The food and the service is good. The decor is quite average. I have been there a couple of times but mostly for the convenience of the location.

Avra is an excellent restaurant To have good quality fresh fish. The place is very open, perfect for Spring and summer season. Nice list of Wine is available.

Arrive on time for a reservation. Promises of being seated in next 10 minutes. Then promises of "you are next" given out to 5 different parties. Dishonest and disgraceful Avoid unless you like bad attitudes and pathetic service.

Wow!! What a great Greek Restaurant. Be sure and head back and look at all the freshly caught fish in ice. You can even pick out which one(s) you want. Mezes were fresh. Tomatoes were so red and sweet. Can't say enough about it. Reservations...More
