Javier is the consumate professional as a server. Estia has the best crab cake appetizer in the city!! The dinners and wine were excellent. Fair warning, the lobster linguini is a lot of food!! Their cheesecake is different and delicious. It is made with greek yogurt and honey. A nice finish to a terrific night out. Thank you!!

What a beautiful restaurant; nicely appointed, charming interior, super attentive staff. My co-diner had the sea bass: v good. I had chicken: one half was very dry, the other half moist…it was ok. Baklava was fabulous

This is one of our standard restaurants to eat when we come to Philadelphia, the food is delicious, the service is timely and courteous, and the ambience is fun. I had the branzini and it was prepared perfectly and the taste was delicate and wonderful texture. The octopus appetizer was perfect as usual and the eggplant chips very tasty. The oysters were also excellent. My wife had the lamp chops and they also were cooked to our liking and very tasty. The food has always been perfect.

Birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant! It was great but I only go for special occasions because it’s EXPENSIVE. We had two appetizers, two entrees, two desserts, a salad to share, and three drinks between the two of us, and it was $250+ including a 20% tip. Still great. Get the Plaki (sea bass)!!!

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.
