A word from Yianni's Taverna
The sound of the waves and the blue tranquility of the sea, the smell of the mountainside and the salt in the air - the vibrancy of the people, the dance in their step. This is what comes to mind after a person visits Greece and is also what becomes part of their soul forever, as once experienced, it can never be forgotten.

This is our vision - to bring the sights, the sounds, the smells and most importantly, the tastes of Greece to the Lehigh Valley and to you with Yianni's Taverna - an Authentic Greek Restaurant at its best!

  • "I recently re-discovered this restaurant, and I'm so glad I did. My boyfriend and I had a reservation for Friday night, and we were excited all week! Yianni's certainly didn't disappoint. It's a wonderful ambiance and it's always easy to get a seat, either at the bar or in the main dining room. The vegarian moussaka is insanely delicious, and is my favorite thing on the menu."

  • "We were in town for a lacrosse tournament and found Yianni's on Opentable and Yelp and decided to give it a try with a group of 6 people, some who had not had Greek food before. The spreads were delicious, wine was very good, lamb shank was awesome, waiter and service overall was very friendly and just right. Highly recommend and will do so for my friends that live in the area."

  • "Yianna's Taverna serves up authentic Greek cuisine and never disappoints with quality of food or service. The menu is abundant with traditional Greek dishes and the wine list also includes notable Greek selections. The ambiance, both inside the dining room and on the terrace, transports you to the Greek Islands. Outstanding service and attentive staff."

  • "This was probably our 6th visit here. Our waiter Niko was very attentive (but not annoying) and Mauricio was very customer focused. We love this place and keep coming back. Next visit will definitely be the Jazz Brunch on Sunday."

  • "My eggs Zorba were great ! If I could have licked the bowl I would have. The broth was tasty , the shrimp and eggs were perfectly cooked. The side potatoes were ho hum. My husband' s lobster and crab cake were excellent, again with the ho hum potatoes. The crab cake had no filler. THe price was a little high for the small portion, but it could be that it was Father's Day."

  • "What a beautiful, wonderful surprise. The atmosphere is fantastic with the blues and whites. The food was really great. We were so pleased we went again within two weeks. This is our new favorite spot."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have been to Yianni's several times before. A convenient location to meet friends between Easton and Harleysville. Overall, very pleasant experience again. My wife and friend's wife both were disappointed with the beef short ribs special recommended by waiter--too tough. The staff was very accommodating and apologetic, offering replacement meals at no cost. I stayed with the fish, Greek specialties and wine- can not go wrong. We were late arriving for our 7:30 reservation, sat and talked at our table 'til well past 10pm. Outstanding service and attention. "

  • "Yanni's has a great menu and a lovely atmosphere. The tables are far apart and the music is at a perfect volume. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy. The food is very good and truly Greek. The portions are adequate and not overwhelming. We have never been disappointed."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Our favorite restaurant in the Lehigh Valley. Slowly but surely we are working though Yianni's menu. We will eventually have tried every single menu item. So far we are maybe a third through, because we keep reordering the same items. They either prepare exactly as it would be done at a fine Taverna in Greece or in many cases make real improvements while maintaining the "Greek" tradition of flavor & preparation. I really love the Gigantes and all the lamb dishes. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Great place for lunch or dinner. Nice bar with couches if you want to relax with cocktail before dinner. Friendly and competent to help explained the authentic Greek menu. I go there mostly for business launches. This visit was dinner for four with another couple. It was unrushed, relaxed, and the food was good. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "First time I have eaten here and it was excellent. The staff was friendly and the food was out of this world. There was a delay in getting our food after my wife got hers. My daughter and I waited 10 to 15 minutes as we were explained by the waiter that a mix up occurred.My wife was almost done. Overall I would return its a great place."

