What Insiders Are Saying
Agora is often overlooked for trendier spots in Dupont, but the Mediterranean food here is pretty good. Use it for a last-minute meal.
I've now visited Agora for every meal service they offer - dinner, brunch, and most recently lunch. Um what a great little spot! The food is really good and as a nutritionist I really appreciate that they label menu items w allergens. Brunch is probably my favorite because who doesn't love an egg on... everything. The lunch special is a fantastic value and it was easy to get a table. Highly recommend for any meal!
quality of food and service declined since our last visit
We enjoyed our dinner at Agora. There are lots of small plates options to choose from --- yummy to share so many things. We had 8-10 small plates for four adults. The pita bread is warm and very good, and they will keep bringing you more upon request. Food is moderately priced, which is nice for this area. We sat outside on the patio, which we enjoyed, as it can be noisy inside at times. I would definitely go back.
Excellent food as always. We always have a great time.
Great food and atmosphere. Reasonably priced and good service.
Friendly staff . Great food , flavorful and tasty. Just the right portion.
The owner is personable.
My daughter raves her drink “adonis”
My husband loves his beer “ Mythos”
I love the distinct herb flavor of my grilled squid.
Seemed like one of the lunch orders was forgotten. Waiter not paying attention.
Eh... Been many times but this time kind of lousy all around. Won't be back for a while.
Great service. Very attentive. Food was delicious as always.
While Agora was good (especially the bottomless drink options), I have had cheaper brunches in DC with similar menu options. That said, the spreads, cheeses, and yogurt were some of the BEST I've had, and the flatbreads were unique and really tasty. I'm glad I went, but not sure if I will be heading back anytime soon when there's so many other options out there!
Service and food was excellent.
Really enjoyed the food and tapas style dining! Service was spotty throughout the night but overall had a great experience and would recommend.
I love Agora every single time I eat there. The food is really tasty and the wait staff helpful and friendly. It's fast becoming my favorite outdoor meal haunt on a beautiful day.
Best meal of my entire trip to DC. Very enjoyable.
Really enjoyed our meal! Will return.
We had a great night. Came early and stayed late visiting with friends. The food was wonderful. Small plates of incredible variety to share with friends. We will be back. So glad we found it.
Everything was just right except that some of the offerings listed in the menu were not available
fun place great food , excellent service great find
Always great. One of my favorite places to eat. Great food. Excellent service. Fun to eat outside
Really good value brunch. Strong drinks, and the food was pretty good. The flatbreads were excellent and the dips. It was a loud somewhat rowdy environment but we were looking for something energetic and fun so no complaints. The menu is very large for brunch too which is great.
My favorite brunch in DC!
We had a great experience all the dishes were delicious. We will definitely come back
Value about three and a half stars. Very fresh and good ingredients. Service very friendly and attentive. Packed! They handle kids well, too.
A long time lunch favorite, Agora was also good for dinner outside on an early spring evening. I am pleased that it has become so popular, even though it is now very crowded. Very good mezze and excellent service.....
Great food...loved it. We had a wonderful variety on the table and shared.
Excellent food a bit cramped and loud but so tasty
Brunch fit for a sultan. Bottomless everything really is the way to go here
Very good, a little pricing, very noisy (not a bad thing) quick & great service.
I can't rate AGORA highly enough. My fiance and I went to dinner to try it out for the first time as we are considering having them cater our wedding reception. We expected to have a 5-min chat with the manager where she would recommend a few dishes and we would be left to our own devices for the rest of dinner. This could not have been farther from what actually happened. Peter, one of the managers, came over to say hello, talk to us about the restaurant and some of the food as well as give us recommendations and get us started with drinks, at which point Mehtap came over and discussed with us at length the ins and outs of the menu, answered all of our questions, and gave very constructive, tasteful feedback on our menu ideas. The food is in a class all its own - everything was absolutely divine. From the constant flow of pita with which to sample the dips to the perfectly charred chicken kebabs served with clouds of garlic bliss...if I could live inside the restaurant I wouldn't hesitate. Highly recommend!
Wait staff was painfully bad
I always enjoy eating at Agora. The food is excellent with so many flavors... especially source in each dish makes it unique experience. It's not just a food it's a soul. Bravo Agora and its Lebanese Chef.
The food was OK but really expensive for the amount you were given. That is, you can get this kind of food in any Mediterranean restaurant but in much lower cost. Charging $14 for a tiny piece of Branzino (over a piece of bread) makes no sense. Charging $3 per Falafel ball (dry and small) again makes no sense.
A surprise treat. Food was delicious. Service was wonderful. We absolutely will be back and have suggested it to friends.
Wow where do I start. The food was absolutely amazing. The staff were so attentive and friendly. One of the best dinning experiences I’ve had in a long time. Highly recommend.
Fantastic cuisine! Pricey but worth it. Would recommend it.
Always very good and nicely displayed on the plate.
Excellent service and delicious food
Very good Levantine food. Sharing last are just the right size.
This was my fourth time at Agora and I always have a great time. The bottomless brunch is amazing and with great friends you’re guaranteed a great time.
