The service was very slow. We ordered dinner at 6:00 and didn’t get out until 9:00. It was exhausting!

We had a great meal at Estia. We had booked outdoors before we knew we would be having a heatwaVe. The hostess was wonderful and found an indoor table for us. We shared the octopus appetizer-it could easily feed three. It was tender and so delicious. I ordered the lamb chops for dinner and they were wonderful. They came with Greek potatoes, my husband said they were the best potatoes he’s ever had. Again, a large portion. My husband had a whole fish which was good but not worth the price. We finished the dinner with a scoop each of three refreshing and delicious gelatos. We really enjoyed our evening and would love to return.

Great food and service. The Greek salad was so fresh. It had the best feta cheese. This is not a quiet place if you are looking for that.

Excellent food. We've never had a bad experience or a bad meal at Estia. Be careful! You will fill up on appetizers and salad. Leave room for the Swordfish souvlaki!

Food was great. Service was good and despite the rain, outdoor dining experience was great. Courses were brought out in a timely manner. Restaurant week menu was worth it. Will definitely be returning

The hostess accommodated to move us from outside to inside due to the weather. Service was good though it felt a bit rushed. The Black Sea bass w capers was cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the staff. Will return.

Visited during restaurant week & had a nice time. Food was good, but was surprised no sides were on our entrees, but food was delicious. We also all enjoyed our cocktails. Service a little sparse, but otherwise an awesome experience

Estie has always been excellent and this visit is no exception. The three of us all had the octopus appetizer and the portion was huge and it was the tastiest and most tender I have ever had. We all had lamb chops for the main course and Baklava for dessert and they too were excellent. Service was friendly plus.

My group of friends and I wanted to try out this place during restaurant week, and it DID NOT disappoint! The food on the restaurant week menu was of similar presentation and quality as if you were to order from the typical menu there. They give you unlimited warm bread with hummus, and I highly recommend the charcoal grilled octopus, the estia chips, and the lamb chops...they were absolutely delightful! The waiters were attentive, and they served our meals quickly one after another.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday with dinner with friends and the food and service were amazing, as always. Our server was very attentive and made sure we were content every course of the meal. We also loved that we didn’t feel rushed through the courses. We have been other places that bring things out one after another but the spacing for the multiple courses we ordered was fantastic. Really enjoyed the meal!

I have never had a meal at Estia that was less than outstanding. The lamb chops are always plentiful and delicious. The Greek specialties are all wonderful and should not be missed. For some reason the service was slow. I suspect that the wait staff was diminished by Covid. The food was as special as always. Can’t recommend Estia highly enough. It should also be noted for future dining the Estia has a pre theater menu which allows for an amazing dinner and time to get to your seat at the Academy or the Kimmel Center before the curtain comes up. All in all Estia is one of Philadelphia’s best.

The atmosphere was romantic, and cozy, but dark for our liking. Felt like we were forgotten about many times and noticed that we kept getting our food/drinks after others. Our server was kind and the food was tasty. $15 for a glass of basic wine was their cheapest, no value there.
Okay experience, but glad we went for restaurant week and didn’t pay “full price” for this place.
