The best Greek Food ever! Me and my boyfriend went to celebrate a very special occasion. We ordered the Estia signature platter , of lamb chops & shrimp over lemon potatoes and delicious green beans and a whole fish Bronzino that our server Dimitri very nicely deboned for us. Everything was grilled to perfection and the fish was topped with this really yummi Lemon sauce. I don't know what to say, Explosion of flavors! Outstanding. The staff is very nice and welcoming. We had a great great great time. They sure made our special occasion, very much special. We couldn't be happier. Im really glad we found this gem of Boca Raton. We will definitely be back.
Thank you to everyone!

Me and my family of four went to Estia on a quiet monday night. As we arrived we were greeted by the Owner Nikolas who then proceeded to sit us to our table. We started with the Grilled octopus and the spanakopita along with some grilled calamari, and we then finished off with Lamb chops and the Stuffed salmon. I couldnt believe how good everything tasted. We overall had a great experience at Estia and would certaintly go back.

We had the patio to ourselves on a warm evening. Excellent service! The best fresh pita and hummus complimentary. We both chose chicken...a half roasted bird, which was gigantic, and boneless breast with champagne sauce. Sides were green beans and potatoes or rice. Very good.

Estia is our "go to" restaurant and I must say, a favorite. The menu is extensive, the ambiance is comfortable, casual and inviting and the service always makes us feel like we are part of the family. The food is always consistent, and very good. There are restaurants that you only go to for very special occasions...restaurants that feel a step above fast food, and then, there are restaurants that make you feel like you cooked a great dinner at home with friends and family. Estia is THAT restaurant.

Our family really enjoys dining at Estia. There is something for everyone. My personal favorites are the hummus, tsaziki, village salads and the lamb chops. Their fish specials are excellent- very fresh and well prepared. Desserts are yummy as well.

The service is also very good- pleasant, friendly staff who really aim to please.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you like Greek food you will be especially pleased!

On a quite night, we tried Estia for the first time. We like Greek food and hadn't intended to order so much but we did. The house wine was especially delicious, allowing us a relaxing start. We then shared a Greek Salad with an abundance of very crisp cucumbers and ripe good tomatoes. My lamb chops were perfectly cooked, medium rare with seasoning that was addictive. My dinner companion had the Branzino which was the best he had ever eaten. We can't wait to go back and order the same dishes. Nick our server was delightful as was the owner.

I like this restaurant, but this time I found the green beans had too much oil, and the overall dinner too rich. The hummus is good, so was service, but I liked Raffina better for Greek food.

We had a lovely outside table and enjoyed a bottle of Greek white wine. Loved their fresh pita and hummas. We shared a small village salad to start... beautiful tomatoes, cakes, red onions and feta...Dinners were swordfish with mussels and salmon grilled with olive oil and lemon. Portions were large. Excellent service by Maria. A very nice evening.

We had the lamb souvlaki. The meat should have been tenderized in a lemon, olive oil, garlic and rosemary marinade. The meat was tough and not a good quality. The service was very courteous. The chocolate baklava was delicious. The location is good but eating outdoors there is a lot of traffic on the road.

I usually don't write reviews but I hope the owner reads this. I have come to this restaurant many times and have always come away happy. Last night was not a good experience, not so much by the food but the attitude of the owner. The main courses last night were awful. This has never happened here before so I'm not sure what happened. I got Pork Chops which were as tough as leather and I could not cut with a steak knife and my girl friend got Bronzino which was so bony it was uneatable. I will be fair and say the appetizers were excellent. My main problem I had was the attitude of the owner where I got up from my table so I can speak to him, in a very calm and nice way. Instead of being nice and apologizing, he just kept on telling me how much money he's going to lose and if I knew how much per pound he was paying for the food. I told him I'm a loyal customer and pointed out I'm actually being very nice to him where he proceeded to say if I wasn't nice, he wouldn't give me a discount. Although being treated pretty bad by this owner, I kept my cool and walked back to my table. This is not how you treat a customer, let alone a loyal one. You apologize and ask the customer what can I do to make you happy. You don't argue with them and tell them how much money you're losing, which he said $100 which is ridiculous. Despite all this, I'll give this restaurant another chance because it's always been good. I just hope in the future the owner changes the way he treats the customer if they're not happy.

Everything was great. Our waiter was fantastic and the food was prepared faultlessly. My only negative comment regards the wine list. Great Greek food but NO GREEK WINE. When we asked for a Greek wine it was made available but at a premium price. I believe a great GREEK restaurant like Estia should offer more Greek wines. They can skip the belly dancer routine also. It adds nothing to the dining experience.

Arrived from Philadelphia an my daughter who lives in Boca Raton suggested we visit her favorite Greek restaurant. The suggestion was a very good one as I found not only authentic Greek cuisine also a friendly informative owner in Nick and a great dining experience. I look forward to my return visit. The lamb chops were perhaps the best chops ever!
