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 booked the reservation, and specifically indicated that my option was to sit outside. They are lovely booths set up outside, and a few extra tables with no extra frills across from the booths. However, notwithstanding that I could show evidence of my outdoor request, the three hostess mentioned that basically that did not mean anything, and there was another step to ensure we got outside seating. When my husband pressed to show us what we needed to do, she could not tell us. They could offer us a booth at 4.30 and our reservation was 2.45, as neither one of us wanted to sit inside, we had no choice but to sit at the no frills table across from the booths. I felt bad for my husband, as this was his first time out since he lost his mum, and I wanted him to have a lovely lunch, there were some booths open. The food and drinks were great, and Ricardo our waiter was wonderful. It could have been an awesome experience if we given a table in the outside booths. I still don't know what you need to do to ensure you get a table outside, even when you specifically request outside in the reservation and can show evidence of us

Fantastic evening. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. We sat outdoors so, no surprise, it was bit noisy but not so much that you could not enjoy each other. All around great experience.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Avra. The restaurant was beautifully appointed, they tastefully asked for our proof of vaccination, and we escorted to a lovely banquet. Our servers were delightful and the food was delicious. I ordered the Greek salad and had my first flavorful and delicious tomato all year! Highly recommend going for a wonderful dining experience!

I had never heard of this restaurant, but some man told us about its fabulous thirty-one dollars and fifty cent lunch special when we were getting our booster shot at Walgreens. We decided to try it. Wow! We have lived in New York over forty years, and this is the most elegant restaurant we have recently dined in. The food was delectable--even the fruit for dessert was in perfect form. The service was gracious but not intrusive. Even the hostess was welcoming in a gracious way. We are going back and taking any friends whom we really like there. It is fabulous!!!
