Stopped by here for lunch and dinner and was not disappointed. Food fresh and flavoursome. Service good but could have been faster. Pricing ok.

I was looking forward to great Greek food but it was a total disappointment. The atmosphere feels cheap and the seats are uncomfortable. The wine selection was not good. I sampled a few and couldn't find one I liked. We ordered the Greek Spreads Trio....More

Taverna Agora is perfect for a summer rooftop dinner with good friends. The service and ambience were excellent. Try the Greek appetizers and the calamari.

This was a very reasonably priced restaurant with excellent food. It has an authentic and family feel. Looks great, tastes great. My server was just awesome. I asked if they had an olive plate appetizer, they did not so he just brought me some olives.

Description
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.
