Steakhouse
Agora Churrascaria is a Brazilian Steak House in the "Rodizio" style, where waiters, dressed as Gauchos (local ranchers from the South), move from table to table carrying skewers of meat, from which they slice portions for their guests. Agora serves 12 different cuts of meat, including beef, pork, lamb and chicken. The restaurant prepares each cut as it has been for centuries: seasoned with rock salt to accent the individual tastes of each cut, and slow-roasted over an open flame. Upon being seated, every guest is given a green and red-sided circular chip to control their fixed price, continuous tableside service. The green side signals the Gaucho to "bring it on," while the red side stops the service. For additional servings, guests simply flip the indicator back to the green side. In addition to the succulent meat selections, Agora offers an outstanding hot and cold salad bar, comprised of Brazilian and seafood specialties as well as a variety of tempting side dishes.

We were a party of 5 with a toddler and had reservations at 5:00 ( opening time ). Initially seated at closest table to the door, when asked to move to something with a bit more ambiance, the staff were very nice and accommodating. Food was excellent, but best of all the service was outstanding. Our server was one of the most professional and “on it” waitresses ever. I was impressed. The meal is pricey. Bring a large appetite.

Great salad bar and meat selection. The cap and bacon wrapped steak are our favorites. The kid loves their chicken hearts. We’ll have to keep an eye on her.

Great Brazilian Steakhouse. Terrific salad bar (much more than salad), awesome service. Hostesses were especially welcoming. Lunch option too - which is rare with this type of dining. Location by John Wayne Airport makes the location very convenient as well.

A great place to eat. Pricey but worth it... I recommend knowing what kind of meat you like and ask just that, so you don't get full before you favorite meat comes around. Though, if you're new to this place definitely try all of them.
Over all you will be satisfied.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Agora Churrascaria. The filet was a little well done, but still flavorful. My favorite is the skirt steak. We will definitely be back soon!

Really very very tasty meat
Good quality food materials, great salad bar
Friendly, hospitality is very nice
Waitress are trying to make hurry during end of the day (around 21.30-22.00) so you should go before 20.00
Better than Texas de Brazil
Better and better and very better than Fogo de Cao

Extremely & outrageously expensive for the type of value we were served.
The meat all tasted the same & did not feel warm.
It was all tough and not palatable.
The hot bar was not appealing, mashed potatoes were not fluffy & moist... sitting too long
Bartender did not know how to serve a Manhattan drink

Summary: came here for dinner and every cut of meat was terrible. I had never had a dry filet mignon before I came here. None of the meat had any taste and for the cost I just couldn't believe it. Dont go here, go to Flemmings or Ruth's Chris.

I absolutely love this place! The service you receive is of very high quality, everyone is super friendly and professional. The food is amazing - the portions, the spices, the marinades, the salad bar. There are so many options to choose from when you come here. We attended this last time for a special occasion and our experience was nothing short of wonderful. I cannot wait to come back!
