Pre-theater dinner menu choices were extensive and, at $35 for 3 courses an excellent value! A wonderful option. Service was prompt, attentive and friendly. Nice by the glass wine list so that each party was able to select the best option to accompany their entree. We will be returning!

Terrible service other table also complained
Dinner was not hot. By the time they brought the dinner out they also brought the dessert to the table which was melting sorbet because I was trying to eat my entree. Couldn't find waitress to even pay the bill and was going to be late to the theater. Table next to us also was also waiting to pay.

The atmosphere was very good. The food was very tasty, if on the expensive side. Service was okay. The servers did not seem to be in sync with bringing out food items. It was necessary to ask several times for something as basic as bread for the table. Everyone indicated it would be brought out right away, but it never came until dinner was finished.

Another great meal was had by everyone after the theater. The place gets very crowded quickly so critical to have a reservation. All the employees are very professional and services great. Really enjoy the prefix menu for pre or post theater. Everyone enjoyed their mail!

This was our 3rd time in a few months since we have a Sunday matinee subscription to the Broadway Series at the Academy. This is the first time that the meal was not great. We were put into a corner table for two and our server was not the most attentive. He did do well with my special ordering I will give him that. I ordered the large tomato salad no feta, no olives and no salt with grilled salmon on top. The salad was $20 and the salmon was an additional $10. There was no salt on the salad. Can't say the same for the salmon. Or it was just that the salmon came out overly grilled and that is what I tasted. I ate the salmon and half the salad keeping the rest to take home. When our waiter cleared off the table we asked for the salad to be wrapped up. My husband had ordered the honey cake and I ordered a decaf coffee. 10 minutes later we asked about the coffee, dessert and salad. He forgot all 3 and actually had the salad thrown out. We cancelled my coffee and asked to have another salad - small size - done since it was the waiter's fault. He did bring out a salad but it was a very small amount. I will be much more specific next time.

We moved from greater Philadelphia a couple of years ago and for years were regular diners at Estia in Center City and Marlton. We were disappointed to return and find that the menu seems to be Americanizing. For example, the lamb chops come with fries and not lemon potatoes. Galaktoboureko is not even on the dessert menu any more.

The food that we did get though was as amazing as ever, especially the hummus.

My third visit to Estia but my wife’s first. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and we could not have chosen a better restaurant. Service was great, food excellent and we had a wonderful time. The octopus and shrimp appetizers were delicious and very tender. Lamb and filet were perfectly prepared and the deserts were great.

We originally booked a table for 3 then 4, at the last minute. As always the hostess was able to accommodate our table requests, even though we finally ended up with just the 2 of us. Our waiter has taken care of us on many occasions and even though we waited to order, expecting extra guests, he got us in and out on time without rushing us. Food was great as always!

Estia was a delight. It's hard to find good, authentic Greek food that hasn't been really Americanized, but I feel like they do it very well. The options aren't overwhelming, which lets them get on with creating really delicious and beautiful dishes. Two of my friends got the lamb chops, which were gorgeous and perfectly done. My moussaka was wonderful. I highly recommend Estia for anyone visiting (or living in) Philly.

Several of us wanted to dine before going to the Academy of Music, Estia was a great choice. They have excellent service, great job Katelyn!!! Our group was needy the management staff was accommodating in every way! The Theater menu was awesome. Thank you for great service, I will return will a less problematic group.

We ordered from the three-course pre-theater menu, which was a very good value, with a nice number and variety of selections. The food was well prepared, the service was generally prompt and efficient except the waitress forgot to bring our cocktails until we reminded her when our first course was served. The baklava is superb! I wouldn’t recommend Estia for a date or romantic meal — it was quite busy and the tables are close together. But it was just right for a nice meal before the concert we were going to.

Mediocre overall experience and disappointing considering it was Greek Easter when they should have been on the top of their game.
