Simply deliciousAbsolutely fabulous food all around at reasonable price points. Service was good in quality but a little slow at times due to how busy it can get5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Turkish Food in DCWent here with family and had a delicious dinner and lots of fun. Highly recommend flatbreads and almost all mezes. Entrees seems inexpensive but portions are small so order food to share. Popular place and has large covered outdoor dining area.
helpful if somewhat overwhelmed servers.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!We go to dc every spring for a meeting.

One of my favorite spots in DC.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMComing Back for MoreI could not have been more pleased. They nailed it with the brunch scene. It was a great deal, and we were able to try many different small plates. The drinks were very good, and all items were served/plated with the nicest presentation. I can't wait to go back for brunch again, and show this place off to more friends.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe vacationed in Turkey threeWe vacationed in Turkey three years ago and discovered Agora shortly after our return. We relive the experience a bit every time we visit Agora. It reminds us of the many wonderful restaurants we went to in Turkey -- except with a better wine and beer selection. Service is prompt and friendly, the food is great, and the atmosphere lively. It is difficult to get a reservation sometimes, especially when the weather is nice. And, the small-plates format means the tab is a bit pricey -- though worth it! I recently visited the restaurant for lunch for the first time and -- it's a bargain with tasty and affordable salad and sandwich combos.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy party did the pre fixeMy party did the pre fixe brunch deal: It was worth the value to be able to try lots of items on the menu and have unlimited brunch drinks. The food was great overall; I really enjoyed the Mediterranean flavors, and the hummus was so smooth! So delicious!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey for what you get.Pricey for what you get.

Tons of vegetarian options and every single dish was absolutely delicious! Drinks were good as well. Best brunch I've been to in a long time!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost too noisy to talkFood & service were great, but I left with a sore throat from having to talk loudly.
Interesting that the noise ratings (to me) are backwards -quiet is only 1 star; and there's no rating for "too noisy".4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGee, this place is just awesome.Gee, this place is just awesome. You have to be in the mood for small bites and shared plates...but every morsel is exquisitely prepared. The vegetables and fish burst with freshness and flavor (I didn't try any of the meat dishes). Can't get enough of this restaurant.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best moderately pricedThe best moderately priced restaurant on 17th Street. The quality of the food - ingredients and preparation - is always excellent. Mostly small plates. Try any of the Turkish dishes. Our neighborhood favorite.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious savory middle easternAfter living and traveling in the Middle East we're always thrilled to find excellent middle eastern food and Agora surely delivers. Overall a 4 rather than a 5 as our bill quickly climbed to $200 for 4 people - add tip and it's an expensive meal for small plates. Not enough food for a hearty eater but plenty for an average one. Other than price the meal was terrific and the service was harried but very good. Mon-Fri 4-7 has a better value happy hour menu at the bar so you may want to test out their menu and drinks there.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our dinner.We really enjoyed our dinner. Food was excellent, especially the chicken with pita. (Wasn't aware it was tapas beforehand.) Great place for couples or groups.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. ReadWe had a great time. Read many Yelp reviews and was a bit concerned. We did not experience any of the issues recounted in YELP3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI read a number of unfavorableI read a number of unfavorable reviews for this place along with the good and most of those reviews had to do with an unpleasant staff. I took a chance because they take reservations on a Saturday night which is unusual and I had somewhere to be afterwards. The restaurant turned out to be more than I expected. The wait staff were friendly and helpful as my date and I were ordering food that was unfamiliar to us. In no case did I see bad behavior and can only guess that the guests who found the staff unfriendly were perhaps being unreasonable themselves. There are 2 sides to every story. The food was great even though I didn't know what I was eating half the time but it was exactly as described. Would I go here again? Absolutely.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Dupont Circles bestThe food is consistently very good and reasonably priced--as are the wines. However, they should fix the espresso machine or back it up with a few 4, 8, and 12-cup never-fail stove-top espresso makers.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
