This is always a special restaurant for my wife and I. We start with the hummus and grape leaves and usually eat a lamb dish. The kitchen is visible from from the indoor patio seating area. White table cloths, fresh bread to start and a relaxed dinner make it a 4-star choice.

We had delish lunch. All three dishes were outstanding. The restaurant was not very busy, so we received good service. We asked to talk to Chris, the owner. She came by our table and we asked her if she can provide more gluten items. It turns out they have a separate menu for gluten free, but the waitress did not... More

Well today I was once again surprised at what great food you can get at 3:00pm in Albuquerque!! I had the Lamb Shank with garlic mashed potatoes and it was absolutely amazing, the Lamb just falls apart with a knife or fork and it wasn't loaded with salt! My sister had a chicken entrée and she loved ever bite and... More

Yanni's is consistently excellent. From hearty dishes like the leg of lamb to light desserts like the berries Napoleon Yanni's has never disappointed. On my current 10 week sojourn to NM we visited Yanni's 5 times and each time the food was delicious and the service very friendly and efficient.

I love the atmosphere, the waitstaff and the food. There are many Greek and American options. Prices have gone up, however. One does not get the soup or salad with the meal any longer. I used to appreciate that a lot. I recommend the Greek red wine, Kourus Nemea.

Went here for the first time and was pleasantly surprised when we walked in to find a very pretty restaurant and white tablecloths. My husband and I shared the appetizer platter and the portobello mushroom salad. Both were delicious and was plenty to eat for the two of us. Our daughter had the vegetarian plate which was huge and had... More

Places come and go on Nob Hill but Yanni's continues to be solid, dependable, and reasonable. It is air-conditioned so it is bearable in the hottest of days when much of Central is sweltering. The food is solid Greek and tastes good and the staff is well trained and tries hard

Yanni's on Central Avenue does not begin to look as lovely from the outside as it is inside! We all had Greek dishes and they were prepared perfectly, served extremely pleasantly and were reasonable as well. Our Gyros and Souvlaki were some of the tastiest we have had. An excellent choice!

Very impressed with the service (Duane was the best, and extremely competent) and the moussaka alone makes this place worth a second visit. Very nice decor (much fancier than what it looks like from the outside). In a busy part of Nob Hill, the parking lot in back is much appreciated.

Thank Amy H
