We landed were hungry and my aunt took us to Yannis. Here I am looking for a new Mexican cuisine and we go to a Greek restaurant. Boy were we surprised I have the rack of lamb chops over salad with cucumbers and watermelon and the spicy chili mashed potatoes it was amazing. She had these stuffed poblano chile which... More

We were looking forward to dining at Yanni's after attending the superb production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at Popejoy. We were seated on the patio which was very nice since it was a mild day. The restaurant is very pretty with blue and white decor. Our waitress, Nirvana, was pleasant and attentive. I... More

Good quality food and a huge variety. The souvlaki was really good. They are happy to do a kitchen split on entrees. A very enjoyable dining experience.

Poor service. We arrived at 1:30pm today Fri.!for lunch. We had an Entertainment card (which had no restrictions listed) and we were quickly told we could not use it on Fridays. We immediately ordered a glass of wine and a martini. The bread arrives, no drinks; the appetizer arrives, no drinks; seconds before the main course arrives, we finally receive... More

I loved that there was plenty of free parking behind this place since it is in the busy Nob Hill section of downtown Albuquerque near the UNM campus. I was told by a local to go there for lunch. The Lamb shish kabob on the specials menu was cooked perfectly. It was served over red swiss chard and wild rice... More

A friend and I were in Albquerque for the day to do some shopping. We decided to have a late lunch at Yanni's and we were starving! The restaurant is clean but shows signs of age and lack of maintenance. A lot could be done to improve the appearance and ambience although the garden room with the sunlight streaming in... More

I will caveat immediately this by saying my parents' meals were apparently delicious. They had the filet and the pork chop and both were well done (and which is all that is saving this from a one-star review). I thought I'd branch out a little and try the special - acorn squash with seafood. This was a HORRIBLE idea. I... More

We have not been to Yanni's for about 7 or 8 years. The food was not particularly memorable. The quality and presentation of the dishes was very unreliable and the service was almost nonexistent. Fot some reason we decided to try it again and were again disappointed. Our dinners were nothing to write home about and quite expensive for what... More

This place was recommended by a local business colleague. Best thing is the ambiance. Food was very good but nothing incredible. Calamari was nice. Lamb chops were very good but did not knock my socks off. Latte was great and creme Brule was standard. If in area worth going.
