Some of the best Greek food I've had. Friendly and attentive service and nice atmosphere. We asked our waitress for recommendations and loved all her suggestions. Nice Greek wine list too!

We came for happy hour on the advice of friends. The atmosphere is very pleasant with lots of different areas to sit: outside, large indoor area and more intimate bar setting with tables. We ordered the pitchers of red sangria - amazing! And one of us had the beer on tap - for HH. We also had 2 orders of... More

Hiding just off the main road, Route 378, at the edge of Bethlehem city - is a fair sized building hiding a treasure bedecked in blue & white. This Greek tavern is huge and never runs out of ambient sound nor atmosphere. Everything is so formal, but that plays to its advantage. The food is certainly palatable, and the staff... More

Several trips have confirmed my opinion that the food is fair, service is ok and overpriced considering what I just said.

Had the spit-roasted lamb, delectable fish, the eggplant-tomato combo, accompanied by the lemon potatoes, green beans, spinach-rice dish, Horta (greens), tomato-cucumber salad, the stuffed grape leaves, the beet salad and retsina. All excellent! Only disappointed by the mussels. One of us is gluten-free and dairy-free, thankful that the menu is marked for GF and vegan. The server also very helpful... More

The decor is simple but it does remind you of Greece and everything looks elegant. We had the octopus and the saganaki which are both favorites as stated in the menu. Rightfully so as both were delicious! We then had the pork and chicken souvlakis (pork is better, more tastier) and the beef / lamb and chicken gyros. The beef... More

My wife and I made a last second stop at Yianni's Taverna, last Saturday night. We had no reservations but were welcomed to sit in the bar area which had some bar tops as well as bar seating. The staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating. The bar area was not busy when we first sat, but that changed over... More
