Mediterranean
In Greek mythology Avra is the Goddess of the breezes and thus Avra Madison aptly named. Our cuisine, gracious service and Greek Estiatorio inspired decor will invoke warm Mediterranean nights cooled by Avra's gentle sea breezes. Sit back, relax and allow us to transport you to the tranquility of the Mediterranean while you feast on charcoal grilled freshly caught whole fish, sip a glass of white wine from Mykonos and enjoy the company of friends and family.

I ordered the fish soup and the Tuna Tartar. Both were under seasoned and bland. I was surprised by the lackluster dishes as they were expensive appetizers. I enjoyed the olive oil cake and the wine.

Service was great and the ambiance was beautiful. The best part of the restaurant was people watching. I sat near the bar and watched all the beautiful people. I would try the place again and order something different.

The food was the best but the hostess told us we couldn't sit in a seat and forced us by the front door and we froze every time the door opened.

It was a lie and we watched as a single woman sat in one 2 top and another single woman in the other. They just knew nobody would sit next to the freezing door. We ate quickly and left

Lies don't make for good dinner companions and we will eat somewhere else next time.

The vibe, food and overall experience was great. Only gripe is that we were sat right behind a service station and close to the front desk. The restaurant is beautiful and there is alot to look at , just wish we were sat at a better table.

We were greeted warmly at the desk and our request for a window table immediately accommodated. After the coat-check people "parked" our coats, we were led to a great tale. Our waiter promptly took a drink order and, for the next three hours, demonstrated what a professional he was. Avra is an amazingly well run restaurant. Oh, and the food was delicious and creatively presented! We used to live on the very bock (60th Street) where Avra is located and hadn't gotten around to going there. Now we can't wait for an excuse to go back.

Not nearly as good as last time we went.
Having said that, Ashley was terrific.
At these prices, food should be excellent.....it was good.

Avra Madison continues to be our favorite restaurant in NYC. It consistently excels in service, food , ambiance, etc. Love the
Zucchini chips and bread basket ! Best grilled Octopus anywhere.
Everything we order we love including the baklava for dessert!
Always busy because it meets all the criteria for dining out no matter what the occasion!

First time in this location since it was Rouge Tomate, which was a standby for me. They did a beautiful job with the aesthetics, as well as sound-proofing. Service was excellent - they have a ton of staff working! Tuna tartare was excellent, as was the lavraki. My dining companions enjoyed their octopus and lamb chops as well. The lunch special is a ridiculously good deal for the area . . . no wonder the place was packed at lunchtime. We will definitely be back!
