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

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
