Great food and portions, love having brunch here with friends!
Had a nice experience. I would go back again. Lots of options on the menu and I enjoyed what I ordered.
I need to come to Agora more often - it never disappoints. In fact, this time it offered a pleasant surprise - 1/2 price bottle of wine Monday! Great way to make an excellent dinner with good friends even better. Everything we ordered was delicious. Absolutely loved the Peynirli Pide - yummy flatbread with goat cheese, mozzarella and dates. The cauliflower was amazing. Shrimp and kalamar cooked to perfection. You simply must try this place! It's a lovely restaurant, our server was excellent and the food is divine.
Best waitress ever, bottomless brunch is a great value and food is great.
Hi! Who was your waitress? We love recognizing our staff for review shoutouts! Let us know please! And thank you for the wonderful feedback... Hope to have you join us again real soon!
Tapas style. Food all excellent. Diverse. Met some dietary restrictions. Service superb. Prices reasonable.
A nice place serving Mediterranean food. Very tasty food. The appetizers are served in pretty small portions. Meat dishes are great too.
Tara, Saganaki, pide, Lamb riblets— all outstanding
Bronzino—ggod, but small portion
Will return soon.
A delicious brunch with amazing service.
As far as Turkish food goes, it was pretty good! The price point is a little higher than I imagined. My only "problem" is that we were sat on the side room, which is not as cool as the main room
I took my wife here for Valentine's day. She is a vegetarian, and she loves Middle Eastern food. We have been to many great Middle Eastern restaurants in metropolitan DC. Agora surpassed all expectations, far better than any of the great reviews I had read. We ate upstairs, and I found the ambience perfect. The menu is large, varied and interesting. We sampled quite a few dishes and we loved all of our choices. The service was perfect, not easy on such a busy night for the the staff. My highest recommendation.
Thank you so much for your kind words! Our team works real hard to make special days be extra memorable. So glad to have surpassed your expectations. We look forward to having you dine with us again real soon!
They sat us upstairs right next to the stairs.
There were other much nicer tables but the server who sat us did not move us, even after I requested.
The food is always good, but tonight it was exceptionally good!
We were a group of 6 people from different countries. We asked for a quiet table, and they very nicely settled us into a table in a bit of an alcove. The food was delicious and the setting allowed our conversation to flow freely. Thanks much for a wonderful evening!
Met some work colleagues and had a great time. Enjoyed the food, ambiance and service were good. Good all around experience.
LOVE this place. great food, great service! so much fun.
Agora is one of the best brunch place in DC. Always excellent service and food is delicious.
Great food and service!
One of our favorite places for brunch
Waitress was not helpful or informative that the plates are very small (French toast is the size of a small slice of cheese!) She did not bring our check in a timely manner and then told us the machine was broken and made us wait 30 min without complimentary coffee or anything. Not impressed by the food and noise level was high. Would not recommend.
Best bottomless brunch in town! The goat cheese is to die for!
Great experience for both brunch and dinner. Accessible, but also great for people who want to try new things.
We were celebrating my niece’ s and also her partner’s birthdays. The service was friendly,the food was very good and they even brought out a complimentary birthday dessert which was lovely.
A charming neighborhood spot. The food was wonderful! We sat at the bar and Antonio took such amazing care of us! His knowledge of the menu was impressive and the his recommendations were spot on! We will certainly be back again!
Everyone at Agora is very nice. Thank you very much!
This was my first time at AGORA. I had a 6:15 reservation on a Monday night. The place was nearly empty when we arrived, but filled up quickly. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that bottles of wine were half price on Mondays! The food and service were excellent. The baklava was to die for. I will be back for sure.
Delicious! Great for a group of friends!
Let me tell you guys, my server, who was Turkish, let us lives our best life at brunch. He gave all the best recommendations, was very honest about what was trash verses what was delicious and picked out choices from start to finish. Couldn’t have been more pleased. A great dining experience from top to bottom with amazing food
Felt pressured by wait staff to do unlimited brunch. Certain dishes were forgotten land not brought out until after we reminded them. Food was decent, but the overall experience was frustrating.
Great choice for a group with varied tastes or restrictions with the opportunity to taste many different items.
Noisy by my standards, lively by other's.
Be aware there isn't really an option for a traditional "meal" --protein, veg, salad--you create the combos yourself.
I could survive on the bread and dips alone.
We have gone here for years but have not been for many moths. Sadly, it was not as good as it used to be. Still good but not as good. One big disappointment was the change of the bread they used to serve. The new bread is just not as good - at all. They were still serving their restaurant week menu. Small portions.
This was my first visit and I hope to return in the future. My lunch partner and I shared 5 dishes: hummus, baba ghanouj, falafel, cauliflower, and kofte. All the food was great; the bread was wonderful. My only criticism is that the waiter recommended 3-4 dishes per person, which would have been WAY too much food. We had trouble finishing 5 between us.
This is our go to restaurant. Love the food,never disappointed.
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!
