The sitting in this restaurant is limited inside. Food is good but a bit overprice, in my opinion. Service was good.

I so want to give this restaurant a higher review, but it just doesn't live up to Mediterranean food. The shared Meze is really nice, but the main course choice is limited. We had a dish that included eggplant dip, but it was so smokey...More

My family had a dinner to celebrate a birthday there, and it was a very enjoyable experience. Not only was the food well prepared & presented, but the service excellent. The outside patio was very nice in the summer, too.

This is a small quaint restaurant that is a gem. The service was second to none and the food was outstanding. The mussels, onion soup and Greek salad were prepared perfectly. The entrees of baked cod and pan seared scallops were delicious. This restaurant is...More

Yella, which means “Come On, Let’s Go” in Lebanese, is a Modern Mediterranean Grille located in the heart of downtown Andover. Chef Carlo Berdahn and his wife Danielle together co-own the picturesque bistro, bringing a new and fresh dining option to the Merrimack Valley. The intimate space and updated décor provide a warm and relaxed atmosphere, while its crisp linens and open layout give the dining room a comfortable and inviting setting. Lebanese inspired, these beautifully plated dishes remain true to the hearty traditions of regional cooking; warm soups, dark lentils, subtle teasing spices, velvety risotto, crispy pan seared fish, succulent lamb and delectable desserts. Chef Berdahn uses his culinary expertise to create classic, yet modern Mediterranean dishes.
