This is a friendly, small restaurant that attracts regular diners. The seafood was good and service was very good.

Four of us had an OK dinner. We started with the meza platter, nothing special. Bland veg grape leaves, OK falafel, the baba was good, smoky. I chose a greek salad and the grilled octopus and was very disappointed. The grilled octopus was extremely chewy / rubbery, it really seemed more boiled than grilled and not tenderized at all. Yes...

We went there with colleagues this evening for dinner. I had a special which was a bone in strip steak with roasted mushrooms and crispy shallots and truffle fries. It was absolutely fantastic. Steak was perfectly cooked (medium rare to rare with a wonderful salty crust on it). The unsung star were the truffle fries. I am not one who... More

This is a small quaint restaurant that is a gem. The service was second to none and the food was outstanding. The mussels, onion soup and Greek salad were prepared perfectly. The entrees of baked cod and pan seared scallops were delicious. This restaurant is perfect for a special night out or just looking for fine dining.

In the center of Andover a small restaurant where booking yur table is highly recommended Sea food menu inspired by Mediteranean tastes is well cooked on demand. Good wine list as well. The 2 issues are mostly coming from the success this place encountered. Noisy because crowded and long waiting time because every course are freshly cooked. Otherwise all good... More

Really enjoyed the food. Had a lovely black beer to go with it, which was very tasty! I had the scallop main course and my only comment would be that I could have eaten more, the portion was a little small. All in all I enjoyed what I had and it was a good place for a business meal.

Really nice. Unique and tasty Med dishes created with care in this couple-run specialty restaurant. Interesting wine pours. Small, so make a reservation, but this is the best restaurant in Andover.

Food was good, but pricey. Nice decor, cozy. Was busy the night we went, lots of PA students. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Small and cozy space with flavorful dishes—lots of great taste combinations, so many, in fact, that you can easily make a meal of appetizers if you're so inclined. This has become one of my go-to places. And while I've taken my grandchildren here as well, and they've liked the food very much also, and the bonus of Yella's small, intimate,... More

You will not find a TV on the wall but a small place with very friendly service. Very nice Cod Tenderloin and Mezza Platter. Does serve various Mediterranean dishes, all prepared with care. Interesting wines.

Description
Yella, which means “Come On, Let’s Go” in Lebanese, is a Modern Mediterranean Grille located in the heart of downtown Andover.

The intimate space and updated décor provide a warm and relaxed atmosphere, while its crisp linens and open layout give the dining room a comfortable and inviting setting. Lebanese inspired, these beautifully plated dishes remain true to the hearty traditions of regional cooking; warm soups, dark lentils, subtle teasing spices, velvety risotto, crispy pan seared fish, succulent lamb and delectable desserts. Chef Berdahn uses his culinary expertise to create classic, yet modern Mediterranean dishes.
