Honestly, I’ll start with my drink. I’m a bourbon drinker and drink my bourbon on the rocks. I ordered a Wild Turkey 101 on the rocks, my drink arrived to the table lightly colored and had no bite for a 101 proof bourbon. As it was not a big menu the choices are limited. My companion and I both ordered the Catch of the Day (Pan Seared Salmon, mine with asparagus and mashed potatoes hers with broccolini and jasmine rice. Both were ordered medium but arrived slightly over. The general presentation was very nice but had a dollop of some sauce that was not presented well and not very tasty, which we both removed. Although cooked slightly over, the salmon was “ok”, and the sides were tasty. We also shared the créeme brûlée which was delicious but the brûlée was thick and did not make for a good chew. In my honest unbiased opinion, the ambiance was noisy and busy but nice. The decor was tasteful and spacious for a small venue. Service was very nice (thank you Olivia) but the food average and the bourbon was weak, and not in line with the cost of the meal ($150+ w/tip)

It has been a while since we’ve been truly tickled by a restaurant but last night Yanni‘s did and knocked it out of the park. We’ve shopped several times & been delighted in buying cases of really nice wine. We thought we would give the restaurant to go and it did not disappoint. From the warm greeting coming in to the fresh baked hot bread, we immediately knew it was going to be a special evening. The knowledge and caring of the staff was exceptional and the food well prepared and well portioned. As wine lovers we also appreciated that there was no markup whatsoever on the wine bottles which was lovely. Thanks Yianni’s you are our new favorite!

Our waitress didn’t seem to be that well trained. She ask if we had dine there before and we said no. Then she handed us the card for the cuvée and didn’t show us how to use it.
The ventilation system seems to be not working properly. When we walked in the front door was open and it was hot outside. We were told it was because of the smoke from the kitchen. This happened again before we finished our dinner. In my opinion a restaurant should never have to open a door to clear smoke out the building.

Date with my husband. We shared the smoked fish board. It was excellent. Homemade bread, house smoked fish. Couldn’t have been better. We’ll be regulars now.

First time trying this spot - won't be the last!

Our waiter, Nathan, was attentive and always there when you needed anything. The sommelier, Chris, was knowledgeable and let us know of the benefits of buying wine at his establishment. The chef even came out to ensure our food was as expected - salmon and rack of lamb - both exceptional.

Thanks! We'll be back....

first time in and I really enjoyed the fact that it was inside a wine store and had many bottles available on an enomatic machine that enables self pours of numerous bottles associated with their 4 different machines located in various parts of the restaurant. Form a taste, to a half glass to a full pour and all self serve via your enomatic card. the fillet is probably the best we've had in the city of VB. Having a nice crust, perfectly seasoned and topped with a truffle butter. they also have frequently rotating styles of various deviled egg appetizers. one of the few non-asian restaurants that has a whole fish on the menu. We also had the braised pork belly which was very good. the Skillet cookies were a unique concept with the ice cream and caramel and raspberry drizzle. a tad too sweet for my taste but I can see how they would be a hit with most western palettes. while not a large menu, it has something for everyone and is expertly executed by Chef Cody. it is a high energy place and everybody seems to be having a good time with the concept. While the enomatic is fun, it pulls one towards a fatter than normal check. we will return regularly for the food and the fun.

Yianni’s is absolutely fantastic in every way you would expect from a fine dining establishment. The service is impeccable, friendly, and they take the time to get to know you. The sommeliers are knowledgeable, yet down to earth, and will spend the time to understand what you enjoy, before blindly recommending a wine. When they do recommend a wine, they take your price point into account and have never missed a great recommendation for my wife and I. The kitchen staff, from the executive chef down through the cooks and preppers nail every dish, every time. Chef Codie is a master with wild game, fish, beef, lamb, and every accompanying dish he’s ever plated for us.

Yianni’s is a “must go” for anyone who enjoys a night out where the table is yours as long as you want it. Go now!

We celebrated a friend’s 55th birthday here. Very fun vibe. Unbelievable wine selection and cocktail menu. All wines from the shop are available tableside with no corking fee. Very nice, small, menu options. Service was impeccable. Would be a great date night spot!
