A word from Yanni's
Yanni's is proud to serve authentic, homemade Greek cuisine originating from the Peloponnese region of Greece in a casual, family friendly atmosphere. The house specialty is Colorado grown Lamb. We spit-roast legs of lamb over charcoal every Sunday afternoon for dinner, and our lamb chops are world class. You will also find a variety of seafood, including Mediterranean Sea Bass, Mediterranean Cod, Red Snapper (in season), Kalamari, Octopus, and Shrimp dishes. For those who appreciate a fine glass of wine, you will find a wonderful selection of Greek wines, and several domestic and international wines as well.

    I loved this place from the git-go! The service was near perfect and the food was so much more than I expected. Their dolmades may be the best I've ever had! So tender and full...I've dreamed of them since the first taste! I will defintely go back and bring more friends.

    I celebrated my birthday at Yanni's this year with 7 of my women friends. The restaurant gave us a table in a small dining room that was a little more private and quiet and our servers Yanni and Mike were so helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and my friends all enjoyed what they ordered. The added touch of the owner Yanni walking around offering everyone ouzo is always hilarious. They took into consideration that it was my birthday and really worked hard to make it special.

    This was our second time here, and we were just as pleased as we were the first time. Two of us had chicken souvlaki and another had lamb souvlaki. We all enjoy the entrees along with the sides of rice and vegetables (green beans with onions and seasonings). And another had the macaronada. I've never seen such a huge helping of pasta - way too much for one person. The first time we came, we also had an appetizer, but we didn't this time because it is too much food. But I could make a meal just on their appetizers. And of course there was complimentary shots of Ouzo. We sat outside which originally we weren't planning to do because of the highway noise. But it was OK because our talking overrode it.

    I came here to specifically try the saganaki, which was disappointing. They brought the cheese out without the fire. This was my first time eating this so am not sure how it was suppose to taste, but it was soggy and not very tasty. The service was good though, the waiter comes appropriately to ask if we need anything or if food is good. Me and my friends tried the sampler, which was also disappointing. But maybe this is what authentic Greek food is.

    I've been to Yanni's a few other times, and it was great! However, this is the first time I've been there and haven't been impressed with the food. It seemed really salty...or maybe really lemony. I couldn't figure it out, but the food just didn't taste as good as it normally does. I'll go back, but I need an outstanding meal to be convinced of Yanni's great reputation.

    We've tried a couple other Greek restaurants in the metro area, but we haven't gone back. We'll definitely go back to Yanni's. The food was very good and the portions were generous. My husband had the Lamb Souvlaki; he said the lamb was tender and moist. And it's Colorado lamb which it is nice to support the area. I had the Gyros; they let me substitute a Greek salad instead of fries. It was also very good, but the meat was served on top of the pita which made the pita rather soggy. We've gone to this shopping area a couple times for other restaurants and never realized that there is underground parking. So if you don't find a spot at ground-level, the entry to the garage is just a little north of Yanni's on the east.

    This was our first time at Yanni's, but certainly not our last time. If you like Greek food, this is the place. We were met and greeted by the owner, Yanni, who make us feel very welcome. He came by several times to insure that everything was to our liking. We both had the lamb shanks that were enormous and had left-overs for the next day. Their house soup is to die for and the deserts were great. Very nice service from a young man who was only 20, but quite helpful in menu selections.

    My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner with another couple last Saturday evening on our first visit to Yanni's . We had heard great things about the food and were not disappointed . Greeted by a friendly gentlemen upon arrival (who we later learned was Yanni) and shown to our table, we received excellent service the entire evening. (Especially from Michelle.) Moved to the patio for dessert and coffee to close out a very enjoyable evening. If you like good food and a fun atmosphere, do not miss it!

    Yanni's is the best Greek food in the Denver area! The service is phenomenal and the owner Yanni is there to make sure guests are happy and to give great suggestions. What is great is the menu is set up so you can do family style sharing or have separate plates. The gyro meat, spanakopita, and dolmades are some of our favorites. We love this place!

    This was our first experience at Yanni's. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Inga was our waitress and she was friendly and helpful in suggesting a Greek wine for our enjoyment. The menu offers a very nice selection to fit everyone's tastes. Our food was served hot and in a reasonable time frame. And it was delicious! The restaurant is smaller in size and the main dining area is set up to take advantage of the most patrons. It would serve well for small groups of 6-8 but romantic it is not. Because of the smaller size, the noise level is moderate. The owner visited our table during our meal to say hello and provided us with a complimentary shot of Ouzo. OPA! We will visit again.

    From our warm greeting, to the attentive and enthusiastic server, we wanted for nothing. Our food started out great with a basket of warm bread. The spanakopita appetizer was great. I had Pastitsio, which was wonderful. My husband had the Lamb Souvlaki. He seemed very pleased. I had enough leftovers to make a wonderful lunch the next day! We had baklava for dessert. I am used to it being layered between the phyllo sheets, and this was more topped with phyllo. All in all, dinner was delightful. Our waiter was a very helpful young man who seemed to know the menu very well, and when unsure of the wine, quickly brought a taste to help my husband make his decision. We will definitely go back!

The awesome thing is that the service and food are still consistantly great. Yanni's is a must for anyone who likes Greek food.

    The food was fantastic. We had nine people in our party and everyone left very satisfied. I had the lamb shank where the lamb just fell off the bone. The salads were great, especially the full meal salads. We ordered plenty of appetizers. The cheese was very fresh, the spanikopita was delicious but the calamari was fried in a little too much batter, although the grilled calamari appetizer was very good. Moreover, the service was fantastic.

    We were staying in the tech center so we decided to try Yanni's. We had dined many years ago at the old location. Nice to have a really greek menu with a hugh variety of traditional items on the menu. Everything was tasty and service was fine. It was late on a Sunday so it was pretty calm in the restaurant. The ouzo is always a nice touch. A place to come for a greek meal.

    From the start, service seemed a bit inattentive. No host stand and it took several minutes for anyone to acknowledge our presence. Our server was okay, but did make a few mistakes with our order - other guest ordered Malbec and received Port? Food sequence was a little off also. Breadsticks cold and served with Land O' Lake's butter pats right out of fridge. Food was adequate, but gyro presentation a little odd. Entrée items placed over pita and this made it difficult for guests to eat. My souvlaki was fairly good. If we did not have a $100 gift certificate, I would have been more upset over our experience. We probably will not return.
