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.

It's really too bad but it seems they need more help like most restaurants these days. We waited a long time and then were told that my friend's fish was no longer available. They took a new order and we finally got our food, but the potatoes came after we were done eating. Also too bad because their potatoes are amazing. All in all VERY expensive - totally overpriced for portions, but the wait staff was nice and apologetic.

Absolutely amazing! Our waiter was so wonderful, the food was incredible, the ambience was amazing. I went to the grocery store immediately after to try and replicate their Greek salad and dressing. Can’t wait to go back.

We had dinner for 4 on Friday night. Food was delicious, great service. Grilled octopus appetizer was very tender, fish of the day and swordfish kebob were excellent, zucchini chips were fun and delicious to share. Nice atmosphere as well.
Would definitely recommend this place for a special occasion. It's on the expensive side, but well worth it to treat yourself sometimes.

Estia was able to stay at the top of their game throughout the Pandemic, but now the labor shortage seems to be catching up with them. On this visit, the service and kitchen did not live up to what we're used to.

Food and ambiance exceptional here! Best beet and arugula salad anywhere! And I love the swordfish kabobs which is a hard dish to find! Baklava gelato was a delicious surprise at the end!

We had a reservation for our Anniversary but it was for outside. I called a couple days before to request inside if possible. We showed up 15 min early & were taken outside. Most likely the least favored table outside. We were sat all the in the back “patio”, next to the employee only door, which was a loud door, especially with no music outside to drown out those types of things. But the worst part about the location of that table was that we were a couple feet away from where the employees came outside for smoke breaks. Not impressed for our first date out in a long time.

The bread and hummus that welcomes you is a delight in itself. The Greek salad, octopus and chilled shrimp are all great starters. Lamb chops are always a favorite but have really enjoyed the halibut and tuna entrees of late. I have never had a bad bite at ESTIA. It’s always outstanding!

Don’t order the prefixed menu!
@ $35. It’s a ripoff if you order fish and the 1 very small scoop of gelato dessert is a joke. Come on man !

We found the service to be poor. It begin up front with the inattentive and then snarky hostess. The waiter was solid but not exceptional. The food was good. The spinach rice was outstanding. At this price point however, I would expect better service. Undecided as to whether to give them another try but not rushing.

Excellent food as always, not the first time here, always get the chilean sea bass, my favorite dish on the menu. The Mediterranean spreads, eggplant and pepper spread were delicious, the calamari were cooked perfectly, light crispy. The Greek salad which I always liked was excellent besides the fact that it was all cut into big pieces. Overall a great experience.

I wish that they would remove the cross-hatch walls separating the indoor seating from outdoor seating. It's not attractive.

The octopus appetizer is fantastic. The moussaka is also delicious. And I had the fried bronzino and that was terrific too.
Even the desserts are awesome. Go for the $35 prix fixe as that is where the value is.
All in all a great experience.

We had the whole fish, which was good, but very overpriced.
The calamari was fair, but they gave a good sized portion
$11 for a very small glass of sangria.....what are they thinking????
With all the choices of restaurants, can't recommend this given the pricing and lack of value for your money, with the quality being just okay!!!!
