Came here for a dinner with my girls. The apps were good. The food was okay. Drinks were not very impressive so I would suggest getting a bottle of wine to share if you have another wine drinker with you.

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.

Agora Taverna is our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood. Why? The food is always fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff are lovely, attentive and knowledgable. The owner strives to make his place comfortable, homey and attractive. It's beautiful inside and out. Thank you Peter!

Crab cakes and lamb chops were delicious! We were disappointed that they ran out of raw oysters but we ordered the Greek salad instead. It was very good.

Lovely atmosphere and great service! It was our date night and we wanted to try out this restaurant near our home. We had the "Spinach Pie" (aka spanakopita) which was delicious and a very large portion for two people as an appetizer. I ordered the Seafood Pasta which was incredibly yummy and my husband had the special Orzo Seafood plate. Plenty of seafood on both dishes. A little on the pricey side but great for a "treat yourself" date night.

The appetizer special was a feta cheese with sesame and figs and olives. It was very tasty, and my friends enjoyed it very much as well. I ordered the seafood pasta which was heavy on the seafood, which is always a welcome surprise, though it was just ok. The shrimp was nice and crisp, the squid and mussels were plentiful. We also enjoyed a nice red wine sangria.

First time at Agora Taverna, when we arrived the owner greeted us at the door and asked if we had a reservation. We did and he gave us a few choices to seat. The food was great, everything we tried we liked, including my 11 and 8 year old children whom loved the food. We are definitely going back.

Excellent Greek food! The portions tend to be on the large side and most of the prices seem fair. We ordered a salad and three appetizers and walked away stuffed. The service is very good. There was no sense of being rushed. Highly recommend.

It's been awhile since I've dined at Agora Taverna. The service was great. Our waitress/server was so patient with me because my friends were extremely tardy. I was able to wait sitting at the table.
When my friends finally arrived, we had the hummus appetizer. Entrees were the chicken breast, filet of sole and the seafood pasta. All was really good.

One of my favorite spots in Forest Hills for dining out. Now that we can make a reservation it's even better. Food is always good as well as the service. The music however is a little loud and we have to raise our voices to hear each other. But, this won't stop us from going back.

We had been very happy customers of Agora for years, but felt this time that we we were in a completely different restaurant. The familiar faces of the owners and hospitality were gone. Quality was down and prices were up. Seafood was tasteless. Only bright spot was the excellent Greek salad, but that’s not enough to bring us back. Very disappointing because it had been competitive with the Greek restaurants in Astoria; not now.

Family visit

We love Agora. The food is excellent. The service is mostly superior although this visit we had to wait a long time for 2 items that someone forgot to bring us. The place is nice looking but a bit noisy. Mostly we have no major complaints and will certainly return.
