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.

I dine at Radnor and bring friends. The last couple of times I requested a booth in the dining room. Both times they refined to seat me and my companion in one. We had a 7pm reservation and was told not on Sat. night. I have been in this restaurant on Sat nights and saw 2 people in the booths. Every time I come they say they’re reserved. I always reserve on my Open Table reservation page.
There were open tables for 4 people in the dining room and the Gen. Mgr. finally seated us at a 4 top. I have a people hearing someone from across a large table for 2.
If this is your inflexible policy, which is unfriendly customer service. The woman manager was very adamant about this issue.
This was Sat. Jan. 5th.

We split the Sea Bass, but noticed they left a lot of bones. I think it was because they were busy and it was NYE. They usually do a better job of deboning the fish. We split the spanakopita and Estia chips which are always delicious. You also can’t go wrong with the salted carmel baklava.

All were very satisfied with our food selections. Not being very hungry 3 of us ordered appetizers for
entrees plus your wonderful greek salad for the table. It was a great start for New Years eve before going to a private dessert soiree.Estia's is always high on our list for special occasions and will continue to stay there.

Our regular waiter was excellent in all ways but the 3 of the servers who were asked to bring 2nds of bread and hummus went off to do so but never returned. Our waiter remedied that tho it came well after or entrees were served.

Our dinner was at an early in the evening and noise level was moderate much to our liking.

Always enjoy dining at Estia. Did ask for specific table when making reservation on open Table, but when we arrived were told we couldn’t have it ( for a 4:45 reservation). We noticed other parties arriving after us being seated in that area when they objected to where they were being seated. Not good practice to employ with loyal customers!

We used to love Estia and frequently took guests or business associates. The service last Friday evening was either disinterested when you wanted something or overbearing when it came to removing dishes that you might still be "enjoying." The biggest disappointment was the Lavraki - always for me a reason to go to Estia. It was overcooked and dry... unfortunate for a fish that is now overpriced for what it is.

Over priced. The Greek Salad was an expensive disappointment. Nothing imaginative or creative.
The cocktails were very good. The Lamb Shank was okay as was the Orzo that came as a side. But again nothing memorable.

Excellent service, food, and ambiance.

If you go, definitely splurge and get some prawns or langoustines for your appetizer, and fish for your entree. Estia is known for their excellent seafood and you won’t be disappointed!

Also, the wine list is exceptional—definitely worth getting a bottle of wine with your dinner.

Always a great experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Stay away. Had to argue and fight with hostess after confirmed all of arrangements for a special birthday dinner for my husband. Waitress terrible. Never received my husbands appetizer. Poor attitude. Will never go back. Save your money! Too many other restaurants in the area that welcome you with a smile and do not spoil your dinner or upset you.!

Everything ordered for our party of 4 was excellent. We all shared the appetizers and bites of the entrees, delighting in the flavors. Portions were generous, yet we all found room for the desserts. Will surely visit again when the occasion arises. It's worth noting that this is a rather expensive place, although the food does merit the prices.
