We eat here often. The food is always delicious. We usually order the whole fish (they will debone it for you if you'd like) and lamb chops. Good salads to share pre-entree. Great service. Outdoor seating in the warmer months.

Avli is a wonderful restaurant. We had take out delivered and it arrived perfectly. The greek salad was filled with fresh ingredients, the small shrimp dish was ample for a regular serving and absolutely delicious, and everyone else was so happy with their special order...More

So, once again, I believe that what a restaurant makes best, is not what I order; fish. Appetizers were mostly excellent, Saganaki, fried artichokes and I would pass on the zucchini chips. My wife ordered Spanakopita (spinach pie with rice) and that was tasty. I...More

We’ve been here many times with good results. Recently our group of 10 sat outside on a lovely summer Sunday to enjoy a lovely brunch and chat for a couple hours. Service was excellent. The menu was plentiful. People were especially pleased with the octopus....More

Niko was a great help in making our selections at our first visit at Avli. If he is your server, take his advice if you are a newbie to Greek food. We had the artichokes for an appetizer, and the grilled onions, squid, shrimp, octopus...More

I’ve visited this restaurant twice and both times the food has been excellent. I’d recommend the seafood orzo, pastichio and octopus. There’s parking at the back of the restaurant and the restaurant has a nice patio, unfortunately it was too hot to sit there when...More
