Northern Mediterranean Cuisine in Southern California

Yanni's Bar & Grill has fulfilled the need for a great restaurant in the Poway and Scripps Ranch area. A loyal following of guests comes from Rancho Bernardo, Ramona and Escondido, even traveling from as far as Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Julian and Point Loma.

Yannis MusselsThe feeling at Yanni's Bar & Grill is elegant and sophisticated without being stuffy. Simplicity is the focus: delicious food served in a comfortable, spotlessly clean environment.

Proprietors Yanni & Denise Pihas are veterans in the hospitality industry, and owned a very successful restaurant in Sherman Oaks. Previously they worked for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in several locations throughout the United States.

In keeping with Yanni's and Denise's heritage, the menu reflects a fusion of northern Mediterranean cuisine with predominant influences of Greece and Italy.

The open kitchen allows the guests to enjoy the view of the culinary action. A wonderful terrace complements the dining room and is perfect for dining al fresco.

A very extensive wine list was designed to complement the menu and has a very good balance between old and new world wines with some hard-to-find wines and vintages from Yanni's private cellar. Yanni features his own wine label called “Grano Greco” (Yanni's nickname), along with a large variety of wines by the glass. Quite often Yanni will open an exceptional wine to make it available by the glass.

Come and visit Yanni's Bar & Grill for a gourmet lunch or a memorable dinner!

Yanni & Denise

“The menu at Yanni's has a generous mix of Greek and Mediterranean food, sure to satisfy everyone.”
