    Food served cold and extremely small portions. Fish was edible, but lacked seasoning.

    We had a large party that fluctuated when it came to the amount of people. Everything was lovely from the food to the service. The octopus is incredible.

    Prices were ridiculous when considering the quality of the food. The food was fine - but thats all. They offered a special that was shrimp and salmon kabobs and it was $35! The shrimp and salmon were not seasoned either. It was absolutely not worth the money spent. While very nice, the wait staff also hovered very close to our table and it was a little unnerving. I won’t be going back considering the prices and food quality. It just doesn’t make sense.

    The food was delicious. I went there at 8:30pm to celebrate my birthday but I guess we got there late because the waiter and food runner were rushing us I couldn’t even order my dessert I got one for free that was good but I didn’t have a choice. I couldn’t order a second drink. Very disappointed with the service but I found out the owner wasn’t there he was on vacation. I guess I’ll go back when he’s around.

    The food was quite delicious, but the ambiance was a bit of a disappointment. Photo of restaurant shown on OpenTable is misleading - it does not appear to be the same restaurant. We dined on a Thursday night when the restaurant was not very crowded, but we were sat at a table right next to the kitchen where servers were constantly passing back and forth. There were plenty of other tables they could have sat us at, where this would not have been an issue. It is not like they were very crowded at that time. Lighting was very poor and inconsistent throughout the dining room.

    We had a reservation and were seated promptly when we arrived. The staff was VERY attentive throughout the meal - all seem to pitch in to make sure every table had what it needed but they did it almost invisibly. We had feta and olives, fresh bread, grilled calamari, cajun salmon pasta, salmon dinner, grape leaves, and falafel. All of our food was delicious.

    We went to Agora Taverna for a pre-Mother’s Day dinner. We try to avoid the Mother’s Day crowds. The restaurant was busy but not full and we were able to get a table away from the busiest area. Service was wonderful, as always. We started with several appetizers, a selection of Greek spreads with nice warm pita bread, spinach pie, and the Villager salad. The spinach pie was the best I have ever had. For main courses we had moussaka and grilled calamari. The calamari was tender, not chewy. It is always a favorite of mine. Entrees came with string beans and the best lemon potatoes. It is worth a trip to this restaurant just for the potatoes. I have had them at other Greek restaurants and these blow the others away. I used to try to recreate them at home but it is just not possible. We were too full after all that food for dessert but we’re brought a complimentary piece of galacktoboureko. It was light and creamy and hit the spot. We definitely plan to return soon. No need to wait for a special occasion for a meal at Agora Taverna.

    The freshest fish and other seafood that you will find. Prepared with simple Mediterranean methods intended to enhance rather than hide the flavors of the seafood.

    This local gem has continually offered excellent Greek cuisine at pretty reasonable prices. Their portions are always very generous and you walk away feeling full and not ripped off. The food is light, very tasty and plentiful in case you are looking to share plates with another adult. The service is always very helpful, quick and attentive. Excellent choice if you're ever in Forest Hills.
