I had a 5:00 pm reservation at Estia. I made the reservation a week in advance. We were seated at 4:55 pm which was great. We were served water and given menus. At 5:45 pm, I walked out! No one came to our table nor asked us if we needed anything. Two tables were seated 20 minutes after us! They were immediately given bread and their orders were taken! I left and made a reservation Fogo de Chao! It’s was amazing!!! I have never walked out of a restaurant before but the service at Estia was absolutely terrible and I will never go back or even try it in the future!
The service was good but the only thing is that the waitress put in my order wrong, then to took 30mins for my food to come out. Also we fried potatoes and it 45min for those and the waitress told us the manger was going to talk to us and no one came to talk to us
Great food and great service
Very poor service. Only one server for the entire restaurant. He was a very nice guy , but overwhelmed.
Everything was exceptional. Our waiter was so nice and really helped us out with the menu. Food was excellent..
Every restaurant in the city of Philadelphia should ask about the service standards in play here.
Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. Waiter’s recommendations were spot on.
Sami the waiter was outstanding
The octopus was sensational as always. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay that was supposed to be a 2017 but it was a young 2019 and it was a poor example of Chardonnay. In addition my halibut was very dried out I brought it home thinking I would make a fish salad out of it and found it also smelled fishy.
Great to see them open! Our waiter was very friendly.
Beautiful restaurant, fantastic food, great wait staff. Highly recommend it!
First time here - delicious food, great service, really enjoyed the atmosphere (sat inside). Some items were a bit pricey but it felt worth it given the overall experience. And the octopus appetizer was the best I’ve ever had!
Delicious!! Every single item we had was delicious. We had the theatre menu, huge bargain!! The lamb chops melted in my mouth. The service was excellent. The food was amazing.
Octopus done right. Possibly best calamari in the city.
Went on a date there and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the place. Super happy with the food and service
Delicious food and a very pretty restaurant. The fix-price menu offers excellent value. The food was between good and great, I especially enjoyed the Spinakopita and baklava for dessert. Service was good, with very mild nuances: couldn't prepare a cocktail from the menu and would forget to bring us water. I would definitely come back.
The pre-fix Easter Menu was apropos for the occasion. The soup, salad, roasted lamb and potatoes were as if we were enjoying it in Greece. The service and the wonderful ambience certainly added to experience. Very professional and authentic.
Every single thing we ordered was delicious. Staff were very honest about portion sizes and helped us from over ordering which is not always the case. Will definitely be coming back!!
Great date or special occasion spot.
We had a wonderful dinner and especially enjoyed the spanakopita! Our waiter was very attentive and seemed like he really loved the dishes as he described them to us. We both would definitely recommend this place to others.
In my opinion, the very best restaurant in the city for Mediterranean food. The greek salad and Estia chips are a must. Service is outstanding; always a fantastic experience.
Great service, food and ambiance
Everything was perfect ! Saki was the best ! Definitely would recommend this !
Oh my !!! If you don't mind paying a little bit more for really good Greek food, then try Estia. We went for our 30th Anniversary and everything was excellent. Betty our server was great. We ordered several appetizers, my wife ordered the chicken and I ordered the halibut. Both were excellent. And so were the deserts!! If we end up in Philly again, we will be back.
it was great! Loved the food and the service was friendly and perfect
The food is always so delicious! We started with the Estia chips, so thin and crispy....zucchini and eggplant never tasted so good!!!! Next we ordered the lamp chops and halibut...so perfectly prepared. Estia has the best atmosphere...quiet relaxed but also a romantic venue.
The service was excellent. We also had requested a booth and they made sure we were seated there. Best of Philly!
Some of the best Greek food we’ve had in a very long time.
Lovely, lovely, lovely.
The food was amazing especially the zucchini chips and filet
One of our favorite restaurants to visit in the city. I’m glad they are getting busier. Always seem to order the same stuff. Octopus, shrimp, lamb chops, and the sea bass. Vera is an absolute dollAlways nice to see her.
Amazing food! Great service!
Food was very good.
Grilled octopus is amazing. Two people got four orders :-)
Had dinner with 3 friend and had a wonderful experience. Grilled octopus was amaaaaaaaazing! Spanakopita was really good as well. We also ordered the sautéed calamari which was tasty and tender, not at all overcooked. I had the shrimp souvlaki for dinner and have been thinking about it ever since. I highly recommend for tasty food.
My husband loves Greek food, so for his birthday we chose to celebrate at Estia. We were so satisfied with the food - we shared everything! It was the perfect amount of food to have an app, salad and entree shared. We were both completely full, but still ordered the Greek cheesecake which was phenomenal.
This was one of the best Meals I have had in a while! Delish! I will be returning many time in the up coming years.
Service, food, and ambiance were all amazing. Can’t recommend this place enough
Old grumpy server
