Wonderful Greek restaurant in Center City, Philly. Warm, cozy, yet elegant atmosphere that makes you feel like you are dining in another world. Family size portions, the appetizers are wonderful. Nice wine list, whole fish so freshly prepared. A bit pricey with slower than average service and a bit loud if you are seeking a quiet environment, but we went... More

If you enjoy Greek this is a can't miss meal. The Saginaki and Octopadi were excellent. Topped with a Greek salad it made the appetizer round enjoyable. Take the waiter recommended wine and you won't go wrong. We split the main with two taking fish and two the lamb chops. All were excellent. If you get the lamb chops, just... More

If you fancy Italian food, be sure to visit Estia. Nice food with nice wine pairings. There are better places centre city but this is still a great choice for a night out. You won't be disappointed.

Great family style restaurant. Food is really quite delicious. Service is slow. We had to flag down the server for drinks and to order food.

We had dinner at Estia for a Family gathering. Aside from being noisy (we moved tables to be in a quieter part) it was a quality experience. The staff was very helpful in guiding our meal decision. We split the WONDERFUL "country salad" and for a main course, we both ordered the Roast Chicken. They were stingy with the Lemon... More

We have been dining at Estia for years. My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner there a few years ago. The food is amazing-always fresh and well prepared. The service is friendly and accommodating. We love the ambience as well! It is great to see all of the fresh seafood displayed. Great wine list.

Enjoyed our family dinner very much, with appetizers, mains and dessert. The only real disappointment was the $12 lemon drop martini was not cold, not very tasty and for that simple reason that we think you need to get your cocktails and drinks right, especially at a restaurant like this one.

Wonderful Greek restaurant! Food here is delicious. Traditional Greek cooking in a beautiful atmosphere. I strongly suggest the fresh grilled fish. There is a room downstairs for private parties as well.

The food is always fabulous. I have never had an issue with any server - they have all been wonderful. I love the atmosphere here. The fixed lunch & pre-theater menus are wonderful.
