Went there because two restaurants had >90 minutes wait. Service was fine. Could have a bit more attention toe presentation of dishes, salad was hard to eat due to plate size lettuce size mismatch. I'd would not plan on eating there again

This is a homey feeling place, just like the places found throughout Greece. The menu contained all of the classic Greek dishes.

I have been going to Yiannis for Greek food since I moved to Claremont in 1977. I particularly like their moussaka and I have always loved their baklava for dessert. On Sunday mornings they make good Greek omelets, too.
