Yono's is an Albany legend that we hadn't been to in a decade -- it still has the charm and ambiance of its earlier incarnation even though you go through a noisy hotel bar to get there these days. Four of us went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The waiter heard us talking and added some small birthday items, which... More

I have a local friend who recommended I try this place out, so I went myself for lunch the Friday after Christmas. I ordered the lobster ravioli, which is a favorite dish of mine, and I've had pretty much every plate of it in Albany. I didn't think I could be surprised by anything around here, but I was wrong....

I reviewed this restaurant 2 years ago and it is so nice to be able to say that it just gets better! Yono's is an Albany highlight. This restaurant has seen several locations including a local car dealership. Fortunately, Yono's moved back to downtown Albany several years ago. Don't be fooled by its presence in a Hampton Inn! Yono's looks... More

Yono's is the best in Albany! Yono uses locally grown foods, local cheeses and meats to create unique flavors and blends of foods that are a gastronomic delight. There is a monthly fixed price tasting menu- this month focuses on Indonesian cuisine- paired with wines for each course- $64. The basic menu is so delicious that it was difficult to... More

This is a special occasion place for sure. At least for us average folk. The prices are astronomical. The food and service were impeccable, however. The only reason we went is because we had a Groupon and I'd been wanting to try this place forever.

I am someone who is on the road for over 100 nights a year. I have 4-5 restaurants that are destinations. Yono's is one of these. Better make a reservation as weekend night forget it. I have eaten at the bar which is one of the best locators in restaurant. Desserts are the best. Overall 5 stars no matter occasion

Right in the same building as the Hampton Inn, this place gets very busy and not surprising. the food is fantastic and purchased locally, November's menu is indonesian food as well as the usual fine wines. the staff are very accomodating and make sure all needs are met.

I ate at Yonos yesterday evening with a group from work. I am from Ireland and used to European restaurants and cuisine. Previous experiences of American restaurants have left me thinking quantity over quality was common in the US. However the meal I had at Yonos has made me reconsider my position. The Menu was varied, well thought out. There... More

This place was amazing! It was the first time my wife and I have eaten at Yono's. We met my parents there for an anniversary celebration and we have nothing but great things to say. Fantastic atmosphere, quiet and easy to have conversations. They had a live piano and upright bass playing which was a nice touch. Such great service:... More
