Had a business dinner here during the week and found this place welcoming and enjoyable. Seafood was nicely prepared although not as flavorful and creative as I had hoped. Service was attentive. Prices were on the high end. Tried to gently joke with the wait...More

Restaurant did an excellent job with a large party. Grilled octopus was tender. Calamari was good as well — tender and not over cooked. Lamb was ordered medium rare but came out very rare — my only gripe. Baclava was good for dessert.

I had a good experience at Estia. One down point though was that it was packed when I dined there and so it was very noisy. It is definitely not a place for a romantic dinner on Fridays. For the good points, our waiter was...More

Horiatitki Salata and Calamari are a must for appetizers. The whole-fish Sea Bass was excellent, although if you're uncomfortable, it can be prepared sans fish head. Comfortable setting. Service was very good. Great place for a couples dinner or a special event with several guests.

No dress code, but smart casual would be consistent with other diners.
