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.

We were very happy to get the table we asked for (one of the bar booths), so that started the night off very well for us. We shared the delicious Estia chips, Greek salad & Fagri with Horta. Every dish was scrumptious. We ended our meal with Ekmek which was also yummy.

We recently enjoyed our fourth meal here. We don’t live close by, so our meals have been months apart, over the course of 3 years. But each meal has been outstanding, enough so that I felt inclined to leave a positive review even though I don’t typically take the time to leave reviews.
Excellent food! Service was excellent as well! highly recommend. Dimly lit, made for a romantic atmosphere at our two lunches and two dinners.

Favorites in no particular order:
The complimentary bread and hummus
Papoutsakia
Moussaka
Dolmades
Greek meatballs
All their Mediterranean spreads with pita are wonderful
Spinach pie
Baklava
The grand plateau from the raw bar, with the best mussels we’ve ever had! (though clarified butter would have been nice for the lobster and crab, I didn’t bother to ask, since we were so pleased with everything else)

So that’s everything we’ve tried in our 4 meals! Hard not to repeat order. Certainly hope to be back in the area sooner than later to try some more items!

We did the prefix dinner and shared each course. The calamari and octopus appetizers and lamb chop and Mediterranean Sea bass were all delicious. We did pay an up charge for the octopus and lamb chops but well worth it.

Definitely avoid on a Friday night. My husband and I went in for dinner, and the service was terrible. They were more concerned with the larger tables who were drinking alcohol than us. Took a half an hour to get an iced tea. We also ordered salads with our appetizers and the salads arrived with our dinner. Waiter never came to check in on us, and we sat and waited for 30 minutes for our check, while we watched him wait on all of the other tables around us. Food is great, but definitely avoid on a busy night.

Estia never fails to deliver fresh, high quality food. The jumbo African prawns are amazing. Lamb Chops, seabass - everything they serve is outstanding. Service is great also. Highly recommend.

We had a very nice time. The food was excellent as it tasted delicious. I think that the noise level was too much as it was difficult to talk across the table.

On the open table I wrote that it was my birthday on Saturday and the restaurant did not even acknowledge this special occasion. Why do they ask the comment.

Valentine date. We were seated 30 minutes late for our 7:30 reservation.Our bread was served to us in what seemed to be an afterthought, (though the hummus was excellent). My shrimp appetizer arrived about 5 minutes before my partners crab cake. The crab was very good, the sauce in the shrimp also very good but the shrimp was a warning sign; just this this side of being over cooked. The mixed seafood orzo was good but my lobster linguini was like chewing a pencil eraser.

Inedible.

Needless to say our entire dining experience was ruined and we decided not to stay and waste more money on desert and coffee. The waitress was kind enough to remove the lobster from the bill though we still had a $150 disappointment that we were required to pay for.
