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.

You definitely get what you pay for! I was shocked even at the portion sizes as each dish came out. And so much flavor! They also start you toasted bread and hummus for the table at no charge. I'll definitely be there for a return visit!

We had a great experience at Estia that not only included a delicious meal but a lovely setting that felt completely safe to all of us. Our meal was at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. We ate in the front room, which was perfect. It was a sunny brisk fall afternoon and we wanted a little protection from the elements but felt completely safe because the doors were wide open and so, it really felt like the room had only 3 walls - free-flowing air. The tables were quite spaced apart and we, probably because of the hour, were the only customers enjoying the space. I also appreciated that the tables are big enough that there was ample space (for safety) between me and my dining partners - there were 4 of us. Everything we ordered was fantastic and the service was impeccable!

For outdoor dining in the days of Covid this was a nice option, albeit a little noisy from traffic. That was made up for with the great, friendly service and excellent food. The lamb shank came right off the bone and was tender, and the risotto that came with it was delicious. I would return!

This is a second visit to Estia in short time ... this should be enough to say.
The appetizers were great: Dolmades (rice in grape leaves), Estia chips (fried zucchini and eggplants) and Spanakopita (spinach pie). All were exceptional. The chips are just so enjoyable!
For mains we had: swordfish skewers, pasta alla greca (with eggplants), and moussaka (the greek pasticcio with lasagna, potatoes, meat). The moussaka was so tasty and well prepared. All portions were really generous.
We skipped the desert just because it was pretty cold outside (not their fault!), but in the future some restaurants will have to consider installing outdoor heaters.

Estia Taverna has done an excellent job with outdoor dining. The service and food were excellent as always. The octopus appetizer is beyond fabulous! They have created a barrier between the busy highway and the dining area ... there is covered dining and open dining ... given all the challenges of COVID ... you could not ask for a better experience!
