This was a very reasonably priced restaurant with excellent food. It has an authentic and family feel. Looks great, tastes great. My server was just awesome. I asked if they had an olive plate appetizer, they did not so he just brought me some olives.

Although the basic setting is attractive, the restaurant has tables too jammed together for comfort -- especially the roof-top garden area -- which is billed as the most desired place to be seated. Tables are too closely spaced for customer or server comfort. The noise...More

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.

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.
