It was good. Some dishes were of course better than others, but given the price, it should have been better. A good restaurant, but poor value.

I don’t hand out perfect scores as a rule on OpenTable but in the case of Estia I made an exception. This meal was spectacular and the service and ambience was a wonderful compliment to the food.

Food was good but certainly not exceptional. Suggested we place our app and entree orders at the same time and it appeared that the food came out quickly one after the other. Although we certainly didn't feel rushed after meal, the food sure was coming out gat cutting down the conversation time. Nice place but perhaps slightly over rated.

Excellent experience all around. The food was delicious! Spicy lamb kebab was Devine, branzino with sides of spinach, Yukon fries and Turkish chop salad were all impeccably prepared. One of our best dining experiences. Ambiance is chic and elegant. Service was perfectly attentive and friendly.

Estia is a great restaurant in the Yorkville area. The service is great and the food was good. We had a Prix Fixe menu for Valentine's. The inside of the restaurant was very nice, the grand ceiling and decor contributed to the ambiance. Great for a date night or a nice evening out.

Very classy and elegant restaurant. Unique dishes with very different tastes. Our waiter ensured my dairy allergy would not be a problem and that all meals could be made custom-to-order. However, me and my partner went on Valentine's Day when there was a prefixed menu. I did not like how we were forced to decide on everything we wanted from the moment we got there. I felt like I was kind of being pushed out quickly so that the next couple could be seated. Overall, the service was great and the food was good but not worth the $300 value we paid. Would recommend if you want to try something unique.

We enjoyed a splendid evening at Estia. The hospitality , service , food, presentation is consistently outstanding. The table they offered us was perfect for our purpose and as per our request when we made our reservation. While it is costly , restaurants offering this quality in this neighbourhood need ask a substantial price. It is certainly honest value for great quality in the area.

Went here for adult family birthday celebration. We had a fabulous roomy booth. The restaurant is beautiful, but it was very quiet, which created a little lack lustre ambiance. The food was good. Very heavy and a little too much. The service and wine selection was excellent. The signature Estia Spritz was delicious! I enjoyed my experience at Estia.

Loved the whole experience. Food was beyond good. Restaurant is stylish yet comfortable and service was stellar. Was a little disappointed in the portion size of two of the delicious appetizers we ordered. Sharing menu suggests that waitstaff let you know when you are not ordering enough. Advice would have been welcome. Nevertheless, we loved our evening.

This was our second visit to Estia. While we enjoyed a couple of dishes (salad and moussaka), we were disappointed with the other starters and mains. The portion sizes for the starters, especially the octopus, are too small for the price. The adana kebab, only one, was completely over priced too. I understand that we are paying for Estia’s prime real estate location on Avenue Road, but it’s ridiculous. The food is tasty, but there is little value. We likely won’t return.
