About Estia Taverna – Radnor
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.

Estia Taverna – Radnor Ratings and Reviews

Have grown to really enjoy this restaurant even if a bit on the expensive side.
Fresh fish flown in daily from the Mediterranean is wonderful and unique feature,
but of course price. Quality of food and preparation is excellent!

I was disappointed with the food. I may be over critical coming from a greek family but it wasnt as good as i had hoped. The saganoki was not fully cooked, the calamari was greasy, and the lobster did not warrant the $70 price tag. I can say i was there and tried, but will not be returning.

We loved Estia! My husband and I chose this place for a long needed date night and really enjoyed our experience. My sea bass was delicious - what a treat to have that after so long. My husband loved his grilled octopus appetizer. And we both absolutely loved the hummus, warm pita bread and the walnut cake and vanilla gelato. My meal totally killed my diet but it was worth it!
We'll definitely be back. We loved the atmosphere, the wine and the service. too. I recommend this restaurant for a date night or girls night out.

Estia is the best restaurant in the area without question. Delicious, healthy options and very friendly, knowledgeable staff. We have never had a bad experience here. It can be a bit noisy at times but it has an energetic feel. Highly recommend!

Estia in Radnor never ceases to amaze me. The food is the freshest around- you will not find juicier tomatoes ANYWHERE!!!!! Seriously, where do they get them? The customer service at this restaurant is TOP NOTCH! It doesn't matter how long we have been away, the manager Gina still remembers our favorite table and drinks!! She makes you feel like you are the only people dining in the restaurant. Another delicious, memorable dinner at Estia!! We will be back again and again!

We have dined at this location on several occasions.. This visit was not very satisfactory. The kitchen was overwhelmed and food was poorly prepared. COLD
Our server was very upset about the situation and notified the manager. He did comp the meals, which was appreciated, but certainly did not make up for a very unpleasant dining experience.

At Estia Taverna the food is very, very good, fresh and authentic. But, it is also very pricy. It is one of those restaurants where if you have to "ask the price" you should not go. I love the greek salad here too. The wine list is extensive, with a great selection of Greek wines. I love the place, I crave the place. We go whenever we can, but we have save up for it.
We took a friend visiting from Australia to Estia and she ordered the Moussaka. Her Moussaka came out warm not hot. It was quickly whisked away and brought back to the table without being in the ceramic ramekin. Shouldn't the sous chef or the waiter used the "ole" finger test (or a thermometer) in the kitchen initially? However, the Moussaka she said was excellent.

Too noisy, service too slow, food just okay. It was a Sunday evening and people at the next table thought they were having their own private party and they were standing up and moving about and crowding our table. Obnoxious Main Liners who think only think of themselves. Had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled. Waiter disappeared for long stretches of time. Will not go back.

We went with friends on Friday of Labor Day weekend. It was very crowded but the food and service were excellent. Having just been in Greece, we were seeking some authentic Greed food and were not disappointed. The eggplant and octopus were delicious.

This restaurant was chosen by a coworker who thought it would be a nice change of pace for a business dinner and she was right. We had a table of 7 people and EVERYONE raved about the look of the restaurant and the food. I am planning to bring my spouse back for a special occasion.

This Estia has yet to disappoint. I loved the food, the appetizers, the wine, the easy casual atmosphere, and the bill was correct. Friendly bar service, nice people. Don't miss the kalamari, the fried zucchini chips and the Tarama. I thought their Greek wine list was very well-thought out and has improved markedly from years ago at the downtown sister store.

Food was excellent particularly all sea food. Restaurant was noisy And with music was almost impossible to hear regular table conversation. Quality of the food however made up for any noise distraction. we were lucky to sit as far away from the music as possible, still had trouble hearing. Music quality was good but too much in an already noisy setting.

I had to wait for 30-40 minutes for us to get our drinks. After waiting over 2 hours our food finally came, my fish was not what I ordered, and the food came out cold. When I asked for the check I noticed that 18% gratuity was already added. When I spoke to the manager I was told that the poor service was not the waiter's fault because they hd a shortage in the kitchen. Normally I wouldn't mind but the manager's response really annoyed me because it didn't address the fact it took 2 hours for food to come, when it did come it was ice cold, 1 order was incorrect, and it took 30 minutes just to get our drinks. I would suggest they not automatically add a 18% tip when staff is this unprofessional and uninterested in doing their job.
I would lime to add that I routinely visit the Estia at Broad and Locust in the city and the service there is outstanding compared to this place. Save your money and go to Red Lobster instead, basically its the same service, to be honest you may get better service at Red Lobster

The food is delicious. Perfectly prepared with a great selection. The drinks are well made and large. Our server was funny and made great recommendations and helped us make selections. We love it here and will go back soon. Valet Service was friendly and efficient - beautiful crowd of people.

Overpriced and the food was only okay. Shrimp Orzo @ $28 had mostly orzo and 6 small shrimp. The Greek salad @ $15 had 2 pieces of Feta and otherwise, greens and a few olives. Moussaka was not very good---too heavy on the sauce without enough meat or eggplant. Our waitress was trying to oversell, pushing us towards fish which is charged by the pound and weighed before they removed head or bone. She appeared disappointed when we didn't choose the fish. Very noisy. We were charged for an extra drink. When we pointed it out to the waitress, she said that she was sorry, and we had to ask her to remove the charge--she didn't automatically offer.

Savory Greek treats in a cosy Mediterranean ambiance. Greek salad and tzatziki are terrific. Fish seems fresh. Some dishes a bit pricey, but generally decent value considering how tasty everything is. Love the Greek music, can do without the rock band on weekend nights. Brunch is really a special treat. Opa!

While the food was good, it is far better to venture to Estia's downtown location for the meal. From service to atmosphere the dining experience downtown (we have been there) worth the cost of parking downtown, the inconvenience of having to bypass the local (for us) venue, and all else. Note my recommendations yield no check marks for this location.

My reservation was honored as soon as I arrived. The place was packed and it was noisy but it did not detract from the experience. The food simply is spectacular. The zucchini chips are incredible. I ordered the Papoutsaki which also was delicious. Service was excellent even though the place was crowded on a Friday night. Highly recommended.
