We had a very nice experience at Yanni's! Food was excellent and very traditional Greek. A great find, Yanni's saves us the hassle of driving to Greektown. Will definitely recommend to my Greek family!

Yianni's is a hidden gem of authentic Greek cuisine. Dined here three times in recent weeks and each time was a great all round experience. You will see many Greek staples but the chef gives many of them a unique twist - this is not your typical "Greektown place". Grilled octopus and calamari were fresh and tender. Taramosalata was smoother and creamier than you might expect but with perfectly balanced flavors. The star of the show was the BBQ lamb. Believe me, this one's "the bomb" - and don't be fooled by the name. There's no smoking involved here, just slow roasted lightly flavored lamb that simply melts in your mouth. As A Greek who's had more than his share of lamb over the years I can confidently say this is one that I'd travel far and wide for. Deserts are fairly close to home - all good, but with one superstar: the bougatsa (which strangely was missing from the menu last time around - looking forward to its return). Exceptional food, attentive service, and very reasonably priced. Yanni's deserves to be "discovered" by everyone.

Food mediocre. Appetizers were overwhelmed by garlic. Grilled salmon special was good. Way too much mustard on lamb chops. Out of rice pudding. We won’t rush back.

It was New Years Eve, but that's no excuse for rushed, impersonal service. Mixed drink was bad, and when waiter was told, he ignored it. Waiter gave no explanation of menu items, although other waiters can be heard explaining to nearby diners. Main course was served while appetizer was still being eaten. Could barely get waiters attention for an iced tea. No personality whatsoever. Although food was good, there's plenty of other Greek restaurants to get same or better quality with better service.
We will not return.
