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.

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.

Estia is always very special with its emphasis on Greek cuisine. Last night the tuna tartare with avocado and special dressing was particularly savory. Had never tried it before but will again.

My first time dining at Estia. Recommended by a friend who went with me. Food was great, but server was not attendant. Our cocktails came, apps served, main course served, finished eating and waited a good 30 min before she finally showed up to check on us. By that time, we have been there a total of 2 hrs and only checked in on once. Restaurant was not full. We would've ordered more drinks and water glasses needed a refill. Won't b returning to this location. Will be heading to Philly instead to see if service is better there. Shame too bc food was great. I've been a Restaurant manager, server, host, and bartender and there was no reason to let a table of two sit that long without attendance.

They keep charging for silly extras like $3 for small feta cheese add on or $2 for 5 carrot slices. They raised their prices already. May have to avoid this restaurant in the future.

I thought the menu was limited and the food wasn’t bad but it certainly didn’t WOW us. For the price of everything, I expected to be more impressed. For three of us (2 adults, one child) it was $200. We had calamari and octopus appetizer and pasta with shrimp and salmon for dinner. It was “OK” but I’d likely never pick to go there again as there are better places.

I’m a frequent diner at Estia and I’m never disappointed. Between myself and family members we’ve sampled most of the menu and everything is delicious!
