    Tarama salata with pita a rare find. Great oysters. And don't miss truffle fries.

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

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

    Fish is very delicious - try fish of the day and octopus. Simply made which is perfect for this cuisine. Service is meh, esp the hostess

    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.

    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.

    Julie Tringali · May 22, 2015
  • Matthew T.

    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.

    Matthew Tringali · May 22, 2015
  • Chris K.

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

    Go for the jumbo shrimps.

    This place is awful. Made a reservation for 2 people for 745pm on a Tuesday night and waited 30 minutes. Was yelled at by a weird (trying to be sexy) hostess man to go to the bar. Horribly managed.

    You can view the fish you wish to order on a frozen bed towards the back of the restaurant

    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!

    Really good fish!

    Johan Apel · October 27, 2014

    Do not leave until you have the octopus.

    It never disappoints. The food is terrific. The sea bass with the mariano sauce is wonderful. Recommend the mixed appetizers Greek style and the fresh fish of course. The food is all of high quality.

    Just had a lobster pasta.. Don't! Pasta was over cooked, and lobster was not tasty.

    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

    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!

    Arugula salad is horrible but the lobster ravioli is good

    Unbeatable Greek food, perfectly cooked. All hits, no misses, on this menu. Love the sepia & the simple Greek salad. (Ps: Unrelated to Avra in Mykonos! :-) )

    Great for business lunches. Start with fried calamari and spanakopita. I recommend the Arctic Char for entrée. Delicious!

    #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.
