The classy ambiance and delish food is worth every $$$ here! We were lucky enough to get a last minute spot on Open table for Valentine’s Day, which turned out to be fabulous. The lamb chops, plaki entree (if you love fish) is a must try! For dessert, we called for the honey walnut cake and omg it was simply incredible- we even took 1 to go! ☺️A great place to hangout for couples, families or even a big group of friends, Estia truly lives up to its name, service and ambiance!

My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day last year and loved it so much we decided we had to do it again this year! We had been hesitant to book inside dining but estia did a fantastic job with covid guidelines and the service and food were out of this world! We both come from Greek heritage and can be picky about Greek food and this place does not disappoint. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Had our best meal yet at Estia. The Greek wines available by the glass were excellent. Octopus is very tasty. Wife loved the lamb and I had the Lavraki whole fish which was delish. Grilled vegetables were great, especially the eggplant. Highly recommend!

Great dinner. The saganaki and the Lamb Chops are a must. African prawns are a great addition to any entree. Service is phenomenal if you have Sagi as your waiter. He is the best.

This was our first time dining here since COVID started. We were pretty disappointed with service and with overall outside sitting arrangements. The prices certainly went up which is completely understandable, however the quality of service and food had to be adjusted accordingly.

Delicious food, felt rushed by service, we had a reservation for 730 but when we arrived they said the kitchen was closing at 7:30 so we had to place our orders ASAP. The restaurant only had 4 other tables finishing up so I am sure they were closing early but put a damper on the experience a little! Regardless I def recommend dining here, food and drinks were amazing !!

My third time dining at Estia but the first time for my family on Saturday evening at 4:30pm. Before dining in I made sure to make a reservation on OPENTABLES. (AWARE OF COVID RESTRICTIONS) I made the reservation at 2:15 for 4 adults.( Wanting to make a reservation for 7 but prompting me to call the restaurant because Opentables wouldn't allow a table for more than 4). I made sure to place in the note section that I was bringing 5 adults and 2 children and was wondering if they were able to accommodate us because of COVID-19 restrictions. I left my number for someone to give me a call back. Around 2:45 I received a call back from Monica letting me know that she saw my note. I made sure to confirm with her that I will be bringing 5 adults and I will need 2 high-chairs for the kids and if this was allowed? She made me aware that they were heat systems placed on the floor and was concerned of the highchairs and potentially the kids burning their legs. I thanked her for her consideration and told her the 2nd highchair can even sit on a chair because he is 3 years old. She told me that she will fit the 2 high-chairs in the back of the table and 5 chairs.

I was all set to come at 4:30 and when I did it was a disaster. First and foremost, the table wasn't even set with the proper amount of chairs. There was a table set for 3 and 2 highchairs. The man was arguing with me stating that COVID restrictions only allow 4 people to sit on a table. I told him I completely UNDERSTAND and RESPECT the restrictions that were placed throughout the whole STATE, and told him I was very confused on why Monica stated over the phone that she was able to accommodate my family of 5 and 2 highchairs for the kids. He kept insisting that it was my fault and didn't even apologize. He made a whole scene with other people dining and I was completely embarrassed. I knew that I took all the measures on the phone with Monica and made sure I was allowed to dine outside with the amount of people

Had a wonderful time at Estia. I absolutely love this restaurant it is truly one of my happy places. I took my best friend out for her 30th since with COVID things have to be small. What a wonderful slice of time where we got to worry about the stresses of the world and got to enjoy our absolute favorite meal on earth, thats right, those estia chips and lamb chops! nothing can bring my heart peace and happiness quite like a dinner with my best friend and lamp chops in hand. we look forward to returning once indoor dining has commenced.
