entree.

    Awesome fresh upscale Greek. All the fish is superb (especially the Char) but beware of market prices. Ask the price per lb. It's ok. Must try the zucchini chips. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    One of the finest Greek restaurants in NY! Crab cake is extraordinary, the Daurade is fabulous, anything you have will for sure be excellent!!!

    Amazing Greek food is not an easy thing to come by, but from your first moments in Avra you will know you found a winner. The charcoal-grilled octopus was excellent, and the fig ice cream for dessert

    Beautiful place, great food - must try the fresh fish. To start, try the octopus, tomato salad and a glass of Greek white wine.

    Hortas (steamed wild greens) and a well prepared peice of fresh fish makes for a perfect light meal. I will definitely be coming back

    Great outdoor dining. I have only had lunch and dinner before. Today the brunch. Lovely food with one drink included. Jazz group set up later and it did not interfere with conversation or ambience.

    Add ons to salads such as shrimp or chicken are billed as appetizers on the Dinner Menu. Lunch Menu is more salad add-on friendly!

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO tasty authentic Greek. Get the Haloumi, Greek salad, and Bifteki Souvlaki. I'm sure everything here is good though! And loved the bread basket.

    Simple Greek food done right. Don't come here without trying the fresh fish by the pound. We recommend the Tsipoura, Lavraki, and Fagri.

    Mostly the food was good but calamari was very bad. We couldn’t eat it. And the waiter was pouring wine like pouring water. It was a big failure.
