We had a good meal here at Estia, although the extremely poor service let it down. The server was rather impatient, lacked interest and appeared to be in a hurry even though the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. All of the other servers seemed to be pleasant and attentive. Overall worth a shot if you don't have our server!

We stumbled upon Estia unexpectedly and can not stop eating here every time that we are in Halifax. The service is great and the food is amazing...lunch and dinner! I highly recommend trying dessert, ask your server what to chose, everything that we have had is amazing.

Quite a nice restuarant. Not super upscale, but the food was quite tasty. I enjoy a pesto chicken panini with french fries (~$11). Prices were very reasonable, especially for the generous portion size. The service was okay, nothing particular to report on (not the best service ever, not the worst). Restaurant is clean, quiet. A bit more casual than I anticipated, but nevertheless quite nice. Good location, right on Spring Garden Road. I would definitely go back again!

Absolutely nothing wrong with Estia but there's nothing that takes into a higher category. Calamari was light and nice but simple items like lemon roasted potatoes are bland. The atmosphere is clean but not that warm. All in all not disappointed but it may be while before we go back.
