Greek
The stunning restaurant, which is the first of its kind in South Jersey, will transport guests to the Greek Islands with an atmosphere reminiscent of an inviting Mediterranean home, and a menu of authentic specialties, simply prepared, that represent the best of Greek cuisine. The restaurant specializes in whole grilled fish, which are flown in from the Greek islands, the shores of Morocco, Tunisia and Portugal, and procured from independent North American fishermen. We have created a welcoming restaurant designed with the comforts of a typical Greek home. We used materials such as hand-chiseled Jerusalem limestone floors, hand woven rugs, vaulted ceilings, antiqued stucco walls, wood plank floors and exposed wood beams to evoke the traditional atmosphere. A series of dining areas feature rustic farm tables, dark wood chairs with beige cushions and dining nooks with upholstered banquettes. The homelike ambience is accentuated with whitewashed walls.

Service was excellent and food was also excellent. We sat by a large group which made the noise level high but other than that the ambience was good.

I had ordered the lamb chops thought that for 39 dollars they would be above average size especially for only 3 on the order, but was disappointed by such a small order when they came out,I usually get a full rack eleswhere for same price or less,very unhappy with entree ,won t get lamb chops again here if i return,ilive in Margate NJ drove to me meet local friends who said lets go here. Would recommend but do not order lamb chops

Brian, our server was excellent and the food, as always was great. It was our Anniversary, and although you and Estia knew, they seated us in the bar area--- little noisy and not so private. I should have taken issue at the time, I know...

Enjoyed our dinning experience. Food was great, service was exceptional. we ordered apps a Greek salad and entrees. They put the bread and hummas down that was included. The apps came out quickly and the salad while we were eating our apps. I got the attention of our server, Deanna, and ask her to make sure entrees were timed to give us time to enjoy the food we already had. Not only did she make sure that happened but ask me if I was happy . I tip my hat to fantastic service Deanna!!

The food was fantastic. I ordered the Dover Sole and it was great. I had grilled shrimp for an appetizer and the best I have ever had. They bring bread with hummus to dip for each meal. Cool looking restaurant and the main thing is they have enough help. Somewhat pricey but worth it.

We found most of our meal to be OK, but unremarkable, which was disappointing giving the pricey menu. Shrimp Saganaki had a nice tomato sauce, a little salty, but barely had any cheese pieces or flavor. The salad dressing was quite ordinary, with a few thin slices of beets, and two pieces of feta. Our salmon was well-prepared and tasty. The moussaka was overpowered by way too much bechamel sauce and had too little of the other ingredients.

Service was great. Host and server did not know it was our anniversary and did put a note on our reservation for special event. Told server at table at introduction. Disappointed in drinks espresso martini not that great. Sour cherry margarita not very cherry flavor. Was charged 3.50 for club soda kinda surprised by that. Lamp chops wonderful sea bass okay hummus delicious tuna tartar needs more pita with order atmosphere romantic staff polite and attentive did get cookies at end of dinner for anniversary with candle nice gesture to end meal

Consistently good even if a little pricey. We ordered the seafood tower that had giant chunks of crabmeat. Dolmades and Estia chips are favorites.

I ordered the Greek Casserole and didn't like. Not fault of the restaurant, not everyone will like every dish. I'll try them again. One thing I found weird was when I said I didn't like it the manager never came out. Thought that was odd as managers usually try to come smooth things over. Wasn't sure what to make of that? 🤔

The server was fabulous. The drinks and food were excellent. But we were surprised at the extremely high prices. Estia always had great food and drinks. But all of a sudden the prices are increased to a ridiculous amount. That was very disappointing.

The food was very good. Unfortunately the service wasn’t great. Server spilled drinks when put down never brought napkins or cleaned up. We were seated outside as requested but there was the stench of rotting garbage and the flies and ants at the table were there to too it off.

I must say Estia was even better than expected. Our waitress was a pleasure. She timed the meal perfectly. Our appetizers were very good. Oysters were excellent and the spinach pie was fabulous. Our main course consisted of lamb shank and halibut. Both were very good. It was a nice relaxed meal with superior food. We were both stuffed. Congrats to the chef

Went for a nice dinner with family. The restaurant is gorgeous. It was hot. Hard for the water to stay cold...inside. Our server Caitlin seemed new or just weeded because she was not as attentive as many of the other servers. The food was great.
