Had a lovely pre-theatre lunch in this cozy space. Being Greek, I’m picky about Greek restaurants, and this one exceeded my expectations. It felt traditional, but had some nice nods to modern dining sensibilities and food prep. The service was excellent—prompt without feeling rushed. If you’re going to the Kimmel Center, it’s a perfect choice.

Only 2 minutes walk from the Academy of Music makes Estia a great spot for a pre-show brunch. The have a very good menu of classic Greek and other dishes but we usually opt for the 2 course lunch menu which has a good selection and is a great value. They offer $5 brunch cocktails too!

Service was fabulous. We went to have brunch prior to seeing Les Miserables and didn't even realize it was restaurant week. Our waiter recommended the specials for restaurant week. I ordered the fish special (bronzini) for my entree and the spanikopita for my first course. There was a special coconut cake for dessert. It was fabulous. My husband ordered steak and eggs from the brunch menu. He enjoyed it. We would plan to eat there again if we are visiting the theater.

Went with a few ladies for dinner and drinks and were absolutely wowed by the great service and food. Being greek myself, I had heard Estia was the best and it lived up to the standards. Our waitress was kind, energetic and helpful and the atmosphere was comfortable and fun. Cannot wait to return.

Had the business lunch. Tomato salad was very good in spite of tomatoes being out of season. Would have preferred feta chunks over crumbs! Grilled octopus was delicious as was moussaka.

My girlfriend and I recently visited Estia for date night during Restaurant Week in Center City. Upon entering and exiting, we both enjoyed our dinner experience immensely. We were seated right away, however, a slight mix-up occurred. As we were being seated so was another couple, at the same table! The other gentleman and myself were both confused but after a minute of two I found a staff member and the other couple was seated elsewhere. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and frequently checked on us until we were ready to order. For an appetizer, we shared the octopus and Greek salad. This was my first time eating octopus and it was fantastic (I had been eyeing it up all week on the menu). For the main course we both had the recommended lamb chops, and they were to die for. Dessert was capped off with walnut cake and coffee. Restaurant week was a great value as a normally priced dinner of around $150-$175 turned into $100 with a hearty tip.

All around magnificent experience.

Service was sub-par, sorry to say. Have dined here over many years many times . Hopeful they will take more care with more professional serious service.

Went for Restaurant Week-main course fish of the day was delicious. Dessert cake was dry/mediocre and spanikopita app pastry was odd. Don’t know why Restaurant Week choices were not best foot forward for the restaurant

We went for restaurant week and had a delicious meal! One of the people in our party said the lamb chop was the best he had ever had. Everyone enjoyed their meal, would also recommend the grilled octopus.
