A group of co-workers and I were in Albuquerque for training and ended up at Yanni's on our last night in town. 8 different meals (spinach fettuccine, New York strip, filet mignon, salmon, and a couple of the specials that night) and each one was wonderful. Great service, amazing food, and my first taste of a Moscow Mule (which I... More

Lamb shank, nicely done. Service, cordial and capable. Pleasantly adapted seating space in what mush once have been an auto shop, sunlight streaming across the floor at lunch hour.

Upon a recent visit to NM for business I picked up a local magazine which happened to have a readers poll on the best of the best. Yanni's had 7 wins! Best greek, best dessert, best seafood, and best lunch spot, best happy hour... and I forgot the other two. So of course we had to try it out. We... More

Thanks Trip Advisor for recommending Yanni's. We love good Greek food and are always looking for it when we travel. Saw the write-ups on TA and decided to give it a try. It was wonderful. The restaurant is located in the Nob Hill neighborhood of Albuquerque. It is a good sized restaurant with an open feel to it. The ambiance... More

We were in Albuquerque for a week and Yanni's was referred to us. It is most excellent in every way. We went twice in the time we were there and will certainly return again. The first time we sat outside; the next time was in enclosed patio. Both lovely. And we had the same thing both times--appetizer platter and two... More

This place will not disappoint. I love to go here with the wife. Plates range from $15-$20 mostly. We usually split an appetizer and a meal and it is plenty for two.

I always enjoy eating at Yanni's when I am in Albuquerque. The food is excellent, the atmosphere delightful and it is very conveniently located. The only complaint is when you order a Greek Salad they do not put in olives and when you ask for them, they charge you $1 or $2 which I think is wrong.

I, the out of towner, with two ABQ "locals" decided to check out Yanni's for a Thursday night dinner. No reservation and walked right in at about 7 PM. Very friendly waitress, took our drink order quickly, but from that point on all "timely" service went into European mode (I lived there 5 years). Among our choices for the evening... More

Ok, ok. I have never been to Greece. However, if I had this is the closest I could picture to the cuisine I'd get to sample there. We took my Dad here for his birthday and while I had never dined here my folks had and wanted to return. I have a rather eclectic palate compared to most and will... More

I do not recommend you waste your money going here. The food was below average a small portion. Both me and my husband looked at each other and said were not coming here again. Not only the food was poor but ther was a homeless man begging for bread and blabbering stuff the whole meal. Lets just put it this... More
