“Amazing Greek Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Having a Greek husband who is an excellent cook, I am very critical of dining at Greek restaurants and usually leave somewhat underwhelmed. Not the case at Estia! Everything that we had was truly amazing.

“An appropriate act to accompany your theater experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Ok, so I got a bit dramatic with the title, but after experiencing Carmina Burana at the Academy of Music, it fits. My first impression was of the cave/wine cellar decor. I loved it. The staff was excellent and knowledgable, helpful since we are new to greek cuisine. The use of lemon in the appetizers was well balanced. I loved the greek wine selection, wish they had a greek wine flight. We shared the fried greek cheese, sardines, oysters and octopus. Had the lamb chops for the entree - an excellently grilled chop. The decor, cuisine and prices are in line with a wonderful theater date night!

“Estia Philadelphia is amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

My favorite Philly restaurant. EVER. Greek food. The orchestra/theater specials are an amazing value. The chicken breast is to die for and I never order chicken at a restaurant. Delicous greek salad. Good service and great drinks. We eat here a lot.

“Fine Greek food, well served”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is our favorite place to eat. We go regularly and have a favorite table and waiter, but all the staff first rate. Wonderful fresh fish flown in from the Mediterranian regularly-always wonderfully cooked. Greek specialties taste as Greek food should. Best dish on the menu is the octopus appitizer-best ever anywhere. Wine list interesting.
