    Awesome food! The service is impeccable. Our waitress Caitlin was so on point. Not a detail missed,friendly and professional. The drinks were great. What I'm not happy about is the table i was seated at...in the corner with a chair behind a existing booth and beside a brick chimney.In the back of the restaurant in a dark corner . I'm sorry this table is unacceptable and claustrophobic. If it wasn't for your great server Caitlin I was about to leave. I'm not judging your food, service , or staff ......just wrong to seat a 240 lb man in this position.

    Well we’ll well… What a extraordinary experience dining at Estia last night. Greek cuisine and service were impeccable. The ambiance is very cozy shedding rustic elegance with stone arches, earthy tiles and old world wooden furniture. One may think your inside a cave restaurant on the Med with enough wine and imagination. In reality this gemstone is across the street from the Kimmel music and arts center, so a dynamite choice for a pre theatre dinner. They offer a 3 course pre theatre menu loaded with a cornucopia of dazzling options for $40 bucks. Wowzers that’s incredibly impressive since your sitting in downtown Philly. The regular menu is a vast ocean of grilled meats, veggies and seafood with authentic Greek selections that entices you to order one of everything. The grilled octopus was the best we have ever had anyplace in the world. The Baklava and Spanakopita were both decadent and executed with panache. Give Estia a shot if your ever craving a trip to Greece and want to save on airfare. #ChefMurph #Killerfoodies

    We went on a Friday night and it was super busy, our table was squeezed in a spot and it was hard to move around but otherwise the food was fantastic.. crab cake is a must try, oysters were good! My friend and I both selected from the theatre menu and it a perfect amount of food. Service was a bit slow at the end of our meal but all around a good experience and would definitely return.

    I ordered the pre-theatre dinner. For a $5 supplement, I started with the Horiatiki salad. I was excellent. But my main course, lamb shank off the bone was overcooked and dried out as well as over salted. The speed of service, while great if one is in a rush for the theatre, is otherwise conducive to indigestion.

    Have been to this Estia many times and can confidently say I’ve never had a bad meal. Was very disappointed to be seated in an almost empty restaurant next to a table with a couple. A couple who audibly argued the entire time. It was uncomfortable. Service lacked luster.

    Estia is one of the adult restaurants in town. Romantic. Excellent food. Expensive. A good way to save some money is to share the ample portions.

    Our co-Ed book club of 8 visited Philadelphia for the weekend. An excellent dinner at Estia was a highlight. From the entertaining Greek waiter, to the delicious Greek and American food. Everything was excellent. The restaurant has a ton of character, beautiful open kitchen and lots of fun energy. Can’t wait to return.