  • "The service wasn't as good as the last couple times we have been. They have since redone the inside and it was beautiful! The food was great as usual!!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We arrived to find people waiting for tables. Despite this we were promptly seated. They offered a special Mother's Day menu. It was a 4 course meal with several choices for each course. The appetizers were great and had a fresh distinct Greek flavor. The entrees were well prepared. The desserts were unusual and good. The service was good. The waiter was knowledgeable. He was very good in suggesting a Greek wine and was very friendly. The only hiccup was that the entree took much too long to bring to the table. They seemed to have mix up the order. The waiter eventually brought the meal and apologize. He apologized several times and diffused the situation. This is a great place for Greek food. You have been there several times."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my mom here for Mother's Day. They had a great price fixed menu that looked great. They were not prepared for the influx of patrons despite having taken reservations. Food took forever. Waited 1.5 hours for just a salad and an app. We had to leave mid meal because we had other commitments. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food is great. Atmosphere is lovely. You can carry on an intimate conversation without having to scream the at each other. Wait staff is friendly/helpful. Good for a date, or a pleasant family dinner. The choices are varied, but not overwhelming. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Nice Taverna atmosphere Food was above average, but red Snapper (x2 at our table) was definitely a bit dry Martinies decent We come about 1x yr and it seems Yiannis has gotten better If was closer (Downingtown) would likely come more often."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We are not familiar with different types of Greek food. We ate a few things on a cruise around Greece. What we had on that trip we liked, so we wanted to give this restaurant a try. We ordered the recommendations our waitress gave. They were all amazing. The service was prompt and friendly. And the food arrived hot and tasty. We will be back soon!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Grest meal Great service. Would go back. One of the best meals we've had. The menus is outstanding. The dishes well prepared. Kind waitstaff. Seafood selection and quality top of the line"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We have now been three times. Once for drinks and apps, which were wonderful but I realize now didn't include any hot food other than spinach pies. Once for dinner, where a whole fish was very good but chicken overdone, prices very high. Once for lunch, where a burger was raw and other meats fatty and grisly, requiring a complaint to management. Staff is sweet but seems to be family vs professional servers. The refurbishment of the building is lovely but isn't enough to overcome mediocre food. I'm afraid we won't be back."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We tried Yianni's a year ago on an annual trip to Bethlehem; liked it so much we went back the next night. This year we reserved in advance for two nights. Appetizers were varied and generous in size. Delicious lamb entrees (our usual pick), a variety of fresh seafood, and other Greek specialties. Wait-staff young, but knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Large attractive dining room in (of course!) blue and white. This is not a cheap Greek diner, but a quality restaurant well worth the price."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I have been to Yianni's quite a few times now and it the taste never gets old! I love their ambiance. The Greek food is very authentic and tasty. I would love to see more vegetarian options in the main menu though! "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Yianni's is a fantastic place, with beautiful decor, wonderful food, and a very accommodating staff. One of our group is on a no-carb diet, and our server suggested an item that isn't even on the menu (veggie kabob) that perfectly filled that need. We also requested, and were kindly given, a table near the window, as I'm extremely photo sensitive, and need bright light. I will DEFINITELY be back, even though it's several hours from my home! "

  • "We arrived on time for our reservation for 6. They asked us to wait while they set up a table which didn't take too long. We were there on Easter Sunday when they had a prix fixe menu. When I made the reservation I noted that the regular menu was also available. I was upset that they didn't offer us regular menus only the prix fixe one because my daughter is a vegetarian and wouldn't order any of the specials. They did give regular menus once we asked for them. Food was good, but service was a little chaotic because the restaurant was packed. I have been there many other times when the service was more attentive. I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I normally don't like going out on a holiday - mass-produced food, rushed service, etc. - but Yianni's was every bit as excellent on Easter as it is every other day of the year. Thanks for being so darned dependable! "

  • "Food was fantastic as always... love it here and will continue to go back. Great drinks and the fish selection is amazing."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We realized last time that we do not frequent Yianni's often enough. It is a family run Greek style restaurant with great appetizers and wonderful fish dishes. The wine list has exciting Mediterranean selections. We have been to so many new noisy, screaming restaurants, the noise level is what we encountered in Europe, where you can talk in civil tones to the person across the table from you. Hurray! The prices are above average, and so is the food. "

  • "My boyfriend and I came for dinner. We split the sagananki & tuna tartar. Both were absolutely delicious!! We both ended up getting the lamb gyro platter. It was great- I especially liked the tzatziki. The platters were large & I brought some home for lunch the next day. We also had some greek coffee which was yummy. Overall an absolutely scrumptious dinner. We will definitely be back! "
