Greek
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.

The bartenders were very nice and attentive after we had an issue with the dark haired hostess with glasses.
we were suppose to sit outside and my husband asked for a larger table than a 2 top and she told us that if we didn't take the 2 top - we would have to go in line for next available. Of course, she sat 3 tables outside ahead of us..she needs some customer service training as she was not pleasant and it was slow for a saturday night.
We ended up eating at the bar... we didn't want to engage with her any more but would have preferred to eat outside if this hostess was better with paying clients.

This was our 5th visit to Estia Radnor and it was a special occasion (Father's Day). We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait 20 minutes. When seated the table rocked severely so a waiter fixed it. Another server literally threw bread on the table. The air conditioning was up too high and we kept our coats on the entire meal. We ordered the prix fixe menu and the first course was great. Entrees were VERY small - a piece of fish that was maybe 3 ounces and for the other entree-- one half of one small eggplant!! Then the desert (sorbet) was one very small child-sized mini scoop with no garnish. We are used to portions being smaller for a prix fixe menu, but this was was extremely skimpy. THEN the bill came with an upcharge for asparagus with my husband's entree after the waiter said "you can choose ANY SIDE" and never mentioned an upcharge. We left hungry.

The food as Estia is always fantastic. It's a little pricey, but that's why we've taken to saving it for special occasions.

Dining at Estia Radner is a true food experience. We started with their delicious Greek salad.The freshest tomatoes ever, flown in from FL, in a simply wonderful vinaigrette dressing. The salad was served with complimentary bread and hummus. We ordered a bottle of excellent and reasonably priced malbec from Washington State. Entrees were the grilled lamb chops - best I ever tasted, and the lobster linguini which was also excellent. Our waiter, Ellis, was helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes we ordered. We will ask for him in the future. All in all a first rate experience.

Our server had three tables. All with 8 or more people and he just couldn’t do it. Too many drinks and food orders. Our food was rushed and the flavor bland. Usually a great place and the Estia Chips still reign supreme, but that was it in this night.

I love the food at Estia! Freshest fish around.
Can get a bit noisy, but it is extremely popular so it is always crowded.
One of my favorites!

This felt like an expense account restaurant. The food was fine, but nothing to justify the $300 total for appetizers, 2 drinks, meal, and no dessert. It was hard to know what you were spending because the fish was priced per pound and you had no way of knowing what the "serving" would be. The service was fine, but not up to par for the cost of the restaurant. Our waiter would forget to bring us water and our table was wobbly. For the cost we could have had a much better meal somewhere else.

Service was excellent, however, food was not good. Estia chips greasy, seafood not fresh. Very disappointed because we always have a good meal there. For a Sunday night the chef must of changed.

Hi LynAnn, We take these matters very seriously and would like to investigate this further, please email us at info@estiarestaurant or call the location with further details so we can pinpoint where you sat. It's not typical of us to serve seafood that is not fresh since our product frequently sells out. Looking forward to your email. Kind Regards, Gus Pashalis

Aside from the fact that there other tables available, my companion and I were shown to a squeezed in table along a bankette. When I asked for another table, the hostess said there were no others available. I responded by saying we would eat elsewhere and walked out. Noticing that there was outdoor seating on the front terrace. I asked if any seating was available outside. When she responded affirmatively, my friend immediately accepted the offer. The hostess then walked us around to the side of the building where no one else was seated. At this point my friend agreed, but I was truly disappointed. While I am not a “regular”, I do eat there numerous times a year.

Maybe I should have asked for a larger more open table when I booked.

A favorite Greek Taverna. A little pricey for what is offered, but the food is delicious. Nice assortment of Greek white and red wines on the wine list, but again a little high in terms of Mark -up.

Estia is one of our favorite restaurants. We go as often as possible. We prefer sitting away from the bar for noise level and privacy. We had a great round table which is perfect for our party of six. We had birthday recognized even thought the wait staff were not informed formally.
