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 had made a reservation and specifically asked for a table that was as cozy/ tucked away as possible, and we were given a table by the bar full of loud crowd standing by us. The food was good but the ambience was terrible.

Good meal but no recognition of special occasion. At these prices, the expectation is that service should be gracious.

Outstanding, especially the service -- a very friendly, courteous and attentive staff. Entree came a bit early, but then we took a long time with our appetizer. Everything was perfectly prepared. We'll be back.

MY only complaint was the sauce for the oysters didn't have flavor! Boring. Maybe put some shallots in it. I had to use the clam cocktail sauce. No biggy

I have been to this restaurant several times. But each time they never have the table ready, they force you to go to the bar and order something while waiting for table. If they dont have table ready, then at least buy the customer a drink !

Service was very poor. Never felt like a priority. Didn’t have the requested bottle of wine. Didn’t get offered any alternatives. Water glass was empty almost the whole night. Shrimp was over cooked.

Fabulous!!!!! A beautifully decorated restaurant where one could sit with family or friends, enjoy a fabulous dinner and talk. I mean talk and not have to shout to hear each other. The acoustics in this restaurant are wonderful!!! I felt like I was at home in an elegantly appointed dining room with my family next to me enjoying a beautifully prepared meal with no noise and no intrusions. What a wonderful experience! Thank you Avra Madison for making my evening so special!!!!!!!

Swordfish skewer was terrific, with fish cooked perfectly. I don’t normally eat potatoes, but these were so good that I finished them. I normally avoid big, noisy rooms, but the food and service were so good that I will return.

So, I go there a lot. I am a fan. This time however the hostess behind the counter was very rude. It was busy but I had a reservation and just wanted to check if there were a possibility for me to sit (reservation was for 2 PM, I was there 1:30).

But then, meanwhile I was waiting, a very chic blond lady (I guess she is the manager) came, SUPER NICE AND POLITE) and arranged a table. She was the best and total opposite of the hostess there.

The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. I had the lamb chops that were cooked to perfection. They recommended appetizers that were delicious and comped excellent dessert for a friend’s birthday. One of the finest restaurants I have ever been to.
