I wish I could give 10 stars instead of 5...its that good. Our server Saki was very personable, attentive and knowledgeable. Everything was beyond delicious....the Arugula Salad, Stuffed cheese calamari, the Lavraki fish with capers, the salmon, had a side of Spinach rice...awesome. Excellent ambiance and service

Decided to try Estia's theater menu with friends before heading to the Opera and we were blown away yet again. All of their poplar dishes are on the three course ($33 per person) menu. From the minute we arrived until we left the service was impeccable. The ambiance takes you back to Greece and the food never disappoints. I recommend... More

I have never had a bad meal at Estia, and their restaurant week selections are the best. I try to bring my family at least once a year, and we are never disappointed.

This is my first time at Estia and what a great experience. The occasion was an office party for 14 people. The Wine Room was booked for our party and seated the group comfortably. For appetizers we ordered the grilled shrimp and octopodi (grilled octopus). Both were fresh and prepared with subtle flavorings, nothing was overpowering in the seasonings used.... More

We went the last day of Restaurant week. We the sea bass and lamb. Both were outstanding. These dishes are there signature dishes. We paid $35 for a three course meal, that is normally the price for the main course itself. For the appetizer we had octopus and a Greek salad. The tomatoes on the Greek salad were incredible. The...

Have an early dinner from the restaurant week specials before a concert at the Kimmel Center. Food was terrific. From a perfectly prepared Tanqueray martini followed by a wonderful Greek salad with bread and hummous the starters set a perfect tone. My wife had the sea bass while I was lucky to choose lamb chops. Large, marinated, tender and delicious.... More

It feels like a trip to Greece to just walk inside of Estia. The hardest part about eating here is choosing between so many great options. The only concern is that the level of service has been steadily sinking. It is amazing how bad it has become over the past year. I hope that they fix things to match the... More

It's been a few years since we last dined at Estia & sorry to say, remain underwhelmed. While the menu is interesting and the green lentil soup was tasty, the quality of the food doesn't merit the hefty price tags; the cavernous space is dark and gloomy; and the service was sloppy and slow, Some good news is there are...

We came for an early dinner and were lucky to be seated even though we did not have a reservation. The food is great, the service is efficient, and the ambience superb. Great collection of wines. Everything from the hummus to seafood to the lamb chops is delicious.
