Over the years, business has taken me to Athens scores of times, and I long ago fell in love with both Greek wine and the Greek kitchen. My partner and I search out Greek restaurants all over the US, and heartily recommend this one to all who share our love of Greek cuisine. The setting is warm and comfortable; when we visited, there were a couple of large groups, couples on obvious dates, and individual diners. And this was at the height of the dinner hour. I should add that we parked on the street, which in the evening was free of charge.
Taverna Agora has an extensive menu of traditional appetizers, so we decided to explore this element of the menu and forego a main course. We started with an excellent tzatziki, and then moved on to a superb saganaki flambeed at the table. Dolmades and keftedes came next. We strongly, strongly recommend the keftedes, although the dolmades were quite tasty. Spanakopita made for a light finish, enabling us to wolf down a traditional and delicious baklava at the end.
We shared a bottle of retsina. I would have preferred something much more resinated (Kourtaki is my top choice), but my partner thought it was just right.
With tip, the meal totaled out at a little over $100, but about $40 of this was for the wine. We thought that, in terms of both quality and quantity, our dinner was quite reasonable priced.
