    Had a booking for 7:15pm, was told there were no tables, and was asked to sit at the front of the restaurant “order some drinks” and wait until our table became available. We sat there for in excess of 40 minutes and waited for our table to “become available.” I had to add a person to our booking earlier in the day and had called in advance to let them know one extra person was coming. After we had been seated, I was then approached by, who I can only assume was the man in charge for the night, telling us that as there were 8 of us, we had to order from the banquet menu. When I explained this had not been communicated to me, he said “ok. Well, I’ll let you order this time… but next time it needs to be a banquet.” This was not communicated to me when adding a person to our booking. They “lost” our drinks order, kept forgetting items we had ordered and seemed incredibly disorganised throughout the entire night. The food was delicious, which is a shame because the service left a lot to be desired. I found most of the staff rude and condescending and there was little to no apology for their disorganisation throughout the night. A really horrible way to spend a birthday dinner, to be honest. There were plenty of places we could have visited, Melbourne CBD and Southbank are spoilt for choice. I opted for Yassas as previously their service and food have been fantastic. After that experience, I don’t think I’ll be returning and neither will the others I was with.

    We had been to Yassas previously and had a good experience so decided to go again with some interstate visitors. The food was still good but the service was terrible. One entree was forgotten and when we asked about it, the wait staff person never returned. Likewise when a couple of people ordered a third round of drinks they never arrived. Plenty of good Greek places in Melbourne so we won't be going back to this one.

    We had a good meal last time, but this time the moussaka was tasteless, and the meat skewers dish was very pricey for what arrived. Lemon potatoes side were great. Rice pudding was so so and just had a strawberry not macerated dried fruit promised on the menu. Good staff, if very young and unsure of some things. Got quite noisy after a quiet beginning. All up - too pricey for the taste and quality.

    It was cold in this restaurant and the service and food was very average. Don’t have the mixed grill…very dry and does not make sense…a medium amount of dried out over cooked meat (even for Greek) heaps of bread and a very tiny bowl of T Dip…

    As always, the food was excellent. There was a minor mixup with the food order when it arrived but that was very quickly sorted out. On a cold winters night, it was a little bit cool indoors with the big doors open to the balcony, but overall it was a good evening

    Pleasant venue for a pre-theatre dinner. Food was very good. Venue was full. Staff had to be sought out to order meal & dessert. It was too loud (live music) it was hard to hear each other talk.

    Whilst a waiter accidentally spilt a glass of red wine on me and other drinks on the table, and my friends the response by the manager Shane was wonderful. He did everything he could to make sure our night wasn't ruined. The food was amazing and the staff lovely and helpful. Definitely will be back.

    2nd visit to YASSAS. The 1st was excellent. 2nd not so good, as a number of the meat dishes were very overcooked and extremely dry. One I was unable to swallow. Will give it one more try sometime in the future, before deciding if it's a go-to for us or something to chalk up to experience.

    My first impression was YAY! The restaurant was very busy, which is always a good sign, this also made it fairly noisy (but it didn't really matter). There was a great deal of food & drink choices and what we ate & drank was awesome. Prices were ok, but that always depends on your own personal income & budget. I will definitely be going back to try the bottomless brunch!

    The food was fantastic. Maybe a tad pricey but definitely worth it. The atmosphere was nice and you have a wonderful view of Flinders Street Station from the window. My only gripe was the service wasn't great. The waitress was lovely but there simply wasn't enough staff. We waited 30 minutes for someone to collect our plates after we were finished. Overall I really enjoyed this place and would definitely recommend it.
