    Food is good but a bit overpriced for what you get. I guess you pay for #midtown.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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
