My husband and I discovered Yianni's about a month ago and have been going ever since. Love the food and drinks! Best gyros around. Also great artichock,spinach and feta dip to go with a Mediterranean Sangria. We love eveything about this place....the food,the drinks,the atmosphere and Meredith the bartender!

Visited during restaurant week and enjoyed the appetizer, entrée and dessert for a reasonable $30. The appetizer was a delightful lamb and beef meatball (3) combination topped with a delicious sauce. The entrée was a generous lamb steak portion with artichokes, while the dessert called embek was Seminole (sp) custardy based which typically you wont find in a Greek restaurant.... More

Mother is not easy to please, but she was very happy to have long lunch at Yianni's Taverna. They had one of the most extensive menus that I have ever seen in a Greek restaurant, and the appetizers were as good as the main dishes. Great to dine at a place with something for everyone.

We stopped in today before a flight to Atlanta. The restaurant is quite beautiful. I was super impressed. Appetizers were delicious. Saganaki, tiropita and spanakopita. The pastitsio was one of the best I've ever had. Although it was 1230 on a Saturday and the restaurant had a few filled tables, the service was much slower than it should have been.... More

The main courses were fresh whole fish, lamb chops and veal with shrimp and lump crab meat. All the entrees were exceptional. Accompanied by Sparkling Napa wine from Mumm winery.

I live in NYC but when I visit my bf's parents we always come here. Elegant, clean, nice place, with an authentic atmosphere. When it's sunny and the music is on you feel like you're in Greece! The only thing I would like to point is the room temperature : it is always pretty cold especially in winter. I hope... More

Even in Bethlehem, PA you get the flavor of Greece at Yianni's. Since I've been to Greece I can say that this is true Greek cooking. The wine and the food is authentic, even singing "Happy Birthday" was in Greek. We've had fish, gyros, and lamb and everything was excellent. The Greek wine is terrific too!

Reserved a table for 17 for our son's graduation dinner on May 18th. Called in advance to emphasize that 10 out of 17 of us were ordering lamb and that is was important to be done medium rare (pink). Reminded waiter that night. Supposed spit-roasted lamb arrived over-done and gray in color. The green beans were mushy. Most of our... More
