The staff at Agora accommodated our large group so wonderfully. The food was all absolutely delicious! Like a tapas portion, so perfect for sharing and trying new things. So good. Worth a visit, for sure.

Tapas- type of restaurant. Small dishes which were all delicious. Fast and nice service. Lots of people so the noice level was quite high, which means that it is not a restaurant for small intimate talks!

My wife brought me here for my birthday. We had a great time. Maria, our server was great. Friendly, informative and responsive. Started out with traditional Turkish raki, an unsweetened, anise-flavored alcoholic drink that is popular in Turkey, Greece. Maria recommended cutting it with a little water and sipping throughout the meal. It was very good. For food we started... More

The weather was perfect for a February night in Washington DC so we decided to eat on the patio. We were greeted quickly and very pleasantly. As matter of fact all of the service was very pleasant and efficient. We ordered several small dishes and Ottoman rice which is really quite good...The pita was piping hot and delicious and all...

I love going to Agora. The food is wonderful, the service is good and never disappoints. The food is so delicious and flavorful. There is always something new to try. I chose to celebrate my birthday at Agora the other day. It was fabulous as always.

We visited here on a Saturday night during Restaurant week & we were thrilled with our experience! Ishmeal was our server, and he was a delight! Super friendly, personable & welcoming. We opted for the restaurant week menu, and with 5 small plate courses, it was plenty of food! Each option was delicious, and the Turkish wine that was suggested... More

They do bottomless brunch so well! Great, quick service and delicious food as always. This is my 4th or 5th time doing bottomless brunch and it's so great for groups. A nice variety of breakfast and lunch options with a Mediterranean twist.

Randomly wound up having dinner here during a business trip to DC. We were looking for sushi and wound up at a Turkish tapas place. They were full and working off of a reservation list on a Wednesday night so that kind of told me it was going to be good. We were a little taken back by the menu... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful piece of solitude in a busy day in Washington DC. The Turkish/Middle Eastern food is simply but elegantly served in this lovely restaurant situated in a predominantly residential neighborhood in downtown DC. Great, helpful staff.
