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
The 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.
Two wonderful patios
complement the dining room and lounge 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!
