About Avra Madison Estiatorio on 60th

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.

The food was surprisingly bad. I have gone for years to Avra off Lex. This time while the ambiance is superb and the service excellent the food was bad. The octopus was tasteless, the barbounia the same and the fries were rock hard and should have frankly been returned. What happened guys? Expanding too fast to hire good cooks. Προσοχή.

One of the most beautiful restaurants in New York, we loved the decor and overall ambiance of Agra Madison. Only complaint was I got violently got sick most likely from Greek fish called 'fagri'' a 117 dish, which was strongly pushed by our server (1043 Peter). Within a few minutes after we left the restaurant I had to discharge involuntarily whatever food that was served by Peter. I had to do what I had to at Barney's rest room, a short walk from Ava Madison. It was a nightmarish disaster. Something was unclean, perhaps from mis-handled fish touched by too many people.

Beautiful light, fresh, clean, comfortable space. Good, solid food. Yummy Greek Omelette and Seafood Hash. Superb desserts.\nStaff needs more training. I didn't like The way they congregate in clusters, leaning on the service bar with their backs to the table. It seemed like they had their B Team there at brunch.\n\nI called to confirm brunch reservation the afternoon before and spoke with the hostess yet at 9:00am on a Sunday morning received a phone call (waking up the birthday boy) to again confirm reservation.\nPlenty of staff. They need more polish and professionalism to go with their outfits.

For me, this new venue beats their 48th St. location in every category. Avra Madison is elegant, spacious, and quiet. \nI had the prix fixe lunch with my wife. The portions were so large that we actually took home one entree! It took a little extra time for our appetizer to come out of the kitchen, so the waiter (a super guy named Steven) brought over complimentary spanakopita, and an apology. Not necessary, but appreciated. We had the swordfish brochette, which was delicious - moist and wonderfully seasoned. For dessert, we had fresh fruit and a wonderful chocolate-yogurt cheesecake. They didn't make it to the doggy bag!\nThe place is beautiful, the kitchen prepares delicious food, the staff is professional and friendly, and, by the way, the two lime trees at the entrance... they are real. Trust me.\nWe'll be back!

Was very excited to finally be going to Avra Madison... First, we got walked 'downstairs' to the 'kids' table'...not bad, but not the vibrancy of upstairs. We had to wait a bit for initial service...but once rolling, it was okay. Somalier became especially attentive which helped. Food was good. Overall okay. Will go back.

This is one of the strangest restaurants on the planet. I have been to the original Avra on 48th many times. Solid Greek seafood, relaxed atmosphere, with standard midtown crowd. I finally tried Avra Madison, located in arguably the most expensive, most sophisticated, most tony neighborhood in the country, if not the planet. Right off Central Park and 5th Avenue, across the street from the elegant and revered Metropolitan Club (founded by JP Morgan and the Vanderbilts), Avra Madison resides in a highly stylish and spacious room that you would expect in this neighborhood of the highest end shopping in the world. That's why when I entered the restaurant doors, I was shocked. The crowd was more out of place than a blonde woman in Mecca. The crowd was B and T (Bridge and Tunnel) to the extreme. New Jersey, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island accents permeated, with big hair, tacky clothes, shiny suits, loud and rude. My first reaction was how these people found this place and took it over. Did the owners wake up and decide they wanted to create a casting location for the Jersey Shore and send out invitations. I next thought that after dinner these folks were probably headed to the Ba Da Bing Club in Hoboken. I mean WTF was going on. So avoid this place at all costs unless you are a B and T er. Just go to the original Avra (better food at lower price) or Milos for your Greek seafood. There is no way this place will survive with this crowd. But if you are from out of town and want to see what the Jersey Shore crowd, and cast of Goodfellas, check it out. I am not exaggerating one single bit. Avra Madison is a freak show.

The food was delicious but the service was horrible. They rushed us to the point that we asked them to slow down but they kept piling the food on. The waiter put the dessert menu down and when we didn't order fast enough, he just took the menus away without asking us what we wanted. We had a 7:15 reservation and were done eating at 8:00. When I spend $550 on dinner, I like to take a moment between courses to breathe. This restaurant may be cool for the moment they are not going to get neighborhood customers to return with this service.

Another great night at Avra Madison, our new favorite treat of a dinner out. Great, fresh food well cooked and seasoned. Excellent wait staff, fun crowd and a beautifully decorated space. Expect a delicious meal, well presented and served at a fair price (not cheap). Drinks are great, bar scene fun and upscale. If you like relaxed, leisurely eating go early and watch the scene heat up through your meal. Lots of fun, will be back soon.

