This place is awesome! Authentic Greek fare with reasonable prices. It's hard to recommend just one dish! The spicy feta appetizer, the lemon chicken orzo soup, the pork chops, the lamb chops... this is what we had between my husband and I, and every last bit of it was absolutely delicious! If you still have room (ask for a doggie... More

If you are in Raleigh, NC and are hungry for authentic Mediterranean food then look no further than Taverna Agora. The folks who own and operate this restaurant are genuinely interested in serving top notch food at reasonable prices. The wait staff is typically prompt and courteous but not over bearing. We have never had a disappointing meal there and... More

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday night. There were 7 of us. The restaurant was not very busy. We ordered wine, appetizers and main course. The service was impeccable. The appetizers and bread with seasoned olive oil were 5 star, the house cabernet was even better! The main courses were good. Would go back!!!

Back in the day, my wife and I used to go the a Greek restaurant on Hillsborough St. called The Golden Key. Everything they had was a trip to Greece. Well, Taverna Agora is all that and more. First of all, the service is excellent (though I will admit that we were there after 9:00 p.m. on a Friday, and... More

This was our third visit to this restaurant. The service was excellent as was the food. It was a festive Christmas Eve dinner.

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!
