The ambiance and service were both excellent, and the food was very good. One of our party was a vegetarian, however, and the options for her were extremely limited. The addition of some kind of hot vegetarian entree would be very helpful.
Our reservation was missing from their system and the server wasn't as attentive.
The waitress we had mentioned that there were several types of meats prepared in 14 different ways each but we only saw about 4 different meats. We had our green cards up but we barely got presented any of the cuts and were pestered when we clearly had them on red. The meats we did get to try were a bit dry and the chicken especially tasted like it had severe freezer burn. Not impressed overall and glad we had a 100$ gift card to help pay the damage. Would not go here again.
Drove over an hour to eat. Was pleasantly impressed. Great service and great food. It is expensive but the meal is so good. Will definitely go again
It was a very pleasurable dining experience. Meat was coming around very often and the quality of the meat was great. The manager(?) came around and was very friendly. Overall, a great experience.
It was pretty good, service was quick. We had a 5pm reservation for a family dinner where our parents were meeting for the first time. The waiter accidentally spilled a glass of water on my sister but the staff was good about clean up and the management even offered a free dessert and complimentary drinks as an apology. The meat was tasty and the salad bar had a lot of variety. I would definitely go back for a special occasion or even just for a date night dinner.
We were greeted by the hostess and were quickly seated. We were even asked if we had a preference of a seat by the windows or salad bar! Our server explained how everything worked since it was our first time dining. The food was very delicious and well worth the price. We will definitely be returning to enjoy another meal!
The meat was delicious and staff did a wonderful job
Had a party of 9 was seated and everything was exquisite! Our server Chanel was adorable and friendly she made our first visit wonderful! The staff was knowledgeable and observant to each of our needs. The salad bar was divine, and the meat selections were absolutely wonderful! Thank You Agora! I can’t wait to host another get together in your beautiful Restaurant. 5 delicious stars.
Server was absolutely great, friendly but also very real and genuine .. he might have been newer to the restaurant, younger looking dude but 100% great
Excellent service and food as always!
Great service. Several of the meat dishes were amazing; others were over cooked. Wine selection could be better. Caipirinha was the best I’ve had outside of Brazil!
Excellent , excellent , excellent ..... ask for Violet and Omar , Esteban .
Really really really good , 20 stars !
1st time here and from the time we arrived was made to feel really welcomed. Our waitress was very nce and asked if we had been there before. I told her this was my first time (my wife had been there before) and she was really attentive and explained their setup. Our water glass was never empty, the meats came around frequently and one of the servers even asked if there was a specific meat we wanted to try. A restaurant employee (think the mgr on duty) even came by during our dinner and asked how was everything. Overall. Had a great experience and would def come back!
The food was delicious. The service was great. The only thing I didn’t like about this place is that it is basically buffet style. I figured a place this pricey, the food would be served to you.
It was amazing just like last time we were here. Waitress and waiter were very friendly and attentive to our needs. Food was delicious! I would recommend their flan for desert.
Everything is good, except it was on Vday, and our table obviously was last min set up. Missing the decorations on the table when all other tables have it.
the table is unbalance, tilted to one side on the other.
other than that, it was good.
We tried Agora Churrascaria for the frist time for Valentine's Day; after hearing so many positive reviews. The holiday menu/prices were not a worth it, suggest eating there on non-holidays. The buffett items were good, however nothing to special. Obviously, you go to Agora Churrascaria for the meats; the meats were as good as advertised. For meat lovers, go light on the buffett items and enjoy the great variety of meats served table side by the gauchos. Fair warning, show up hungry as you will want to sample every meat option - several times!
Was seated right around my reservation time even though the place was packed. Service was very friendly, the hostess' were trying their best to accommodate all of the guests. Even though it was very busy the service was very good.
