Even on the chilliest day of the season, the atmosphere at this family-owned and -managed Nob Hill favorite was warm and inviting. The menu included traditional Greek specialties but was longer on other dishes -- fish, chicken, lamb. We split a plate of beef dolmas in a toothsome aviglemono sauce, then tucked into what had been listed as a cup... More

The ambience and service were great. I had the vegetarian combo; however, I don't like grape leaves so the server allowed me to sub those for the mashed potatoes, which were excellent. I have to say that the best food on my plate was the vegetables. I'm not sure what they did to them (possibly adding some love drug to... More

We had to beg for more water, silverware, coffee, bread, check. Coffee was served with coffee spilled down side of cup, no offer of sugar, no spoon. Food was average- certainly unremarkable and not worth the terrible service.

Food portions are large and tasty. Our waitress was excellent, having the knack of when we required something. However it is time they paint the dining room. It really brings down the the experience.

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
