Went to Yianni's this evening for my cousin's birthday, restaurant was busy, fun, loud atmosphere, just like Yianni's I remember. Then the food came out- it wasn't good at all. We ordered a platter to share and pork/chicken soulvaki skewers. Used to taste rich, fresh...More

Simply the best combination of location and food possible for Greek cuisine in Edmonton. Always good, but when the weather warms up and doors to the street open there is not a better spot in the city to enjoy Whyte Avenue while dining on excellent...More

We stopped in with a friend for lunch. I had desert - the cheesecake with walnut sauce. My wife and her gf loved their Greek salad and chicken skewers.

Anytime I have been here, the food is spectacular! I have tasted many a calamari in Alberta and Yiannis has one of the best! The appetizers are more than filling. Try the calamari and melitzano.

I am sorry for your experience. I absolutely do not remember this incident. With the amount of phony reviews you should provide specific details about what you ate etc. It lends more credibility to the review.

Yiannis serves Greek food that is inspired by traditional recipes and healthy living. Our chef, James Anast, tries to encompass every aspect of Greek cookery, from its inherent healthfulness, to its history and customs in our menu. We are located in our own building on trendy and historic Whyte Ave and have a warm and ambient room that evokes thoughts of the Mediterranean. To further enhance your dining experience there is belly-dancing on weekends and a beautiful Moroccan lounge in our lower floor for you to sip some tasty libations before or after your dinner.