One-percenter greek food. The appetizers aren't cheap but the portions are substantial. The grilled octopus was amazing and worth every penny. Our side of potatoes was top notch, too, while the horta was slightly bitter and buttery as horta should be. Ordering fish by the pound produced a much larger ticket than anticipated. Very simple preparation. The greatest disappointment was the 'least sweet' cocktail that we ordered: THE TIDES OF POSEIDON - a Woodford Reserve / Campari / mastiha. It was quite sweet, tasting like fancy bourbon drowned in Koolade. We would have been better off dropping the cocktail menu to order a Manhattan or martini, though who knows what the costs off-menu on those would have been...?

Way, way Overpriced. Obnoxious hostess and Maitre'D. 20 tables empty upstairs at 6pm but they make us wait 30 minutes and then take us downstairs! (Less desirable). Felt like a second class citizen and I am not returning. \nHostess snapped at me when I asked where I could find the coat check attendant 'It's obviously really busy here right now! She will be back soon enough, you'll just have to wait!' This was in response to my smiling and asking 'pardon me, where can I find the coat check attendant?' Save your money. Or go spend it a Le Bilboquet on the next block. Better looking crowd, better service, better food.

The first floor was a mad house and we waited well over 30 minutes to be seated; it took 5 minutes just get through the front door. When we questioned why our table wasn't ready after 20 minutes of waiting, the host pointed out we checked in five minutes late. An odd response to a common question and again, we simply couldn't walk straight into the restaurant it was such a scene. Finally after being seated nearly 45 minutes later, we were brought downstairs to a dining area that better suited our party's needs. Food was very good, waitstaff was kind and helpful. That being said, as a first time diner walking in, not pleased with the wait time or host experience. For my group, next time we would take our business elsewhere.

If you are a foodie, as our entire group was, this is definitely not the best place to eat for the prices you are paying.

i like Avra, I have been at the other AVRA location, this was our first time at AVRA of Madison Avenue. I do not know if they had too many guests or what really happened. Our food was delayed for almost one hour from appetisers to the main entree. i had to called the manager twice in order to find out what happened to our food. We were told there was a confusion on our order. i had a business client with us in this dinner. it was her first time at an AVRA restaurant and this did not leave a good impression.

This was our third time here and the service was so disappointing. While one person at the table was still eating his appetizer they removed everyone else's plates and started serving the dinner. When we complained they took the dinner back but this should never have happened. We felt rushed and there were plenty of open tables so there was no need for this. We called over a manager who really did nothing. He should have apologized and offered us something which he did not. We love the food and will go back but this left a sour taste.

For foodies with patience, this is a terrific choice! The quality of the fish and vegetables can not be beat, and the simple preparation sets off the perfection of the underlying ingredients. Try the unusual types of Greek fish, and do look at the display on ice! Also, come with patience... The reservation system seems to be booking tables with 1:15 minutes turnaround times, and it's totally unrealistic. Might be frustrating for a business dinner... Fabulous desserts, and a hot bar scene top things off!

The majority of the staff is very nice and the managers work very hard to make sure everyone is happy. The waiter we had the first time was a Greek man who was excellent, helpful and knowledgable. The second time, we had a waiter who was not good, but he was very pleasant and was trying, so no problem. The last time, we ended up with a hostess who was doubling as a waitress and she was incompetent, which we could have dealt with, but she was also completely out of line, rude and totally disrespectful. The manager intervened and he was excellent and very nice and helpful, but in truth she destroyed what would have otherwise been a 3rd lovely experience. Hopefully with time, they can weed out the bad apples because it really is a gorgeous restaurant and the majority of the staff is delightful. The food is not up to the standards of Milos, but it's pretty good. On the other hand, the desserts are OUTSTANDING. Truly excellent. Despite one miserable experience, I would still recommend the restaurant and I expect to return.

Attended Avra Madison last week, prior to their grand opening. The interior is really beautiful. The food was just okay, bland and mundane in my opinion. Octopus appetizer was perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. The composed entrees on the other hand were both terribly overcooked, the Jumbo Shrimp and the Swordfish. I had the baklava dessert which was great. I will go back and try it again once they get in a better rhythm.

Avra is a favorite restaurant for our family so I wasn't sure Avra Madison could live up to my expectations. It did and more! The space is gorgeous and the service was perfect, our server was friendly and anticipated every need. They know how to make you feel important here! And, of course the food here is fresh and delicious. Just choose any fish they make and you will be delighted!
