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.

Definitely a popular place. The restaurant was crowded, yet controlled. The servers were attentive and polite and the food was delicious! All in all a wonderful experience. I highly recommend!

Certain foods were excellent, but the fish price fix platter contained a very small piece of fish and orzo that was soaked with a sweet marinara that overpowered the orzo. The moussaka was good, but it was a bit greasy and not the best I’ve had in Phila. The Greek salad and spanakopita were excellent.

One of my favorite restaurants. I love the octopus and Estia chips. Had the Chilean sea bass and it was perfectly prepared. Our server, George, was very attentive and a great host.

If you like lamb then this is the place to go. It was by far some of the best lamb chops I ever had.

We eat at Estia frequently and love the food. On this visit, a busy Saturday night, we had our first negative experience. We had dirty glasses and bread plates and never got the bread and hummus until we asked after the appetizers were served. The server seems distracted and forgot things like clean bread plates and coming back, a sharing plate for the whole fist entree, and getting an answer to a question we asked about one of the entrees. While the appetizers were very good (octopus , mussels, Greek salad and the amazing Estia Chips), all four entrees were over cooked and dry. We ordered the giant prawns (couldn’t remove the meat from the shells), salmon, and the whole Fagri (extremely dry). To be fair, we didn’t complain because the place was so business and we didn’t want to wait for the new dishes to be prepared. We will go back but we’re very disappointed with our meal and service. We spent well over $300 and left frustrated.

Went for early dinner. Fish dish came back overcooked and extremely small. No one in the restaurant and they still messed up our order. Completely missed one guest order so we all ate and then we we watched him eat his meal alone. No offer of compensation for their mess up.

We like Estia very much. The food is excellent and the service is very friendly.
I have only 2 less favorable comments:
-It is expensive.
-The noise level is very destructive. We sat at a table for 6 which was large and very nice but the noise was too loud, I could barely hear the people who set across the table from me.

The atmosphere was nice, food was very good but waiter and policies were not so much. Had to wait for 3rd guest to arrive, my friend asked if we could have the hummus and bread that you get while we waited especially since not given to us the last visit. He said you have to order first. Then I asked for a dessert to go on a separate check and he said he couldn’t give me a separate check. He also was not very attentive or nice.

We have eaten dinner at this restaurant on multiple occasions and it is one of our favorites. This was our first time for lunch and the two course lunch special offers numerous options at a very reasonable price. You may also order other items for an additional charge, so you do not feel limited In your choices. Although our server was friendly, we rarely saw him after placing our order - we had to request bread for the table and drink refills from a different server.
If this had been our first visit to Estia, I’m not sure how enthusiastic we would have been to return, despite the excellent food.

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

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.
