I wanted to find somewhere in downtown Raleigh where we could host a bridal shower for women of all ages (our group had age 12 to 96!). The 20-somethings were headed out afterwards to South Glenwood for some fun. We could not have chosen better....More

Good food-Good service and great desert-what more could you want? They have a meal that comes with a live flame-I took the founder of NAPSTER and another CEO Billionaire friend who loved this place.

Right next to my hotel on a rainy cold night I step in and the smells and music transported me right back to Greece. Very friendly staff and good food.

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.
