I know that the meat is their thing, but the salad bar is awesome, it was more than what I've expected. The whole experience was more than what I've expected. The steaks were great (very limited lambs) , but I wish they have other varieties like rabbits, alligators, etc. Overall, I was please with the resturant.

My wife and I were looking forward to trying this restaurant for the first time in our anniversary. Expectations were high since we had eaten at Brazilian Steakhouses in San Diego Gas Lamp district . we arrived after 6 PM and the restaurant was not crowded. We were seated in a dimed area of the restaurant. Skirt steak was fatty,... More

I absolutely love this place! I've been to Rio and have tried real Brazilian food (it is my favorite food), and can say that Agora's dishes are same tasty. I would recommend this place. It's a bit pricy, but it worth the money!

I've been here on a business dinner. the best part to me was the salad bar and the non-meat items. The meat brought around was pretty pedestrian in my view. A few of the guys in my party still were in the game, as indicated by the green card at their place setting but no more meat was brought around.... More

The food quality and presentation is nothing less then outstanding at Agora's, yes, it is a bit pricy ($52.00 per adult & $26.00 per child, 12 & under) but the meat, salad bar and hot sides dishes are superior to any other Brazilian restaurant I've every been too! I strongly recommend it, you won't be disappointed!

All you can eat beef, sausage, and other meats. All of it very well cooked, good salad bar, nice desserts. The only problem is knowing when to stop.

My wife and I were looking forward to trying this restaurant for the first time. Expectations were high since we had eaten at Brazilian Steakhouses in Dallas. On March 17th we arrived at 6:45 and the restaurant was not overly busy. We were seated in a dark area of the restaurant so it was difficult to see our food. I... More

Who doesn’t love boatloads of meat delivered directly to your table? I know I do. Makes me feel like a Viking or something. Anyway, we took my dad here for his birthday and had a really nice time. Got a nice table near the door and a big rock wall. Interesting decor in this place—kind of a strange mix between... More

Though not a real family with young children eating experience, this place was otherwise fantastic. Our first experience with Brazilian style restaurants came during a visit to Universal Studios Hollywood in 2014. On this trip to SoCal we stayed with our Son and his wife. For dinner we through out some ideas and this one took off. Quickly we were... More

The salad bar is artfully displayed with many excellent offerings. Chilled shrimp are displayed in a carved ice bowl and the nova next to that is top notch. There is an extensive hot bar with clams and mussels that are devoid of the sandiness that is usually present and not at all chewy. Pace yourself and flip your card to... More
