My husband and I really enjoyed our meal here. This is a small plate type restaurant so we ordered a number of dishes to share. The portions and prices were similar to other tapas style places we've been to, and we enjoyed everything. We are mostly vegetarian but eat some fish and found a decent variety of choices on the menu. The waitress was very attentive, in a good way. She realized right away that one of our dishes had not arrived and went to check without us needing to ask about it. The place is small and the tables are somewhat cozy, so not a place for quiet or private conversation. We were glad we had a reservation, because even at 5:30 they were fairly busy. They had a pre theater special menu, which several other couples seemed to be taking advantage of. I would definitely come back again.

My boyfriend took me to Agora on our first date and it's become our go-to Valentine's Day spot. Small plates and a cozy atmosphere, perfect for getting to know someone without being overly formal. The Ottoman rice and brussel sprouts are amazing, if you don't fill up on the warm pita first!

Wonderful place for tapas-style eastern Mediterranean food. They do a great job bringing out dishes a couple at the time so you never feel overwhelmed. Also a great wine selection!

My friend and I ordered from the lunch menu. It started with three different kinds of spread, chicken kebab for main, coffee and dessert. Food and the price were both great.

We love having special dinners together here. The staff is knowledgeable about the food and which flavors work together.

They change the menu periodically as well as make variations to certain dishes to keep things fresh and new. The baklava was good but not nearly what it used to be. They used to prepare it with Orange blossom and Rose water which added as lovely softness to the end of a wonderful meal,. Also they charged from pistachio to walnut which weakened the flavor so theT
baklava tonight was good just not great.
