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

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.

We go to this place often, either as a couple, or with my parents, or in this case for family get-together (group of 7 this time). Reservations are easy to make through Open Table. Hostesses are friendly and accommodating. The ambience is very nice, with good seating and good view. Waiters are very good. Food is also very good, especially the Greek salad, and lamb chops.

Food was delicious. However we waited Clise to an hour for entrees after asking several times. Told kitchen was busy. But other tables were getting served. Maybe back tables aren't a good location! Entrees were Luke warm and dry! Very disappointed considering our guests were first timers!!!

The salads are very fresh; I still don't understand where or how they consistently score the most tasty and voluptuous tomatoes. But one gaffe put a damper on this otherwise good meal. I was charged $3.25 for a club soda not once, but twice. When the waiter asked if I wanted a refill, he should have warned me that it would cost another $3.25, which is already exorbitant for 2 oz. of water with carbonation. We ended up paying $6.50 -- for water with bubbles. And that's why I gave the service and value low ratings.

We had never tried octopus, and I absolutely loved it. It was prepared
so well, not chewy, but rich and flavorful. I had the prawns for dinner and
my husband had the sole. Both unbelievably good. Estia is a unique
culinary experience, and must be experienced to appreciate.

Restaurant decor is cool food is creative and good. Wine list is $$$$$.
Seated us at 2 horrible locations: one table along the window where sun blasted us and the other on the cushion crack of a banquet table. Honestly. Also, annoying - when sitting at banquet the guest sittingg in the chair is higher than the guest in the banquet. Degrading to women who are offered to take the banquet seat. U should consider adjusting height.
Server inattentive: never checked on us after entree arrived and long (over 10 min) wait for a check. It was faster to go to wawa to buy hagendaz than wait for server to put in a dessert order. It killed me to leave a decent tip.
Lagostino by pound were NOT a good value, need to rethink this entree. We ordered 1 lb and we'recharged for 1.5lb.

This is my new favorite restaurant. Greek with heavy emphasis on seafood, but plenty of items for those who aren't seafood fans. The freshest fish, flown in daily. Outstanding crab cakes. Excellent classic Greek salad. Try the zucchini and eggplant chips as an appetizer. To die for!

Food was delicious tho the baklava was not as good as usual..a bit soggy on top
Service was excellent
We have had our waiter rigle before and he is the best
Estia is one of my fave restaurants
It is beautiful and the food is wonderful
I don't know where they get their tomatoes but winter or summer they are incredible
Next time I would like to sit outside
Probably a good bit quieter

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Estia Taverna in Radnor, PA. We shared a greek salad with the reddest and juiciest tomatoes around and the portion for two was perfect. My Dover Sole was excellent and my husband devoured his roasted chicken accompanied by an incredible risotto. Our only complaint was that it was very hard to hear yourself think let alone talk. For me, the noise level took away from the dining experience since we had to speak loudly throughout the entire meal in order to communicate. The prices were also on the high side so be mindful if that is a concern. The sole was $48.00 per pound, weighed with bones, skin, head and tail. I would guess that the final quantity on my plate was around 1/2 pound.

The grilled Octopus salad on fava bean puree is a must try.
If you like mediterranean prawns and don't mind spending $60/lb, try the Carabineros prawns from Portugal.
$5 bloody marys and mimosas for Sunday brunch.
