Fun experience. Party of 7 adults & 2 kids.
Sonny was our table host & he was excellent.
All of the wait staff was accommodating.
So many protein options & all cooked to perfection.
For the price of dinner I was disappointed there were
no “desserts” included.
Excellent....every single time without exception.
I took my son for lunch to celebrate his birthday. Everyone was very nice. Our server Luiz was very attentive and friendly. All the gauchos were also very attentive and bringing meat cuts constantly. The salad bar was excellent, although I would have liked to see some type of soup or cream.
Overall, we loved the food and had a great time. We'll be back!
Great experience with great hospitality, the food was great, servers were great. I wouldn’t mind visiting again
Our server was amazing and very informative of everything on the menu and made some great food suggestions! All the food was fresh and delicious- an amazing astosphere
This is a fantastic restaurant, service was off the charts, and the food/Steak was fantastic.. Pretty pricey, but we will be back. :)
I took a client out for dinner a couple months ago and they loved it. I came back to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and she loved it! The waiter was very polite and friendly. So was the entire staff. They make you feel very welcomed.
Food was good. Not a lot of selection at the Salad bar like Foco De chao. Meat was good. But tell me why I was offered Leg of Lamb three times, the chicken leg 4 times. And the meat variety once each.
The meat was really good. May have to drive a few more minutes to go to Foco De Chao next time.
This was a surprise early birthday dinner on Sunday Feb. 16th. and our server was Mario. Neither one of us had been to a Brazilian Steakhouse and my guy had been talking about Picanha steak for well over a year. As a culinary professional with 10 years in the industry, it was very important to me to choose the right place for our occasion.
After reading many reviews of various restaurants from Los Angeles, West Covina, and Beach Cities, I finally made my decision on Agora Churrascaria and made a reservation for Sunday night at 6:30. After driving 70 miles I was so happy that there was no overly large gaudy sign to ruin my surprise. His eyes lit up upon our entrance and filled with excitement while taking in the atmosphere. We walked in the door and were immediately seated by the kind host. The restaurant was buzzing but not overly packed. A few guests at the bar and occupied tables in each section with gauchos bustling from table to table. We sat in the back corner of the restaurant behind a stone pillar which provided some privacy to our evening but also close to the salad bar. Mario came over shortly after sitting down and gave us a general breakdown as to how the system works. I highly suggest thinking about what you are going to put on your plate before eating or else you will be unable to eat what you really went there for.
The salad bar was divine, the cocktails were balanced, service impeccable, and hospitality ever so courteous. I preferred the cold items at the salad bar instead of what was on the hot side. Mixed greens, tomatoes, artichokes, cured salmon, shrimp cocktail, blanched veggies, marinated veggies, sauces and assortment of vinegars, oils, and of course the chimichurri. The skirt steak, tri tip and picanha were my absolute favorite. However, we were so full that we were unable to try everything. Dessert portions and presentations reasonable with price. Thank you for a memorable evening!
Outstanding service! Superb food! And such an amazing experience! Thank you to the chef and his team as well as our waitress Rachel!
Food is excellent but for us the service made this a truly memorable dining event. All the servers are attentive, beyond courteous and ensure all needs are met promptly and completely! The manager came over 2x to ensure we had an enjoyable experience and to confirm we had no needs to be met.
As for the food!! OMG! All meats were done perfectly with multiple levels of doneness on each spit. The Brazilian Black Beans are a must for pairing with steak and the Greens, chicken, lamb and Tri-Tip are excellent as well! DEFINITELY going back ASAP!
Good food good service worth the price !
Very clean and attentive personal will recommend to friends and family
Agira has always been a great to good, the food is good and the service is impeccable
Awesome experience. Every staff member was attentive and professional. Food was great, if you’re a meat eater. They also had a variety of food that you can get. Will recommend you family and friends and definitely be returning :)
Great service! So many delicious options! The salad bar alone is amazing, but the meats are so good! Our table favorite was definitely the garlic sirloin.
