Greek
The stunning restaurant, which is the first of its kind in Radnor, 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 ambiance is accentuated with whitewashed walls.

We’ve always enjoyed lunch here Food is great. We had a server in training who did a wonderful job. It is a bit pricey and especially at dinner, so we only go for lunch

Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and very kind! She didn’t rush us and took the time to explain the menu and provided options for ordering. We appreciated her honesty and guidance while choosing our courses. And absolutely everything we ate was delicious!

The food is excellent, a genuine taste of Greece. On this particular Saturday night, the venue was noisy, and service was exceedingly slow. The waitstaff simply did not have the time to be attentive. Dinner for four with drinks cost $350.00. But the excellence of the food makes this something worth doing upon occasion.

The fixed price menu has alot to choose from; $35 set price for 3 courses. Portions are good for the price; the presentation could be a little nicer. The lamb chops were excellent. Great wine list by the glass. Good service; efficient and unobtrusive. Noise level on a Monday night was high. Would definitely go back.

My daughter,her husband and I dined at Estia on Sunday night. We started with the Estia stack which was delicious and generous size. I had the roasted chicken.It was moist and full of flavor. They both had fish,but, different. They raved about their dinners. Very special!

The food was delicious but the service was poor. There were almost no customers in the restaurant and the one waiter and his assistant were simply not responsive or prompt. I expect better service from Estia

Table for two was a bit uncomfortable. Sunk into seating and was too low to eat comfortably.

Good atmosphere and service but I was disappointed with the food, a bit bland. Seafood is expensive. I'd like to see more vegetarian main courses.

Not sure why Estia Taverna and Estia don't get more props in the local dining scene. First time at Taverna - been to Estia center city approx 50 times - rarely lets us down. Taverna was fantastic!! Only complaint was that when we arrived we were the first to be seated and they would not allow us to move to a booth - even though these tables never filled up.

This a great restaurant. The zucchini fries, spanakopita, roasted potatoes, rice with herbs and the lentil soup were all outstanding. Service is optimal.

We had another great meal / dining experience at Estia. Love both the Center City and Radnor locations. Had 7:30 reservations, arrived 40 minutes or so early, had a nice cocktail and they requested to be seated. Unfortunately, they put us at a center table for two, right next to a high traffic route. Were hoping for a more romantic spot. Specifically asked if we could have a booth that was empty along the back wall but was told it was reserved for a party of four. It remained vacant for about the first 30 minutes of our time there and then they sat a party of two there. So, that was a bit disappointing on the hostess' part. Other than that, drink and wine were great, service was excellent and the meal was fabulous - and quite a bargain during their restaurant week, with three courses for $35.

Good food, but quite expensive. Menu can overwhelm with all the choices available and somewhat confusing when you order and pay for fish by the pound. Prix fixe choice is a good option. Reserving ahead of time doesn't ensure you'll get a good table. (When we arrived, 4 booths were sitting empty but we were told they were being saved for later diners).

The wait staff and the bus people were not properly trained. One dish took a long time and we needed to ask our waitress about it. The bus staff and waitress rushed to clear the table before everyone was done. I mentioned it to the manager and I had the feeling he was going to deal with it appropriately . I could the staff looking at us after my speaking to the manager.
