We had a lovely, quiet dinner for two with warm, attentive service. The atmosphere is lively but not overly noisy. We had 5 tapas selections and wine. Each dish was distinctive, well-prepared and presented, and delicious. The staff were eager to share information about the dishes without being intrusive. The cost was moderate. Altogether a very nice evening!

Great place with a nice wine list. Some overpriced wines make the experience a bit...esclusive. But the place is worth a visit.

My friend and I are pregnant but they wouldn’t adjust the price for the all inclusive brunch. We only wanted unlimited food. Besides that the food is amazing at agora! It is one of my favorite dc spots!

Great food! had a business lunch here on a Friday and it was great. The noise level wasn't too bad once we got used to it, it's not noisy, but louder than I was thinking it would be.

Love the food so it was a perfect birthday brunch spot. We got there right at 11 and it was pretty quiet so the service was fast and really on point. However the 12 o clock rush came in and you could tell they were struggling. It took over 30min for us to get an order of the French toast and when it did finally show up it was cold and mushy. The plate they sent out to replace it was warm hot and delicious. If you go, get there early and put in orders for the items on the back of the brunch menu first- dips etc are faster to come out when it gets busy!

Good mezes and decent, interesting wines, that are a bit off the beaten path--Sicily, Lebanon, etc. Service friendly and quick, but don't go here is you want a lot of room to spread out and if you want a quiet place. Nice buzz, and plenty busy. Enjoyed it!

Service was disorganized with food coming out at different times. The ice cream was nearly melted before the dessert it was to be served with arrived. Food was decidedly mediocre, particularly the Kalamar (calamari).
