Went to Taverna Yamas on Labor Day. The Hookah lounge was full but we had the dining room to ourselves. Floors were sticky, booth was greasy. Zero paper products in the ladies room. Should have left. Ordered the whole snapper with some trepidation but it turned out to be half way decent. I will not be returning and would not... More

Nice spot with beautiful décor. Went with a group - belly dancing starts at 8. Ordered the flaming cheese - AMAZING. Also had the moussaka which was fair. Wish they would carry kotopita - a little pricey but nice.

I was in Jacksonville, FL for business and saw Taverna Yamas as I drove around to see what was near my hotel. Greek food? Great! The happy hour with 1/2 prices was terrific, and the Margarita was very good. But they first brought me a 'martini' by mistake. Not my father's martini - it was a bit like a Margarita.... More

Great atmosphere - lots of fun. The management staff is truly friendly and make you feel at home. The food is good - not outstanding - but worth the money. The house wines are good and priced comfortably. Can't go wrong with this place. I recommend going in the evenings.

Visited as part of a team building lunch with a party of 15. Service was slow, even for a large party. The restaurant only had a few other tables buys and one other large group. Food was fresh, but lacked flavor. I had the lamb wrap. Price was very reasonable based on the amount of food, which was plenty.

Went with a group for an early dinner. Exterior...strip mall+. Interior...dark, dingy, noisy. Service...prompt, friendly. Expected a Greek salad in a Greek restaurant would be great, but it was mediocre at best. No one was talking about how great their food was. No reason to return.

I go here at least once a week to happy hr with coworkers. We Only sit outside in their patio area overlooking the parking lot because the inside is dark and nasty. The booths inside are dirty, nasty and all the cushions have burnt mark on them. The bathroom is just as awful. The only reason we continue to come... More

Liked: NOTHING. Have been to this restaurant so many times and loved it. Everything was always so good: the tzatziki, hummus, gyros, potatoes, really everything!! I have NO idea what happened, Went there on January 6th and ended up getting it to go. It was a big disappointment, The calamari was the stuff you'd get in the freezer section of... More

I love greek food, this place has it. The music, flying napkins, and pretty belly dancers complete the experience. A great place for groups, even large ones. They accommodate you very well and while it's exciting and fun, it's not so loud you can't enjoy your friends....
