About Estia Taverna – Radnor
Radnor, PA 19087
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

Estia provides a great meal with Mediterranean flavors. The server went above and beyond by providing a free dessert treat as he had overheard that we were celebrating. All service was very good. Only imperfection is the acoustically challenged spaces. There is little to absorb sound and it can be quite noisy. Worth that for the food and service.

I am recently back in the area and this is my second visit to Estia. Our server was enthusiastic and knowledgeable with great recommendations . The Stateside martini with stuffed olives was perfect, the grilled octopus had a wonderfully smoky flavor and the tuna appetizer very well done. My friend and I were so satisfied that we skipped right to desert. I can't say enough about the pistachio gelato and coconut pistachio confection we shared. Estia will definitely be our new place to meet!

Outstanding service. Food was good. The Lamb chops were substantial and delicious. The hummus was fresh and had a surprising kick. The homemade phyllo dough on the spanakopita was not as flaky as I would have liked but the spinach and feta filling was outstanding and the portion was huge. I was not a fan of the walnut cake. It reminded me of fruit cake. Atmosphere was welcoming. They are known for their fish so next time we will try that but on this first visit we chose to try some of our favorite foods for a comparison. Overall it was good and we will go again.

Had a wonderfully memorable first experience at Estia. We had a little but of trouble finding the restaurant but once we got there we were so impressed. Impeccable service from our waiter Rick. Everything he suggested (especially the octopus, the best I have ever had) was to die for. Great wine suggestion (Pinot Noir) from the manager who was warm and friendly. And the end of the meal she brought us a special Greek "dessert wine" which was such a nice touch as we didn't mention it was our anniversary. Neither of us had ever had "dessert wine" so it was such a treat. When we were leaving, we asked her how she knew it was a special occasion and she said she overheard us talking and wanted to do something special. It was very thoughtful and was the perfect way to end our meal. Trully an absolutely unforgettable evening from start to finish. My wife and I cant wait to return.

Best seafood restaurant on the main line. Fresh, tasty, the ingredients are top notch, the recipes are perfectly executed! The service is incredible and we feel so welcomed every time. They take the time and make sure you have everything. Either you come as a family or for an anniversary, it's always perfect. R is the best!

Always such a pleasure here! Every time I go, I think about ordering something other than the organic salmon and horta, but I just can't do it. (Aside from awesome apps like the tuna tartare, estia chips, shrimp saganaki...)
Great food, amazing service. Spendy but worth it :)

From the moment we walked in we had a great experience.
The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable - always there but not obtrusive.
The meal itself was wonderful- grilled octopus, crab cake, grilled eggplant and a pasta/seafood dish- all well seasoned and delicious

Our server, Minh, was extremely polite and knowledgeable. He checked in with us between all the courses to see how everything was. We noticed that he had quite a few tables but he still gave us his full attention.

The food is excellent and seems to be made with healthy recipes in mind. Spinach pie was a little different than traditional recipes, but we liked that it was not dripping with butter in between the phyllo layers. Grape leaves were filled with couscous, rather than rice, for a delicious twist. Bifteki souvlaki and lamb pita were delicious; we ordered roasted potatoes instead of fries and they were beautifully flavored. A delicious lunch with loads of leftovers that we ate for dinner! We were given a $50 gift certificate and we went $3 over.

I have been to this restaurant several times but will never go back again. We were served mussels where the mussels were so tiny, they could not be picked up with a fork! The sauce was not good, too garlicky and both my dinner mate and I had heartburn afterwards. Also I found out this time that Estia charges an obnoxious amount for the simple wines they serve, i.e., 5 times the market price.

I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the food. I could not even cut my steak it was so tough and very expensive. The server saw the meat and I feel as though she should have done something about it. I would never return to Estia.

Despite making an OpenTable reservation four days in advance for a party of four we were seated next to the loud live music near the front door and the manager refused to reseat us so that we could actually carry on a conversation. There were empty tables available but we were told moving was impossible... He just couldn't do it.
We politely asked for another table upon seeing where the hostess was bringing us. There was NO reason for the manager to simply say NO to moving us. I have dined at this restaurant before but will never return after being treated so rudely by the management.
We were told other "better" tables were already reserved. I have had this experience with other Open Table reservations at other restaurants... Being given the less desirable table. I'm beginning to wonder if this is in response to using this website.

Got my order wrong then claimed I didn't know what I was ordering when it was clearly listed. Made me feel bad for even bringing it up. Server wasn't very attentive nor knowledgeable about the menu in terms of dietary restrictions.

I have been to this restaurant several times. The service is always wonderful. We love the food. It is delicious and the portions are generous. The atmosphere in this restaurant makes you feel like you are really in Greece, and while the food is authentic, the menu is abundant with varied choices. We love going back.

Service a little to pushy, after we ordered drinks and appetizers, we told waitress we wanted to wait 15 minutes or so before we ordered dinner. She came back in 5. After dinner again we said we want 15 minutes or so to digest and finish our drinks before ordering dessert. Again she was back in 5 asking if we decided. Dinner to check was 1 hour and 15 minutes. Too rushed for a relaxing Saturday night. Food was excellent.
