"The fish was decent, but at these prices "decent" is not good enough. Starters were unimaginative and tasteless, presentation was poor. Server went on and on about the specials and each of the main courses, but was MIA rest of the meal, making the service (or lack of it) the worst aspect of a pretty poor meal."

"The service was terrible. One of our party waited 50 minutes to get his lunch while the other 3 were served. The manager came over but did not make a great impression. I have eaten there many times but may not go for a long while."

"Our server was a little peculiar and on his own pace. Nothing on the menu could be adjusted. Would not bring my salad out with my meal, I had to have it first. Domata salad and hummus/bread were really good. Chicken souvlaki was good, too, but hardly ANY vegetables on the skewer--my favorite part. Given how expensive it is, won't be rushing to go back, but not a bad place to check out."

"Brought out-of-town guests here during our first visit to Estia. The ambiance of the restaurant is superb, and our table was nicely placed in a back corner where it was quieter. The noise level in the remainder of the restaurant seemed more moderate. Our waiter was attentive and quick, but there were appetizers that were forgotten, and the overall attentiveness to beverages was suboptimal. The food was extraordinary. We strongly recommend the lamb chops - spectacular!! Will definitely be back."

"This was our first time at Estia! We loved it! Outstanding! The meal, the service, the ambiance - on a scale of 1-10, we gave Estia a rating of 10++. Our server, Betty, was so nice and very attentive! And the bathrooms were clean and beautiful! This is a restaurant that knows its business! And, thank you to Neal, one of the managers, for taking the time to explain some of the wine offerings."

"This was our 6th or 7th meal there, and this time we took the economical theater prix fixe. Outstanding food, as always; great service; and the meal was timed perfectly given our concert start time."

"Estia offers an extensive menu, but its pre-theater fixed-price meal is a great value. You get three courses, chosen from several choices--all of them delicious. And the service is friendly, attentive, and efficient, getting us to our concert at the Kimmel Center with time to spare."

"We were in Phili for a two-day conference. Estia was near our hotel, so on our first evening in town convenience was a factor. We went with friends, and sat in a lovely booth which allowed for a good conversation. My husband and I had grilled dover sole (him) and grilled shrimp (me), and both were excellent. Our guests had the lamb shank and lamb chops, which they liked. The only oddity was that the waiter opened up a second bottle of wine without us having prompted to do so -- we thought it a bit forthcoming, but since we had planned on a second one anyways, we let it be. Apart from this incident (which was probably a simple error), the service was correct albeit a bit abrupt (the restaurant was bustling). Because we liked the food, my husband and I went back the following night, and this time we sat on the bar. It is an elegant stone bar with comfortable high chairs, a super place for a tete-a-tete. Our experience was simply perfect: gracious service, the same two dishes were truly excellent (and the staff was accommodating in securing a smaller than normal-sized dover sole), and our first course -- octopus -- was some of the best seafood we have ever tasted this side of the Atlantic. It rekindled memories of seafood meals in the harbor of the Greek island Simi. The restaurant is not cheap, but you get serious value for money. Back in the hotel, a friend asked for a recommendation, and we did not hesitate."
