    Very happy with our early dinner last Sunday. Cocktails, appetizer, wine, entrees, tea and dessert. Everything came out great. The best part was server Robin!! Our entrees were the lamb chops and the Lobster linguini. We needed Robin's help with a wine pairing. She brought us the Super Tuscan. A+ for the lamb chops but a concern for lobster. She knew that the Italian red sauce on the linguini just screams for the Super Tuscan!! The wine literally danced on our tongues!! Just Excellent! Great to see Manager Clark as well. We will be back and we will ask for Robin!

    Oysters, octopodi, halloumi, halibut. A bottle of Gentili Robola (Greek white) and a Greek coffee. All perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Terrific service, as always. A great pre-concert dinner. Estia should be on everyone's short list of best Center City dining experiences.

    Our food was delicious, our drinks were delicious and the staff overall was extremely attentive. However, we went to this restaurant after seeing a show at the Academy of Music. Our waitress did not explain the pricing for the “Theatre Menu” correctly and we were told it was $40 per person with no additional add-ons. When we received our bill there were $10+ of add on pricing per person. The manager came over to explain what the costs were and again this was not explained by our waitress. Our dinner ended up costing almost double the cost that we were originally told. *RECOMMEND READING THE MENU FULLY*

    First time dining at Estia and it was great! Everything was perfect. We both had fish entrees and the fish was cooked perfectly and served with delicious veggies. Our server (Betty) was super and had several good recommendations for us. Highly recommend the swordfish and halibut; but also try the beet app - it was super. Although the restaurant was crowded we were not rushed and leisurely enjoyed coffee and tea with a delicious piece of the honey walnut cake. Definitely recommend trying this restaurant- you will enjoy the food and ambience. We will return!

    From the staff to the food, everything here was amazing. I wish I remember the name of our waiter because he was very very kind and gave a few suggestions being our first time at a Greek restaurant. The food quality was amazing and you can tell everything is fresh. I can’t wait to return and try a few other things on the menu.