The selections and quality of the food at the salad bar/appetizers and the meats from the servers walking from table to table was amazing!! Cheese bread basket was always refreshed with warm biscuits and was delicious. Waitress was attentive and we wanted for nothing the entire meal. Only thing that would have made this 100 percent would have been a larger table for dinner. It was a small round table and not much extra room for plates and glasses. Other than that it was a fantastic St. Valentine's dinner.
I've been now, three times to Agora. I've loved it every time. This was no different. I only rated the ambiance less than perfect as the music played was overly boisterous, and reminiscent of a dance club or college frat party. The lamb was perfect. Especially the chops. Had they been on the fire for even a few more seconds, it would have been too long. I look forward to dining again.
Overall average food. The salad bar needed better salad options. Need more seafood options.
They only served certain cuts of meat and kept bringing the same cuts when I asked for other meat.
You are lucky if they serve you the dinner only items, rib, lamb chop, or tenderloin once during 1 hr dining.
I have been here many times and as always the food and service was excellent.
We absolutely love this restaurant. I could make a full meal out of just the salad bar! But then the meats start coming, and all my resolutions to be good go out the window. Great place for a date, dinner with friends, or a business meal. One of our top choices in the OC area!
It was great until the servers just stopped coming around despite a green light to do so...
Birthday celebration, agora was outstanding for a birthday celebration.
Food was amazing ...the cheese balls are to die for I was super excited to go the expectation was meet .
Happy to have found this spot to take customers.
Food is delicious, but it is hard to carry on a conversation.
The meats server should come more often coming around the tables.
We enjoyed our second New Year’s Eve dinner with you! We appreciate the large table being ready for us at our reservation time for the second year in a row! Very nice service too! From the greeter, the waitress and the meat servers- all had smiles on their faces and nice personalities!
Of course, New Years Eve is probably one of the busiest nights however, our waitress, who was very nice and helpful when she first introduced herself, was non existent for most of the dinner. I wanted to get a glass of wine but never had the chance. I could have asked a Groucho but never did, thinking she would return. Food was excellent and our friends that we brought along loved the food!
The meat was ok
We've been going there the last five years for our anniversary and I found everything excellent. The meat service was very good and the service that we received was superb. We will be back!!!
The waitress never show up to ask us how we were doing . Poor customer service .
Variety of food was excellent, Flavor was exquisite on the steaks even though the lamb was disappointing dry. Salad bar was great they had everything that would complement the meats. The Brazilian flan was delicious as well as the chocolate mousse and Tiramasu cake’s. I was charge a adult plate of $60 for a child under the age of 10. The customer service/waiter was nowhere to be found so our table was ignored during the entire time we were there. Our table was not cleaned or maintained properly as we tried to enjoy the varieties of meat and salad buffet table. Our server was sunny and he served everyone except our table so it was very disappointing he did provide a complimentary dessert sadly it was flan which I am not a fan of and agreed he ignored our table and was very apologetic and a kind man to acknowledge his mistake
Good dining experience overall.
Christmas dinner was so enjoyable at Agora. Our server was Sunny (second time we've had him) and he is great! If a specific cut of meat hasn't been offered, be sure to request it from your server. Favorites were the short rib, skirt steak, sirloin and filet mignon. We recently visited another local churrasco and felt the salad bar offerings at Agora is superior due to the seafood (shrimp cocktail, steamed mussels and baked salmon.) Make sure you come hungry!
Overall it was good as usual. Slow start tho.. We love the Manager. He is 1st Class. Just a couple of notes: Reception Guy in front saw we were all waiting for the doors to open but was not courteous to let us know he had unlock the doors for us to go inside out of the rain. There is always one person in the staff that doesn't belong there. Pork ribs were super dry this time. The meat choices had to be sought after and not readily available. At the end, our gift certificates that were issued were not honored. We were told December did not count even though nothing on the certificate stated so. The explanation "We have lot of reservations in December".....but how does that prevent us from using a valid gift card? Valet in the front is super courteous.
Christmas dinner perfect place to celebrate with family.
