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

My friend and I stopped in for a nice Sunday afternoon dinner. We shared an appetizer, Tuna tartare with avocado, which was excellent in both taste and presentation. I had the whole grilled snapper with lemon potatoes and steamed greens.The fish and potatoes were excellent but the greens were bland. I also had a beet salad, which was good, but... More

Decided to stop and get a bite to eat after spending the day in Bethlehem. We had a great server Bobby. He made some recommendations and we took his advice. Didn't regret it. hubby had the moussaka and I had a gyro with lemon potatoes. We both enjoyed our meal. The ingredients were fresh and well prepared. I had a... More

We have eaten at Yianni's 3 times in the past few months and have never been disappointed. It's a bit off the beaten track, just off a barren stretch of Rt. 378 a mile or so south of southside Bethlehem. It's not much on the outside, but once inside you are transported. The bar/lounge area has a cool, contemporary feel... More
