This restaurant was next door to Holiday Inn downtown. Food was great. General Manager stopped by table to find out how we liked food and a what brought us to Raleigh. Would highly recommend this great place if you are visiting Raleigh.

My husband & I recently visited the restaurant for an anniversary date. The rooftop dining experience was amazing. The service was friendly and attentive and the overall atmosphere was just phenomenal. That is where the positives end for me. I was not at all impressed...More

I ate here twice while on business in the area. I especially enjoyed the rustic, Greek-inspired ambiance. The food was tasty and the service efficient.

Very fresh food, excellent fish, everything was seasoned well. I know about Greek food and this restaurant has many authentic items. They have very nice outdoor dining. It is large and had 2 separate wedding parties while we were there. The service was fantastic also.

Taverna Agora for dinner was boringly mediocre. The roof is a very nice place to eat, the wait staff was helpful but the food on a Tuesday night was painfully unremarkable.More

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.
