This was an amazing meal. The server was pleasant and very accommodating. We waited only a reasonable time, and the food was delicious! My husband had heard of Yiamas from a colleague at work, and we went with our two children (8 and 2) and my mother. Everyone enjoyed their food...which is not so common with my kids, from the...

I am vegetarian - only eat fish - so was very happy to find they served prawns. I have had MANY lunches there - it has become my group of 6 friends' fave meeting place. The owner is ALWAYS friendly and will try to accommodate special preferences.We will continue to lunch here and also special dinners - like my anniversary.... More

We have been to Yiamas a few times and consistently found the food to be very good. The portions are a decent size , the appetizers are great and the service is excellent.

After reading all the reviews n this date I expected a great meal. Instead, my lamb souvlaki was chewy and not very flavorful. Portions were small, too, though given the quality it is the least of my criticisms.

First went to Yiama's when it opened a couple of years ago. We really enjoyed the food and have been going regularly ever since. The food is always lovely and fresh and having now travelled to Greece, realize that it is quite authentic. They have some really fun Greek nights too, always heavily attended.

Nice relaxing atmosphere, Great service. The Lamb Roast dinner was great. The meat is so tender and all the roasted veggies so tasty. This is our 2nd time there. The first time we shared a Greek Platter which was more than enough for two. Their dessert was generous too..

Our family really enjoyed our recent lunch experience here. The restaurant is clean, bright and the big windows facing the street and their outdoor seating area was nice and appreciated. Our server was excellent in all aspects! She was very patient, calm and catered to us really well and professionally. The restaurant was busy but the atmosphere was not loud,... More

This is a wonderful restaurant! If you love Grrek food you won't find better anywhere but Greece. Chris and his staff are warm, friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere, lots of light and very pleasant. The desserts are to die for, and I had a Ouzo and Blackberry wine shooter that was heavenly. The garlic dip will melt your heart. Don't... More
