Greek
The stunning restaurant, which is the first of its kind in South Jersey, 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 ambience is accentuated with whitewashed walls.

My partner forgot his mask and there were no masks available at the restaurant. I run a business and we always have extra masks for guests. Instead my partner had to run to the Barnes and Noble to buy one and we wasted 15 minutes with that. As it was we were crunched for time with an 830p reservation and having to leave at 10pm. So, even the 15 minutes mattered for our experience. I also thought that $40 for lobster pasta was too $$$, but it was delicious. Service was excellent.

Wonderful experience for a girls nite out on trying new eateries! We enjoyed it all the food, atmosphere & the seating arrangements especially during COVID-19. I recommend it to anyone who want to try something different and I requested authentic Greek food🤗

This was our fifth or sixth time eating at Estia. Each time we've had a wonderful experience. Our party of four enjoyed the Mediterranean Spreads, Lamb Chops, Moussaka, and Lavraki. Everything was fresh and prepared to perfection. We ate indoors and although I love the coziness of a full, elbow to elbow restaurant, they are following our governor's mandates and there was copious space between us and the next table. They also provided outdoor heated seating. It was a wonderful meal and we hope to return again soon.

Sitting in the parking lot facing the traffic was not ideal, but the food was exceptional and service great. We really enjoyed the Spinach Pie appetizer and the Greek cheesecake for dessert. Our first time here, but definitely will not be our last!

We go 3 to 4 times a year. Food is consistent & good. However, portions got smaller. It's not quiet in a bad way. We feel safe re: CoVid. Waiters are not consistent & feel they do not represent appropriate service for the price/money being spent. Expect an easy $100 bill for 2 (w/o drinks) - but we really enjoy the food & ambiance regardless of Social Distancing Stuff!!! We'll keep going.

Although website stated outdoor dining only, since weather was not acceptable, dining was moved indoors where only four 2 seated tables and 3 four seated spaces were provided. Kept to guidelines for social distancing.

Love this restaurant!!! If you like fish, Estia is the best! We had the mussels in red. Fabulous! Then the shrimp appy. 4-huge shrimp grilled and prepared perfectly. Then we shared a whole fish and everything was excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive and offered suggestions that were spot on. If you haven't been here before I would highly recommend you start with the Estia chips. It's usually the first item we order. Estia is not inexpensive, but it is a great place to dine on the freshest and best tasting fish around.

We had a lovely delicious meal, food and service were great! Service was perfect and the outdoor set up was really cute. Can I suggest some Greek background music to drown out the car noise?

I went for dinner with my grandmother - she loves this restaurant. We split a large Greek salad and each got the octopus appetizer. It was the perfect amount of food. The food is always amazing and high quality, so you get what you pay for. Due to Covid we had to sit outside so it was loud with the highway, but they are doing their best in the time of a pandemic!

You definitely get what you pay for! I was shocked even at the portion sizes as each dish came out. And so much flavor! They also start you toasted bread and hummus for the table at no charge. I'll definitely be there for a return visit!

We had a great experience at Estia that not only included a delicious meal but a lovely setting that felt completely safe to all of us. Our meal was at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. We ate in the front room, which was perfect. It was a sunny brisk fall afternoon and we wanted a little protection from the elements but felt completely safe because the doors were wide open and so, it really felt like the room had only 3 walls - free-flowing air. The tables were quite spaced apart and we, probably because of the hour, were the only customers enjoying the space. I also appreciated that the tables are big enough that there was ample space (for safety) between me and my dining partners - there were 4 of us. Everything we ordered was fantastic and the service was impeccable!
