    We had dinner on the outside patio. It was a sunny day and we had to move our table around to stay in the shade (no awnings). The service was great! Mythos beer was served very cold with iced mug. The portions are large. Grilled octopus was good. Cheese and spinach pie was very good. Brick chicken was good. All entrees come with cup of lemon chicken soup and choice of two excellent sides. We will definitely return and try some other entrees.

    Our first time at this restaurant, and we’ll be back. Seated as soon as we arrived. Outstanding service, very clean, portions were generous and the food was delicious. We ordered dolmades, grilled octopus and smelt for appetizers. The octopus was over-the-top great and a for-sure order in the future. Ordered lamb chops (fantastic) spanakopita (very good) and lamb shank (tender and good.) All entrees come with a cup of soup and choice of two sides. The restaurant atmosphere was nice and better in person than the on-line photos with lots of natural light.

    We all had delicious dinners The dolmades were awesome and the lamb chops were well seasoned and cooked perfectly Tony, our server, busted his hump keeping things moving on a night that the busy restaurant was understaffed. It was our third visit there and we highly recommend it for delicious Greek cuisine

    We arrived on time for our reservation. However there was a long line at the Host station. I heard the owner or health manager say that there were only four servers for the entire restaurant which was packed. Clearly they had over reserved the restaurant. We waited about 15 minutes for our table. He literally put us at two four tops right at the door so all of the waiting people were on top of us as were the people at the bar. We didn’t have enough water glasses we had to ask multiple times for those. I had to ask for a set up four different times and in a plate for appetizers. Our server was the bartender. He was rude he was in a hurry and couldn’t be bothered with us. I have food allergies and really was concerned that he was not listening. The food was good but didn’t make up for poor service. Also once ordered carry out and charged us but omitted half of the order. Won’t go back

    I really wanted to like it, I'd heard a lot of good things but the food was just ok and the service was poor. I get that it's hard to find staffing today, but one waitress for the entire restaurant is ridiculous - if you can't service that many tables you shouldn't seat them. Took 30 minutes to get our drink order and even then I received the world's smallest old fashioned..

    Fun little place. Servers were attentive. Food was very good. Menu was small but what they have, they do very well. Desserts are awesome. My spanikopita was a little burnt. 95% of the guests were adults on dates or out with friends. Recommend!

    Food would’ve been good if it had been served hot. Wait staff was very scattered and inattentive. Took forever to take our orders and then never checked back to see if it was okay. Luckily we weren’t in a rush. Taste of food was good but preferred moussaka when it was cooked in individual crocks. Took a long time to get our checks correct as we were splitting bill.

    First time here, overall very impressed with the place, modern but cozy, with the traditional superior Greek hospitality. Prices were slightly above average on the appetizers, but mains were on point. Very good quality food, just one complaint was that when getting the spreads, they come a-la-cart, with no pita bread. You get a bread for the table but when ordering a dip/spread, it should come with its own... conveyance... Overall, very good experience, we will be back.

    Everything was delicious. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and stopped at everyone’s table. Server was amazing. We had the grilled octopus, and village salad to start. Both soups were delicious. My fiancé had the Giouvetsi Ala Forno and I had the Moussaka. The Araka (sweet peas) were delicious as well. Our only (small) complaint was The appetizer portions seemed a little too small. Normally with a village salad it is bursting out of the bowl and meant to be shared with many people! Oh and the bread was Amazing. We’ll definitely be back. We have a few Greek restaurants we like to frequent and this one will be added to the list!

    Yianni's OPA is one of our favorite go to spots that we enjoy sharing with others. Last evening we had two friends from Chicago, who had not been there before, join us for dinner. The food and service was excellent as always and we enjoyed relaxing get together.
