I can't imagine a better spot for amazing Greek food in Raleigh. We sat on the patio and enjoyed a lovely afternoon of shared plated and delightful Greek specialties. The trio of dips with hummus was my favorite and I can't wait to come back!

After sitting for hours in meetings this is a nice walk through the shopping area. The food was excellent and the server was very knowledgeable. Next to Holiday Inn.

Stopped by here for lunch and dinner and was not disappointed. Food fresh and flavoursome. Service good but could have been faster. Pricing ok.

This is a casual restaurant near downtown Raleigh. All of the food we had was delicious! We started with hummus with pita and a half carafe of wine. The carafe is in a small pitcher that looked like it held about 1 1/2 cups. The...More

I was looking forward to great Greek food but it was a total disappointment. The atmosphere feels cheap and the seats are uncomfortable. The wine selection was not good. I sampled a few and couldn't find one I liked. We ordered the Greek Spreads Trio....More

This restaurant is a gem of the local area. I went here on a date a few times and enjoyed myself. The food quality was high, and the server I had was willing to explain any food I has never heard of. It is Mediterranean,...More

Taverna Agora is perfect for a summer rooftop dinner with good friends. The service and ambience were excellent. Try the Greek appetizers and the calamari.

Description
Taverna Agora is an authentic Greek kitchen & bar where friends & family enjoy good wine, eat wonderfully prepared, simple food and relax. The restaurant is reminiscent of gathering places found in Greece, with old world flavors and rustic roots. However, Taverna Agora expands beyond the traditional agora with a few modern flares, including hand-crafted cocktails, a gourmet marketplace and Sunday brunch.
