Excellent food with a focus on authentic family recipes. Lamb chops were cooked just as I like them. The Greek salad for 3 to 5 will supply 6 folks easy. The baklava is GREAT.

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.
