Always perfect lunch spot for Kimmel performances across the street. Delicious kale salad, snapper with lentils, and baklava. It couldn’t have been better. Warm, gracious service. Inviting and comfortable space.

We went here for Valentine's Day. The service was excellent and almost all of the food was perfect. The only downside was that the Lavraki was a little fishy compared to normal. Great food and great service over all. One of our favorite Philadelphia Restaurants.

I'm sorry, but I would not recommend a friend to Estia.
I think the meal I had, LAVRAKI, was overpriced.
The waiter had convinced me to get the Lavraki, rather than the Black Sea Bass, due to how much the Black Sea Bass weighed.
However, when my meal came to the table, I was astounded at how little fish there was on my plate. I had three times as much potatoes.
My wife enjoyed her Lobster pasta. We also had calamari and then Baklava for desert. With three glasses of wine and two espressos, our bill came to just over $200. I think it was overpriced.
I shouldn't have listened to the waiter.

My wife and I visited Estia prior to a 7:00 show at the Kimmel. We arrived slightly early for our 5:30 reservation but had to wait a while as the reception area was overwhelmed with patrons. Once we were seated, we ordered from the pre-theater menu which is a good value compared to the regular menu prices. Our server was new and wasn't overly attentive so we had to ask the bus servers for assistance. Appetizers were good and came soon after ordering but our drink order didn't appear until the main course. My wife ordered the moussaka and had to send it back as it came out cold. While we were still having the main, a different server dumped the desserts at the table without forks so we asked the bus attendant for some new ones. Took a while for the check to appear and originally was going to pay with a card but the waitress was MIA again so luckily I had the cash to settle and left the money on the table. She came back as we were heading out. We had about 5 minutes to make the show even though we noted we were attending a show in the reservation and when we checked in.

I grew up with Greek food. Estia puts their own spin on this Mediterranean cuisine that is fresh and modern, yet keeps the rich essence of the dishes. You'll never have a better and fresher Greek salad! The calamari appetizer is insanely delicious, and try the moussaka for some rich comfort food.

Our party had a wonderful time on Saturday night... everything was great. Its funny you ask about the noise level... we absolutely notice how difficult it was to hear in the restaurant, we mentioned it several time during dinner. not sure if there could be a sound absorbing material added to help with this issue.

Usually love this place and can be in-and-out for a quick, well-prepared and super tasty (though not economical) meal. Not sure exactly what happened but had a lousy server experience. We were there for nearly an hour and finally flagged the (overwhelmed) server down to ask for our entrees to go. When I got the bill, there are additional items on it we had not ordered. Not great. As I say, usually have had a pleasant and positive experience. Perhaps an anomaly? The food I ate back in the office was delicious, for the record.
