Took my bestfriend here for her birthday brunch and had a great time! Food was amazing, our waiter was very attentive, our drinks were never empty, and the music was just loud enough to hear but not to keep from having conversation. Will certainly be back and definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a tapas style bottomless brunch!

Agora is a really cool place. It is one of the only places that I know of in DC that has bottomless food and drinks. It comes to around $43 including tax. You really can not find a better deal in DC for brunch. Be sure to make a reservation or it may be impossible for you to get a table for brunch. Outside seating doesn't need a reservation, but it does fill up fast.

Food is great, drinks are strong, and the overall ambiance is nice.

I recommend it to all of my friends.

Agora never fails to amaze us. Whenever we have friends visit, we take them or meet them at Agora. Their take on grilled octopus is the best in the DMV area.
If we lived near Agora, we'd be eating here every day!

I'd been given the name of the restaurant with the assurance that the meal would be great! And so it was. From the pillow pita bread to the eggplant and bronzino as well as the lamb chops we all had a delightful meal. And the service was very attentive .
We will return!

We did the Sunday brunch and it was great. Definitely worth the little splurge to try anything we wanted from the menu and bottomless mimosas! Great for a catch-up with friends. Lively atmosphere and attentive staff. Halal and vegetarian options available as well.

Wonderful service and great food. We were immediately seated after our reservation was confirmed. Mezze items were brought out within 10 minutes and we received our drink orders after sitting down. The staff was super helpful and came around multiple times to take additional orders.

Agora is almost the only restaurant that we went to during our 5 day business trip in DC because the menu was amazing and the food delicious. This is a must when staying in DC!! Get reservations because it’s so good that it is always packed! Excellent and attentive service. Make a reservation for Saturday or Sunday brunch.

Great food and really nice place. Only small drawback for us was the fast pace everything was served, though one dish at a time: we felt a bit rushed and pressed to go when usually with this type of food we enjoy taking our time and picking here and there from the plates...

Fun local place with excellent Greek/Turkish food at very reasonable prices. Service was great. Wonderful wine list from all over the world, but with a special focus on wonderful Middle Eastern wines. Close to Dupont Circle.

Bottomless Brunch - awesome selection of mezze, the servers come around and refill the drinks without prompting. The spinach and feta omelet was amazing, as was the yogurt parfait. The grilled cheese was underdone and the cheese wasn't even melted, so that was a bummer. FOUR types of eggs Benedict on the menu. I think we tried almost everything between the four of us. Great brunch spot where you can try a ton of things.

Food is great! Grilled octopus, lamb riblets, roasted brussels sprouts all solid offerings. They also have a great wine list (don't miss the Falanghina if you like dry whites). The service was SLOW but professional. Super loud on a Friday at 6 PM. We were definitely competing with the Friday happy hour crowd. I'll return for brunch and see if it quiets down a bit.

Disappointing experience. it was very hard to get service despite having a reservation and being greeted by a host (eventually). With so many great choices in the area, we opted to not eat there - since there is little points in spending money in a place where folks prefer to socialize over helping customers.

I met a friend for lunch here one day this week and was very surprised at how few diners there were. There was one large table but they weren't very noisy, and only a couple other tables. I have usually been here for dinner. Anyway, we enjoyed sharing hummus, persian rice and a white bean salad--not the most colorful meal but very tasty. I will definitely go again as it was hard narrowing down to only a few things but neither of us wanted to eat too much (e.g. the lunch special with baklava).

We took my niece and her partner out for their engagement. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and attentive. Prices are average for small plates and there were lots of choices for various needs- we had vegetarians and meat eaters among us. This was only my second visit to Agora, but I will keep coming back.

My cousins were meeting up and our server was so knowledgeable about wine choices and food. We selected a wine on her suggestion and thoroughly enjoyed it. This isn’t the place for a quick meal; however, it was perfect for what my family was looking for: an opportunity to slowly catch up over good food and wine.
