I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The scallops in mushrooms and brussels sprouts were wonderful.

Five stars again for a beautiful and ample takeout dinner for six. Try the mezza appetizer tray and the assortment of kabobs. Add a fatoush salad and voila!! Yalla!!!!

Really, really like the atmosphere at Yella. Very cozy, charming, and welcoming. I have been here about 4 times in the past two years. The food has always been very tasty and looks beautiful on the plate. I think the food is very good, but not great. I want to like it more since I love the atmosphere and the... More

The restaurant is in the center of Andover and offers good selection of Mediterranean food. I love the Turkish tea sets- maybe that's what I go for...great tacos and sliders! Good salads. Food is tasty and service is great.Really good (not crowded) for lunch. Doesn't offer a lot of privacy, but great for chatting and enjoying meal with company.

The menu at Yella Grille is enticing but the execution needs some refinement. The shredded chicken with Meditteranean rice was nicely flavored with cinnamon; however, the chicken was too dry to be tasty. the honey basil ice tea with fresh mint was lovely, even on a cold & windy day. The hummus & chips is a winner! Service was good

Yella grill is a small restaurant, only a few guest can be served. The menu card is well balanced. Kitchen serves good food displayed elegantly on the plate. Nice beers are served inclusive beers from micro-breweries. We had a nice business dinner We recommend Yella

We went as a party of 4 and sat at the front window. The restaurant is small but quite comfortable. Appetizer of chicken wings is OUTSTANDING! Really delish. Each of us had a different main course. The lamb parpadelle was delicious as was the cod tenderloin. The Statler Chicken and the assorted meat plate were also delicious. Service was excellent.... More

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

Description
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.
