Having grown up in the Inland Empire I have many happy memories of eating Greek food at Yianni's with my family. It was always one of my favorite restaurants as a teenager. In the mid-1980s I joined the Navy and moved away from California, living in four countries, a handful of U.S.states, and traveling to six continents. In the 30... More

As you wander the 'downtown' of Claremont keep your eyes open for this restaurant on Yale near Bonita, it's easy to pass. The food is ethnic and wonderful, can be slightly altered to taste if requested. Family run for the 50 years I've been going there. Good place for a quiet meal/ambiance.

We had walked by Yiannis Greek Restaurant a number of times during our visit to Claremont. We arrived a little late and were surprised that on a Saturday night there was only one table occupied on the outside and we were the only ones inside. However, we persevered and were not disappointed. The dinner special menu was a 'real deal'... More

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.

My mom was visiting and wanted to treat me for my past birthday. We had agreed to eat at a Greek/Mediterranean food restaurant. We originally chose one in LaVerne, but we found out upon getting there that it did not open on Sundays. We immediately decided to go to the next town over since Yelp listed Yiannis prominently in their... More

On a Saturday evening when our three favorite Claremont restaurants had no seating in the 6:30-7:30 window, four us opted to go to Yiannis. i was assured that no reservation was necessary. Very true as there was only one table occupied when we entered. at about 7. Bad sign. The warm atmosphere upon entereing on a cool rainy evening, however,... More

Yes, I went to college in Claremont in the ´70s. There were and are tons of restaurants then as now but Yiannis is hands down my favourite. When I return every couple of years to Claremont, it is to visit this restaurant more than the campus! Food always good but the cozy ambience and friendliness of the owners is what... More

My wife and I have been eating at Yiannis since 1988 and we have always enjoyed the food and service. What can we say about the menu we have tried all of the food that is listed. The two waiters are the owners and they always make us feel welcome! Do try the ozou!

I like Yanni's. We have been eating here for more than 25 years, and we returned last month. The food is good. It's tasty Greek fare. It is not fancy gourmet food. The slouvaki is always good. Washed down with a glass of retsina, you can't miss. It's not a modern restaurant. The interior is dark and the Greek-flavored decor... More
