Food was fine, but service was horrendous. I don't generally complain but-Forgot a wine glass but delivered the carafe of wine. Brought the hot appetizer, but never the 2 salads(asked to come at same time). Brought bread, never the spread. Salads showed up about 2 seconds before main dishes arrived, so we declined them. No side vegetables left (Sat nite at 8 pm), so substituted roasted potatoes. They were cold and shriveled. Asked for fresh and they were immediately delivered, and were piping hot and delicious. Manager sent complimentary dessert plate, and had already sent an appetizer to us at the onset cause we waited 30 min for our 7:30 reservation. Also, packed up the original salad to go (didn't ask for this), cause he felt bad. Might go back, not on a Saturday, cause food was very good.

An interesting take on Greek food - not how your mom used to make it. More upscale with different flavors than "normal" Greek food. Portions are huge. BBQ a special treat. Our waitress was new, but earnest. The restaurant is exceedingly loud - yet they persist in playing a tape of Greek music. Not for the hard of hearing. Although the food makes up for it! The sound level is not energetic - it is excruciating!

Very fresh and quality Greek Dining. We loved the grilled calamari and the cucumber, tomato salad., lamb chops and steak. The waiter was helpful and our dinner came quickly, which was great since we had our kids with us.
We will go back!

First time here and we will be back again. It was my wifes birthday and we wanted to have an authentic Greek meal. We ordered a few of the appetizers and were surprised by the large portions. the lamb was tasty and moist and everything else was very good. Our waiter Evan was courteous and helpful and treated us with respect. after the meal we had large portions of leftovers and finished the meal with a bit of uzo. We recommend Yanls to all.

We have dined at Yanni's several times since it opened and have never been disappointed. The food is absolutely delicious and they have a wide variety of options and great specials. We have received good recommendations on wine selection from our servers and the owner. The decorating is tasteful and relaxing. This is becomming one of our go-to dinner places.

We went there because our friend wanted Greek food for her birthday.
It has nice ambience, convenient location. and we heard it was good. The
restaurant was fine but nothing special. The birthday dessert was very disappointing.
It was basically yogurt and whip cream.....YUK My shrimp skewer was OK, a little bland,
but the mixed vegetables were good. I would go back if my friends wanted and possibly
try something else.

This was a 2nd visit for my husband and I. We had enjoyed our 1st visit so much that we raved to our friends about it and invited 2 couples to join us. It was crazy in there. Really noisy and our service was really slow because our server was overloaded with a large party in the private room. So while I won't go back on a Saturday at 7:00, I will go back.

We love Yianni's! Real Greek food - not Americanized. Healthy, organic food made with creativity and great taste. Our usual waiter, Bill is friendly and knowledgable about what to order. He remembers what we like and is always eager to get us whatever is best. Yianni's is our go-to for family gatherings or just when we get a yen for Greek food.

We've been seeking a new good Greek restaurant and we found it at Yanni's! This place is amazing. The food was outstanding! I would recommend their seafood, bbq lamb and traditional Greek dishes for sure. The desserts were also amazing.

I have been there several times and have rated it as xcellent. This time it slipped a little. I normally have a fish dish but this time went with a kabob. Which was good but a little dry. Also the previous servers were very good on the wine list, this time not so much. So I still highly recommend it but not as wildly enthusiastic as previous outings.

We love Yanni's! We're so lucky to have this gem of a restaurant in our neighborhood. The restaurant is beautiful, service is excellent and attentive, and the staff are all very warm and friendly from the valet, to the manager, hostess, server and bus help. The food is amazing - always freshly prepared, the right amount of seasoning, good portions, and a menu and a special's list with many options. Our favorite dishes include the grilled octopus appetizer, the braised lamb in tomatoes, their grilled fish - either sea bass and branzino with olive oil and lemon, and the grilled lamb chops with rosemary and oregano with a lamb reduction sauce. And the complimentary warm baked bread with an olive/olive oil spread served in the beginning is absolutely delicious. We've never had a disappointing dish or experience at Yanni's. We no longer have to travel into the city for truly great Greek food and we always look forward to our next visit!

Second time in a week I've been to Yanni's.
Had lunch of Sunday and dinner on Sunday. Sat on patio both times. Service was perfect. Very friendly young waitstaff. On Sunday we were the only ones on the patio since it was early and a little cool. Waiter couldn't have been more attentive. Food was delicious with generous proportions!!! Great dining experience.

This restaurant is very noisy so it was hard to talk to our friends. We had to shout at each other. The food was OK, nothing special. When we asked for a side salad, the waiter said they don't have them, but do have larger salads that we could share with another person. The waiter was also OK. He said that was his first time there. The free valet service was also OK. The guy who took my car was very good and helpful, the guy who delivered the car back to us was less than adequate. He didn't even offer to close my door. We had interrupted his conversation with another car hop. So our visit to Yanni's was OK but not great.
