                                                      ALWAYS great food. Spinach pie is good. I wish they would not serve lemon potatoes and string beans with the entrees.

                                                      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.

                                                      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.

                                                      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.

                                                      Great food but the place needs better insulation. It is all windows that the air comes through.
