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.

The area around the table had food on the ground. A high chair was there and clearly had not been cleaned. That was moderately gross. Aside from that, it was a very nice meal.

Food was free and flavorful. Our waiter provided amazing service. The outside seating was socially distant but also intimate. I did not know that was possible. I would definitely frequent this location again.

I do love Estia overall. Their food is unique to the neighborhood and the menu staples are consistently good. (the zucchini chips, etc) This visit to Estia was for my birthday dinner and our waiter Tom was outstanding! He made the experience fun and his service exceeded our expectations. But the reason I rated the meal a 4 rather than a 5 is that I ordered the pasta with lobster and, considering the price, the lobster was = to maybe 2-3 large shrimp. Sorry, but for $41.00 I should not have to search through the noodles to find the lobster! Another customer near by had the same experience. So Estia, beef up the portion or adjust the money if you want 5 *.

Estia is always on point. I was sad that they were out of my favorite Dover Sole, but I ended up ordering something that I enjoyed even more: The Lobster Linguini. The marinara sauce was delicious and FOR ONCE I got a perfectly cooked lobster at a restaurant (so many places seem to overcook them). The Greek salad was delicious (I don't know where they get their tomatoes from but they are always perfection.) My husband especially enjoyed the caramelized onion orzo side dish he got. We sat at the bar to eat and both of the women who waited on us were super. Even the music was great -- making the space feel like a bit of the Greek Islands. Can't wait to go back.

There were many open outdoor tables, but we had great difficulty when we asked to be moved to one. The food was good -- but pretty ordinary Greek food. The preparation and quality didn't justify the absurd prices; for example, a grilled piece of fish for $41.00.

Food as always is excellent but the costs for the non food items such as drinks are very high. Food was worth the value but when 1/3 of your bill for two people is three simple drinks and a soda it really is out of proportion. I would go only on a special occasion. One other note, even thought they just opened and were very empty the service was slow.

We waited an hour before we had to ask for a waiter. My husband had fish filet and there were bones throughout.
Estia is our favorite restaurant. I ended up canceling our reservation for 4 next weekend not understanding why we had such bad service.
We appreciated the appetizers and dessert on the house, but I am sure you’ll agree that the long wait with no promise of a server is unacceptable.

Everything was great. Sat at the bar. Great atmosphere, food, service. Just was a little disappointing that it was so expensive.
I certainly eat in fine restaurants all the time, weekly but… $170 for two people sitting at the bar that shared an entrée and shared a salad and had asparagus is a lot…

We dined on Monday Evening. The outdoor option at Estia is horrible when it is hot and humid out. They have not invested in fans or any air movement mechanisms. What was satisfactory for the Fall-Winter-Spring doesn't work for Summer. If you are brave enough to go indoors, the AC is more than adequate. Food is very good but it is difficult to enjoy the food when you are saturated with sweat. Service was not great either when compared to pre-pandemic staffing. Probably the quality of wait staff that has been hired. I'm looking forward to going back indoors when the pandemic is totally behind us.

Hi Yodi, thanks for your feedback. We actually do have several fans of multiple sizes all throughout the patio. Since Monday we have been in an excessive heat warning with temperatures near 100 degrees which even the best and biggest fans could not quell. We would like to invite you back on a day where the weather is more suitable for outdoor dining and I will personally ensure you have a fan right next to you. Best regards.

We scheduled an early meal 5PM to avoid the usual late crowd nosies.
However it got very loud very quickly and just ruined the mood for us to celebrate my wife's 70th birtday.

Food is always good and place was packed due to rainy and cold weather outside. Waiter was not wonderful. Table of four older people. Once he saw we were not going to order expensive wine and we shared some appetizers it seemed like he lost interest in pleasing us. Not going to a big enough tip to warrant his time I guess. We shared desserts too and he nearly snarled at us when we questioned that he brought an incorrect item. Our dinner partners said that's ok it's fine and he just walked away. Never saw him again someone else presented the bill. Check was $150 per couple so not cheap for the kind of service we got.

We got there early to beat the rain and waited at the bar until out table was ready. The bartender was funny, quick and very good! We enjoyed the time at the bar. We got to our table and our waiter introduced himself and got our orders in quick and out to the table in a timely fashion. Everything was delicious!

I let them know that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. they knew this when we arrived - the hostess wished us a happy anniversary which was a nice touch. However, they proceeded to seat us next to a family with a noisy baby. Not exactly my idea of a romantic dinner. Please be more thoughtful when seating.

Three of us had excellent meals at Estia yesterday. We enjoyed calamari and romaine salad , followed by sea bass, Moussa, and papoutsakia entrees offered on the in-house Prix Fixe menu. The baklava dessert was the best we have ever had .

There are nice outdoor seating options at Estia.
