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!

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.

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.

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.

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...
