    This was a great place to eat for 4 people. Unfortunately, we had a table with several unruly kids sitting next to us that made the ambiance and noise level not perfect. Our server was fantastic and the food was very good.

    We love this restaurant My only disclaimer is that they placed the food directly on the table without regard to who ordered it Also unfortunately our favorite Greek wine there was not available by the glass but by the bottle For one person 72$ was quite expensive There were plenty of servers but they did not coordinate the service

    We've eaten here a number of times and never been disappointed. The saganaki is a great treat. My lamb was excellent and my partner's fish was outstanding. Even the cocktails (burnt manhattan and Estia spritzer) were off the charts great.

    Went before the opera. My husband and I had the pre theater dinner. A variety of choices for an amazing price - and will please your palate. Also had the grilled langostinos which were out of this world - can’t wait to go back for these. The martinis were excellent and the wine list will provide many choices to complement your meal.

    Great food and service - the octopodi was excellent. Wine list was not as advertised on the web site - reduced from 300 varieties to about 20 - but had a lovely bottle of Xinomavro 2018 nonetheless.

    Visited as a family to celebrate birthdays. Arrived slightly past our reservation time, but very friendly staff seated us immediately. Great service from start to finish, great menu and meal was wonderful! Food came out without delays, but we did not feel rushed. Not overcrowded, but busy enough with positive energy. Will definitely return!

    Gorgeous restaurant, however; I was very disappointed in the presentation of my entree! I was excited to go to Estia for my birthday dinner with friends. I love lamb, so I ordered the lamb trahana which was lamb removed from the bone, chopped up and served over pasta. The problem was that the chopped-up lamb was mixed with gravy and formed into the shape of a long, dark brown log on the plate. I couldn't believe that the chef sent the plate out like that. I didn't want to ruin my night, so I didn't complain, but; I was taken visually taken aback. One of my companions, remarked about the appearance as well. Unfortunately, this is what I remember the most from that evening. I give them 5 for ambience, and service, but 1 for entree presentation. My friend sent her Moussaka back because it was too salty. The roasted chicken and the salmon entrees were fine. I love baklava and was looking forward to this treat, unfortunately; it was too salty, so I sent it back for the walnut cake. I wanted everything to be special, but; overall it was a letdown. Sadly, this portion of my evening was a disappointment.
