Yannis is closed due to a fire 2 days ago. They are the best family and place to go. We will be the first in line when they reopen.

I went with the family. The food was very good. The waiters dance to traditional greek music occasionally, which was great for the kid and adults. Nice wine list, and very tasty lamb. They have a few whole fish specials not on the menu that were awesome. I would definitely go again.

We have been back to this restaurant a number of times. At this visit we noticed that the menu was changed and it was much smaller. Our favorite is lamb shank with orzo but it was removed from the menu and we were disappointed. We ordered leg of lamb and it was tough.

This was the best restraunt that I have ever been to and I have been to alot of restraunts. The food was outstanding the server was spectacular and knowledgeable. The place was quiet and would be perfect for any occasion especially anniversary or just a date. I live over 3 hours away and would make the trip again just to eat there again.

We had very high hopes for Yianni's Taverna. Unfortunately it was terrible. Although I love greek food, this was the worst I've had. The food either had no taste or was so overcooked and/or burnt. My Lamb gyro platter was so dry and overcooked that the lamb was actually crunchy...a first in my lifetime. The moussaka was not good, the scallops were cooked to rubber...even the mainstay Horiatiki salad had no flavor. And the prices were absurdly high for the food that was served. Sadly, it was really a miserable dinner experience.

Not my first visit and it won't be my last. I got to take my parents here after raving for years about needing to go. They are not adventurous with food at all but trusted me. They both ended up LOVING what they got and were very very happy I convinced them to go. If you knew my parents, you'd know that's saying something. I have a feeling they'll go back on their own now that they got to enjoy the experience. Yianni's never ever disappoints!!!

WHAT A GREAT PLACE! My family and I were there the first time for Thanksgiving and then again for Mother's day. I traveled 90 minutes to get there and I will be back! The food is delicious. The staff are welcoming and we were able to spend quality family time without being rushed. I'm looking forward to the next visit!

We come in every Friday. Yesterday it was not busy and service was lacking. Waiter was not organized and brought out two dishes to us at a table of 5. 20 minutes later 1 more fish came out and then 5m later the final two dishes came out. Lamb chops were rare but ordered medium. Waiter picked up food off our places to look at the doneness and then expected us to eat it after he handled it. If you can sit at the bar Lindsay will ensure service doesn't suffer, but good luck if you are at a table.

Every time I dine here it is better than the last time. The best Greek cuisine that matches that I've had in Greece. The service is outstanding, the food is exactly as I remember it, and the menu varies by season. The staff is wonderful and the owner is so kind and warm. I can't wait to come back!

This was a central meeting place for 4 people from far away - they were restricted to fish and salads. And I love Greek Food. Yianni's had ALL the traditional Greek dishes and an amazing array of fish. The ambiance is very authentic, the waiter Salomon was extremely attentive, and it was some of the best Greek food I've ever had, and I am a huge Mediterranean foodie. I drove 84 miles one way to meet these folks (from Los Angeles), and I would drive back JUST to have the Skordalia. The cod dish was yummy too!

My companion and I have eaten here at least 5 times and there will be at least another 5(probably more) and every time has been a great dining experience . The food is always prepared correctly and the way we ordered it.
We normally get the Grape leaves, Greek salad, favorite is the Red Snapper however this time I opted for the Agean Platter and it tasted as good as it looked. Again my companion enjoyed her favorite the Red Snapper and sampled the Agean Platter and shared with me the Red Snapper which I put in the sauce of my dish which I have to admit compliments that dish perfectly. I think the next time I will order a side of rice pilaf to soak up the delicious sauce of my entrée .
My companion always tops it off with the Greek Cheesecake which as everything else is and that is excellent! Do your Dining Experience a favor and try Yianni's! You will not be disappointed!
