Not much to say other than excellent!!!!
Lovely, gracious, comfortable restaurant. Outstanding service, very welcoming. Food delicious. Portions and prices vary a lot - server's advice was spot on.
Octopus - delicious but very small portion. Spinach/cheese appetizer more like crepes wrapped around delicious filling than spanakopita - large portion, really good. Whole branzino well matched with green sauce recommended by server. Short rib was awesome but portion super big (high price seemed reasonable when I saw what we got - tender but not overcooked, really well seasoned and not overwhelmed by salt (as short rib often is). Very garlicky green sauce and yogurt sauce was perfect.
Sommelier very helpful - a totally gracious experience from the front door to the dinner and out in time for a concert.
We have been to the same place when it was called NAO. ESTIA was also very nice. Food and service was good. I would say though the food is over priced for the sharing amount that is being served. We generally try a lot of new fine dining places. This place will not make it to my top 10 list to come back again. . One time experience was good.
Order the halloumi!!😍
Service was phenomenal, specifically Tessa she was great. Would go back!
Enjoyed the food here, but found it pricey for the portion size. Also, I do not like it when I dish out a lot of money for a main course and then I have to order a side separately. How hard is it to throw some potatoes or vegetables on the plate for the price we are paying? They de-bone the whole fish for you and then put it back together on the plate, so it looks lovely. But would look lovelier with some colorful veggies.
Lovely ambiance and very nice staff.
I would not recommend this restaurant because the food is not good but trendy.
It is way overpriced for the quality of food
Great evening last Sunday. Amazing food and great service
A welcome surprise. Great evening with friends. Service was impeccable. Interesting wine selection for connoisseurs. Mains perfect for sharing or doing your own thing if you're hungry. We are still talking about the food - enjoyed everything from the fresh oysters, to the octopus and tuna tartare and then a shared place of Greek Branzino to die for. Relaxed atmosphere, comfortable. Definitely returning.
Beautiful decor, comfortable seating, highly knowledgable staff and outstanding service!
Loved it! We just got married and they send us a complimentary champagne to celebrate which I thought was really nice. Great environment and friendly staff.
We were quite looking forward to this evening as the menu looked great and it was our anniversary. The food was competent and good enough, but the only thing we felt was truly exceptional was the desserts. There were a couple of missteps in the service, including a forgotten dish and incorrect dishes being brought to the table. Given the price, and we're not particularly big eaters, portions were small. Overall, the experience was ok, though very pricey based both on what was consumed as well as in the context of comparable spend at other high level restaurants.
A nice and balanced fusion of Mediterranean and Canadian kitchen. Impressive wine list. The Turkish spoon salad was truly amazing! It was authentic and close to a proper Turkish dish more than any other ones on the menu. The brenzino was charred to perfection and it was buttery to mouth.
An excellent venue and ambiance. Food expertly prepared and service by our waiter Kelly was exceptional. Highly recommend.
Service was top notch and the food was excellent and full of amazing and unique flavours
The food was absolutely amazing and presentation to perfection!! Kelly are waiter was absolutely classy and professional!! Branzino fish was cooked to perfection ant the octopus 🐙 appetizer was to die for!!!
A must to go back again.
Excellent food and service!!
Great food and the service was excellent!! Loved dining upstairs - so cozy and perfect!
Can’t wait to return!
Excellent and imaginative food and great service
Terribly salty food, especially the calamari.
The Lamb sausage kebob was spongy in texture, so a big turnoff.
When Estia opened we would have highly recommended it to everyone.
Unfortunately the number of vegetarian options has steadily declined.
We can now only order appetizers and sides and it is just not good enough.
We are disappointed we now have to scratch this off our go-to list of local restaurants.
Food was mediocre. Ambiance was beautiful, but really surprised with the low quality food for such a nice restaurant.
Food is very good. My wife and I had 4 apps. Just let your server walk you through it. Short Rib? Very nice. BRANZINO? OMG
Wonderful food and super nice wait staff. Kitchen seemed backed up as it was an hour to get a fairly simple order delivered to our table.
Delicious food in a nice atmosphere. Only didn't give full stars because service was slow (but it was pleasant and helpful). I'll go back and recommend.
Very good food
Service was great
Our waiter was great, very helpful and friendly. Delicious food.Great ambiance.
Have to say that the dining experience here has never disappointed. Been here half a dozen times. Brought some friends and they thought the food was great!
I’ll be back!
Estia is a lovely oasis in a busy vibrant part of Toronto. It has a Mediterranean feel with a leafy courtyard in the front and a spacious indoor dining area.
The service was very attentive and staff knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Much of the food is cooked in a charcoal oven giving it a delicious flavour. We shared 3 starters; halloumi, octopus and eggplant with feta, all we're very good. For mains we all had different kebabs again all were cooked beautifully. The desserts are worth leaving room for too!
I would recommend Estia for a special occasion or if you want to treat yourself to something different. It was by far the best meal we had in our 3 week trip to North America.
This was my fifth or sixth time here, but first time on the patio. The food was fabulous, as usual, but th patio just raised it to that next level ov wonderfulness!!
Great spot for seafood and Mediterranean dishes.
What a fabulous experience, on every level! Superb food served by great, knowledgeable staff, in stunning surroundings. Wine list excellent and accessible, despite the Ontario taxes. I am only in Toronto for 3 nights and will be returning to Estia tonight (so 2 out of 3 dinners).
Great service and atmosphere! Food was delicious and our server was such a delight
Food was delicious, service was on point. We had guests arrive late and young children the kitchen was very quick and very accommodating
Great service, warm ambiance, comfortable patio, very flavorful food. Will definitely go back.
Amazing ambiance and delicious food! Planned a Greek Girl's Night Out and was impressed with service, food, Decor and ambiance.
We had one of the best meals in Toronto ! Great service and atmosphere! Large front patio! Definitely is on my top three Resturant list in Toronto right now.
Top tier food and service. I consider Estia to be one of the best restaurants that Toronto has to offer.
Very good food and beautiful outdoor setting. Our primary server was very nice, but we had too many servers try to assist, which did not help since we had to keep repeating our requests and it disrupted our conversation a lot and we felt a bit swarmed.
