Amazing experience during Covid. Staff was patient and lovely
Excellent food and service. They have done a great job in setting up the outside tables.
Great food for both lunch and dinner and awesome outdoor seating in courtyard.
Wonderful lunch outside. Tables well spaced. Attentive service. Well paced meal of excellent food.
Great place with open outdoor space for feeling safe in these times. Food was delicious,
with good selections. Service was attentive and prompt. Will definitely be back!
Disappointed they weren't offering the evening prix fixe as indicated on their website and OpenTable. Very good food and excellent service.
The Branzino was delicious as usual.
A couple of weeks ago excellent Swordfish. One of the few outdoor restaurants that actually adhere to social distancing. Always excellent service. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. She was really nice. Very pleasant atmosphere👍 Be back soon!
Outstanding service and food! Every dish is exceptional and the staff is incredibly helpful and honest with the menu.
Great outdoor seating during covid!! Would recommend.
A great outdoor space, and perfect service for lunch--respecting social distancing and making it a comfortable experience (our first time eating out in 6 months).
Wait staff service all good
Our lunch (field greens; calamari; Prosecco cappuccino) was fresh & delicious — perfectly dressed, seasoned & prepared. We’d say that the calamari was the best that we’ve eaten. Our masked waiter & other servers were attentive & accommodating. The tables are placed properly for social distancing so that we felt comfortable & enjoyed a relaxing lunch in the outdoor patio. Highly recommend.
By far the best value in mid town.. food is a 8.5 at least.. price fix life lunch is best deal around. I go here 3/6 times a month.. just speciall
Still wonderful...beautiful outside dining that feels very private. Food is just wonderful
This is a great place for outdoor dining! Service is terrific and food was very good.
However we expected Brunch as their website specifies. But they decided not to serve
brunch until the pandemic is done!
So while everything was very good, we were disappointed.
4 of us celebrating my moms birthday. We had a nice table on the terrace . Service was very good. The food was bit inconsistent. Branzino was delicious but The halibut was overcooked.
Love this place! And the outdoor dining offering is a plus in a time of pandemic! Lots of open space away from the street. And the food, as always, is superb. I’ll be back!
So far the best place to have outdoor dinner :)
Excellent outdoor seating availability and excellent food
We like the service and fresh fish.
Outside socially distant dining and its most gracious and delicious
The staff is amazing especially during this situation.
The setup is wonderful. You feel safe and protected as well as feeling you are actually outdoors somewhere
The patio was filled with customers, among properly-distanced tables. Fortunately, this location already maintained a patio which has HEAT lamps (like Europe). The lamps turn on automatically in the early evening. Our waiter the octopus appetizer; tomato salad; fish soup of the day. Everything was fresh & delicious. We also enjoyed our desserts. Relaxing. Good to eat out in the city again! Highly recommend!
I gave Avra an outstanding for ambience (as well as everything else). Indoor dining is still not allowed in NYC but they did a good job outside. It was not their fault that the street was being torn up right in front of the restaurant. But there are tables outside in the back. I recommend sitting there (as we did). Our waiter apologized for the noise but frankly, the food, the service, and the general happiness quotient (all the diners seemed happy, nice to see happy these days) were great. Warning - portions are HUGE. I had the branzino, which was beautiful and delicious and bone-free.
Always delicious and the Tomato Salad and Branzino never disappoint!
In a time of Covid, Avra knows how to do outdoor dining because it has always had a large spacious, outdoor area. For a night it almost felt as if things were normal, but for all the masks and an empty interior. Pricy but the food is excellent. I would come back just for the Avra chips (paper-thin sliced, fried zucchini and eggplant with tzatziki dip) and a cocktail, but the fish was great. I had a meaty, perfectly cooked halibut. Polite, professional service.
I found the service to by abysmal. Aside from our waitress who was wonderful/cheerful, the hostess, and bus-boys were quite rude. We were served a plate that had clearly had food on it (it was dirtier than any plate I've ever received at a restaurant) - which is appalling given the current situation. The hostess would not seat us until the entire party arrived which makes zero sense - do you want us to wait on the sidewalk and loiter in the vicinity of other customers who are eating?? Why still have this rule when we're all supposed to be distancing as much as possible. Is it really that difficult to seat us prior, particularly when a 2hr rule is applied to tables? The onus is on us to leave at the designated time, the least you can do is seat us versus make us wait on the sidewalk.
Great ambiance with large outdoor terrace, so was able to maintain distance and well isolated from the street. The wine selection was great, the food was wonderful and service was attentive.. A bit more subdued than before the virus, but still vibrant enough the make it interesting...
We had a lovely time dining outside at Avra. Friendly and attentive service, with good food and drinks. Will return!
Always top notch. Just wish their $$ was more in line with other Greeks restaurants. $20 for zucchini chips lik much..
The ambiance was made by a beautiful lady DJ 🥰😍
Everything was great.
I ordered Chilean sea bass.
They did it on the grill and killed it.
The food was delicious and the outdoor seats were wonderful. Unfortunately, the service was not good.
Perfect every time
Treated very special on our 64th!
It was our anniversary Service was great. We were properly spaced outside. Food always very good . Staff was masked and gloved!
The best Greek restaurant in the city! Everything was delicious! The service was great and environment of outside seating was incredible
Great outdoor space in covid times. Great service and food
