fabulous service!Yianni's was great! The food was wonderful... Everything was hot, not Luke warm like I get in so many other restaurants. The staff were fabulous... great service all around. I will be going back again for sure.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduationThis was a return visit for us because we had such a great experience the first time. We took the entire family to celebrate our daughters graduation from college. Food and service were great, they made us feel right at home. We will be going back again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet modern Greek treasureThe dining room is a lovely white and clean escape off of Route 378. It's nice and quiet during brunch so it's good for a business meeting but lively at night (often with live music) so it's a great date night as well. The food is authentic Greek but presented in a modern way so it doesn't look overtly ethnic. I go here often and recommend the aged barrel gets appetizer. I never really liked feta but now that I've had the real thing I love it!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal favoriteYiannis is a family owned, Greek themed, bright and pleasant place for reliable food. Service is friendly, menu includes traditional American fare as well as Greek specialties. Just south of Bethlehem and one block off main highway ( Rte 378).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Mother's DayThe food was excellent and the ambience was really nice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food, unpretentiousOn our way home to the Philadelphia area from Bethlehem's annual Bach Festival, we stopped for dinner at Yianni's for the second year in a row. The hosts were friendly, and our young waiter was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the Kalamari appetizer (tender, not bar food). The salmon on a bed of spinach was very good; the veal stuffed with crab and shrimp. truly outstanding. A mixup about which rice I wanted with the veal (with vegetables mixed in, rather than plain) was promptly and cheerfully corrected, at no charge. Beet salad on the side was also delicious. Two terrific dinners with 3 glasses of Greek wine between the two of us, and no desserts, came to under $90. The atmosphere is relaxed, bright, not trying too hard.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for authenticGreat place for authentic Greek food! We enjoyed the specials of the evening: veal and chicken & shrimp.
Ended our meal with baklava - yummy!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Greek Food I've had in Years!Bethlehem, PA, is not a place one would expect to find exceptional Greek cuisine. My wife and I, visiting this charming and lively town for a music festival, finally got to Yianni's, having heard positive comments from friends. It turned out to be the best Greek food we have had since we lived in Chicago (thirty years ago)! I opted for the roasted lamb shank with orzo; my wife had a veal special. Our waiter, Brian, was a gem -- he knew the restaurant's menu well, and was there when needed (and absent when not). We were so pleased that we immediately made a reservation for the next night -- again with Brian -- and enjoyed an equally superb meal (tilapia with spinach and feta for me, scallops for my wife). A real treat!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMhummus is not Greek!Forgetting which culture the restaurant's cuisine was, we had to substitute tzatziki for our young granddaughter's favorite - hummus.
The server was very attentive, and with three children under five at the table, he managed ot keep everyone happy!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreek food with a unique varietyThis is our fourth visit to Yianni's and we have never been disappointed. We were celebrating a birthday so ordered everything from multiple appetizers to dessert. Everything was delicious and the uniqueness of menu items makes it interesting. The Baklava was outstanding! My husband who is from Armenian decent (where this is a common dessert) said that this is the best he has had since his elder "aunties" would make it for the family. Service and ambiance was just right as well.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNight outOne of the best dining experiences ever! Excellent service from the greeter when we walked in, to the waitress, all the staff who help each other to the amazing food! Highly recommend and will definitely go back again!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Justin was veryOur waiter Justin was very informative and knowledgable. Helped us pick out a really good Greek white wine. Octopus was grilled perfect. Whole fish was moist and delicious. Overall very good place. Will be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in town for the LehighWe were in town for the Lehigh Valley 1/2 marathon and Yianni's was perfect. It was great to see such a well done space as well as such wonderful food. Both my partner and I are vegetarian and the server pointed out several additional items that we could order -- which we did -- and they were all amazing. Very nice space and great food.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI really liked the food andI really liked the food and I would 100% come back for it. One thing that bothered me was that everyone that worked there seemed like they were trying to sell the restaurant to me. Like i was asked numerous times if i was coming back to Yianni's Taverna and when I do, I should bring more people. That turned me off a little bit....but not enough. I'll still be back :)4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!Have seen Yianni's Taverna a couple of times since moving to the area. We had a birthday in the family and needed to find a restaurant to celebrate with family. Yianni's was just the place. The food was excellent, the ambiance was just right and the service great. We all left feeling that this was a good choice. We will not only be going back again, but will certainly tell friends about it!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere and vibrancyThe atmosphere and vibrancy of Yianni's was wonderful. My only regret was that the place was filled to capacity when we arrived, and we weren't seated quickly or served in the most timely manner. Having said that, the food was spectacularly prepared and arrived hot and delicious! Overall, we had a lovely dining experience and will return again soon (but perhaps not on a Saturday night)!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AM2 thumbs upI am very happy with my first experience with Yianni's4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of 9We arrived with a party of 9, 2 of which were kids. I was hesitate to stay but the restaurant is very energetic! The kids were drowned out by the noise. It is not overly loud just vibrant dining! The food was excellent, everyone was happy. The kids meal were amazing also, fresh fruit and salad choices!
The server was great with everyone, amazingly attentive! My only issues was we ordered 4 appetizers and they came out staggered? Each one arrived 3-5 minutes apart! 1 app for a party of 9 doesn't make it around the table!! The manager stopped by also... Very lovely man!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal.

The food was excellent, and the seafood was fresh and delicious. We had a Greek Chardonnay, which we enjoyed; however, we would like to see some more moderately priced wine selections in addition to the current wine list. All in all, Yianni's was an very enjoyable dinner and evening out with the family. We will definitely return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience! The staffGreat experience! The staff is friendly, warm and helpful. 5 Stars all the way around!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup outingEnjoyable evening with 8 people. Service friendly and efficient. Food was very good with fish our primary order. Special cold plate was solid, whole fish grilled tasty, salmon special very good, oysters really good, and sea bass excellent. Calamari was weak, too much batter and not enough flavor, frozen? Wine list ok, but it took several choices until we came upon one actually in stock. Overall a nice evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little place . . . .Yianni's is a Great little place with good food and a nice atmosphere...

Very pleasantly surprised!!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Greek Food and AtmosphereMy first experience at Yianni's was about a year ago, I took a Greek friend there, he loved it, and have been going back every since. Justin was our waiter and he was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere and decor transports you to a Greek island as does the food. I think by now I have had at least everything on the menu many times over. The crab cakes and grilled octopus are my favorites, and the deserts are out of this world! Wonderful drink and wine menu as well. Overall a great experience each time I dine at Yianni's. Highly recommended.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
