Tasty small plates. Amazing variety!
Excellent dining experience and atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Very tasty dishes. I like the fact that you get a number of small dishes so that you can taste multiple things. Their traditional Greek dishes always have a little interesting twist. It was a fun evening.
The food during Restaurant Week was amazing. We enjoyed 4 small-sized courses with excellent service. The noise level was busy but not outrageous. The only down side was that the small tables are too close together. We hope to return in nicer weather so as to enjoy the short walk from Dupont Circle and another helping of the excellent Mediterranean food.
We visited for restaurant week, and our experience was positive. The service was quick and responsive and the dishes we chose were very well prepared. We especially liked the branzino, which was very well cooked. Our critiques were minor: The bathrooms were plentiful, but could have been cleaner. The water served was simple tap water that did not appear to have been filtered at all, not something we rarely encounter in other upscale establishments. And the menu mentioned a multi-grain bread that was not served with the branzino, and while we were told it was being baked, we never did receive it with our meals. Overall, a good but not outstanding visit.
We had a splendid evening and were very ably guided through a new experience by Taylor. A lot of fun and we will do it again.
WOW! I honestly don't think that I can really begin to explain how freaking phenomenal my experience was at Agora! My server, Zeyneb was literally THE BEST server I have ever had. We came for my birthday this past Saturday and Zeynab literally was incredible! There were 13 of us in my party and she had no one helping her plus she had other tables and she was ON IT! We never had an empty glass, the tapas was always coming out - and damn did everything taste so good - I don't know how she did it, but she rocked it!! Needless to say, the entire experience was phenomenal, and I can't wait to come back - and hopefully get to sit in her table again, because she's the best! Thank you Zeyneb and Agora for literally the best experience!
Thank you so much Michele ! We've already congratulated her with a bottle of wine for the outstanding reviews she's received this past weekend! We look forward to having you and your friends dine with us again real soon! Come visit her for dinner too!
As a group of 6, with 3 vegetarians, and a couple allergies, we found Agora a wonderful fit, as we could each order several small plates to fit our particular diet/desire. The food was delicious, prompt, and prepared to perfection. The staff was attentive and friendly.
This was my second time at the restaurant and I look forward to going back. The food was wonderful .
A group of friends and I dined there for my birthday. The waiter provided us with a number of helpful ordering suggestions and the restaurant even provided me with some delicious desserts for the occasion.
This is a great place for lunch with a friend. Their lunch special is a great value - a salad or dip (they bring out just baked roti which is fabulous), a vegetable dish and a fish or meat dish and a drink all for less than $18. We ordered one lunch special and one short rib sandwich on Brioche bun. It was plenty and everything was delicious. The grilled octopus was especially good. The fries with the sandwich were a bit soggy and I thought the cauliflower was a bit salty but I will still return again and again.
Unfortunately new mgmt and new staff brought with a horrible service. Have been a regular but wont be coming back after today
The endless brunch is delicious with a great selection and great quality food and drink choices.
Poor service. Bottomless brunch. Our server rarely came by. Hard to get drink refills and someone at our table didn’t get their food until the bill came.
Absolutely great as always. Our server Zeyneb made it even better, attentive friendly service!!
Everything was flavorful, cooked to perfection and authentic.
Visited this Turkish restaurant during our trip to DC during Christmas holidays.
We had Great food, superb cocktails & fantastic service by Burak. We were so impressed, we returned next evening again and enjoyed thoroughly.
Looking forward to visiting DC again.
Very Good! Went there for Christmas Eve - it was very nice.
Great service and food
After greeting us, our wait staff explained the menu perfectly, as Agora serves “small plates”. Her recommendations were wonderful and the food was delicious. We started with hummus, pita and a glass of wine, and I then had the grilled chicken on pita and my date had the fried eggplant. Both were fabulous! We ended with Turkish coffee and the best Baklava we’ve ever tasted! Highly recommend!
Thank you so much!
Great experience and location ! Good food !
Delicious food, perfect ambiance. Have gone many times and will go back again!
Thank you Megan!
The food and ambiance were great. Our server was distracted and we waited longer than you’d expect for some of the basics like water refills.
We were at Agora for brunch. (We have dined at Agora several times, but this was our first brunch experience.) The food was tasty and imaginative. Unfortunately, it was also cold, hardly satisfying for french toast or hash. The first cup of hot water for tea had to be sent back because unidentified specks were floating in it; I didn’t drink my coffee refill because the cream, rather than dissolving into the coffee, glopped on the surface (don’t know why this happened only with the second cup.) We didn’t make a fuss because we were old friends meeting after a very long separation and wanted to concentrate on catching up, not on kitchen complaints. Oh well.
Great food and environment. Would recommend getting 3 plates per person and going with a larger group to try a lot on the menu.
Excellent cold, dry martini.
Great. Small portions so we ordered a few different things and shared. It was great.
Excellent service!! Had a great time
Overall we had a nice evening. Our waitress was excellent. She was there when we wanted to order the next set of tapas, and did not rush us through what was a leisurely meal. Me cocktail, “sticky fingers” was delicious. The food was mixed, some of it delicious, the other just average. I would return.
I’ve been dining at Agora for several years and love it. This particular visit it was very noticeable that some things had changed...smaller portions and some service slowness and repeated incorrect items brought to table.
Best bottomless brunch in DC. Highly recommend to all.
One of the best bottomless brunches in all of Washington DC.
Food was delicious! Every single small plate that they brought to the table was amazing! The fresh warm homemade pita was to die for! Can’t wait to go back!
Shareable plates so you can try everything! Delicious dinner with family.
As always, Agora did not disappoint. The food is always delicious and the service excellent!
Loved the place !
Zeyneb was attentive and took good care of us,will be back :)
Delicious food, very prompt service and affordably priced. Would recommend.
Relaxed and hip space, atmospheric, festive with excellent food. Very copious tapas! And delicious - eggplant with lamb, cauliflower and short ribs delicious. Spread sampler is a fabulous way to start meal. Rarely return to same restaurant in DC bc there are too many to try - agora is the exception. I already have my next res lined up!
This place was outstanding. I loved every dish we got. Would definitely come back again.
