Our first trip to Yanni's. Will return often. Four of us sampled a wide variety from the menu. Each dish was well received. Service was excellent and knowledgeable. Bright dining room with plenty of natural light. Enjoy, we did.

My family and I sat for about 15 minutes before anyone came up to us. Service was pretty awful which is unfortunate because the food was quite delicious.

It is a shame they changed the spanakopita, it was very special the old way. The waiter said that they got complaints, I find that hard to believe ! It was a large portion and people took home for another meal ThAt is why it was changed!
Waiter could be a little more friendly

On a previous visit we loved the calamari but it fell short this time. Not tender but chewy and not hot. Our waiter seemed flustered, maybe too busy and couldn’t handle getting us plates and serving our shared order. A Cosmo came tasting sour and he never asked if we wanted to change to a different drink so he brought another sour Cosmo. He tried to be attentive but kept disappearing. For a $ restaurant we expected more.

I have been to Yanni's several times and it is consistent - always very good. Service and food are great! They have a private room too... had my husband's birthday celebration here and we were very well taken care of. Give it a try!

Have eaten there several times and we did go early.
Our server was a little slow and it took very long to get our food even though there were only a few diners at the time we went.
Husbands steak was very well done and they cordially replaced it but that took forever as well...once that was done, and at that point he was dining alone since I had eaten mine...his new steak was delicious.
We will go back because their food is fantastically authentic Greek.
Hope to enjoy another meal with shorter serving time.

I would not recommend the place simply because food was not good at all:
Sea bass was very overcooked and salty and all vegetables were very salty too and swimming in garlic oil.

The restaurant is clean, white table cloth, attentive server, good food. The only surprise was that when I ordered a martini, it did NOT come in a martini glass !!! never have I been in any restaurant that a martini was served in a regular glass, seriously? will not be ordering a martini there anymore!

Fresh and flavorful Greek food in a lovely setting. We ended up ordering four appetizers for dinner and left with lunch for the next day! I'm a big meat-lover, yet three of the four dishes were vegetarian and absolutely wonderful. The kolokithakia, which is a thinly sliced fried zucchini dish, was light and delicious - with and without the sauce. The roasted cauliflower with couscous, tomato, raisins and pinenuts was the stuff of dreams (and even better for lunch the next day). The spanakotiropita and deconstructed gyros were both good but definitely outshone by the others. The setting was a mix of modern and cozy, with a modern fireplace warming us from a cold evening. We both look forward to returning soon.

We have went to this restaurant many times and the food is normally very good with a wide choice of food items, wine, and drinks. Service is okay, not great, and on weekends it can be loud.

Most of the people in our group of 6 enjoyed their meal. I was disappointed with my gyros plate. The meat was quite dry. We sat at a nice round table, however, it was next to a window and quite drafty. We were celebrating two birthdays and the waiter did not bother to offer us dessert for the birthday girls, they didn't even ask if we wanted a dessert menu. I probably will give it a another chance, maybe when the weather warms up.

Yanni’s is a favorite spot for us in the summer because they have a great patio. We missed our summer spot so we invited friends for dinner the other night. The service was slow. Our waiter took so long to bring us more wine- we probably would’ve had another round if he had brought them in time. 2 of us got the branzino and the waiter was supposed to debone the fish but left half of the bones in the fish. I ordered dandelions and I could not chew them they were so hard. Even the dessert was lacking. The yogurt mousse was ok but the bougatsa should’ve came with ice cream as we’ve had it there before and when I asked the waiter he looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe this was just a bad night or just a bad waiter but not sure if we will go back.

Appetizers were plentiful and very good. My entree, an expensive “barbecued” lamb, was not, IMO, barbecued by any stretch of the imagination. Instead, I’d say it was over cooked lamb with a brown gravy. Very disappointing.

We are always very happy with the food, service, and ambience of Yanni's. Everyone is friendly, helpful and kind. The free valet parking is so convenient, and its usually pretty easy to get a table in a timely manner. We usually use Open Table. We live in Glenview just minutes from Yanni's, so this was a great place to eat even in yesterday's snowstorm.
