Agora Taverna - Forest Hills
Outstanding dining experience with the freshest ingredients and impeccable service !
Great Restaurant, loved everything
Lovely atmosphere and great service! It was our date night and we wanted to try out this restaurant near our home. We had the "Spinach Pie" (aka spanakopita) which was delicious and a very large portion for two people as an appetizer. I ordered the Seafood Pasta which was incredibly yummy and my husband had the special Orzo Seafood plate. Plenty of seafood on both dishes. A little on the pricey side but great for a "treat yourself" date night.
Excellent local place. Owner operated who cares. Great guy! Reminds me of the great customer service of local neighborhood. Food is outstanding
The appetizer special was a feta cheese with sesame and figs and olives. It was very tasty, and my friends enjoyed it very much as well. I ordered the seafood pasta which was heavy on the seafood, which is always a welcome surprise, though it was just ok. The shrimp was nice and crisp, the squid and mussels were plentiful. We also enjoyed a nice red wine sangria.
First time at Agora Taverna, when we arrived the owner greeted us at the door and asked if we had a reservation. We did and he gave us a few choices to seat. The food was great, everything we tried we liked, including my 11 and 8 year old children whom loved the food. We are definitely going back.
Excellent Greek food! The portions tend to be on the large side and most of the prices seem fair. We ordered a salad and three appetizers and walked away stuffed. The service is very good. There was no sense of being rushed. Highly recommend.
Always a treat!
Excellent food and excellent service. Great value.
Great food but the place needs better insulation. It is all windows that the air comes through.
The food here is consistently Fresh and delicious! I have been many times and always bring any friends visiting and it is always a hit!
The food was good but for a local resturant it has gotten very expensive .... it was pretty empty and freezing cold in there ....
Our 3rd time visiting here Always delish. Great service
My family and I have been several times and have always had a wonderful experience.
Everything about the food is good. Had the tuna entree. Very fresh.
The food is always good. The seafood is fresh and cooked perfectly. The service is friendly and not to overbearing.
The staff and food were exceptional. This neighborhood gem always delivers on taste and service.
It's been awhile since I've dined at Agora Taverna. The service was great. Our waitress/server was so patient with me because my friends were extremely tardy. I was able to wait sitting at the table.
When my friends finally arrived, we had the hummus appetizer. Entrees were the chicken breast, filet of sole and the seafood pasta. All was really good.
The food is excellent. Great atmosphere and service. Fish is wonderful
One of my favorite spots in Forest Hills for dining out. Now that we can make a reservation it's even better. Food is always good as well as the service. The music however is a little loud and we have to raise our voices to hear each other. But, this won't stop us from going back.
We had been very happy customers of Agora for years, but felt this time that we we were in a completely different restaurant. The familiar faces of the owners and hospitality were gone. Quality was down and prices were up. Seafood was tasteless. Only bright spot was the excellent Greek salad, but that’s not enough to bring us back. Very disappointing because it had been competitive with the Greek restaurants in Astoria; not now.
Very expensive and the food was So So.
I've had much better for this price.
Absolutely loved our meal, the restaurant, and especially George, our wonderful waiter. HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.
Food a litter too oily but good service and nice atmosphere
We love Agora. The food is excellent. The service is mostly superior although this visit we had to wait a long time for 2 items that someone forgot to bring us. The place is nice looking but a bit noisy. Mostly we have no major complaints and will certainly return.
Service from the minute we walked in, through dinner was outstanding. The food - incredible. I hosted visitors and they were thrilled and very impressed. Great time. We’ll be back.
Our appetizers and entrees we're prepared very well. We had grilled octopus, grilled calamari, crab cake and the assorted meat platter. An interesting note is that an entree of crab cake, for example, has one crab cake as does the appetizer. However it is served with one side vegetable. Many of the entrees are served in the same manner vis-a-vis there appetizer counterpart.
The restaurant is very loud which makes it difficult to hear one another. In addition since our last visit the prices have increased more than their competitors in the area. This makes them moderate to highly priced for most restaurant-goers.
We were seated no problem, our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious ! Only reason it did not get 5 stars because the utensils were not clean (even the replacements). Overall, it was a great brunch with my friend!
Amazing experience at AGORA. The food is ridiculously fresh and the service is out of this world.
Food and drinks were delicious. Service was good, but waiter was a little too pushy on what we should order. We would definitely go back. All in all it was a great experience.
As usual, Agora Taverna, hits the nail on the head. We had a family gathering there this past Saturday, q quick get together with family in town for a short period of time. All had brunch and everyone was very pleased. The food and service was very good and staff was attentive. Would recommend to friends and family!
Expensive for the quality of the food! Not very authentic Greek food.. Won’t be going back for sure
Total hit! Service was spot on, including a big welcome from the owner and warm smile/greeting from other staff members.
Saganaki is perfect to share. Prawns and Black Bass were delicious and green beans which seem to be a miss so often when dining out, we’re cooked to perfection. Thanks for a great dinner!
Great for brunch. Good, friendly and consistent service. Great food choices with terrific value. I'm a regular!
Fantastic food!!! You pay for great quality. Heads and shoulders above any other reasturant in forest hills or surrounding area!!
Food and service was awesome. My wife and I have been here several times. The Greek spread is #1!
Excellent Greek cuisine with exceptional service! The feta cheese appetizer is amazing!!
Good food and service. But I would maybe switch the menu around a little. Change it up.
Horrible it was a Mother’s Day dinner and they took it upon themselves to add a 20% tip to my check without giving me the option to chose. I thought that was inappropriate and I will not be returning for the second time.
I am disappointed that they don’t make the melitzanosalata anymore!!! The best I’ve tasted yet! Hopefully they’ll bring it back. One of my main reasons for going there.
