Estia had been highly recommended by friend who live in Philadelphia and it lived up to its billing. Estia has the feeling of a warm Mediterranean home & and offers a menu of authentic specialties, that are simply prepared. We had party of six, and as we asked lots of questions, he skillfully guided us to the right answer: A... More

It was a challenge to get into this restaurant, as it is in the theatre district. However it was definitely worth it. I had the salmon and my husband had the braised pork, They were both outstanding and the Greek dessert galaktoboureko was outstanding. Definitely worth the wait!

We were two adults, one child and a young teen and we all enjoyed the food, the experience, the ambience and the service. We took advantage of the theatre 3 course dinner menu and it was excellent. Flavorful, lots of lemon (which I love about Greek Food) and a special treat was the best fried potatoes - Greek style -... More

Very good food in a very large noisy environment. Can be a fun experience for six or more people, but not so conducive for two.

We have been to Estia many times and often eat in the wine cellar, which must be reserved and is for groups up to 16. The food is outstanding! We usually share appetizers, including the Estia chips, which are zucchini and eggplant chips with a delicious Greek sauce, spanakopita, and Greek salad, which has the best tomatoes. They fly them...

Very good classic Greek food. Close to Theaters. Reservations recommended. Tell the wait staff you are going to a show and they will get you out on time.We selected off the Theater menu and all were happy.

This is a lovely spot with beautiful decor but very loud - acoustics are awful. We had a delicious meal of Black Sea bass and the starters were wonderful as well especially the zucchini chips. Whilst we were seated we witnessed three separate groups ask to be seated elsewhere so perhaps the acoustics are better in other parts of the... More

We had a very tasty Mothers Day dinner here. Halibut, salads and spreads, leg of lamb and Black Sea Bass all very tasty. Very nice ambience and staff was friendly. My complaint is that I ordered off the whole fresh fish menu: I ordered "about a pound". I was later told that the fish were big today and it would... More
