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.

Everything is of high quality and so fresh tasting. Delicious! Can get noisy at peak times. Pricey but always great food and service. One of my favorite spots to dine.

Both the Radnor and the downtown Estia restaurants are superb First, the food is fresh and well prepared, and the menu has a good variety of interesting choices. The wines are well chosen, and the service is attentive without being overbearing.

Lovely restaurant with fun bar and very good happy hour selection. Especially good for fish lovers. Free parking available. I was disappointed that in spite of my reservation I was offered the worst table in a completely empty room. Though they allowed me to move I did not have a choice of table. I was given the next one over with a banquette. I originally sat in the banquette but the seat was so much lower that the table I had to change places with my partner. Only later did I see another woman with the same difficulty and I guess she complained because she was offered a pillow. I have not encountered this situation in the past so will eat there again but may opt for eating at the bar.

My only complaint was that we ordered a fish dish that was a special and were very surprised at the price when received the bill. Waiters should inform guests before they order. Other than that, a very good meal.

Delicious favorites include Estia "chips", any fish, lamb chops. Unfortunately. French fries were cold and seafood orzo was mostly octopus--very little shrimp or clams. Also our table enjoyed the spanikopita appetizer and grilled veggies. Service was efficient if brusque.

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.
