One of the best salad bars I have ever had. Tons of AYCE hot/cold choices are the perfect start to your meal. The meat selections came out hot and fast. Top end cuts were tasty and tender. Will come back here again and again for...More

Agora serves up delicious cuts of meat, of course, insane quantities. The salad bar is chock-full of fresh veggies but also has plenty of hot side dishes like mashed potatoes and seafood (mussels, shrimp, salmon) too. Our service was prompt and polite and we liked...More

We’ve been here a few times. This is what I like. It’s a Brazilian Steakhouse. This means all you can eat and there are many options and the salad bar is extensive. Amazing bread balls. The chicken stroganoff was a hit and so was the...More

Went to Agora for a business lunch today. And it was packed... I had a salad and all meat. I really enjoyed the skirt steak and filet wrapped in bacon. I passed on the chicken, sausage and lamb. I will return, but not for awhile....More

This churrascaria in Irvine is good enough in terms of authenticity (compared to the original versions in Brazil) but certainly falls short on the variety and is also quite pricey. Prices are tiered. Salad only, Salad plus meats and add-on dessert. Drinks are extra. So,...More

We'd never been to a Brazilian steak house and at $52/person we weren't sure what to expect but luckily this place delivered and delivered and delivered. Expect your stay to be a couple of hours (you'll need some time to loosen that belt)! They serve...More

The night we were there it was not offered. I would call the restaurant and ask. I was not impressed with the quality of the meats.
