Great food, second to none wine selection, and great service.... what more could be said in a few short words. I will go back again, and again.

Great place to have a quiet dinner or a small group of friends. Very welcoming staff and the Fish board is a 'must try' on the menu. We will be back soon.

My salmon was cooked perfectly and was delicious but my friend’s soup was not hot. Possibly the soup was hot but the bowl was cold

Went here for my fiancé birthday. We loved the atmosphere. We were a little disappointed with the Caesar salad. It contained actual anchovies(fish) which threw us off. The description didn’t mention there would be fish so we were slightly taken a back. Other than that everything else was great! Definitely going back again.

Took 30 min just to put our order in. After about an hour we asked how long it would take. The waitress said “oh it’ll be out soon.” I responded with, “ well can you check please because it’s been about an hour and we haven’t even received our salads.” That apparently upset her bc she avoided our table since that point on. Very unprofessional. Once we received our entree my husband couldn’t even eat it. We took it to go and ended up throwing it out at home. The steak was charred and the veggies tasted like burnt plastic. Very disappointing

Four of us had dinner that evening and we hadn't seen each other in nearly 6 months. Every plate that arrived was presented well and the taste was amazing. Best lamb chops I've ever eaten. None of us had anything negative to say. Well done!

This was our first time here and I was not disappointed! The ambiance is amazing— I am definitely coming back here with my husband for a romantic night out, and I will definitely be back with a few of my girl friends for a girls night out! Yianni (the owner) was so spectacular and he made it a point to ensure every guest, at every table was satisfied and well taken care of. He was so excited warm, upbeat, and welcoming.

Side note: the bread and butter they serve as a little appetizer is free (!) fresh, limitless, and delicious! Yianni gave us a loaf to take home.

Oh, also, they have Sommelier’s there at your request! I’m not sure if this is how it is in the daytime, but for dinner I’m assuming this is a norm! He made some amazing recommendations. I’m excited to go back for sure. Yianni, you gained 4 devoted patrons for life! Thank you for your passion towards food, wine, and the experience (even with COVID!)

We went to Yianni's to celebrate my husband's birthday. The entire experience was great! The owner Yianni, was very personable and sat down with us to give us the restaurant's history and came back a few times to check on it. I had scallops, while my husband had a 30 day aged steak, which was fantastic. The drinks were delicious well!

Overall, a perfect evening out!

Burger and Beer night at a wine shop.. I LOVE IT
Mouth watering burger of high quality beef!
Fresh Toppings, Cooked to order
Truffle Fries were mmmm good
and the home made pickles were zippy delicious.

Our waitress picked a syrah for my wife that was so amazing we had to buy a bottle to take home!

Definitely worth the drive from Portsmouth... and the Tunnel Toll!!!

First time visiting them. Great menu and great pricing IF you purchase a bottle. They only charge the retail cost of the bottle with no corkage fee. My wife had a great bottle for around 18 dollars. However, I went by the glass and my bill for three glasses was over 50 dollars...so, ask about the cost by the glass vice the bottle. This aside, the food was terrific and the setting is a great place for a date night, etc. Knowledgable staff and everything was really tasty. I highly recommend the smoked fish platter.

My husband and I had so much fun tasting all the wines on the Enomatic machines. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Not only can you choose from a myriad of wine but a full bar as well, I had a Tequilla Runner (a take on a Rum Runner) that was awesome. The food was cooked to perfection and I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to dine out!
