We went, by chance, when there was live music which was fabulous - but even before the music started the atmosphere was great, food was delicious and the staff really helpful.

Cool and comfortable on the rooftop, even on a super hot day. Generous portions. Try the greek sangria. Loved the gyro, stuffed peppers. Wish I lived here to go back for other creative sounding menu items.

This was our first visit to Taverna Agora, and it was an excellent experience. Great quality authentic Greek food. Lovely outdoor patio on the upstairs level, which I recommend if the weather is good. We look forward to dining here again soon.

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.
