The lamb chops are AMAZING! Other things are hit or miss, but the lamb chops are 100% worth it.

Love this place.
Only minor item was that it took 15 minutes to get a drink and the place was not all that crowded.

The octopus app is excellent! Also liked the pita and spreads. While the restaurant was 'lively', we had requested a quiet table and were seated appropriately.

Delicious, authentic food, great atmosphere in the middle of the city. There was some confusion over the bill that took some time to resolve but other than that, great experience.

Always enjoy coming here. We had the theater menu which is the best value for money and still has quite a good choice of food. Love the ambiance!

It was my wife's birthday & everything was FANTASTIC!! The octopus was super tender & my lamb chops were cooked to order (med rare) & seasoned nicely. My wife received a birthday card when we arrived at the restaurant & they came & sung 'happy birthday' to her during dessert (NO....It wasn't that creepy 'TGI Friday' type birthday singing. It was nice!!). Everything was perfect.......Thanks!!!

I love Greek food, so I was really looking forward to our Saturday early evening meal at Estia. Sadly, it was just OK. The service was Ok. The food was, on average, OK. It was crowded and uptight.
How can a Greek restaurant, of all places, serve dried out Chicken?! Why offer a Greek salad, when the chunks of tomatoes are bland and mealy.
What a disappointment.

We celebrated my younger daughter’s 30th birthday here with lunch before seeing a ballet at the Academy of Music. The entire experience at Estia was top-notch. Delicious food, lovely Greek rose’ wine, and careful and attentive service. We appreciate that Estia always has vegetarian options and can remove dairy from many options as well. The dolmades and the beet appetizer with potatoes and greens are always good, as is the eggplant entree and the grilled tuna salad. Definitely recommend the baclava for dessert!

It is one of our favorite dining spots in the city, and it was Linda’s birthday. Everything was perfect, from the appetizers, to the complementary dessert.Thank you for making it such a memorable evening.

The pre- theater meal was delicious. We enjoyed the hummus appetizers which were delicious. I had the fish which came to my table steaming hot, and it was delicious. My cousin has moussaka which was hot and delicious too.I had the baclava for dessert which was the perfect finishing touch. It was served with plenty of time to pay our bill and see the ballet with plenty of time to spare. I would definitely go back again, delicious food.
