Went here for dinner the other night and this place is amazing! This is authentic greek food from the appetizers to the entrees and everything else in between the one and only place for greek food in the Triangle area! Only open for dinner but we'll worth the trip from anywhere in the area!! Desserts are also a must. Staff... More

I love Greek food but it is really hard to find really good Greek food in the Triangle. I recently went to Taverna Agora on a Friday night for a birthday dinner. There was a sizable crowd and nearly every table was full. Service was excellent; my waiter was very attentive and we never had to ask for more drinks.... More

I love Greek food -- and come by it naturally being half Greek. Though it is on a challenging part of Glenwood Ave to access, Taverna Agora is worth the trip. The food is excellent and authentic, the portions are large and the prices are reasonable. There are so many good options it is hard to choose what to have.... More

The food is delicious and the service is always excellent! Prices are reasonable and there is a great variety of foods to choose from. Try the Baklava Cheesecake, it's phenomenal!

This charming Greek bistro in suburban Raleigh is a must do. It is good solid perfectly appointed Agean with all the Mediterranean ambiance... bells and whistles from the blue and white table cloths to the sweet background music and belly dancer. (HEADS UP: Taverna Agora is moving closer to downtown Raleigh in late 2014 or early 2015) It is open... More

My girlfriend and I go here to eat all the time, but not so much that its not special every time we go. The service is great, food is authentic and tasty and the setting and ambience is special. This place has our favorite dessert and I remember asking the management where they get it from and all he would... More

I took my husband last night for a belated Father's Day dinner. As always, the food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the Saganaki and the Pita/Hummus/Calamari platter as appetizers. Everything was hot, fresh, and delicious! Be sure to order the Red Wine Sangria. I am not a big drinker, but look forward to at least two glasses of the Sangria... More

If you love Greek food, check out this place. The service is very attentive and the dishes awesome. I love Moussaka and they prepare it very tasty. I don't usually care for squid but the appetizer I had was a 'melt in your mouth' experience.

Once again I had a really good experience at this restaurant. We had the spicy feta appetizer which was hot, but tasty. We had the grilled salmon and the moussaka. Everything was well prepared and attractively served. The Cambas red went well with the meal.
