We went to Yanni's for a birthday dinner and it was great. There weren't many people there at all, expected for a Thursday evening (with a Broncos game that night, so pretty much everywhere had less people), but that just made it nicer. The outdoor seating has low lighting for the evening and the food was amazing. I personally recommend the Spanikopita. I can't wait for the chance to go again.

Always a special treat eating and visiting with family and friends at Yannis. Yanni and Amy make it personal with their warm attention to making everyone feel special with each visit. Food is delicious and always presented beautifully. I will ALAWAYS choose Yannis for special occassions or dates for lunch w girlfriends or dates for dinner w my hubby and daughter. Two thumbs up!

We went for my birthday, never had been there before, but I love Greek food and it was fabulous. My dinner companion had never had Greek food before and I have now converted him too! The owner greeted us with a hug, and spent the evening going from one table to the next talking with each guest and handing out " shots" of Ouzo! Great evening! Can't wait to go back! I had mousaka and it was fabulous!

It was our first time to Yanni's. We had an all-day event close by and thought we would try a place we hadn't tried before, as we love Greek food. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and Yanni himself came by with ouzo soon after our arrival, which we thought was a warm and friendly gesture. Our waitress was slow and hard to find most of the evening, although she was quite nice and friendly. The wine selection was pretty good, but marked way up. I was annoyed by the fact that when our bottle of wine was opened, it was opened by the bartender behind the bar and we weren't given the cork. I'm old school, but when you order a bottle, you should get to sniff the cork, keep the cork, etc. I asked for it and she did fetch it. The food was good. The moussaka and pastitsio were both very good with a great bechamel layer on top. The gyros were pretty good and the salad was excellent. I wish they had the avgolemeno soup, but they did not. The saganaki wasn't the best and it took forever to get it. The dolmades were pretty decent. The tzatziki sauce was delicious and plentiful. We would go again, because it's the closest Greek restaurant to our home that is decent. There are others, but Yanni's is better. However, our favorite is in Denver.

We've been here a number of times and every time it is a very enjoyable meal. Okay, the Spanakopita was a little off (the filo was not flaky and a bit chewy), but beyond that, it was all good. I will always recommend the lamb, because they do the lamb chops very well. And the owner walking around greeting his guests with Ouzo is wonderful touch.

Very traditional Greek restaurant! Just went to Greece and have been looking for a place to stand up to the real deal. Owner came around with ouzo shots. I do wish the Greek salad was a tradition Greek without lettuce. Was a tad pricey and wish they had a little more of a wine by the glass selection.

I was looking for some "authentic" Greek food since my visit to Greece last summer where the food was wonderful. Since we went for lunch, I order the Moussaka with Greek vegetables. Very disappointed. The Moussaka was floating in grease from the fatty ground beef I presume. It left my entire plate greasy. The bechamel sauce on top was thick and consolidated and more the consistency of dough with little flavor. The skin on the eggplant was tough making it hard to cut even with a knife. The Greek vegetables were hard to distinguish, I guessed they were green beans with onions, etc. They were overcooked and mushy. I heard good reviews about this place so perhaps I ordered the wrong dish, however, my dining companion had some kind of sampler plate with chicken, rice, and salad and it looked like nothing special and the chicken was dry. Definitely won't go back; there must be better Greek food to be found in Denver!

Yanni's has been a part of the Denver metro community for sometime! Yanni, himself, is always present! With that in mind, I think he truly cares about his business and his customers, which only translates to incredible food. In many restaurants, you don't see or feel the presence of their owners in the restaurant. Yanni does care, and that is why you can't go wrong having a meal at Yanni's!!

I have read all the reviews and was stunned at the quality of the gyros. They are pre-packaged strips meat. 5 very thing slices on awful pita bread with a sprinkling of diced tomatoes and very thinly sliced onions. For 12.95. This is supposed to authentic? I grew up eating Greek food. Where the gyro meat is cut off the roast on a spit turning on a rotisserie. I sent it back. And the smart aleck Yanni said that in 25 years no one has every complained about the gyros. I find that hard to believe. Wake up Denver!!! Want a good Gyro? Go to Renzios in the food court at Park Meadows. Overrated food and Yanni's charm wore thin. Did not honor our open table reservation. Yanni needs to spend more time in the kitchen and less time pouring ouzo.

In the past Yannis was wonderful, and had a nice side room where it was quiet. This was very noisy, and they had a couple of very large parties near us, so the noise level was quite annoying. Unfortunately, it seemed as if they had only about 2 waiters and ours was too rushed, and not particular friedly. You would ask a question and she would run off not hardly letting you get a full answer or maybe ask another rquestion. I was disappointed as I thought their old location was so much better on Monaco, and parking so much easier. The owner was usually friendly, and just walked past us saying nothing. The food is generally good, and prepared well and the portions are very generous. The price is a bit higher than it was at the old location, but these new areas seem to just accept them. I would go back, not not in any big hurry. Thank you

I celebrated my birthday at Yanni's this year with 7 of my women friends. The restaurant gave us a table in a small dining room that was a little more private and quiet and our servers Yanni and Mike were so helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and my friends all enjoyed what they ordered. The added touch of the owner Yanni walking around offering everyone ouzo is always hilarious. They took into consideration that it was my birthday and really worked hard to make it special.

This was our second time here, and we were just as pleased as we were the first time. Two of us had chicken souvlaki and another had lamb souvlaki. We all enjoy the entrees along with the sides of rice and vegetables (green beans with onions and seasonings). And another had the macaronada. I've never seen such a huge helping of pasta - way too much for one person. The first time we came, we also had an appetizer, but we didn't this time because it is too much food. But I could make a meal just on their appetizers. And of course there was complimentary shots of Ouzo. We sat outside which originally we weren't planning to do because of the highway noise. But it was OK because our talking overrode it.

I came here to specifically try the saganaki, which was disappointing. They brought the cheese out without the fire. This was my first time eating this so am not sure how it was suppose to taste, but it was soggy and not very tasty. The service was good though, the waiter comes appropriately to ask if we need anything or if food is good. Me and my friends tried the sampler, which was also disappointing. But maybe this is what authentic Greek food is.
