A lamb shank worthy of Fred Flintsone

I was looking for some pastichio, Greek lasagna, and that dish was on their menu so off we went. The egg lemon soup was well prepared, the Greek salad was incredibly fresh, the pastichio was tasty and enhanced by a sauce rich with cinnamon, but the hit of the evening was the lamb youvetsi.

We came here due to the high ratings from TripAdvisor, OpenTable, and the like. I really don't understand what the hype is about. The bread was hard as a rock. It's a good thing we were given a sharp knife. The oil and spices were good. My wife got the octopus and said it was the best thing she ate... More

Each and every time I visit Yianni's Taverna in Bethlehem, PA I have no regrets at all. First the atmosphere will put you in the spirit of the Greek Islands. The Greek Blue is captivating. Then when you peek at the portfolio of delights that grace the menu you will be hard pressed to enjoy it all. You MUST try... More

Ordered the soup du and I was unpleasantly surprised to find a miniature life forms in the soup. As I dined the house across the street was on fire and I swear the staff was smirking about it. Never again. Should be shut down.

I was here on Valentine's Day. It was a very busy night at the restaurant. Right away I was relaxed by the soft lighting and crisp white and blue colors. We were early for our reservations because of the snow. We let the hostess know and asked her if she could possibly sit us early. She said she would see... More

My boyfriend and I were impressed by the romantic atmosphere at this restaurant. We sat in the relaxing chairs and had some happy hour wine for $5/glass to begin (until 7 most days) then we moved on to dinner. Everything is delicious. Tony was our waiter and he was very attentive and helpful. Great evening overall.

We made reservations and got there 10 minutes early and had no problem getting a seat as we are early eaters and we off to a show after dinner. But the place began to get more and more full as we ate, so I think on a weekend you may want to make a reservation in case. So, we were... More

we celebrated New Year's Eve with a flavorful dinner at Yianni's. I started with beet salad, which was terrific. The huge pastitsio was a great choice. My husband loved his smelt and spinach and cheese puffs. We look forward to returning to try other specialties.

Comfortable dining room, the color coordination tied in nicely with the Greek theme. The food was good, not great but probably worth a return trip for seafood. The menu was very good but the food did not command the price and so I would have to say the value was average compensated for by the other attributes. The service was... More