I have been trying to get to this restaurant for some time, but with family and work, we never had the time. I decided to make reservations for Valentine's day. Yes I know it's the busiest time of the year for restaurants. So I knew what to expect. When we showed up to our reservation there were alot of people waiting. We checked in and went to the bar to grab a drink. We were finally called 10 minutes after our reservation time, which were arrived 15 min early. Yes that's 25 min waiting to be seated. We sat in our table and waited for someone to wait on us. Finally I flagged someone and she got our waitress for us. We ordered the champagne that came with our set menu and I ordered a glass of wine to accompany my dinner. Which I never got. The meats were amazing but it took the gauchos a really long time to pass by. I think a restaurant like this should be prepared to handle a busy work load. I don't think there is an excuse for mediocre service. The ambience was good. But I wouldn't come back. Maybe my expectation was too high. I expect to get what I order and some attention from our waiter/waitress to see if we are taken care of.
It was an incredible night. An amazing experience. We got engaged, our server walked up as it was happening and was very genuinely excited with us
The service was horrible. We literally sat at our table for over half an hour without ever being served anything. Our waiter never bothered to ask if we wanted anything else to drink (which we did) - nobody came back with any meats just absolutely nothing. Waiter took him 20 minutes to bring a stock dessert (it was pre served flan) and then 15 more just for the check. Service started fine then we were totally ignored for the rest of the evening. Would NOT recommend
This is a GREAT Churascaria!!! I have always enjoyed eating here. I recently ate at one of their competitors and was very disappointed. We dined here on Saint Valentines Day. Yet the restaurant was able to keep up with the full restaurant. The food bar was great as usual. I enjoy the Feijoada, smoked salmon, etc. The meats were plentiful, cooked to perfection and tasted FANTASTIC!!!!
Great food, the sirloin cap is the best! Great service always! This was our 10th Valentine’s Day there.
Don’t Come Here! Screaming kids on Valentine’s Day. No waiter/waitress once seated. Manager helped wait staff make guests happy. Poor establishment. Go to Fogo De Chao!
Absolutely amazing food, everything was cooked to perfection and the salad bar is to die for.
Food is always excellent. Only this time around our waiter was not so great. Had to wait 15 minutes for him to come and get our drink order. He forgot my refill. I asked for a certain meat. It never came. Even when I asked him again. Until I asked someone else and it was brought to us.
What can i say about agora other than it is the BEST brazilian bbq in orange county. Ive been dining at agora for years and it never fails to dissapoint me. A good ol' glass of red wine and unlimited quality meat for a great price, can't beat that at all! Best part: amazing side/salad/appetizer bar. You are free to grab a plate and get as much as you want as your sides and starters and there are endless options. Great restaurant and awesome date night :)
2nd time in this restaurant. that's really it. i don't know if we come at a bad time or they really didn't have meat. we were only served tri tip the whole night and lamb. takes 20 minutes interval to serve the meat. that's it. the whole night we were just eating fish, salad and rice.
We have been to this reataurant many times. We waited too long to be served and the service was not outstanding. The food was outstanding. We have always been pleased and I have always given 5 stars this visit was ok.
This was our first time here and we will definitely be back. Our experience from beginning to end was great. Our server was great . She explained to us how the dining would go and offered us a cocktail or water to start. Her friendly personality was so enjoyable. The table staff was great with making sure we had a clean plate , fresh water, and anything else we may need. The gauchos were very friendly and the food choices exceeded our expectations and quality and taste of the meat choices were delicious. The cocktails were well made and the pricing was good too. Can't wait to return back again.
Great place to go, but very, very pricey for a buffet. Would choose Mastro's if spending this money.
I've been here few times and i find this is the best brazilian BBQ place!
Ambiance is none existing during my visit. There was no dress code and too many families with small children, crying and screaming.
Not the portrait Ambiance as on the video advertising. Many guests would walk in with sandals, dirty clothing as if just getting off work from construction for the day and noticed quite a bit of people with not appropriate clothing, i.e. torn t-shirts, old shorts, and in some cases appearances of no personal hygiene. My visit with family resulted in well over 400.00, which in my opinion does not fit the Ambiance Standards at the location. Wish you best of luck in continuing business.
My son’s 21st Birthday!
Belated birthday lunch. The service was outstanding and the chicken hearts were amazing. My favorite is still the skirt steak and it didn’t disappoint.
We had a table for 9 and we were seated with more privacy than I expected. It was kind of noisy but that's not the restaurant's fault. Loved the food. Loved the service. We are definitely coming back!!!
Perfect for big parties.
Absolutely loved the experience, will be back in July
