Superb! I had dinner with friends at Estia before a concert at the Academy of Music. Unlike many of the Center City restaurant’s near the theaters, this is not a tourist trap. The food was sublime and the ambience lovely. I highly recommend this restaurant.

You have to go. The food invites you at the door. The decor is lovely and when I had the food. Me and my husband knew we were coming back. Everything we had was good. Our waiter recommended such wonderful choices and even me a picky eater tried and enjoyed everything I had and what my hubby had. It was an all around great experience and I recommend that you try it.

Decor Classy, Food Great, Waiters 'just doing their job'

We went last night (and have been once before). Once again, we loved the elegant decor and the food.------
They have $30 'pre theater' dinner (app, entree & basic dessert -walnut cake or fruit) that is a good value.-----
When we entered, we were hesitantly greeted by an attractive lady who was minimally friendly (Hey lady, we're about to drop $100 in this place, lighten up!)-----
We loved our table and were promptly given our menus. A few minutes later our waiter asked for our drink order. He was trying very hard to be 'cute' and amusing???-----
Before ordering, he gave us a brief lecture on ordering QUICKLY because 'some people come in an hour before the theater and expect to have special service' (We were there at 5:15 for a 7:30 curtain......)
When we asked a question, he said 'I thought I'd already answered that!' (Losing points rapidly.......)
A salad (Horiatiki) was large enough for four people but was 90% tomatoes! The food came hot and was delicious.
Not sure if we'd go back; the attitude of most of the staff needs major improvement (friendlyness training?). Maybe they all got free Botox shots and couldn't smile

Lovely food & service, but front management can use some sha

It has pretty much all already been said about this fine restaurant. The food's great and occasionally verges on the exquisite, and table service was perfect, even on a very busy pre-theater Saturday night.

My one gripe is that it was pouring cats & dogs on the night we arrived and we waited, and waited, for the valet to show up and park our car, went twice into the restaurant to inquire about it only to be told by the reception folks that he was there--somewhere. Finally, after nearly 15 minutes, one of our guests already present in the restaurant left the bar and parked the car herself. This might not be such a big deal, I suppose, but one of our party in the car was a Senior using a cane-- and she was the one who made the inquiries at the desk about the missing valet! Nobody showed any particular concern for her situation. At a restaurant of this caliber, I would have expected one of the front desk people to volunteer to deal with it --hence one less star here than I would normally have given it.

Ok food, horrible service, worse management

Went for a romantic dinner Saturday night and was horribly disappointed. We were put next to a rowdy, drunk table who ruined the dinner of all nearby diners, oblivous to management. There appeared to be 2 managers, but they just hung out in front of the kitchen all night, and in ear shot of this table, but did nothing.

I order the calamari app. and when I received it it was completely different from the description in the menu. I asked the waitress and she said they were 2 calamaris, and that I should have been specific. I told her I wasn't aware of that, but I wanted the other, she brought it and charged for BOTH!

My husband's $40 fish was burnt.

It took 25 minutes to get the check.

The entire time we could not have a conversation because of the obnoxious table next to us.

Horrible experience! Don't go!

Excellent food

So impressed! We had a very attentive server who took time to explain things on the menu if we had questions. She also overheard us saying the salads were large and asked us if we wanted to remove one of the sides from the dinner. That was considerate. I ordered the hailbut which was very tasty and melted in my mouth. Portion sizes were adequate! I also ordered the roasted potatoes based on recommendation and they were to die for! I never knew roasted potatoes so could be light and tasty. My friend ordered the 3 day marinated Lamb Chops which he kept raving about. The salads we had were both excellent, the saganaki cheese was great and the tzatziki sauce was excellent as well. We will definitely go back! It is located in downtown Philly so in the middle of all the action.

the best!

I went to a graduation party this weekend at Estia. It was the first time I was ever there although I have heard great things about it. The party was held in the banquet room which I was totally impressed by, the exposed wood ceiling beams and limestone bar where breath taking and gave it that antique effect. My sister is getting married soon and my mother and I have been talking about a place for her bridal shower, after trying the food at Estia I was completely sold and actually booked the party this morning! The woman I spoke with was so helpful and provided me with all the information I needed and offered a variety of options, at the end of the phone call I was blown away by the price for everything that I asked for it. All my future parties and get-togethers are going to be at Estia, I recommend them to everyone!
