"I was looking for some "authentic" Greek food since my visit to Greece last summer where the food was wonderful. Since we went for lunch, I order the Moussaka with Greek vegetables. Very disappointed. The Moussaka was floating in grease from the fatty ground beef I presume. It left my entire plate greasy. The bechamel sauce on top was thick and consolidated and more the consistency of dough with little flavor. The skin on the eggplant was tough making it hard to cut even with a knife. The Greek vegetables were hard to distinguish, I guessed they were green beans with onions, etc. They were overcooked and mushy. I heard good reviews about this place so perhaps I ordered the wrong dish, however, my dining companion had some kind of sampler plate with chicken, rice, and salad and it looked like nothing special and the chicken was dry. Definitely won't go back; there must be better Greek food to be found in Denver!"

"Yanni's has been a part of the Denver metro community for sometime! Yanni, himself, is always present! With that in mind, I think he truly cares about his business and his customers, which only translates to incredible food. In many restaurants, you don't see or feel the presence of their owners in the restaurant. Yanni does care, and that is why you can't go wrong having a meal at Yanni's!!"

"The food was delicious. Was very happy with the vegetarian platter. Ouzo is always fun at Yanni's. Was given a good wine recommendation for a Greek wine, and really liked it. Comfortable place and great food."

"I have read all the reviews and was stunned at the quality of the gyros. They are pre-packaged strips meat. 5 very thing slices on awful pita bread with a sprinkling of diced tomatoes and very thinly sliced onions. For 12.95. This is supposed to authentic? I grew up eating Greek food. Where the gyro meat is cut off the roast on a spit turning on a rotisserie. I sent it back. And the smart aleck Yanni said that in 25 years no one has every complained about the gyros. I find that hard to believe. Wake up Denver!!! Want a good Gyro? Go to Renzios in the food court at Park Meadows. Overrated food and Yanni's charm wore thin. Did not honor our open table reservation. Yanni needs to spend more time in the kitchen and less time pouring ouzo."

"In the past Yannis was wonderful, and had a nice side room where it was quiet. This was very noisy, and they had a couple of very large parties near us, so the noise level was quite annoying. Unfortunately, it seemed as if they had only about 2 waiters and ours was too rushed, and not particular friedly. You would ask a question and she would run off not hardly letting you get a full answer or maybe ask another rquestion. I was disappointed as I thought their old location was so much better on Monaco, and parking so much easier. The owner was usually friendly, and just walked past us saying nothing. The food is generally good, and prepared well and the portions are very generous. The price is a bit higher than it was at the old location, but these new areas seem to just accept them. I would go back, not not in any big hurry. Thank you"
