We love Greece, and often enjoy mediterranean cuisine. When you walk into this restaurant, you are taken to Greece before you even reach your table. Atmosphere is fantastic, cuisine and service are first-rate. So is their wine list,.

The best thing about Estia is the ambiance. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the server was attentive and knowledgeable. The food is good but given the amount of amazing restaurants in Philly— I never find it to be a stand out.

A good friend recommended this restaurant and we loved it! First of all the staff is friendly, professional, and attentive. Everything we ate was divine! Especially the Octopodi - grilled octopus! It was so tender - it melted in your mouth. The best all around...More
