    If you are headed to a show at the Kimmel Center, Estia is nearby and the wait staff is accustomed to getting you out the door on time without feeling rushed. Vegetarian options on the menu, full bar.

    Food here is excellent, in the theatre district. They’ll get you out on time! Mila, our server, was very attentive and enthusiastic. The Spanakopita was excellent and the moussaka portion was heroic. We shared it. The lamb chops also looked delicious as well as the fish dishes.

    We loved the ambience, and the service was stellar. And now to the food - the greek salad was perfection, and the entrees we tried were really good - when my sons are still talking about their meal the next day, that is a sound endorsement. We are counting down to our next visit! Thank you.

    I have always loved Estia but this time it wasn’t up to par. The Estia chips were good but not hot. My husband’s drink didn’t have one of the two essential components, my drink was really sour and I watered it down constantly and still only drank half of it. The lamb chops were very good as always but the sea bass was very salty. I brought most of it home and will add potatoes to it tonight. Our waitress was lovely.

    We went for an early dinner 4:15. They had a gluten free menu which was greatly appreciated. They had a coat check which was helpful. Dinner was excellent. A bit on the pricey side. However, it was worth it.

    My guest and I were looking forward to having dinner at Estia prior to attending concert. The drinks were excellent, the appetizer (grilled octopus) was very good, and the service was fine. However, the entree, Mediterranean Sea Bass, was limp and the lemon sauce dominated any flavor left after overcooking the fish. Overall the meal was disappointing.

    My friends and I had dinner at Estia before attending a show at the Academy of Music. There was a fixed price theater menu to order from or we could order from the full menu. There were eight of us and the servers were very attentive to our timeline. The food was delicious and so fresh and the waitstaff was very friendly and responsive. We would definitely eat here again.

    We visited Estia before seeing a show at the Academy of Music. We love the atmosphere at Estia, and their pre-theater menu has enough variety on it to please most folks. They were busy, but we were seated on time. Our server has worked there for many years, and took care to explain all of the food choices. Our food was delivered hot, and everyone enjoyed what they were served. Our only complaint about Estia is that it is quite dark in there. We were seated toward the center of the room, and we had challenges seeing the menu and the check. There were several tables around us pulling out their phones to help them see. The food is quite good, if a bit pricy, but it is hard to appreciate what it looks like, because it is so dark in the dining room.
