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

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

The service was very rushed and the music too loud to really enjoy dinner with friends. The bread was surprisingly non interesting for a greek restaurant. The starters were ok (the grilled octopus was great) but the entree portions were very variable, chicken was large and the cod was tiny (tomato sauce was not that great either). Finally a Greek...

I had an incredible beet salad...so amazingly delightful. We also had 3 of the dips..cucumber, eggplant, and garlic. I would leave the eggplant off next time- slimey and lacked flavor. The food was expensive, but prepared to perfection! I would surely return my next time to PA.

I worked in a Greek restaurant in NY for years and am very familiar with Mediterranean cuisine. Typically it is simply prepared, fresh and delicious. The food at Yianni's just didn't wow me. It seemed rather bland and I actually left half sitting on my plate, which is unusual for me. It all needed more garlic, lemon, mint, SOMETHING. It... More

Yianni's is a beautiful place for a special night out, we've chosen it on several occasions to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. We've always found the servers to be knowledgeable and eager to please, even on a busy night. I really enjoy the moussaka and beet salad, while my husband flips over the Agean Platter.

Tonight was our fourth time dining there and it is consistently delicious. We live 45 minutes away, but don't mind the drive for this place. The service, the atmosphere, and the extensive menu make it such a great night out. We received a warm welcome, and had a very attentive server who offered suggestions when we asked her a few...

We went here because it is close. People who love it, really love it. I don't think there is an inbetween crowd. You go once and you love or you don't. We didn't, but then we are not nuts about greek food.

Plenty of off street parking. Very easy access for handicap. Every meal we have had here is good. Some outdoor seating. We love the stuffed grape leaves. Rice and herbs stuffing is just right. Plenty to share. Another favorite app are the lamb mini meatballs with yummy sauce. Dip some bread in this. Homemade bread and olive oil are served.... More
