Estia is a dependable choice. Unfortunately, the downtown location has struggled through the pandemic and some wine selections are challenged as a result. Our server Betty was fantastic, however!
Estia is one of our favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner there 7 years ago and went back to celebrate our anniversary. We had an amazing meal, so flavorful and fresh! The Dover sole is always outstanding! Our server was attentive, friendly and professional. There was a "Happy Anniversary" card at our table when we arrived. Put Estia on your list of "must try" in Philadelphia.
One of my favs when dining in Philly. The octopadi is as good as I’ve had anywhere. Tonight I enjoyed the Mediterranean grilled bass, absolutely amazing. Friends selected the lamb, and raved over its preparation, flavor and tenderness. Excellent selection of Greek wines. If you haven’t experienced Estia, I highly recommend it. Truly a foodies delight.
The server was excellent- the hostess initially tried to seat us on the sidewalk the furthest from the restaurant when very few people were there - we did not appreciate that - as there were nice seats near a heater that were covered -
We are looking for a new favorite restaurant so everything counts
The food was great
Great food from an establish institution that never disappoints.
The food is absolutely delicious. We sat outside because of Covid concerns so the noise level was high. The night before we picked up take out from Estia and it was excellent
Absolutely magical, stunning dinning room, charming waiter. Food was incredibly fresh and beautifully plated. I felt transported to Greece, thank you for this amazing dinner and urge everyone to try Estia.
Estia is always excellent, impressive, and romantic. Incredible first date!
Great food and service. Good amount of choices that are gluten free that doesn't consist of mostly salads.
We have been to Estia before and it was always a great experience. On a Thursday the food was less than ok. The fresh was not freshly cooked but reheated. We were disappointed.
New to Philly. This place was so good, I ordered takeout of the exact same thing I had my first time ever there, 24 hours earlier. Greek salad and grilled octopus appetizer . Heavenly.
Great food and service. Highly recommend.
Delicious food, great service, everything perfect!
This amazing restaurant has outstanding food and service and my birthday dinner was a success!
Estia never disappoints. From the food to the waiter everything is excellent. I highly recommend Estia.
Great food great service
We visited Estia for the first time and had a wonderful dinner. Being Italian and from NY, we have had some of the best calamari out there and Estia’s is right there at the top. It was tender and delicious! We also had the octopus and thought it was just ok. For dinner we ordered the langostino and grilled salmon. Both dishes were outstanding. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. We cannot wait to return soon!
The server was great. I’ve been to Estia several times and each time it gets better and better.
Great meal and the service was fantastic. All the food was excellent!!
Exceptional service and great food. I enjoyed my birthday dinner. The lamb chops were REALLY good.
Estia has the most amazing Greek Salad - all tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and the best dressing anywhere. Staff is under pressure because of COVID but they are gracious and helpful for us who are sitting on the sidewalk. I appreciate that they are there and able to give us a badly needed dining out experience.
The Estia chips are worth the trip alone!
Excellent meal and wonderful service
Amazing as always
Good food and price. We sat out front on Saturday night. There was lots of road noise from motorcycle groups. Surprising number of sketchy people walking by and loitering noisily across the street. (Maybe this is just Philadelphia.) But a safe environment.
Although the restaurant was expensive, the food was excellent. The service was also great. We truly enjoyed our dinner at Estia!
Still a favorite despite the new normal of reduced offerings, social distancing and 25% occupancy. The food is excellent .
The food was exceptional! It was a little loud but worth the city dining. Attentive waiter and excellent food. The best of my summer dining experiences.
Always amazing, super yummy food and delicious wine. If you’re coming to Philly, Estia.
Wonderful experience - food and service was above all expectations.
Excellent food and excellent service!
Great experience! Would definitely recommend for anyone to stop by and try out
Loud on the street
Saki, our server, was awesome. The food was incredible, from the Estia Chips and other appetizers, the Greek salad and the mains! All incredible! Lamb chops especially. Desserts delicious too. Great meal and we will be back!!
Fantastic Greek food
Only outdoor seating with covid
But can’t wait to dine inside, gorgeous
Best service and best food, but the environment was not conducive. Understanding of the COVID-19 Crisis and it was well accepted 👍.
Great food and service. It's challenging in the pandemic to have the ambiance
of Estia outside, but the restaurant team did an exceptional job of compensating for the environment.
Everything was exceptional. Wonderful experience. (Loud busy street though)
The food and service were excellent, the street noise with the dirt bikes is unbearable and completely obnoxious. Can’t even speak to the person sitting across from you. The city should be ashamed for allowing this behavior. I feel really bad for the restaurants who are forced to put up with this.
