    They no longer include a salad with the meal it's add-on for $4 or $5, I had to ask for taziki (which should have come with the meal. Servers were more interested in chatting with to-go diners than looking after us in the dining room. We had to ask for our wine and then had to wait for it after dinner arrived. The service has always been slow but with the menu changes and the worst service ever. It will be quite awhile before I'll be back if ever.

    This restaurant is CLOSED for a month and we were unable to dine there. We arrived to a sign on the door that said closed until mid August. Hence I do not want to give it any rating because this app will not permit me to submit this comment without touching stars. In the past the food and service has been excellent.

    We have been going to Yanni and Elizabeth's Taste of Greece with Family and Friends since they opened. There is no better local restaurant or Greek restaurant in our area. Staff is wonderful and Elizabeths recipes delicious. Can't be happier they are part of the Laguna Niguel community.

    From the standard dishes (mezze, horiatiki, dolmades, tzatziki) to the more off the beaten path (grilled sardines, oktopadi, avgolemono), everything we had was delicious. I grew up eating with our Greek family friends, lived and worked in Greece, and this little nook in a strip mall in OC is some of the best I've had in a long time. Can't wait to come back!
