Description: 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

I've been here twice and the food was very good both times. The ambiance is nice -- I've dined both inside and on the heated (enclosed) outdoor patio in winter. The service is good and the food tastes fresh. I will return again when in the mood for Mediterranean food. It's a little on the pricier side, but the portions are fairly large and the service and food is a step up from your typical casual fare.

This is one of those places, next to mid priced hotels that from a location viewpoint you might miss......don't. Good menu, good service, moderate prices and a place worth returning. Have been there for both lunch and dinner........many good menu choices so will not push one.

We were pleasantly surprised as the ambience was very nice. You could eat inside or out. The food was delicious and we booked our Christmas Gourmet Group dinner while we were there. Their wine list as well as the food list was very extensive.

We stayed at the Residence Inn in the same parking lot. Hotel staff referred us over. Not kid friendly menu. I had the seafood risotto and it was still crunchy. My husband was very happy with his filet.
