Taverna Agora is an authentic Greek kitchen & bar where friends & family enjoy good wine, eat wonderfully prepared, simple food and relax. The restaurant is reminiscent of gathering places found in Greece, with old world flavors and rustic roots. However, Taverna Agora expands beyond the traditional agora with a few modern flares, including hand-crafted cocktails, a gourmet marketplace and Sunday brunch.

We actually went here twice, once for lunch and once for late night drinks. The calamari is the best I've ever had. I also tried the homemade grape leaves which were awesome. My fiancé had the gyro and it was a very large portion and very tasty. When we came back for a late night drink the bar tender was... More

We were So excited for a pretty rooftop in downtown Raleigh! We came for date night with a nine o'clock reservation. Beautiful ambience. Set up like a restaurant, but there was no hostess and we were told to sit anywhere. Kind of strange. Started with wine "on tap." I tried the Chardonnay and the boyfriend tried the Pinot Gris which... More

If you love Greek food, you'll love Taverna. If you're unsure about Greek food, you'll love Taverna. If you love food, you'll love Taverna. Service is A+, and the food, well just incredible. Brunch, lunch, or dinner, you can count on consistency, flavor, and a wonderful atmosphere.

Where do I start, The food was superb, I had the pork chop my dinning companion had the salmon we both agreed this was the best meal that we have had in a long time. The staff was super friendly and took care of us like we were the only patron in a full house. The upstairs bar was just... More

This moderately upscale restaurant is a delight to the palate! Authentic Greek cuisine done right! A cozy ambience and charming waiters made our dining experience so rewarding. Tried a new drink called the Aphrodite which was fantastic. I will make a point to come here when I am in Raleigh!

Taverna Agora, a Greek kitchen and bar adjacent to the Holiday Inn Downtown Raleigh, is apparently relatively new to this location. We made reservations the day before we planned to dine there, and I'm glad we did. Our first stop, after confirming our reservation, was the rooftop bar, where my wife had a glass of Spanish sparkling wine and I... More

Our family had a great Father's Day brunch at Taverna Agora in downtown Raleigh. Needless to say, the restaurant was busy so food prep was a bit slow and you could tell it was a fairly new restaurant, so the servicers were still getting in learning mode. Nevertheless, the meal was wonderful. Everyone loved their lunch item (Eggs Benedict, lamb... More

I was so excited when this place opened a few weeks ago. It's in a great location downtown and Raleigh hasn't had a good Greek restaurant. I had dinner there last night and will not be going back. The food was uninspired, not even average, way over salted, and reminded me of something you'd eat at an airport chain restaurant.... More
