“Good casual Greek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We had picked up takeout from Yanni in the past, but this was our first sit-down meal there. They have a pretty good sized menu (only missing my favorite- Pastitsio) including vegetarian options. We all ordered gyros- beef and chicken. Delish! They come deconstructed with the pita and tzatziki on the side so you can fill it however you like. Stuffed grape leaves (dolmades) are awesome too. My husband, who's not really a big fan of them, even said they were really good. For a Friday night, it wasn't too busy, so service was good. We indulged in dessert without regret. Baklava was fairly small but it was so rich that you didn't really need much more. The custard pie (galaktoboureko) however was huge! We actually took 1/2 of it home.

In all, a good casual place to hang out with friends over a good meal.

“The only greek food around”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2011

If you're desperate it's worth a try and will satisfy your craving but the food is not particularly good or well priced. The place is pretty dingy.

“Fresh and Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2010

Ate a quick luch at Yanni and was very pleased with the food. Very fresh and delicious. Service was good and meat/salads were great.

I will definately visit next time I am in New Paltz.

“FL kin up for family reunion praises greek yogurt.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2009

Establishment easy to like. Stopped for early snack before prearranged luncheon engagement elsewhere. enjoyed the spices and honey. checked all the menus. could have found many choices that would be pleasing. soups were popular item day we were there. service friendly and impartial. place clean. display case refilled by time we left with desserts. someone always available bu did not hover. I liked that. informal dress and fan was cooling afor our table towards back.
